Anderson is probably a top-5 RB on weeks Portis doesn't go. He will probably be insignificant, but he has the potential to win a fantasy championship for you (if Portis were to get seriously hurt). You cant say that about Ferguson or Gramatica.
If people have a problem with 4 brothers playing in a money league, they should have been addressed before the season.
The problem though is, he probably invited this type of reaction by contesting a trade that wasn't the least bit unfair, and probably wouldn't even be closely scrutinized if the same trade was made between two different teams. I think trades should be contested only in extreme cases, where it's blatantly clear one team is taking advantage, because if you contest every trade you just open a huge can of worms that can result in it being impossible to get any trade done in the league, and will eventually end up ruining the fun of the league.

It has never been a problem in my league 7+ years going strong. Gotta nip that collusion in the "hiney" asap or it will fester until it destroys your league.
I don't like the idea of not letting new managers that join a league make trades for at least a year. All that does is it eliminates some of the fun that they have, and it also puts them at a severe competitive disadvantage. What if their starting QB goes down, and they need to pull off a trade to replace him? Is it fair that he can't do that yet other teams in the league in the same situation can?
