the Cotchin trade was fair but very dodgy

FS midfield isn't strong enough to be trading premiums for picks and to make it worse it was to the Premiership team

So its fair, but bad for the comp because the strong gets stronger and the weak get weaker? Maybe, but fair is fair.

You are aware FS could see that.

I think FS made the trade at his own volition. Although I strongly believe he spite traded Cotchin - Idk why, it was understandable with myself and Lindsay Thomas but surely Cotchin is one of the best mids you can get

Yeah I think both parties to a transaction should be providing explanations rather than just one. Still remember how Ele acquired Zac Clarke, Idk how we convinces people to make these trade tbh. Rarely trades but when he does it's legitimate, but almost always somewhat unfair - wouldn't call them completely unfair because there is some benefit obtained by the opposition and they obviously had to have some reason to accept it.

But I wouldn't have any objections to a rule change because I can't see it affecting myself   

Tbh most unfair Ele trade was the Claye Beams one hahahahahaha

the rule would be more about weaker teams trading out premiums when they cant afford to lose them especially if they not old and for picks etc

Yeah that makes sense. But then there is the question of whether or not it's right to interfere with coaching practices. The league is too even, and a big determinate in which teams succeed and which don't is their trading records. I think it's too close to actually doing a coaches job for them if users interfere. Again, it's like what ele callously stated "the strong get stronger and the weak get weaker". If we interfere with trades, there will be no weak and there will be no strong, it would increase importance on the draft and development and it could reach the point where trading is the difference between finishing 1st or 12th (basically, so high stakes that no one would want to trade). Tough decision, I'm not partisan to a reform or maintaining the current rules. I'm still on the fence about it - obviously the amount of discretion would be important.

We should go through it as a league to determine what needs to be done. But I agree completely with your proposal and think it's an important issue to consider.

Woah okay, I didn't noticed that his M6 was Sebastian Ross!!! I thought I was at a disadvantage this season fielding Dunstan in that role... Why did he trade Cotchin? Heeney is a gun but it's unlikely he will be ready or scoring high in his debut season...

it's like he's at the point where he is just trying to make up the numbers haha. Definite spite trade involving Cotchin. I agree he couldn't afford to make that trade, Ele you have literally disabled the Brooklyn Hawks hahahahahaha

Don't be ridiculous. He's getting three cracks at getting someone on par with Cotchin. As a developing side your looking for a wide talent pool to give yourselves the best chance of having 18 premos one day.
