Anyone else in a league like this?

Postby costag » Tue Jun 06, 2006 11:27 am

This is driving me nuts. A yahoo 16 team private league that I am in has vetoed 17 out of 23 trade proposals. Granted, a couple were ridiculus offers but come on 74% of the trades shot down!!!!

It's no fun when you play with a bunch of morons.

Are you in a league where the league voes. Because from my view then trades would just vetoed because a guy doesn't want a contender to get better. Vetoing trades is stupid.

League votes.

I am in first place and had a trade going with the 2nd place team and that got shot down.

I thought it was pretty fair.

for
his Chipper Jones and Ryan Demspter

It's just not that, managers seemed to be shooting them down for the hell of it. It sucks!

The problem with them all getting vetoed like that is that all they have to do is click a button. They don't have to say why they're vetoing the trade. We made it so on Yahoo, I, the commish am the only one who can veto a trade, not by vote. I do not veto the trades though, it's still a league vote in this manner: If you want to veto a trade, you must post on the MB why you want to veto the trade. If we got the minimum votes (5 in a 12 team league for us), I, the commish would veto the trade.

I had one guy post that he wanted to veto because he wanted one of the players in the trade so he vetoed. Not a reason to veto. This way is harder, but it forces people to explain their reason for vetoing and filtering out stupid reasons like I had just mentioned.

Best way of dealing with vetos I've heard of. ;-D
