IMO, only the two principles should be involved in reasoning of a trade. To Air negotiations in public just makes the rest of the league jealous and call for an automatic veto. The best thing to do, is try and use the message board to your advantage, but keep negotiations private. Talk via email, im, or just through offers and counter offers. Then, when the deal is made, it gets posted and the other managers have to do their own homework. You don't need to do it for them by using the public message board. If your trading partner is sitting on an offer, and you really think he is going to take it, then is a good time to use the message board to make him feel the heat. "Take it or leave it, pal. I'm about to take it off the table." Granted, this is just my oppinion of one strategy, but I hope it helps.
