I've never been in a league that didn't frown upon a veteran player screwing over a newbie
Right - I included that in my list of things that would/could/should be considered in a veto scenario.
and every league I've been in that lasted more than 1 year specifically set up rules to avoid that type of thing. In a first year league where this hasn't been discussed the only RIGHT answer is to have the league decide what to do.
Which type of thing... a veteran screwing a newbie, or a legitimate trade being vetoed because a guy got hurt during the period of time when people are trying to make sure no funny business is going on?
I've never been in a league where rules were set up that said "if a guy gets hurt during the two day vote period, the trade should be vetoed"
I guess you can say its my opinion, but its based on the definition of the purpose of the voting period, which is only there to make sure the trade agreed to AT THAT POINT IN TIME is legit. The only reason the voting period of time is two days is because 10-16 people aren't paying attention 24x7. If they were, that vote period would be no more than a few minutes. It can't be a moving target.[/quote]
