There will be trading allowed in ATD2011. Now we need to know how trades will be handled. First of all: - Trading of all your picks to another team for all of theirs, prior to either of you making a selection, is allowed and will not count as a trade if we vote on a limited trading option. - There will be a trading committee that can veto questionable trades as quickly as possible, meaning a trade has to be instantly reworked and if it can't be, the pick still stands... only it's made by the team that was trying to trade the pick. Don't like it? Don't make a lopsided deal that is at risk of veto. So here are some options: - 1. Wild West. Anyone can trade with anyone, as often as possible. - 2. Limited Trading. Three trades per team, maximum. - 3. Trade conference, no-trade conference. (this has other logistical issues, such as what to do about draft order since the divisions are supposed to be based on it, as well as that it's doubtful exactly 20 teams will want to be in the no-trade conference, but if this option is the most popular we can work these things out) - keep in mind that if this option is the most popular the trading conference rules will be whichever option is the next-most popular. - 4. Wild west, but no trading out of a round. (really really safe trades only!) - this could be done in conjunction with options 2 and/or 3, but there should be no need to do that since these trades will have little more than cosmetic effects on the draft. rank the four choices. I'll assign points to them using a 3-2-1-0 system and hopefully within 24 hours we know what's happening.
