Was this trade "unfair"?

Postby TheBeaker » Sun Oct 07, 2012 10:49 am

I traded Aaron Rodgers, Rob Gronkowski and Pierre Thomas for Andy Dalton, Ray Rice and Brent Celek. After the trade went through the guy was all mad at me saying he didnt mean to accept and it was an unfair trade. I cant see it.

BTW I actually think I gave up more than I should have but I had Roethlisburger as my other QB and Jimmy Graham as my starting TE already so I think the trade worked out for me well? (Ill take opinions on that as well... im new at this)

I'm far from an expert but it seems fair to me. If Rodgers gets back to form the other guy might actually come out ahead...

I definitely thought that the trade helped both teams...

I think he ended up WAY better off as he dropped Pierre Thomas and ended up picking up Trent Richardson off waivers ahead of me lol

Richardson was in free agency? 8-o

At first the trade looks one-sided on paper with you recieving a top 3 RB and an up-and-coming QB for a top 3 TE and a top 3 QB. But since you also have TE Graham on your roster you traded from a surplus at one position and upgraded another position with the addition of Rice. This trade favors you now.

Why didn't the other owner make an announcement that he made a mistake when he hit the accept button until waiting till now? Unfair or not, the other owner made his own bed and now has to lie in it. But this trade is not unfair on paper. Just leans to one side a little bit . . . . . ;-)

Wait till the season ends. Then compare points. You upgraded your RB position and you lost very little at the TE position. You downgraded at QB but Dalton is no slouch. I like your side to date and long term.

on paper, you offered a little too much and it would be either even or unfair to you depends on the scoring rule.

However, the other team is the one who is complaining unfair trade which i can only assume maybe it's a very small league (like 6-8man size), where elite player worth much more than top-tier player and boost Rice's value and even out the trade, which explained why T.Richardson is on WW and you have 2 best TE+best QB (pre-season) in the league.

maybe other team still has one of the top tier QB like Brady, Brees, Newton, Stafford or P.Manning and can probably still pick up RGIII on WW? meaning Rodger is not that big of a upgrade on his QB. same logic apply to TE.

in short, trade is fine

lol that would make sense but It's a 10 team run of the mill standard league. His other QB is Ryan Fitzpatrick. I have no Idea why Richardson was on the wire. It was the same play if picked up Steven Ridley the week before.. just an odd league.
thanks for the responses byw
