Here's what I would do: If this is all about the trade you're putting through I'd veto that one down, just to make everyone happy. After that I'd keep the setting to commish veto. I know it may seem bad for you but it might make the other owners happy. If anybody complains about the setting change just tell them the league majority wanted it.
If someone is screwing with their lineup it's no problem to set it for them, if they do decide to quit. You can easily run his team for him.
Even if that wasn't the case?
Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but I fail to see how lying to the other owners is going to in any way improve the situation.
Well he did get at least 4 owners on board and I bet most of the league would have no problem. It may be a slight "bending" of the truth but I fail to see how the rule change will end up hurting owners so it really doesn't matter. The league is in bad shape and changing the rules would improve it.
If he wants to change it to commish veto he should just put it to a league-wide vote, and then if he gets the majority to agree at that point it wouldn't be a problem. However, if he just "bends" the truth and says
he had a majority, and the other owners talk amongst themselves and figure out that he didn't
, then things are even more FUBAR than before and any credibility he had as a commish is shot to h**l.
It's not a commish's job to unilaterally change rules that were agreed upon by the league because "he knows what's best" for the league.
