Play in a league at work. Team A (1-5) offers Odell Beckham Jr, Ju-Ju Smith-Schuster and Rob Gronkowski to Team B (4-3) in exchange for Alshon Jeffery, Josh Gordon and David Njoku. And yes, Team is the one that approached Team B about it.
Team A's justification is that doesn't like Odell Beckham, he's 1-5 which necessitates making some changes and Gronk is injured so he needs a TE.
I'm not going to say the c-word here...but does it make a difference that the owner of Team B is Team A's boss?
I told him that this was akin to saying "You know, I don't make enough money and I don't like $20 bills...so I'm going to take these three $20's and exchange them with a rich guy for three $10's which I like a lot better...that'll solve my financial woes".
