How Do You Guys Deal With Horrible Offers?

Postby Fantasy Man 27 » Mon Jun 25, 2007 1:23 am

Okay, I've been doing fantasy football for a few years now, but it seems like this year I have been getting the worst trade offers. How do you guys deal with managers that keep sending you these horrible offers then get mad when you say "No Thanks."?

Here's a couple examples (Round Taken)

MY: for His:

Shaun Alexander (1) for Wes Welker (21)
Joseph Addai (1), Braylon Edwards (5) for Brandon Jackson (6), Donte Stallworth' (9)
Joseph Addai (1) for Brandon Jackson (6), Michael Bush (17)

I just don't know how to stop these trades...

(Oh, and both are commishes in the leagues)

Just like flot said, counter with a really lopsided trade. They should get the idea.

I did that once with the guy who wanted Addai. He countered back with "and you said my trade is bad..."

The same commisioner that sent me these offers just vetoed a trade.

I agree with some of the above, send them just as bad trade offers. And it does sound like you're playing with idiots.

Exactly, I don't get mad, I just turn them down, no need to get mad about it.
