Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
If you were offered a trade for a player whom was injured in Sundays game and the trade was accepted. When both players are healthy it is a fair trade but now that the one player is going on the season ending IR it is really not a fair trade!
Would you as the person receiving the healthy player offer to trade the player back and get the injured one back for you to dump ???
Too damn honest to a fault! I am forever giving advice and telling people whos hurt and not. Take this guy dont take this guy.. Even though everyone says oh i already knew that and no one ever says thank you i still do it!!
That actually happend to me last year, I was on the bad end of Charles and his season-ending injury. But hey, that's the game, there was nothing I could do while the trade was pending. Him and Peyton Manning ruined my season, but I still made a salvageable third place.
It's a part of the game man, you don't ask Yahoo to give you back a #1 waiver spot if a guy you picked up on waivers all of a sudden got hurt. If this guy knew he was giving you an injured player, he's a douche, but I don't think he should have to trade back the players because it was partially your fault for not thoroughly reviewing the trade and researching the players.
was the trade accepted before the injury? or did you hit accept once you found out that player was injured?
in any case, i think that it's the responsibility of each owner to know what's going with their players. i know that a lot of managers leave trade offers up, not declining them, waiting for something to happen. i usually only offer them for a day, 2 max...if they still haven't responded, delete the trade offer.
to answer your question, the person receiving the healthy player should not feel obligated to offer another trade, to make things "fair". but this also goes back to the question i asked at the top of this post...then it because a matter of morals.
