My tickets, too, had always been handled in a timely manner... sometimes quickly, sometimes less so, but never to the point that left me going, WTF??? As MikeT said, the "do this" tickets as a commish are dealt with almost immediately.
OK, I'll post the player, Mike, but don't laugh! It's a team I picked up that had been trashed, winning 38 games the previous season... And that might explain why I worried about a demotion penalty for Esteban Sanchez
. He's just 26.
FWIW, the ticket was not aggressive and it listed/lists the transactions times:
12/28/2012 7:33 PM jsturgis5866 Ice Lakers Andrea Lawrence P 26 Placed on DL
12/28/2012 7:33 PM jsturgis5866 Ice Lakers Esteban Sanchez P 26 Promoted
1/4/2013 7:25 PM jsturgis5866 Ice Lakers Andrea Lawrence P 26 Activated from DL
1/4/2013 7:25 PM jsturgis5866 Ice Lakers Esteban Sanchez P 26 Demoted
The only slight variance from a routine promotion/demotion was that Sanchez had to pass waivers first. But I've done that many times (inc. the second time this season for Sanchez) and never had a penalty incurred.
