I completely agree here. The only "absolutely ludicrous" thing is your Commish looking at trades based on draft position.

This thread should have ended with this, the first response.

I don't get leagues that veto trades b/c other managers don't like them. None of their business.

Commish veto sounds like sour grapes to me.

This guy does not belong on that position.

Amen. Every manager has their reasons for accepting a trade, even if they are based on overly optimistic projections about a player's performance. Hell, even if they are based on sheer stupidity or irrationality, there is absolutely no reason a trade should be vetoed unless it can be proven that the owners were colluding. No one has a problem when a stupid manager drops a player that shouldn't be dropped (probably because they have the possibility of benefiting from that owners stupidity). They only have a problem with stupid moves when they don't serve their own self-interests. Absolutely ridiculous. You should have your commish read all the posts here.
