Buyers remorse doesn't fly in Fantasy. And then to encourage the rest to veto is just wrong in so many ways. But, play "vote" leagues, and with people like that, and you won't ever get a trade approved. The trade was fine.

So, Real Life since I am such an Idiot. I mentioned earlier that the Eagles have given up, not playing their 'optimal' football. They have given the Lions a Freebee and possible improved their playoff chances to the detriment to other wildcard teams that may surface. What should the NFL do about this?! This isn't chump change either, Chump!
And how about them totally skewing the Fantasy projections. I guess I should have known better but started their defense in one league. I looked for another,, better one just before game time but Expected them to play their best game. Murray screwed me two weeks in a row now! Who do I see about That? What should I do about it?
Suck It Up! And
Up! that's the game we play. Don't like it, don't play and don't come crying here.

Yes Commish has to be an Owner. He can have a Co-Owner to his second team and then leave all management of that team to the co owner and just run the league.

Whether I am playing for the Ship or the Toilet Bowl, as long as I am in the hunt I take the best players for that week and discard anyone, even 'studs' that won't serve my purpose for that week. Not a keeper so they do me no good this year.. just something to keep in mind. I still play to win.

Happens all the time. Sorry to hear. BUT, if he hasn't replaced you, you can still change your team name to something disgusting. He can't change that. An see if the emails of other members is available and tell them to beware. other than that..... just choose more wisely. If a Commish has a trophy case full of gold every year..No one is that good.

#1 lock his team Under Team Mgt.
#2 Put AP Back on His team and your player back on yours.
#3 Explain anyone who pulls that sort of #$%$ will receive the same
#4 Replace him..... if you can. (Not sure anyone wants to take on a losing team this late )
#5 If you can't replace him set his roster for the most proj points each week until the end of the season and then change his points to the lowest point total to eliminate him.
Or, you could lock him and gag him, set his lineup every week for him and show him how he should have played and that he Could have made it in the playoffs, then zero him out. But that's just me.

Generally, Waiver picks are kept week to week. They don't change every week depending on rank. If you use your pick every week you will be near the bottom most the time. The person who is 2nd probably saves Waivers pick and uses FA pickup most of the other time. Check you priority every week, not your ranking.

And now, thinking about it..... I had someone join and one of my House Rules was Always Be Active- ABC's. I trusted the "Activity" dates listed after the members names. I replaced a woman and her son who had joined and just hadn't been 'active' since the week before. And back then it tlike two weeks and tooth pulling to change Owners. Most said it couldn't be done but if you asked the right people...
Anyway, I replaced them and the next day she came on here and ripped me a new one... . I felt bad.
I learned to give everyone the benefit of the doubt before replacing them and giving them a wake up call before I do.

And further more.... I will pick up any player that has potential to kersplode that week whether I need a player in that position or not, just to keep someone else from getting them.... yup. And if those player were available and you or no one else bothered to take them..Your Loss!

Deadlines are deadlines. They did allow Commish's to change the scores if the points mattered. One of the few times I would have advocated do that. Maybe complain to the NFL for taking until the next weeks games have already begun to make corrections. Don't they have a deadline? There were options to correct this if a league decided to do so.

I used to run a strictly "Rookie League" for beginners. My 1st rule was "Beware of the Commish!" Rule 2 was "All Coaches Lie Like Dogs!" And then I would explain common terms and strategies and tactics.... etc. . I would invite the best of my Rookie League to my Pro League. Most of those are now kickin my ask! They never left!! I can't get rid of them! Like house guests who have over stayed their stay! LOL They don't ever come here but they all know they are all welcome back. And just because I taught them everything They Know...I didn't teach them everything I Know! We have all taken our turn as Captain of the Ship. Funny how that works. Well at least most of us.
It's all good man!
