Wow this has snowballed! Let me give my 2 cents here, this has gotten personal, which is unfortunate and unneccesary, lets take a step back here guts. Cap don't quit the league your the champ and you did it while missing the draft last year, which is impressive. You'd have at least the top 3 pics this year and probably 6 out of the top 12. You'll get most of your team back, I say challenge yourself and keep playing, it's just a game. Take your personal feelings for BB out of it and you know you'll have a good time. If I were you I'd want to beat his rear in FF now more than ever. As for BB being hardline, well he is amd that's what we all agreed on last year.
BB perhaps you could give Cap some time to cool down, I understand the draft is close but giving him till he gets home at 7pm isn't unreasonable.
Hopefully a timeout will let cooler heads prevail.
Thanks Dave, but it wouldn't have changed my mind.
Let's really sum up the facts though:
1. Unprovoked character attacks: Me being a nonparticipating moderator when he has no access to any of the issues brought to my attention and confronted me on the editing of language which I USED to do routinely as all my well know (when I was on my religious kick but that's a different story); attacking my work on the salary cap when he had no knowledge of what went into it or why I stopped doing it and then assuming I had the ability to communicate with the forum and just simply didn't (which isn't true either). I answered factually to each of these challenges with no angry remarks although it does anger me when people make such charges and don't have jacksquat to back it up.
2. I did not come in here demanding to be able to set my keepers, I specifically said "I would like to request" and gave the reason. This reason was immediately challenged and no matter how many times I explained the situation, Birdbrain continuously challenged me, thus accusing me of lying without having the balls to come right out and say it. There is no precedent of me ever trying to do this. When I missed the draft last year, I flat out said, "my bad, I'll deal with it".
3. Despite that, I was willing to consider to continue playing in the league even though I was insulted at every turn in his typical condescending I'm better than you manner. I stated I would let him know "this evening" whether or not I'd play--something I didn't HAVE to do. I could've kept my mouth shut and just not shown up for the draft but I showed plenty of respect for this league by saying I would put it to rest this evening.
4. Despite the above he decided to assert his authority further by imposing some arbitrary deadline on me. When I informed him that I would not be prepared enough nor would I be home to make a decision by that time and simply stated I'd have an answer by 7pm (and truthfully would have actually been able to answer now) it was given no consideration whatsoever.
Honestly, dealing with asshats like that are just not my idea of fun. Good luck Dave, I wish ya the best and if you guys ever overthrow the tyrant, I might be interested in rejoining but nah, even if he were to reconsider now, I wouldn't play because of him and his s***ty attitude.
