Now, I want to start by saying that I have never been one to veto trades. I'm a firm believer in not vetoing unless in the case of collusion. I just wanted to gather some opinions based on the evidence below on whether this is textbook collusion or not. I believe that bad trades mess with the competitive balance of the league and spit in the face of the work some of us put into building teams, and I want to set it straight. Am I wrong to smell collusion?
Team A receives Ryan Braun, Ervin Santana, Brian Wilson
Team B receives Alex Rios, Paul Konerko, Brandon Inge, Jose Valverde
This is a league with some guys from my old high school, and I know for a fact that both of these managers are good friends outside of fantasy. Team A (receiving Braun) has a history of having one-sided trades vetoed due to unscrupulous actions over the three years we have run this league. Team B (trading Braun) didn't come to the draft and hadn't shown activity since he signed up until he suddenly traded Braun out of the blue. Team B also does not benefit from this trade, as it leaves an empty P roster spot and adds to an alread stacked offense, yet felt the need to make it.
Collusion? Should I email the commish or stand pat? Opinions are greatly appreciated, thanks!! Leave your link
