  1. Posted just now ยท Report post So a thread on another board got me thinking. A poster said that he was the commish of his dynasty league and just didn't think it was his duty to check each team's lineup on a weekly basis. I kind of agreed, but then I thought about it and realized, well, I guess that is something he should do. Life obviously happens, but when he can and is not too busy, then I think that's a fair expectation. But I understand that other people will disagree with that sentiment.
  2. So I was the commissioner of a work redraft league one year, and we had 8 teams make the playoffs. The first round was 1 v. 8, 2-7, 3-6, and 4-5. But it was a bracket style playoff, so it did not automatically reseed the highest ranked team vs. the lowest ranked team. So we wound up with 5 v. 8 and 2 v. 3. I wanted to manually reseed, so that #2 played #8 and #3 played #5, but after checking the settings, I realized that I could not have selected such an option at the beginning of the year. Furthermore, I had never discussed such an event with the rest of the league, so I just let the system dictate, instead of overriding it myself. Without disclosing it to the group ahead of time, I just felt it improper to intervene.Seeds 5 and 8 were happy, but seeds 2 and 3 were not. If I had manually reset, seeds 5 and 8 would have been upset, while 2 and 3 would have been happy. There wasn't really a perfect solution.What do you think I should have done? Should I have manually reset or not?
  3. Should The Commissioner Have Nixed This Deal?

    I feel you, but it's fair to wonder.
  4. Should The Commissioner Have Nixed This Deal?

    Any other insight would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Yeah, that's a good boiling point. Thanks for identifying it. My vote would be to let him trade, and hopefully there is a procedure in place to prevent lopsided trades. If not, then it's incredibly tough to create new rules on the fly.
  6. I gotcha, thanks. I wrote the explanation poorly too, so I cleaned it up and posted here. Although this place seems dead right now.
  7. Hyde-Chubb-Duke: Browns backfield

    Duke will probably still play the same role that he always has with the Browns. I hope that guy latches on with a new team.
  8. So let's say a league allowed owners to keep non-injured players on the IR in previous seasons. However, last season, the commish and vice commish agreed to not allow such a tactic. Although they decided on this, they did not disclose a rule change to the owners. Instead, a new rule for designating a player to return from IR actually implied that the owner had a choice to keep a non-injured player on IR or not. This is because the commish explicitly stated that "you can activate an injured player off of IR, if you want." A few weeks had already been played at the time, so players wound up on IR. Yet, the commish wanted to enforce IR rules in accordance with how he and the vice-commish intended. If the commish did this though, teams that have already placed players on IR would be forced to cut someone and take a cap penalty as well. Given The Facts, Should The Commish Have Allowed Players Returning From Injury On IR? Why or why not?
  9. Hyde-Chubb-Duke: Browns backfield

    Yeah, that's how it normally plays out. See DeMarco Murry and David Johnson.
  10. Hyde-Chubb-Duke: Browns backfield

    Hyde would be a good fit there.

    Yards Per Catch for old schoolers. It's YPR now?
  12. C.J. Anderson released

    CMC will lead CJ in total touches though.
  13. C.J. Anderson released

    That's smart business to me. More efficient, more effective, longer career. I like it.
