Hi guys, another FF year upon us. Hooray!
I could use some opinions.
In one of my leagues [12 team partial keeper, partial PPR, weird scoring, weird owners] the online draft was somehow left running after it was completed. After week 1, several of us attempted to add/drop players. The CBS software would not let us do so because of the still open draft. I had 3 players targeted, Vick [Kolb injury with Roethlisberger as my back up], Brandon Jackson [could use RB help in that league, watched the Packer game and was following the Grant situation] and Mark Clayton [16 targets!]. After I realized the software would not work, I emailed our commissioner and told him about the problem with the open draft and told him who I wanted to pick up. At the time, I had no idea if everyone had the same add/drop problem or if it was just my system. I also sent an email to the league telling them the system was down and my picks.
The commissioner fixed the problem and I drafted my players.
Tuesday evening there was a post from the owner who had Ryan Grant. He is saying he picked Jackson at exactly the 8 A.M. add/drop start time and wants me to give up Jackson to him or at least put him back in the free agent pool and give everyone who wanted him a chance to pick him at an agreed on time. I told him if he noticed the problem before I did [open to interpretation] he should have notified the commissioner immediately and given him his pick[s]. I said if the software doesn't work, you have to go to back up measures such as emailing the commissioner. League chaos has resulted. Opinions?
