can you veto a trade 4 times?

Postby sadlyajetsfan » Wed Apr 25, 2007 1:36 am

i had a pending deal with an owner where i get crawford and lackey and give up manny and myers. its lopsided but he has no power and a ton of speed. after tonights little 4-4 run with a GS by crawford and 0-4 performance by manny he vetos his OWN trade. he claims he did it 4 times so itll get vetoed but i dont understand how can do it 4 times, i was thinking 3 people had to of been in it with them.

4 people have to veto a trade for it not to go through. One person cannot veto it 4 times. The only thing he could do to stop the trade would be to release Lackey or Crawford (or put them on the DL which isn't an option).

then im unleashing all hell on this league. the pending time isnt time to rethink a deal, once its accepted deal done imo and just knowing 3 other owners thought it was fair to do this to me is pretty messed up. it may be harsh but i told them that anything i thought was a bit unfair i would put a veto in for as well as have another one of my friends veto it. the deal doesnt make or break me its just the principle of it that really gets me. anyway to find out who vetoed?

Nice.
Remind me to never invite you to a league.
If you don't get your way, your going to take the league down?

damn, your friends are playing dirty. i'm not sure i'd do a league with them next year however. I don't recommend killing every deal though.

you think its fair to accept a deal then veto it right before it goes through? lets say someone gets injured during a pending deal, even if i was getting the injured player i wouldnt veto it because its fair sportsmanship. i will stoop to their level because they dont want me to have "too good" of a team. i dont see how its a legit veto in anyway. obviously im not going to take the league down, thats alittle harsh and came out wrong but i will veto trades i dont like instead of letting them slide anymore. also its 4 vetos to get a deal vetoed so i cant do it alone but there wont be any bs trades going through like there were. they threatend a veto for lugo for f.cordero pre season so this isnt the first time ive had to deal with this


edit- i am cool and collected now. i had an outburst but not AS angry and i overreacted a bit. i have no intension to carry out what i said i would do because it is childish and it would go against what i believe in. im just suprised it happend considering we are in a pretty serious league

Manny and Myers for Crawford and Lackey is pretty ridiculous right now considering Myers is pithcing in middle relief. I personally would probably let the trade go through, but I certainly wouldnt' blame other league members for vetoing it. As far as the guy vetoing his own trade goes... kind of weak, I agree, but it's not against the rules. Considering the trade was so bad, you can't really blame him for realising it and changing his mind, can you? That move could have killed his whole season.

This is one reason why I prefer to play for no (or very low) stakes when I play with friends. Money often complicates things.
