Making things right.

Postby jebatzel » Mon Nov 08, 2004 2:04 pm

I had our first trade in our league go league this weekend.

The trade was very unballanced

S. Alexander for Vanderjagt and Westbrook

I approved the trade without looked at how bad it was.

Its a Yahoo league so I can go back move the players back to their orginal teams for this week or wait till Monday to do it.

Or I can have the player who got Alexander give up another player to make the trade more fair.

How do I fix this?

As a commisoner I broke my own rules.

As commissioner do you have absolute power (like, say, the Republicans)?
Or is this something the other owners have/had an opportunity to review and veto?
Depends what your league rules allow, but I don't think I'd go jiggering that deal unless there's some kind of appeal in in the works - and allowed.

I think I am down to 3 ways to handle this.

A) I return both teams rosters back to they way they were before the trade.

B) Return the rosters back after Tuesday (so the managers got to use the roster for one week)

C) Have the manager who received Alexander give up another player of value (T. Brady or M. Harrison)


I am leaning toward A or B.

After they get their players back they can work out a more fair trade and everyone will be able to see it.

As far as the rules go.

I never really clearly stated how trades go, but I as commisioner have final say.

To do the trade I locked the teams not involved, dropped the players for the trade, and then added them to the teams.

So which way should I go?

A, B, or C?

But, you indicated that you already approved the trade.

I don't think B or C are options.

You either reverse the trade as if it never happened or leave it alone. Any other compromise is your judgement and not fair to the league.

You may have to get a league vote on what to do with this mess.

I haven't asked for a vote yet, but I think the general feeling is the way it was done was the problem.

Everyone should wait the same amount of days for the trade to go thru.

1st you approved the trade so it stands, even though you don't think the trade is fair in all reality you got one rb who is a stud(shaun alexander) for one rb who is servicable and stud kicker who just needs some opportunties. The trade's fair move on.

personally i hate rejecting trades, i dont think you should reject it unless its obvious collusion. If the guy getting alexander is ripping the other guy off, then good for him. you should have tried to get alexander first.
