TLDR; I strongly recommend that no one ever join a Yahoo Custom League with a commissioner they don't know. This year, on the day the season started, the commissioner of the Custom League I joined froze the entire league, and froze everyone's ability to take any action, including contacting each other. Essentially, it was a dead league thanks to a commissioner who decided to abuse their power. I was able to get the league deleted after going back-and-forth with Yahoo support, but commissioners really should not have the ability to completely lock out the entire league. This is the second time this has happened to me when I joined a Custom League, and I've learned now to never join a Custom League unless I know the commissioner. My league is not the only league this has happened to, and Yahoo is almost always unwilling to rectify these situations. I was only able to get the league deleted because I continued to press them, so if you are also in this situation, you should try pressing Yahoo support too, until they relent.

I joined a Custom League about a month ago, and everything in the league was set up the way I preferred, from the number of teams, to the scoring settings, and so on. But I noticed that a few days ago, the commissioner completely screwed around with all the settings. Every team is completely locked out from various actions; posting messages, emailing the league, editing teams, editing team names, etc. The scoring settings were also changed completely, into what I consider ridiculous (only points, PPP, SOG, wins, and SV% are counted now). In addition, the teams have been finalized, so there is no way to delete my team anymore, and there is no way to contact the commissioner at all, since we are all locked out from sharing communications of any kind. (Keep in mind this was a random custom league I joined.) Any suggestions for what I can do? I'm not completely opposed to just ignoring my team and making another one, I'd just hate for it to count against me in my fantasy profile.. If there is any way to completely get rid of my team, that'd be great.
