My main league has a 1 day waiver window and I think this is a great length. It rewards those who are active daily, and are on top of things but the waiver system is still in place and you don't have to wait a few days like other leagues.

As others have said, not having waivers is just plain crazy. Learn to use and manage your waiver claims and then while you'll still miss out occasionally to someone with a higher priority, you'll still land some helpful players. ;-D

This isn't exactly a "fair" trade. D. lee has largely gotten buy off of one amazing year. Yes i agree i think hes a great hitter, just by watching him you know he has great potential. However I have ALOT more confidence in howard to come close to repeating his numbers from last year than Dlee to repeat his numbers of two years ago. Kinsler is not a huge upgrade over Upton given upton's added position eligibility and ability to steal more bases than kinsler. I wouldn't necessarily say it vetoable but its not exactly fair and i think peopl ehave an argument to veto. Waivers are definatelya necessity, and i find it makes things more exciting sometimes cause you never know if you are going to get the player or not. If you dont like the veto button go with commish vetoes, it will probably do you better than no vetoes at all...

I'm completely in favor of horrible deals being vetoed (that's right, throw your tomatoes), but this trade doesn't come close to being veto-worthy. But that doesn't make the original post any less bizarre. Going off on a waiver process? Crazy...

1 day waivers seem the best. Like said above it encourages guys to keep up with the league and rewards those who do keep up. Also it allows you to get your guys quicker than having to wait around for like 3 days to get your guys.

Waivers is the fairest thing that exists. It also has different strategies. It's a great thing. As far as trades, It should be the teams that have the right to veto.
As far as your trade that was rejected, be thankful. I think Lee will have a better year than Howard.
