A trade should stand on its own merits & never need explanation...:p
The more explaining it needs the more suspicious it becomes...;P
I think explanation helps clear things up a lot of times, but I see what you mean. It's just too close to my own trade and I guess it pissed me off.
I'm not pleased with the situation (including my own position in it), but oh well.
Dude, no offense gold but... You traded Ganjabar Sanjaya for Jimmy Kennedy... I think you've pretty much forfeited any right to reject a trade ever on grounds of being unfair.
I'm familiar with the whole whining routine that goes on when someone lands a good trade, as I've been on both sides. But this isn't nearly as lopsided as some of you are trying to make it out to be. Grey has yet to wrestle a match this year, he was supposed to be back for the body bar, then for the scuffle, then he was supposed to be back for national duals, now they are hoping to have him back by January 30th.
I wouldn't touch the dude with a ten foot pole at this point
I mean I dont think Hamlin and Nelson for Rey and Mango is rejectworthy either so I dont understand why people would be crying about that. But cmon, seriously? Ganjabar Sanjaya for Jimmy Kennedy is ok, but this is rejected?
When your reason for making a ruling "isn't because something is terribly unbalanced" but because you have "grudges" maybe its time you remove yourself from the decision making process and let someone objective take a look at things. I'm sure Vais has done himself no favors with his tendency to nitpick and complain about every little thing, but if you're going to be an effective commish you need to be able to look past stuff like that and rule on the trade not the person.
Just my two cents
I have informed gold to hold on this trade. I want to think about this. Also I had a good trade a couple of weeks ago that I thought was good with gold and he passed on the trade because of the complaints coming. I would like to make a trade eventually without controvercy. Can I get a break. my team is suffering due to the eyes on my team. I dont complain about anyone else when they trade.
My line up has vacant spots and you guys are stopping me from accum.. points I will be making trades this week and I want it to be respected. Im not a dummy, let me live!!!!!!
One of the all-time greats!
