Yahoo Waiver Question

Postby biffy44 » Sat Oct 15, 2011 5:47 pm

I am in a Yahoo $ League with Waiver Claims run Wednesday Morning like I assume most leagues with Waivers.

The leagues I have always been a part of in the past, you couldn't pick up (Free Agent) anyone until after the Waiver Claims were processed.

Usually the Claims are processed at 5am~ish. After that everyone not claimed are Free Agents.

This week the claims were processed at 5:05am Wednesday Morning
Commish Picked up someone at 4:30am and also made a 'Free Agent Pickup' at exactly 5:05am when waivers were run.

He now has #1 Waiver Priority this upcoming week.

Is this possible?
Thanks for any input.

The Commish can pickup a player before waivers with his powers. You need to call him on that. == If he made a FA Claim a minute after waivers ran, that would be legal. Anyone can get out of bed early and do the same thing.

Yep abuse of powers. Order him to remove the transaction and submit player through waivers system and email the league that a player is on waivers for anyone to get. All should have chance at him. If he clears waivers then the palyer can be added by LM the right way or through a ww claim.

The above was right on. x1 from me.
