:-t Bad form.



Agree 100%.


Strongly agree with this as well.

Main Entry: col·lu·sion
Pronunciation: k&-'lü-zh&n
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French, from Latin collusion-, collusio, from colludere
: secret agreement or cooperation especially for an illegal or deceitful purpose

There should be some punishment, though I've never seen anyone punished. Mayby veto this trade and any other trade they try to make. Revoke their trade abilities.

And even though the last trade went through, it's still terribly lopsided toward the guy getting Portis.

That's pretty much unethical.
Meanwhile, if someone tried to pull something like that on me, I'd backstab them by declining the re-trade. Profit ;-D

Simply make a rule that a player involved in a trade cannot be traded back to the original team for one calendar year (if it's a keeper league), or for the rest of the season if it's a redraft league.

This is relatively simple to get around with some proactive rules.

That rule sucks... There are cases where you trade a player and then trade them back that are not collusion....

Case in point....

I traded Thomas Jones during one of my drafts for some scrub draft picks, never realizing he would amount to much this year.... Then, a few weeks ago, I traded Marvin Harrison in order to get him back.... Both trades were legitimate, and neither one was collusionary....

If you put a rule like you are talking about in place, then these types of moves would be forbidden, and I don't think that's fair, either....
