Shady Commisioners

Sketchiest commish move I've ever seen happened this weekend.

Quick background: An old friend asked me to join his league last year. Easy to see right away it was poorly run. They wanted to re-draft because people didn't know the rules. Full of d-bags who respond to trade offers with "idiot" and "I wasn't born yesterday." But I ended up winning the title, and he turned it into a keeper, so I decided to return and defend my crown. My mistake.

So yesterday I'm playing the commish's team. I'm following along all day on Fantasy Cast. He's got Vick/Rodgers starting at QB (two QB league) with Favre on his bench. The morning games are almost over, about 1pm PST. I look away for a minute, come back and Favre is suddenly in his lineup and Vick is on his bench. The dude saw Favre had a good game, so he used his league manager powers to edit his lineup AFTER the game was over. He did the same thing at Flex -- took out an injured Malcom Floyd after his game was over and put in Spiller, who had already played.

I called him on it. He tried to deny it, then basically admitted to it, but said it wasn't a big deal because I was winning anyway. Started feeding me all these BS excuses. What a joker. Needless to say, I'm done with that POS league. Easily the shadiest thing I've ever seen out of a commish.

So I ask, what's the shadiest thing you've ever seen done by a commish?

I was in a league with a similar situation. I quit paying attention from there on (wasn't a money league)...I was beating a guy by like 30-40 pts or so...and he edited his lineup to get the better plays that were on his bench, in his lineup.

The same thing happened to my buddy in our dynasty league. He didn't even catch it. I did. So I started watching and noticed he did it again the following week.

I called him out on it and he claimed that he made the changes before the game. But me being the co-commish in that league I had the ability to see when changes are made. I didn't bust that out on him but he cooled it ever since.

He was also shady in alot of other ways but can't really remember why.....

That s**t pisses me off. the exact same thing happened to me five years ago in one league.

Nothing worse than a f**king cheating commissioner.

Yahoo now shows all the changes that a commish does right?

I'm pretty sure it does.

Do they? I haven't commished a Yahoo league in a while, and this one was ESPN.

ESPN lists it on the team's transaction log. I looked it up there and found it -- says "modified active roster (By League Manager)" and the time.
No doubt if it was a money league I'd be yelling from the rooftops, posting messages and whatnot. But since it's just a scrubby league, I'm just gonna keep quiet and be on my way.
