Commissioner Corner Message Board
Hey guys, Im in quite the predicament. Basically two teams agreed on a trade, both accepted, Then one comes to me, telling me he's backing out the trade. Seems like a fair trade for both sides. I want to keep everyone content. Need advice asap, what to do?
If the trade was already allowed by the commish then thats too bad for that manager who wants it vetoed. If it was not allowed by the commish then ask the other manager if he objects to the trade being vetoed because the other manager wants to back out, if he objects then you can take it to a league vote to break the tie.

I wouldn't do this. I agree with all above. Trade is done once both teams click on the button.
Why should commish have to go through all this extra time to reverse a trade made by both managers. No way.
Now; If the league has manager votes to veto, perhaps league will fix this for the manager who wants to back out. If as you say it is a fair trade; It should stand. Period.
It is the age old adage of "buyers remorse" on the part of some managers. If both managers have agreed to a deal they MUST stick to that deal. No if, and's or but's about it.
Stand firm as commish. If you are trying to keep all parties happy believe me, that is impossible to do.
Time to practice a little hard justice.
Trade was accepted then the trade gets approved. John wrote a very good reply reread it. This owner may be upset now but all the managers including the upset one will respect you for doing what is right
"always do 'the right' thing. if you bend the rules on this one...you'll set a precedent...and everyone will expect you to bend the rules for them"
if the trade was processed...too bad, it stands. the worst thing you can do is start trying to keep everyone content. always do 'the right' thing. if you bend the rules on this one...you'll set a precedent...and everyone will expect you to bend the rules for them. in fact, i'd write a commissioners note to the league and explain why the trade stands...and why you won't be bending the rules for anyone, for any reason. trust me. I've been a commissioner for several rules. you don't want to go down the road you've been asked to walk. hope this helps...
