OK, first of all this concept of retroactively vetoing a preseason trade because it worked out strongly in favor of one guy is ridiculous... That's what FF is all about -- predicting the performance of a given player during a given week or season... If you correctly predicted that a completely unproven RB was going to end up being better than a formerly all-pro WR, you should be complimented for that, not punished... Ask him this:
"<insert sarcastic tone> OK, so if you switch the trade back around and next week Roethlisberger decides Plax is his favorite WR, and he goes on to put up Randy Moss type numbers, do I get the trade reinstated?"
Now, with regards to the Aaron Brooks affair, I can see many situations where that is a perfectly fair trade... Case in Point:
Team A has:
Manning, Brooks, Carr
Deuce, Fred Taylor, Curtis Martin, Tyrone Wheatley
Team B has:
Ahman, Dom Davis, Thomas Jones, Griffin, Stecker
IN that situation, it would be totally fair and in both team's interests to trade Stecker for Brooks, considering Martin's bye this week....
You can't look at trades in a bubble... The situation is everything...
