Commissioner Corner Message Board
Any advice on this would be appreciated.
I have been running our family league for 3 years and this is our first questionable issue.
One 11 yr old in his 2nd year of playing (first year of solo management), dropped Willis McGahee (owned 93%) and picked up Ronnie Hillman (owned 10%). I am inclined to believe this is an inadvertant/inexperienced move.
Shortly after that drop, the #1 ranked manager (adult) picked up McGahee and thinks that he should be able to retain him regardless of inadvertant drop or not.
Thoughts on how I should administer this issue?
Its Like stealing candy from a baby. Literally. I would suggest that the "adult" should grow up but If the "adult" is adamant about acting like a child you have to let it stand
Players that are dropped should go to waivers not FA
The kid dropped him. No way can you give him back especially after someone else picked him up. This should be a valuable learning experience. Do you think next year when he joins a league with his friends, will they let him get a player back after he dropped? Hell no they wont. Follow the rules, you are the commish. You are also over stepping your role as commish. Your job is make sure rules are followed. Right now no rules have been broken. You would be the one breaking the rules if you change anything.
