Verdict Rendered in Armada Case
United Rotisserie League commissioner Daniel Shoptaw handed down a decision on the issue broached by the Edwardsville Armada, ruling that owner David Reed could release Brad Radke with no penalty, but must pay for part of Guillermo Mota’s contract.
Reed contended that since he was not aware of Radke’s retirement or Mota’s suspension before winning their services, he should be allowed to release them and replace them on the Armada roster.
“I would like to take this opportunity to strongly encourage all owners to do their due diligence when preparing and submitting bids. Please continually review them for accuracy and be aware of issues relating to those players,” the commissioner wrote in his decision.
Interviewed after the decision was released, Shoptaw stated that he was glad, in part, that this situation came up.
“It really gave me a chance to consider the retirement problem that we are going to run into as the league goes along,” he said. “Now we have procedures in place to deal with this issue.”
The Armada noted on their team blog that Radke and Mota had been released in accordance with the commissioner’s ruling.
