I'll try to be less abrasive than the other guys have been in the past: Is there a chance your league will have a trade that you don't run by us here (more or less in the wrong section) because you think it's collusive or "unfair"? Again, not trying to start something, just puzzled :-S

If you're going to post in the comish section, it should be a comish issue. Generally if you have a trade you're unsure about, you need to tell us the context.

Personally I think you're confusing "good/even" with "fair." To get an opinion on a trade's value or evenness, that's DTKW. Post it there.

A "fair" trade is one that both players agree to. If both managers agree to a trade and are consciously trying to improve their team, it is a fair trade.

The only time you should post in the comish section about a trade is if you think a trade is breaking your league's rules.

I'm going to be straight with you - posting like 50 times in a short span, with each post being as short is "player A for player B - fair?" really rubs people the wrong way. For one thing, you give no context, nothing about your league, no rosters, no settings. You're not going to get a quality response that way. Plus there's the fact that you're posting in the wrong forum, have been told that, and continue to do so. If you want real advice, limit yourself to important questions, not something you just want an opinion on. Post a trade (in the right section) that you're really torn on. Give us your thoughts, show us where you're coming from, post the league settings, the rosters, the whole bit. Then you'll get your question answered and the answer might actually be helpful.

I didn't have the time to expound earlier, but since this sums my opinion up to a T, I'll just say "This." ;-D
