what do i do when commish takes advantage?

Postby wetbeaverlover » Mon Sep 04, 2006 8:46 pm

are commish made a trade in which he gets javon walker, cedric benson, and ladanian tomlinson in exchange he gives eddie kennison, frank gore, and lamont jordan. i play him first week and the trade was rejected by votes the first time but then when people weren't paying attention he got it to pass and hasn't said if he'll reverse it or not. just wondering what i should tell the commish and what i should do, any suggestions?

If he doesn't reverse it, you should leave that league immediately.

Additionally, if you know where he lives, you should go over there and smack him upside the head. ;-D

If its the same exact trade that was vetoed before, leave the league! If it was slightly different then your league-mates should have vetoed it. If they didnt, then I think he has the right to take advantage of whatever idiot made the trade with him. If thats the case, then he is still a douche, but I dont think he really did anything wrong (unless you count morals).

first... he didn't use his commish powers to take advantage of you..

2nd.. you should of a made an offer to the guy for LT if you knew he was willing to part w/ him..

its up to the league to protect itself..

Make him reverse it under threat of physical violence.

Er, something.

first... he DID use his commish powers to take advantage by passing through a trade which had already been vetoed.

second... this sounds like collusion so you should've apparently sent the guy who had LT $20 yourself.

third... the league DID try to protect itself and the commissioner circumvented it.

solutions?

1) email the league and declare shanigans. demand the commissioner give up the role to someone else.

2) collude with all the other team to make one super-team to beat up on the commish cheater.

3) quit the league, never to return.
