    I thought they can't. But just found a guy got DQed as C player.

    Rule changed recently?

    Perhaps they had a mixed exclusive computer rating but then self-rated for adult (same sex) league and were DQed in that?

    More details would be helpful.

    To the best of my knowledge "c" rated players are not subject to dynamic disqualification (or 3 strikes). I would imagine that they could still be disqualified through a grievance or by an official at nationals or something.

    The grievance would ahve to be something extraordinary. Typically, once you have a C rating, you are untouchable.

    Did you look him up in tennis link prior to the DQ? Did you actually see a "C" rating next to his name? If he claims he was a computer rated player, who knows -- perhaps he was being untruthful at worst, or simply uncertain at best.

    This appears to be something other than a 3-strike DQ.

    His rating still appears as 4.0B as of 12/31/2012 so the DQ hasn't changed his rating to 4.5 which is normally what would happen if he was 3-strike DQ'd playing at 4.0. Given that he is still playing 40+ 4.0, this would seem consistent with that.

    Is there a chance the team somehow had an illegal roster and he was selected as the player to be DQ'd?

    It looks like they were part of a team that played at nationals last year, but the 18s team appears to be in compliance with "move up, split up", but the 40s team is not, although he is only DQd from 18s.

    There is another player on that team that has been DQ'd as well. He is a self rated player, but he is still being shown as a 4.0.

    Both basically seem to have been DQ'd at the same time. Odd....

    Looking at both, there is something fishy about that.

    Damn..first time I've heard of that. I'd like to know how that happened. I was always told it could only happen to a S rated after 3 strikes(beating 3 bench mark players)...o well...so much for that myth.

    Strikes can also be generated by playing non-benchmarked players.

    I know the story behind this one... this year's 18+ team had four players that went to 4.0 nationals last year, but they weren't aware that the move up/split up rule applied to them because they weren't part of the same team last year. They were informed by local league officials after the regular season was over that they had to dump one of those four players to be eligible for the championships, so that player is who was chosen. It was handled by DQing him.

    So it's not a dynamic rating DQ at all, just a way to bring the team into compliance with the move up/split up rule.

    The self-rate DQ was a standard dynamic DQ after 3 strikes.
