Regarding the Anderson Varejao trade:
 
As its important for the league to continue its known high standards of clean competitive fair play, especially since this trade involves the commish (me).

Anyways, so I sent out offers for Andy V few hours before the injury news broke out (owners that have receive email preference option on can confirm).

Even though the trade was accepted 6 hours or so after the injury was reported, I'm guessing TeamXFactor:Orealius was not aware of it (otherwise pretty certain he wouldn't have accepted it).

While I know most of you will think its tough luck and up to the owner to do homework before accepting trades, at the same time, I also have known quite a few people that are against trades such as these (although usually shorter time gap between the breaking news and the time of trade acceptance).

Therefore, to not just be as fair as possible, but also to reaffirm that there is nothing dirty going on, I will let the league voice their opinions on this - if six people or more (50% of the league) are against the trade, I have no issue with veto'ing the trade. I will keep the trade suspended for the next 36 hours (unless a majority decision is reached by then).

If the news was out there for a decent amount of time, then I believe it's on the manager to take the 2-3 minutes to do their homework. This isn't a quick dump (which are dirty and unethical in my opinion), it's known that Varejao is injured, as indicated by that big INJ next to his name. Regardless of whether the time frame was reported or not (and it seems like the time frame was reported which makes it even more clear in my eyes), accept the consequences of the gamble. As much as it may suck, I think the trade should be processed. Live and learn.

You gotta veto the trade. Some people have different work schedules, time zones, families etc...

I mean the first report on rotoworld was he was playing this week. Then later it said he was out 6-8 weeks. Same day stuff.

Gotta agree here because this isn't a rookie league right?
