Hmm, other than I'm not sure...maybe to prevent bad trades from going through at the end of the year so people going to playoffs could get an advantage?
Yeah that would be my guess. Like if someone is in last place and they trade away all there studs to a second place team to help the second place team in the playoffs. But if your talking about Yahoo you can contact your commisoner and it can be turned off if your league would rather have it off.
