Lately, there has been a lot of questions of how unrealistic some trades are. It has gotten to the point where order needs to be restored. If the majority of GMs vote for one of these 3, we will go in that direction. I felt that there are three directions that we can go with this:

1) Leave all trades as they are, it's fantasy.

2) Review all Questionable Trades and Veto unrealistic ones.

3) Start new Mock in which I'll be much less lenient with using vetoes.

Start a new mock.

Allow only trades of draft picks.

Link a Draft Pick Value Chart and make sure every trade is reasonably close in value.

Honestly, I might get a lot of crap for this, but it's fantasy, your a GM of a 'fantasy' team. This is in no way realistic. If it was realistic I would be fired...maybe. You are either trying to make your team better through trades or through draft picks. If you don't make your team better then, you in turn lose. But, I got crap for trading for Brett Favre b/c he would retire in two years. Great, I have him for the one year that I need him. Again, it's FANTASY, not the real deal.

I like it the way it is, if we change it then it will set a bad precedent.

We all knew the rules when we agreed to this league, and just because some people are mad they couldnt get the better end of trades like some have (myself included). They are made and wanna scream about it being "unrealistic" .

It will be sad if we revamp and start this league over because some of these trades are unrealistic. It is a fantasy league. IMO the fun in this comes from getting to do these trades that dont happen in the real NFL. If we are going to have boring "Carolina Panthers" offseason GM league, then I dont see the point. We might as well just watch what the real NFL does this year.

People who are demanding a league change are looking like cry babies.

I think some need to be reviewed, but don't restart the whole thing.

Personally I feel the vast majority of trades have been fair and rather interesting to watch. The ones in question are genuinely in the minority, but they were significantly unbalanced to the extent it ws hard to fathom why they were done.

I would most likely disagree with a reload as most GMs here have done pretty good things and shaped their teams into what, it would be somewhat unfair to the guys who have done a great job.

There is a great feeling when you feel you get 'one over' on a trade over another team, or if you manage to get a young gem from another team for next to nothing. Analysing each trade under a microscope would likely take a lot of the fun out of it as you would always be trading players for face value.

Sometimes players will give up more to get a specific player, or a few high profile players to generally make their team more rounded. So, removing that, will make no teams get a net gain as they will always be traded things of equal value.

I think for the really questionable ones, just have a few GMs flag it and it can be reviewed. No need to do this for everything.

Would everyone be satisfied if I moved up the draft date and then started a new Mock soon after. I'm not sure what the trading rules would be for that one, but I would leave less time for trading so that we could get the draft done around the same time as the actual draft.

You can't have the draft before the combine though

I would not change the time scale. You had the initial flurry of trades, but since then there has been just the occassional agreement. This is not to say there isn't things going on though. A lot of people will be jostling for position in the draft to get the guy that will complete the roster etc...

I think it would be a shame to change teh structure and the results of what we have done thus far.

Personally, I think only a couple of trades were eligible for review, most of the 'dodgy' trades were just lack of judgement by one GM. By all means review these particular ones.

the main problem with reviewing certain trades is that many teams that may have a questionable trade, may not do the next trade without the questionable one going through? for example im the eagles, i traded jeremy maclin. for a rb benie wells, but if i hadnt already aquired devin hester and roddy white to boost the recivers i never would have moved him......

im sure this will occur alot for many teams like chargers, colts, vikings
