I got frustrated with my pay league rules and let it get in my head to the point I lost interest.
Allow me to whine for a moment.
In my pay league I had the highest scoring team with the best record. The commish of the league started 0-6 , then got a couple wins..and then started pushing a couple of the newer players for trades. They werent out and out scams, but they were bad deals and a couple of us objected but the league doesnt have anything in place for that, unlike most where there is a comment period. So..a couple dodgy trades later he has 4 players who would be 1st rounders.... and starts making his run.
But it shouldnt matter.. he finishes in 8th place in the 12 team league. BUT WAIT! last offseason when no one was looking he changed the playoffs to 8 teams out of 12...no BYE for the top 2 teams.
So..I dont get a bye and play him the first week. A couple of my players do worse than normal so I "only" had 110 points or so (I averaged 123 a week for the season).. with his ill begotten players he ends up with 119 points and I lose.
No out and out cheating but it left a really bad taste in my mouth... ALready told him I wont be in the league next year without major rule changes.
