Your STUPID for joining a private league, when will you idiots ever learn...Yahoo tells you to join private leagues at your own risk, they have no control over what commish does....Do you know why, Because hes the commish, its his league, he can do what he wants...
Why do you think that is so terrible. I've been a commish a good dozen years and a lot of people have enjoyed playing in our leagues during that time and I enjoyed meeting a lot of new really nice people all over the world in all sports. We get to customize our leagues in the way we like,develop side games to go along with the great yahoo games and develop some nice friendships. Public leagues are a big risk for people that quit half way through the season,as you don't know who they are( not that you can't get dead teams in a private league, you can,but not as many). Anyway as a commish or a player I would choose a private league over a public any day of the week.. The big thing of course is to check the league settings and if it's not for you definitely find something you would enjoy to play. That's very important. The other thing is I wouldn't send money to strangers or get involved in any money leagues unless you absolutely know the commish as a friend. I have had people playing with me for a long time and still wouldn't start a money league even now. Not worth the trouble. Bragging rights are good by me! Feel badly the guy screwed you though for sure.

Yours is a great post. This was my first year in a Yahoo league, which began with 10 teams (roto). We wound up with six a two quit and two more were kicked out for alleged inactivity. I didn't always agree with my commissioner, but she ran an honest league and pulled no shades. In other words, she ran our league with integrity and she wound up in 3rd place just two points behind my championship E Street Seavers. I am looking to stay with her next yeat but seeking a second league, too, so if you get room let me know because you sound like someone who runs a league I would enjoy being a part of. Take Care.

I plan to bring these four leagues again in 2012 plus two more leagues with different settings/formats. The entry-fee for the old leagues will stay the same as they are in the spreadsheets, but the new leagues will have buy-ins in the $100-$150 range.
Anyone interested in getting a hold of me for next season: email@example.com. Only reply if interested in the real thing with real gamers.
P.S. All spam will either go straight to my spam folder or get filtered out as usual, so spammers pls don't waste your precious time. Thank you.
Excuse me???? I've been commissioning a PRIVATE league for 12 yrs and I have NEVER, NOT ONE TIME, cheated anyone out of one dime or one player. If you want to ask every player in the league if I am telling the truth I'll send you every one of their email addresses. Private leagues don't make bad leagues. Bad commissioners make bad leagues pal!
You make some good points but most commissioners run fair leagues. I ran two this year and have people making sure I reserve and expand slots for 2013 season. I plan to run four next year and they will be run clean. But I understand your point, and it is ashamed that so many people are scumbuckets.
