Help! Conflict Resolution Needed!

Postby gravyfries » Mon Oct 08, 2007 8:27 pm

Someone in my league made the boneheaded mistake of accidentally dropping a player instead of putting him in the starting lineup. It was his starting quarterback, Hasselbeck. Someone else immediately picked him up. As Commish, what should I do?

Give him back
Let it stand
Let the league vote on it?

I'd say give 'im back! But, if your not the forgiving type try a league vote. ;-D

What site is this on? I find it very hard to believe all of these accidental drops. Most sites have 1 or 2 screens you have to go through before a player is dropped

It was on ESPN. What happened is that he selected something from a drop-down list and then scrolled down the page and hit submit. When he scrolled down I think he was still controlling the drop-down list, if that makes sense.

Still a bonehead move...

If it was a legit mistake, he should have immediately communicated the error to you. If so, I would have no problem giving Hass back to the guy that dropped him, but I would make it effective in week 6. Issues like this have to be dealt with before kickoff on Sunday. If nothing was said before kickoff, I would probably have to say live and learn.

If this is a HTH league, what were the outcomes of the games involving these two owners? Would having Hass, or not having him, make a difference to their games?

In any event, I don't think you can go back and change the rosters and alter the outcome of the week 5 results.

I play on espn. And here is the thing, and why I say no to giving him back. When you bench a player and hit submit, it happens right after you press the button. If you drop a player it asks you to confirm AFTER to hit submit. So he would have had to click the scroll menu and select drop, press the Submit Roster button, then on the next screen press the Confirm Button. It is a 3 step process as oppsosed to a 2 step. Pretty obvious.

In all fairness, it happened twice in our league last year (ESPN) because if you don't click out of the "highlighted" box the menu will scroll to DROP when you scroll the page. Newer players have been warned about this in our league(hasn't happened yet this year) but if you were sure you had clicked BENCH instead of DROP that one extra screen might not alert you, especially if it's 3 minutes to kick-off!

The dropped player (hasselbeck) should have went on waivers, stopping teams from picking him up "right away"...if the team owners contacted the commish right away, then I would let him have him back.

Still vote no to giving him the player back. Tell him (and the league) to learn to read and pay attention to what you are doing. On ESPN Dropping a player is still a 2 step process.
