we're gonna ask the fantasy cops way. Go. Ladies and gentlemen, send us your questions. What fantasy cops in the subject line League disputes E have one that I wanted. Toe read. First, let me see if I could find it really quick. Way go. It is from Stephanie. Subject line. I'm sleeping with the commissioner. My husband offered me a trade, and I wanna make sure it's fair and also beneficial to me. Rest of season People in the league already accused me of sleeping with the commissioner. Would you give up Christian McCaffrey to get Devin Singletary and James Robinson? I am two and three. I have Gaskin, Harris, Kelly Heckler So wants the running back. Help now Give up. McCaffrey. Get Singletary and James Robinson. And who were the other running backs she had again outside of McCaffrey? Um, she has Gaskin, Damian Harris, Josh Kelley and also Meckler. So yeah, two and three. Singletary and Robinson Robinson is a borderline top 12 running back. Singletary's probably more of a low on Derby to with Zach Moss back, I would I think that's a fair trade. I don't I don't think it's egregious, and McCaffrey still might be out for the next two weeks, right? I think it's fine. It's gonna work out, I think for your husband. But it's fine. It's fine. You need people to send you a better trade offer if that's the case, so people try and match it or or, you know, offer you something better. I don't think it's egregious, though, and you need a win. It's really good matchup for Robinson. I probably wouldn't do the trade myself, but I could see why you would want to do this tree. All right, let's do another one from Hunter in Chicago yesterday, I had a trade that was accepted from another player and got directly vetoed by the commissioner, uh, thus canceling the trade immediately. I was giving up Clyde Edwards, the Layer Devante Parker and Evan Ingram on. I was getting George Kittle. Keep in mind, this guy's team was so banged up he had to start Darrington Evans last week at RB two. So the commissioner is saying that I took advantage of the guy because of the Levian Bell news signing, but the trade was accepted before the signing happened, and in my opinion that shouldn't matter. I had the sense that the Chiefs were going to sign Levian, so I wanted to move Edwards ealier at his value before the signing. And it's not my fault. If the other party did not know about the Levian news. The trade was vetoed not by the league vote, but by the Commish. And now the big news is out. That Levian sign should a commission have this power over the whole league? Should the canceling be reversed and put through should trade voting even be a thing? What should be done? And again, the trade. He gave up Clyde Edwards, the Layer, Devante Parker and Evan Ingram for George Kittle. So let me get this straight. The commissioner thinks that the person who is giving up George Kittle got ripped off in this trade because yes, it seems, it seems like a pretty good like I would argue that maybe the person giving up Kittel is actually getting the better side of this trade. Like, yes, Clyde Edwards. The lair is probably not a top 12 running back anymore. That's fine. It's probably more of an R B two, but you're getting a wide receiver to and okay, a extreme mobile Evan Engram, who has good matchups coming up. So you like you have injuries and you're trying get as much as you can for George. I don't think this is a crazy trade and any commissioner who does this. I'm the commissioner of the league. I have the final say on whether a trade goes through, but vetoes are not there to Okay, The commissioner thinks that this is a lopsided trade, or even if the league thinks it's a lopsided trade. That's not what vetoes air there for. Just collusion and collusion alone is not quite if I If someone in the podcast league traded, um, traded, uh, have Sammy Watkins, but Sammy Watkins for Dalvin Cook, I'd veto it. That's a terrible trade. It has to be that obviously horrible. But first of all, it's not that bad of a trade. But s o. E think the big issue here hunter, is that the commissioner doesn't like you? You did something to the commissioner. You need to look at your relationship with the commission and figure out what happened here. But in general, Levian Bell gets released. Rumors abound about the chiefs. You've got this thought he's gonna go to the Chiefs. I'm gonna trade Clyde Edwards dealer now to ah, fantasy manager who doesn't really consider it. You know, it doesn't consider the Levy. I'm belt situation potentially. I don't have a problem with that. I really don't. That's that's a smart move. That's a shrewd move. There's a difference between that and like, Oh, Levy on Bell just got injured and I the news just broke. I'm gonna go offer him to somebody and rip this fantasy manager often trick him. I don't think that's a different scenario. This is a commissioner. You suck, you're going to jail. Alright from Alex waited a 14 team dynasty start of the season, and the commissioners selected E won't say the name a different fantasy football platform over Sleeper and CBS. After Week five, we realized a couple managers weren't setting their lineup and there was a very low level of trade activity. Most of us have been playing together for 10 plus years, so this was strange and result is that the platform is terrible and it was deterring people from being active. We're scrapping the league, cutting some of the managers and drafting another start up next offseason. Some of the people still want the season to count, while over half want their money refunded. I understand playing out the season and redraft, but in dynasty format, that's not right. I've already sold a few pieces to gain picks and get younger. So basically I'm throwing away my buy in. Should the season be played out, or should all money be refunded? This is a mess, man. And this this is one of the major issues with starting up a dynasty. League is e mean, regardless of platform. You have to have people who are into it, you know, that are dedicated and like this is gonna happen in the first season, let alone explain this to me, Frank. What? I understand they set up a dynasty league. The platform stinks. People aren't active, he says. We're scrapping the league, cutting some of the managers and drafting another start up next off season. And then he goes on to say that he's already sold a few pieces to gain picks and get younger. What am I missing here? Doesn't that seem contradictory? It does. Yeah. They should probably just I would say Yeah, just scrap it. But if you're gonna do that, then like, obviously everyone has to get their money back. So you know what, Alex? You don't get the fantasy cops. You get the grammar police because you butcher this on. It makes no sense to May. But if you're scrapping the league, e think you should probably just refund everybody's money? Yeah, or at least were fun. Most of it maybe keep like, less than half 30% whatever some by it, and play it out. But you should give people their money back. It's a mess at this point, like this guy traded away players for picks and stuff like everything's all over the place is a mess. Like I don't see how you could really play it up. Oh, yeah? Well, the grammar police air are happy.
