These two trades really can't be compared because they are two very different situations.
1) The first trade was agreed to by 2 owners, ad then the rest of the league had an opportunity to veto it if they felt it was unfair.
2) If I understand correctly, the league owners are acting as the defacto manager for a team (presumably for a manager that ignored his team and was ejected from the league). In this case managers are trying to decide whether or not it is in the team's best interest to accept a trade in the first place. This is a completely different process than trying to decide whether or not to veto a trade. There are many times when I look at a trade and think that i would never have offered/accepted it (which is the decision being made in trade #2), but I also decide that it is not unfair and, therefore, should not be vetoed (which is the decison being made in option #1).
With all that said. I agree that trade #1 was a poor trade. It certainly could have been vetoed, and MAYBE should have been vetoed. But this late in the season (only approx 1/3 of the season left) people start making trades and overpaying for certain players based upon their needs in specific categories. If, for example, the guy who traded away Wright is running away with HR's but really needs SB's, or if he's overloaded at 3B but just lost a MI to injury, the trade might make more sense. So I also understand why it might not have been vetoed. (For the record, I believe that far to many trade are vetoed in fantasy leagues and I'm glad to see that a trade like this got through the veto process)
Re: the 2nd trade, there is no way I take that trade if I'm Team B. But it is probabaly a more even trade than the 1st one (at least without knowing the specific needs of the teams in each trade), and I wouldn't even consider vetoing it if it were accepted.
But most importantly , what happened with the 1st trade really has nothing to do with what happens with the 2nd trade, since they are different types of decisions being made by the league....you're trying to compare apples and oranges.
Let me guess....you are Team A in Trade #2 and you are upset that the league wont give you Kemp, even though some other guy got Wright?
