Is this trade fair? WHIR

Postby cagerage » Thu Nov 08, 2007 12:36 pm

I'm the commish of my league and am debating with an owner as to whether or not this trade is fair or not. Team A is getting K Jones, G Jennings, and Ch Johnson, Team B is getting R Moss, C Benson, and J Porter. His arguement is that it's one starter for 3, Ch Johnson has the talent to be equal to Moss the rest of the way. My arguement is that it's one superstar for 3 and that Team B is so deep that those other players are useless to him on the bench. What good is depth if you can't use it to benefit your team somehow? And you can't speculate on what a player might or might not do. IMHO, BOTH teams are benefitting from this trade, and in my book, that makes it a fair trade.10 team, we start 1qb, 2wr, 2rb, 1te, and 1k, and have to carry 3qbs, 5wrs, 5rbs, 2tes, 2ks, and 1 of any position. 1pt/10yds rushing/receiving, 6pts td. 1pt/25yds passing, 6pts td. I've only listed the original rosters with the players that are be involved.
TEAM A******** TEAM B
Lendale White**** LT
Alexander**** *** Jacobs
Benson **** ****** K Jones
D Williams **** ** D Ward
S Young **** ***** M Turner
K Keith

R Moss **** ******* Ch Johnson
Fitzgerald **** **** Boldin
Ca Johnson **** ** Evans
Porter **** ********* Jennings
Lelie **** ********** Branch

Any opinions would be appreciated. Leave a link.

Your argument is on point and your friend is upset that other teams are improved via this trade. Team B is trading for a superstar that is performing and improves his starting lineup, while Team A is building depth where needed to improve his lineup. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this trade. ;-D
