League votes are the best way IMO, gives everyone a chance to have their voice heard.

if it was me, i'd just do what was in my best judgement. if you put it up to a league vote, some people might vote it down just because they think they'll be hurt because it'll make one or both teams better. or maybe going by fantasy points. set a limit of how much difference there can be in fantasy points earned. actually, nevermind that last one b/c if one player starts to emerge in the middle of the year, that would be a big problem b/c they wouldnt have the sufficient pts but may have the same value as an established starter.

Leagues votes are we-todd-did unless you are a group of close-knit friends.

If it's a public league or some chumps you meet on the Timberlake message board, you'll get people vetoing left and right. If a trade makes a team a tiny bit stronger, it will get vetoed because people don't want another team to get better...only their own.

Best is commish veto with a good commish. We elect people to govern. Do you really want to poll the country every time a president wants to do something? Chaos. In fantasy football, the results could be even more disastrous.

Fantasy Football isn't a democracy. You must rule with an Iron Fist. Opinions should be welcomed and weighed and then dismissed. That's why you're the Comish to determine if a trade is shady. If you have any doubts just make a post for advice and unbiased opinions on trades ;-D

Yeh but that diminshes the point of fantasy football because when your trying to trade you obviously want to get the most for the least. And if your in a close race and people around you dont want you to get a good player at a certain position because it will put your team over the top then they vote no/ I think commish should decide makes the most sense IMO.
