Trader’s Corner: The Salesman
We deal with trades here and part of that deal is interacting with other human beings (usually online). One of my favorite parts of playing in a dynasty league is the relationships built with the other owners over a long period of time. Like anything else, there will be those who hit it off and find making trades easy to do. Then there will be others who are less casual and who make trading difficult at times. One of the tactics that I find a little irritating is the “sale”. This is when an owner approaches with an offer and a pitch (usually a long one) that describes exactly why I should be over the moon to receive an offer such as this. It turns me off because it assumes I can’t see my own team’s strengths and weaknesses. If it’s a good trade, you shouldn’t have to sell it.
