My reasoning for this was that because not everyone in the league knows one another, there isn't necessarily a way to negotiate a trade.
For example, if I'm looking to fill a hole a 2B, maybe I send out a bunch of offers. A few fliers, a few reasonable offers, etc. I don't want to be held to accepting the first trade that gets accepted.
In this circumstance though, when this rule or detail hasn't been previously decided upon, I think it's commonly accepted that once a deal has been "accepted" it's final.


Remind me not to play in a league with you. You send out trade offers that you never intend to honor..................Not very good.

This rule is sure to create more problems than any good its going to do. about the only way this should happen is if 1 of the players gets seriously inj during the voting period; and the commish should be the only 1 to rule on it, not the traders. you've created a loophole that will almost certainly backfire on you
