You cannot allow this to happen.


What's the sense in trading if you're not gonna help yourself out.

Even though that's a horrible trade for the dude giving up westy and grahm, I have to throw the collusion card out there.
If the trade was rackers instead of grahm i would like it a little better. in Reality, this trade strengthens both RB spots. Just one better than the other.

Have these guys been trading regularly or at least one other time?

What's so outrageous about that trade?

People really pay attention when LT is part of a trade, but give me a break, he is getting Westbrook and Portis in return.

You can't really veto this trade because the values exchanged are on par.

It is of no consequence where the teams are in the standings or who else they have on their rosters. These factors only come into play if the trade is obviously imbalanced based on the player value involved.

For whatever reason, people cannot pick up on your high sarcasm factor quickly enough. ;-)

BTW, with the sched the Lions face the LT owner would have been better off going with LT and Jones the rest of the way. Jones is going to improve dramatically down the stretch.


That's what I was thinking...I would have stuck with LT or at least tried to get better backs for him...I think you guys are right...I'm not pissed about the trade...I think Team A is getting 2 underperforming backs to go along with his already underperforming one.

From what I've heard, I think my league is pissed because the guy who manages Team A was 5-0 and has dropped the last 3...he's SUPER competitive (not like the rest of us aren't, right? ;-) ) and people in the league thinks he's conspiring with Team B to split the $$$ if either of them win, thus the LT trade. At this point, the race for the playoffs is tight, but now Team B is pretty much guaranteed a spot. The trade is pretty much a done deal...just wanted to check with some knowledgeable outside opinions!

Thanks!

A top-2 RB for 2 top-10 RBs is more than fair. Let it go.

I'll work on some smilies, Mercer.

For everyone else, I was joking. The trade seems fine. Another team getting better is smart on their part.

Fear is an unacceptable reason to veto.

I think it would be funny for you to have a big grain of salt or something as your av or sig BH...you could still have the Philly logo on it somewhere too! ;-)

Its a fair trade, and with the way KJ has played all year, very understandable for the LT owner. Personally, I don't know if I could give up LT, especially if this is a keeper of any kind, but there's no reason to complain. Just hope you get the team with LT as your week 10 matchup.

Yeah, I don't see a problem about this trade. Like what was said before, it basically comes down to one team trading the top RB for 2 top 10 RB's...the kicker is really just a throw in.

The funny part is that I just played the team that gets LT last week and I play the guy that got Westy and Portis this week, so technically I don't ever play the team with LT unless we both make it to the playoffs!
