Ok... Here's the situation. I am neither owner A nor owner B, both of whom (though) are in my division (just mentioning that in case you think I'm trying to alter competitive balance). Both of these guys are outstanding owners in the sim, each has way more champoinships than I do.
Last season, Owner A posted his keeper list. He had a useful backup OF in Lee Maye on it. The commish of the league eventually built the draft list for the league, and he INCLUDED Lee Maye on the available player list Nobody noticed this until late in the draft, when Owner B drafted Lee Maye at the very end of the draft, when he was making up a bunch of missed picks.
Because owner A had already entered his team, he wasn't watching the thread any longer when owner B drafted his player.
A few weeks into the season, owner A was playing owner B and noticed that Lee Maye was on the Owenr B's team... He called him out on this, and the whole situation was discovered.
At that time the commish made a decision... Both teams could keep Lee Maye this season, but the rights to him in future years went to Owner B, who drafted him in this years draft. The commish felt that the error was on the part of owner A for not catching the commish's mistake in posting the available players.
Admittedly, Lee Maye is NOT an important player. But precedents are important... I'd hate to have a similar situation with an important player.
Ok... here's the poll....
Who should get the rights to Lee Maye
(1) - Owner A, who drafted him originally, and listed him correctly as a keeper
(2) - Owner B, who drafted him last year after seeing him on the available player listing
Thanks for your input.
