I see no normal reason why you should have 2 teams in the same league unless you were the commish in a private league (under certain circumstances). To me, it's cheating.

Coming from a guy that has a Bonds avatar. ;-D

And just because he added 60 pounds of muscle over his career doesn't mean he was on the juice!

How is it cheating? Seriously...as others have stated...if no trading is involved between his two teams....then I do not have a big problem with it. Hell...if he is in one of my leagues...his 2 teams are playing for 2nd and 3rd anyway. LOL

Hey brainchild, this here thread is about having two teams in one league, not Barry Bonds.
I reply in 1,000 of threads, so I am quessing we are to expect this sort of 'wisdom' that you offer from your keyboard after all my replies?

It sounds like somebody is still bitter about Coach Cochell bieng fired. I'm guessing you share his views, since you sport the avatar ... ;-D

I would be willing to take the over on whether this guy tries to make any trades between the 2 teams. :-?

noudo25.......Quick question.......Did he admit to this or did you find this out on your own?? Very important question here.

oukurt.......This really has nothing to do with Bonds, unless he is the 1 sporting 2 teams in this league. :-°

:-P Well there is no way to remain objective, you would want both teams to win..so one will have to lose, how bad is up to the person with 2 teams, (H2H league)..Its kind of like Pete Rose betting on baseball, "Whats the harm if he bets on his team to win?" Well it depends if your the guy with a pulled hammy and he's telling you to steal so he can cover the spread... :-t It just screams conflict of intrest alll over the place!

Plus he can use the one team to take points away from teams contending with his other team. Or bench his speed guys so that his contending team can gain points in SBs.

Not cheating but a huge conflict of interest which makes it easy to cheat. One could theoretically be honest in this situation, but screw that. I wouldn't want to be in a league with a guy who has two teams.
