    Here's GM Radford Pear trying to dig out of the hole created by months of burnout and inactivity.

    Distillers Fan Fiction: CULT HERO GEORGE WILMER VAUGHN and the case of the BURNT COOKIES OF DISCONTENT

    George finally got the call to the WBL! He was so excited! But when he was on the bus to the airport something unexpected happened. He was traded in a completely legal trade to @Schauwn. Vaughn was informed he was traded and his emotions got the best of him:

    The bus turned around. GM Rad Pear didn't want to start Vaughn's clock if he was now @Schauwn's player.

    But then the league cried about the completely legal tried in a variety of ways! The trade was denounced and called illegal and in violation of no less than three rules. What's worse, it was apparently a fleece! Emotions got the best of the WBL owners:

    When a ruling was finally given by OU, it was too late. The trade had fallen through. Hours had been wasted, and for nothing.

    George was angry. Angry he had been traded and angry that people felt he wasn't worth some 16 year old Russian that probably won't pan out with such low contact rating. He would make sure they would rue the day!

    The next day, Vaughn was re-promoted by Dublin. He anxiously awaited the bus to the airport. But it never came! His emotions got the best of him:

    Commish had forgotten the exports! Six days later the bus finally showed up. With his lucky bat, Vaughn boarded the bus with a one way ticket to cult hero destiny.

    lol, I can't believe you guys backed out of that trade. I think the cookies of discontent were baking because it took 12 hours, not because of the trade itself. I didn't think it was a fleece blanket either, Vaughn seems like a nice player and a bird in hand is worth two in the bush. Either way, it was hilarious art imitating life.

    DO WBL PLAYERS HAVE RIGHTS?

    I don't see my name mentioned. What key role did I play? @OU11 has said we can't trade comp picks multiple times, but I think he has just stopped caring.

    One of the picks was a comp pick? It's illegal then. I'm not going to parse through every trade especially when figuring out if they are comps or not is part of it. Rad knows he can't trade comp picks so I just assumed he wouldn't have.

    Please debate rules and fleeces elsewhere. If you are compelled to post please do so in the form of fan fiction or haiku

    October again.
    One year older, no wiser.
    Same old stupid hopes.

    I hope my life ends
    between games six and seven,
    gloves closed, bats ready,

    Someone burning leaves
    in some small town like childhood,
    Series on inside.

    1-1 watch, guess we can add Norman. The more he turns in to Don Drain the higher he gets on my board. Would be funny to pair the two top position player selections from last year's draft, Norman and Alfie.
