Anyone read Scott Engel's fantasy advice?

I noticed that and thought it was ridiculous. There is a MARKED difference between accepting something you were approached about, and trying to peddle bs trades.

If people were mad, you could always be like "hey, he offered it to me"

I don't think that guy is that clever, nor creative. His analagy was inapt as well.

Reputation is important, but it is also something more subtle and indirect. He thinks reputation is going to carry you to the top or something.

That guy's a moron and illiterate. I bet he'd say something like to bench Culpepper because it'd form an unfair advantage to the team you're playing that week.

Bogus advice, I'd expect a little more out of ESPN... especially since they're charging $20 for some advice now. :-t

this is a good point. like some others have mentioned, i'm in a league with friends- we love ragging on the guy who gets the short end of a lopsided trade. On the other hand, the guy who tends to get people to do these lopsided trades has found it harder and harder to get ANY trade, fair or not, as people know he's good at making a poor trade sound good for your team and now try to avoid trading with him.

But if you get offered a trade, unless it's due to complete inexperience (like being offered Marshall Faulk for Pat Kerney when i indicated i was interested in faulk), it's all fair game.
