1 Manager has 2 Teams

Postby sox 06 » Sun Jun 24, 2007 5:38 pm

I just noticed that two teams in my league have the same manager. Both of these teams have been virtually inactive since April. Is one manager who has 2 teams in one league a bad thing?

Yes, because it leads to the possibility of cheating. He could make "trades" with himself and get an unfair advantage...

depends on the guy. obviously he could do what the above guy said.

but there could be a few reasons for it. there could be two people just simply using the same login.
i was in a league with two brothers who used just one yahoo ID, so the same email was used by both, but believe it or not, in the 3 years i played with them, i never ran into a single issue.

they did trade a fair bit with each other actually too, but i suppose if you live 2gether, it is a lot easier to find common trades, and if you have two teams, it would be a lot easier to make trades for the needs of each team.

although i would monitor it very closely. however, in this case since he's inactive, it doesnt seem like it will matter.

Could be a cheat. A dumb and lazy one at that. Using the same login and then not being active since April to boot. Now that's a winner right there... :b
