is this CHEATING?

Postby roncool11 » Sun Jun 10, 2007 10:17 pm

Does yahoo have a rule against this somewhere or can someone give me a link saying this is cheating?

We have a pool with Limited moves (15), now I don't want anyone talking about how thats stupid though.

A member is near the limit and lately as part of trades he has been getting people to pick up a player he wants to throw into the deal so he doesn't have to make the move. This includes ONE for ONE trades were it would be like him doing nothing but dropping a player and adding a player. However this way he doesn't have to use a move :?

Is their a rule against this and is it cheating?

No rule against it, and I don't see how that would be cheating. If people want to use their moves for him, that's their perrogative.

If he gets value (the new player without giving up a move) and they get value (a better player than they are giving up), then it's a valid and fair trade.

Seems legit to me. Why do you think it's cheating as opposed to savvy management?

Not really cheating to me, the other play wastes his moves to help him out. Eventually, they'll all start to realize it and stop unless they benefit from it somehow.

Not really cheating, that's in a way like a team trading away, or giving up, their draft picks in my opinion.

Smart management in my books, not cheating at all.

Agreed. Boy, that 15-move limit would be a ball-buster! 8-)

ok just checking Im Commisoner and alot of people have started to complain about it. Lol yea the 15 move limit is a ball-buster but I think it nakes thinks interesting. It's a different mindset and strategy. Only downside is I can't do any streaming :[

We have a 20 cap in our league. It turns it into a game of chess, every move is very well thought out, and the trigger fingers are much more hesitant.
