Ummmm, T. Green doesnt match with Pennington right now. Maybe at the beginning of the season it would've been a fair trade, but right now Pennington is one of the top QB's in the league. T. Green clearly isnt. Sure, things could change, but in terms of value right now, its clearly not even.

Stecker and D. Foster could backfire on him, but in terms of value right now, S. Alexander is way better value than both. Thing is someone in last place could've had both of those guys in pickups(if you do last place gets first pickups), and then get one of the top RB's in the league for 2 pickups that could be 1 wk wonders?

I'll give the commish some credit for trying to disguise it but nobody in their right mind would trade away Pennington right now for Green. And i doubt most people would trade away Alexander for 2 unproven temporary 1 wk wonders.

You really need to give more details. If its not a money league who cares, deal with it. If it is a money league get the people in 3rd and 4th place to make a big deal about it too, they should care. Our league has a trade committee that votes. We had BS like this happen before which led to our league putting in all kinds of rules to prevent it.

And you never know. Maybe you will. Hopefully there is justice.


This is the best advice given in this thread.

The Green for Penny trade is about equal longer into the season...

But SA for Stecker and Foster is a little over the edge....

I'd personally complain until I got kicked out...but seran wrap on the toilet seat }:-) ...

Maybe my uncle will think twice next bad trade he makes ;-D

Also, don't quit :-t It's no fun for anyone if you quit, and truthfully I think it's kinda a wussy manuever :-/

dont be a girl!!!! u can t quit especially with the trades u mentioned. they are a LITTLE one sided but not that much to tell you the truth. maybe that other guy believes hes getting the better deal.

i had a similar situation happen to me a week ago. the commish and another guy traded Correy Dillon and drew bennett for Ashlie Lelie and Tyrone wheately. yes this trade seemed very one sided but after talking to both of them a while it seemed like it was a genuine trade. You cant protect stupid ppl from themselves i guess. Its there choice to trade away there good players.

Why quit? Shaun Alexander could get hurt, and then he looks like a sucker fool. Then you can just mock him. Also, the Green for Pennington isn't bad at all. I don't see your complaint there.

Simple solution:

Make fun of the guy who traded Alexander for the rest of his fantasy football career. My buddy in one of my leagues ended up trading Hines Ward for Jerome Bettis and Jerry Porter after week 1, and he is already to the point in week 4 that he is begging for mercy to stop the humiliation. We made him change his team name to Dumb and Dumber to end the harassment.
