Too many times, I've seen trades voted down for selfish reasons: "I wanted that player", "this trade might make his team better than mine", "if this trade goes through, I'll have to play against that player this week", or some similarly silly reason. It's hard enough to find one person who can be objective enough to let fair or close to fair trades go through. It's nearly impossible to find a whole league of owners like that.
This is a good point, and is the biggest flaw in any voting system. Essentially you have to have a group of owners with enough integrity to remove themselves from the situation and judge objectively.
There are two ways to run the vote – either the majority has to approve for it to go through, or the majority has to disapprove for it to get vetoed. I tend to go for the latter, since having a 2/3 or even 3/4 majority rule to veto makes it more likely that those selfish owners are mitigated by those with integrity.
