Listen to this BS....

I sold a player who I had posted for sale multiple times (recently listed at $5M and $3M respectively, a few weeks ago). His name was Shelby Wampler and you can see in my transaction history. He was 4*, but also had 20-int, 20-con, and 20 speed only 21 y/o, capped at strength but perfect for a WR or CB dual positional threat (which is how I was training him) or even a 20-20-20 QB. I valued him highly, so I walked his price down to $2.5M to see how the market valued him. I was either going to sell him in this range or I was going to keep him and continue developing. Because, again... I valued him highly.

I had not 1, but 2 bidders on him in this range. So now collectively, 3 managers ALSO valued him highly.

6 months ago, I had posted a thread asking community opinion on what to do with this player because originally I wanted him for RB or QB. Therefore I engaged the community for opinion on position (RB, WR, CB, QB, etc). AFTER I had multiple bids on the player and he was on his way out the door, I posted an update in that thread saying he was being sold.

Now I get a message from someone, (not saying their name since that is against the rules) we will call him "Mr.BS" saying they reported me because they don't agree with the bid price (I'm paraphrasing, he wrote a paragraph of garbage).

When did people become the judge, jury, and executioner of transactions simply because THEY DON'T AGREE WITH IT. I don't have to justify anything to you. I valued this player more highly than you because I have a passing team. You may not value a certain player as highly and that is you prerogative, but don't come stalking my team and reporting me multiple times because you don't agree with the prices that MULTIPLE OTHER coaches agreed with!

If there is a bid price you don't like, then don't bid! It's really that simple. Not everyone is going to agree on how to value players and what attributes are most important.

"Mr.BS" also informed me that there is a group of people reporting the transaction. So apparently this is how people spend their time? Trying to get other managers punished because they simply don't agree with something?

The community is already small enough and this is what you do? Seriously?

This is nuts. I don't appreciate this at all.

This is truly MADNESS of the transfer market, as this thread is titled.



UPDATE: "Mr.BS" has now privately apologized for this.

The transfer market drives some people to madness (hence the title of this thread).

Not sure why the mods would get involved?

If you're referring to the post, then it follows the rules, does not name any managers, and is on topic (Madness of Transfer Market).

Otherwise, I am not sure what else you're referring to.

BTW - Best of luck Saturday. Big game coming up.

I have a theory about Shmert real identity... I think he must be Lee Suggs. He uses all his laughing posts to hide his real purpose here that is to follow the main topics on forum.

I think your close..... but not quite right.... he is actually the owner of the game, he tries to misdirect us all the time, but always seems to come out with little bits of info that seem stupid but a year later turn out to be true..... ;-)
