There has often times been complaints about why people never trade and always seem to veto trades. This was a respsonse from a league member after he vetoed a trade that was OFFERED to me where I get TO and I give up ROy WIlliams. Obviously I accepted even if ROy has been hot, but this was definately not collusion as I know the person who offered the trade and he never gives up in a league even if he is in last place, he just loves to make moves, and I dont think it is grossly unfair.
"the reason people veto trades is because they dont like having a good team making their team better. And besides me and dave, you have the 3rd best team, and by getting TO that would make your team that much better. So why would i want an unfair trade to begin with go through to help your team that could potentially make your team better then my team? Just trying to give u the reason why some people wouldnt like it, but hey, if u want to accept unfair trades and all then go right ahead, if it makes u feel that much better about your team and all"
I responded with with the following quote:
"If someone offered me a trade that is going to help my team, I am going to do it. IW ould not accept anything like Mcmichael for LT or something, but williams for TO was whatever. Everone should know marty does ont try to lose leagues on purpose so he had a reason for making it. If everyone ele has a problem with someone else making their team better, they need to stoi pplaying fantasy sports, becasue that is horse*^&*. Youcant veto t rades just because it makes their team better. I someone makes a stupid move they need to learn from it, its part of playing sports. The ONLY reasons a trade should be vetoed is if it is cheating or insanely infair like Mcmichael for LT. I am severly tired with people who veto trades because they make someone else's team better. That is the more retarded thing in the world. Go out and make your team better then, lol. I have worked really hard trying to be fair and initiate trading and general communication between league members ove rthe last couple years, but I think it may be worth moving on to a different group who isnt so down uptight about vetoing trades because it might make someone else's team better than theirs"
Sorry about the long rant, but I just had to get it off my chest to someone other than the guys in my league who dont like a team getting better. And if I am in the wrong for being a little tired of this crap, then please tell me.
