Is this trade vetoable?

Postby GaMBLe0709 » Wed Sep 19, 2007 9:34 am

I've never vetoed a trade but this one kind of caught my eye...

Reggie Wayne
Joseph Addai
Brian Westbrook
Vince Young

for

Reggie Brown
Travis Henry
Carnell Williams
Brandon Jackson
Ben Roethlisberger

Should I veto it?

I will say the trade definitely benefits the guy getting westbrook and Addai, but unless there is collusion, you have to allow this trade.

You may want to question both owners and find out their motivation for this trade. It does seem a little fishy and doesn't make much sense. But who knows.

Well, It is a bit lopsided in terms of player value

Addai > Henry (but close)
Westbrook >> Caddy
Wayne >>> Brown
Young < Big Ben

It might be helpful to see the rest of the rosters for the teams involved.

However, it is a little difficult to understand what motivation the Addai/Westbrook/Wayne owner would have to enter into this trade.

I'm not 100% sure you should veto it, but I'd sure want to know what this guy is thinking.

My biggest question is, why so many players? I mean, that is most of a starting roster! How many players do you start and bench each week?

Maybe just have them switch ownership of the teams or something...that does seem a bit ridiculous. I would definately pry and see what is going on.

I'd also be interested to know the remainder of their rosters...if Team A is trading his best players for Team B's so-so players, then something fishy may be going on.

Is it a money league?

If so, investigate. Then, if you have reasonable suspicion of collusion, veto it.

If not, let the trade through.
