Unfortunately there is always a chance that getting into a public league with a bunch of guys you've never heard of before can turn out bad. I'd say the instances of a commish being this bad are pretty rare - he does sounds like a pretty sad loser if he'd rather cheat and win an empty league than have a competitive season. More often what can happen is that you can find two or three guys who use public league for drafting practice and then abandon their teams as soon as they start failing.
My piece of advice would always be to try to join a league that is advertised on here or one of the other similar boards. The Yahoo and ESPN boards seem to be full of guys shooting their mouth rather than having a real interest in their leagues. If you find a league advertised in the classifieds here, then you can check out the guy who has posted it and have confidence that you are getting into a worthwhile league. Alternatively, post a message under classifieds saying that you are looking for a league and what your ideal setup is (H2H/Roto, size of league, type of draft/auction, free/money etc). There are loads of decent commissioners out there looking to fill spots at this time of year.
Don't let that experience put you off. Hopefully this will be the chance to find a league that really suits you instead.

He then proceeded to give himself the #1 waiver pick and then traded Tejada/Wiggington for Wright/Pedroia to a team whose manager has the same last name as commish. He also kicked the most vocal manager out of the league and transferred ownership to another team.
