Unacceptable behavior from this guy

Postby Big85Blue85 » Sun Mar 27, 2005 10:00 pm

I was in a draft filling in for someone else who had an emergency to tend to and one guy in there just surrendered his final 6 picks because he was going away and was too lazy and disinterested to make a list or ask someone to draft for them.

I swear, every year I play this game, the number of troll owners rise and rise.

Did he leave the league? :-? Just leave 6 empty roster spots on his roster and make him pick up FA's later ....

6 isn't bad. I've had guys who left after 2 picks. They got Bonds and Tejada and the rest of his team was a FA party.

Yeah, that kinda sucks, inactive/unattentive/apathetic owners are always a pain, but trust me there are a lot worse instances of poor ownership out there. Just let him fill out him team, if he picks up the right guys it may not even be noticeable in time.

That's why you have league dues and play for money. When money is involved, people seem to pay attention to their teams... imagine that!!!

Its nothing to be concerned about. We had 2 guys do that this year, nobody else minded because we just skipped their turn in the draft. It made our teams better while they have to scramble over whoever is left.

I'd be upset if he expected the draft to stop when he left. From experience, what matters most is what happens on your roster/team. If this behavior doesn't change after 3 or 4 months, then I'd be concerned.
