Strange Waivers - What should I do

Postby miroeltg » Thu Sep 13, 2007 12:06 pm

In a 10 team keeper league, a team recently released the following 3 players: Fitzgerald, Heap and Norwood. These players were picked up by other teams immediately. My problem is that these were 4th, 6th and 7th round draft picks respectively and have been released after only 1 week of play.

I am concerned about the integrity of the league and am considering undoing these changes, what do you think?

Update: it turns out one owner was on vacation for 2 weeks and had a friend manage the team, who did this. He has not asked for his players back, as he feels he deserves what has happened. I'm more concerned with the impact to the other teams and the league in general. Thoughts?

Reverse all those drops. The league integrity suffers irreparably otherwise.

In our league, the drops would be reversed AND the owner would be 'punished' for this error by not being allowed to start any of those players this week. Every owner needs to understand that fantasy football is a commitment to all the other guys in the league...it is not something to be taken lightly. Give him his players to protect the integrity of the league, but certainly do something in the form of punishment rather than just making it like it never happened.

If someone did that in my league I would put their players back on their roster and lock them so they couldn't do any player adds, drops or trades.
