Will that trade stand? It seems lopsided enough to me that it should be vetoed. Did either of those guys draft Vick #1 overall, by chance?

Did the owner of Tiki have a lot of depth at RB and/or a really weak D?

It is pretty stupid, but in one of my leagues TB was drafted with the first pick in the second round and Barber lasted until the 34th pick. It is possible that the guy getting Tampa belives he is getting a steal, with all that said it still seems stupid.

That's not a bad trade if the scoring favors a stud defense. In one of my leagues, tampa ended up with about 350 points last year and Tiki had 100 less. If both teams got what they lacked, then this is a fair trade.
