Question concerning an unmanaged team

Postby iagainsti » Thu May 23, 2013 3:55 pm

I had not realized until week 7 that a team had not been managed since the draft, the owner had not changed his lineups even once but i hadn't noticed because they didn't have the worst record. my question is, would it be wrong for the commissioner to take over the team and make it more competitive?

I've received tons of arguments that the team should just be left alone.

the league is an 8 team head to head with 2 divisions, so the division with the unmanaged team basically has one more matchup with the unmanaged team than the other division.

Definitely don't take it over. If you do, all you'll hear is the rest of the league complaining that they can't trade with you and get mad. But honestly you should either a) leave it alone. or b) bench everyone on the tea, and discard all wins/losses against that team for the season (calculated at the end) and it could be like a bye week. Either way, the biggest problem is that everyone on the team is essentially untouchable.

I think you should manage the lineup to its best and ask the league if you can you know A) stream starters for it B) pick up some utility players, hot players, etc (cut the fat off the team) - don't just flat out take it over...but do make sure whoever plays it gets a fair matchup.
