I work for a local baseball league (adults). I've worked for this league in some capacity since 1990, in an official capacity since 1998. I am Senior Scorer, Statistician, and took over the role of Webmaster in the middle of our 2012 season. My father was Webmaster up until June 15th when his computer was over-run by a virus, and rather than have his machine fixed (or buy another outright), he abandoned the website. For 11 days there were no game reports, schedule updates, site maintenance or, most importantly, stat updates. On June 26th I took over the Herculean task of catching up nearly 2 weeks of stats. I have run the website since then, and our league's president is aware of this (we had a lengthy phone conversation about it).
In addition to updating all of the stats, I gutted the website completely and rebuilt it from scratch. I added 3 new feature pages, and invited a free-lance photographer to take action shots at the games, which I posted on the home page and elsewhere. The website doesn't look great due to the shitty software we use, but it is, by all accounts, a hundred times better than it looked when my father ran it.
I was not paid for any of the work I did. Who was paid? ---My father. He collected $900 for MY work. I am beyond livid. At this point, I see three paths.
1. I can take it up the tailpipe.
2. I can take my father and/or the baseball league to court and sue.
3. I can destroy the website.
I'm leaning toward #3. I've been doing #1 for years when it comes to this league, and it isn't exactly satisfying. #2 would likely result in a judgement in my favor, but my father is on Social Security and would go to hell before he'd squeeze out a dime. #3 sounds pretty damn good right now. I'll never see the $900 I'm owed, so IMO, my website doesn't exist.
"Roger that. Over."
