Dropping out of a Yahoo league?

Postby schmidty » Sun Apr 08, 2007 7:56 pm

I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this, but thought I'd toss it out here just to be sure:

Once you join a Yahoo Private league, and the season starts, there's no dropping out, right? I'm mean, I know one can just stop playing and going to the league page ... but the team (and its record) is locked in there?

Just wondering. I'm in one league with a few people I played with before, and a few I haven't. And there's starting to be some offensive racial and sexual slurs tossed about the message posts and "smack talk". Nothing witty that I can see ... just stupid and mean-spirited stuff. I suppose for some leagues this is standard practice ... but that kind of trash talking is not for me. I sent a private message to the commissioner (one of the guys I played with before). Guess I'll see what happens now. But if this kind of activity continues, I really don't want to keep playing with these people.

I don't know ... maybe I'm just getting old/conservative/sensitive. But checking in on the league page on Easter Sunday (getting pasted 2-8 BTW), and seeing an obscene tirade posted against me because I wouldn't trade with a guy (my Luis Castillo for his Bartolo Colon). It just makes me angry and sad.

Yeah, you can't drop it. I mean, if you could, that would ruin the whole league and there would be one less team. Wouldn't make sense..

No need to drop, email yahoo they'll stop letting them post ,make moves and/or lock the roster. Probably delete the offensive posts and warnings from their webhampster.

Since you know the commish, maybe you can get him to lock the guy's roster if he doesn't keep his mouth shut. Otherwise I'd just keep playing and ignore it, he's not screaming in your face, you don't have to read anything offensive.

Yeah, I'm in a league right now where people make offensive slur's about my religion (especially since it is Easter now.)

I've learned that they are all just jealous because I have the best team (24 team league with Reyes, Wright, Beltran, Smoltz, Wagner) and they are just trying to get me to quit.

I've learned to just stop replying. They are just words. Let them look like the idiot while you take him the prize ;-D

Nothing truly pisses people like that more than by not replying and you having the last word. After a couple of years playing games on the internet, I've learned that those immature kids just want to get a rise out of you and it ticks them off a lot more if you ignore them.

Why do you have to read the posts? You could just play the games and ignore the idiots.
