Debate in our league that I would love your input on. 1st place seed is planning on tanking against the 6th place manager to guarantee that the 7th place manager does not make playoffs.
His argument: "it’s strategy, why wouldn’t I want to control who I play? I’ve lost to the 7th place manager twice this season and he has my number so I don’t want him in the playoffs
My argument: it goes against the spirit of the game and is unfair for the 7th place manager who may have won 3 games in a row to put himself in playoff contention only to find out that his playoff hopes are controlled by the 1st seed rather than by luck or skill.
with that said, I told the league I’m ok with it IF majority thinks its fair game but with some provisions. Only one I can think of is below.
- You must fill an entire active roster (players on IR or ruled out do not count) with the exception of the DEF or Kicker roster spot. Only 1 can be left empty not both.
any thoughts on additional provisions/rules to put in place for next year and what are your thoughts on this entire scenario?
