Maniac Loose in the League - Should He Be Kicked Out?

Postby Metsin06 » Mon Apr 07, 2008 4:18 am

I've run in to an unfortunate problem with a GM in my league. Hes got a history of problems and in the last few weeks/days it has gotten even worse. Last year he was warned for inactivity but this year hes made a mess unlike anything I've ever seen, and I am not really sure how to handle it.

He finished in dead last in our keeper league last year and vowed to make changes, unfortunately he got rocked in a few trades before the season and went in to the year with a decent but pretty bad team. He had Manny Ramirez, Matt Holliday, Lance Berkman, Travis Hafner, Derek Jeter and thats about it. So 2 days in to the season, yes TWO, he is in last place and not doing too well. So what does he do? BLOWS IT UP. First he deals Lance Berkman for James Loney, John Maine and 2 draft picks in the NEXT YEAR draft (2 days in to THIS year). Then he trades Travis Hafner for Jay Bruce and Evan Longoria, neither is in the majors. Then he trades Manny Ramirez for Johnny Cueto. He also dropped Eric Gagne and to make matters even worse, dropped Evan Longoria and didnt even pick anyone up. He claims to be building a team of young players but his moves are unpredictable and quite frankly, stupid. His current lineup is an absolute mess, here it is (WARNING DO NOT READ IF YOU ARE PREGNANT, ILL OR ALLERGIC TO IDIOTS)

2B - Aaron Hill

Pretty awful team, huh? Hes currently getting destroyed, dead last with 25 pts when the leader has 80 pts (Roto league).

He also has been involved with several ridiculous sagas where he is claiming a conspiracy against him. First, he changed his league email to an inactive account (likely so he could eventually quit the league and not be reminded with updates). When he was called out, he blamed the commish and his own brother (another GM) and said he was hacked and framed. The next day, he changed his team name to THE TITANIC (likely because its a sinking ship) and again blamed the commish for trying to set him up. Hes attacked GMs on the messageboards, started a fire sale on the 2nd day of the season and is ruining the league. We have some new GMs and its become a complete embarrassment.

What should be done about this wayward GM? Should he be kicked out? Is he corrupt or just really stupid? I think he is just doing this because he will lose interest in about a month and wants to have as crappy a team as possible, but he says he will stay active. Should this GM be thrown out? All he does is pack lips, eat disgusting food, make ridiculous trades, pretend to be working in the stock market, lie about owning yachts and helicopters, rent movies and blow thru EZ Passes. Its getting ridiculous. Should this individual get the boot?
