Selling players

Postby thrlofthehunt » Thu Nov 17, 2005 12:00 pm

In our keeper league we keep 2 players and pay 3/4 their auction value at next years draft. This is the first keeper year and I expected some teams without playoff hopes selling their Veteran scorers this year for future stars even if it hurts them this year

But today I got a email about a trade that is waiting for the commish aproval.

Team A has traded: Record 7-3 leading division A
WR Isaac Bruce, STL

And receive from Team B Record 3-7 last place division B
WR Larry Fitzgerald, ARI

Message from accepting owner:
I was hoping to keep fitzgerald for my keeper. but he hasnt produced so good luck

Team A and B are brothers as well - Do you think the commisioner should let this trade go through.

This trade does not make sence to me unless Team A is going to split this years winnings with B.

agreed. unless the owner was hoping larry fitz to "produce" him shoes or leather apparell, he's being clearly disingenuous and it's a trade that should get stomped.

huh? what part of 359 passing yards wouldn't you like if you owned the team's primary receiver (on a team with no passing game and no defense so would have to catch up a lot)?

Fitz is top 5 in all statistical categories.. Bruce has not done squat all year. Not too mention Bruce may be done as he is older then dirt.... That trade is total junk! I would throw a hissy fit.... At least stir some shit up just for fun.... ;-D

The commisioner is the only one who can Veto trades, I hope he does the right thing.

So far he has not vetoed any trades, If he lets this go we might have to institute a league voting system.

I posted a message on the league message board about this, I hope some else in the league backs me up on this so I dont look like the a-hole.

Very bad trade in my opinion. Having it be between two siblings doesn't help appearances either. I'd be against it.

Call for the veto. This trade is garbage. The brothers are in it to split the superbowl winnings
