    Help settle a trade dispute

    Hey G B - It doesn't matter. It is a "league votes" league. End of story. Next year, consider a rule that allows the Commish to overule any trade the league vetoes. Or change it to "the Commish decides".
    Confirm to the 3rd place team the bad news (no Lynch), but he still has Lesure.
    Early in the season, most trades go through. Only later, when usually only people who are not at the bottom of the league are still interested, do those owners react by vetoing trades that could affect their own playoff hopes. Same thing happened to my league last year - 1st 21 trades all approved. The last 8 (in the final weeks) all rejected.
    So we gave the Commish (me) the power to overrule vetoed trades this year. The net result; only 3 trades made all season so far (I extend the trade deadline to the farthest out YAHOO allows)!
    It's a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. I guess the silver lining is that you have owners in your league who care trying by to protect their own interests. Since you are friends in a $ league, have a good debate over the offseason. You guys can figure it out.
    Happy Thanksgiving! Personally, without knowing all the goings on in your league, I would not have overruled the League Veto on this one.
