Commissioners Behaviors...readable version


Recommended Posts

I apologize for my initial post - first time here, still fuming.

I lost Sunday 142.9 - 141.2 .I am really POed!! Not because it was by 1.7 points and that the Cowboys could have easily gotten those points. Not because I had people on the bench that if I'd played them I would have won. I was screwed by the Commisioner. During the week I picked up Toby Gerhart and something Todman (backup for MJD), as possible sleepers because ABrown was playing Seattle and AJeffrey was at Cleveland in the snow with Cutler back and guarded by Haden. I dropped Gerhart late Friday and Todman on Saturday once the pictures cleared as to who was playing. I also kept them late so that my opponent couldn't pick them up....especially Todman who would play and was projected at 13+ points. When I dropped them the soonest they could be picked up on waivers was Mon 12/16. I read it at 2 different times on Saturday, including around 8:00 pm.


The Commisioner was contacted by my opponent Sun morning and persuaded to change that date so he could pick up Todman. When I texted Commish about the change he hemmed and hawed about it but finally admitted to making the change. We argued back and forth and he finally said that it was his decision and that it was the way it was. Todman got 19 points. None of the others that should have been available scored more than 11 except Asiata for Minn but he wouldn't have been picked up.

Of course, I shouldn't have let Todman go at all, but.....do you readers think I was wrong trying to block my opponent getting Todman or should I go egg the Commish's house?

Same answer as the "unreadable" version:


There are rules against what you did in many leagues as well, if it was interpreted that you picked up those players with no intention of using them, but with the intent of preventing anyone else from picking them up. I understand your explanation, and it makes sense, but at the same time your opponents could argue that you illegally picked up and dropped those players.


From ESPN Rules:


C: Impeding other owners

Certain transactions made solely to impede other owners is not allowed. In particular, cycling through players in free agency to put them on waivers and make them unavailable to other teams in your league is strictly prohibited and is grounds for expulsion from the game.
