The SomethingAwful.com forums are a Virtual Vesuvio for up-and-coming artists such as Jeff Krisko and Waleed Ismail. Recently, a 10-man fantasy football league was formed in one of the snarkier parts of the boards. Round one started… and a kicker was picked 7th overall. The team that picked the kicker was angry that the draft had to be held when they were indisposed. After the draft, first-picker-kicker team dropped their entire squad.
As commissioner, what would you do to ensure the best experience for the 9 other people in the league? Give your response in the comments section, and also check to see what our experts (and me) would have done.
In this instance, the commissioner decided to replace the team and redo the entire draft. This proved to be a poor decision, as only about half the league could attend and, this punch line is choice, the replacement team also picked a kicker in the first round. So, obviously, that’s not the best answer, unless the question is, “how can a commissioner make me laugh hard and choose their plight for YBTC?”
