What's the craziest thing you've ever included in a Trade ?

Postby spodog » Wed Sep 14, 2005 3:29 pm

Being involved with FFL Leagues for a long time, you tend to hear a number of interesting stories. After just completing a good trade that included draft picks in a future year's FFL draft's, I started thinking . . . .

What is the craziest thing that you have ever included in an FFL player trade?

Examples:

OK
"I traded Brett Favre for Aaron Brooks and an unscratched lottery ticket"
(this is made up)

Better
One guy I know traded Barry Foster in his football league for Nolan Ryan in his baseball league to another owner who was in both leagues.
(this is true)

Much Better
Many years back, a friend of mine offered to let another owner in his league sleep with his girlfriend (supposedly she was willing) in order to obtain Steve Young in an FFL trade. *
(this is true)

In order to keep the thread on track, your post must:

1) Be a true recounting of an actual completed trade

2) Involve something other than other NFL players in at least one side of the trade.




* - I never met her so don't ask me if it was a good trade or not.

Including anything else in the trade is unethical! I hope nobody in any of my leagues have any stories to add to this post.

I have offered kicks in the junk, but that's about it.

Last year in one of my leagues I traded lockers with a kid for Boldin, then just went to the office and requested a different, better locker :-b

In college, in a fantasy hockey league, I traded AlMcinnis and somebody crappy for 2 crappy guys and a bag of weed.
I was already out of the playoff contention so I figured i might as well get something out of it......

At the beginning of this season one of the other owners in my league really wanted to beat the team they were opening against and offered me $50 to use Priest Holmes for one week.

(I didn't do it, and both his team and mine won that week)
