Try opening an inquiry with them:

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/baseball/general.html

If they are that vulgar, they are probaly breaking some standard civility\code of conduct that most corps. put in place to protect themselves from lawsuits. It is a free country and people can say whatever they wish that is not harmful , but Yahoo is not a blog site or some free speech area for posting opinions, they are a private compay offering a fantasy baseball service to their customers. So they have a right to police themselves as they see fit to the best of my understanding, but I am not a lawyer.

I dont know if you can get a team deleated after drafted but you should complain about them I guess and see where that gets you

Thanks. I'll track down a yahoo address. I'm not averse to some good natured ribbing and a bit of swearing but this stuff was just sick. Including a nice graphic description of a bestiality video during the draft.

Honestly I dont think they can delete a team, they can lock everyone else from posting anything and even lock them from making moves which might play to your favour.

Is this a public or private league? They say they don't intervene in private leagues. But I was in a similar situation last year in a basketball league. It was a private league, and the commish was an immature, idiot. He basically called me names, and was vile and rude, after I called him out for cheating. He was making trades with inactive teams to stack up his team. So, to make a long story short, I emailed yahoo several times, and they took me out of the league.

If Yahoo is unable to do anything you can always cut your entire roster and make the league less enjoyable for the idiots you are playing with when they are all fending for superstars on the wire. Kind of childish I know, but if they are going to make the league an intolerable place to play, shame on them, and ruin the league for them.

Just don't manage your team. Not a big deal.
