Should this trade be vetoed

Postby Bretware » Thu Oct 16, 2008 8:33 pm

Should this trade be vetoed, Philip Rivers for Muhsin Muhammad, the team getting the WR has 5 WR's now, all within 6 points. both teams are tied for first 5-1.
Both these managers have a history of questionable trades and backroom deals.
Thanks,bret

Value-wise, it is a stupid deal, because the guy giving up Rivers should be able to do better than Muhammad. That said, there is still no way you can veto this deal. The two are tied for first, so they obviously feel like they can help their own teams without unnecesasrily bolstering their opponent's. Its a dumb offer to make and accept, but there is nothing you can do about it IMO...

That sounds kinda hokey, but really, without seeing both teams rosters it's not really possible to see what's goin on in the trade.

Just ask for an explanation, that always makes things easier, ask the guy who is giving up Rivers why he wants to do the deal, because Rivers is a top 5 QB, Muhammed not so much...It shouldn't be vetoed even though it's dumb on his part, but I would let it go, he's in 1st place, I'd only get involved if the guy giving up Rivers was in last and it looked like he was selling his team off.

Anytime there is an unequal trade it will raise eyebrows. Here is a question. How far down does your league pay? Maybe they are trying to tie up 1st and 2nd and are going to split the money.
