Should I quit my league?

Postby A Fleshner Fantasy » Thu Aug 09, 2007 10:49 am

This is not a cafe league, as a heads up. But anyway, the commisioner asked everyone days they could not do the draft, as he has done every year, to make sure everyone can make it. However, he noticed that I have been his biggest threat to winning the league the last couple years, so rather than making the draft when everyone can make it, which is possible, he intentiionally made it the specific day when I cannot be there. It is almost impossible to win a league without being at the draft, even with pre rankings. I've talked to him about it and he won't give a reason for making it that day rather than a day when everyone can do it, and whenever I ask him about it, he simply says "It's not changing."

What should I do? Is it worth quitting the league?

If the guy cannot give you a reason for the decision, then I say get out. That is ridiculous.

Turns out now that someone else in the league also can't do the draft on the day that it is, so we'll see what happens.

Draft day schedule...

Always a difficult thing to do, because it seems that it never works for everyone. I used to work Saturdays and have had to draft over the phone. Is it possible to have one of the guys call you when you're up, give you the picks taken and draft like that? I'm hosting a draft where we simply had to make a decision as to who could be there and who couldn't. Sorta sucks for that guy, but what do you do?

He is saying that there is a day when everyone can be there and the Commish won't do that day though, sounds pretty crappy to me

Furtunatly 3 other people from my league couldn't do that day either, so he had no option but to change it for fear of losing a third of the league, and there is no other day where I can't work around it. Thanks for the input guys ;-D

I'm glad it worked out well. It's always better to find a solution than quit a league you've been in for a few years.

Even though it ended up working out, I'd seriously think about quitting the league anyways. If there were days where everyone could attend the draft, there is absolutely no reason at all to schedule it on a day somebody cannot be there for whatever reason. The fact that he would not give you a specific reason as to why he put it on a certain day when there was better days available makes it all the more fishy. It might not be the reason you are suspecting, but there has to be some kind of reason. :-t
