I would add "sabotage" to the list as well. If you're really worried about roster dumping, then yeah, moving the trade deadline up a bit should help combat that. Assuming you've got 14 weeks of regular season action, if you set it to Week 8, that should still give anyone with a losing record a shot at the playoffs with a trade. Once week 9 or 10 hits, any team that is abysmal (1 or 2 wins) really has no hope for the rest of the season, and they might be motivated to dump their team.
Generally speaking, I'm a big fan of letting most trades fly, unless one of the things above is involved. But this sounds like a clear case of roster dumping, which IMO should get a veto.
