The problem enters when the commissioner accidently vetos the trade when he's looking at the stats a day before the trade is supposed to clear. He posts, saying it was an accident, to put the trade back up and he'll put it right through. Unfortunately, now the guy I'm trading with has changed his mind, and he doesn't want the trade anymore.
I'm really frustrated, but I don't feel like there's a lot I can do unless the guy I'm trading with decides to play fair. Any ideas?
Typical cold feet. I'm not sure there's anything you can do. I don't know if the commish can initiate trades between two different teams, but that would probably be the only way to do it unless you shame him into accepting it by letting him have it on the message board. Keep us posted though, it's an interesting predicament.
I was in a league in which a guy agreed to a deal. It was a 2 for 1 deal and he had to drop a player. I was commish at the time and asked me if he could switch the player he wanted to drop. So I vetoed the deal and then reoffered him the deal. He could then switch the player he wanted. Well I was making out pretty good on the whole thing and another member of the league noticed the deal had been vetoed and offered the guy a better offer. Well that is just tough sh... in my opinion. I was in a really tough spot though because I did not want to abuse my power as commish. The other member is really my arch rival and was doing it just to piss me off, he succeeded. The guy I was dealing with though was being a pain in the ass about the whole thing, I had to threaten to lock his roster and agree to give him another player before I got the guy I wanted. Really was crap. You might have to do the same thing.
Your commish should be able to automatically put trades through, they almost always have that power, he should and has to, no options -- thats inexcusable, and the guy with cold feet aught to be beat with a stick
Man, I feel your pain. My commish is a little happy with the veto button too, but I don't think his was accidental.
I personally would post an announcement publicly in the league explaining exactly what happened and requesting the other guy to reconsider and re-accept the trade. I would stand up for myself and make some noise. You're the only one losing in this situation and you're the one getting screwed by your commish's booboo and the other guy's crummy ethics.
I'd complain to the commish. Cold feet should definetely not stop a deal from going through.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.
It was a done deal until the commish accidentally hit the wrong button. I'd make the commish put it through even though the other guy wants to back out now. He already agreed to it and accepted it.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
