Help me rule on this matter

Postby jerzey jetz » Tue Nov 22, 2005 7:59 pm

I'm the commish. Team A started P.Holmes (who's on IR) instead of LJ this week. It cost him the game. Team B is now alone in first place with the victory. Team A has a good shot to make it into the playoffs. That's what makes it hard for me. We're in the middle of debating this right now. Some say it was his error so he should suffer and not the team that won the game. I have not heard from either team owner at this point. To me, this is a no brainer cause no one would ever do that in there right mind. I don't know whether it was intentional or not. I'm thinking of starting LJ for him and changing the standings. What would you guys do? I know that I won't be able to please everybody, as it's already 50/50, but I need to step in and make a final decision. Just wanted to be as fair as possible to everyone. Sorry for the lenghty thread, but I would really like your feedback on this. Thanks

It's up to the owner of the team to set his/her rosters not the commish.

Yeah, you have to let that stand. The owner of the team needed to switch that. You really don't have any reason to nor should you change it.

This should be a non-issue. You can't be responsible for his mess up. The league shouldn't be complaining about this either. Them's the breaks, kids. Brain fart or not, he is responsible for his lineup. Not you or anyone else in the league.

Thanks guys. I just sent out an email stating that I felt there was no intent of cheating therefore leaving it as is. I wanted to hear from someone outside my league. Thanks again :)

first, last week's games are over. don't go monkey around changing around anything for that.

second, email the owner and see if he is still active. if he is, he sets his roster. let it be. if he's lost interest / not doing anything any more, change out priest for larry johnson for next week.

Why is Priest still in his lineup anyway? Shouldn't he have already been out before this week or has he been in the whole time?

The only reason the commish should step in in this situation is if he believes the Priest owner is intentionally throwing the game.
