churning. WHEN THEY'RE OUTTA THE PLAYOFFS!!

Postby bluefire7 » Wed Sep 22, 2004 4:57 pm

one of the managers in my church h2h league is such a sad sad loser.. lol.

the guy talked trash bout my team the entire season, and he lost in the quarterfinals. then i guess i pissed him off and talked trash bout him cuz he lost (to a manager not even playing no less :-D ).

so now he's churning the players on the WW cuz he's a lil baby and wants me to lose to the guy he lost to (i'm up 9-7 currently) in the championship.

i love to get guys off the WW that i think will perform well game by game, and he's attempting to stop me from doing it i guess. i switch from 1-2 fringe players day by day.

any ideas as to how to go about stoppin him short of emailing the commish? :-?

PS- he's not even churning the right guys.. B-)

This is a prime example of why yahoo has Rule number 4 I think it is.

There's not much you can do now though..... by the time Yahoo gets around to locking him, it'll be too late. Your commish might be able to lock his transactions though, since he's clearly violating Yahoo's rules (I assume this is a Yahoo league).

Well, if he's not churning the right guys, then what difference does it make? :-D

I'd say notify the commish and find a new owner for next year. B-)

this is a church h2h league?
talk to the pastor/preacher/priest and convince him to tell the guy that if he continues this he will go to hell ;)

I didn't even notice it was a church league at first. Do you guys have to bench all your players on Sunday? :-b

But yeah, tell him he's going to hell if he keeps this up. It just might work.

Wouldn't it be funny if it was the head priest himself who talked trash and churned just so your team would lose? :-D

Yeah and he could just absolve himself of his sin... It's the perfect crime.

And I agree alert the commish, tell the guy to stop, and find a new owner for the next year.

I agree what he is doing sucks, but I'm going to take a slightly different view here. I assume he is doing this to spite you, which should be against the rules, but...

What he is doing sounds more like spot starting then churning, and in H2H leagues whether you are out of the championship or not you can still compete for other positions (3rd and 4th play each other, etc) so if he was spot starting just for the sake of competition can you fault him? I don't think you can.

That being said, he sounds like he is just bitter and immature...

If you noticed I have no interest in actually playing bonderman or greene, or hinske or bobby crosby. I'm just picking them up so other people (no names mentioned) can't add them to stack their stats.


that's a quote from his post. NO INTEREST IN PLAYING THEM...

grrr.. :-t
