    You are in essence handing him players. If you're not going to use him, there is no trade.

    I traded my backup and got a backup in return. What's wrong with that? Not that it matters to me. I wouldn't be too worried about Clark over Brown, but it is your call.

    If you are not using Chris Brown in your line-up, then there is no trade. Tyler Clark is back on your team and Chris Brown is back on r.payton's.

    Fair enough. Sorry r.payton, you're stuck with Brown.

    THanks dude. That's what I need, more drama. I let one bad trade go through, I've stopped the others.

    Which is really the crux of the problem, you cant apply the rules in some cases and not in others. One of the most important things about being a good official or arbitrator of any kind is being consistent in your interpretations.

    I traded Roberts who I wasnt going to use for Goff, who I also wasnt going to use, just in case something came up. It turns out it was the right move because now I'm probably going to start Goff. Maybe news will break tonight that Tigerfans 165 pounder got hit by a train.

    If you were going to make a rule like that you needed to do it before you waived the trade deadline, you cant veto a trade at this point just because you think it might hurt your chances of winning.

    Anyone wanna bet Zapp doesn't volunteer for commish next year? I think he's done an admirable job, a little slow at times, but he was crazy to volunteer while bar exams were approaching. A thankless job, that's for sure!
