Questionable Trade in $$ league

Postby Guru13 » Thu Sep 20, 2007 6:01 pm

posted this in Commish Corner, but here gets loads more traffic so figured I'd try here also.

Commish gets: LT
gives: Dunn and Steve Smith

the guy who's giving LT would be in a whole he could never get out of...it's just crazy, and some guy (not even in the league) is saying it's an even trade so people are agreeing with him...thoughts?

Unless you suspect collusion and question the owners, you can't really veto it. Smith IS posting great numbers, it's easy for someone to say he is going to have a career year this year.

I wouldn't personally give up LT for basically just steve smith, but i don't think you can veto that.

Not vetoable in my mind.

Of course any knowledgable fantasy person can see that its a little lopsided, but its not vetoable because Smith is off to an amazing start and LT is not.

The LT owner could easily be panicking and trying to get someone useful out of LT while he can.

The Smith owner is obviously trying to sell high on Smith and buy low on LT.

This is most definitely not even, but its far from vetoable.

I agree, stupid trade but not vetoable based purely on that. Needs to involve collusion or some other unethical act in order to veto, IMO. Trades do not need to be fair to be legit. Stupid people are everywhere.
The cake is a lie.

i'd throw a fit. stomp your feet. bang your hands on the table. scream and yell. and threaten to quit the league. then make a crappy offer for lt.
