In one of my dynasty leagues, we have been able to place players on IR and keep them there, even if the player returns from injury. We've done this for a few years now, and there have been no formal rule changes. Furthermore, a new rule that was disclose told us that we could activate a player returning from injury "if we want."

 

However, this is not what the commissioner intended. He actually wanted all players returning from injury to be automatically activated and promoted to the active roster. He says that this rule was something he and the co-commish discussed, but never disclosed to the group, or disclosed incorrectly.

 

He's saying that he will use his power as commish to unilaterally activate such players, and that if a team has to cut someone from the roster to make such a change, then he will either force them to cut someone, or cut the player that needs to be activated.

 

What do you think of this? Is it fair for the commish to implement this rule immediately, or should have have to wait since he and the co-commish kinda messed up on how it was disclosed. Again, some players have already been placed on IR due to injuries that have occurred during the off-season and regular season.

 

Please let me know what you think. Thanks.

For that, I'd allow it. Keeping active players, that are not even hurt, on IR is bs.

Not if it's already in the rules. 

I have one league where you can only put "Out" guys on IR, but have to wait at least 4 weeks to bring them back up, regardless of status.  Bringing them up is also optional.  (I think this got put in when the NFL introduced the IR/return designation.) 

We can agree it isn't the best rule, but because it is in the rule book and everyone went into the season knowing the rule, I don't see that it should change unexpectedly.

Fantasy leagues should never change rules in midseason ever, without a unanimous vote from the ownership.

i wouldn't say never, but almost never.  if a rule would not actually impact strategy or any previous results, I think it could be ok.  In this case, I would definitely not implement mid-season.

Backstory?

Weird you missed it.  But yes, anytime he got in a disagreement with his commish, he'd rush in here and start a Shark Pool topic on it and word it in a completely one sided way.  Some of them were about things done years ago in leagues. 

Pretty sure he just sends the links to the league if they support his agenda, and ignores it and starts a new thread if it doesn't. 

C'mon lone star, fight your own battles elsewhere, we all thought you learned from the last ones.

While I agree with the general sentiment re. Rule changes, I would have a tough time arguing against this one. It’s barely week 2, and night body can come off IR for man weeks yet. It’s a no-brained rule to boot. Irritation might be warranted but not outrage. I need a third voting option here but lacking it I’m voting allow it

On the other site his polls are getting locked, but I find it humorous that the last poll was along the lines of is it fair for a commish to unilaterally remove someone from a league? I'm thinking he got booted from his league probably for being a royal pain in the back.

He's relentless. If his polls are any indication he must have made the league miserable.

I am assuming that it is not a 1 to 1 with the nfl ir rule, but more of the usual fantasy rule where you can put a player with an out designation into an ir slot.
