Problem with one team in my league

Postby yankeekd25 » Tue May 29, 2007 9:21 am

I am the commish of a Yahoo League where we weekly set the lineups. This kid decided he was gonna be a **** and benched all of his players, so the kid that's playing him this week will go 12-0. Is there anything I can do?

Unfortunately, not really.... but I guess it's probably a good thing it's happening this early in the season so you can identify where the problems will be, rather than right before the playoffs.

If it was a money league, I'd wait until the week was over, give him an opportunity to re-set his lineup, and then lock him out for two weeks. No trades, no roster moves, no waivers.

If it happens again the next time he plays the same guy (or anybody really), I'd set his roster for him and lock him out for a month.

I would lock him out of the season with all his players on the bench. He wants to give someone a 12-0 every one should get it then.

Thats tought... I would send a butt-load of emails and just tell him that he is on the verge of getting kicked out.

Yea, I don;t know if I should keep his roster blank for everyone to take advantage of, or set one lineup and lock him out. The kid in second place is facing him next week, so I'm definitely gonna put a lineup in.

So that's your basis for your decision for next week, because he's play a top team?

:-t

Horrible way to look at things.

... And keep one in. The only thing is I don't know how to deal with the kid this week getting a 12-0 boost in the standings. Is it fair to give everyone a 12-0 boost? No, because some teams play him more than others.

I would set his roster for now and find a replacement manager.
