yeah, anonymous was me.

the only problem here is that nobody else really cares enough to do anything. the commish obviously doesn't care because he hasn't responded to any posts that I've made.

the only person who responds to the posts is the guy i think cheated and he defends it as a fair move and resorts to name calling and such.

further, this guy already collected 50 bucks for the regular season best record and now is going for the 250 bucks in the super bowl - if he can beat me this week. It pisses me off.

BTW here's my lineup and here's his tell me if you think that the Johnson thing will affect the outcome at all


ME QB - Favre
RB- Holmes
RB- Edgerrin James or William Green
WR - Terrell Owens
WR - Donte Stallworth or Darrell Jackson
TE - Jolley
K - Vinatieri
D - NYJets vs. the Bears


Him QB - Johnson
RB - McAllister
RB - Bennett
WR - Toomer
WR - Moss
TE - Gonzo
K - Akers
D - New England

I think his pick-up of Johnson will cancel the points that holmes gets you.

The rest of your line-up looks pretty close with the exception of his D, I think that will be the difference.

Good luck

Without Johnson you're probably the favorite, with Johnson it's close.

That's beside the point, though. The point is that this sort of thing shouldn't happen in any league, whether you're playing for money or not. hard to see how the move can be defended as being fair...

Whether the commish cares or not, you'd think that at least the other playoff teams would have something to say about this...

Pretty clear-cut that this is suspicious at least, if not outright cheating. Personally, if it is true that the commish and everyone else don't care, I would find another league. If this is allowed to happen, why won't it happen next year, and the year after?

In my league, the commish's brother dropped a player for so the commish could pick him up. I jumped his case and he rescinded the transaction. It was my way of saying that if they value my participation in the league, it has to be run completely above board. I was not even in the same division or competing against the commish. It just sets a very bad precedent if allowed.

Also, I heard that other players were quietly as upset as I was, they just didn't want to rock the boat.
