Bad Experience with Commish, Get My Money Back?

Postby Kingsac » Mon Jun 30, 2008 1:14 pm

Hi,

Here is a my experience with a bad commish, hopefully some of you who are also commish's can learn from my terrible experience. Please let me know if I deserve my money back.

I was locked out of a league last month, the note said "the league wasn't right for me", though I have strong feelings that I was locked out for not trading with the commish.

the commish, and would constantly sent me trades for players that were lopsided, or of no interest to me. When I would decline he would call me a moron through league wide notes.

After being ejected I was told through current players in the league that he took over my team and made trades to his own, just further cementing the fact that this was the true reason for ejection.

My question is, should I receive a refund considering the nature of my ejection from the league?

I belive I should, or at the very least a pro-rated amount for the 1.5 months I was in the league.

Thanks for reading.

You should get 100% of your money back.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

You should not only get your money back, but the money of the so called commish back.

Josh Woods was the commish, and would constantly sent me trades for players that were lopsided, or of no interest to me. When I would decline he would call me a moron through league wide notes.

I don't know why you mentioned his name. Should we know him or something?

But if your story is true, this guy stole your money. He setup a league, took your money, and when you wouldn't let him rip you off, he kicked you out with no refund? Yes, you deserve all your money back.

Well, thats problem #1. I dont understand why you would do a pay league with strangers. While I would send him an email asking for money back, there really is little recourse here.

(Also, edit your post and take out his name, thats probably a bad idea)

Do you deserve your money back? Absolutely.

Will you actually get it back? Probably not.

Is this a keeper league? What were some of the lopsided trades? Were there any weird stat rules you were possibly not considering? Just playing devil's advocate...

None of these questions really matter. Any owner has the right to refuse trades without getting thrown out.

As far as putting the guy's name in the OP's post, I think that's legit. The guy is a douche and other people should know it.

Oh, I totally agree. Let me clarify- I'm just trying to understand where the manager might be coming from. I wouldn't be surprised to see this kind of shenanigans from a commish in a public league, but it seems pretty beyond the pale for someone in a money league to rig the system for no reason other than to help himself. What are the other players saying about this?
