Any advice for newbie Commish?
Private Yahoo League of friends/friends of friends/co-workers
Small money but still money.
The commish from the last several years is just tired of it so I'm taking over because nobody else would.
1. Let people make stupid trades. Anything other than obvious collusion should be an acceptable trade. Everybody knows everybody, most are all pretty equal in football knowledge (though some think more highly of themselves than their records would indicate) and I have faith that there's enough character amongst my team captains that they won't knowingly cheat.
I've been playing since the days of keeping track of everything on paper and figuring out scores from the box scores in the newspaper (In other words, no fancy Yahoo keeping track for me). I learned a lot from my first years of stupid trades and I don't think I would have if my trades had been rejected by the league. It has to sting to stick.
2. Get the money up front.
3. Have a great year.
As a player all I wanted from my commissioner was cash at the end of the championship game. (Come to think of it, as commssioner, that's what I want too!
) Am I naive in thinking that's all my league will want from me?
