Manning trade...

Postby Carnac » Mon Sep 05, 2011 2:09 pm

Late last night a trade was made

Team A gives Peyton Manning and Brandon Jacobs
Team B gives Phillip Rivers and Marshawn Lynch

Team A has made a couple of moves in the past (that were blocked) trying to trade injured players, just after the news broke to rookie teams. Team B is a first year player in our 11 year 12 team league.

Should this trade be allowed?

A few of us in the league don't think so. Anyone have an opinion?

Seems sketch. Not sure I would let that go through. First thing I would think is collusion.

tough call since he's new, but letting it stand would teach him a valuable lesson

I'm a first year player and I, personally, would let it stand. Even as a new guy I do my research and if someone is proposing a trade there is always a reason why. They are either weak in an area and want someone I have to fill OR they're trying to dump players like they are here. With all the Peyton Injured news plastered everywhere now I would let it go and hope that he can fend for himself.

Unless you suspect Collusion its an approved trade (and I don't think Peyton will play a down this year). Take Peyton's injury away and this is a pretty equal trade. Hopefully he gets a lot of slack and peer pressure from the other teams in the league about his decision. Honestly, I think my guys would probably petition to vote him out for next season for not being active enough.
