losing to an absentee manager

Postby thejvp » Mon May 24, 2010 7:43 pm

I'm semi new here and I was wondering if we have a term for when you lose big to an absentee manager who couldn't care any less about fantasy baseball?

Nope, but we're open to suggestions.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

I was going to go with Ghostbustered until I decided to delve in Urban Dictionary.

In what alternate world does THAT happen? I feel like that one's right up there on the "things that never really happen" stage with act at the center of Soulja Boy's hit "Superman dat Hoe".
