TJ Hoosh/Kellen Winslow for Reggie Wayne/Lamont Jordan?
This trade was just accepted, and now there are some seriously rumblings from other managers in the league about vetoing it.
I get TJ/Winslow.
I need a TE badly (had Crumpler, but dropped him...been playing Greg Olson)
The other guy needs RBs (right now, he has Bush, Benson, and Foster). the other guy wanted LaMont Jordan, so I said Okay...but not straight up for Winslow. We agreed to make up the gap between Jordan and Benson by swapping TJ Hoosh and Reggie Wayne.
nothing wrong with it. Wayne is a beast. I wouldn't doubt he outscores Housh this poi...

I think the deal is strong especially with Harrison on the fritz. Wayne get even more looks, not that he needs them. T Gonzalez is always one of the best TE's.

Vetoing this trade would be BS. They probably just don't want you to do well. That is definitely a fair trade.

Other managers said that if I gave the guy a better RB than Jordan, then the trade would be fair.....
So my other RBs are Larry Johnson (no way), Travis Henry (no way on his part), Laurence Maroney, and Thomas Jones.
Which other RB could I replace Jordan with to make it "more fair"???

They need to understand that in order to veto a trade there needs to be either cheating going on or COMPLETE STUPIDITY.
I don't see complete stupidity in that trade. I agree that you receiving TJ and Kellen is better than having Reggie and LaMont, but its not so lopsided that it is a no-brainer veto.
They also must judge a trade on how it fills a position of need for the other team. You need a TE, he needs a RB. RB are more valuable than TE and therefore he must give you slightly more compensation.
i.e. In one of my leagues I just completed a trade where I got Desmond Clark and Anquan Boldin for Chris Brown and Jay Cutler. I needed a TE because I had just traded Vernon Davis/Cedric Benson away for Rudi Johnson/Calvin Johsnon AND Todd Heap is my other TE (who is on a bye this week and has been injured lately.)
The other guy just lost Ronnie Brown and only has Brandon Jacobs and Tatum Bell now. I offered Chris Brown for Desmond straight up just because I have an empty roster spot and can't afford a loss this week. He came back offering Clark and Steve McNair for Brown/Cutler. I told him I'd take a WR to make up for losing a RB and given his need for QB and RB, he was willing to let go of his best WR.
All about filling a need
