I am a stickler for the rules. If you dont follow the rules and dont meet the requirements you simply should not get to play, period.
America is a victim of its own morals. Our country has all kinds of problems from financial to criminal, political, etc... because we dont hold people accountable for their actions. There is always a "but" and always a reason to break/change/bend the rules for a "circumstance".
