And since this is the playoffs, I am the only one who can change a player after the game has started due to injury or not playing. But that is old news since we have been playing this way for years. It looks different from CBS but it isn't.
    But Manning had already played. I could understand helping him out if his player had not yet played. But Manning had already played! To me, it seems like allowing him to start Rogers would be the "the favor" because Rogers hasn't played yet.

    In most leagues if you forget to submit your starters it's just too bad and you are out of luck.

    Jefferson has three QB's.

    Manning
    Rogers
    Flacco

    Manning played the early game on Thursday but Jefferson forgot to submit his lineup (if I understand you correctly), therefore the commissioner could have granted him the chance to start a QB that hadn't played yet: Rogers or Flacco.

    Can somebody else comment here because I don't want to look like a jerk and maybe I am missing something here.

    And I will make the necessary changes
    The state — whatever its particular forms — always expresses itself as a collective form of property ownership. All political systems are socialistic, in that they are premised upon the subservience of individual interests to collective authority. Communism, fascism, lesser forms of state socialism, and welfarism, are all premised upon the state’s usurpation of privately-owned property. Whether one chooses to be aligned with the political "Left," "Right," or "Middle," comes down to nothing more than a preference for a particular franchise of state socialism.

    No your not being a jerk. Your right, I gave the benefit of the doubt to Jefferson since he has played manning almost exclusively. My fault.

    I don't know what jefferson says. I gave everything he told me in your PM I sent. I will let him know this became an issue, not necessarily with him but with me, since I assumed and gave him the benefit of the doubt.

    Well in fairness.... it was his fault also. He forgot to finalize his lineup prior to the first game of the week.

    Well, that's true. I have been on alot of owners butts in recent weeks about this and revved it up a notch since it was playoff time, and since I know jefferson has not lied to me ever, like I said, I caved in I guess. Without thinking about it and that's my fault.

    Well nobody is accusing anyone of lying of course.

    After all, Jefferson himself admitted on your profile page that he didn't get his starters in until Friday (the day after manning played).

    That's why it's really important that with stick with the rules that we have agreed upon even if it stinks for one of our friends. Hopefully for Jefferson Rogers will go off for 50 points and make me wish I had kept my mouth shut!

    I always submit my lineup on Tuesday so that I know for SURE I have some sort of lineup in just in case I forget. Then later in the week I go back and re-submit my finalized lineup based upon a monkey throwing darts at a peg board filled with player names.
