Yahoo! Trade Review
- How to purchase a trade review
- How to protest a trade review
Yahoo! Trade Review is included with Yahoo! Pro Leagues.
Purchasing a trade review
Commissioners may purchase trade review for their league from their sports Premium Add-Ons page:
Yahoo! Trade Review will not be available to purchase in Fantasy Hockey or Fantasy Basketball leagues.
If Trade Review is purchased, once any trade offer is accepted, the entire league will be notified so that all managers will have the opportunity to review the deal. In a custom league, the league commissioner can set the review period to be anywhere between one and seven days.
Protesting a trade
If a manager feels that the deal is unfair, he/she can lodge an official protest with the Yahoo! Sports League Office.
Every protest (which must contain a description of why the protesting manager feels the trade should be vetoed) will be reviewed by members of the Yahoo! Sports staff following the 2-day review period.
As a result, it may take an additional day for your trade to process, since the Yahoo! Sports League Office has a 24-hour period to review the trade and either accept or reject it.
It is not the purpose of the League Office to prevent coaches from making unwise trades, but rather to simply ensure that all coaches in a league are competing on a level and fair playing field.
All decisions on trade protests are final. Explanations about why specific trades were approved or rejected are not provided.
Note: If your league does not purchase Yahoo! Trade Review, and If your league commissioner selected either "League Votes" or "Commissioner Control" as your league's trade review option, the Yahoo! league office cannot and will not be involved in the review process. If, however, your league uses "League Votes" as the trade-review method, a protest from one-third of managers will result in a veto. So, a 12-team league requires four votes for a veto.
