I think that the 24hr review and veto process for trades is unnecessary and unfair to the teams involved in a trade. If both owners agree to the trade then there is no reason why it shouldn't go through. The trade review is used mainly in leagues where people control multiple teams to keep them from making one team super stacked. And I think that the ability for everyone to veto trades is unfair to the two teams that are making the trade, like I said before if both parties agree to the trade then there is no reason why it shouldn't go through. So from now on the trading will be done like it is in every sport but the NBA, if both teams agree to the trade then it is happening, regardless of what I or anyone else in the league thinks of it.

I think *I* should be allowed review of all trades. And I'm open to bribes.

I preemptively veto all of Sam's trades until he send me an detailed essay on the relative merits of the Grateful Dead's Florida tours from 1973-1977.

Why do you say that? (me and MG are going to have to execute each trade as well... I couldn't get around that in the set-up options)

Nothing is set in stone. I do want to make sure that everyone knows that. If everyone is against this I will change it back to how it was before. Right now me and MG will have to approve each trade individually before they go through, and there is still a 24hr wait period, there is are just no more vetoes.

I've been in leagues where a league member would get bored halfway through the season and start dumping players. Vetoes prevented that. But if we have real, live, intelligent humans looking at the trades anyway, then dumping probably won't be an issue.

I guess the other big area of difficulty would be some sort of a collusion setup. I don't that applies to this league (no money on the line = no incentive to collude).

I suppose vetoes could help prevent one player from being taken advantage by another in a trade, especially if the victimized player is one of the more inexperience members of the league.

That's why i made intentional bad picks for March Madness. Didn't want everyone else to feel badly about themselves.

Damn, Spence, you're a helluva fella. It's going to almost make me feel bad when I end up crushing you in the tournament. Almost.
