regardless it didn't even push the trade through, and he didn't even play. I'm pretty sure the system is faulty given that a trade that was accepted on tuesday has to wait until one of the games has finished, which doesn't allow for either player to play them simply because it's a Thursday night game. I accepted the trade intending to play Kelvin, and then seeing the trade wouldn't be completed until friday kind of fucks me over AFTER accepting the trade.
I talked it over with @Jeff The Flying Shark in teamspeak and he didn't think it really was an issue, considering it would allow all of us to play the players we intended to trade for. I can ask about rule changes in the future but it wasn't like I was deliberately attempting to swing the game in my favor, I was just trying to play someone I traded for this week.
