What was the worst trade allowed in your league?

Now you all see why I tried to stay out of it. I dont think I vetoed any trades with my vote because although some of them seemed crazy to me.. they still did not warrant a veto. It was just a big freakin mess and I am glad the trade deadline is here so I dont have to listen to people complain about it anymore. They all though I was the one who had the final say so, but not when it comes to trades.. that is a league vote thing.

Team A in all of those I posted is really hurting for players but most people assumed he was trying to quit on the league and he was giving his players to a couple of his close friends who were both in the top 4. I think he could have done better for the players he was trying to give up, but I still dont think he or anyone else was trying to cheat.. therefore I dont think they should have been vetoed... of course that was not my call so I just shook my head and went on about my business.

There is really only one thing about FF that really dislike and that is leagues where every rejects trades unless the trade is for back-ups or kickers. Those trades you have listed don't look anything like collusion and should have gone through. Most leagues I've been in, not all, will try to block trades of the teams who are competitive because they don't want that team to improve.

Fiedler and W.Green for Ramsey and T.O. I don't know what the guy trading T.O. was thinking and our comish has been AWOL because his GF has him whipped more then any other man I have ever seen in my whole life. I live with the comish and this whole school year since Aug 12 I have only seen him about 6 times. The whole league is a group of friends and none of us have seen or heard from him so there was no way to protest it.

There were no trades vetoed in my league. The only trade even put up for public viewing was a trade invovling Moss for LT and Shockey. We all realized that the one team was a Vikes fan so it wasn't questioned. The worst trade was one chump trading Duckett and Lelie for Staley because he heard that Staley was going to be the #1 RB. It wasn't vetoed, and I am still a little mad at the commish for not bailing me...err...that team out!

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

This trade went through in week 2...McNair for McCaffery
It takes half the league to veto a trade and that didn't happen. Week 2 didn't show the majoe disperaty as it does now but I was hoot'n and holler'n about that one. But you really don't have collusion in week2 and the one owner was just real inexperienced and got taken advantage of.

The worst, or rather funniest, trade I've heard that wasn't vetoed was my friend's. He traded his Garrison Hearst for Priest Holmes after Week 1. Supposedly, the guy was a 9er fan.
