Dirty Commissioner?

Postby swanshaft » Sat Oct 22, 2011 6:28 am

I am in a Yahoo League.

Is it possible for a commissioner to delete a previous transaction he has made (i.e. a waiver wire pick up) and move him self up a couple spots in the waiver wire??

The reason I ask is I was anxious about a waiver wire pick up last night, someone had dropped maurice morris this week after learning about the ronnie brown trade. we all know what happened there. I jumped at the chance to pick morris up especially because I had Best. I checked the waiver order last night and I am 95% positive that the commish was below me. The reason I looked at that specifically is he always try to leverage backups into trades because your team has an injury. I remember feeling pretty comfortable that I was going to get morris, and boom, 5 am this morning, the commish gets him. This was after a flurry of trade proposals and retractions from him at 2am to me.

Is the above possible to do the above undetected??? I dont know how to fight it...

Every legit site automatically logs every Commish action. It should be listed with all the other league transactions.

If it isn't there or if you have some type of software that doesn't track it, not much you can do. Start keeping screen prints, I suppose...

You could always just ask...maybe he has a valid reason (doubt it).

I have never used Yahoo, but on ESPN you can tell when the Commish has made a move, it is listed with all of the others. I am sure Yahoo would be the same. I am 100% there would be no way for the Commish to move himself up in the waiver order. Be sure before you accuse him of something.

I do not believe u can hide commish moves. He does not have the ability to hide transactions.

The only time its ok for a commish to help with a lineup is if the owner is out of town and posted a lineup on the public BB asking a LM to set his lineup his absence or the team is ownerless and the LM is simply trying to keep the team competitive til a replacement can be found.
