I think there are two main issues and I have strong opinion on one, less so on the other.

1. Should coaches be able to void other trades
My opinion is very strongly no. We had this debate years ago when we scrapped the veto system. There is no way any of us know how a trade pans out - who I am to say that Stephens and Pick 5 won't be better than Cogs for these teams? What time frame do I use? Who is pick 5 used on? Look back through some of the trades that got veto'd early on and some of them ended up being unfair in the opposite way to what people argued! If one coach wants to take a risk, it's their team. And it might pay off and it might not. But it's their choice to make.

It is also impossible to value players the same for different teams since all our situations are different. Maybe one coach needs a DEF or really needs MARKS and so they value one player higher than other coaches might. Or one team wants to improve the age profile of their team while another just needs draft picks. You can't restrict their ability to trade because you don't think it's fair.

Also - we've all got skin in the game! If I'm fighting for top 2 and another top team makes a play for a good player, of course I think it's unfair.

The only caveat I would have is that the commissioner should have to power to veto if there is suspected collusion but we should never be able to stop a trade because we think it's not fair. If any of us had that much foresight into player value we would be working for clubs and not playing fantasy on a forum. I'm pretty sure I had a trade veto'd years ago which was something like

2. Should new coaches be allowed to trade straight away
This one I have less of an opinion on. I can see the value in letting a new coach settle in, understand their list, understand the league dynamics, scoring etc. Perhaps we could agree to some kind of 'cooling off' period for new coaches just to protect against fire sales or coaches taking advantage of someone new to the league.
Sorry, I'm late to the party on all the commotion. This is really well summed up Daysy_12.

A question for coaches who have been around for awhile...

What are our rules regarding future pick trading? I think I know but just want to see what others think or know... Rockford you are exempt
I thought we were meant to have either a first or second in a future draft.

But also kinda thought that went out the window at some point?

We said @#$& let them trade all future picks
I remember we can trade all future picks. Just trying to recall if we can now trade 2021 and 2022 future picks during the season or if we're limited to 2021 futures until after the 2020 season is complete (and then the 2022's go live). Don't want to advise anyone the wrong way.

2021 is not future picks though, they are just picks 😜

I am pretty sure it is only 1 draft ahead (future) you can and should be allowed to trade.

I call the draft 2020 as that is the year it is in.

The future draft is 2021 and we can trade all picks in it by the sounds of it.

2022 or the third draft in order is off limits until 2020 is completed ect.

Yes, I believe this is what we currently allow, but I see the 2020 draft as already been finished, as we held it in 2020 (even though the players were drafted to AFL clubs in 2019)

With games running for a shorter amount of time, it will make the stat averages drop a bit, which may be a bit disappointing at first glance!
I was wondering why last night was so low scoring and it did not click. 😅 Why are they even playing shorter quarters I dont really see why they're doing that, like how does shorter quarters have anything to do with the virus...?
