I recently (early last night) proposed a trade involving giving up Jerricho Cotchery. The instant news broke about Favre going to NYJ, the other manager accepted the trade. Talk about bad timing on my part. It's not a terrible trade, but I definitely didn't get my money's worth for giving up Cotchery.
One might say that I should have been aware that Favre would possibly go to the Jets and wait to make the trade proposal. True.
In general, however, how do you propose trades? Do you try to talk to other managers and come to an agreement before making the formal trade proposal in the system? In the public leagues I'm in, I find that this is nearly impossible to do.
Trying to learn from my mistakes here. Any opinions are appreciated.
