An act performed by fantasy football participants wherein two teams conspire to help one team win by pulling shenanigans such as lopsided trades or dropping a great player when the other party has waiver wire priority. It is truly the lowest form of human behavior.
Team 1: Hey, I'll trade you my backup QB for your best wide receiver and when I win the championship, we'll split the money!

Team 2: Okay, collusion sounds good since I'm 3-7 anyway.

Behavior by any individual or entity which conspires, attempts or ultimately serves to coordinate, reinforce or achieve outcomes desired by a separate individual or entity. The term is most often understood relative to scenarios in which the natural outcome would have been different had the collusion not occurred.

For example: When actors from a foreign, enemy nation generate false and derogatory narratives or stories designed to exploit social divisions, sway elections and undermine the political institutions of a second sovereign nation, and a third party actor then espouses and advances those false narratives or stories, the later party is guilty of acting in collusion with the former in advancement of their goals.

Expanding on the above example, the obligation to avoid engaging in such collusion increases relative to the position of authority held by the offending party - as does the risk of such collusion constituting a criminal act. This is the case in part because of oaths those officials take to uphold the sanctity of public trust, but also because they are often uniquely privy to the very evidence which debunks the narratives, identifies their origin and indicates their nefarious intent. Perpetuating such false and derogatory narratives or stories in disregard of such evidence therefore renders the collusion "willful."
"The arrogant and corrupt politician was so deluded by his misplaced sense of entitlement and intellectual superiority, he failed to recognize that publicly questioning the veracity and impartiality of his own intelligence agencies not only constituted obstruction of justice, but was in itself a clear, demonstrable and self-evident act of collusion."

Even though their core ideologies couldn't have been more different, the two adversaries decided that collusion was their only real chance to prevent the rise of yet another icon spawned from an antiquated political system.

when you meet with Russian officials to plot a mission to interfere with the U.S democratic election and you know that it's wrong so you lie about it ever happening
"The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.
This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump"
This collusion would really help your dad get elected!

"Thanks Rob I appreciate that. I am on the road at the moment but perhaps I just speak to Emin first. Seems we have some time and if it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer. Could we do a call first thing next week when I am back?"
I am so excited for this collusion! My dad will be so pleased!

* meeting occurs *

"Did I meet with people that were Russian? I’m sure, I’m sure I did, but none that were set up. None that I can think of at the moment. And certainly none that I was representing the campaign in any way, shape or form."
I never colluded with Russia!

***This definition deals strictly with race/racism racial identity and social justice** Thinking and acting in ways which directly or indirectly support the system of racism. Both White and People of Color can collude with racism through their attitudes, beliefs and actions. Can be described as selling out, going along to get along, etc.
A Black (or any other race) woman (or man) in the office who sacrifices her racial ethnic identity, who ignores the fact that she was chosen only to make the company look diverse and that because she is there the company feels they don't have to hire any more Blacks or People of Color. This woman has colluded (the act of collusion) and for her silence and obedience, the company may give her a promotion.

The act of trading players (in secret) in a fantasy league, so that you "stack" a certain team, to benefit one of the managers so that this team becomes a dominant force, also know as conniving. By the way I did it, it's illgeal to do.
