While the trade is TECHNICALLY fair based on who each of you are getting it is lopsided as hell since you obviously have no need to keep Vick on your roster. You have two solid QBs and are not giving anyone up that you need in order to get the #1 WR in the game. While it is not collusion that guy is an idiot for making that trade with you...collusion by stupidity. A good owner will always look at the effect of a trade. I bet he is new to ff. When someone makes a trade they should not only see how it improves themself but also make sure they are not creating some kind of super team. That is unless he does not care about winning. I am also in a money league and to be honest if a team is already stacked I will not make a trade with them. Then again I want to win. If he knew what he was doing he would have traded someone else for a lesser QB and kept Austin. He needs a QB but lacks a decent replacement for Austin. Overall they had no right to veto but I can clearly see why they did. I would be mad if I were you. You were robbing him blind and you know it. Who would not want a steal like that in a trade? If all owners had a vote on every trade that went out no trades would go through due to a lack of equality...owners dont want other teams to improve. I agree that every other owner takes a hit if that trade goes through. I think in a money league owners should be allowed to veto very lopsided trades like this one.
It's not his job to worry about the other team. His job is to manage his team as best he can.
I didn't realize that Austin was Rice Jr or something. Vick's a potential top 5 QB and Williams is doing well in Tampa. If current play is remotely close to production for the rest of the year it's a very fair trade anyway. And who knows, maybe he has future trades lined up.
I suggest you just divy up the players fairly each week and then give out juice boxes and orange slices. Oh, and don't keep score, one team might beat another one too badly.
League veto vote is a joke. If you can't trust a Commish to review trades then you shouldn't be in that league.
