If the software won't let each owner undo the trade, the commissioner has no business doing it either... unless of course both owners are in agreement.

I totally agree. The timing and terms of the trade were agreed to by both parties. The guy receiving Bulger could have opted to wait, but obviously was hot to get the deal done. There was no cheating, and no deception. It shouldn't matter whether the trade was agreed to on Friday, Sunday, or the previous tuesday. The results would still be the same. The trade was agreed to, Bulger got injured AFTERWARDS. That's the risk with any player. I would be fumed if this got overturned.
