This trade was vetoed in a league that I am commissioner in yesterday. 12 team 1pt PPR redraft. Top 6 make the playoffs. Team A is currently in the playoffs while Team B is not. Team A would have received Hakeem Nicks. Team B would've received Nate Washington, Marcedes Lewis, and Baltimore D/ST.
I must add that the owners of the 2 teams in question are brothers and they are both new to fantasy football in a league full of veterans. The veto in our league takes 4 votes and I can see how 4 people thought that the trade was lopsided. Team B was been vocal on the message boards about how the trade shouldn't have been vetoed. How he needed to upgrade his Houston D/ST and how Nate Washington isn't that much of a drop-off from Hakeem Nicks. Everybody in the league knows hes a Ravens fan and HOU hasn't done much points wise the last 3 weeks under our league settings.
He also pointed out that team A would be putting all his eggs in one basket with Eli Manning, Hakeem Nicks, and Victor Cruz and we should let him. I have told both owners to call me and state their case as to how the trade helps both teams but neither has yet to do so. Trade deadline is today. Should I overturn this veto???
