Would you veto this trade?

Postby twinkypoop » Sat Oct 04, 2008 4:04 pm

Hello! Thanks for your help in advance!

This is for a shallow 8 team, standard scoring league where you have to start 2QBs.

A trade has been accepted for the following players:
Team 1
Jay Cutler
Team 2
Wes Welker, Braylon Edwards and Chris Cooley.

Both teams are 2-2, and the team trading Cutler is loaded with QB's (Romo, Brees, Anderson), and the other team started the season with Tom Brady.

Team 1
QB: Romo, Brees, Cutler, D Anderson
RB: McGahee, Hightower, F Taylor, A Bradshaw
WR: Plax, H Ward, Bryant Johnson, Gage, M Clayton
TE: Heap, J Carlson

Team 2
QB: T Edwards, K Orton
RB: M Turner, Slaton, F Jones, D Sproles
WR: Steve Smith (Car), Jennings, Colston, Edwards, L Coles, Welker
TE: Witten, C Cooley

When I sent an e-mail out to the league, I heard from a 3rd owner, that owner 1 & 2 are friends, and owner 1 is a newbie and does not have much experience playing fantasy football, and owner 2 mentioned to owner 3 that he didn't want to include Witten, as "owner 1 has no clue".

Although I think that it is pretty lame that owner 2 is taking advantage of his friend with this deal, I can't veto this trade to protect owner 1 from his inexperience, and I think owner 1 also needs to learn from his mistakes. I am leaning towards not vetoing this trade, but what do you all think?
Thanks for your help!

You've answered your own question quite well I think.

Team 1 is stacked at QB, team 2 is stacked at WR. While team 2 could and should have brokered a better deal it fills legit needs on both sides. Team 2 (new guy) can still field a very good WR corps week in and week out.

Your hunch is correct, let er go.

I agree with bungle & JS. Unless you think these 2 owners are cheating/colluding to make 1 team better, you must let the trade go through...no matter how lopsided it looks on paper. This trade isn't lopsided IMO & lack of fantasy knowledge shouldn't be a reason to veto a trade. Good luck! ;-D

Thanks to Bungle, JS & Flotsam for your input! ;-D
I put the trade through this morning!

Maybe Braylon and Welker (and D Anderson and NE Offense) would return to form soon!

Let it through, then use the message board to humilate/mock the guy taking advantage of a newbie. Someone playing with friends should have more class.
