Commish trade activity

Postby Newbee2007 » Sat Aug 02, 2008 11:32 pm

We have one guy in our league who seems to make at least one monumentally bad trade every season. It is a keeper league where we can keep three
players at any position. This year he traded away his 2.1 pick in this seasons draft and swapped 1st round picks, his 1.1 for the other guys 1.10, for Peyton Manning. I would chalk it up to another example of extreme ignorance but this year it was the Commissioner who took advantage of the guy.

My question, is all fair in love and war or should a league's Commissioner hold himself up to a little higher standard and not take advantage of the intellectually impaired owner in his league?

Your thoughts please?

Many leagues must have the other owners approve a trade by a majority vote or some other similar technique.

Not for nothing, but I think in a 3 player keeper Manning is probably worth the 1.1 pick.

I know where you are coming from. My one commish seems to always make lopsided deals, so even when a straight one comes through I need to do serious research to make sure hes not exploiting something.

We love intellectually impaired owners in our league. We usually try to get one new one each year.
