I recently had a pretty bad one offered to me. Something like Verlander & I don't remember who for RJ & and a throw in. In a dynasty no less. Anyway I thought about calling him out on it but I then I realized that no good could come of it and if I ever did want to deal with that owner I probably would have a hard time. It's better to laugh it off and reject it than call them out and cause bad blood in league. FB is supposed to be fun so why take one moment of bad judgment and cause an uncomfortable feeling for the rest of the year or longer depending on what kind of league it is.

On the other hand if the same owner was repeatadly sending me ridiculous offers I'd send them a PM letting them know what I thought about it and might threaten to out them.

Were you giving up RJ or getting him? I'd take Verlander over RJ at this point. ;-D

Are you kidding, that's and amazing offer in a dynasty and I can't believe you're complaining about it, let alone not taking it.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I only post complaints If the trade is really horribly unfair. Personally don't believe in Veto unless Collusion is obvious. So the league message board is , to me, the right place to sound off and make a point. Only have had to do so once in 3 years and I wasn't alone.

Quit hi-jacking the thread it was just an example. And yes I would'vebe giving up Verlander, I may be a fool but I'm not a complete idiot.

Generally not. I am more likely to counter with a just as ludicrous proposal back to the other guy to make my point.

We're all close friends in my H2H league, so I will from time to time make a comment. However, I don't name the manager, nor do I name the players involved. I do something like this "Please stop making dumb ass trade offers. Thank you." Or, my favorite things to do is fake like there's big demand for one of my players with hopes of soliciting offers. Like -" Hmm, Arod? I'm not insulted by the offer, but I may need another player thrown in to make it happen." Then I watch how many offers I get for Arod.

I can do all of this because we're all long time friends, however, in my roto league, I only know 3 of the 12 owners, so I don't make a peep there.
