Is this collusion?

Stinks.
Of course, the second guy could just be an idiot. You should contact him and get his thoughts on the trade, as well as getting other league members thoughts.
I rarely call out the veto, but in this case it's probably appropriate. Veto, and if it passes keep a sharp eye out for similar crap. If it happens again and the rest of league doesn't call-out the commish on it, I'd be tempted to give up the $ and drop out.

That first trade stinks, and there are only two possibilities. First, they are in collussion. Second, one of them is so stupid that they would not even be fun to play with. Either way, I think you should look for another league while there is still time.
Vengeance is mine.

No one could be that stupid, so Im thinking this is collusion. Especially with money involved.

The commish says the trade was proposed to him.

The person that proposed the trade said they did it because Taylor and Pennington are injury liabilities and he really wanted Chris Chambers and he thinks Foster will be the starter by week 4 or 5.

Basically they have both tried to justify the trade which is ridiculous. No one else is the league has commented on it at all so I am basically over it.

This is why I don't usually play in leagues where I don't know everyone.

Wow - sorry to hear that you're all alone on this one in your league. Here's hoping that things don't continue like this all season and it still turns out to be a fun league for you.

Of course the commish is going to say it was offered to him. Does anyone else know of this other person in the league? That is starting to sound fishy...
