FYI, Chizip hasn't even had any league activity since October. I'd say it's safe to start planning for a new commish and new setup for next year.

And it's not just sour grapes, I must say. Lots of people wait til the last minute to pre-rank because so much activity is still going on in the NFL before the season starts (injuries, players being cut, starters being named, etc.). My sister has had a damn good season and I'm one spot away from making the playoffs. Both of us are adamant that a) it wasn't fair that the date of the draft was changed at the last minute and b) the player pool is too thin in this league for the number of teams.

Fantasy football does involve skill (and vigilance). Last I checked, there was one defense available for our entire league. That's just not cool. How can anyone maneuver and compete when there are no players to choose from?

So yeah, it's not just the players at the bottom of the league who want things changed. Our leagues ran smoothly in the past, and hopefully next year we'll get back to something a little more competitive and fun.

Two weeks ago there were no defenses available.

Does being the leader in overall points mean anything?

I never said the auto-draft league was "balanced". I said it was challenging.

I didn't say changes shouldn't be made, starting with a new Commissioner; nor did I object to anyone's suggestion of who that should be.

I believed the draft was "equally unfair" to all managers; I still do.

I wouldn't have said anything at all if someone who doesn't even think the "league actually matters" didn't say it was just "luck" to be doing well in it.

I wonder if it's "just luck" that he's winning in the other league. If he was "congratulated" on his luck, would he take it as a compliment? Would anyone?
Probably not; it takes away from the efforts needed to start the "right" players every week.

All I said it takes 'luck & skill' to succeed in a deep league. I'm glad somebody understood what I was trying to say.

I never tried to make any of this personal, name-call, or threaten anyone; even when I didn't buy what they were saying. I just gave my opinion.

Don't forget...




it's just a game.

Last week before the playoffs. I advise you all to do well, because you'll probably want one more win before I destroy you in the playoffs.

the problem is that there are too many people playing. even if there were less teams, the talent would still be thin.

i don't understand what the issue with the date of an auto-draft is. if you really think it's that important, do the live draft.

i'm the commish of the live league and have been the commish most of the time for football and baseball. i haven't checked my team in weeks, frankly because i'm just too busy to care about a team where no money is on the line. such is life. the role of the commish is frankly just to set the league up. if you had any complaints, you easily could have looked at the league settings when you registered and voiced your complaints at the time, and i'm sure they could have been dealt with.

frankly, if there's just gonna be petty complaining and name calling 10 weeks after the fact, by all means... get a new commish. get two while you're at it. i'll stick to baseball.

apparently i have.

all i see is a lot of complaining about something that someone is doing for free and doesn't have to do, and that the complaints are all things that should and could have been addressed before the season began. which is pretty much BS.

so i'm not sure what point i'm missing, but okay.

You guys can only have fantasy drama in fantasy football, not real drama.

Obviously it's too late for this season. It had never been like that before this year (we'd had a lot of players, but not thirteen starters), and combined with more teams, it just didn't work. It couldn't have been addressed at the start of the season because nobody really knew how it would work out.

I just made a suggestion for next year, is all.

Playoff time in the league that matters
