Trade veto system needs to be changed.
Either make it less convenient to veto, or make it require half the league to veto instead of 1/4. Or both.
It's too easy to just click to veto without really thinking about it or investigating it. Vetos ruin leagues.

The “League Office”’s decisions to veto trades in Public/Pro Leagues is completely baseless. There is no appeal process or way to get any explanation for why a trade was vetoed, other than that “enough managers in your league must have protested the trade.”
This has been stated before in other forum posts: trades should only be vetoed in the case of collusion or obviously lopsided trades. Managers in Pro Leagues can protest reasonable trades with no evidence of collusion simply because it benefits one or both of the teams.
I recently had a 2 for 1 trade vetoed after “protests”, and could not get any information as far as what grounds the protests were made. If the decision for the League Office to Verona trade is based solely on the number of managers that protest, this is as bad as collusion. Regardless of a team’s standing at the time of the trade, they should be able to move assets how they see fit for their team. Carte Blanche veto power by the League Office with no explanation is a huge issue with Yahoo’s credibility. How can a manager have any confidence in the integrity of the pay league when there is zero accountability or transparency with the League Office?
I will be moving my pay leagues to a different site unless this is addressed. After talking to a “Yahoo Specialist” in a chat and getting no answers as why the veto took place, the only other option was to take it to this seldom used Feedback Forum.
Not proud of you today, Yahoo.

Hello everyone, in the Yahoo Public 55308 in which I have a team, all take the task of vetoing all trade just for pleasure or evil, making a bad gaming experience. My opinion is this because yahoo does not take any action on the matter and it ends with that of the managers of the other teams voting to approve the trades? this has become instead of an advantage at a disadvantage. I hope you take forecasts or I will stop playing this fantasy little by little. Thank you very much
Its actually 1/3 of the league, not 1/4.
