So, on our group, every time a business is accepted, post a survey. Public and private leagues require one-third of managers to vote against a trade to veto it. If the number of managers is not divisible by 3, the fractional number is rounded up to the nearest integer to determine the number of managers needed for a veto. All voices are recorded anonymously. So yesterday, we decided to make an exchange with another manager. Baron/Yi for Gasol/JCrawford. I filed the trade before leaving for the day. When I get home 30 minutes later. It is a veto. I talk to the commish and he says he didn`t veto it, but between the time I left work and the time I got home, only 3 managers had signed up (by “manager” list). Unsurprisingly, there are often disagreements and frustrations when it comes to what are the good reasons for a veto, especially since in most leagues, it only takes 1/3 of the league`s members to cancel a trade.
Three experts, all from Fantasy Hoops Insider, discussed in their podcast that aside from collusion, extremely one-sided deals should also be rejected. Smith says trades like Chris Paul need to veto Elfrid Payton, but needs-based trades like Chris Paul are fair to Korver or Matthews if one needs assists and the other needs three points in a roto league. Through Twitter, I was able to collect responses from 17 fantasy authors and podcasters on various websites. In this survey, some fantasy experts gave more than one answer if they wanted what the count would explain. Here is the count of their opinions: @MarkFantasyNBA The suspicion of collusion is the only reason I would veto a trade. Ppl getting ripped off is fantasy (and real life). In the league, I am Commish in we veto Commish, but I put it in the text of the group and you have 6 hours to vote. If approved, it will be published immediately. After that, if it takes me more than 6 hours to release the trade, I pay $5 to both teams. However, I`m not sure about trading offers/acceptances/rejections. I thought this would trigger an update, but that doesn`t always seem to be the case. The list of managers is not as precise.
I`m not sure exactly what counts as “Last League Activity,” but I do know mine will only be updated if you edit and save your roster, or try adding/swapping players or posting a message. Not every time you sign up or visit. I don`t know if he counts vetoes among them. However, an agreement has just been reached and people are wondering how many votes were against it. It sounds silly, but I can`t find where this number is visible. Any ideas? I know I do not see the people who voted against, but I would just like to see the number of votes. That makes things a little better, I guess. Probably no veto. If you`re playing in a league that you take seriously, especially if it`s a competitive league or a money league, it`s important that you and your league are on the same page when it comes to (not) vetoing trades. A commercial veto can significantly change the league`s results. Therefore, it makes sense to have a league-wide agreement on the reasons for vetoing transactions. They do not want to let the commish control the veto because it is only one person.
They also don`t want to allow GMs to veto because people will veto it for stupid and selfish reasons. It is better to leave the veto in the hands of a 3rd party. No, it`s 1/3 of the league. So in a 12-man there are 4 vetoes. They should know who vetoed the exchange, and then tell them why they are complete fools when they veto a deal that is not collusion. Isn`t it 1/3 of the league without the 2 that in the trade so yes that still 4 votes. Dunno, but if it`s not a goalie league, this deal is obviously unfair. I would vote for a veto Even if there is no collusion in a goalie league, the other guy has no chance in the lower third (mainly b/c it`s a goalie league) and now trades talent only at the deadline (much more competition if his best player is iggy) for next year, Is it veto? I have been commish for a few years and I usually leave the exchanges to the vote of the league, unless we agree on a veto commish. In the past, I`ve had no problem because Yahoo would automatically veto the exchange if 1/3 of the league voted against it. @MarkFantasyNBA verifiable collusion (which is difficult) and the trades that the entire league accepts are simply ridiculous It`s probably the next step, but this trade has already been made. Yes, the above happens. It only happened recently when Foye was traded for Bogut.
Bogut was traded by the 12th-ranked team for Foye. The team in 12th place no longer even determines its lineup. Beyond basketball and beyond statistics. In real basketball, underrated moves such as boxing and flipped passes are crucial to victory, but are not reflected in the boxing score or highlighting role. In the Intangible series, I explore those underrated aspects of fantasy basketball that will lead your team to the coveted championship. And lo and behold, my work as a DJ for Barkley was rejected just because people didn`t like it. Other owners should not be able to influence the management styles and decisions of other teams. In the league I`m running in, I take the veto out of my own hands and those of the general manager.
A transaction remains pending for 24 hours and if someone has problems with the trade, they should post a message on the message board (none of this anonymous BS). 2 veto votes are sent for review, and a poll is published in the Rotoworld forum on trading, if 67% of the veto votes, then the trade is rejected. The “unwritten rule” that “collusion is the only reason for a veto” is not as widespread as one might expect. I encountered exchanges in both questions and answers and in my own leagues that were vetoed for the wildest reasons. If 7 votes are rejected after the rejection, the trade is subject to a veto. If 7 accept, trading will be accelerated. @MarkFantasyNBA They are terrible. Unless you can prove collusion, a trade veto is itself a form of collusion that impedes competition.
Does your league have veto power over draft picks? What about alignment decisions? @MarkFantasyNBA @IsItTheWelsh agreements are the only reason to veto an agreement. MAYBE a new guy will be ripped off. Regardless, no league vote The notable observation in this chart is that collusion received 16 of the 17 fantasy experts as a legitimate reason to veto a trade. Jeff Stotts, the only expert who did not vote for collusion, explained that there is no clear answer when it comes to determining the right reason for a veto. Other experts were of the opinion that collusion was the main reason for vetoing a trade.
