#$@*^%, #$(*&%@, !@%$!!!, Cafe, #$#*&^, sons of #@$*&^%, Mother @#$*^%@#$%.

I requested that they re-drop Benitez and Timlin and pick up whoever they think they need. And I offered to pay the additional money to fix it. I hope you're all happy. I have a guilty conscience. Jerks.

I've been "encouraging" the bottom teams to start certain players and add/drop certain other players who I think will help them catch the 1st place team in certain categories and therefore semi-sabotage him.


I haven't read any responses yet, but I have no problem with this. ;-D


I'm also paying for their transactions but he doesn't know that. Is this collusion? Should it be illegal?


I have a big problem with this. 8-o
and yes it should be illegal .. :-t


curious to see what everybody else says here ..

Or am I just making the smart move to try to sabotage my buddy by doing what I can within the rules?

Oh wow. Thats such blatant collusion/bribery I don't even know what to say. You are paying for their transactions and telling them who to start so they can do better, and in turn help you? Yeah, thats blatent collusion dude.

The "but he doesn't know that" is the clincher, hombre. If you really had no ethical problems, you'd be very open about it.

Nothing wrong with suggesting moves to another team, but as someone else pointed out, paying for the transactions effectively makes you a co-manager.

Maybe I'm alone in this but the only thing he's doing is giving them (a) information to coach their team well and (b) incentive to do it. Collusion is when you get someone to do something that doesn't benefit their team in order to benefit yours. This is simply getting crappy/lazy/cheap managers to actually manage their teams.

AT..... That is low. Especially in a huge money league like yours..... Paying peopel to make moves that benefit you is definitely collusion...

I'd say no. Paying for them is where you cross the line, but I do agree that they have no incentive to make moves. Fight for a rule change next year, but I think you've got to play by the current rules, which means you cna't pay for them.
