I'll try to make this quick. Interested in what people have to say for this downward spiral that's taken place in the league I'm in.
Began when Team A (hurting with RBs; had Bell, Cohen, Aaron Jones, Duke ) sent Thielen, Woods, Ebron and Aaron Jones for Team B's Conner, Ertz, Baldwin, Josh Gordon -- both teams among the best in the league. People thought it was a crazy trade (they assume Bell's back soon), and that since the two owners work together and "have a history of this stuff," it's collusion. Team B owner quit right away, but a later said he'll at least update his roster. Portion of the league say that quitting is when things went wrong.
So recently Team C comes in and makes a deal with Team A. Team A sends Thielen/Woods/Cohen for Hunt/Edelman/Tyrell Williams. I don't think it'll get vetoed.
A lot of the guys are buddies from high school, and the "angry majority" we'll call them say that the first trade was ridiculous. I'm not sure the second is better than the first, however. Team A even came in and explained his rationale; he doesn't think Bell will be back, at least anytime soon. Connor is balling out. (Notice in second deal he's giving up more; and doesn't get Ertz + Baldwin/Gordon.)
The first trade was collusion.
We have a right to use the veto button.
If the first trade was vetoed, there's something wrong with it.
Why did we even change the number of votes required to veto this offseason if we can't veto?
Team B started this when he quit.
I'd love some thoughts and opinions on this. It won't change anything, but just seeking some reasonable reactions here. I'll WHIR pretty quickly today.
