Fantasy Sports Etiquette

Recently touched upon by TMR in this post.

It seems as though he may have been scooped. I know that I will often throw out offers with the same player to multiple owners to see which may bite first.

Gamesmanship or breach of ethics here?

gamesmanship.
id say 75% of my offers are to multiple teams with the same players. i dont have to tell you im doing it, but i will.





If you are in a league with me, and you lucked into a chance at one of my thoroughbreds, that thoroughbred is being offered around to more than just you.

He's making something out of nothing. Sour grapes. What wrs said. Assume if a guy is being offered to you, he's being offered to other teams as well.

Gamesmanship

No email or text offer is a firm offer. A firm offer is one proposed in the game you use and cannot be undone.
