Deadbeat Owners!

Postby machine3 » Sun Jun 25, 2006 9:29 pm

I don't think there is anything that hurts a league more than deadbeat owners. I'm in a 14 team league, and 12 of the 14 are very active. The other 2 are deadbeats...one of them hasn't even changed his lineup since the end of April! Other than not letting them in the league again, is there anything you guys have done with deadbeats like this?

If its a public league you cant do anything. If its private the only thing I know of to do is not let them in next year like you said. Some people just like to draft

It's a private league. Funny thing is, neither of them even drafted their teams..Yahoo Auto-Draft. :-P

If they don't check at all, you could draft off their team. Otherwise there's not much you can do.

Make sure their teams are locked. I've seen it happen a couple times where a manager that hasn't touched his team in several months makes a sudden lopsided trade (usually to a friend). Also prevents them from dropping players.

Have the commish set the lineup to the best possible, and then lock the team up totally. The abilty to post messages and everything. Then have the commish only make changes if there is an injury or demotion, picking up the highest O-Ranked played, at the injured|demoted players position.
It helps to at least keep the team somewhat competititve.

Trading with the dead team should be forbidden. It will never be a fair deal so don't even open that pandoras box. It is not necassry for the health of the league.
