The trade deadline has already passed. If two teams log onto the website and basically "trade" through the waiver wire (after the waiver period ends) is that collusion?

Assuming it is a fair trade, I would say its shady, but I don't think I'd call it collusion. Does this league have a can't cut list?

1. a secret agreement, esp. for fraudulent or treacherous purposes; conspiracy: Some of his employees were acting in collusion to rob him.

2. Law. a secret understanding between two or more persons to gain something illegally, to defraud another of his or her rights, or to appear as adversaries though in agreement: collusion of husband and wife to obtain a divorce.

You're circumventing the rules (trade deadline), secretly (I presume), to gain something (a new player). You do the math.

If there are no rules preventing this, then it seems perfectly fine. To me it's yet another reason to not have FCFS add/drops. In my main league you get wed night and sat night to make waiver claims and that's it. So if this happened in my league, everybody will have a fair shot at bidding on the dropped players in question.

Is this the Farve for Tenn D/ST thread that was moved last night? And yes, I believe it is BS... Question is, do your league rules define this type of transaction as such?

Flat out collusion!! I dont understand how leagues would not have rules in place for this.

Leagues I play in we are not allowed to pick up a player till the following week.
