There are good trades, there are bad trades....there are sly moves with people buying low and selling high...there are poor roster choices with people buying high and selling low....and 95% of the time, I don't have a problem with this..
But if I feel a trade is so ridiculous that I cannot possibly fathom what the owners are thinking, I feel this is grounds for a veto...I would never veto to protect my own self interest (for example, if I wanted to go steal the player that was going in the trade, or a grudge on another owner), but if I think it really has a good shot to ruin the competitive balance of the league, then yes I will exercise the right that my league gives me with such a system in place...
You say that poor waiver wire work and a bad draft can have the same affect if not more on ruining the competitive balance of a league...well I disagree with this statement...sure, bad teams can draft poorly but the players that they pass up are fair game to EVERY SINGLE OWNER on a war room....under a proper waiver system, every owner has an equal opportunity...or I should say FAIR opportunity to be the one to grab Adam DUnn if some idiot chose to drop him
With a trade that is so obviously one sided to the point where you wouldn't be shocked if you learned it was collusion anyway, I feel a veto is justified.
