If someone makes an obviously bad offer once, then I'll just reject the trade. If they do it again, then I'll tell them that they're going to need to give me a lot more. I don't know what would happen if it got to a third time. Maybe I'd send them an equally crappy offer back or something.

This guy has sent me variations of the Addai offer at least seven times now. It really gets annoying, as he always emails me saying "OMG what do you want for him then?"

The best thing to do IMO is to counter the offer and at least act like you want to make a deal work. Hey, maybe you find something you like after a while or they get tired of it and quit offering it.

Not necessarily in that order. :-b


We have a winner. ;-D

Basically you should just tell him that either 1) Addai isn't for sale, or 2)tell him exactly what it would take for him to get Addai. If you tell him 1) he should stop sending offers, if you tell him 2) and he declines, just tell him "take it or leave it". If he won't stop, then just keep declining.

BTW, your commish has no clue what he's doing. While that trade he vetoed might look lopsided, that isn't a reason to veto a trade. Trades should only be vetoed if 2 owners are suspected of collusion (cheating by 2 owners stacking one team with ridiculous trades). In all my years of fantasy football I don't think I've ever had to veto a trade. And believe me, there has been more than a few that had me scratching my head. But unless I think the owners are cheating, I can't veto. Different people value different players differently. Just because I think a trade is lopsided doesn't mean that the owners involved in the trade think that way. Like the others said, you might want to think about getting out of the league or electing a new commish. Good luck! ;-D

Dat's right. You pay your money and play your team. I got out of a league that I really liked simply because of all the fighting over other people's trades (always initiated by the same league vet). So I completely agree with flot as far as vetoing trades.

I agree with the collusion thing. I don't think I should have to be subject to the league's player valuations. Although, there are some trades that could be classified as "unintentional" collusion... meaning that even if people thought it was good, its so ridiculous as to have the same effect.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

Pretty much ditto. At first I will just decline trades...no comments.

If they continue...then I won't even look at the trade. Just let it sit there so they are limited until THEY cancel the trade.

counter-offer, and get something interesting out of it, like a date with their cheerleader sister.
