this is what is wrong with yahoo public leagues

The trade offer proposed in Yahoo Public 30820 (30820) has been accepted.

There will now be a 2 day waiting period before the trade is processed. Go to your team page and click on the trade details link to review the trade. If you feel this trade is unfair, send an official protest to the league.

Just hope you have enough active owners to reject the trade.

When a trade is truly unfair, such as this one, you can write to Yahoo to complain about collusion between owners. It's under the Help section I think.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Yahoo won't do anything about it, besides write you back a form letter. You will need to get a couple other active owners to veto this trade with you. Problem probably is that this person has more than one team in your league and will probably keep attempting to make trades like this in the hope that there will be a 2 day window when there aren't four owners online to veto it. Good luck... hope you joined some other leagues.

yep collusion sucks

However, yahoo does do something about a portion of these situations. Last year we had "two" owners booted after complaining of collusion. Yahoo just looked at their IP addresses, and then kicked them both out.

Howerver, that just introduced another problem -- two dead teams. Public leagues are almost always a problem, that happens all the time

Doesn't work like that. Yahoo checks IP addresses before letting you join a public league, if there is already an owner who joined under the same IP address, it won't let you join that league. The way around that comes if you have two computers, each with a unique IP address. Yahoo needs to come up with a better way to determine if one person has more than one team in a league.
