Is this ethical?

Woah, he dropped players off his team? Who were they? Im afraid you are going to say Corey Dillon, Chad Pennington and Santana Moss, and that smells like total BS to me. Did anyone pick up those players dropped? He certainly shouldn't have dropped studs off those teams. If he picks up one of these guys then you know this league is full of &*% and demand your money back.

As long as the commish didn't make the changes himself, its all good.
No one in a league has the obligation to remind an owner he hasn't set his line-up, but at the same time anyone can certainly do it if they feel like. I know it feels shady to you because it was the commish, but even as commish he still retains the same rights as anyone else in the league. It would be pretty tough to tell someone they can't at the very least warn someone about there line-up.

As long as the commish would do it for everyone else, I see no problem... I am a commish of a leauge and if someone has an invalid lineup, I get on him.

Personally, I see no problem with a commish reminding people to set a line-up... If your team was any good, and this guy was playing people like Feeley, Curry, and Alstott, you should have been able to come away with a win, regardless....

if he made him DROP as in cut ppl from his team, than i dont think it's right, but otherwise a friendly reminder is no big deal IMO!

I agree. I was playing a guy that still had Corey Dillon and Vinatieri in his lineup on Saturday and I was playing him (I was also the commish).

We reminded him again and then I just subbed him people for those two byes. I don't need people complaining that I cheesed to a win. Doesn't matter. I won 98-28 anyway.

Your team should have been good enough to beat that group of last second bums.

It's harsh but that's thr truth. Since you couldn't do it, you are bummed you couldn't take the week off.

Sorry if you don't agree with my opinion. No one wants to see people not turn in a lineup, no matter what positions need filled. It keeps the leagues competitive.

I don't have a problem with it at all.

Owner spotted a regular who didn't adjust his team and called him.

Now if the owner logged in and did it himself, then yeah. What if it was just another player who called? I mean I think its cool the commish is on top of things, calling his guys. You want to commish to stay out of it so you get an easy win. What a pussy. Go find your manhood and then apologize to your family for disgracing them for posting such a retarded topic.

That's all.

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.
