Rule change in Season

Rule change in Season

We have a 12 team league on yahoo, and we had a league wide vote to change the trade veto from Yahoo's default of 4 to 7 in season(wk 8)....reason for it is because every trade was getting vetoed ...the vote took place 10-1 in favor of the rule change(12th manager was locked up during time of vote,and the comish controlled his team)..the 1 person who voted no was in first place and says i don't want any team better.. any thought on a rule change mid season!

Big picture, changing league rules after the draft is a big no no.

 

That being said, if the league is not running the way the players and the commish wants, then maybe it is time to discuss changes.

 

If a vote was held and the vote was 10-1 to make the change, I would make the change, but I also believe that Commish veto power is the only way to go in private leagues to avoid messes like this.
