    It's ironic the use of fair here.
    It's the middle of the day and most people are at work or at school. Just because everybody who vetoed hasn't justified their vote doesn't make it less valid.

    And you LITERALLY just made my argument for me in your own post. You said that a trade needs to be overwhelmingly one-sided to be voted. This trade is the definition of overwhelmingly one-sided. Edu is getting one of the best all-around fantasy producers in the entire sport and giving up mediocre performers who suck horribly in certain categories in return. How is that fair?

    The problem is that you guys don't understand Batum's value. If you removed Batum and inserted Lebron or Durant, you guys would be pissed and it would have been vetoed even sooner. He's not on their level, but he's damn close. He's third in the entire league in made threes made and top 15 in points and steals. He's also above average for his position in FG%, FT%, blocks and assists while being only seventh worst in TOs for all SFs.

    He's unquestionably a top 10 fantasy player and you guys are treating him like a guy who's just pretty good.
    the trade was not overwhelming one sided. does it favor someone? yes. but was it overwhelming one sided? no.

    I didn't vote one way or the other (out and about all day) but I would have vetoed it. Since it got vetoed, I'm assuming that means 6 people voted for the veto. So essentially 7 of the 8 teams not involved thought it was veto worthy? Seems pretty unfair to me

    Yes it does. I could be a clown and veto every trade. Does that sound right to ya? At least 7 had to vote against and just you justified. The racist guy only said he disagrees but he gave no explanation why.

    needless to this guy is 12-0 this year all will win the league because of all the 1-sided trades he has made this year. so i see where mbt is coming from.

    no way one guy should have all those pro bowlers on one squad

    and you have every right to veto every trade. but it wont matter unless at least 5 others think its worth vetoing too. point is when 7/8 of the league not impacted (directly) by the trade think it's a bad deal, it's a bad deal

    You guys are blowing this trade so far out of proportion its stupid. Apparently I'm winning the whole thing bc I have batum. Lol. You guys thought it was one sided. The people doing the trade don't. So just so we are clear moving forward.... If trades are going to happen we have to verify that everyone is cool with it?

    And sorry your fantasy football league is ruined but the trades that were going to happen in our league were on such a smaller scale it isn't even close

    I'm not gonna drop out, I'm just gonna kick ***** like a boss with the team I have. I'm not gonna trade because unless its lebron for durant it will get vetoed. Ill just play the waiver wire and n
    available players and do the best I can.

    I don't understand how it suppose to be fun when no one can trade. Trades to me are suppose to be one sided? gm a tries to rape gm b to fill in his holes while gm b counters to give gm a what he wants but for what gm b will give up.

    I think edu is not gonna play anymore but I'm not sure.

    I'm having a hard time understanding why the Jefferson for Davis trade isn't being vetoed? seems vetoing is inconsistent?

    I just don't see the point in playing anymore if these things are gonna happen everytime. I don't see how I could have fun only playing with my current team and signing FAs. Trades are the funniest things. I remember I used to try trades in the NBA live instead of actually play games.

    I say don't veto unless it is lebron for JJ redick or something. It's not your job to make trades fair as possible.

    look just cause 1 trade got vetoed doesn't mean you can't trade. y'all re blowing that out of proportion. last year we didn't have any vetoes (although they should have blocked mine). when i made that deal i fully expected it to get blocked. someone it didnt (not paying attention?) and it completely skewed the power of the league.

    i've been in plenty of leagues and trades have always been plentiful despite some getting vetoed.
