Yeah, that's COMPLETELY different than losing a game purposely to help another team make the playoffs.
You're saying it's ok to weaken your team for weeks 11-14 for the sake of the playoff run in the other thread. Here your saying you have to submit your very best lineup for every game of the regular season for the sake of "fairness" to the league.
If he can make a trade for one of the WRs I mentioned, he's NOT weakening his team at all.
I can't remember the list but Ward was on it and he's not scoring as many points as Harrison.
Harry - 719 /5
Here's who I suggested because they have good week 17 matchups.
Ward -672 /6
Burress - 558/5
Stallworth - 443/3
Brown - 520 /5
Those are pretty darn close numbers to Harry's, and there's not a big gap in FF scoring. Burress is the odd man out because Stallworth's numbers are low due to injury. Plus Harry has such a stud status attached to him, he might be able to get another player out of the deal.
Trading is a part of the game. You stregthen YOUR team the best you can. Purposely throwing a game just because you're afraid to take on another team head-to-head is just lame.
If I were in a league where somebody did that and the league didn't take action, I'd quit that league the next year. That's not fun.
And nobody is going to change my mind, and I'm not going to change anybody's mind, so I'm done arguing this topic.
