I don't see how people get gratification from "winning" your league when 11 out the 12 players in the league don't even acknowledge your win as legit.

I thought there was an option that you could say "no" to commish changes. Maybe that was removed :-?

What I would do? Keep playing in the league with a waiver wire team and see if you can win. Now that would be a challenge ;-D

If it's a custom league, they won't. Something like this happened to me a while ago, and since it wasn't a public league they weren't able to help.


Maybe they won't be able to get your team back, but I would think they could at least block him from getting the opportunity to do this in the future.

Exactly my thought. I can't conceive of doing something like this. Personally, I'd send the email and abandon the whole thing.

Write the commish and tell him you're friends with Ugueth Urbina. :-D

It could mean you forgot to log out on a public computer and some jerk dropped your players as a joke.

I had a chance to do this once. It was very tempting, but instead I made some ridiculous trade offers instead and posted a few stange notes on the message board before logging off.

While I'm sure that does happen, that's not the case here. Note the original post:

What does (c2007-05-15) mean?


That's a commish change, and noted that way to prevent this kind of thing from happening without the members of the league knowing about it.


Anyway, your commish is a cheater, plain and simple. Sorry to hear you woulnd up with such a person as the commish of your league. Try our "Classifieds" forum and see if you can find a league with some of our solid guys. ;-D

You still have a chance if it's a head to head league. You're probably SOL if it's Roto.

it seems pretty stupid. i mean, its not even like he tried to sneak an unfair trade through, he blantantly dropped your players and put them on his team. im pretty sure the rest of the league wouldnt compete either, thus making the league worthless.
