    fellow fantasy ballers in the Empire Strikes Back League 


    (click to make bigger)

    we have a Commissioner who appears to be running two teams, both his own team Death Valley Demons, and a second team that shares a name with the league that he created, The Evil Empire.

    He has been caught adjusting the Waiver order to better serve his two teams, he has deleted all the conversations on the Public Message board where he outted himself by posting as one team and then (like the jackass he is) mere minutes later with his second team, and now he has blocked me from posting on the message board and from emailing you.

    because i knew he would do this (he is very slow) i emailed you all yesterday before he got around to banning me, so that you would come here and see some of the proof.

    Above you will see what he will have you believe are coincidences. Coincidences that two managers in the wee hours of the morning posted minutes apart from each other. But its no coincidence that now those posts are deleted. Infact all the posts are now deleted on our message board. What does that tell you? It should tell you that hes hiding something he doesnt want you to see.

    Well unfortunately for this jackass you cant delete your history on Yahoo. So lets see what The Evil Empire – yahoo id# ericdraven_1986 and Death Valley Demons – yahoo id# the_crow_will_rise have done on Yahoo Fantasy over the years…

    The first thing you should notice by clicking on their profiles is theyve “both” been playing Yahoo for just two years now, starting in 2006, and whattya know they both started with fantasy football, and lookee here, they both played in leagues with 12 teams. And surprise surprise, the league our commish was commish of… he won. Pretty hard to lose when you’re a) the commish and b) playing with an extra team.

    But 12 team leagues are pretty standard. The most damning thing about this guy’s history is when baseball season of last year came around.

    Somehow “both” of these guys (Evil Empire and Death Valley Demons) ended up in a 6-man league. Now its very rare to wind up in a six man leagues. basically theyre a joke. theres no competition, theres no fun, everyone ends up in the playoffs. Basically theyre what happens when newbie, sloppy, lame commishes dont get it together and get the word out there that they have a league and instead of 12 to 20 people showing up, only 6 can get scrounged up and the Live Draft happens before the commish can delete the league or reschedule the draft for a later date.

    Sure enough, Evil Empire was the commish of that 6-man league and he won and Coincidences of Coincidences several other user accounts in our league were also in that league

    the_crow_will_rise (Death Valley Demons)came in first place
    glap68 (mets) came in third place
    combatready11 (prowlers) came in fifth place
    ericdraven_1986 (The Evil Empire) came in last place

    winning a league where you have almost all the teams is fun if youre an amateur cheater, so this year he decided to try that technique in a 20 team league and bring along four of his aliases. and to be honest, who knows if he has more than four? but we know he has at least the Evil Empire. and we know hes a bad liar, and we can conclude that his penis is probably the size of a wart.

    those things are neither here nor there. however it is interesting to see that there are other players in our league who were also in a 6 man league, and NONE of them finished in the same position – coincidence? or does the commish actually have more than 2 teams in our league?

    btw, commish i can beat you even if you had four teams. just dont cheat by stockpiling your players all on one team thru shady trades and bogus Waiver tampering, like youre trying to set up.

    for the sake of argument, im willing i was willing to believe that it is just a weird fucking coincidence that four of the GMs in our league ALL found themselves in 6-man leagues last year and all finished in different slots. thats how generous i am. and thats how sure i am that bro has at least two teams, as he proved when he deleted all the posts and blocked me from saying more.

    this is the deal i tried to arrange with him privately, but since he refuses to act like a man, this is the deal i will ask you to demand from him.

    1. stop playing one of your teams. probably the best to stop playin is Evil Empire since the commish’s official team is sorta neccessary.

    2. revert the Waiver terms to 2 days. currently its 0 days which means if he wants to “trade” players from one of his teams to the other, all he has to do is drop them at 5am (when only he is awake) and pick the players up on the other team.

    3. quit being a fucking asshole cheater

    4. unlock me from everything im locked.

    5. if he was a real man he would hand over the Commissionership to someone else since hes proven that hes undeserving and untrustworthy, but we cant all be perfect.

    6. quit deleting public message posts.

    so there you have it, please post messages on the message board or email him directly. the season has only just begun, we can put this behind us or we can have a totally ruined league, the ball is now in your court. but i would like to continue to play since i believe my team will win, and the main reason that dude is cheating is because he knows that on an even playing field he cant be me.

    lets see who’s right.

    – tony

    ps im willing to believe that i could be wrong about mets and prowlers because i dont have as much damningly clear info on “them” as i do on Evil Empire (seriously dude, you really wanna use the same word ‘Empire’ on your fake team as you used for the League Name – Empire Strikes Back?) and Death Valley Demons, and if they write me to claim their innocence, im all ears.
