alexander yahoo questions

Postby jrals1 » Thu Sep 28, 2006 8:11 pm

i am in two yahoo leagues, and in both leagues he is no longer on the cant cut list. first of all, why? he is not out for the season, that we know of.

second, in one of my leagues someone dropped him. dont know why, but my question is how to handle this. i am not the commish, but i do have top waiver priority.

my problem is, i dont want to screw up the parity in the league, because someone is stupid, but i cannot let him get by the waivers and let someone else have him.

any thought and opinions would be appreciated!!

thanks

If he's on the WW and you don't use your top priority to get him you'll be even dumber than he is. Go pick him up NOW.

Somebody did this in one of my leagues as well...

Since I have the fourth waiver priority, I quickly dropped and picked up several players to bump Alexander off of the recent transactions page...

Let's hope it works. There's a max limit on the moves too, so I hope it does.

i have put my waiver request in for him, i am not going to let him get by me.

my question i guess, is more of ethics, one he should not even be out there, since he should be on the cant cut list, why isn't he?

so i guess in my thinking, so not to disrupt the balance of the league, should he maybe be just locked out from anyone to have?

this is only 20 bucks per person, 10 team league, more of my fun league, not super competitive.

i guess even though this would be benifitting me, its because of a yahoo glitch that is allowing this stupidity to happen and could ruin the league.

Why should a player whos owner didnt want him be unavabile to everyone else, not only is that unfair to all of the other owners, but it almost makes the guys move a smart move.

If he ain't on the list he ain't on the list. If 'ol boy wants to panic and cut off his nose to spite his face then that's his right. You don't owe anyone any apologies for benefitting from it.
