What would have happend had he started his best players is a non issue, it's his intent. He was intending to tank so his wife could win. Hopefully you get justice. Keep us informed as to what happens. :-)

I think the only solution is for the commish to tell both players they are guilty of collusion and ask them to either quit the league or forfeit the games in question. Now the sackless dude lost anyway, but what if his wife had to forfeit her game and ends up with a goose egg for points?

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Total BS. No one would agree with that kind of collusion.

A couple of you asked for an update, so here it is:

The Commish sent out this email:

________
It has been brought to my attention that a team is throwing a game this week. I took a look at the team's roster and it is very obvious that this team is playing the bottom of their roster to guarantee a win for the other team. It is also obvious that it was not an accident, the "good" players that are benched this week played on the roster last week. We are also not talking about one or two players, it is the whole team.

If this was "just for fun" I would not take issue, but it is for "more" than just fun.

Would should we do? Please reply to all with your thoughts.

________
The next day, the wife sent this out to all:
________

Okay XXX,



XXXX was very offended by your email. They are no longer allowed to use the [PLACE WHERE HE WORKS] computers to do their fantasy football and our home computer crashed yesterday morning. He would not have thrown the game for me to win-he even lost his book fantasy league. He added it up and would have lost to me anyway. He said that anytime you want to discuss this in person he and [HIS DOG, WHO THE TEAM IS NAMED AFTER] are willing to meet with you.
_______
to Which the Commish replied with this:
_______

Sorry if my email offended him. I received a complaint from a team owner and pasted it on. I did not say who I was talking about in my email.
________

My Reply:
______
If he wasn’t able to get online, then how did he bench his best players who played last week for this week’s games? 5 of 9 starters were different.

________
Her Reply:
_____
Listen guys I don’t know, I did mine on Saturday I don’t get involved with his stuff. He would have lost anyway. Sorry if everyone has a prob he does his own thing I do mine!

______

and that is where it sits now

LOL, the wife's "explanation" is so classic. The commissioner did not name names, yet she comes out defending her husband? Lol what a joke.

If I were you I'd stay in the league because it seems like they are idiots, as long as the commish can keep things in order.

He's full of it and so is she. Fitz, Driver, and CJ should never have left his starting lineup. Unless it's a bye week, you start those guys every week.
