Honestly, this is one of the worst things I have seen in HBD in a long, long time.  Your account should be banned without delay.

CS went over and above normal protocol to help you and you turned around and fucked your entire world.  I am sorry but apologies are just not enough in some cases.  Good riddance.

Yeah, the more that surfaces, the worse it gets.   sculley tried to screw up the team, half-heartedly IMO, but the mess he created could be handled(and was) by the 31 other owners.  greeny has created a situation that can't be resolved in-house.    It's not a disaster but that team will be playing 5 card draw with 4 cards for a few seasons.

Seriously, stop posting.    Regardless of your intentions, your hissyfit was designed to do as much damage to a team's future as possible.  You aren't going to find much sympathy around here because EVERYONE would think ANYONE who did what you did in their world is a dick. 
Word.

Nice thread rename - enjoy some other site - boot coming soon.

See! And everyone thought I was the biggest dick just because I didn't like WiS anymore. I never pulled a stunt like this. Say what you will about my posts, I have never done anything even close to trying to screw a team up, let alone an entire world. All I ever tried to do was discuss things with these people (most of which are sociopaths). Just wow.

If WifS wanted to regain some of the lost consumer confidence, they could do a couple things WRT this situation.

A.  Strip greeny of his teams immediately.   This thread is a signed confession of a situation every world hopes to avoid. 
B.  Acknowledge that this is a problem that they will address.   They could implement something like this:
   1.  Players will not sign a deal that takes them past the age of 39.
   2.  Players 39 or older will only sign 1 year deals.
   3.  Players will not sign for more than their demands once FA ends. 

Barring that, just say something.   If they are truly following the forums, they know this thread exists and that it's the most "popular" HBD thread going right now.

Wow, just wow. Worst thing I've seen on HBD. Intentions in this case are irrevelant. Just no excuse for what greeny did.

And +1... 
"A.  Strip greeny of his teams immediately.   This thread is a signed confession of a situation every world hopes to avoid.

Good idea Mike.

On the other hand, I'd boot him in heartbeat.  I believe people prone to hissyfits will throw more hissyfits.  I wouldn't want him in one of my worlds when the next one comes. 

But we didn't share a mother.

i may have shared their mother with someone

Some good news: I got CS to undo the three contract extensions, which were the majority of the damage that greeny had done.  This takes $87.8m of future payroll off the books.  Still trying to get them to address the five FA signings, which were not nearly as bad (relatively speaking) but would be good to also get undone or at least reduced.

Future payroll for Albuquerque now looks like:

Payroll Budget Old * New *
Season 22 $94,600,000 $90,142,284 $90,142,284
Season 23 $72,000,000 $60,478,000 $60,478,000
Season 24 $63,000,000 $40,312,500 $40,312,500
Season 25 $54,000,000 $29,500,000 $29,500,000
Season 26 $45,000,000 $21,500,000 $21,500,000

What I don't understand is if he was so unhappy with the contract why didn't he just leave the league at the end if the season. 25 bucks down but a lesson learned to check commited payrol and contracts.

More good news: CS reduced the five FA signings from 9/17 down to one-season deals.  This takes an additional $57.2m of future payroll off the books.  I think CS has been very coopoerative in undoing the damage that greeny had done.

Future payroll for Albuquerque now looks like:

Payroll Budget Old * New *
Season 22 $94,600,000 $90,142,284 $90,142,284
Season 23 $72,000,000 $49,778,000 $49,778,000
Season 24 $63,000,000 $24,812,500 $24,812,500
Season 25 $54,000,000 $13,000,000 $13,000,000
Season 26 $45,000,000 $7,000,000 $7,000,000
* Includes Player Payroll Offered in Negotiations.

good on cs. this is the type of situation that needs action by them, not what greenies was ******** about
9/20/2011 2:06 PM
Alternatively, CS could have subtracted $25 from the account on file for greeny each season until the contracts ran out.  That would have been fun.

I don't think the "apparently" is needed in the title...
