I堢een pushing a trade committee over the last few years蹿 Because nearly every trade raises someone elseಡnkles. Not that the trade committee would make every deal fair or wise, but would provide a forum for the complaints to be heard and either sustained or overruled.
Whatࡠfair deal? A deal that helps both teams. One teamॸcess fills another teamed. That can be by position (I have two starting 3B, and no RF, I trade my excess 3B to a team that has a RF that he can spare), by need (I need to get younger and the other team needs Ფs௲ by risk (I have extra slots and am willing to trade tangible draft picks for young or recuperating players).
There are several trade methods:
*Not socially acceptable, but no rules
There are also a couple of unwritten rules that for the good of the league, members should try to abide byﭥ are more successful at this than others.
But remember, whether itനis year or next year, an even deal with your competitor gains you no ground. Exact a higher price when dealing with your competition.
Absolute no nos鰰ing off newbies, buddy deals, and secret deals (this doesn੮clude post 15 deals agreed on before 15崠they aren८forceable 鬠they堯fficial).
Think before you tradeﵠmay be helping your team, but you堨urting the league if you make an unfair or unwise deal (whether you場he winner or loser in the deal).
