Does anyone know how to report a cheating commissioner. In League ID #49173, the Commissioner has: 1. Changed the waiver priority immediately before the draft and granted himself the #1 pick; 2. After the draft, changed the approval of trades from league votes to Commissioner; 3. AFTER the draft, changed the stats categories AND increased the number of pitching categories so that in this Head to Head Categories league, pitching now outweighs batting (and, of course, his draft leaned heavily towards pitching); also he did away with the standard categories such as wins and replaced them with quality starts and net saves and other obtuse categories. Any team that drafted with an expectation of stats categories was badly mislead; and 4. Changed my active and bench roster without my approval of knowledge. I am not the only person who is very unhappy, but the league is still functioning and this person is still Commissioner. I'd just like out, but you can't get out.
I've had this happen to me before and it sucks and there is really nothing you can do about it. What I did is just set my lineup at the beginning of the year and just ignored that league for the rest of the year. That's really all you can do unless you still wanna try and beat the cheater.

Thanks for the messages - I haven't played Yahoo for very long (2011 and 2012), but I have a fairly good record. I have several other teams, so I guess I'll just have one really ugly one (I actually have a very good team - if the league were administered fairly).
I've been playing ESPN since the 90's and never had anything like this happen (public or private league). Sometimes there has been collusion, but no one ever changed the rules unilaterally AFTER the draft. I may abandon Yahoo because they turn a blind eye to this sort of obscene cheating.
