Thanks for all your help everyone.
To the poster who said I dropped the ball by missing the first deal- maybe I intimated incorrectly but these deals were all concurrent.
We use a league vote system, and this is the first year of the league. There is no written constitution beyond the yahoo rules. It's a bunch of guys who used to work together, but not all of us still hang out on a regular basis. Here are the deals in full
Steve Smith of CAR, Greg Jennings, and Phil Rivers for Devin Hester, Brandon Lloyd, Rex Grossman
Ryan Grant, Johnathan Stewart, Eli Manning, David Garrard, and Kellen Winslow for Ike Hilliard, Chansi Stuckey, Brett Favre and Trent Edwards
Chris Johnson, LaDainian Tomlinson, Dwayne Bowe for Robbie Gould, Mark Bradley, Cedric Benson and Brady Quinn (this was the vetoed deal)
i talked to the manager who proposed the trades and he said that because his team was 2-7 or so that this was his way of making his team interesting again, as he was clearly out of the hunt. I'm thinking about instituting a consolation bracket where winner gets first pick or something like that, maybe a cut of the pool, in order to avoid this next season.
I'm interested as to why it is within my rights to veto all three deals outside of our league votes system? anyone else have thoughts on this?
