He wants a change of scenery? Yeah, when people get tired of Hawaii, they always seem to move to New Jersey.

It's trades such as these that make vetoing a necessary tool to at least insure a league maintains integrity. Even if there's no collusion involved here, it's the type of deal that might cause another owner to simply give up and can therefore corrupt the league.

I am complete against veto's unless collusion or dumping is involved. However- this trade is a joke- I would be shocked if it wasn't veto'd in almost any league. If he wants to move Arod- make the trade more reasonable.

How can anyone veto a trade unless there is some obvious collusion going on? Now, I dont know the particulars of this league but from the original post it seems to me that there isnt any cheating going on here... just some fantasy noob making a bad deal, no reason to veto because someone is stupid. I hate the veto tool because jealous owners will veto anything that threatens their own team regardless if its a legit deal.

I have said it before and will prob have to say it again... Some people do collude but others are just dumb.

I'd veto it in a heartbeat and I hate to veto trades. Unless you have left out some very important information, this trade is way too lopsided to let through and could compromise the integrity of the league.

Yeah im sure thats what they were thinking. Not "this guy is gonna beat the hell out of me now" or "why didnt he send that trade to me" but "i gotta take care of my league"

If there´s no collussion there should be no veto. You have the same chance of getting the better end of deal than the guy that did had. Its just sour grapes

Sour grapes? Hardly. That deal is in no way, shape, or form, even close to fair. If that trade went through in any of my leagues, the league would most likely disband due to the sheer lunacy of anyone thinking it's acceptable.
