Should I complain about this...

Postby TomG » Sun Nov 08, 2009 2:03 pm

I'm in 3rd place in my H2H league. I'm actually tied based on record, but the woman who owns the team I'm tied with has me beat on tota points by roughy 100 points. This week, she pays against her husband's team (his team in in 7th).

Looking over the matchup I noticed he is starting Robert Meachem and Austin Collie at WR while benching Larry Fitzgerad and Donald Driver, Mike Bell, Tim Hightower, and Jamaal Charles while benching Chris Johnson, a Questionable Ben Watson over Witten at TE, and Denver's DST over New Orleans.

Should I raise the B.S. flag on this one? I'm leaning heavily towards yes.

On a side note: 2 years ago we had to override a trade between these two of Tony Romo straight up for Peyton Manning.

You should complain about this. This is colluson. I can't see any way they could justify benching Fitzgerald for those guys, let alone many of the other choices. Given the past history, the league should either demand that one of the players leave next year, or you should find another league.

I would've complained already...complete garbage and there's no reason for this in the league. I'd not return next year if this type of play is allowed.

I'm hoping you complained about it. That is absurd.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

I emailed the commish about it, and the guy in first. Will be emailing the rest of the league shortly. I'm thinking about dumping this one next year, or at the very least requesting a rule against spouses having teams in the same league.

There is no way they can justify this evisceration of ethics. If needed, give the league a link to this thread/discussion, if the commish is being a douche. I've seen crap like this in free public leagues, but in a yearly league this is unacceptable :-t

In all honesty, one of the two should be forced to leave the league after pulling nonsense like that. Probably the wife, as she was likely threatening some form of withholding a certain gratification if the husband did not comply.

I think I was more in disbelief over it. The Commish is now worked up over it as well. He is going to alert the rest of the league and figure out what to do from there. The kicker of it is, it appears that his best lineup would have still lost anyway. Thanks for sharing my rage everyone.
