So far, instead of quitting, I have been trying to educate the Commish and a few of his buddy owners on why changing rules midstream is wrong and bad for the league.
- During our Major League Draft, you could pick a minor leaguer but you then had to keep him on your Major League Roster(taking up a roster spot) or you could demote him to your Minor League roster but then you lose your first round pick in the Minor League Draft. So, within the rules(there WERE none regarding this), when I went OTC for my 5th round pick in the Minor League Draft, I logged onto our Yahoo League site, dropped the rookie on my Major League Roster, filled the spot with a MLB SP who was starting the following day, and then returned to the Minor league Draft where I then re-drafted the player I just dropped onto my minor league roster.
Of course, some other owners wanted to do the same thing, but other owners (including the Commish) who had previously given up their 1st round Minor league pick to demote their rookie were incensed. They had no choice to allow my pick but then added a rule which disallowed it for all others.
- Last night, I was at my son's track meet and almost missed my pick... but got it in with 20 minutes to go in my 6 hour pick limit. Then, when the next guy made his pick at 11pm, I knew that might cause the following ownr to miss his pick limit... so, when I got up as I always do at 5am to get the kids up and ready for school, I checed the email thread to see if the next guy missed his pick... which he did. So I emailed the next guy up and he and then one more owner quickly picked before the sleeping owner woke up andeven saw he was OTC and missed his pick
Sometimes, making others pay for their cheating is better than just packing up and quitting.
