But I also feel like those trades need to be critiqued MUCH MORE harshly because the CPU isn't capable of speaking for itself or even expressing if it has any interest in the deal to begin with.
What further becomes a problem is when the trade hinges on draft picks. We saw this in the NHL 13 league where people would grab top players from vacant teams by offering a package that mainly consisted of draft picks (sometimes 3-4 seasons away). It became pretty obvious what people were trying to do, and it makes for a very uncomfortable position not only in the trade committee, but in the league in general.
So, I feel like we need to re-evaluate if allowing trading with CPU teams is a good idea...and how we would want to approach these deals if we do decide to allow it. The reason I'm bringing it up is because there's a proposal on the table right now (not naming teams or players involved), and I want to make sure we're all on the same page before we venture down that road. So, feel free to sound off on this subject. I feel like this goes without saying, but the more thought out your case is, the more weight it will carry.
So you mean my Tom Brady for Willis MaGahee trade won't pass?
