Yahoo Baseball - An Abusing Commissioner in private leagues

Postby NikeTxGuy » Wed Jun 14, 2006 7:41 pm

Has anyone have this in their league? I certainly do... I checked yahoo and unfortunately they can't do a thing about private leagues because its not yahoo... and this is killing me because the guy that is commissioner, thinks I make horrible lopsided trades when I do not... EVERYONE else in the league thinks I make good trades but him... and thats not right... what sucks is that I had to apologize so that he wouldn't lock my team up from me accessing it... because I saw that commissioners can do that if needed... I am 1st place in my league by 15 points, and he thinks that I am doing these trades so I can rip people off and win the championship belt... LOL... whatever!!! :-b though I am happy being in 1st place... I don't do it so I leave others in the dust... I mean, who wouldn't like being in 1st? 8-o

Pretty long post, all you really said was your don't like your commish for vetoing your trade.

that is the problem, i was part of a lot of leagues when the fantasy baseball started, and this was the team that was in 3rd, 2nd or 1st... It was currently in 2nd when I saw where it was in standings position...

I did some tweaking and I have done well but now I am afraid I will be limited to trades since he's become a real J*** !

I would make that trade just as you would. Number one if you were in my league based on that alone you would get a big fat REJECT. I will not get into fair or not fair, anytime you are trading 3 players for 1 it shifts too many players which shifts the entire the league. Why don't you step up and make a real trade? Give value for value and I bet you will no longer have issues with trading.

I don't see anything wrong with N:1 trades. And when they involve FA pickups without job securities, they do not "shifts too many players which shifts the entire the league". N:1 trade can benefit both parties.

I'm not a fan of 3-for-1 trades either, but that's not for the Commish to decide. Screw that guy. Bench your entire team.
