You can veto his trades, field your best team and beat him anyway. I was in one 2 years ago and 5 minutes after the draft the guy tried trading Barry Larkin for A-Rod. It was vetoed and just about every other crazy trade he tried to make was vetoed too. He quick around the all-star break. Haven't done many public leagues since then.

agreed. just veto his trades. if the players in your league stay active, you should have the votes to cancel out his crap.

Had a guy like that in basketball this year. He got called on it before he made any deals and everything's been more or less fine.
Some guys were real pissed, but everyone got past it. He still plays the stronger team.
Turned out to be a rather functional league for a Public Yahoo.

Stupid that people resort to such things.

Just make sure all the other owners are aware of what he's done and there shouldn't be any problems.

Yup. Post something on the msg board, and ensure that he doesn't trade with himself.

I'm not sure if it'd work, but it couldn't hurt to try and contacting Yahoo and see if they can freeze one of his teams.
I'm back. Sorta.

Some folks just gotta win at almost any cost.
Trying to have two teams in the same league in order to make an uber-team is one of 'em.

Just how infantile is that dodge? Everybody in the league with a brain will know pretty quickly what's up.

Hey! You boneheads that try that...why don'cha just get the entire league to yourself? That way you can make the uberest uber team ever and no other owners would complain. course you'd also have the crummiest crummy teams of all time...

Or, do it us he-men do. Take years of work and patience and sweat and luck to build a monster team.

I love to hear the MOANS and GROANS of my competetors when I take their draft pick one round too early.

Are you certain one person has two teams? A couple years ago we had the same suspicions as the same email adress and yahoo ID were on two teams. Actually it turned out to be a father and his minor son who he was just protecting from cyber pervs. The never did a shady trade. On a CBS league, we had a husband and wife in the league with the same email address, again they didn't do any shady trades.

How in the world could that happen in a public league? As far as I know, when joining a public league, you don't have a choice about which one to join, it's least I thought it was. This is bizarre, but I would definately email the person to see if it is something like a father and his minor child in the same league. I bet nine times out of ten that would be the case. As long as there are no super lopsided deals, there shoud not be a problem.....
