He's starting guys like eddie kennison, boo williams,william green ect. He's benching Joe Horn, Droughns, Whitten, ect ect, honestly I don't even want to look at his team right now because it's just going to pi$$ me off.

I haven't paid the league fees as of yet, but I plan on doing it because otherwise I'll look like the bad person. I'm just going to look for a new league next year.


the matchups you cite are not that bad. all the players are starting. it's not like he's starting kurt warner and aaron stecker.

This is why we have 9 irons......if they do this, which is complete and utter B.S., I would suggest you take out the above mentioned club and splatter some heads!!
On a serious note, that is crap and I would demand my $$ back.
Where have all the honest people gone.?? Cheating at FF is pretty low man.

If it's against the rules (damn well should be) tell the commish to change it. If he doesn't change anything, don't pay.

Vick4MVP -

We have a rule in our league that EVERY week of the season, you get some jack if you post a W. If you lose your game, you have to cough $10 into the prize pool, however.

Every owner coughs up $10 for every LOSS they post, regardless of whether they have a shot at the playoffs or not.

Keeps idiots from doing what the guy in your league is doing, and keeps owners actively managing their team.

Consider it as a rule for next year.

One team in my league has won 5 high scorer of the week awards and already has already pocketed as much money as the guy who loses in the Super Bowl. He got bounced in the first round wild card game this week... by none other than me.

Another 3-10 team in the league has been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs for like five weeks, but he won the high scorer award in 2 of the last 3 weeks.

Reward the competitive players and most teams will play hard to the finish. IF some owners choose not to stay competitive, bounce them out of the league and find some new owners next year. If you league doesn't punish owners who go inactive or try to throw the game in some way, you need to find a new league.

P.S.- No way in hell I would pay league fees if there are owners trying to throw games....
