And like I said above, if you're worried about that don't enter a trade unless it's based on an equal number of players.  Problem solved. 

How does sacrificing the ability to trade two players for one to avoid someone having the unfair (and new) ability to back out of a trade at the last minute solve the problem?  That just creates a different problem.

To your other question, as far as I know you can only vote against your own trade once it's accepted and hope for help.  Unless Brent steps in, there's no cancel button.

Rob, you can't be this dense.  Do you just want to have something else to complain about in this league?  Please tell me what the big difference is between these two scenarios:

#1 Team A is going to trade two players to Team B.  Team B is going to trade one player and drop one player.  All 4 players need to be named when the trade is agreed upon.  This is the way the site used to work.

#2 Team A is going to trade two players to Team B.  Team B is going to trade one player to Team A, but should also include another player they would have dropped in order to meet the roster requirements.  This is the way it works now.

How is naming a player to be dropped at the time you agree to the trade any different than just including that same player in the trade before agreeing to it?  In both cases Team B must get rid of one more player and name that player up front.  Team A still gets the guy they want.  No one can back out of the trade if you do it this way, so what are you worried about sacrificing?

If you receive a trade offer that is 2:1, you can simply counter with a 2:2 trade including the player to be dropped.  It is that simple if you're really worried about someone cancelling the trade.  How does this create a different problem for you? 

By the way, I specifically did not use Bob, Dan, Rick, or John, because I am sure all four of these guys are tired of getting their names dragged through the mud.

No, he is.  Just not in this instance or for the last couple weeks mostly.

I think what actually happened was that I had an open roster spot (that hadn't been filled from dropping Kenny Britt) when I had accepted the trade, but before the time it was processed a waiver claim that I had put in earlier in the week went through and my roster was filled.

Bye week starts next week and is seriously hurting my roster. Pretty sure my luck runs out.

5th in points scored, 1st in points scored against.  It's going to be a long year.

That just means you got all of the tough teams out of the way early.   ;)

I'm going back and forth on excitement over the bye weeks.  Sucks to have to sit your starters, but it's nice to be playing teams that have even bigger names out for the week (R. Rice, P. Hillis, D. Bryant, Balt Defense, etc.).

Hawaiian Curse a tough team?  LOL.  That was just bad luck.

Yeah, I haven't played the Cranes yet.  Marin's team (this week's opponent) scored over 100 last week.

I'm staring at 1-5 and I think I have a pretty decent team.

Look at the bright side, at least I didn't need to hear about your personal win streak against me.

It's true, you got me this time.  The baseball title took a lot of the sting out of that one. :)
