Can we say "hypocrite", boys and girls?

Postby Poobah » Thu Nov 06, 2003 12:03 pm

A friend of mine joined his first league this fall with some people from work, and went to me for help. His team rocks better than any I have this year, sorry to say. Anyway, everytime he tries to make a trade, the "in-clique" shall we say tells him he's always asking for too much.

He gets like maybe his 5th trade offer all year, and it's from the president of his company. The guy offers my friend Amos Zereoue, and all he has to give up is Randy Moss.

Can I tell you I almost blew a headgasket when he told me that one?

I think he was saying that if his friend offered a trade to the president, the president would say "your asking for too much", but then the prez goes and offers him Amos for Randy. That makes him a hypocrite. The prez tells him his trades aren't fair and then offers one that is obviously not fair.

I think that is the first rule of trading isn't? Try to get as much as you can for as little as you can?

There's two types of ways to lowball somebody. One is to offer a couple of decent productive guys who don't add up to the guy you want, but it still might be tempting.

Fred Taylor & Terry Glenn for Randy Moss

That's at least worth considering and it features two starting players.

Zereoue for Moss is just ridiculous and insulting. A bench RB on a bad team, who didn't perform when he had the starting job. I'd never even consider trade offers from that guy again, just for treating me like I was a moron.

No, of course he didn't take the trade, but he didn't flame the guy like I would have based on the fact that the guy was the prez...

Ghidra, you've hit it on the head, I told my pal to just keep his head low and we'll work the wire to build his team. We got Santana Moss 6 weeks ago and Domanick Davis 4 weeks ago, and traded Moe Williams away for Fred Taylor, so I think it's all good. He won't finish worse than 2nd, I should think.... thanks for listening, everyone B-)

There is a guy in my league who will never make a fair trade. I don't know him, but the people who do in my league told me that he has actually said that he is not going to trade unless he can rip a guy off. That is the kind attitude that ticks me off. If you are going to be like that what is the point in playing?
