    Doesn't matter. The vetoers or others, provided the burden. The vetoed hadn't been heard from until today. Regardless, you never agreed to that standard. So the conditions are the same as before. Except, of course that Thee TFD is not your offspring. Your reaction is quite different. If you agree with the principles you quoted in your last couple posts then the discussion is over, is it not. If your solution as commissioner is to now bar all traded I will support you. Let's just be fair across the board.


    In my opinion, this could have and should have been handled very differently. But it all began on a very hostile manner. perhaps the trade could have been tweaked a bit with a civil open discussion.its all become very personal. The league has been ruined in all likelihood.

    It makes me uncomfortable that I am being told that a forum members status should enter into my decision making status when evaluating a trade. I think each trade should be considered on merit alone.


    this feature that saves your drafts was a Pain in the butt because I couldn't delete them, but it just saved my butt THREE times where I would've lost it. Nice!! :)

    Seriously, nemo . If I've misbehaved please tell me. I tried to end this nonsense long ago but the fires continue to be fanned. I've held back a whole lot, I promise.

    Thanks guys, Thee and I dodged a bullet there... Measuring by the Yahoo points based on a 16 person 1 qb league this wasn't a fair trade.

    It's impossible to prove innocence. Courts don't work that way on purpose. The burden must be on the accuser.

    That said, your league, run it your way.

    You haven't fanned the flames, but I'm surprised you haven't walked away yet.

    This was sarcasm, guys.

    Bill made it obvious what his position is regarding use of the veto. After criticizing him for his comment, don't try to call him out now for not going up to bat every time a veto is used.

    Yeah. The commissioner could have either not changed the settings or not questioned the veto of his son's trade, and none of this would have happened. The threatening to take command of veto is what really pissed me off.

    Since the commish was so fervent in finding the culprits that denied his son's trade and then retaliated by denying a fair trade, I'd like someone with football knowledge and no dogs in this fight to determine what trades are fair. Maybe even a 3 person committee. You up for it, BDL? webz? Nemo? CJ? keewenaw? Jammer? Anyone?

    Let's just keep with the original trade settings for the league. I'm sorry I offended you with my initial post. In the future, each GM will have to evaluate trades and decide whether they wish to cast a veto. Personally, I will not vote against any trade. Let's move forward.
