Has anyone ever tried this before? Topic

I have a real nice player who wants to test UFA. I am thinking of releasing him, and telling the league it was an accident, and then when I resign him (yes I know I would have to pay him the original salary and the 300K I would resign him for, but Im willing to do that and I budgeted for that).

After I release him, write on the league chat saying that it was an accident and then resign him. Everyone would probalby agree that I wouldnt be that dumb to release the guy and let me sign him and if anyone claims him, I can always write WIS and plead for them to correct it since I posted so quickly after dropping him.

Anyone ever have success with this?

I am then assuming that nobody else in your league knows about these forum posts?

I have two leagues so I doubt they would be able to figure out which one I am talking about.

How can you NOT consider this cheating?

I'm still confused.  What benefit are you getting out of this?

This thread is a joke, right?

I can only assume someone did this in hoggett's world and WifS "corrected" the situation.

Which means I'd have been a lot more verbose in opposing their intervention.

Caray just rolled so maybe it's that one.

OK I get it now.  Couple things:

A) How do you "release someone on accident?"  There's some work involved there.

B) Intelligent owners should look at the players patience rating.  If it's low, the answer is "**** you, that's bullshit."

No, "Tough ****, dumbass" would be the proper response to anyone claiming "It was an accident!!!"

I wouldn't play in a world that said "Oh, yeah, nobody would be that dumb.   Let him get his player back!!!!"

Spill the beans, hoggett.    I so hope it was plague as he said n00b-rape was a legit strategy.

Two whole leagues! This is going to be a tough one to figure out!

Pics or didn't happen, imo

Option D.  Wish I had two minutes of my life back and had never clicked on this thread.
