This. f**k this s**t. People tanking for picks. f**k that.
Exactly. What is this.. the NBA?
I've already spoken my piece on this before. I oppose trading picks during the season. I did it on my accidental trade, but any trade I intentionally accept during a season will never involve a pick. IMO its not the way a gentleman plays the game.
I just think trading a pick for a player during a season is far too imbalanced for that given year. Plus I think it goes fundamentally against the unwritten rule of never intentionally tank in fantasy sports.
I mean if trading picks is permissible, then why shouldn't the bottom 4 teams intentionally create the worst roster possible (and although my record says I'm doing this, I assure you I am not intentionally doing it). Either playing to increase your draft position is permissible or its not.
I just don't get it. I think trading picks during a season just ruins the sense of fair play in fantasy sports. Its made even worse because really we don't know if people will stick around year-in and year-out. If a person makes bad trades and then quits, it screws up the entire league.
Edit: To give you a hypothetical situation, if I trade McCoy to LA for his 1st round pick, how is that any different from me just putting McCoy on my bench to make sure I get the first pick.
