Commissioner Corner Message Board
It has been brought to my attention that there may be a guy with two teams in one of my leagues. The only real evidence is similar activity in the draft (ie. leaving/entering the draft room at the same time, etc.), possibly having the same first name, and similar Yahoo! profiles (league names are hidden, unfortunately). So, really I have no solid proof.
Have you ever been in this situation, and how did you handle it?
Any feedback would be appreciated.
Well, if you're in public leagues, check if the two IDs' profiles and see if they were in the same leagues (this year and past years).
It happened to me once at I wrote a complaint to Yahoo! and I think they took over one of those teams (and renamed it "Yahoo! Hard Hitters") and blocked access for that guy with multiple teams...

Both Yahoo! fantasy profiles have the leagues and teams hidden. I can see size of leagues. And while there are some similarities, they aren't identical.
There is one guy in the league that is pretty adamant that this guy has two teams. He says he's in another league with him this year and it's the same deal.
Wow.. he must have been pretty speedy to leave and reenter the draft. Also, did he do that for 20 some odd rounds? If so that's pretty conclusive.
I've never had that happen.
Are the 2 teams in the same division?
If so, if he runs them fairly I wouldnt care. If he shows any hint of throwing games, Id boot him from BOTH teams.
Is it a free league or a pay league? If it's free it's less of a big deal. If it's pay, then surely he paid for both?
Just some thinking points.
Keep a close eye on these two teams, see if one team tries to "dump" to the other. Veto any obviously uneven trades and if the proof gets good enough, use your commish tools to lock them out. (After confronting this person and giving him a chance for explanation of course) Good luck with this touchy subject
