I wouldn't call it unethical, but I would call it BS.
Why does a five year owner/participant need so much hand-holding? If he blows a starting lineup, then he blows a starting lineup. A cheese win? What the hell is that? Isn't managing your weekly roster your responsibility? How 'bout calling it a "dork win" instead, as in the guy who started bye week players is a dork and showing disrespect for your league. Why not just let the commish set everyone's starting lineup each week?
I'm in a money league with a commish that lays it out for everyone at the draft, if you start a player on a bye, then say "bye" to those points. I understand it's fantasy football, but can we exhibit a little likeness in how we manage our players?
Quick, someone call the Bears and tell them they have to fill Rex Grossman's spot.
