Ok, in an attempt to bring some light as to this last page of conversation, I've volunteered to peel back the curtain on what it is we as commissioners do, how these trades are processed, and the workings into the specifics of the above referenced deal.
First, as you can probably guess, [mention=73629]GolfSpy STUDque[/mention], [mention=27071]Undershooter[/mention] and myself have a long running Twitter DM thread to discuss the league, happenings, adjustments we can make and yes, discuss our teams and potential trades. Sometimes we express interest and wonderment in the amount of FAAB dollars spent on certain players, sometimes we discuss our own start/sit dilemmas, sometimes we share the dopest of memes. But mostly, we're discussing either how to improve the league experience or discussing trades.
Now, the reason the trade systems works as it does it actually a pretty simple explanation. We're all adults here, if we agree to make a trade, my belief is that it should be evaluated, but ultimately, we shouldn't stand in the way of your agreement happening. Take it from an attorney who works in negotiating settlements for custody on a daily basis. If the parties agree, the parties agree and the court, or in our case, the commissioners, shouldn't get in the way of that agreement. 
But let's go deeper, because of something that was said:
 First, let me explain the logical fallacy on display here, just to prove a point. This trade was approved by all three commissioners, because Undershooter agreed to it by approving the trade with Goaliewales through the trade network. But, to place concerns at rest, I can tell you for absolute fact that Undershooter did not approve of this trade through the Fantrax system, I did. The reason for that is simple,. To eliminate bias and concern, in our Twitter thread when a trade involving one of the commissioners takes place, that commissioner is required to ask one of the other commissioners to approve the trade in Fantrax to eliminate the aspect of self-dealing people are discussing here. So any trade involving me is approved by either Stud or US, any trade involving Undershooter is approved by myself or Stud, and any trade involving Stud is approved by either myself or US. All other trades are open to acceptance for whomever is online at the time.
Lastly, let's discuss the specifics of the trade in question. What I can tell you is that Goaliewales and Undershooter each made lists as to who they valued on each other's rosters and began structuring a deal around those wants. Now, you can argue the value of these ratings and how they jive with your evaluation or expert evaluations of players and their abilities, but Goaliewales got the players he desired to obtain from Undershooter and was willing to trade a disappointing WR who has high end WR1 capabilities to do it. He felt the need to try and make a move to improve his position at 3-7 and I'm not going to fault him for that. Fortune favors the bold and if he's right in his assessments of talent, he's got guys who may be able to turn his season around instead of relying on a guy who hasn't delivered for him and an injured Drew Brees. 
So, that's the first and last word on this from the commissioners of the league. I wish everyone good luck in week 6, may your touchdowns be plenty!


You shouldn’t need to explain yourself like this but it’s much appreciated that you guys always do. Thank you!

Thanks Bucky, we actually had a discussion as to whether or not to respond, but since things got heated I figured, I can thread this needle, so we'll do it, put it in the past and much like a certain hoodie wearing jerk in New England, declare we're onto week 6.

what ???  I guess the Commish is showing his bias against a particular team vs maintaining independence.  that's some league jurisprudence. ha.
Belichick has won eight Super Bowl titles in total from his combined time as an assistant and head coach. Belichick is the NFL's longest-tenured active head coach, as well as first all-time in playoff coaching wins with 31; no team in the NFL has a winning record against the Belichick coached Patriots...not any of the 31 other teams.... if that type of success makes you a jerk then I wish people would call me a jerk.

 

BTW - I don't agree with vetoing and am happy it isn't an option.  I think it's the job of the commish to step in if he sees obvious collusion or the fact that an experienced player is taking advantage of an inexperienced one....things I've seen in other leagues.

Now Stoker, admit he's a surely man who can come across as a jerk, and that's part of why the fan-base loves him, and I'll rescind my statement 😉

The director of our group actually has that cover framed in his office.

I felt like I NEEDED to post something with a user name with Boston in it.

@00sportsman I didn't watch the game, but was feeling pretty good about Edelman's game until I saw 39 points out of your defense. No wonder you're 10-0...

It's interesting you mention this, The Ringer just posted a piece about how the Pats D is breaking Fantasy Sports. You can read it, right... here

It's not really sustainable, although it is extremely impressive so far. It also doesn't hurt that their schedule/ division is 💩

Our cross-division matchup should give him a good run for his money! We both got Pats D and Michael Thomas!
