It is not right to veto a trade just to prevent a team from getting better. I think what the commissioner did is worse, but he wouldn't even have had to sidestep the veto if you guys didn't veto it in the first place.
I think they cancel each other out.
There's a veto process. If a trade is vetoed, I don't care what the underlying fairness of it was, it was vetoed. I've seen enough shady moves justified on this board on the grounds of, "Once the league is setup, you have no right to complain" to make me ill. But that's all this is.
There is a veto process.
The trade was vetoed.
The trade is therefore vetoed.
Further shaningans to get the trade unvetoed is shady.
Further dirty dealings to keep everying quiet is completely shady.
Sorry: it's just very simple and the answer above is simply wrong.
