Which Commissioner Would You Vote for President?
« on: November 04, 2012, 10:35:48 PM »
Which Commissioner Would You Vote for President (or Prime Minister) of your country?  In the spirit of the United States' Presidential Election, we are holding a special two-day vote to pick the best of seemingly the worst!  Feel free to provide the entertaining reasons why you vote for a candidate.
"They read their sports pages, know their statistics and either root like hell or boo our butts off. I love it. Give me vocal fans, pro or con, over the tourist types who show up in Houston or Montreal and just sit there." óMike Schmidt, Hall of Fame third baseman for the Philadelphia Phillies :PHI:

I actually would prefer any of the 4 to the 2 we have to choose from..and that's not saying much really.

If it has to be someone in sports, why not Billy Beane, he clearly knows how to get around having no money.

    July 20, 2016, 11:06:52 AM
  • snugerud: i actually dont mind the last minute bid up.  it creates some bad blood and rivalries.
    July 20, 2016, 11:16:15 AM
  • snugerud: there can be a strategy to it as well.  dont get me wrong , i hate when it happens to me....
    July 20, 2016, 11:17:21 AM
  • pandoval172: i don't think it was intetnional... this owner apparently just not paying attention b/c he bid up at least one guy who was already won
    July 20, 2016, 11:26:30 AM
  • pandoval172: but yeah snugerud i agree... i don't mind it eitehr when i'm not the one it's happening to :-)

  • snugerud: one of my leagues the GMs are absolute dicks in FA  ,,,, i love it.
    July 20, 2016, 11:40:13 AM
  • snugerud: they wait till 5 mins before a bid ends and then throw one on there
    July 20, 2016, 11:42:15 AM
  • pandoval172: to me that's just obnoxious.... not really supposed to be a part of the game
    July 20, 2016, 11:42:39 AM
  • snugerud: or bid you up intentionally with no desire to actually win the bid
    July 20, 2016, 11:42:42 AM
  • snugerud: we are all friends and know eash other in that league so its all good we understand its gamemanship
    July 20, 2016, 11:43:37 AM
  • snugerud: most of the guys i play hockey with so its fun in the dressing room
    July 20, 2016, 11:44:48 AM
  • pandoval172: yeah that's fine if ppl are all down with it. personally, i play fantasy baseball b/c i like baseball, not because i like weekslong message-board wars where the goal is to irritate other people and prevent anyone from signing an FA
    July 20, 2016, 11:45:19 AM
  • pandoval172: but yeah if it's a friends' league that's a little different
