Commissioner Corner Message Board
That time of year - some teams are out of the running and every playoff team-elimated team trade looks questionable.
Tell me if you think this is should be vetoed:
Play-off bound team gets: Hakeem Nicks
Eliminated team gets: Big Ben and Tolbert
IMO: Nicks is a top WR and now healthy, while Big Ben is now playing injured and Tolbert was producing due to Matthew's injury. I don't like it but I'm biased.
What do you think?
I think it depends on what both teams look like... I think it looks fine even without looking at both of them. Looks like a position needs trade.
At no point should a last place team even give up, so if this trade made him better as well.. Especially if he had QB/RB issues, I think it's completely legit.
Not only is that trade not worth a veto, you should WANT it to go through. It looks like the good team is dropping some back-ups because he feels strong at RB and weak at WR, but that's crazy. Ben plays better at the end of the year, and Tolbert could be the feature back at any given time. Seems like the team is question is one injury away from regretting that deal.

First, thanks to everyone for the input. I really didn't think it would be vetoed as my feelings are completely biased (and its a big money league).
He is now fairly at risk now in terms of back-ups, however that makes his starting team (12-team, fairly even talent spread):
WR Steve Smith
i think its fine nicks is no andre johnson. I tend to bench nicks every now and then since my wrs are roddy, andre and nicks...but tolbert is projected 10 points ben gets you 14 nicks on a normal day gives 7 good day gives 14...so even trade for me
