Conspiracy theorist?!?

Postby mad benjamin » Tue Dec 14, 2004 4:36 am

My commish said that I was always looking for a conspiracy, but there are things which happen and appear rather seedy that I openly question, just to keep things above-board. Maybe this makes me seem like a dissenter or complainer, but I want to make sure everything happens w/in the confines of the rules.

This week, I played the guy who had Owens in his lineup and Duckett on his bench. We cannot make lineup changes from noon Sunday until Tues. @9am. Clearly, Owens was in the starting category as I had checked on the update yesterday morning. Yesterday afternoon, I checked on the site for something and saw the score had changed dramatically and that Owens had been replaced w/Duckett. Fortunately, it didn't impact the outcome, but what if it had? What if something like this happens during our playoffs? The commish said that no one tampered w/ his lineup, that he was the only one who could have reset it and didn't and that I was always looking for a conspiracy.

Earlier this year, I dropped Clayton (before he was a bonafide starter) and picked up Wayne. I saw that the commish had over-ridden the ww. waiting period and picked him up a day early! I said something about this, he gave kind of a lame excuse that he thought his computer was wrong and wondered how Clayton was on ww. and that he would drop him if it made me feel better. I told him I just wanted things to be above-board.

And now this. Am I a conspiracy theorist or are these not legit complaints?

they're legit
the commish seems to be abusing his powers.
I commish several leagues. If I ever did something like that, I'd kick me out (not to mention that others would probably have me for dinner -- I play with cannibals).

yeah something fishy is going on there. For the playoffs be sure and take pics of everyones lineup (Print Screen button saves whats showing on your screen to a clipboard, paste it into word to see it) and post to your league that you are doing that to prevent the shadiness from happening to begin with.

After that, I would probably leave the league after this year

before your commish starts detailing the "single bullet theory" to you ....I would strongly consider hunting down a league that does not remind us of J.Edgar Hoover

Good Luck
