I'm surprised that once that ends you revert to a snaking draft order rather than last-to-first place in each round. Do you also snake non-traded picks in the first 5 rounds?

What gets lost in Keeper League trades is "value". In my league, this is a term that draws twelve different opinions from twelve different, well informed managers.
I agree with an earlier comment that stated that the trade has to be either collusion or UNBELIEVABLY unbalanced, so as to change the rules of the league. Something has to be SO egregious that you feel that there should be a rule change to eliminate the situation from ever happening again.
#1. Let the trade go. This is not a game-changer. It benefits both teams.
#2. Go to a straight draft in the inverse order of standings. Vote on "re-snaking" that thing in three years. This will allow more balance into your lopsided, top-heavy league.
#3. Pare down the number of Keepers to six, subtracting one Keeper per year over the next two years. The fewer the Keepers, the more balance between strategy, fun and knowledge.
#4. Eet Mor Chikin.
#5. The cow made me say that. He's gone, so feel free to disregard that last statement.
#6. "Fair" benefits both parties, does it not?
#7. VALUE = FAIR
#8. No one will ever understand "value", except the team that gets what they want from a Free Market System.
