I assume this trade was reversed due to not being approved by the league but how was it proposed/accepted when one of the involved teams was a CPU team?

it was reversed. we need to determine if it is "fair", whether or not the CPU will except

I'm not in the league but i feel CPU Trades shouldn't be allowed. Simply because the numbers line-up doesn't mean its a fair trade.

Please no CPU trades. In Bobby's last league we tried to come up with a system to fairly incorporate CPU trades and then have them voted on by a panel, it still didn't seem fair. If this is going to happen we at least need to have a poll. I just don't see any possible way to allow CPU trades without people stealing young players.

it really doesnt matter to me but i will post a poll

I think CPU trades are wrong. That is how one team can really strip another of good players to beef up their team. We had a guy try in Season 1 pull some iffy trades with his friend who really wasnt there to play, he was there to draft good players and then trade them to his friend in order to beef up the other team. When we found out they both ended up leaving the league. This is essentially the same thing. You see this happening in some Fantasy Football leagues. It isnt allowed in most and frowned upon in all. I honestly think that we should not allow it in any way, even with a poll. The CPU teams are there to try to offer some sort of challenge for everyone. You strip their teams and you will see scores of 100-3 and 80-10 and we dont want that. That is without trying to run up the score by the way. Please dont even bother putting up a poll. This just should be a not allowed. PERIOD.

The other side of the argument is, do you really want all that talent going to waste on a team that is still gonna get beat up week in and week out? Even on All-Madden I was able to post 100pts on some of the most stacked teams in the league. The CPU really has no bearing on the league IMO. I think this would also be beneficial to someone who got screwed by the draft if they were not present. It's just a way to encourage activity among human players.

I know there is no trade logic in online franchise mode, you can trade peyton manning for drew stanton and it will go through. Thats why almost every online franchise has them between users only or not at all.

Yes. I would rather it be that way. Because it makes everyones teams unstackable. I have many unknowns on my team. You have many unknowns on your team. This makes the game more intriguing. More like chess and less like checkers. I now have the ability to surprise you with a normal everyday play and so do you. Its not just all about the players on your team, but also about how you "coach" the team. Thats the same reasoning for me with the All-Pro / All-Madden argument. All Madden you dont have to think about what your defensive strategy is because the A.I. does all the work for you on pass plays. All-Pro you need to know how to read the offense and pick your defensive play accordingly. You blitz, you may get burned unless you know your players strengths and pick a blitz that plays to it. All-Pro is for the player who truly wants to try to play true simulation style games. All-Madden is more for the guy who loves football but doesnt know the difference between zone and man defense.
All I am saying is that having the teams more even and having the CPU at least have a chance at winning a game, look at those guys who played the CPU and restarted their games. They were losing and that shows that with the way the teams are set, the playing field is level for everyone. Yes some people have more star power than others, but without key supporting players, they are not as hard to beat as you think.
Just an opinion. Not to be taken as a statement of fact. I have talked with others in this league who agree and are even more gung ho on this ideaology than I am. I think its all a great debate, and fortunately for all of us, there will never be a right or wrong when it comes to the answers. Good luck to all owners no matter how good or bad you think your team is. Its all moot until the final whistle blows.

I'd have to disagree with you on the All-PRO vs All-Madden argument. You actually have it backwards. On All-Madden the Offense has to make a read, making it more in line with real football. In All-Pro, every game I have had and even watched have been the exact same style of offense. In All-Pro, all you need is a team stacked with speed guys and thats it. Name a pro team that is based on speed alone like we see every Madden draft? The Raiders. Now name a team that has been in the Playoffs year after year...All-Pro is offensive minded allowing those with less skill in deciphering the play to shine, while All-Madden is defensive minded making you earn what you get.
