Iconoclastic wrote:I accidentally dropped Dmitri Young last year in a Yahoo public league. I was trying to drop Eric Hinske and Young was the name right above Hinske. The process of clicking two buttons had become kinda reflexive instead of deliberate cuz you've made so many roster changes so by the time I realized it was Dmitri and not Eric I already dropped him. And I did send out a message saying I dropped him by accident don't pick him up. And no somebody did pick him up. But I won the league anyways despite this monumental blunder.
I feel for the guy who dropped Harden. I guess he should find a better league where the owners have integrity and would be willing to let him get him back.
Well though I am ethical, no I do not feel bad for him. A) he needs to take responsibility for his mistake (in a private league, this would not even be an issue, but in a public league there is no way to account for how 9 other random people will act) and B) this is his trade that just got vetoed by ESPN today-- he sends Wickman, Hinske, Everett, he GETS Mulder and Aramis. He has also offered far worse trades than that. Now someone (like him) might be of the opinion that anything goes and if someone accepts a trade then it's their own stupid fault and you should be able to take advantage unless ESPN steps in, but then it's hypocritical to turn around and say "oh everybody please be nice and don't take advantage of my mistake" when all this guy does is try to take advantage of people. So no I do not feel sorry for him. I'm still debating it, and if he can get ESPN to step in great for him, if not oh well you live by the sword you die by the sword.
Here are some of the trades he has offered me just for fun:
Week 1- I give Abreu, and get Wickman and Alou.
Week 1- I give Rolen and get Berkman and McPherson
Week 1- I give Rolen and Adams and get Mota, Bradley, and McPherson
etc. etc. etc.
