commissioner changes playoff format last minute

Postby jonkaman » Thu Dec 01, 2011 10:10 pm

i'm in need of some feedback and opinion. im in a money league with 12 owners with 2 divisions. only me and one other owner have locked playoff spots. the rest of our league(including our commissioner) is pretty much in the playoff hunt(bunch of 6-6's and 7-5's). now our playoff format starting from predraft until week 13 was top 2 teams in each division make the playoffs so 4/12. i checked the playoff bracket earlier this week and it was set up where 8/12 teams make the playoffs. i talked to the commissioner about how that was too much and he should at most change it to 6/12. but he says to me this is what our whole league wanted. he basically said he's not gonna change it and i can have my money back and leave if i want to. i feel like i just got cheated and done dirty. i want to just leave but i have a solid team and all my effort throughout the season would go down the drain. should i stay? am i overreacting about the playoff format? need advice..

Have you posted your concerns?
Is that what the league wanted?
If it is then shouldn't you have known already?
How much money you talking here anyway?
This is often a problem with money leagues if you don't know the players and commish

yes i have posted my concerns, it is what they wanted but it was changed before i was asked. i'm guessing what he did was change it first and ask people afterwards. the commish is a friend of mine. the money isnt that much but its the principal of the matter.

If someone isn't in the playoffs and you ask them "What about increasing the number?", who will say NO. It is a dirty deal to change amount of playoff teams. I think I would take my money and leave.

Yeah, if it isn't much money, I think I would just play it out and then not play in that league next year. If it were a lot of money, I would take him up on his offer to take your money back and run now.

Sounds like BS. You can't change that rule in the middle of the season. Is the other team that clinched complaining too?
