    Again, apologize if this has been discussed elsewhere. A lot on the boards these days...

    In trying to make some controls for trades and approvals, it seems (correct me if I'm way wrong!):

    1) It is already pretty difficult to get trades done and to know what offer will be accepted. This is a good thing.
    2) There is still need to have some control over any shenanigans and so most setup trade committees.

    The Question: How do you make this reasonable?

    Meaning, in my short experience, it seems like you have to really go trial and error to know if the cpu will even accept. So it might take 15 trade proposals to work a deal out. With this, and with understanding that there is no way to reject or nullify trades once made (is this correct?), how do you get it so that trade proposals aren't extremely tedious (i.e. a guy having to text/msg the trade committe 15 times to get approved until his offer is finally accepted).

    Am I missing something here? Commissioners cant reject nullify trades right?

    we talking online leagues? if so i think the simple answer is ...

    no trading with the computer.

    like you said there's no way to put the toothpaste back in the tube is a trade is deemed bad. and considering trades are a pretty rare thing (outside of the draft pick game in April), I don't see that as a big deal.

    Just outlaw trading with the CPU. There will always be the users who try and take advantage of CPU trades no matter what you do to curtail that activity.

    After playing with the CPU trade logic, I see no reason to block User/CPU trades. The trade logic is tough.

    I disagree to a certain extent. With marquee guys, I agree the logic is good. But with veterans that are over the hill, I've still gotten decent picks for them where I shouldn't have necessarily. I think they should still be monitored personally but to each his own.
