Putting Those Legal Skills To Fantasy Use: Law Student Writes Brief About Trent Richardson Trade
Sports

Straight up trade rape, bro.

A fantasy football league at Ole Miss experienced some drama this past week when the value of a trade was turned upside down by the Trent Richardson exchange. Not only are Browns fans in disbelief ,but poor “Eric’s Amazing Team” got stiffed when Eric accepted the “Roethlisberger Rapists” offer of Rashard Mendenhall and Ahmad Bradshaw for Matt Ryan. Richardson arriving on the Colts pushes Bradshaw to backup status, meaning the RRs got Ryan for an incredible value.

The league commissioner was feeling forgiving, and negated the trade prompting a ridiculous response from the RRs. The league is composed of Ole Miss law students, and this provided a perfect time to practice the appeals process.
