So far, the only 'trades' I have had to veto - and it is not a trade - is we have a rule where if you have a player be lost for the season then the team that loses him gets the right of first refusal on his replacement, IF that replacement was a free agent until the starter was hurt.
A few times a stud would go down, and somebody else would snatch up his replacement ONLY because they didn't want the other team that had the guy that got hurt to have him.
To me that's not sportsmanlike.
So, when Michael Turner on team A went down, Team B grabbed Snelling simply so team A could not get him. Veto.

why the hell stop people from hoarding? everybody has the same opportunity to do so? telling people who they can trade...who they can't trade...what's fair...what's not...what's hoarding...what's not...what the motivation of a manager is........and on and on. this entire concept is so foreign to the actual way things are run in the NFL...and the further people try to play "control freak" and rule over a league, the further away from real football it gets, and the less fun the game is. it ends up being an adult (at least...so called) version of high school where the thugs and jocks and beautiful people fight for control over everything and everybody. why not let adults trade to their hearts content as long as both parties are in agreement? if most people would admit it....most vetoes come as a result of people trying to keep one of the two teams involved in the trade from becoming too powerful...and has mostly nothing to do with "fairness".
