FFL Commishioner Decision

9 posts in this topic

My opponent last week started Ray Rice and Brady Quinn. He picked up both players when he had already used up all of his alloted transactions. This week, the commish said that he Ray Rice would be removed from his team and Tyler Thigpen would be put back on (reversing the last transaction).

The team owner is now asking if R Rice was disallowed, then he should have had McGahee starting in week 10. He started McG in the prior week.

If he gets these points, it would change the outcome of the game and put my into a 1st place tie instead of a one game lead.

Thoughts? Can you really disallow an illegal transaction and ASSUME that he would have left an expected injured player who didnt play at all in week 9 to start in week 10? He had one other back on his roster who had zero points.

So the commish didn't catch the illegal transaction until after the games were played? Kind of a gray area, but there's no way he should be able add a different player in his starting lineup after the games are over.

If the transaction is illegal then I'd say the whatever player(s) that were acquired illegally should not count towards his total for that week and that team will get 0 points for that position in his lineup after removing the illegally acquired players.

That is correct, it wasnt caught.

At the same time, it is a friendly league and we try to keep things fair.

From the other players perspective, if I had McGahee get 15 points AND the new player get 15 points and was stripped of those points because it wasnt caught, I would be upset. Starting a bad player and getting zero points then wanting to insert someone else is pretty poor IMO.

I would agree with BeerBatter, if the transaction was illegal then those points should be erased. Penalty would be 0 pts for said players. Commish should have to approve any transaction before it is allowed in any league. Even in friendly leagues you have to play by the rules, if you have them : )

I wouldn't allow it. If anything he should lose that spot on his roster for that week.

I am the commish for my league and this reason is why we allow unlimited transactions. Although we have never had any issues with someone abusing the system.

If I were to limit transactions I would probably lay out the penalty for going over the limit before the season started.

I would probably lean toward giving 0 pts for that position as a penalty. The only other option is if the commish can try to be impartial and figure out what player likely would have been put into the spot if the transaction would have never occured, then just apply that players points to that weeks game.

Its a tough call, I can see both sides of it from a commish's perspective. I say make it simple and just disallow any points for that position, the player should understand that its a penalty for breaking the rules.

From the sounds of your league I'd say you are tied for first now.

Good Luck!

I agree with nofish. If they understood that there is a limit on the number of transactions prior to this happening (should be documented prior to the season), then the penalty for an invalid roster would zero points for that position.

Making an assumption of which player they would have started opens up the door for future woulda, coulda, shoulda's and the precedent has been set and it will be tough to reverse the process.

My next argument would have been that he might have tried to make a trade to fill a position where he didnt think he had a worthwhile healthy player.

He made the right decision last night and let thing stand w/ R Rice in there, ergo, no points.

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
