Commissioner Corner Message Board
This commish kicked me out on the last day of the league I assume I won over him in the finals. Lets make a list of this scumbags and I am going to file internet fraud charges against him.
My commish was firstname.lastname@example.org another email he uses is email@example.com
one thing to find a good commish is to check posts from that individual. rip-off artists are usually just active at the beginning of seasons on the board, then hide.
good commish's will post all year

Just saw this by coincidence...
And felt like I needed to post because actually I don't entirely agree with what you just said that good commissioners post all year while rip-off artists do so only during spring training. I do agree there are plenty of scammers online, though, so we all have to pay attention when choosing a league and a commish.
In my case I run several fantasy baseball money leagues but normally I only stop by these message boards during the spring just about a month to 40-50 days prior to the start of the season looking to fill the few empty spots that may come up; or hoping to find folks for an entirely new league. After the long baseball season I normally chill – only sporadically stopping by here - until next spring training rolls around since more often than not I skip the fantasy football season altogether to spend time with my family. But don’t get me wrong I do love football too and plan to someday put together football leagues that will compare to what I’m doing with my baseball leagues.
I take my baseball prize leagues very seriously, though - to the extent of designing fancy itemized spreadsheets with all the finances and the most relevant stats for the year. I am currently working 24-7 to put online a website for the leagues. Check out my spreadsheets in dropbox (copy paste the links below to your browser) to get a slight idea of what I'm doing. That is just the tip of the iceberg. Everyone's invited to my leagues as long as they have a valid yahoo email address and a LeagueSafe account because the money pot is safely kept there all season and disbursing is also done through LS.
$30 H2H league
$50 roto league
$75 h2h league
$75 roto league
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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S. All spam will either go straight into my spam folder or get filtered out as usual, so spammers pls don't waste your precious time. Thank you.

So let me get this straight, you are filing complaints for being ripped off of money for illegal online sports gambling/betting that you willingly participated in with an organization that you really know nothing about except for what they claim online to be.
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...

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.
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!
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.
