Now this loose cannon has actually stooped to making typed threats on the computer like an e-thug. Just leave already, you've clearly done what you came here to do. Rile people up and get them as pissed off as you were about not getting your way.

Not saying you did, dude. I'm not part of that 1/3, but when there is a disagreement that cannot be solved, shouldn't we consult the official Yahoo rules on the matter? Seems like the most fair way.

He doesn't care about the fair way though, I know you're always mr. nice guy and don't want to give any strong opinions but I think people have actually been very fair to him. The initial issue prior to this trade being made was whether or not we should stick to 4 keepers. The majority wanted 3 so it was decided at the end of the draft we were going with 3. He either didn't see it or thought it wasn't official (even though a quote was pulled up where RF said it was official). So after much back and forth banter, I forgot who said this but I think it was RF who said he was open to having a vote about whether we have that rule or not. He refused. RF asked him and FC to swap the players back, FC accepted, he refused. What more can you do? Tickle his balls and whisper sweet nothings into his ear?

We all know the history of what happened. I suppose what I mean to say is if he reverses the trade that should be the end of it. No supplemental penalty. If he doesn't, then the conversation can be had.

I still like my idea of making him keep Nene as a keeper next year. If he's trying to tell us that he made the move because it gives him better keeper options, keeping Nene is the only way for him to prove that. It's his funeral.

On a more serious note, if he wants his balls tickled we should get Reggie Evans on the scene, that'll make him change his mind pretty quickly.

I think we should follow the rules of the said league, "All trades are accepted." This is by the commish of this league. The problem is arising cause they "THINK" I tainted this league by making an unfair trade on purpose which is not true. But I can't change the way they feel...

Yes, I understand all that, but we are operating under the pretenses of him still denying it. So with that said, he's most likely also gonna refuse to select Nene next season as well.

So, where are you with the Reggie Evans thing? Punishment fits the crime, I think.

What's the penalty for? For making a trade that makes sense? By that logic, Funk's trade for Marco should have him keeping Marco, Shved and Gee (I know he dropped Marco). Since he traded for them even when he's out of the race. I guess we would have to go back and evaluate every single trade and force GMs to keep players if they make trades thinking about the future...

Are you planning on keeping Nene for next season with your 6th round pick?

Just of note, it's more than 1/3rd. (myself, Tabak, RF, Bokes, Kmart, Funk). If I make a trade that (at least) 5 people out of a 13 team league think should be vetoed, as far as i'm concerned I don't have a choice in the matter. If it was 1 or 2, then as he says it should be disregarded.

Which part of what I said is a lie. If I find the quotes for everything I just said (which would be very easy unless you go back and delete it) then what?

It's one of my options, absolutely. I am waiting on see how Wall returns. Only guy that I'm almost 100% sure about keeping is D-Rose. For the other two spots, I have Asik, Wall and Nene as of now. (Ryan Anderson can be an option if I don't keep Wall; if I keep Wall I will have to pay 3rd round price for Anderson, not sure how willing I am to do that)...

This pretty much sums up my thoughts on the matter. I was surprised when FC willingly accepted RF's request. Not so surprised that Bman didn't. But it is what it is.

edit: I will add, all FC did is press the accept button. So due to the fact that he honored the request and made the attempt at sending him back I won't hold him accountable.

You're grasping at straws here. Did I force beast, kmart, bokes etc to continue to discuss this on my behalf or something? I doubt even FC believes this.

A general question for those who were unaware that the rule change was being talked about prior to the draft, did you miss the commisioners note that was left before the draft started?

Quote:
Oct 5 5:17am
Before the draft gets started, I would like to propose a few rule changes to begin next season. I think we have too many keepers with 13 GMs. I suggest we change to 3 keepers next season for a total of 39. We are currently over 50 kept players. This should help the re-draft pool.

Also, undrafted players are currently round 11 which is too low. Every year guys emerge and become great fantasy players. The 11 th round keeper value is not in line at all with their production. I would suggest round 8 starting next year.

Post thoughts on forum or message board. Thanks!
