Commissioner Corner Message Board
Okay this was about 6 weeks ago, but I just need opinions here. This was one big trade
Team 1 Trades- Peyton Manning, Brett Favre
Team 2 Trades- Tony Romo, Ben Roethlisberger
Team 1 Trades- Adrian Peterson
Team 2 Trades- Earnest Graham
Team 1 Trades- Lavernues Coles
Team 2 Trades- Jerricho Cotchery, Wes Welker
Team 1 Trades- Ben Watson
Team 2 Trades- Jeremy Shockey
I thought this was absolutley terrible. Team 1 was getting a terrible deal. They were trading A.P. for Graham and running back, and their quarterbacks weren't getting much better. For WR, this was right when Coles was going nuts, and Welker didnt seem much better. Tight ends wasn't getting him anywhere anyways because he already had Heath Miller who was doing better than Shockey. I vetoed the trade and everyone in our league agreed. But the 2 people trading were saying "NO you can't veto thats cheating." So we put it back and let it through. The person getting ripped was being an idiot. He wouldnt trade Welker for Roy Williams and Kevin Jones (Williams just came off like a 200 yard performance) but he'd do that. Well now he team sucks and the person ripping him off went from like 2nd to last to 3rd now. I still think this shouldnt have gone though, what do you think?
I don't see that trade as being lopsided 6 weeks ago. My take on vetoing trades is this: No matter how bad the trade is or how dumb one party may look, you can't veto it because they paid their money and can run their team how they choose. This is assuming there is no funny business going on.....If so, "all bets are off"

In my opinion trades should be vetoed if there is cheating going on not if the trade is dumb. One team obviously giving up and giving OK to unfair deal. Dumb trades are made by PRO leagues so I think dumb trades can also occur in FANTASY leagues. I've had leagues were people were trying to cheat and those were vetoed.
Dude...in my league (I'm commish)...I basically run it as "majority rules." If I get enough people that feel the trade is unfair...then the trade is denied. I've had a few people that I felt were "in cahoots" with each other try to pull off bullcrap trades. I try to be as objective as possible (obviously). If I, and the majority of the managers, feel the trade is roughly equal, then I have no problem whatsoever approving the trade, otherwise...TRY AGAIN! I don't allow any shit whatsoever in my league. The funny thing is...I'm 5-7 in my own league (7th place), but I'm in first place in my other 2 leagues that I'm not commissioner of. Go figure.
