What to do with someone who is ruining a money league?

Postby davus » Sun May 29, 2005 3:38 pm

I got this guy from the Cafe to join my keeper league and he has been trouble from day 1. Now he has caused a crapstorm over a trade of Tyler Walker for Garret Anderson and is cursing me out on the message board and in emails, calling the league a scam because he can't get the trade vetoed, demanding his money back and just being a generally offensive jerk to me and the rest of the league.

I am so tempted to just lock him out for the remainder of the year. His team isn't competative so I don't feel like I'd be taking him out of the running. He is just a total sore loser and a baby who won't shut up.

I really don't like the idea of locking someone out, especially when the paid to get in the league, but the guy is out of control.

Any suggestions?

LOL.

Believe me after the crap he's pulled I'm tempted to post it, but I'll refrain at this point. Do you have any suggestions? Just ignore him and hope he goes away?

You can't lock his team if he's paid you money to play in your league. I don't really think you can do much to be honest. Most leagues have "that guy" and all you can really do is ignore him.

keep the veto's up. Compare ranks.Let him know why it is a bad trade. He pays money to be in ur FBL you can NOT lock him out. Commish is a tough job. Every 1 cant always be happy.

I agree, you can't lock him out if he's already paid money. It will only cause him to blow up further anyway.
Just delete his emails, and tell him he knew the rules when he started, and that there have not been any rules broken if the trade was not vetoed. Delete his message board posts too if you must, but you can't lock his team.

It wasn't me!

Ya gotta be preemptive with this kind of stuff in the preseason. Write down rules about this sort of thing beforehand so when it comes up there's nothing anyone can dispute.

I personally don't see any reason why you can't refund him his money and lock his team.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

Then you're just sending a message to the league that if you have a crappy team, you can whine you way out and get your money back. Don't do it.

I don't know if it's a Yahoo league, but if so, you can block him from posting on the message board.

Aside from that, it sounds like you've done all you could to calm the jackass down. So that's it. You can't do the refund/boot thing for the reason CPH listed. Just take the guy's money and don't invite him back next season.
