Trade Policy

Postby jebatzel » Fri Mar 26, 2004 12:07 am

I still haven't told my league what my trade policy was yet.

I have the league set as Commissoner control of the trade.

Its a 10 team head to head league.

I am thinking there are 2 ways I can do it.

What ever I say goes (not everyone might like this one)

Or I can tell everyone if I get enough requests for a veto I will do one.

So maybe I have to have 5 people contact me.
(yahoo has button next to trade that will generate e-mail to me)

Trade period is 5 days, so it should be long enough for everyone to view the trades.

And then there is my option to allow the trade right away. I might want to reserve this for when one team has an injury.

What do you guys think?

How well do you know the other members - they may resent you having sole power. Also you set yourself up for accusations of favortism and interference - let the others vote but retain the power to settle disputes if they can't agree or where you see a flagrant disregard.

go for a hybrid.

if it is in the realm of fair, or if a mildyl disadvtantegous trade was intitiated by the team getting the worst of it, let it through.

ridiculous trades go to league vote.

this way you ahve the power of what is ridiculous, but you have the league overall to oversee overall fairness?

5 days is more than enough - i'd even consider going less unless your owners aren't very active.

5 days kinda sucks if you have to set your lineups weekly. I would make it 2 days at the most. Make it where people vote, 5 to get it rejected- if they dont want it to go through.. in which time you have to make the choice based on arguements from those objecting. Or have it just automatically shut down if it gets 5 votes that way you're not involved and people dont think there is bias in anyway.

I would just take the power...and don't bother using it. We had one guy last year who was getting romped on and sent an email to everyone saying 'I will trade my whole team, make me offers and I will take the best offer at each position, guaranteed'.

It sounded kind of fishy and the guy who got the most of his guys appeared to have gotten a boost from it but neither he nor 'Osama' contended after that and the other guys helped some of the other teams too. The team that won though didn't get ANYBODY from that. It didn't really matter in the big scheme of things.

I don't think that, unless people are colluding or something, there's any reason to veto trades. While there are a couple people who are less involved in the fiendish trashtalking, the smack is a MAJOR, secondary goal for just about everybody and there's too much at risk THERE , on top of their $10, to do anything really underhanded or collusory (???) w/ our group. We all work together and knew each other beforehand anyway.
