Owners who whine about this practice need to spend less time whining and more time working their waiver wire themselves.
The intent is to improve your roster. If picking up 2 or 3 backup QB's and then trading one, or having more insurance for injuries improves your team, then why does anyone have a problem with that?
This would be similar to a GM in the NFL whining to the league office that a player who cleared NFL waivers was acquired by a division opponent. The league office wouldn't care.
This is exactly right. The owner is taking up all the QB's but I bet he's hurting in depth somewhere else. In no way is this unethical. He is taking a risk.
I knew an owner who had 4 QB's last year (Peyton was one of them) and he didn't make the playoffs.
I always carry as many RB's as possible and people say stuff to me but they are vunerable and I feel that I need much depth in that position.
What the guy in your league is doing is the same as Shanahan and Billichek always saying that there players are probable, when they are really out or vice versa.
It's like Marino getting up to the line and pretending to spike the ball but throwing a TD instead.
It's like faking a field goal to go for the first down.
They are within the rules and they are things that are done to win.
