Help me settle a dispute
Here we are five weeks into FFL and it seems every week in our league, people are b****ing about the rules.
I am co-commish in the free samples league, and this really bothers me considering I helped set up the rules, taking a little bit from some other leagues I had been in the past, and adjust rules I didn't like from the past. Now we play for a big cash pot. So maybe this is the root of all the squabbles, no one wants to get screwed.
Here is the situation: Antonio Gates was traded from team A, to team B, for Donte Stallworth , mid week last week. After last weeks games were played, the teams in question reversed the trade. Gates going back to team A and Stallworth back to team B. Once questioned, team B admitted that he had Tony Gonzales, on a BYE week, so he pre-arranged the trade with team A, promising to trade the TE back to his original team after the week was over.
There are no rules against this type of trade, and the whole league now seems to be up in arms, was this a bad trade? was it cheating? should either team be penalized?
