Yahoo takes too long to process trades. Football trades should be able to happen for that week.
Make the trade review window SHORTER. Yahoo says it's 2 days. Sometimes it takes 3 or more though.

This is a problem! Here's a potential solution - The purpose of the waiting period after a trade is made is, depending on the league settings, to allow the commissioner and/or all managers a chance to look at it and veto it if they want. If a league’s trades are judged by league vote, its managers should also have the ability to proactively vote to “ALLOW” a trade which will push the trade through when a certain number of 👍🏼‘s are cast. This would give leagues the option of allowing trades to be made and processed up to right before the start of any games, while ensuring managers had an opportunity to look at the trade and weigh in. Trades would remain pending until enough managers vote to allow or veto or the pre-set processing period lapses, whichever comes first.

I submitted a trade just after the conclusion of the Monday night game. It was approved. The system says it will process Friday more than 48 hours after it was approved! Worse, involves a player playing Thursday night.
"2 days" should mean 48 hours, no more.
