I'm the league commish, and have been so for the past two years. It's composed of mainly family, a couple friends and some friends of friends. I had a trade accepted where I was giving up Halladay, Oswalt, and Kemp for Miguel Cabrera, B.J. Upton, and Floyd. Not that I thought I was getting the better end of the deal or not, but I was pleased with the trade since it allowed me to acquire Cabrera (the best player in the deal I think).
Anyways, I set up the league so that 4 out of 12 managers had to veto a trade for it not to go through, we've had numerous trades go through that were more lopsided than that, but for some reason this one got vetoed. The other guy in the trade was angry and posted a message on the league board that the trade was fair, it should not have been vetoed, and vetoes should only be used when collusion is obvious. I agree and while we're already trying to get the same identical trade through again, as commish I thought it was my responsibility and right to demand that those who vetoed the trade post some kind of explanation why they thought the trade should not go through. I even mentioned that posting something like "the trade is unfair" isn't acceptable, and I am threatening to force the trade through and even change to veto power to myself if this continues.
Should I suck it up, just let the trade try and go through again or am I justified in my actions? None of the vetoers has posted yet, I even sent an email telling people I want their responses by WED 8 PM since that is when the trade should have gone through. Am I being unreasonable, power hungry or just whining about a trade that got overruled when I was the one who set up league veto?
