  1. Should this trade be vetoed?

    Jesus. A- I don't even know who won the trade. It sets up Team A to make a playoff run when/if AJ comes back healthy and it improves Team B's chances to make the playoffs by upgrading his WR1. This is as basic of a trade as it gets. B- Having divisions in FANTASY football is pointless Hope you didn't put any money into it, sounds like a bunch of immature babies who don't know what the F they are doing.

    Was the tie in a decimal league?

  4. NFL Playoff Question

    Sorry, tried to rush this in before I jumped into a meeting and left a out a pretty crucial part and didn't separate the two different thoughts, my bad its been a long week! Since the NFL expanded playoffs to include the 2 wild card teams I wonder how close a division has come to having all 4 teams compete for the 3 eligible spots? I know last year the NFC South got 3 in but Tampa was terrible at 5-11... - This was my initial thought which lead me to go and look at what the NFL tie breakers are for making the playoffs. Listed them below. My brain then led me down this path where if all 4 teams in one division tied on every single category up to the final one, which is the coin toss. So Since week 17 is typically a divisional matchup it would be the most interesting Sunday to watch the playoff picture unfold and ultimately, although incredibly unlikely, it could come down to a final coin toss lol. That would be the most insane moment in NFL history to watch one sideline explode as the others season ends. The pressure on the captain that has to call it, yikes! Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games among the clubs). Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference. Strength of victory. Strength of schedule. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed. Best net points in common games. Best net points in all games. Best net touchdowns in all games. Coin toss

    Sorry if this is not the correct place for this...Someone brought up divisions in FF and it got me thinking.

    Lol then why have divisions in the first place. We play each team once and then have a "rivalry week" where we play one of the teams again. Works fine but having a better team be left out of playoffs because he was in a tougher division makes 0 sense.
  7. 2018 "Cool Story, Bro!" Thread

    I never understand why people play in divisions in FANTASY football. There are few reason to have divisions but in 99% of the time it makes no sense.

    Good exercise, gives you much better perspective on where how your team is performing compared to your league mates. 12 teamer 8-2 @ 81 - 29 1st in PF, 6th in PA 12 teamer 9 -1 @ 77 - 33 2nd in PF, 10th in PA

    Going with NO, don't like another matchup they have outside of TB but I will be using Pitt vs the raiders that week.
  11. Commissioner's Corner - 2018 Edition

    I mean that's true, but they would have to have the other party accept what they are proposing... and if there isn't a rule against it, every other team has that option as well, that's all I was saying. I wouldn't play in a league like that if it were for money but it would make the final few weeks really interesting. It would be like a domino affect once one team made a move. There would be some fireworks at the top as the top 4-6 teams sell off 2019 draft capital for rentals towards year end to make a run, would make the final 5 weeks an emotional rollercoaster lol.
  12. Commissioner's Corner - 2018 Edition

    You can if that's the agreement ahead of time, which is how the OP explained the scenario. Probably wouldn't fly in a professional sports league but this is fantasy football... He basically traded his 1st rd pick (MT) and either his 2nd-4th depending on how well he did. I get that you're looking at it a different way but that's how I view the transaction and if there isn't something in their league that states that's not allowed then I don't see the problem. The way that the OP presented the situation didn't make it seem secret and the fact that they are trading future draft picks doesn't make it seem illegal as I'm assuming MT would have been kept with his 1st round pick next year. It may be against the rules in your league but how it was presented doesn't qualify as collusion in my eyes.
  13. Commissioner's Corner - 2018 Edition

    Not a different definition just a different view of this scenario. Agreed they did not have an agreement that chapman would be sent back after the season but he was becoming a free agent and there was a conversation with him before he left that involved them wanting him back and it was fairly well known that he would return and what do you know, he did. Not the same but the point I was trying to make was more about sending a player this season for future value in the next, which happens all the time. The main point for me in collusion cases is determining if the parties involved playing by a different set of rules than the rest of the league, the OP didn't state whether this has been allowed in the league previously and I took that as this is the first time its happened. In my book that's a gray area and needs to be addressed next season but should be allowed to process this year if there wasn't a rule previously stated against it and that both parties knowingly broke. I look at this as two separate transactions, Team A is trading MT for a 4th round pick and if he does win there's a second transaction where he is receiving MT and Team B's 2nd round pick and sending back Team B's 4th round pick. When I read the OP it didn't seem like it was a hush hush transaction where both Team A and B were trying to go against the rules and got caught, it seemed advertised and I didn't read it as they knew that wasn't ok. To me that means it wasn't stated in their league rules and if you're allowed to trade future draft picks why wouldn't you be allowed to trade the future rights to a player. I could be wrong but that was my view and how I read the scenario. Already stated this but it sounds like they made their intentions known to the entire league and the commissioner, to me that's not collusion. Collusion would be a private conversation where they are agreeing to cheat, it doesn't seem like that's even possible in this scenario since the commissioner would have to be involved. To me it looks like there wasn't a rule in place, they got creative with a trade that worked for both of them and agreed to move forward. Once the commissioner and members got word, they didn't like it and now here we are, which is understandable but this shouldn't be viewed as collusion imo. Either make a ruling in that moment that you can't trade future players ownership and send the players/picks back or allow it and let the league vote on it in the offseason.
  14. Commissioner's Corner - 2018 Edition

    This is an interesting one... I am 100% against renting players where the situation is I need a RB this week, you need a WR, lets swap and then swap back next week. This on the other hand is different in my opinion. This isn't technically "renting" as one owner is giving up assets for next year that he wont be getting back. Its a slippery slope if you let it slide, but I can see both sides. I would clarify in the offseason as to whether this is allowed moving forward. Its not COLLUSION, one team is getting assets to help him compete for next season while the other is getting an asset to compete for a championship this season. They clearly stated their intentions and obviously there isn't a rule that has been stated against this or we wouldn't be here. Different sport but the Yankees traded away Chapman to the Cubs the year they won the title for assets, knowing he would be back and signed him again the following season. Cubs won a championship, Yankees got picks and/or players I don't remember but it worked out for both.
  15. Commissioner's Corner - 2018 Edition

    I am 100% agree with your take. It is obvious, but its not stated specifically and that creates a loophole. IMO due to it being a gray area If there isn't specific language that clearly states "must end the season on the NFL IR" then I think you have to let it slide and change it next year. I would also say that as the commissioner of my leagues its my job to know the "temperature of the water" of the league. If this was going to cause major issues, which it really shouldn't as Bell may go to an undesirable place next year and realistically could fall to the 2nd round, I would speak with the owner and once he has clarity as to what he is thinking, send out a league wide email to get ahead of it and communicate what's going to happen. A few things that should be considered either way: How competitive is the league, for fun or for money, friends or strangers, how long has the league been together and how long has he been apart of it. All of those should factor into the commissioners decision.
