Commissioner help! Collusion or fair trade?R.Wayne 4 Deuce??

Postby gatorman1122 » Wed Sep 29, 2004 5:49 pm

A trade was accepted this afternoon. It was Reggie Wayne for Deuce McAlister? Is this fair and acceptable?

Not fair IMO. It's not the worst I've seen, but I think Deuce deserves a better WR than Wayne at this point, even though Wayne has been lighting it up.

Deuce should be back sooner than expected and even if he's not, he'll still be back for a good portion of the season and down the stretch for fantasy.

Seems fair enough. Deuce is out a few more weeks and Wayne just blew up. I'd rather have Deuce if all the decent Rb's are are gone from the wire.

Who knows maybe Wayne is the next Torry Holt and Harrison is relegated to an aged Isaac Bruce status (Harrison and Bruce= same age). That's not my personal opinion, but it might be this other owner's. IF Deuce was healthy then obviously this trade would be a lot more questionable, but as it stands I think it's perfectly acceptable and should not be vetoed.

Nothing wrong with this trade. Deuce won't be playing for at least 3 to 4 more weeks. I guess he decided to sell low, and Reggie Wayne has been tearing it up. He could have the next big WR on his hands now.

I don't think it should be vetoed either, if that's what you got from my post above. I just thought it's a little lopsided and the other owner bit at it 'cause Wayne's on fire.

I didn't post above, but it really depends on if the guy needs Deuce when he gets back.

Yeah, I did say it was unfair and still stand by that. I didn't read into it enough though to see what the situations of both teams were, that's why I posted again. I thought from the get-go that the guy trading Deuce would most likely need Deuce when he comes back, but I didn't know the specifics.

This trade should stand. I don't think it is very smart of the guy giving away Duece, but if he needs help now, he needs help now. Bottom line, this trade is a bad one, but does not cross the line into collusion.
