Commissioner Lockout: No, the commissioner still has the ability to view pending owner-initiated transactions.



Not a big deal but I don't think a Commish should ever have or for that matter, want this functionality. By not having it, it eliminates any doubt whatsoever of a Commish ever gaining an advantage, even if its inadvertent on a potential waiver move.

Not pushing for that change here, just tossing out my 2 cents.


As a commish myself, I agree with you here Jesteva...maybe change it after the season...let me go on record here also saying that I don't think at all that Swarm used any advantage here as a commish and did not do anything improper , but I do agree that by turning it off, it does eliminate any possibility of doubt...I didn't know he could view but on the other hand, why is the reason a commish does need to use it, I would not want to take a tool out of his hand...also this league has been going for 6 years now so I don't think it's that big of a deal either

I have no doubt art it is. I guess the reason the possibility exists is to give the commish a tool to solve problems. In this league managers don't need much help or supervision from the commish but I guess in some leagues they do.

BTW. Third. I've been planning to cut down leagues for a few years now. Just can't bring myself to the point to actually do it. I like the competition and I've been in most of them for quite some time. But you're right. My performance in some of them is lacking due to poor focus. It's not fair to the other managers. I need to scale down. Great White will be the first to go I think. To limited to be really fun.

FYI guys, the only reason the commish settings are like that is so I can process waivers, and it was just switched to that setting when the Thursday night games started. Those of you who are in The Premier League will notice that I cant see transactions in that league, because no one has asked me to process a waiver claim after TNF kicks off, at least so far this season.

You will also notice that I do not log into the site as the commish from kickoff Sunday until the following Friday, if at all. That should put your minds at ease as to whether or not I am using the commish powers appropriately. Prior to the TNF games starting it had been over a month since I even logged in as the commish. Everything is in black and white on MFL, which creates a level of transparency that I am comfortable with.

If we change it, fine, just understand that you wont be able to make any roster moves next season from Thursday evening on once the TNF games start. Its up to you guys.

Pillagers and Canes in consecutive weeks = I had a golden opportunity to take the lead in this league. Cero production from my DE's and a accidental switch from James Jones to a injured Rice put a stop to that dream. :F
