You are not the judge of how they want to run their own team. They are. If you have heard however that something shifty is going on, then you have to decide on that basis.
Im so sick of reading this crap on why the only reason a veto should happen. NOBODY IS GOING TO ADMIT TO CHEATING! EVER. You cant prove someone is cheating unless they come out with it can you? And they arent going to are they? NO and NO. The reason people are given the option to veto is to keep the integrity of the league by keeping teams in competition. So that means if a trade of Arod for Vizquel if both teams agree to it, its ok? Maybe the owner of Arod loves the Indians and doesnt care about what Arod can do because he wants to have his favorite players for his fantasy team. That trade should be allowed then? Its not cheating because one team wants something the other has and will do it no matter what. You cant veto it then with that stupid reasoning of - no cheating, no veto. So then you let one team just have the number player at every position because, if he's not cheating, no matter what the trades are, it should go through and everyone else is left battling a team that cant be beat? What fun is that? I say if someone feels a trade is grossly unfair it should be vetoed. Sure, some trades are gonna be a little lopsided to one team more than another. But when you have WAY out there trades.. like i saw a post yesterday Millwood/Prior for Mantei,Trachsel,K.Wells and tons of people said its not a vetoable trade. It is too.
You have to keep teams fair otherwise what fun is it battling for second place because someone got Arod for Vizquel??
We have a team in my league that did that. He loves Boston. So he gave away everything he had to get almost every Redsox player he could. He did most of his trading with one team in our 10 team league.(He happen to have a lot of Redsox players) The team he traded with to get his Redsox players wont be beat this season for the title. Listen to the lineup he got because another team decided he didnt care about the trades as long as he got his Redsox players.
Remind you.. 10team H2H Points based scoring.
The only players on this guys team from Draft day are Schmidt,Mantei. Everyone else he got from basically the guy who loves Redsox players. No cheating involved.. he just happend to have a lot of Redsox players and so to trading they went. Now this is the lineup he has in a 10 team league. What fun is fighting for 2nd place? Those of you out there that think 2nd place is fun, then you let your league allow way lopsided trades to go through.. AS LONG AS YOU MAKE SURE THERE'S NO CHEATING THO!
