Please explain something to me!

Postby packattack70 » Wed Jan 19, 2005 5:38 pm

I'm only now calming down from the lack of "Management" of my league. I was teh Commish for 8 years and gave up the reigns a few years ago so focus on my team, and it seems like the running of the league has been downhill ever since. Here's what happened that capped it all off:
I'm in the Title game and am possibly looking for a #RB due to players taking the week off (Week 17). I have Jesse Chatman, and Ladell betts was available. Suddenly as soon as the wire opened up on Tuesday morning, a guy who LOST in the semi final game picked up Betts! I stated this was wrong, but the new commish said there was no precedent so let him keep him! I'm I way out of line for yelling at the of my lungs about this? There have a been a lot of "odd" decision made like this, and this one just topped off my season...not to mention I had to play Chatman, which I was happy about until the moron decided not to suit up in a game he would have started!

Talk to me!

I'm sure the semifinal player was trying to hurt the championship players but there's no reason it shouldn't be allowed. Is it just a single-year league? You would have an argument of at least etiquette there but in a keeper or dynasty you wouldn't.

I think you have a beef here, but I don't think you can make that type of rule change during the playoffs if there is no precedent.

In my one keeper league that I have been in 10 full seasons now, we lock the rosters once the playoffs start. You get hurt if your players are injured or don't play, but then again you can't pick up people to mess up other teams. I was really hurt this year in it having McCardell, Priest, and Blaylock all out and not having people to replace them with, but somehow made it through it. We had roster requirements by position so that made it more difficult. Didn't just have a bench of 5-6 players.

If you are still upset about it, I would suggest you recommend a rule change and put it to league vote for next year. That way something like this may never happen again if the league members agree that a change should be made.

The only thing I see wrong with that is that it could leave open room for collusion. Is the guy picking up Betts a friend of any of the finalists?

But that said, I can't feel any sympathy for you because if you are going to play your championship game on week 17 you are asking back-ups to decide things for you. That is what should be changed, IMO.

Just given one simple paragraph about this league, it's all too clear you've got massive issues. You couldn't pay me to play in that .
