A situation occurred in our local 4.5 men's 18+ league recently. I'm not sure how I feel about it. Curious how others felt. I am not in the league this year, but was last year so I still follow because I know a lot of the players. The team in question won the local league last year and advanced to the finals of sectionals where they just barely lost. The captain is a "nationals or bust" type of captain. The season ran January through this past weekend, with playoffs next weekend. Because of a snowstorm earlier in the season, this team had 2 matches in the last weekend of the season. Our league rules require playing 2 matches to play in playoffs. They had already pretty much clinched the playoffs going into this last weekend since they were undefeated. The captain recruited 2 new players from out of town to come in this weekend and play in the last 2 matches. 1 player is from about 5 hours away, the other is from about 2.5 hours away. These guys aren't super elite 4.5s, but they are probably the 3rd and 4th best guys on the team now, so they will definitely strengthen this teams #2 and #3 positions. I assume these 2 guys will come back next weekend for the playoffs. I can't decide how I feel about this. On one hand I'm pretty certain there aren't any rules against it. On the other hand it feels a bit lame to me that the team that is already the best in the league brings in 2 new out of towners to make them an even bigger favorite to win the playoffs. Their biggest rival plays out of a club that does not allow any nonmembers to play on the team. what do you think?
