One of my good friends asked me join a fantasy football league this year that was made up of his brother, his nephew, his cousins, his friend, and his cousin's friend. Besides my friend I don't speak to anyone else in the league. I was relying on him to fill me in on details about the league and give my dues to the commissioner. I ended up winning the league, my friend finished in second, and the commissioner (his cousin) finished in third. Up until today, my friend had been telling me that our league was winner-takes-all and that first place would win the sum of everyone's dues.
I joined the league right before the draft and I wasn't part of any of the discussions about what the prize would be. Now I'm being told that there are going to be prizes for first, second, and third place. It's my theory that the commissioner suddenly changed the payout after he realized that he finished in third in order to win some money. I suspect this because the commissioner changed the amount of teams that would make the playoffs well in to the season and without any warning, so his team could be in the playoff picture. Instead of winning $500 my friend is telling me that I only won $250, that he wins $150 for finishing in second, and that the commissioner wins $100 for finishing in third. What should I do? I feel like I been swindled.
Send the $250 to me. I have a cousin who needs it to pay a fee to his bank so he can legally deposit his lottery winnings. That's how it works there (Estonia), fucked I know. He is promising 20% of his $1M Euro winnings if you forward me the money so I can get it to him. Only a fool would turn this opportunity down. Email it to me here:
Deal with it. You don't know the guy, so suck it up. You're friend is getting some too, so doing anything about the matter could go wrong with him as well. $250 is better than nothing.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
Tell the commissioner that it is bullshit to change the playoff structure and other rules after the season starts. He's probably just overcompetitive and can't handle losing, so make sure to be delicate when you call him a whiny faggot.
OP here. I messaged one his friends that's also in the league on Facebook and I asked him what was his understanding of what of how the prize would be distributed. If he says that he was also under the impression that it was winner-takes-all then I might have a case.
