is this unethical?

Postby tomas21 » Sat Nov 27, 2004 2:25 pm

say i have a pyoff spot locked up, with this week and next week to go. if i win the next two games, i'd go up against the strongest team, who happens to have the 3rd best record. if i lose one or both of the next two, i'd go against a higher ranked team that isn't as good, and i might have a chance to let my buddy sneak into the playoffs. is it unethical to throw the last game or two to give yourself a better playoff matchup?

Don't be that guy. I'd ear hole you if you did that in my league.
I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.
