hmm, ethical question. I'm playing my brother in law this week. He's visiting family, so he's not going to be checking his team today. He's starting the Balt. Defense. Do I call him and say, "pick up a new DEF, Balti isn't playing this week" or let it ride...?

I think I'd rather call him and inform him of the news and lose, than win on a cheap shot like this.

We'll let's weigh the situation.

You post here, he doesn't. (I assume...)
He won't be checking his team today or tomorrow (before the games), and you will be checking yours.

I say give him a heads up, you already seem to have an advantage just based on those reasons.

This is a good point. I called him and he picked up the Panthers. So we'll see.

He doesn't use any type of fantasy forum, so I do feel like I have the advantage. However, last year he drafted LT, Brady, Moss, B. Marshall and Burress and than immediately declared himself the winner of the league. About a month later, we all realized he was right.

It's good sportsmanship to call him, and I would probably do the same, but the game's postponement is national news. Visiting family or no, he could easily have heard about it on his own. I think you did the right thing, but you didn't necessarily have to go out of your way.

To be honest, your commish should be on it. I emailed everyone in every league I run and I have received emails from commissioners of a couple of the other leagues I'm in. A good commish would already be contacting his leagues.

Like I said before, you should call him... good sportsmanship, you know he's not near a computer, he's family... many reasons to call him... If you don't tell him and you end up beating him, won't it be kind of a shallow victory? Call him...


edit: I see you did... good work man...

IMO every owner should be responsible for their own team. It depends on the level of competition between the owners in a given league. In my league for example, I wouldn't think to fill in an owner on the status of one of "their" players.

Week 10. How on earth could you determine the outcome of this weekends games when this game doesn't occur until Nov.

I think this was asked before it was officially moved to week 10 and the schedules were all changed and this was made their bye...
