few days ago ardilla notified me via pm that he is quitting the league because:
I don't want to be in a league where the rules keep changing to benefit certain teams and in the past I have found it pointless to discuss it with you.
obviously he thinks that i somehow manipulated fernis into suggesting those 2 new rules and that nobody here can stop me, but whatever. i told him that there is no need to sick around and set his roster, just for our sake. if he isn't into this league 100%, we definitely don't need any favors from him. but he has seen through my latest and cleverest manipulation yet:
I wont quit on the league mid-season, but I wont be back next year. I know you want me to stop setting my lineups to give your team a better chance of making the playoffs and I will do my best to make you earn it.
now i have absolutely no delusions about making playoffs this season, but i'm glad he still believes in my skills.
what i've done to earn such hostility, i don't know and to be honest, i don't care. i don't think any better of him, but that too is irrelevant. if anybody else agrees with his opinion of me, i'd like to ask you to quit right away. as i've said many times before, i don't want any negativity in this league. heated argument is ok, insults are not, so the sooner he is gone for good, the better. i'm still thinking about whether i should lock his team and proceed to set the lineups the way i do with other 2 dead teams. if it wasn't such a pain in my ass, i would have probably done it already
just letting you guys know what's going on. i'm sorry for all the drama. believe me, i know how stupid it looks to everyone else, but i can't do anything about it
