Default Am I wrong in being upset by this?

So in our league we've just hit the playoff mark. 10 team league, 4 make the playoffs, 4 make the consolation bracket and the bottom 2 are just done.

I tried pick up a defense for this week as I'm in the playoffs, but found out today that someone scooped them up before me, and it was one of the 2 teams that are entirely out of any kind of playoffs, they have 0 games left.

As the commissioner I feel I should be able to drop that defense from his team and put them back on waivers but my friend (and the team I'm playing this week) said that would be abusing my power.

What do you guys think?

Defiantly abusing your power.

But the guy that picked up the defense is roomates with the guy i'm playing. If he realizes I need a defense what's stopping him from picking up the 10 best available just to mess me up.

In my opinion, if you're not even in a game anymore, there's no reason to make any moves

Dick move by him, but would be a dick move by you to reverse it, especially as a commish.

Just make it a rule next year, that any team out of playoffs cannot make moves. Can't change it now, though

I'm not going to change it as that one guy has a problem with it, but I'm certainly annoyed and especially since I don't know the guy and he's roomates with the guy i'm playing.

smells fishy to me.

If there was some "for last place" game he was in I'd understand making a move, but he doesn't even have a game listed, he won't even get a score for this week

No you should not be upset by this. It actually irks me that people like you would pull out the Im the commissioner and I need the defense more than him argument. Ive heard it many times and Im glad Im not in a league with people like you

Everything is up to league vote and I would be more than happy to do the same for someone else who lost a pickup due to that player being picked up by someone with no games left, not even a consolation game.

And actually, I do need the defense more than him, since HE HAS NO GAMES LEFT! If someone else that still had a playoff game or consolation game picked them up I'd have no issues at all with that, but being someone out of the picture is kind of strange.

This guy made 4 moves all year, finished last in the league, for many weeks didn't even change his team when he had players on bye, and now when his team is completely done, he stars making moves? Quite strange

You keep making the same speach. Each time you have been told your wrong.

Shall you post it again?

I'm just not sure people understand, because the one guy said "I need the defense more than him"

So then let's start a different approach.

What purpose is there for him to make a move?

Ok, so I've already said I'm not going to change it because I'd need everyone in the league to agree with it. So that's out of the picture, so to the original question, apparently I'm not wrong in being upset by it

I don't think you're wrong for being upset about it no doubt about that I just think (like suggested earlier) anything you would do without league's approval would be overstepping your bounds.

Oh I agree and I wouldn't do anything without the leagues approval!

That being said, if I was first one Waivers and this guy dropped his best player at this point, I guarantee the league would not be happy if I picked that guy up
