But then again, one can't trade draft picks in Yahoo leagues either.
I hate that idea, because people just press the Veto button to be idiots, or because they don't like how one team improves their team.
The ONLY reason a trade should be vetoed is if collusion exists. Otherwise it's too subjective. In my local league, i leave the trades pending for 2 days, in that time people can publicly or privately vote to veto the trade, they HAVE to give reasons though. If the reasons are suspected collusion and the majority vote to veto, then the trading parties are informed of the league vote. The trading parties then have an opportunity to explain themselves. If a sutiable explanaition isnt given then the trade is vetoed.
Thus far, no trade has ever been vetoed.
The idea is to make it hard for people to request a veto, you sholdnt just be able to request a veto for fun. It's a serious thing, you're basically accusing somone of cheating. If you want to vote for veto, you better have a good reason for doing so.
