I think we have all had them. There are always "trade jerks" out there offering trash for gold. What is the appropriate response and how does your fantasy format (Yahoo, CBS, ESPN, etc) display the trade.
I received a silly offer today and I tried to think of the best response. I do not want to get into the particulars because it would be off topic for the main forum. The gist of it all though is, do you counter with a ridiculous trade for an in-kind spite type thing? or do you realize what the trade proposer was trying to get at and counter in a way that would help your team? Do you do make your moves in the privacy of e-mail, or do you take your ridicule of the offer to a league message board, public forum, or the local pub's barstools?
Anyway, just wondering how people handle this. I tend to try and be fair with trade offers- so horrible deals piss me off.
If I think a person is being fair, but I do not like the trade I try to be nice and decline.
If I think a person is being a jerk and offering trash for gold, I used to just hit my 'decline' button (Yahoo league) but now I counter with a bad deal in return. The thing is I try to counter with a bad deal that follows the logic of an original offer. If you are offering me a bad RB and a bad TE for a WR, I will counter with a WR for one of your best two RBs.
