A fantasy Season useless!!!!(trades posted)

Postby Aaron's Arsenal » Wed Nov 29, 2006 5:11 am

I am new to fantasy football but LOVE the NFL and have built a team that is sitting #1 of ten. I clinched the playoffs and felt pretty darn proud of myself. Now Iturn on the computer to review next week's lineup and see four teams that were involved in trades with three teams that are not gonna make the playoffs giving their stud guys to the #3 man who also clinched. I'm screwed in my hope to win bc I'm going against a bunch of ringers now! My Commish is weak and won't "veto" it bc he vowed not to veto trades, doesn't want to make anyone mad. Now I feel all my hard work means nothing and the time I wasted is just gone. I wouldn't mind if I lost fair and square, but to a guy who "inherited" ringers just sucks! anyhow, Ijust wanted to vent and get any comments from someone that may have had the same thing happen...

Are the trades balanced, or, are they like, giving Larry Johnson for Dominic Rhodes? If they're not balanced, then it's cheating, and the commish should veto it

If they are all bogus trades (which they probably are) the commish should be fired for allowing them to go through. And you should simply not play in that league ever again. I know it sucks, feel bad for ya. !+)

Yah, that sucks. Just shows the other side of the coin when people refuse to veto.

That's why most serious leagues won't allow trades this late in the season. If this is a money league, it is the Commishes RESPONSIBILTY to analyze all trades and veto when needed. "I don't want to make anyone mad" doesn't cut it.

They are labeled team 1 and team 2, but the trades are between three teams. They are trying to build a champion to win out and split the money. Yeas there is money involved and our Commish is a pansy. We confronted the teams but they INSIST the trades are fair...you decide!

The only trade even close to acceptable is the SA for Dillon one, but since that one was made after last week's performances that trade is suspect as well. The others are blatantly collusion; especially
Team 1:
Tony Romo (Dal - QB)
Terrell Owens (Dal - WR)
LaDainian Tomlinson (SD - RB)
Andre Johnson (Hou - WR)
New England (NE - DEF)
Will Witherspoon (StL - DL)

FOR

Team 2:
Brett FavreP (GB - QB)
Joe HornQ (NO - WR)
Deion Branch (Sea - WR)
Deuce McAllister (NO - RB)
Tennessee (Ten - DEF)
Landon Johnson (Cin - DL)

Team 1 has a better player at every single position, including LT who is worth most of the team 2 guys on his lonesome.

You NEED to get the commish to veto these....they aren't even CLOSE to being acceptable, let alone reasonable. Since it's a money league, I'd say make the commish veto these, if he doesn't try as much as possible to get your money back (It's pretty much an equal to theft what they're doing, since there's money involved.), and either way ever play in this league again.
