The league?
Or the owner accepting the trade?
How is the initial deal proposed?

Im not exactly sure what your rules are trying to accomplish.
Im all for rooting out collusion if thats the goal, but I can think of many more effective other ways to do so.
It seems like the rule would result in rewarding lazy owners and dragging out trade negotiations.
I cant come up with any ways that it would improve a league.


The owner trading the player decides. Unless you have experience with this system, I would describe the difference as being like the difference between an auction draft and a snake draft. The auction draft takes longer but everyone has a shot and so no one can complain they didn't have a fair shot and people can price enforce on trades to avoid league altering windfalls that are the subject of many posts on this site (including the OP's).

It is a fundamentally different system that is more of an open market than a back room dealing type of model. The analogies aren't perfect but the FAAB system would be another potential comparison. A lot of the criticisms are the same (if we move to FAAB then I will be punished for doing the hard work and some lazy bidding owner arriving after I would have grabbed the FA will be rewarded just because he bid more, etc.). The system is fundamentally different from most leagues so it is tough to evaluate without having used it, IMO.
