That other owner is an a**.

How could it possibly be cheating? You don't even know the other guy. Based on that post, I'd be tempted to dump my team and quit and finish off the entire league.

When would you want it to be? Most of them are August 13th.

Anyways, you absolutely have a right to be furious. At the same time, you shouldn't bother with Yahoo! Public Leagues. Next year get a league going through the Classifieds forum here.

As soon as I read this, I thought, "This must be a public league." I see that I was right.

If there's a lesson to be learned here it's to stay away from any free/public league.

Sorry this happened to you, though. It's a very fair trade. :-/

I just read that post the guy made on your board. You know what? You should post a link to this thread on your board. In fact, tell those guys to sign up here and comment in this thread.

We'll put our collective feet up their collective rear end - gently, of course.

;-D :-D

The only problem is he might not want to give up this link to the entire league....I'm the only one who knows about this board in MY league and I'm pretty damn sure it's the reason I'm 1.5 games out of first place (and with this weeks records right now I'm looking at a .5 lead) in it.

But back on topic, wow. That's all I can say. Wow. Some people are just ***holes.

You're in a league with some jerks. or maybe some just over-reaacted and can be reasoned with... vetoing a trade just because it hurts your chances of beating one of the guys in the trade is something my league, 8 years running now would never do that. We bitch and moan and trash talk all the time, but we wouldn't veto a trade that makes sense to both parties. We might try and make a counter offer before it gets approved, or pull off a similiar trade to counteract the trade, but it's a Gentlemen's agreement that trades go through unless it's collusion, and our league wouldn't do it anyway. We'll try and get the getter end of the deal, deffinitely, but not collusion.
