Well another season has come to a close. I guess I will congratulate myself....

Thanks for almost everyone staying active, regardless of their standing in the league!!! Drama this year like none before but I still had a blast and I hope you did also.

As usual, we'll address the new season with plenty of time before next season's tip off.

Wow, I am shocked... I thought I'd never lose to RapsFan, but it happened. I'll make sure it won't happen again.

Congratulations to RF

FC I guess you didn't deliver on your promise. Congrats to RF. Although I will say the mid-season drama kind of sapped my interest in the league for this season.

yep. Ignore trades that were lopsided. Ignore the Green/Lillard trade with kmart. Bosh for Earl Clark/AK. waiver wire guys being traded for top 50 players like it's nothing. There were some awful trades throughout the year that would have been vetoed easily in 3/4 of the leagues. But you know, rapsfan is commish, so when his competition makes a trade; he needs to step in and veto...

I think for next year we should have a voting system when it comes to questionable trades. If 7 of the 13 league members feel a trade should be vetoed, then it should be.

This way, there's less arguing. Whatchya all think?

You have nothing to say. You bailed months ago and in 3/4 of the leagues, you wouldn't be in it next season. But you're right, I was the only guy that had an issue with your ridiculous Nene situation. Love conspiracy theory guy.

I am not against it, but we'd never get 13 votes. Half the league doesn't post a comment once the draft is over. We've always had deals that people complain about, I am sure all leagues do, but in now 6 years we have had one vetoed deal. I think that's pretty good. I think the rules tweaks proposed should improve things. Time will tell.

We don't need 13 votes, just 7 for it or against it. Also, during the draft we can urge people to give their opinion's on trades throughout the season. In this thread.

Being in a >>Forum<< fantasy league, involves more than just participating on the Yahoo website. You also should be required to post in the fantasy thread during the season. More involvement should be mandatory. imo

After all, we are all members on this site for a reason.

I guess I'm saying that in order to get 7 for or against, we'd need almost unanimous decisions because we probably don't have 7 GMs that communicate on the thread. I agree, more thread opinions would be nice.

Playing devils advocate, I actually think a voting system would lead to way more arguing. I've seen deals that were terrible, but unless there is some unique circumstances, all deals have been approved. We probably did like 50 deals this season, great activity. That number would shrink big time. People would vote for or against a deal based on if it would help or hurt them in the standings. Just my opinion. A proper trade analysis would have to be done by a third party, obviously not an option for us.

41.9/10.6/9

that's what was traded; no players, just numbers (who would you rather have). Made no sense at the time and still makes no sense.

A voting system would be fine. Maybe 5 or 6 votes in 2 days could be enough to veto a trade, instead of 7.

In your head yes. You have to keep up the battle. Reality is, league had an issue with your hissy fit and subsequent deal so it was vetoed. Deal with it and move on.

You're also talking in circles. I don't know or care what numbers you posted. You conspiracy is that the myself as the commish vetoed the deal to help me win. As I said before, if you think the league is rigged and I was able to get all the other GMs who had an voiced an issue to support my cause, then there are lots of other non-rigged leagues.
