Sometimes I think that they just want you to mess up and hit accept by accident. I did that in one yahoo league and the commish refused to veto the trade. Now I just let it sit until the time period runs out.

I usually will let them know that they arent even close and give them a vague idea of what they would need to give for that player. No need to get upset though...doesnt hurt to keep saying no...

Best advice in the thread - decline the trade, and get out of those leagues.

Not necessarily in that order. :-b

What gets me is that the same commish that vetoes a reasonable trade is the one making idiot offers.




I'd call him on it. "You veto a trade that at least makes sence, and offer garbage like this? What gives?"

It really all depends what current mood I'm in when I receive those garbage offers.

If I'm feeling logical, I'll just simply reject the deal.

If I'm feeling lighthearted, I'll reject and respond with something along the lines of "Only if you throw in your backup defense."

If I'm not feeling so peachy, I'll tear him a new one.

I'm a lot like the poster above. Depends on my mood. I need to be more even keel this season, but a majority of time I write them a 2-3 line scathing response so they know I'm not going to take trash and give them back gold. I also want them to deal with me straight up and not try to lowball me out of the gate.

There was one guy that played in a $250 buy-in redraft league who would trash your players while trying to trade for them and then praise the ones he was trying to deal. It was rediculous and a bad way to carry yourself, but he rediculed some of the nicer guys into trading the guys he wanted. Basically, he told you why the trade was great for you and bad for him while he was trying to do it.

When I try to trade people, I go after what I want, but I try to make it a win-win. I usually offer players on positions they are weak on to what they have depth. I really wouldn't want to ripoff another owner unless it was because of my foresight. Making anything more than a 65-35 deal is just bad for the league and its bad for fantasy football.

Just turn the offers down and maybe reply in a PM, that you only want serious offers. DON'T make a post on the league message board bitching about trade proposal, because even if everyone agrees it's a dumb offer, Nobody wants to make trade offers to the guy that might make an issue out of it.

you could also just leave the offer there. the guy may be blanketing the league with stupid offers, and he can only have so many out at a time, so you could just ignore it
