Commissioner should fix lineup?

Postby LJ's Crush » Fri Nov 23, 2012 6:41 am

So in my league last week the worst team with a 2-9 record was playing the top team in another division that team happened to be the commissioner aswell which is fine except for the fact that the 2-9 team was missing 3 starters and would have won which hurt the 4 other teams chances of making the playoffs and more money as we pay out for how you finish in your division first gets $75 rest get $25. This week a owner decided to call out that 2-9 team for tanking the season so he can be guranteed the 1st pick in the league Dynasty btw the the team owner responded and said he simply forgot to set his lineup but also this week put in a lineup that has no chance of winning as a way to get back the team who called him out. and said he has decided to quit b4 the season was over which is quite childish.

So 1 should the commissioner take a lose for the previous week or let that stand s3till

2 allow his current lineup which has no chance of winning stay the same and igve two free wins?


3 allow the owner back in the league if he decides to come back.He also still owes his entry fee if im not mistaken.

All kinda depends on your league's rules - most leagues I play in have a rules against tanking the season to prevent guys doing this. Also, if the owner only does this for one week, hard to say if it was just an accident or whether it was on purpose, need to see how it plays out the rest of the season.

Its definitely a fine line. I'm our league commish and we're having the same problem with our basement team.

- For this season there is nothing you (or the commish can do). Its unfair to set a "rule" on rosters being filled out/anti-tanking this late in the season when it wasn't done earlier. Needs to be set prior to the start of the season so everyone knows up front.

- I'd be curious to hear how other commishes deal with tanking, because that can also be subjective at times. You can make the argument in some cases that as long as that owner is checking their roster and making their own decisions, its up to them. We don't force the guy who drafts Josh Cooper in the 2nd round just because he's a Browns fan to take it back. But in a case where Aaron Rodgers is getting benched in favor of Brady Quinn, thats obvious.

We're still trying to decide the best way to determine when a commish should step in and take over a roster. Just a few ideas:
- Owner fails to fill bye week spots 2 weeks in a row and does not respond back to email/text/whatever
- Owner fails to replace/plays players on IR

One thing we do in our league is award the #1 pick in the draft to the person who wins the consolation bracket. It gives more incentive for someone NOT to tank the season, or at minimum the playoffs.

The scores from previous weeks need to stand, and you can't just give free wins despite his crappy lineup. Thats why they play the games, you never know what can happen. Either way, I'd kick him out for good after this season.

Good luck!
