Joined a league this year I found through these forums. As it’s wrapping up the keeper rule is coming under scrutiny. I’ve copy and pasted the rule verbatim below:
Each team can keep up to 3 players , any player drafted after round 2 can be keep. All 1st and 2nd round drafted will be placed back in draft pool each each. Any player keep cost a 2 round ahead where they were drafted the year before. Any undrafted player keep cost a 10 round pick. Keepers can only be kept max 3 years. Any dropped player can not be kept.
Here’s the issue: I want to keep robert woods who I traded for. The commissioner is now saying that we can only keep players that we ourselves drafted and the rules forbid keeping traded players. I see nothing in the rules that says that, and considered his keeper value when I traded for him. He is claiming that this was always the case and that he explained it to a few managers who inquired about it back in september, and if I don’t like it I should just leave the league.
What do you guys think? Am I in the wrong here? I think if it’s an official rule he should be obligated to post it and it’s not my responsibility to read into his subtext or inquire about every possible eventuality. Should I stay or should I go?
