Looks like Tibs really did quit this league.

Tibs put my PM onto the open forum, but you don't know why I was angry with him.  Since he's tossing it out here, I'll add in the missing information.  Tibs has a habit of quitting fantasy sports leagues mid-season.  A lot of the time it's unfair to others and messes up the league for everyone.  So it has become a sore subject.

That's all it was.

This isn't a head-to-head game, so it doesn't mess up the schedule.  But I still can't agree with rules changes for the week after everyone else has submitted a roster.  This is Week 17, and the rules description has been put up here every single week.  We've always been casual about rule changes, but this time it was not playing fair.

I will throw in a couple couple cents. Not sure why. I guess I would like to see everyone here having fun with this. And I see both sides of the situation. So maybe my input could help.

I see BC's side like this. You have no doubt put a shit ton of effort into this fantasy game. And I understand that when you put all the work you have into it, and then something comes along that doesn't fit into the schematics, it's gonna piss you off a little. I certainly can understand that. (Also, thanks for the effort BC)

I see Tibs side like this. It's ultimately a grey area when discussing the rules of the game. The rules didn't say you could do it. But they also didn't say you couldn't either. Them damned Hendrick boys do this type of thing all the time. (Of coarse I don't like them Hendrick boys so I think they are cheaters! HA! Grin)

I think if I were running things I would handle it like this. I would give Tibs his points for last week. He should have earned it for thinking outside the box.  Wink Then for the future I would say not to do it again. Unless of coarse all players decide we want to add that as an option. But everyone should agree.

On the other part. I have no room to talk about anyone quitting on the league, Last year I did the same thing halfway through the year. I just got busy during the summer. I also didn't want to be jumping in and out so I just stayed out. I understand things happen and you can't always play. So I wouldn't get mad at anyone for leaving a league. Even if it was a head to head league. All fantasy games are all about fun. And if the fun stops, so do the games. And that happens no matter what stops the fun. Whether it be the rules of the game or real life just getting in the way.

BC - You know Tibs didn't do it to piss you off. So I think you may have over reacted a bit. You could have handled things a little better. Again, if nothing else you have to give him points for trying!   Cool

Tibs - You know BC has worked hard to try and make this fun for all. You of all people should now know how hard it is to run things. A web site or a fantasy game. Get your ass back in here!  Kiss

Sorry, Earl.  The rules were specific.

"Here is what your roster will look like:

Your Drafted Driver Number 1
Your Drafted Driver Number 2
Your Drafted Driver Number 3
A Driver Chosen From the Undrafted Drivers List
A Driver Chosen From the Undrafted Drivers List

For a total of 5 drivers on your roster."

No grey area there.  But I've never had problems with rules changes.  Just not after everyone else has submitted their rosters.

The other option would be to make the rules suggestions, not rules.

As for how I handled it, I talked to Tibs privately.

OK, we have a rain delay on the race, but it should be about to start.

I'll put in the rosters grid as it stands now (but you still have time to change your rosters before the green flag start).  I'll put Tibs' roster in as a roll-over from last week.

I guess all opinions that are going to be voiced are voiced.  Decide how you want it to go down, and I'll score it by the vote of the majority, as usual.





Here Are Your Week 17 Rosters for KANSAS!!


Key, in Alphabetical Order

805raiderslo – Blown Tires & Engine Fires!
