OttoGraphs Episode 16: Vetogate 2016

In this episode of OttoGraphs, Tom, Joe, and Trey discuss a hotly debated topic across Ottoneu leagues this summer (and seemingly every summer): veto votes. We break the issue down into three main areas: how to judge a deal you may feel is unfair; what to do if you truly think a deal deserves to be vetoed; and what steps leagues can take to improve communication and help avoid veto trouble before it begins.
