Aside from that reversing is the way to go here, making a trade then leaving? Seems obvious whats going on. A big FU on the way out and some help to an owner they like.
If an owner paid and traded with another owner that paid way before leaving I would let it stand and only refund $ if I got another team buyer at full price. Dont want to penalize the owner who made the trade. But the proximity kills it here.
Hope it goes/is going well.
I ended up overturning the deal. The owner who had benefited from the trade threatened to leave if I did this, but I went ahead and did it because I discussed it with every owner in the league and ultimately they all agreed on overturning. The owner who had benefited ended up not leaving the league, and since then the issue has blown over.
I informed the league members of two things from here on out: 1) If this scenario happens again the trade gets reversed no questions asked, and 2) I will be collecting league fees for the next season right away, so teams have teeth in the game before they make any moves. Reading this from your first post really swayed me towards doing that, thanks for the suggestion.
Crisis averted here it seems, thanks for the advice everyone!
