I played in a baseball league last year where the manager cheated since day 1, changed the draft time, locked all teams, etc. I understand it may require manual intervention not available to review reported leagues, so what if instead you enable an option where a manager can vote for a manager cheating and if half of the managers vote it will automatically delete the league or if not at least not count results in the manager profiles. Best!

I have a manager who changes the scoring settings to his benefit. Never responds to comments.

League ID # 29401 has a commish that is cheating one hour after the draft. Changing categories for scoring. No "W" for pitchers than changes to "W" is scoring. No response back from him. Now he is trading and changed to no feedback or vote from other managers on trades. Changed scoring too. I would drop this league, but am not smart enough to figure out how to drop. If not, I will just bench all my players from day one. His pitching staff has 11 players that are owned by 80% or more. I don't like cheaters.

I joined a private league, looked at the setting prior to the draft and everything looked good. After the draft, the commish deleted the first 2 drafts, held a 3rd draft, drafting for all four teams, his team drafting all the blue chip players, then changed settings to no changes and made it a keeper league. Adding a feedback rating would help when looking to join a private league. Have sent several emails to him, but he doesn't respond.
I was in a league last year baseball- World Series Champions- all my players were cut off my team. This year AUTO-RENEWED- cannot make a comment on the board. THIS COMMISSIONER is supposedly operating multiple teams. IF MT TEAM IS RENEWED NEXT YEAR I will have no choice but to cancel my account and lose all my records. PLEASE EXPEL THIS JERK.
Great idea or at least allow teams to opt out individually.
Having commissioner issues in a Public League now, heading into 2019 season. Commish made major scoring changes just a couple hours before draft and when 3 teams asked why the changes were made, we were all locked and/or blocked from performing line up changes, all transactions and message board posting. Tom says yahoo can do nothing for a private league does that mean something can be done for a Public league or no? Tom is right, though, yahoo should have something in place for these issues.
It's a small issue compared to reality of day to day real-life problems but I don't like idea of my Rating & Levels taking a negative hit. I gotta grab bragging rights when I can from my friends, hahahaa

Had same issue this year and finally got out of the league yesterday. The commissioner was changing managers daily, changing the rules 2 weeks in, and definitely had several teams under different accounts. He even offered me one-sided deals to shut me up once I complained and exposed it. Wish there was a way to report this or at the least invalidate the league results so people could quit without feeling bad.
I am now in another league where the commish is a cheater,#23459, locked out of everything as of this morning,may 8th,all of us,of course the commish is now picking themselves one **** of a roster.I dont see why Yahoo can not even go to these now 2 leagues and look at whats going on and shut them down? I will think hard about signing up in any other sports and will let my friends know also.
No comments on this?,I know it happens in all sports on yahoo,this is the 3rd sport and time it has happened to me.This is out and out cheating,you can not email the commish or any other owners,post no comments.Yet he is of course leading the league and his Bio will show he won a league, easy way to pad your stats..
I am in a league where the Commish has locked everyone out but him and another player,I think anyway,#2338 a baseball league.The person has cheated from draft day on. Look at all the trades,look when he locked a whole league out.This kind of thing can be avoided by being able to leave a league and players like this would not be able to get their kicks.I mean we can not even get any players you are stuck with who you drafted cause this person wants to think he is the greatest team builder in fantasy sports.i just see that their are ways to not feed egos like this persons If you had a way to leave leagues.At least look at people complaing about leagues like this by going to the league,checking out the problem and either ending the league or kicking the commish out, do something... we cant even contact the commish,anyone in the league, pickup players or drop players,cant post any comments, nothing..... not right people thanks
