Commish threatening to veto trade, Please weigh in.

Postby GardnerRunsRampant » Fri Oct 12, 2012 2:21 pm

Normally stick to the baseball side, but here goes...

12 team PPR league.

Team A is 3-2 - has wealth of WR's, wants to upgrade at RB.
Team B is 1-4 - Wants to upgrade multiple positions, specifically QB and add more flex options.

Team B proposes the trade and Team A accepted the offer:

Team A sends Ben Roethlisberger/Frank Gore/Kenny Britt and receives Arian Foster/Tony Romo.
Team B sends Arian Foster/Tony Romo and receives Ben Roethlisberger/Frank Gore/Kenny Britt.

Commissioner has complete veto power. Both Team A and Team B have expressed their desire for this trade to go through to the commissioner. The commissioner informed both teams that he is going to take the weekend to decide on the fairness of the trade.

I have just one question for this forum. Should this trade be vetoed? I appreciate all of your opinions, and will offer my opinion to anyone who answers and has an issue of their own.

The Commish has no business deciding what's fair - everyone values player's differently and a lot depends on team needs.

If there is no collusion or cheating, all trades should go through.

There's no reason to veto that trade.

If commish vetoes, I would leave the league next year. Absurd. People don't understand what the veto is for.
