I've heard this before but I never understood it. Can you explain?

bush started, but couldn't remember to finish, the old saying, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

I think Buck just wants the plaque Yahoo sends out. He did pay the $120+ for the league. If you didn't pitch in to help pay for the league, you really have no right to complain.

Well he wasted his money on the league it sounds like. There is a feedback page someone posted about how to switch managers if one becomes inactive, but there was a spot for complaining of cheating and such. If someone else knows about this they can help you out. ;-D

I've been in leagues like this. They are the reason I ONLY play either site-commisionwed leagues or cafe-memmber leagues now. I don't trust random people to have a good competetive time with anymore.

You lost time, but at least not money. I understand that Yahoo has so much to worry about that of course they won't fix this, but good that you at least tried. Just forget about the league and move on. I had the same situation and I promise you, absolutely guarantee, it will be much better if you never enter the league again. If you click on your team you will always feel an urge to try and win anyways, try to pos about how hes a cheater, etc... Just quit the league, don't look back, and never enter it again.

PS: He didn't get ARod from you because ARod is on the Cant Cut list so he could not drop him and pick him up I believe.
Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Ya, I dont plan to do much to the team, I set my main lineup and I wont go in and change it. Basically the only reason I got back in there now is to see all the negative things people say about the commissioner in the "smalk talk" feature of Yahoo, which the commissioner cant block. And to see what kinda crap the commissioner is talking in the forum which he is the only one that can post. We will let him have his fun, basically cause we dont have any choice, (i know one guy that got fed up with him and got his email address and submitted it to alot of gay porn sites! :-D )

I took all the teams, and created a separate league in Yahoo and entered the results manually so everyone could get their team back, so we all focus on that league now, sucks that scoring starts in week 4, (especially since i would have had a nice lead on first place), but its a long season, and better than not playing at all.

And the reason he didnt take A-rod from me is there isnt a reason, he changed the Cant Cut list to None, so he can have any player he wants. He only took andruw back from me, cause I pretty much screwed him over in a trade to get him in the first place, that and andruw started tearing it up with home runs.

All in all, this is my first bad experience with cheating in a Yahoo league out of the many years I have been playing, and it will forever taint my point of view on playing yahoo unless some serious changes are made in the way commissioners can exersize their power.
