Don't panic or this may happen to you

Postby moochman » Mon Sep 08, 2003 5:03 pm

The blood is barely dry from Sunday’s carnage and already the wheeling and dealing has begun. In my league there is a trade that could upset the competitive balance of the league. Team A wants to trade LT to team B for Moss and Gary. Problem is that team B already has Ricky Williams! I would have offered team A a much better deal for LT, but who knew! Oh, and team A’s backfield will consist of Tiki and Gary. :-t

Veto it. LT won't play like that all season.

Sounds like a great deal for the team getting LT. Veto if you can, then email the owner giving up LT and ask him what he's smoking and if you can get some of that.

It's not a trade I would do, but it is definately NOT vetoable. Sure LT has hype, but gary is a starting back, and Moss is one of the best WR's, and he actually produced on sunday. Let it go through, but it sucks that one guy has LT and Ricky...unfortunately you can't judge a trade on what team already has what players, you judge a trade on whether or not there is collusion, or one party is not aware of an injury/revelation, etc.

Since both sides know what they're getting, let it be. Personally I don't think Ricky is as good as people say he is. Let it be. A veto can ruin league chemistry...

the only reason a trade should be vetoed is if one team is tanking to try to help another team. This doesn't sound like that's happening. You can't regulate stupidity and you can't force someone to value a player the same as you

I don't think you should veto it, but man does that suck when some idiot turns the league upside down with a trade like that.

I would absolutely veto that. LT was almost certainly a top five pick, while Moss may or may not have been taken in the first round at all, and I would guess Gary wasn't drafted, depending on how much James Stewart news there was when you drafted. So this early in the season, it comes down to draft order for me when vetoing a trade (of course there's exceptions, but I don't think this is one). I vetoed one earlier this year (Boston for James Stewart before he was hurt), and it upheld because of the huge difference in draft positions (DB was rd 3, Stewart 17). It wasn't collusion or anything, just a stupid trade that would have been a hinderance to the rest of the league. I'm not saying the protest will hold up for sure unless you have the power to make the call, but I'd give it a shot.
