well if superfly is your commish, it sounds like he is on a power trip, if you want my opinion.
I agree with Amazin that you may be in the wrong here, but he can't change the league constitution in the middle of the season.
A) I would drop a player to rectify the situation.
B) I would look for another league next season. Looking at his IM replies and his subsequent post in this forum, I would never play with a commish that is this much of an A-hole. It is a game and it is supposed to be fun and then there are idiots like this that come along a ruin it for everybody.
just my .02
I hate Power trip commishes ..
fricking dispise them.
I don't think this is a power trip issue at all. TyP61382 is clearly not playing by the rules and even said 9 or 10 of the other league members are in favor for the commish editing his roster.
Why does Yahoo freeze rosters in situations like this? Because he is supposed to drop somebody to make room for the guy on the DL and Yahoo can't choose somebody to drop for him. In other words, by not dropping a player, this guy is taking advantage of a rule that was designed to protect HIS right to choose what player to drop. That's pretty low.
He can't win the league, so he's trying to negatively affect the rest of the league out of spite... at least that's what it sounds like. You know damn well this guy has somebody on his roster that he doesn't care about.
All I know is if this guy was in my league, he wouldn't have to worry about quitting. He wouldn't be invited back.
