The issue that you bring up, is simple: if Yahoo allows a player dual eligibility, he can play both positions. If the guy sucked, you'd have no problem with it. The guy doesn't suck, so now you have a problem.
There are 2 solutions: 1). contact Yahoo and get them to enforce WR eligibility exclusively (which I think you know that you won't be able to do) or 2). deal with it.
You don't have any other options. It's not your right to tell other managers how they can line up their players.
And no one believes that you would refrain from using him as a TE if you had the option.
Im not the one with the problem ... I wasnt fired up(threatneing to quit the league, etc) about the status of Colston in my league when I first asked the question, I just wanted to know how others using yahoo had handled it, if their commish had made a ruling outside of Yahoo, etc ... When I did get aggravated is when people had to make smart ass comments that didnt help at all.
And as to your comments, Ill have to give you credit, at least they are semi constructive...
but a) just because yahoo allows it does not prevent indivdual leagues from making rules to limit his eligibility ... and this was kind of the point of the question, to see if others had done this and exactly what they may have done.
b) there are many other solutions just 1 of which I mentioned previously, another would be a league vote.
c) I do have Colston in multiple leagues, and in the one league he had dual eligibility and I did/do use him as a WR ... whether you believe me or not matters very little ... some people don't have to win at all costs.
