And I don't get this playoff thing? what is that?... and why would you have it? Our FB season ends the last day of regular season... Do the top teams, then draft players from the playoff teams? I do't get it or understand how under any circumstances a playoffs would make a FB league any better.... Once it's playoff times in real baseball, I don't care about my FB team, the season is over, I'm just into the real games.

In H2H there is playoffs for like the last few weeks.

Anyways, how has the league responded to this thread? Post it again if you have to, because these idiots should not get away with this.

You've just had your 1st round pick stolen from you. The league has decided that you are not good enough for them. Quit while you're ahead. The commish will finish in 7th place and then have your pick. Quit, you're no longer ahead.

Dear commish of this guys league:

Please quit jerking him and around, and stop making rule changes midseason that favor you and your team. That's a big Boo.

H2H leagues have four to six team (depends on size) playoffs where teams with the best record move on elimination style until the top two teams face each other - its done before the regular season ends - no redraft, you bring with you who you got plus add/drop.

I still say quit the league - why waste time and effort, gain added frustration over a league that won't play by the rules - thousands of other leagues out there, new ones forming all the time, write this one off I'd say.

That's why I never join a league where the commissioner can spoil the the season by cheating.
