But, what I do care about is me being penalized because you forced your settings on AOL. The fact that you knew this happened last year only to force it on the second year only solidifies my point and your naivity to the situation.
It's bushleague and bullshit to penalize me for something you set up.
Blaming your actions on a website is chickenshit, and I have a HUGE problem with how you and boozie decided to handle this..
If I wanted a bullshit league, I'd have joined a yahoo league. If this is not satisfied correctly, I will be submitting an empty lineup, and forfeiting my team. I have no time for ignorance.
While I totally disagree with the way that Swiper went about this, I do agree with his points. With 2 new owners in the league, I should've reminded everyone that AOL (like yahoo last year) will allow an illegal lineup to appear legal. That was my mistake and for that I do apologize. The same thing happened in week 1 last year to Sniper when I wrongly assumed that everyone knew our starting requirements. Unfortunately, with our unique starting requirements there isn't a host site out there that will allow an illegal lineup to ALWAYS show up as illegal. It's up to each owner to make sure that their lineup is legal. Just because AOL shows that you have a legal lineup...it still might be illegal.
I'm going to reverse the penalty for Swiper. NOT because of his threats. Because after thinking about it a while, I came to the conclusion that this situation is different from last year when Sniper was penalized. Last year Sniper was in the league from the beginning and knew that yahoo might allow an illegal lineup. Swiper wasn't aware of this and that's why I'm reversing the penalty.
I'm going to PM everyone right now and remind each owner of our starting requirements and also to let them know that AOL will allow an illegal lineup to appear legal.
Sorry for all the confusion and please feel free to post here or PM me if you have any objections to me reversing this penalty.
