    Collusion or am I jealous?

    I see why you would have a problem with this trade, and any competitive manager would know that the Lee/Martin side wins by a lot, but unfortunately, to me it looks JUST fair enough to not warrant a veto.
    Although I do not see any scenario why the 8th place team would want Stat and Crawford over Lee and Martin.

    I would be pretty ticked off if this happened in my league, especially looking at the positions each team is in, but it would be hard to prove that they are outright colluding.

    My best advice would be to post a message on your league's board asking each manager to explain why they made this trade, and how they feel this improves their team. I'd be very interested in hearing the 8th place team's reasoning.
    Usually when teams in the bottom make trades, the trade stud players for depth. If this was Lee and Martin for Amare, Crawford and 1 or 2 other mid-to-late round valued players it would make a lot more sense.

    I guess I could see this being vetod, but I could also see how it could slip through without one. Seems like a #$%$ situation for you!

    • Well, I looked over it again, and I think I would veto it. My main reasoning for saying it might be close enough to go thru was that Amare is still a big name, and with his talented history maybe a manager thought he would keep getting healthy and healthier and end up being a beast 2nd half of season, which is very very unlikely but not outside the relm of possibility. But David Lee is playing SO much better than him right now that I just don't think this trade is OK.
      I can even see certain managers valuing Crawford over Martin. I'm not saying they should, but I can see it being a possibility, but the difference between Lee and Amare is so big that it just makes no sense.
      Maybe have it vetod and suggest the manager with Lee adds another mid round player in the mix. I think a mid round guy with high 2nd half of season upside could make this deal a lot more fair.
