Is This Speaking On Someone's Behalf?

Postby turcorox911 » Wed May 09, 2018 1:41 pm

So long story short, in my fantasy football league, a rule was written in such a way that I and at least two other people interpreted it differently from the way the commissioner intended it to be read. I wrote an email to the commissioner saying "Since I and at least two other people interpreted this rule differently, I thought I would explain how I am reading it." However, he got very angry (extremely short temper) and told me that I do not speak for other people, so I should not presume to.



I did not name the people who interpreted it differently, and specifically chose not to reveal their names. Also, I know they saw it my way because we all had discussions about it.



Given this set of facts, have I actually spoken on anyone's behalf?

For REAL

KITTLE, Waller, Akins, H Bryant

Not listing my IDP, but they matter as much as offense in this league. The Bosa Bros, D-Buck, and Cam Jordan are my main studs.

TEAM B - 32 teams, double copy - TEs get 1.5x bump in scoring
LAMAR, Rivers, Cousins, Darnold, J Love, Brissett

Danielle Hunter, Aaron Donald, and Chris Jones are the cornerstones of my IDP squad. LBs and DBs are rag tag for now.

Did this Coogan guy get banned? If so, then I think I joined after that. Still need help understanding what the issue was with him.

Well, I'm not sure if he was banned or if he left on his own. Anyway, in short, he did things like the example in your post. He allegedly also ripped some owners off by collecting league fees and then cancelling league if I'm not mistaken. He also knew more than most and wasn't afraid of stiring the pot, starting arguments, was rude and condescending, being over the top with his takes, and he frequently used the forum as a way to advertise for his own personal gain. The list could go on, but, you prob get the idea.

To your question; Seems to me that perhaps you and your commissioner aren't very close. Maybe you've butted heads before and you have a less than friendly relationship. Or on the other side, maybe he/she was just having a bad day.

Damn, that sucks about Coogan. I obviously don't like people like that.

And as for me and the Commish, not that close at all, have butted heads before, and he was going through a divorce at the time too. I guess I could have been nicer, but I honestly thought that I was already being nice enough, lol.
