Would you veto?

Postby MPappadato » Thu Sep 15, 2011 6:06 pm

Team A trades Chris Johnson to Team B for Ahmad Bradshaw and Cinn DEF. Team A has Pitt D.

Normally I am in the "DO NOT VETO" camp, but what amounts to a 1 for 1 deal involving players of the same position 1 week after we drafted, when Team A had 3 different shots in the draft to get Bradshaw, passed all three times, and one of those times took CJ instead, smells funny. Team A has been rarely active in years past, often forgetting to sub out bye week players or start breakout stars who are on his bench (Blount sat on his bench all year last year, Slaton sat on his bench during his breakout year, etc.) Team A is good friends with Team B, and doesn't know anyone else in the league.

Does 1 for 1 at same position so soon after draft alter your thinking and make a veto? Or would you let em play?

Thanks for your responses.

Stupid trade for sure, but not anywhere near the realm of veto-worthy IMO. No signs of provable collusion, and you can't stop a trade just cause one guy slightly takes advantage of his less-knowledgeable/dopey friend IMO :-?

Agreed. And then give his team to someone who actually cares next year. You said he's been negligent in the past, including letting Blount sit on his bench last year - this one is actually on you and your league mates for letting a moron like that back in the following year.

You play with stupid/unattentive people, you see trades like this. All the time.
