Somebody traded Houshmanzadah for Olindo Mare...is it vetoable?

I know it sounds like a joke but this actually happened...

That MUST be collusion, and therefore vetoable.

I've commished a lot of leagues and I've never had to veto a trade. Noone I play with would ever cheat/collude so even if it looks lopsided to you...you must pass the trade.

With that said, I would contact the guy getting Mare and ask him why he wants to give up one of the best WR's in the NFL for a kicker. I'm sure that he could get many kickers off the WW. I know Housh hasn't done squat for 2 weeks, but give me a break that trade is ridiculous. Like I said, I'd never veto a trade unless I suspected collusion. If you don't think they're cheating, I might veto that trade because the guy getting Mare is stupid. Hope that helps and good luck with that one man. ;-D

That's probably the worst trade I've ever seen. :*) :-S

I agree, and I would love to hear his reason for giving up Mare or Housh.

Mare isn't even one of the best kickers in the league lol, it's not like its Nick Folk, this is pure collusion, nobody trades a starting WR for a kicker, even if it was mark clayton, at least not if they want to win and that seems like a move somebody pulls when they are quitting.

You can't assume it is collusion.

Drop an email to the guys involved and ask for an explanation and be blunt. Tell them it is on every level you can see a horrible deal and that you need an explanation as to why they feel it is a fair deal.

Sorry, but if I'm commish, and I see a waiver wire kicker being traded for a WR1 I'm pulling the plug, I don't want to be involved in any leagues shifting the power like that, if you want to trade for one of the best kickers cool so be it, but I don't see anybody going about it by trading a dominant WR, if he really did want that kicker I'd tell him he needs to rethink his methods of what he wants to give up...Now player for player I'm very leniant, but I don't think this is acceptable in any league I am in.

That trade needs to be vetoed immediately, and all parties need to agree to never speak of it ever again. That is ridiculous...

I need some help on a little tougher call:

I'm not saying it is a legit deal or even a deal that should go through. It is highly likely that it is collusion but you CAN NOT assume that it is. AS a commish, you find out the details before vetoing anything. Any commish who blankly hits the veto button shouldn't be a commish.

By the way, Mare is 7 for 7 tied for 3rd. To me a kicker is a kicker, I don't care as it is mostly luck but I can't speak for other owners. I've seen kickers in leagues with fairly knowledgable owners go in the 6th or 7th. You want to veto something, veto that! :-b
