Discussion: Putting High Rated Players on Trade Block First


JJ Smitty
Thu Oct 10 05:23 AM

How does everyone feel about a rule where you put highly rated and high potential players on the trade block first before trading so the whole league has a shot at them.

Example would be an 80+ player or a young player with ton's of potential.

Lets Discuss;

I'll need to hear some discussion before voting, as I want to understand the genesis of this rule.

Is this so everyone has a shot to make an offer on a stud?

I've gone into trade talks about a middling player posted on the block and walked away spending multiple 1st's on a stud that wasn't even up for trade. It just happened through trade discussion. I'd hate to see that dynamic disappear due to a rule like this. I see two potential outcomes in a scenario like this due to a rule like the one proposed:

1. Just like BS interviews in the NFL to meet candidacy requirements, a player would be put on the block with no intent in doing any deal aside from the one requiring the block posting.

2. The impromptu discussion of a player that was not originally on the block gets sniped out from under the owner who piqued the interest of the selling owner.

Both of these outcomes are negatives for the buying team and will damper trading IMO. However, if the benefits outweigh the negatives, I'd be all fo rit. I just need to understand what this fixes.

by TurfToe at Thu Oct 10, 2019 07:45 AM

Yeah, the simple explanation would be Yes Turf, it would be so everyone has a shot to make an offer on a stud player(80+ rated).

This trade rule wouldn't be for Joe Blow (50 or 60 player) it's more about those elite players.

by JJ Smitty at Thu Oct 10, 2019 10:56 AM

My two cents is that there shouldn't need to be a rule about this if the owners are trying to do what's right for their own team. When it becomes a problem is if there's unfair player dumping that specifically helps another team. I have no problem if a fair price is paid in a trade without me knowing the player was available. Happens all the time in the NFL. And yes, there are trades made in the NFL that are for less value than what another team offered.......specifically if that offer came in from a division rival.

by Aamalin at Thu Oct 10, 2019 11:11 AM

I agree with Aamalin, there shouldn't need to be a rule, that's why I turned this into a discussion instead of a vote. I do think there needs to be a discussion on this topic and that's all.

by JJ Smitty at Thu Oct 10, 2019 12:57 PM

I would just echo what Aamalin said. Shouldn't need to be a rule unless there is unfair player dumping or someone trying to take advantage of a new or inexperienced owner.

I would guess too that most owners would realize that you would probably get more competitive offers by actually posting said player on the trade block rather than taking an offer that comes along.

If you wanted a rule to prevent or minimize any unfair trading I would say that the commish has final say and could veto a trade if needs be.

Or the commish could put a trade up for vote if the trade is deemed to be potentially questionable. Then the league would vote. Kind of like what most fantasy football leagues do.

by bbriders at Fri Oct 11, 2019 07:39 PM

Personally, I like the idea of targeting a team for a trade, having spent the time to determine who has what I need, so that I can fashion a trade to accomplish that. Tha trade board is fine, but I think both aspects of trading work and should be usable by all owners.

Thanks Turf, I know how you love to follow the rules.

by JJ Smitty at Wed Sep 04, 2019 08:32 AM

You know I love to stir the pot when the opportunity arises.

There was no one to make quit in this year's draft so I am trying to stay busy.

The draft chat sure is less dramatic when all the new guys are cool cats.
