Collusion?

Postby ISLAS3000 » Mon Oct 10, 2005 5:31 pm

Does this seem like collusion to you (two teams teaming up)? They are in my money league and they are boyfriend and girlfriend. Team 1 gets S. Davis E. Manning and Team 2 gets Bledsoe, R. Williams.

I don't think the trade is that bad - not good, but not bad either. S Davis has value with 7 TDs and Eli Manning's stock is on the rise...Bledsoe's value is threw the roof and Ricky is an unknown.

Not collusion IMO.

I don't like that trade, and the BF/GF thing makes it very suspicious but unfortunately its not enough for me to say "collusion."

Exactly. I would feel uneasy about it because of the personal relationship. Also, I would not allow or play in a money league with BF/GF or husband/wife owners.

By R. Williams I ment Ricky Williams I hope you guys didn't get confused with Roy. The reason I feel uneasy is because they are Bf/GF and the guy is known to cheat. The very 1st year (3 years ago)I held my league the guy and his friend teamed up. His friend was out of the playoff scene by far and he was still making a push. His friend called him up and dropped major players so that he can pick them up. (Farve and Moulds)I was pissed because he cheated I had the league vote and everyone said it was ok except me. Everyone didn't care (because I was undefeated and everyone wanted other people to win except me.) I wasn't able to do anything because my rules were real flimsy and it didn't say anythin about collusion. The reason why I haven't kicked him out was because he is my older brother. Heres their Rb/QB roster:

Which team is it that you think has the upper hand in this anyway???

Bledsoe = Manning
Davis ??? Williams

So which team is stacking the roster?

Yeah, that looks like a good trade to me.

Manning and Bledsoe are identical in that they weren't expected to do well and they've been very good. That is even.

I think Davis is gonna be better than Ricky, but Davis seems to be an injury risk and Ricky has been the league's leading rusher and could become the starter.

I can see why you'd be suspicious because he cheated before and the trade is with his girlfriend, however, this one looks legit.
