Not to my knowledge. I commished a league that had some vetoing issues....there were basically two factions within the league and the one faction wouldn't allow the other to push any trade through if they thought it was helping one team too much (in their opinion). I couldn't prove it was them though.

Yeah, this is why I don't let teams vote. You almost always have guys vote against every trade.

Almost laughed when I read this. We have had 2 trades vetoed in the last 5 years and have league vote. Private league and all played together for about 11 years.

How much power do you want?

we've had 4 trades proposed so far this year and all of them have been vetoed. The last one was Weeks for Sanchez. So yeah, we have a problem

Unless the majority of your league members care first about the league's success over their own team's success, then you'll always have a problem when you allow owners to veto trades... which is 100% of the time in my experience.

My advice is to have 2 other mature owners serve as co-commissioners with the primary commish to make decisions. The commish has the final say, but the other two weigh in. That said, as a commissioner, I seldom veto a trade unless there is obvious collusion. If there's obvious stupidity, let it roll.
