It certainly is an INTERESTING trade. It doesn't really sound unfair, but the person trading away Moss is crazy. Taylor is a million times the back that Barber is, but he's never healthy. Tim Brown is a couple of levels behind Randy, and I'd rather have J. Wilkins on my team than Antonio Freeman. I wouldn't veto it, but it certainly isn't what you usually expect from a trade.

i would want to be getting moss but like they said its not uneven enough to ban the trade either because theres no real talent going with moss.

When you size it up,Taylor for Wilkins (now I know about his injuries,but he's one of the best backs in the league when healthy),Moss for Brown (Brown's good,but doesn't have near the amount of talent as Moss),Freeman for Barber (could be the only fair part of the trade.)

Giving up Moss could be a costly mistake for Team 2,but their also getting Taylor for a kicker!It's not bad enough to try and veto it,but I would like to know both sides reasoning behind it.

I have to admit, if somebody offered me that package for Moss, I'd be very tempted. Whether I'd accept or not depends on the rest of my team's roster, but it's certainly an offer worth considering.

With so many question marks surrounding Taylor and Freeman, this could fall either way. If somebody wants to take this gamble, that's their decision. There's no foul play here.
