    I got screwed by the Commish!

    Commish in my league counteroffered my earlier proposal of Steven Jackson and Felix Jones/Reggie Bush for Cam Newton before today's games. He offered me Cam Newton, Santonio Holmes (who I had to drop earlier in the week), Jerome Simpson, and Chris Ogbonnaya for Colt McCoy and Steve Smith (CAR). Of course I accepted the trade ASAP. Right after the early games, got an email saying the trade I accepted was vetoed by the league. And soon after, see a new trade proposal with Newton, Holmes, Simpson, Ogbonnaya plus Julio Jones for my players McCoy and Smitty PLUS now Forte and S-Jax also. This was my league commish who offered me the previous trade, and somehow the league apparently vetoed it before the end of Sunday's games. I smell foul because I know the guy/commish saw the early fantasy results and then must've backed down realizing how careless his initial trade offer was, and using his power as Commish, backed out of a valid trade I had just accepted with him......

    • If that is league vote then the league voted it down.

        Thing is, doesn't Yahoo allow two days for the league vote to be assimilated so that all managers get a chance to decline/veto a trade that's been proposed??? I mean, there have been quite a few trades that's gone in & out and for the majority, I'd say that every trade has gone thru without opposition from other managers. I only see it fishy as that 1) Commish offered another trade after this one was declined and requested for additional/better players from what he originally offered 2) The veto was very quick and almost deliberate, as there are 12 teams total and the likelihood that there were a majority of votes computed to decline this trade so quickly seems highly unlikley 3) by virtue of accpeting trade, isn't approval/rejection notification pending for two days, instead of right away?
