It is NOT in the spirit of competition. What a load. The spirit of competition is to make your own team better by making your own damn team better. NFL teams practice harder, look for undrafted diamonds in the rough, try to pinpoint weaknesses in their opponents . . . but they don't go over on Sunday morning and put sugar in the fuel tank of their opponent's bus.
It's one thing to grab players for your team to even possibly use. It's quite another to have an open roster spot through which you cycle everyone so no one else can have them. Be a f&$king man. Decide the players who will benefit your team the most, and take them, and if you make the wrong decision, and someone else beats you with those players, guess what, you lost. Because you made a poorer fantasy decision. Better than winning by being a dick.
Further, do you know why most on-line leagues have waivers? It's so the sadsack who has no real responsibilities and can sit on his computer all day can't pick up each and every player as he's dropped. The waiver system ensures with some level of reasonable attention to your team, everybody has an equal chance at getting recently dropped players. Since that's the intention, to use the WW to insure no one can get any players, is clearly ass-backwards and NOT in the spirit of the game.
After reading your other thread, Members Only, & this thread by this OP, I could write for about 60 more paragraphs. But I'll try to leave it at this. Jesus. I would say I would never be in a league with you, but fortunately enough, I've only been in leagues with my friends so far, and I have to tell you, I'm not even sure I could be friends with you. Grow some balls and play straight up.
