Any time a first place team trades with the last place team regardless of who proposed it the rest of the league is going to be move to veto it unless it clearly benefits the last place team. Sorry but that is just reality fair or not. In your case this trade clearly benefited you and showed no benefit to the other team that I can see.
I'm not really sure that this is true. I think it is often true that in cases like this the contender (1st place team) cares a lot more about his team than the noncontender (last place team). If your leaguemates don't observe any palpable sacrifice from the contender whatsoever, they are going to lend extra credence to the possibility that the noncontender just doesn't care. That's what is happening here. They need to see a palpable sacrifice from the contender and they didn't, as I don't. I would chalk it up to "collusion via apathy" (no fault of Rails's of course) and move on with business as usual.
I think the above point gives too much credit to the idea that the vetoers are shooting the trade down out of jealousy, and I just don't see that as being the case here.
