• Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

  • KYLE KYLE Sep 2, 2010 6:37 PM Flag

    Tell me what u think?

    I offered a guy Romo & a WR (forgot which 1-maybe it was Mason) for Big Ben & Roddy White. He declines & counters with Addai & R.Williams for Kolb. I am surprised but take his counter offer. Today (trade would be final tomorrow) he goes to message boards & says he made mistake & paid too much for Kolb. Well I certianly can understand that he made a mistake there, but he continues that "if trade goes thru he would drop his players & leave league to maintain competitive balance." 2 problems imo here. 1st, he went to message boards without ever sending me e-mail explaining he made mistake. I would have understood that & traded his players back to him for Kolb. I think this was unfair on his part. 2nd, who drops all their players to maintain competitive balance. That does not maintain competitive balance that destroys a league imo. However if trade is not vetoed (which I went in and voted veto myself) I will trade him his players back tomorrow if the idiot does not drop his players 1st. Do I have right to feel this guy is wrong in way he handled this? Thanx.

    • Yeah. He sounds like a newb. It'd be great if the commish could settle it fairly. You deserve to make out, but to the point where he's going to be a baby and ruin the league. Tough situation.

      Hey all. 9th year running. Two groups of mutual friends of the commish. Friendly, and flexible. Drafting soon. Commish is open to joining other leagues to reciprocate - schedule pending.

    • Join a real league with a real commissioner and you dont have to deal with jackasses

    • my opinion should be enough for you to know he handled it poorly.. i've been playing for 12+ years and over 50 leagues... and i've seen it all, and i remember crap like this happening all the time when i played with friends in high school... not so much now, as people in my league are more mature.

      but nothing wrong with wanting more opinions...

    • question: is it private or yahoo public league? its not your fault he screwed up...i'd email him back and say you'd trade him back kolb, romo and Mason for big ben, white and addai and williams....so basically he gets his guys back and then has to accept your 1st offer in order to...if he says no way and will drop his players then email him and say that you will trade back..

    • he handled it poorly; is obviously an inexperienced manager, and does not know proper fantasy sports etiquette.

      also doesn't realize that once he accepts a trade he can't change his mind... simply because he decided he no longer liked the trade
