Classic buy low sell high for the guy receiving Horford, Conley. Veto worthy or not?

I generally don't like to veto a trade unless it is obvious collusion or if it is an abhorrent trade. While we all know Mayo is going to cool off and that Horford and Conley will be more valuable than Kirilenko and Mayo, if the other owner is clueless enough to take the trade let him suffer for it. Unless the offending party has a history of taking advantage of league members or this trade will "break" the competitive fairness of the league, I say let it pass, but that's just my approach. Real GM's make bad deals all the time, I don't see why fantasy GM's should be bailed out by their league. Of course you could always be strict about fair trade value and punish those trying to be slick by vetoing everything they do. Watching scumbags tumble because they are handcuffed is always fun, but this kind of approach imo makes a mockery of leagues and if owners are more concerned with trying to stop other teams from improving out of spite than improving their own team, I would not want to play with them.

collusion? doesnt look like it. does it shift the balance in your league? don't think the names are big enough. i'd let it go through.
