I don't care how small minded the dopes are- everyone enetered the league knowing the rules and the consequences of the rules. Personally ( I didn't veto), it doesn't matter if the trade was valid or not because the rules stated you can veto and it was. END of story. Maybe the comissioner should learn how to take his lumps because he's the one who made the rules anyway, and not abuse his power- changing the rules when they benefit him.

btw- he gets A Green


you sure there wasn't a discussion at the start of the year as to what sort of trades were to be vetoed?


yes there was. He wanted the rule that stated "A simple Majority can overturn a trade." That was the agreement, and the comissioner should stick by it. I don't see any room to argue FOR the comissioner changing the rule. So... If I was playing blackjack and the dealer decdied 1/2 through the hand to change the rules to "22"

I agree. Maybe the trade shouldn't have been vetoed, but that's beside the point. It is an abuse of power to change the rules in the middle of the season...

I agree that the rules shouldn't be changed mid-stream - that should always be Rule #1: the rules don't change.

The trade shouldn't have been vetoed.

But the rule change was a worse violation. Apparently the league is veto-happy, so any team really improving is going to get vetoed. Yet the commissioner gets to operate with an advantage since he isn't subject to the same stupid judgements as all of the other teams in the league.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

Yeah, you can't change the rules without notice because you're a worthless commish. I can't believe some "small-minded dopes" here are siding with him.

i agree with most here..i dont really see why this trade was vetoed...but the rules should never be changed during the season, unless EVERYONE in the league agrees on it.

If I were you, I'd demand that the Commish undo the trade.

The best way to run trading is always by Commish overview. That's the only way for any trades to occur. If a person has to send a protest e-mail in order to get a trade cancelled, they'll let go rather than bother over an even or slightly slanted trade. But if all they have to do is click a link and then click 'No' nobody will ever complete a trade.

LOL funny given it is so obvious.

Sucks to be you in that league. I'd tell the moron to jump off a cliff, but to be sure not to hurt the ground upon impact.

maybe the arguement could be made that the league abused their power, so turn about fair play?
