fantasy ethic question

Postby PlayingWithFire » Tue Mar 14, 2006 7:36 pm

What would you think if in a non-keeper.

A contender is making a (fair) trade with a mathmatically eliminated team at the end of the year?

I don't see why that's a problem. Should eliminated teams be banned from competing?

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.

well, what's the difference between 11th place and 10th place, some would say, in a 12 teamer?

We are having a 'most improved in the second half' award this year to try to keep people into it a bit more. ;-D

what if it's with 1 week left to play and there is nothing more than the difference between 10th or 9th place in it for the non-contender? :-?

Would you be upset if you were the team still in contention and he was trading with you?

This is why leagues place trade deadlines. It prevents a fire sale to the contenders at the end of the season.

If your league does not have a deadline in place, then what they are doing is fully within the rules.
