HELP A COMMISH OUT ASAP PLEASE!!!!

Postby uucrook3d » Mon Apr 17, 2006 3:56 pm

ok so i am the commish of a 12 team h2h league with friends. we are all active and knowledgable fantasy owners. we have a commish veto policy and it was made abundantly clear at the start that no trades would be vetoes unless there was collusion or so bad that it hurt the integrity of the league. now i just completed a trade that people are complaining about. is this trade vetoable???

michael young and krod

for

unit, marcus giles, and matt holliday

thanks for any help. i will check back after i get off work tonight. thanks again guys. hopefully i can post this on the board one way or the other. thanks again

Doesn't look like collusion to me. I wouldn't veto it.

no its not a vetoable trade.. you can make arguments on each side depending on the teams of each person.. vetoing trades is not to stop people from makin bad decisions, its to prevent cheating

He knows it's not collusion...he made the trade.

I don't see what the complaints are about. If someone needed pitching then it's not that bad.

I don't think this should be vetoed. The way I see it:

RJ > K-Rod
Young > Giles

The difference between Young and Giles is probably greater, but then throwing Holliday in there balances it out. There's no way this is veto-able.

I'm guessing people think the team receiving Unit/Giles/Holliday is coming out on top but I had to look at it for a minute first. IMO Young is the best player in that trade.

There is no way I would veto that trade.

Trade looks ok to me; for example a trade just went down in my league, didn't get vetoed, because there was no collusion:

Louis Gonzalez and Rob Cano for Alfonzo Soriano

Does that trade look fair...no...do I wish I could veto it?...yes. The trade was not vetoed. One owner just happended to be a looney Yankee fan.

Ouch. Next thing you know there will be 12 more trades like that done before all-star break. League is basically unplayable by then.
