sounds a little fishy to me, what if we didnt notice the change. :-/

anyone got any suggestions as to what we should do. There are two commishs, the one who is listed as the commish on yahoo isnt the one who made the shady moves. He just knows his account info.

Yep, this guy got caugt and is trying to turn it around and claim he was just doing it for the fun of getting rises out of people. In a money league as big as yours there is no room for that. $1700 is alot of money to be trying "to get a rise" out of someone. I think he was trying to cheat, BUT if the guy is a goofball and does this alot and admits to it then I would take it as he said it.

yeah I don't know, we have had a great deal of issues with our commish this year. if there is one thing I have learned, its that we aren't going to go with anyone we don't 'know' again next year.

IN fact my buddy and I (who also split a buy in) are thinking about starting our own league, with a truly democratic model....we have talked about using polls here at teh cafe to settle league disputes. Trying to get unbiased feedback to a league decision.

one year i did something like that to get a rise.. I made the last place team champion for a day, but that is kind of obvious. Making a small change to your own roster during gameday is obvious attempt to cheat.

Why would the commish do this just to make a joke? That's exactly what happened, he got caught trying to cheat and is trying to turn it back around. Completly idiotic on his part, especially with so much cash at stake.

Here is why i don't play for money.

Sounds like a solid strategy to me.

I entered the league because I want to win some money. Ive been pretty successful in fantasy football and I thought it would be a good investment.

So far Im 4-1 and am in second by just a few points.

We are voting to have to other commish, the shady one, removed from the position and replaced with another manager.

he says its a joke and i dont believe him. The worst part is he has had 2 close wins this year by 5 and by 1.5 and there is no way to prove that he didnt tweak his roster on those dates too.

And in case your wondering, if a commish changes rosters it is not shown on the transactions log. Im pretty sure it used to a few years ago. It would say. Willie Parker - Bench changed to Willie Parker - RB. But maybe Im wrong.

He's just kidding? Yeah right, kick this dude out of the league. I would talk to as many owners as possible and convince them that it is in their best interest to keep the league honest if they want a league at all. Especially since this guy was/is in a position of power as commish. With a $200 buy-in, there is ZERO tolerance for any F-ing around IMO.

Get the previous results of his matchups made null and void and treat his future matchups as a bye or a week where you compete against the league average. 10 to 1 this guy has done this in the past, and the only question is how long it has been going on for and to what extent. If it was me, and it was a friend/friend of a friend type situation, I would want to meet with this guy in person and tell him what a piece of !@#!@ he was. Hopefully I could instigate a fight and get some revenge.

On a sidenote: Might wanna ask around and find out if this guy is having sex with your leaguemates' wifes and girlfriends. Sounds like the type of behavior he would engage in. "Hey man I was just joking, I tripped and in fell in!"
