I had an offer out to him since monday of this week. I agreed to make a deal yesterday afternoon with the same player and when I went on to approve the deal the other guy had accepted the deal already.
In my league we vote on a trade before it goes through. As soon as I found this out I told the guy the situation and asked him to drop the deal. He said no and the commish agrees with him.
My problem is that we have no rules in our constitution that state that a deal can be pulled back during the voting period. How can you enforce a rule that didn't exist?

He's Team A.
He offers newbie, Team B, Alex Rodriguez for Albert Pujols. And sends an official offer out via the website.
Team B doesn't respond. Offer just sits there.
Later in the week, Team A emails Team C and says, he'd give him Alex Rodriguez for David Wright (or whatever). Team C agrees.
Team A goes to accept the deal Alex Rodriguez for David Wright only to find that he no longer owns Alex Rodriguez as Team B has accepted the outstanding offer.
Now the Rodriguez/Pujols deal is accepted and pending league approval. He wants the league to kill the deal on the grounds that he wants to trade Rodriguez instead for Wright.
But IMHO he can't. The fact that Team A left the offer sitting there for six days is his problem, not the league's.
That's my read on it, anyhow.
