I am the commissioner of a 12 team standard scoring/setup ESPN league (but 6 points for passing TDs, only 1 QB starts), and I need help with a trade that was accepted in our league. Keep in mind that this is a money league (not a ton, $25 buy in).
The trade is as follows:
J. Flacco QB
A. Rodgers QB
Should I veto this trade?
Somethings to consider first. I have spoken to the guy giving up Rodgers (via email). First off, he offered the trade to the Rodgers owner. So the guy getting Rodgers is just like "Flacco for Rodgers...um sure!" The man giving up Flacco is fully aware of what he is doing, and basically is just sick of Rodgers sucking and wants to ship him off ASAP. He of course is selling incredibly low, and I believe could be getting much more than that. But should we veto this trade, just because he isn't getting a good enough return? I don't want to help him with a trade just because he is dumb. He feels Flacco will be better the rest of the year than Rodgers. He also mentioned that if Rodgers wasn't on the un-droppable list he probably would have dropped him. I don't think this man has played in many fantasy leagues.
We have a veto vote in the league, but not many have voted and it requires 7 votes for it to be vetoed. If we don't get 7 votes, should I use Commish power and veto or let it go through?
I hate to veto trades, and I am inclined to just let this go through as he wants to to happen (who am I to say that Flacco won't be better than Rodgers at the end of it all, not likely, but who knows). But I don't want a trade to ruin the integrity of the league. I wish the Rodgers owner would just throw in a WR or something to make it more balanced.
PLEASE ADVISE ON WHAT I SHOULD DO, WHIR!
