Do you have this owner in your league? (1 Viewer)

The one who is addicted to draft picks? The one who trades away a good team who he built through the draft by obtaining draft picks, only to trade those players for more high draft picks? I love owners like this in the leagues I play in. We have 2 of them in MOX 1, and at least one in Champagne Classic, and a couple in the Fantasy Legends Leagues. Are you like that? Or do you have owners like that in your league? One thing I like about them is that they are predictable in that you can usually work a deal for a very good player if they are convinced the pick you trade them is a top 5 pick. Some owners are addicted to trading in general, and some are just addicted to the draft. I believe it is the gambler gene in these owners. I believe these owners love to gamble at anything.

There's nothing wrong with it, because everyone enjoys our hobby the way they want to. It's just an observation. The only problem I have with some of these owners are the ones who quit after 3 or 4 years and leave the team with some high picks and not much else.

Actually wish I had somebody like that in my league. Instead I have a guy who despite his complete lack of football understanding refuses to make trades regardless of how reasonable they are. He doesn't even refuse the trades he just doesn't respond to them at all. Not to hijack your thread. Reading your post got me thinking about it again.

I agree, there are a couple like that in the leagues I play in, namely Champagne Classic, and a few in the leagues I commish, but not many. Overall most respond to trade offers, but you have some bad owners in every league. You just hope they leave the league soon, to be replaced by owners who are more active.

I think (hope) the owner we have that doesn't respond is technologically challenged and computer/internet deficient. And a drunkard (not that there’s anything wrong with that). :bs:

Damn. Do you live in Austin?You might be in my league.

Seriously, people not at least responding to trade offers seriously irritates me.

Tell me no. I don't care. It's better than nothing. At least then I know if I need to work on a counteroffer or what.

 
I've been like that in a couple leagues, to a degree. I had a core group I wouldn't trade (easily) but the rest I would trade for picks. Some would bust, some would do well, and in the end, I was better for it.

We also have owners who don't like to draft, period. They'll swap their picks every year for the best offer they can get. In the end, they have contending teams full of decent players, but few or no exceptional young players. Their teams look boring, but it works for them.

 
I am trying that this year but traded all my older players ( TO, Rudi, Tony G) and young players (DMAC for Mendy/1st) Matt Leinart)....so the only good players I traded were TO and Tony G....have 5 1st next year so we will see where this leads me :)

Will this really help in a keeper league? What's likely to be available in the first round?

LOL!I've been playing with one of these guys for almost 10 years. One of my best friends actually, and he simply drives me crazy. All he does is trade, trade, trade with no real focus on building a team. He'll trade for one guy so he can simply turn around and trade that same guy to somebody else. He drafts with trading in mind. "Why did you draft that guy when you have this, this, this...?"

"So I can trade him."

:thumbup:

I know exactly what you mean, I have to offer completely lopsided trades for them to even think about it. And that is all they do is think about it. There is only 2 people in my league that can trade reasonably. The others are scared to trade it seems. They at least respond to them with a rejection as soon as they seem them.For example, I knowingly offered a trade to someone that I knew would reject it.Marshawn Lynch Jay Cutler Anquan BoldinMcFaddenfor Terrell OwensDidn't even acknowledge it.Sorry, Not trying to hijack either just had to rant.

I'm that owner...but i've built a juggernaut by doing so.

QB Romo, Roeth, Cutler

RB Adrian Peterson, Steven Jackson, Marshawn Lynch, Reggie Bush

WR Larry Fitz, Braylon Edwards, Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, Greg Jennings

TE Winslow, VD

I'd say it's a viable strategy when you know what teams are gonna suck to get their picks and you know how to predict the future like i do.

I will tell you next year. I am in a dynasty league and I like to trade back in the first round as long as I get value.

ie: this year I traded 1.3 for TO, Rudi and 1.6, also traded 1.1 for J Cutler, 1.4 and 1st next year.

Why the phrase "Easy there"? I would simply like to see such a roster, becasue I've never seen one that good. Also, in the OP I made mention of owners who trade for picks, build a good team, then trade that team away for more picks. Not owners who trade for picks and build a good team that's it.Edited to add, is there a reason why you addressed me by the number? Do you do that a lot?

What's my number? :goodposting:
21066. OK.I used to trade for picks, then I adopted a different straategy, and then I started winning games and playing in championships.I still get picks when it's prudent, in the league I focus on most I have 2 1sts, a 2nd and 3 3rds. Not by trying to acquire picks, but I try to get owners to toss them into seal deals.

Your number defines you. A lower number indicates that you are more intelligent, more attractive, wealthier, and better than someone with a higher number.In other words, Lower Numer = Better Than.If your number has five digits and starts with a 3, you are essentially worthless. OTOH, if your number has four digits, you are far superior to the majority of humans.If your number has just three digits, you are a god.

I don't look at numbers being important. If I did I would be signed on as JohnnyU all the time, which has a number of 867. What number someone is doesn't mean squat.

He's being sarcastic. However, there are jerks on this board that think that because they joined early and got a low number, they are superior to others. It is unfortunate as someone's number on this board means nothing. There are highly intelligent people joining every day.

I try to learn from these people, not give them crap about their number. There's nothing intelligent to be gained from that.

"Easy there" is a TV character reference - I think.I wish I had dealt my really high picks away in my dynasty league - I always get guys who get hurt: Rogers, KJones, Winslow.I've been trying to accumulate 2nd round picks, as it's an IDP league, and that sems to be something I'm better at judging.

:rolleyes: I'd like to see your team in comparison to the other teams in your league.

I concur. I can't see how you could build this roster without a lot of gullible, inexperienced players.

I don't believe in numbers, I just go with my gut...

Is this the Miller High Life of fantasy football leagues?
