I think we really need to know the records of both teams though before saying that the trade is vetoable. It's only vetoable if collusion is suspected. Otherwise the lopsided trade should be approved. And just because it looks lopsided one way on paper doesn't mean it will turn out that way. In every league you have some owners who don't understand how to or when to use their power of veto. That's why it's always better to leave the power of veto to 1 or 2 people. In most of my leagues the commish and co-commish have the power of veto and it's basically never used because the owners aren't cheaters. "Lopsided" trades should not be vetoed and that's a huge problem throughout fantasy football.
I play in a league where I'm the commish and I have veto power. I haven't vetoed a trade in years because the managers are pretty much free to manage their own teams. And since everyone is pretty knowledgable it's worked out well.
I can see the owner of the SA team needing to get RBs if he doesn't have any. It makes sense to save his season. But thats not what he's doing here. He's getting in return a 3rd down back and an injured back who has probably lost his job when he comes back. There is no upside to the trade. It makes no sense. And I don't even have confidence in Alexander coming back like he played last year EVER. But he should be able to net you more than 2 BU RBs and 1 that will miss the game Alexander is going to miss. Trade is garbage on the surface and the deeper you dig the more it stinks.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
