    (12:02:26 PM): trade a big name and then swap teams, thats totally unfair for the newbie getting the lions

    (12:02:54 PM): yes if you want ill copy/past what you tell me

    bigoxknoxville 12:03 pm
    (12:03:41 PM): i think there should be some stimpulation on swapping teams when you a stuck for the duration of the season when you trade someone over a 95 for example

    I personally think its just the nature of the beast. Most of our newbies don't have the opportunity to choose their team anyways, so whether Megatron is on the roster or not is irrelevant. I do understand Ox concern about having to stay when you make a big trade but as long as our trade committee is doing their job equal talent should be moving to and fro each team. If this is something we want to implement next season we will have to have extreme limitations on who exactly can or cannot be traded for each team.

    I brought this up before the season actually. I think if you make major changes to a roster you should stick it out.

    Thats just like my opinion...dude.

    I am ok with putting a stipulation in next year saying if you trade a 90s + player that you must stick it out with that team for the duration of the 2 seasons (or even the whole time we play that year of madden). I am not ok with telling guys who they can and can't trade though.

    Im cool with a rule saying if an owner trades any high profile stars (95+) he must at least stay with that team for the entire season.

    Lions recieved 3 starters for 1 in that trade. On a team with multiple holes its a no brainer. Plus I was 0-2 with CJ and 2-0 without.

    IMO, the Lions are a better team after this trade and that is all that matters. Who cares if CJ is on their roster if the team is losing.
