Possible Cheating?
 
In my league, every person receives a maximum of 4 player adds per week (something I look to change next season). Obviously everyone knows the playoffs are here so every add/drop is crucial right now.

One of the teams (the co-commish no less) had used 3 adds thus far and just made a 4th. The 4th add was dropping Bachman, and picking up Hainsey. Then, 10 minutes later, Hainsey is dropped in favor of Andy MacDonald. He claims it was a mistake (even though you get a second chance to see the person you're adding, but mistakes are still made), and wanted MacDonald instead. He was looking for a D-man to help out in the "Blocks" category and MacD was first in FA with 110, and Hainsey was second with 103. So it definitely looks like a mistake considering they were one and two in that specific category that he was searching for.

In my opinion, you need to be more careful of this, and as a result, you shouldn't be able to abuse if you must, your commish powers by fixing this mistake. You messed up, and you need to live with it.

Am I acting too harsh by not allowing this "mistake" to go through and allow this person their technically, 5th add?

Well, first of all Im with you on how you reason; If you mess up, its your own fault and you should live with it.

Although it kinda depends on if this guy is last and really far behind and maybe not as smart as the rest of the league. In other words, someone you can forgive for their mistakes more than others.

But despite that, I agree with you, that would and should be his 5th add.

Well, like I said, it's playoffs so this person definitely knows what they're doing (they were also the #1 seed :P )

Thanks for the advice though. More opinions are appreciated though.

Did he abuse his commissioner powers to override the 4 pick limit and add the other guy (technically making it his 5th)?

If the answer to that is yes, then I think a stink should be made, no matter what place he is in. He should be made to add the player he picked first for his 4th pick and the guy he currently has should be put back on the waiver wire.

If he didn't abuse his powers to do this then it's all gravy. No harm, no foul.

Does Hainsey go on waivers or can he be picked up as a FA?

Yeah that's where he "abused" his commish powers. He used his 4th add for the week on Hainsey, realized he messed up, used the "edit roster" for any team and dropped Hainsey and picked up MacDonald which would technically be his 5th add.

Hainsey was added back to FA for some reason, but when I dropped MacD to put Hainsey back on his team, MacD was added to waivers.

He should be made to use that "edit roster" feature and put the guy he originally used for his 4th pick back on his team.

I do this every once in a while if I see a decent guy with a B2B game coming up. I'll grab him, then immediately drop him so he goes onto waivers and is unavailable for other guys to add.

Sounds like by doing what he did, he made a good player unavailable to add.

Yeah, that's not so bad but this guy used his commissioner powers to add a guy after he had already used his last pick for the week. That's not fair and I would consider it cheating, no matter what his reasoning was.

I feel he abused his powers.

They give you the second screen so you should see.

Does everyone else get to make a mistake and have it corrected?
If the previous answer is yes, what if commish isn't on to do it for you until the game has started?
