Wanted to post a question for my friend who is in a espn $ league. I've never played in a espn league, but looked at his settings and did some research and have come up with this.
The league is suppose to have 24 hours for deals to be accepted/vetoed... if not all teams vote then obviously in 24 hrs it will occur.
Seems like espn references the commish as "LM" (League Manager). I've noticed a lot of trades allowed and vetoed "by LM". It is really interesting when the commish has personal deals go through "by LM". There are other deals that doesn't say "by LM", so there is a difference. I counted 14 deals either passed or vetoed by LM and just 6 that have gone the regular course.
The commish (actually there are 2 guys listed as LM in the settings) has been called out on this before, but he stated that he didn't know his "vote" would overrule the possible trade. Is this true? From the LM point of view, is there the standard button to approve/veto a trade (just like the regular team owners) or is it an obvious "accept/veto trade now".
I've looked at random posts for people starting espn leagues and notice a standard rule setting for "Votes Required to Veto Trade = LM Only Vetos"
This league is "Votes Required to Veto Trade = 5". So it seems to be set up that half the league can make the decision... but 14 of 20 deals/vetoes still show "by LM" next to them.
This is a league where easily $500+ could be made, so it seems that these 2 LM's have the power to allow/not allow deals, that other teams are offering and accepting.
Just looking for any insight.
