    sure; I did not expect the offer to be accepted. But he was the only SG out there in the range of Millsap (even if above) so I had to try at least.

    Drummond started hitting threes too. And Monroe started to his fritos. So watch out. I'm coming after y'all with my Motown twin towers. :6shoot:

    Hey, the trade you offered me was fair. David Lee finally produced for you last night, huh? He needs the flu every game....well unless he is playing against me. lol. By the way, both of us would have awesome records this week had we not played each other last week! :)

    Using my own personal system it is really a tossup.

    Milsap Is a cooler name than Bryant.

    But Kobe Is a cooler name than Paul.

    Ralphie just be happy I labeled you horse trader and not a horse thief.

    Horse traders get razzed. Horse thiefs get hanged.

    I always use the blush test before proposing a trade. If I can offer it without blushing then I do so. Some guys like Laimbeer are just too dumb to see how it a trade will help them. So I always send an explanation. Plus after the explanation you can Look in the mirror and see if you are blushing.

    I always like to send an informal offer through the forum first. That way We can discuss it without Worrying about pushing the wrong button. I love trading with Jammer time and a couple of other people too. We make what we think are fair offers and 123 the deal is done. I always hope the trade works Out great for the other guy too. I'm not saying you don't do that. It is just that it would work for you too. It's just that now that the topic is up for discussion I wanted to throw that out there.

    I need more time. You said Jerebko blocks more shots, right? I mean...not just with his throat...

    stop being obsessed with the pushing the wrong button thing, there is alsways the possibility for the league to reject a trade; plus, you d have to puhs the wrong button twice! Anyhow, is anyone interested in dumping a SG or a C?

    Im trying to recall any ocassion where a league I was un actually successfully gained enough support to reject a trade.

    Also: The way I recall it:


    With trades it is one push.

    With free agents two pushes.

    Thanks for the free psychological analysis, though.

    it's free, Viennese have been obsessed with analyzing each and everyone on a non-scientific basis ever since Sigmund Freud! Anyhow, if someone said in the forum that he accidentally pushed the wrong button I would support him in stepping back from the trade. I truly hope you don't think I am gambling on people committing mistakes.

    I don't have any issues with you or your trades. They've gotten better actually. Keep them coming. :)

    Actually, as bad as it was, Milsap for Kobe was actually pretty fair for a Ralphi trade. I do think he offers many trades hoping you might be half asleep or drunk and actually hit the "Accept Trade" button.

    Our schedules are weird. I've never seen schedules like that. I play Ralphie twice in the first 10 weeks. I do not play pink gators until week 20. The last week. I don't care either way. It just surprised me. But I should not have picked Laimbeer for rivals week because it means that I only get to play him once?

    It's okay that I do not understand how the schedule works. I have no idea what I'm doing anyhow. :)

    Eight guys for the Gators last night versus one for the Sprocket. Big Al held them off at well as he could but we're still down 2-7 after one night and the Gators have more games the rest of the week.

    Scheduling loss.

    I hate when that happens to me. It's even worse when the next week you run into another team that also was shorted the prior week so even when you have a lot of make up games, they do too, and so you cant ever gain it back.

    It is a daily league. You do have 8 moves available to you each and every week. The term "tatering" was named after you, by the way.
