if it's a redraft and no rule against it, it sucks for this year, but for next year you should suggest closing waivers to all non-playoff teams after the regualr season finale
I agree. If it's a keeper league there is no issue; but if it's a redraft league, and this guy's season had officially concluded, then it's a shady move and you need to introduce some kind of rule next year to prevent it.
The league I'm in used to have a rule like that, i.e. that only playoff teams could make moves once the playoff weeks actually started. But it's a keeper league, so this caused problems too. Eventually we instituted a 'B-pool' system that awarded top choices of draft picks the following year to non-playoff teams that did well in a playoff-style consolation set-up. This has kept teams somewhat interested after they're eliminated, and also reduced the problem you spoke about, so it's been a good result.
