    I Quit !!!

     

    Going into my season as commissioner of my hometown league, I just handed over the reins to my trusty co-commissioner. The reason: I'm totally burnt out with dealing with people who in "real life" are good, responsible people...but when playing this game act like 6 year olds who are unwilling to be the least bit responsible for even small tasks...such as replying to trade proposals. Just curious...do any of you find that being commissioner is akin to trying to "herd cats"? Anyone who has passed off the duty to someone else...or are considering it? Forgive me, but just needing to vent!

    • Quitting is always the answer (sarc)

      "people who in "real life" are good, responsible people"
      let the above soak in

      "but when playing this game act like 6 year olds who are unwilling to be the least bit responsible for even small tasks such as replying to trade proposals"
      adults not taking a game seriously stop the presses what are they doing going to work trying to raise their children b4 setting a line up in a free fantasy football league the HORROR

      aside from replying this is a bs trade (as many are even if theyre just feelers)
      why would they bother "replying" to a trade proposals when you would just accuse them of cheating if you perceived some one got an advantage (I wish this was sarc)

      "do any of you find that being commissioner is akin to trying to "herd cats"?"
      no most "GOOD" commishes allow their members to run their own damn team (for better or worse)
      let the above soak in

      If theyre absent owners you replace them

      "Just hearing from everyone regarding an acceptable draft date/time...and who would bring what food...took endless e-mails,"
      OMG do people really have lives outside of FFB

      you stepping down may be the best thing to ever happen to your league(IMHO)
