Vetoable?

Postby Skins Fanatic » Wed Sep 26, 2007 6:18 pm

This trade is currently tearing apart my league. 12 person league that is entering its 4th year, but we had to replace someone this year, and a new guy with no fantasy football experience was chosen. Today he traded away Rudi Johnson straight up for Jake Delhomme, and the Commissioner accepted the trade because he claimed it was made "in good faith."

IMO this is exactly what a Commissioner veto is there for. Thoughts?

For everyone's information, though I don't think circumstances have anything to do with the decision in this case, here is the league info:

12 team redraft, normal scoring except QBs are hampered by 50 yards/point. QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, Flex, TE, K, Def rosters.

Team A:
Carson, Cotchery, Fitz, LJ, Edge, Dallas Clark, Deangelo, Santana, Chris Henry (RB), Jason Avant, Vernon Davis, Burleson, Maurice Morris + Delhomme

Team B:
Housh, Kevin Curtis, Ronnie Brown, Jamal, Heap, Jerry Porter, Big Ben, Colston, Rivers, McMichael, Kenny Watson + Rudi

I disagree. This trade borders on not making sense, but it is not so lopsided that it should be vetoed. I wouldn't make the trade, but I'm not the owner of Team B and, as a result, I don't have the rights and privileges that go along with being the owner of Team B.

If the trade was entered into honestly and with both owners believing they were getting a fair exchange, what is there to veto? The Commissioner is not in place to be a "Supermanager" over everyone else's team and veto decisions each owner makes. Maybe the Commissioner should veto his lineup too if he starts the wrong player.

I couldn't agree more ;-D Would I make that trade? No....Is it so outlandish that it should be vetoed? No
