This guy that's complaining sounds like a putz and is perhaps worried because he is a crappy fantasy player with low self esteem.See if they can wait til perhaps after your engagement,or another day.If not,ask what everyone else thinks.If they agree,kick this whiners ass in the alley out back and tell him to shut the hell up and play...it's for FREE!
that guy is a pussy. who cares what one guy says. now if the league doesnt like it you have a problem. I have seem some pretty nice teams drafted by yahoo. if not, just lie to your league and say you are skipping your rehearsal, and get someone to pretend to be you. sure it is unethical, but its not like its a money league or anything.
Tell that dude at work to chill. I had this situation last year. I guy call up an hour before the draft and said that he could not make it. We had a friend fill in a draft his team. Its his problem if something got messed up but, the only other thing to do was cancel the draft!! HA!!!!
That was not happening, so we proceeded. Tell this guy at your job if you cant get someone to fill in for you that you want to postpose or cancel the draft, then see what he says.
"You can fool some people sometimes, but you can't fool all the people all the time."
Whoever accused you of cheating is off of their rocker. I'm in a very similar situation in my money league and what I've worked out with them is to call in via cellphone, have someone update me on the draft board and then make my pick. The league owners seem cool with it but one of our guys is also in Honduras and has been absentee for the last 2 seasons so my problem is less than his in their eyes. Bottom line is that guy is a punk for calling you a cheat.
I like simple pleasures, like butter in my ass, lollipops in my mouth. That's just me.
I for the life of me cant understand why this guy would think that is unethical except for one possibility....
Maybe he thinks (or maybe this IS the case though i didnt get this impression from your post) that the person doing your draft for you is also in the league? In that case i could see a potential problem but someone that isnt in the league at all? Frankly, it is none of his damn business who drafts your team for you in my opinion.

I take it your not married or in a long term relationship. to put it simply...........my life would become more of a hell than it is.
Thisd is a rehersal dinner. I have been to several and they are for the participants in the wedding not for people just attending the wedding. If you are not doing anything but attending there is no reason for you to attend the rehesal dinner. do your draft and let your wife be mad.
Example my wife was a brides maid for a friends wedding about a year ago. I went to a bar with some friends that nite because my wife said what I typed above when I asked if she wanted me to go!!!!!!
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.
The guy who is whining is an idiot. Go to the rehersal dinner,
enjoy the food and booze. Your wife will be happy, and you
can tell her not to screw up anymore NFL activities. Have a great
season, you have done your "domestic" thing for the year.
Its not unethical at all, even if you get someone to draft for you with their own cheatsheet. Its your team, why should anyone else care. If you want to hire Brandon Funston to draft your fantasy team(not the best choice, just an example) do it. If its your team, its your choice how to draft.
