    Obvious Cheaters????

    This trade was just accepted in a league that I am the commish of. The 2 managers are buddies and made other trades this season that were quite fair but I think this is just the 2 teams now cheating and loading a team.

    Team A gets Marian Hossa, Evgeni Nabokov
    Team B gets Patrick Kane, Ray Emery

    Emery just went on IR and the team getting Emery would now only have Emery (IR),Vokoun, and Halek as his goalies.

    I set the league up as commish votes on trades but I also agreed to allow a 2 day wait so the rest of the league would see it and could post a message voting against any trade. this way people just can't veto for spite, they have to have a reason and speak up. I also agreed that if 4 speak up I would veto a deal. It takes 4 votes in a league vote setting anyways. So the only difference is people have to publicly post thier vote instead of just clicking and hiding behind the vote as in league vote.

    My main concern is that I already caught 2 teams earlier cheating and locked them out of any and all league activity. So they cannot vote against it, the 2 involved won't vote against it, and I also got 2 that are only active every week or so. They set their rosters about once a week or so and leave it so they may not see it in time.

    So If this doesn't get the 4 votes I agreed to allow them to have should I just veto anyways? This screams of obvious cheat to me. I know I made a deal, but I think this warrants breaking it.

    What do you think?

    • Yea your in quite a dilemma there commish. I honestly don't know what to say, but yea it def doesn't seem like a fair deal. If i were you i would ask for some reasoning behind this trade by both owners. If they can't give some solid reasoning to why this trade is going through (especially the Emery side) then i would veto it.
