Collusion? Or sour grapes?

Postby filmboy » Fri Dec 02, 2011 10:26 am

I'm in a league with my family. Some owners are more serious players than others, which I guess is fairly common in non-money, casual leagues. One owner (let's call them owner A) was able to auto-draft a solid team and has done well all year without having to play the waiver wire. In fact they haven't made a single roster move, until last week.

My team is tied for the division with another team whose owner (owner B) called this owner and suggested they make a roster move since they, owner A, was playing me. Well, needless to say I lost the game by a few points. I'm now a game behind and most likely out of the playoffs. Is this fair? All the other teams in the league have had an advantage when they have played owner A, except me. By the way, both owners A and B will be in the playoffs.

Your logic escapes me. Sour Grapes here.

This is why every league needs smack talk. This owner should have been berated for his/her non-involvement all year. So it's your own fault if you let this owner off the hook and then someone called them when they happened to be playing you. Sorry man.
