I have been very vocal in my opposition to the rule change and have gone as far as suggesting it is cheating for the commish to make this change... as he is in second place just behind me in the league standings.
Yes, as much as I agree that no rules should ever be changed mid year in any league... I crossed my fingers and suggested this:
Yeah, I am the only team who is almost out of moves.... and I am the only team who has gone from an autodrafted mediocrity to 1st place in the league. And I did it by investing a crapload of time, effort and good risk taking of picking up young pitchers before anyone one else. I did it by playing according to the league rules knowing that even without moves I would be on a level playing field at the end of the year since no one else could pickup replacements unless they dropped those good players being sat.
Now, your end of year rule change does nothing but punish me, and only me, for my hard work and for playing according to the rules. If that isn't cheating, I don't know what is?
Of course, since it doesn't seem to bother you to change rules at the end of the year, then it also wouldn't bother you to also change the limit on transactions and in fact, rather than being a change which is prejudicial towards one team, corrects a prejudice imposed by your other change.
Is my suggestion to commit two sins instead of just one to maintain a level playing field twice as wrong or a good solution to our commish's sin? Am I just as wrong as the commish, in proposing the second end of year rule change to correct the first end of year rule change? Or, is it like taking the lemons tossed at me and trying to make lemonade?
