BTW, the rules state that at the discretion of the commisioner trades can be vetoed which give unfair advantage to a team over another, or which smacks of collusion. I've gained none of my players thru that means. Maybe next year, I do things more on a commitee basis or lay out more clear guidelines. This is my second year as a commisioner and am still learning a few ropes. Thanks to those of you looking to be helpful.
OK, maybe you are a putz - LOL.
As commish your sole responsibility is to maintain fairness of competition, not to make sure everyone's trades meet your approval. If you blocked a trade for any reason other than collusion, you have overstepped your authority - pure and simple.
You may not have stacked your team unfairly, but you did prevent others from improving their teams and that gave you an unfair advantage.
Don't mess with trade committees or any of that crap. Just allow all trades to be processed, as long as there is no appearance of teams working together to gain an unfair advantage.
