    League Rules

    It is not a dirty play because the owner didn't actually affect the availability status of the waiver wire players. His intent was to try and help his team win by a method that you deem as unsportsmanlike BUT banishment? I completely disagree with banishment, talk to him and let him know that you think it is not something you would do and think it is underhanded and ask that it not be done again, NOT BANISHMENT. Only banish for real cheating.

    Peyton Manning sucks

    Denver WR sucked too not just the QB. Using your analysis you shouldn't draft WR on good teams either because their QB is going to suck at this time of the season. As a matter of fact in the draft analysis that we all get it mentions players that are on most of the championship teams from last year and Manning has been on that list for as many years as I can remember. I have examples of both teams with good QBs and teams with not so good QBs and generally the teams with good QBs do better. My two championship teams from last year had Manning and Brady.

    Playoffs

    Head to head is not a tie breaker. At 8-6 I assume you are fighting for a wild card, thus it is season points scored by your team. If you happen to be fighting for a division title then it is division record.

    Victory Formation Loss of Yards

    Yes it counts. Check this out. Two years ago a guy posted about a Jet game. He was winning his match up by one tenth of a point. the Jets were winning their game on Monday night and Sanchez took a knee losing one tenth of a point for a tie. There were only 15 seconds left on the clock and the other team only had one time out left and it was only 2nd down well the team took their time out for what seemed silly because they couldn't stop the clock again, well Sanchez took another knee losing another yard or one tenth of a point for this guy and he lost his match up by one tenth of a point. I felt for the guy but at the same time I had to laugh.

    Intentional Tie to Ensure Playoff Birth

    Sounds like collusion to me. If I'm commish I make them play it out but I don't lock them out. If I'm just an owner then I mention it to the commish, if the commish is one of them then you are out of luck in custom leagues.

    If they conversed about doing this then it is collusion regardless of the fact they are winning teams.

    Baloney. D. Thomas was a 1st rounder in many drafts, but a dud this this last week and Peyton was a 2nd rounder in many leagues this year and was also a dud so which is worse, THE 1ST ROUNDER OBVIOUSLY. The original poster was commenting on Peyton sucking "THIS WEEK" not any other week. It was pure luck that Peyton had a bad week "THIS WEEK" and not a different week. If you had D. Thomas, E. Sanders instead of Green and Jordy then you lose, you can't justify your strategy just because you won this week. Shoot I am in the divisional round in 7 out of 8 leagues and I try extremely hard to get a top notch QB. IMO your strategy can work but it can also fail, I have examples of both with neither have a distinct advantage. As I said, both of my 2013 championship teams had Manning and Brady.

    Can't diss my argument so diss me, if my "baloney" comment hurt your feelings then I apologize, it was only meant to disagree not infuriate, sorry. That does NOT validate your position because you diss me, though. All I have done here is disagree with your "RIGID" beliefs that drafting QBs in early rounds doesn't work. It does, I'm proof that it works. I'm not saying that drafting QBs early always works either, I'm also proof of that. Fantasy football is a little more complex than that. I'll tell you what, if you win 1st place in every single league then I'll believe you but until you can prove that then I'll go with the best player available in early rounds of a draft and not shy away from QBs due to your strategy which in my opinion has the obvious flaws especially since I've given examples how it works with Manning, shoot I have three teams in the divisional round of the playoffs right now that have Manning. Now before you get all upset again, I'm not saying your strategy doesn't work for you in general and that you are not a good player, I'm sure you are. I'd put activity then knowledge then system in that order as priorities for winning. Most of my teams are in the playoffs because I have "picked up" players like Mason, Bount, Jackson, Landry not because of who I drafted in the 1st round.

    LOL, fraudulent is described as dishonest or cheating for gain. They gained something, maybe not a better player but they both "gained" a playoff spot. They didn't cheat their opponent but they did cheat the rest of the league. There are many ways to cheat at this game and limiting it to trading players seems way to narrow. Collusion is a conspiracy, meaning more than one person attempting to limit competition, which is what they are doing. This is black and white not the gray you seem to think it is.

    That is the exact definition of collusion, attempting to limit competition through gaining an unfair advantage.

    NO, according to the definitions of collusion and fraudulent they were clearly doing both. Gulity and Gullty

    That example is not even close to the original poster's example.
    First of all, you are guessing that someone might want that player, for your sake hope you are correct or it is simply a bad move. I'll let you do that all day long, it is not cheating. Can't justify gray with two completely different examples.

    Hope their plan is to improve it. That is terrible, I'll never use it. I posted some and it said it was for the whole league but when I looked for it I couldn't find it. TERRIBLE

    Change Waiver Priority for the Playoffs...

    If I'm playing for 3rd and I have an IR guy on my roster and I was #1 waiver position and they took it away from me and it cost me a 3rd place trophy, I'd be really upset especially if I worked the waiver wire carefully to put myself in this position. That move might be the very thing that wins it for me, no way I give it up.

    Another point - I know keeper leagues where the 7th place or consolation bracket winner gets first draft slot next year. Thus 7th place becomes important and so does that win.

    You can join custom winners leagues too. The commissioner will post that it is a winners league and must review each owner to ensure they have a championship, if not they get booted prior to draft time . You can create your own winners league too per the previous explanation.

    trophy?

    by Neal Dec 24, 2014 10:56 AM
    Kerry Kerry Dec 24, 2014 11:23 AM Flag

    May have to wait until week 17 stat corrections. Some leagues have a championship game on week 17 and in baseball I noticed that I had to wait until all leagues were completed before I got my trophy in leagues that finished early. This way Yahoo can run the program for all leagues and issue all trophies at one time instead of spending the time figuring out which leagues finished week 15, 16, or 17. Guess we'll find out on Thursday and congrats on your championship.
