you know what chris, there are a lot of stupid managers like you who doesn't learn. Every year, BS happens like these. The problem is, you don't read on the message boards so that you can learn things how to prevent things from happening like the one you just experienced. 1st things 1st, dont join a private league if you don't know the commish. Of course, most of the time, you don't know the commish. If in case you really don't know the commish, check his trophy profile. If he won the championship in leagues which he is the commish, that's one BS sign. If the guy doesn't have a league that's been running for more than 2 years, chances are, that's just a one time league which he could screw it up before the end of the season. One of the main problem of private leagues is you'll never know how many teams one manager has in that league. That's why BS trades happen most of the time and no one can veto it coz the commish set the trade rules according to his liking.
