I know it's tricky sometimes, but trades should only be vetoed if you suspect collusion.

A big part of the joy of fantasy football is the camaraderie and competition amongst friends. However, no matter how tight you are with another league member and no matter how close they are to a championship, under no circumstances should you join forces. This includes intentionally trading your best players for stiffs, or holding your studs out of the lineup, or dropping key players so your pal can pick them up. Collusion is the cardinal sin of fantasy football and will earn you a one-way ticket out of your league faster than Terrell Owens can renege on a contract.
Even if a trade looks lopsided on paper, it shouldn't be veted unless collusion is expected. Everyone has different values that they put on different players. What might look lopsided one way to you might look lopsided the other way to someone else. So unless you think these 2 owners are cheating to try and make the 2nd place team win...I think you have to let this trade go. Honestly, it's not that bad IMO. Good luck!
