A trade should never be vetoed just because it looks lopsided on paper. So if you think these 2 guys are cheating...you should veto. Otherwise...let it pass. It sounds like you think they're cheating/colluding so veto would be the way to go. Good luck! ;-D

I agree with the first part, but I disagree on the count of doing it because HE thinks they are cheating. If an OVERWHELMING league sentiment agrees, then I think you would be within your rights to veto the trade.

Agreed, but how do you prove collusion? Unless it's just 100% obvious like the last place guy trading 2 studs to the 1st place guy for 2 scrubs...collusion is very difficult (if not impossible) to prove. I agree with you though. A trade shouldn't be vetoed just because the commish thinks they are cheating (bad wording on my part :-/ ). But if the entire league thinks something is fishy... ;-D

Thanks to deluxe_247 for the awesome sig!

I'm the commish in my league, and the way I see it, if you suspect collusion, talk to both parties involved and ask them their reasons for making the deal. If they can't give you any reason why the traded LT away, and you suspect collusion, I don't really have a problem with it. But I personally would put it to a vote for the rest of the league. excluding you and the 2 parties involved, because they are obviously biased, and you as commish have already made up your mind. If the rest of the league agrees it's collusion then you veto, otherwise, i suggest a laissez faire policy as commish.
