question to commish ppl out there

Postby cha » Wed Oct 06, 2004 4:13 pm

I am a commish of a dynasty league and b/c of ricky williams retirement.....an owner had to drop him. If he comes back how would you handle it? Give him back (leaning towards), first come/first serve based on waiver priority, or have a drawing of some sort.

Please help....i have a feeling this is gonna cause some problems!

First priority. Ricky never should have been droped, especially in a dynasty league. If he was available he should have been picked up the first week.

It is highly unlikely he will play this year, so what you could do is say that no one can pick him up and he goes in next year's draft.

I agree with Vlad the Impaler.

However, if he does come back this year, I say return him to the guy that dropped him. Afterall, that manager had already gotten screwed because of Ricky. The only fair thing is to at least let him salvage what's left of his season.

I think it's first come, first serve. When he retired, there was a lot of talk about whether he would ever play football again and on a dynasty league you should have enough spots to have held on to him this long.

The manager that dropped Williams only screwed himself. If he was put on waivers awhile ago, than I assume he should be a FA by now. If he is a FA, than by definition, anyone can pick him up. I don't see how the stupidity of someone who would drop Ricky in a dynasty league is reason to break a set of easily understood, very established rules.

Edit: I picked him up in my keeper league this week. I don't feel bad for the guy that dropped him at all. Maybe if he falls out of the playoff race, I'll trade Ricky back over for something that can help me win this year.

Different leagues handle this in different ways; in my own, if you want to retain a player's rights, you can't drop him outright.

On the other hand, if he still counts against his (former) team's salary cap, that might change things, of course.

I would allow him to resign Ricky. This is too bizarre a situation to compare to any other.

Ahhh, then should the whole league go out skipping and picking daisy's toghether under a rainbow? Its a game youre playing, no handouts. Its the owners own dumb decision that got him into this mess. No :~( -babies. Well let em cry, its funnier I guess.
