I get that Hemingway is your brother (which honestly, doesn't make you a very impartial observer), but you shouldn't be the one explaining how the trade could go through. As the trade was proposed, none of that information was presented as a necessity for the trade to work. So, on its face value, the proposal that was presented WILL NOT work.
If the presented idea requires it to be a multi-part trade and that the Jets mangle their roster, cutting an additional $4 million of salary to make room for these players, then that needs to be a part of the proposal. Honestly, that's probably a bigger issue than the players involved in the trade. This is the first year we've had to deal with contracts in Madden, so these kinds of things never needed to be considered before. But in general, people don't just cut players from their team any time they feel like it. Some might see this as a means of circumventing the cap...so that's DEFINITELY something that needs community input.
As for player ratings, you're just being argumentative here. Stop. The format for presenting trades is listed in the OP. It's only reasonable for people to list the overall ratings as they would relate to our online franchise. Yes, that's different for each team, but how can someone judge a trade for Tom Brady if they don't realize that in the Jets CURRENT system, he's not as valuable? It's not a perfect system, but it's also the first time we've had to deal with players being valued differently.
Your comment of "I'm pretty sure everyone realizes trades can't be done/go through until the league starts." again...somewhat argumentative. You JUST got done instructing someone to PM me to get me to "send it through". I guess you feel comfortable enough to just tell people how things are and talk about how you think things should work, but try to recognize your place here. You're a new member. You're not a co-commissioner. You're not in charge of this league. Answering people's questions and then making me have to follow that up with an answer of my own just creates more work for me.
I appreciate your enthusiasm and your feedback, but please just tone it down a notch. I'm doing the best I can here, and all I've seen from you lately is argumentative comments and dissention. I've got the interests of 31 other people to try to protect here. If you think it's that simple and you could do a better job running a league, you're welcome to go do so.
