How many of you.......

12 posts in this topic

fantasy football players auction off your team when you are having a terrible season? I am 1-8-1 in one of my 3 leagues and everyone wants McGahee, Gonzalez and Hasselbeck. I'm not willing to trade because that's not who I am, but how many of you would trade? I have to mention that the guy leading is a pain in the butt, and the buy-in is $200, so I don't want to see him win. grin.gif

As long as you were getting fair value in return and not making lop sided trades to the other owners I would have no problem with you making those trades if I was in your league. I've always been of the opinion that good teams have every right to get better as well. If the upper guys have good depth at one particular position and want to trade away that depth to make up for weaknesses in other positions to get ready for the playoff run then more power to them.

Just my .02 worth.

Yeah, it's getting to that time of the year when trade deadlines loom. I'm in 3 leagues, on pace for gold, silver, and bronze in each of them right now, and I'm looking to do what Down to Earth described. I'm weak at WR in my first place league with L. Coles and D. Mason, but am strong at RB with M. Lynch, J. Addai, and C. Portis. I could deal one RB that I can't play each week anyways for a better WR.

We'll see how it goes. I offered Portis for Colston but the Colston owner knows the Saints are heating up....

I agree in both of the scenarios, but I was wondering how many people have a complete "yardsale" of sorts (ie. Portis for Betts, or Hasselbeck for Kelly Holcombe). I'm all for a beneficial trade for both parties, but I hate to see good players leave a losing team in a lopsided trade.

If you had a "yardsale in my league with a (Contact Us Please) team you would definitely not be invited to play again next year. To do something like that is just bush league.

That is the response I expected to get and EXACTLY the way I feel.

True. That's why leagues need good commissioners or voting on all trades.

Even worse is when somebody just drops everybody and then its a waiver wire fire sale.

FFB should bring managers of the same skill level or experience to prevent those things from happening. Or just play for money so people actually care what they do (Gambling ruins families and in no way do I condone it grin.gif)

in our league we have 3 guys that overview any rules/trades. I am one of those lucky guys and have had to nix trades and call out an infraction last year that cost a guy the championship and $800 dollars..... tongue.gif

That was another reason for posting this. We also have a commitee to review trades that involve the commish. I was involved in a trade with the commish about a month ago where I traded Boldin for De Shaun Foster and Phillip Rivers. I had no back-up QB (for Hasselbeck) and my running backs were not living up to expectations (McGahee and Jones-Drew). I was deep at WR and in a league where WR get a lot of points, if you have 3 starters, you're pretty much set. So, the "commitee" (which consisted of the 2nd place team and I was trading with the 1st place commish) decided it was unfair and that there was some collusion involved. It ended up going to the league as a vote and was ultimatley allowed. So far that trade has not made a difference for either team. I guess it's not as easy when money is involved......although I don't condone gambling grin.gif

I was offered a 12 pack of beer for Reggie Bush. I replied that I am not a whore and my integrity is worth more than a case of beer. He said that he was only offering a 12 pack.

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
