After speaking with Keller briefly regarding how we handle the trade policies entering HaW16 and how we handle the committee, he suggested I bring it to the public and start an open debate. Currently, we're generally assuming that the trade committee will remain the same assuming the previous members wish to continue in their role. Currently, that group is comprised of greatnessdc, Troy J., Coachmedicis, Keller, and myself. Currently, we've used this as our guideline: Trades How to Submit a Trade to the Trade Committee The New Trade Tier Guideline Trades may be HUM to HUM or HUM to CPU Draft day pick for pick are open/free for all and not subject to committee approval. However this means player trades must not be included on draft day. All Player trades are subject to trade committee approval Age, Salary (w/ years remaining), and overall must be included with each player. We will use a tiered trade limit system to prevent multiple blockbuster trades year after year. This isn't final but these are general guidelines to follow. Tier 1 - Multiple 1st & 2nds or discretion of TC (if its a high #1 for example). 1 every 2 seasons. Tier 2 - 1st or 2nd, again at discretion of TC. 2 per season Tier 3 - 3rd/4th rounders. 2 per season Tier 4 - Unlimited Additionally, you may use a higher tier trade in place of a lower tier trade if you so choose. For example instead of doing a Tier 1, in its place, you could do 3 tier 2's and forgo your Tier 1. The same applies for Tier 3 and using Tier 2's All trades will be sent via PM to the trade committee. There is to be no arguing with these guys, it takes time out of their day to judge trades. Treat them with respect. If a trade is approved, post in in the thread for that season in the Team Management Forum. Additionally, we've also seen topics like this occur concerning players feeling the TC was inconsistent in their rulings and that precedence should matter when it comes to trade rulings. I'd like to encourage a polite discussion in this thread to get your opinion as members of HaW16 on what you would like to see. Do you want a more detailed record of trades to be kept, both approved and denied? If so, what would you want to see that wasn't already done? What is a reasonable turn around time for a trade to be approved and denied? Do you think the tier system we have in place needs to be flushed out more? Do you feel that certain tiers should be allowed more frequently or less frequently? Are there any groups of players that you feel should be moved to a different tier? Please keep the discussion civil. Thanks.
