What to do when the commish

Postby bluntyboy » Fri Jul 29, 2005 12:53 pm

who is in the lead of the league (roto) by like 12 points from 2nd place(he has 128, last place has 34). makes a trade with the last place team. And only one person can veto it(him). check out the trade:

Commish sends:
Mariano Rivera
Harang

Commish gets:
Ichiro
Harden
Clement



This is the 2nd time he made a trade with the last place team, giving up escobar, hunter for andruw jones, and bonderman. Its a private league where we all are friends and the pot is like over 300 bucks at steak. Me and 4 other guys (out of 10) are thinking of backing out of the league, because this is the second year hes bull somed bs like this.

The funny thing is he thinks the other guy(in last place) is getting the better end of the deal.

What do you do?

Call him out on it and threaten to start a new league next year without him.

Also call out the last place team for being a jackass.

If they don't do anything about it, or acknowledge you, don't play with them anymore.

Agreed. While it's not the most imbalanced deal ever, the situation certainly smacks of collusion.

I would make a scene about it and demand explanations from both parties.

Definatly, make everyone else see what's going on and make them explain themselves...

...and if that doesnt work punch him in the neck, that'll show him you're pissed off... }:-) [/b]

5 managers called him out on it, he says that he went by the yahoo rankings :-P

i talked to the last place guy, he just said hahahahahahah on aim.

we threaten to back out, and 75% of the league didnt pay the dues to play yet, and we are thinking of not paying


we called him out, and all the commish did was bitch at us for being crybabies when its an even deal.

Whatever happens, report back and tell us. I hate it when there is no ending to the story. ;-)

I agree with the punch him in the neck routine. If that doesn't work, blow him up with a gernade or surface-to-air missile his house.

That seems to be your best alternative. Then, next year, do not include either of them in your league.

Commish should never be given the sole authority to veto his own trades.
