CBS sportline league help please (cheating commish)

Postby Krunk City King$ » Mon Jun 01, 2009 5:13 am

We have a possible situation in which our commish may be cheating. Our lineups lock 5 minutes prior to gametime on a daily basis. And all commisioner's retro-active transactions show up in red. Also transactions made for teams other than the commish's show up in red too I believe. But anyhoo, we have had several situations in which the commish activated players that were locked after the deadline. Twice the transactions were reversed and 3 times they were not (giving him post-deadline points in the process).

I know that CBS sportsline gives you a message that pops up in your lineup window when you make changes to your lineup on future dates or for days to come. And I also believe that a warning pops up when you make retro-active lineup changes on days that have passed. I did help our last commish when she went on vacation, and I cannot remember all of the display messages. Our current commish is claiming that he had no idea of what he was doing at the time. Some of us are thinking that he just did not know that we could see them under the lineup transactions page.

Could anyone tell me if there is a message that pops up for certain, and could someone please copy and paste what the warning says if possible? We just want to know how good his "excuse" really is. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance! :-[

So everything is in red? And I am guessing that normal transactions made on the current day are in all black? The commissioner is saying that "all of his transactions are in red"....whatever that means. Does the page in which you set your lineup ever look all black and not red (before you do anything;which would take place on the current day I presume)?

And to get on the screen to where you got to (in the past), you had to consciously click on a past date (not just log in and blindly set your lineup; by having the site itsself take you to the wrong date)?

Can this also be confirmed by chance?



Thank you in advance again!

I am a Commish. If I make a roster change on my team, on the Transaction List, it will appear black. just like yours. If I make one for your team it is red. If I want to go in and backdate a player move for my team, I must put a checkmark in a box and it brings up the date box. I then change the date and click OK. These will come up in red on the Transaction List. It can't be done by accident. There are too many steps involved. Your Commish is cheating.
