The Bad Trading thread

Thread to discuss horrible trades that have been made in your league, vetoing them, and what not.
__________________________________________________ __

One of my best friends is really not a sports fan. Loves going to baseball games for the experience of sitting outside drinking and what not, but other than that he couldn't give a ****. Our group of friends started a new league this year, and he joined not cuz he cares about football, but just as a way to keep in touch.

He just's accepted a trade sending away Ryan Matthews for Redskins RB Alfred Morris.

I know Matthews is out for a while, but this is just garbage. Morris had 1 good week, but you can't predict any kind of consistency from any skins RB, let alone one only on about 30% of teams.

If this goes through, my league is literally handing someone an extra 2nd round pick for the 2nd half of the season. Absolute garbage!

Like 2 years ago someone offered someone else the Seahawks DEF for Rashard Mendenhall in one of my leagues.

He said "What? Its a good trade Seahawks got like 20+ points last week and are a top ranked D."

This was a few days after Leon Washington ran 2 Kicks back inflating their stats.

It's still really early in the season but MJD is clearly better than Turner and fantasy wise, Vick has been better than Rodgers as of now.

Chris Johnson for a six pack, real highway robbery.

I feel bad for the guy who gave me the six pack but it's not my fault he accepted.

This trade happened in one of my leagues last week:

AJ Green and Mike Williams for Matt Ryan and Jamaal Charles.

Same guy who offered the aforementioned SEA DST for Mendenhall is the one trading Charles and Ryan.

Had a good one one last week. Someone traded Calvin Johnson and Marques Colston for Wes Welker and Willis Mcgahee. Needless to say many people were pissed.

Hell, I traded Darren McFadden straight up for Peyton Manning. I'd say its worked well so far.

Really helps when Drew Brees is your starting QB.

Mike Wallace
LeSean McCoy

For

Stevie Johnson
Ryan Williams
Ryan Mathews

I'm not going to veto it. The guy trading McCoy is in first place, the guy getting him is in last. But wow... Maybe the TOTAL value is there, but I think everyone would rather have McCoy and Wallace...

I needed receiver help and about 2 weeks ago offered Bradshaw to a fellow for Antonio Brown. I forgot about it and after last nights game he accepted. Next year I'm lobbying for a deadline on which to accept a trade. I'm pissed I forgot to cancel the trade and it's made my blood boil all damn day...

ESPN automatically expires the offer after two days I think.

Morris for Matthews doesn't seem so bad right now.

One of the leagues I'm in ppl veto trades just to be jerks. I wasnt aware of this when i joined but apparently this league has been this way for years. My buddy (the commish) told me there hasnt been a trade in his league for years. Needless to say i wont be joining this league again if it stays this way.

After week two I made a trade with a buddy, I traded Megatron, Julio and Witten for Rodgers, Mcfadden and Bowe. At the time and for a couple of weeks later I was kinda winning that trade, then it blew up in my face haha.
