Today, the captain of their team complains to my captain that we destroyed their season and they are just trying to compete with us because we are good and that we have players who should be rated higher than 4.5. Meanwhile, everyone on our team is computer rated except for one player who is a 3rd doubles player fill-in. Our players are good, but legal and he complains even though they blatantly cheated. His comments to my captain border on abuse and intimidation. Sour grapes?
Just curious, but are your players legal simply because they are computer rated, or did they not answer the self rate questions honestly themselves when they self rated, but simply slid under the radar?
