Anybody else amazed at all the cheating going on?

I'm not surprised. The more popular FF gets and the more money that's pumped into it, the more cheating that will go on I think.

There's also a huge amount of the younger generation that are starting to get into it. Now I'm not trying to pin the young guys out there as cheaters themselves, but I'm not suprised about it. I'm just finishing up college here and the thing is, every is trying to get ahead. If that means they have to cheat they will try to get away with it. I haven't dealt with the cheating in any leagues that I've ever been with for fantasy football. No matter what this will keep coming up, Just try and find a group that you'll trust and play with them for years to come ;)

Stuff like this happens every league- I hope though that these aren't cafe leagues, because that would suck if they are.

This is my first year as a commish, and I haven't seen any outright cheating, but i've learned a lot about what to prepare for next year, such as putting caps on things like add/drops, and trades.
I've got a guy in my league that has about 80 add/drops, and has harassed people with trade offers non-stop all year, and had a few questionable ones go through, which leads me to my new outlook on "league votes". I don't think I'm for that anymore either.

I play in money leagues with people that know each other and have never seen any cheating going on. Occasionally, we will have someone make an unethical move. We let the offender know immediately and usually doesn't happen again. In the 3 leagues I play in (2 football and 1 baseball), it is usually the same 2 guys that try to bend the rules or take advantage. But, we keep them pretty straight just by peer pressure. One case I posted on this forum.

There are a lot of cheating threads. It saddens me.
