A deal is a deal IMO. If you are really worried about him being upset offer the trade back but the deal was made and everyone thought it was fair. I'd let it be if you are happy with it.

I'm happy with it and I think I'll just stick to my guns. I wasn't trying to be a puss or anything, I just don't want to make decisions that might be PERCEIVED to be in my best interest because I am commish, ya know? Anyways, I agree with all of you (obviously) and I'll just have to lay the smack down when the call comes, which it will haha.

it was accepted. that is unacceptable to re-neg on it after the fact.

I would tell him the deal stays regardless if you are the commissioner or not.

If people wanted to veto it they had their chance.

Move on, and give the other guy a kleenex and tell him to stop his crying.

Seriously, if he complains, (I don't know why more people don't do this) just show him this thread.

None of us know anything about either of you, so we're all unbiased, and we have unanimously agreed that he's out of line.

Come on be a man. You two went through with a deal, then he/she cried and you cried along with her and vetoed against it? If you want your guys back then trade back, if not, the players are yours. FF is a competition. Ha what if you were playing B-Ball and you took a terrible shot, could you whine to the other team and get a redo? NO. Tell him to zip it or leave.

I think this guy is being bit of a moron if he is insisting he wants this trade back...


McNabb > Brady : but not by that much...

A. Johnson > Walker : Sure Walker's had a couple of big weeks, but with Davis out Johnson is DEFINITELY the better option...

Alexander > Lewis : With no legal issues you could make a case for Lewis being better, but they're closer to equal, and WITH legal issues, Alexander is clearly the better option...


IMO, this guy made a very good sell high trade, here... I don't see what he is bitching about...

I agree with everyone else. The trade should stand. I don't understand what he's complaining about anyway. This is a very even trade.

I would start by saying that I think ti si fair, although mcnabb is a better option than brady and I don't think it is that close. not a knock on brady at all though. mcnabb is tearing it up, and their schedule doesn't have a lot of imposing defenses on it.

All that said, there is another consideration here. Even if you wanted to give him his players back -- you shouldn't. I think it would look terrible, and set a precident.

People might think you were sharing players too. just a thought.

You might be trying to be polite but it is not ethical to do such a thing.
Analogy: I go to the casino and bet on a horse. After the race I want to change my bet. The result would be they lock me in the nut house and throw the key away.
Lets get real. If you wanted to trade back then go for it. However why would you trade in the first place? Both better get your shit togethr
