*sighs, and shakes head*

If this keeps going, an already tense situation will likely become worse... 😕

Re: trading

Just saw your reply and thank you. I feel like I have gotten a bad rap because I offer many trades. I have been accused of taking advantage of new owners. I have never looked at a owners record before a trade EVER! I enjoy tinkering with my roster, why not. My feeling is someone or myself does not like offer just hit decline button.

Thanks buddy and I always will get back to you on any offers!

Re: Re: trading

I prefer to receive any offer over no offer - inactivity stinks. I understand that people are accustomed to negotiation so any offer can always be countered with explanation. Also, sometimes people misunderstand what the other team is looking for. I will admit that it is frustrating to receive an offer you think is lopsided, then find that the person is not willing to negotiate at all. It's got to be a win-win in the end.

Re: trading

This Sanfram is really annoying across the board. All he does is whine and in this case, try to start trouble.

Re: Re: trading

LOL , I'm a natural tinkerer !! I guess it takes one to understand one , right ?!!

Re: trading

I like to propose and make trades a lot as well, and sometimes there IS value in a 2-for-1 or 3-for-1 deal, especially if the deal is helping a team get players at a position of need.

I also agree that it can be very frustrating trading, as some guys just won't negotiate, or the ones that never reply to you. Has there ever been a discussion as to "correct trade ettiquette" More along the lines of knowing that your request was at least seen ??

Re: Re: trading

Wacky trade proposals are fine, as long as lopsided trade proposals aren't directed at someone who is new to the game.

When starting trade talks you should always ask for more than you think the other person is willing to give. That's just a solid, smart negotiation strategy.

Calling a guy out for giving lousy trade proposals is, also, part of the game. Some of the most entertaining back-and-forth happens when someone thinks they offered a good deal that is, in fact, a dried hunk of dung with a bow on it.

Re: trading

I got a trade offer of 8 players for 1 LOL

Re: trading

I don't mind someone thinking an offer I made was "terrible". I put a lot of thought in it and maybe my values differ from the other guy. Thats all well and good. But when a guy says the offer was "insulting", well you've just shown how sensitive you are and that owner need not worry of seeng any more offers from me.

Re: Re: trading

I had one owner who was interested in one of my payers make me an offer. I declined and gave the reason why. The main one is I really liked my player.
Well, he messaged me back " You know, it is ok to make a counter offer"
LOL. I wasn't looking to move. So I replied " I didn't know I was under any obligation to counter when I decline. I gave my reason for declining and thought that was enough to fulfill my courteous declination".
Guess not, he blocked me after that! LOL

Re: trading

*shrugs*

Guess the other person really wanted him too and didn't like being denied...

Re: Re: trading

All I do is whine???. You sound stupid to be honest. After I read your unsupported claim, I looked back at my posts. The ONLY one that has any resemblance of a whine, is when I complained about losing to filler teams. Get your facts straight boy. I realize my user name is awesome and gets in your head, but I've always been cordial and respectful on the boards----aside of the brief beef with cubsfan. Go Niners ****

Re: trading

Oh boy... Not again 😩

This will end badly, I can see it now...

Re: trading

Think that is why we get along so well, we like to tinker.

Re: Re: trading

I am also on board with NYCF, in my experiences he has been extremely fair and very open to options. I have no problems with my experiences with him.

Re: Re: trading

tgbirch, I just saw your comment from awhile back, and am a bit surprised. I guess we approach things differently. Truthfully, I do look at other teams & try to offer players I think that could help, but everyone has different likes or dislikes. It's all good & honestly even before seeing this I skip your teams in any trade request.

Good luck with your teams and wish you nothing but success.
