Should the Commish do that??

Postby GreatestShowOnEarth » Fri Aug 26, 2005 11:36 am

Ok this is my first year with this league and we had our draft about a week ago. Now after the draft the commish has changed which teams are in what divisons. There is no way he should do this correct? i emailed him and told him what i thought. im awaiting a response from him and you guys!

Pretty much nothing should be changed after the draft has taken place. And the division's shouldn't be changed. On a side note, that must be a big league to have divisions.

Sounds like he's setting it up to give teams uneven matchups and I'm not sure I would bother to play with this guy.

I agree, divisions should be set before the draft and remain the same after the draft has taken place. My league does odds and evens for 2 divisions.

Yeah I drafted in my league to screw some of the other division mates, mainly taking C Taylor and E. Shelton , since the guys that own Lewis and foster are in my division. That is wrong he should change it back.

if he has some sort of explanation, i wouldn't cause a fuss about it. unless it's just blatant that he's setting himself into an easier division or what not... i just don't see it as that big of a deal.

You know, I had my answer to this as soon as I read the title... if you have to come here and ask, chances are, there is a problem.

In my league I would require unanimous agreement of a change of this magnitude this late... what, after the draft he wants to be in another division. I'd protest big time.

Well, the reason for it was the two people that were switched worked in the commishes office. The divisions were supposed to be changed before the draft. It had nothing to do with any kind of competitive edge or anything like that. The two guys just wanted to move into the division with the other two guys, so the commish obliged them. The commish emailed the entire league and told them it was happening, asked for input and agreed that if it caused problems or heartache to anyone, it would not happen. Only one person in the league had a problem with it. Out of 12 teams, 1 person had a problem with it. This league is basically made up of people who all know each other, there is only one guy who doesn't know the rest of the people. It is totally understandable that it could be questioned. The commish was just granting a request made by people in the league. The commish did not change divisions either. Two people were switched with two other people in another division.



(Yes I am the Commish in question and I take full responsibility for it.)
