Cheers for that Bob. You're right that does work. But it still doesn't solve the fact that a players price can drop below what you bought him at, other people buy him at that price. His price then goes up and he's stayed at the price you had him at. You're being disadvantaged on a player you'd bought first.
It's ALWAYS been the case on YFF that when the database updates and a players price (you own) drops then it shows in your team. What are we supposed to do? Check our teams five times a day all week? Basically we now have to do what the system should be doing automatically. I do know the answer though. If you don't like it then don't play.... and I won't be after this season. Shame as I'd always enjoyed plating in our private league.
Figured they'd have all this stuff sorted by this time of the season. Too much trying to introduce new elements to the game (subs, captains and such). Not enough getting the basics and the usability right. Gutted!
Thanks for your reply though, much appreciated. :)

Ah hust ignore me :D. While I didn't have the "show players in budget" thing checked it wasn't showing him. Had to select it and then deselect it again to get him to appear. Thought him going missing from the database would be a big mistake even for TFF. Still though. Way too much fu**ing about to be done for just the simplest things on YFF now.

Cheers Netley, you're always good for a response on these boards. I get what you're saying mate I really do. But for me I don't have a lot of time to be spending on my team and so I do it once a game week at some time the day before the deadline.
If I have to check my team four times a day to see if there's been a tiny change to the system which has adjusted the players prices down a bit, then sell them and buy them back to get them at that price..... you know what? I'm not gonna bother. It's a shame because I like Yahoo Fantasy football in general, but to me this is an issue of fairness.
If you own a player and their price rises while you own them then you know that anyone buying after you can't get them at that price (I hope this still applies, it always has on YFF). Conversely buying a player who does bad and his price drops has ALWAYS meant that the value of their price drop is fed back into your team's budget. ALWAYS, until now.
After the week's games have been sorted and player's/team's scores have been calculated, player values should be changed according to their performance. Players who drop in price should drop and the money go back into your budget. Then the prices values should stay the same until they've been recalculated after the next week's games and so on.
I reckon you're right though Netley. This has all come about because of the issues they've been having since the start of this year. They're spending so long messing about with them that they've compromised the whole system. Maybe this is what they're actually aiming for though. To make it like the real premier league. Generally unfair, disappointing and in a lot of cases not really representative of skill.

Sometimes it works as it should and you don't have to. But alas on occasion it doesn't do it automatically and if you don't spot it you get shafted. Total bulls***. It's possible and has happened in our league, where someone can buy a player after you at a lower price than you got him at because it hasn't changed the price down on a player you owned first. Load of old w***.
When a players price drops below what you bought him at, why the f*** are we having to drop them and buy them back to get the player at their new low value. Of all the things that's s*** about the new fantasy football, that's the s***est.
