Just don't pay. Sounds like he is cheating to me.

No offense, but if your commish pulled the same bs last year, you shouldn't be too surprised that he did it again this year.

this definitely sounds like a non-legit trade. don't send the commish your dues and exclude him from any future leagues.

I've got news for you. He's LYING! Why would anyone in their right mind make a trade if they think they are getting the short end of the stick. Ask him that question, in front of the whole league and make him answer. He won't, he can't, because it isn't logical. Then everyone should have him reverse the trade, or give everyone their money back.

Oh, and, never play with this bum again. :-t

Just call him out in front of the rest of the league on the message boards and see what he says. It sounds like he's a p.o.s anyways, start a new league with out him next year. And if worse comes to worse, you can always fight him.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I'd call him out again, and then quit the league and don't pay. That is a terrible trade, especially since the other guy is in last.

Well put (and by a guy who walks the walk, btw).
Keep this in mind when you boys form up your new, improved league.

I agree w/ the others.

Same thing happened to us the first couple years a bunch of us friends/acquaintances (from work) played fantasy baseball although no money was involved -- but the commish did try to get us to play for money. Nowadays, none of us play (or do much of anything) w/ that guy who commished the league. We just exclude him (and his buddy) every year. And another friend is complaining to us about not giving him enough warning before joining an NBA fantasy league w/ that guy.

BTW, both times that very fishy things happened between the commish and his buddy (whom we didn't know), the situation escalated to the point that somebody dumped his entire roster into the WW -- this was before Yahoo instituted any undroppable list. The 1st time we managed to salvage things (after the roster dump), but the 2nd time, we just gave up and walked away.
