rules limiting when you can trade a player

Postby jebatzel » Sun Sep 02, 2007 7:41 pm

does anyone have a rule in their league how long a player has to be on their roster before you can trade them?

I was thinking about putting a rule in place saying you have to have a player on your roster for 7 days before you could trade them.

to stop someone from picking up a player and just turning around and trading him.

for example:
Team A has a running back who averages 25 points each week.

Team B has a running back who averages 15 points a week.

So team B picks up to two free agents that averages 5 points a week. He talks team A into a three for one trade and ends up getting the better running back for his lesser running back.

The trade would be fair since a player averaging 25 points for 30 points of players would be not debatable.

If there was a league rule that required you have to a player on your roster at least a week wouldn't that help from stopping this like this from happening?

If both teams liked that trade what's the problem? Team A could have picked up those players himself if he wanted them so it's highly doubtful this situation would occur anyway. Plus we all know that two 100 point players is not worth one 200 point player.

I am running a paid league so I want to make things even for everyone.

What is to stop a team from trading all their best players to their friends team. and then if they win the league splitting the league prize.


its a paid non keeper league.

I understand your thought process but that has more to do with owner mentality than anything else. All can see the transaction log. If they take the bait, so be it.

Are you joking? Whats to stop a team from collusion? LOCK THEIR TEAM and kick them out. If you dont want to allow cheating, then dont tip-toe around it, let them know its not allowed.
