It doesn't happen often enough to be a pain, and I'd rather the owner field the best team he can.
Agree 100%. I tell the guys in my league that any last minute change needs to be called/emailed to me before the start of the first game and Ill make it right. (weekly league)
Happens once every couple weeks or so, not enough to be a big deal. Some of the guys forget to set their lineup that morning and realize they need to make a change later in the day. Not everyone has internet access all day/every day. It also happens during the summer, someone on vacation can hear about an injury and tell me to flop a player on their roster for that week and Ill do it. I wont pick up FA but Ill change his starter at his request.
Last year a buddy called me from a cruise in the middle of the Med to bench someone.
