Blockbuster Trade - Should I allow or disallow?
Team 1 gives up: RG3, Felix Jones, & MJD
Team 2 gives up: Demaryius thomas, Marshawn Lynch, Philip Rivers

Some background: 1/2 pt PPR. Passing TDs 5, INTs -2. I don't want to take playoff standings into account, but Team 1 is fringe playoffs (5/12) and Team 2 is out of the playoffs (11/12).

EDIT: Team 1 does not have a strong backup QB (Romo).

    At face value this is essentially RGIII for Thomas and Lynch, which could be considered fair depending on each teams' needs. Some owners value certain players/positions above others, and some look at overall contribution of the players involved and whether the trade would be a net gain or loss. As league manager, the ONLY thing you should take into consideration when determining whether to veto is if this trade appears to be blatant collusion. If you don't feel that it is, then you have to allow this transaction. It's not your place to determine owners' respective player values. You just have to make sure they're not cheating.

    +1, ^ described perfectly. Don't take their standings into account, just the value of the players.

    Absolutely agree. Also don't see anything wrong with this trade. Someone giving up RG3 when he's trying to make a playoff push is not colluding. Gotta allow it.

    Gotta allow it. Seems ok to me. He is giving up RGIII and is in playoff contention. SO he is saying he will sacrifice top 3 QB for some RB and WR strength.

    It looks like Team 2 is helping out a friend. i assume team 1 has another good QB option (besides receiving Rivers).

    Nah he's got Romo.

    i'd rather play Romo then Rivers so i bet Rivers will just sit on his bench.

    I'd agree. Relative to RG3 either is a huge dropoff, for the sake of Cory's question.

    I think it makes team 1 way better I would disallow

    Why? Isn't the point of trading to improve your team? Why else would you try to trade?

    It doesn't seem like blatant collusion. Allow it.
