However, there is no rule stating you can't play stronger players behind weaker players.
The rule LITERALLY is that you may not play stronger pairs below weaker pairs. Maybe you should take a look at the rules before you say what the rules are.

"Sandbagging", scheduling stronger pairs below weaker pairs is prohibited.
How would you police that?
That is the real issue. There isn't much of a way to police it except for using the movement rules. Again this is why I wish that ALTA would start to give people an individual rating. In playoffs there are stricter rules about who can play what line but its based only on what line you played in the regular season. (losing badly at line 1 always gives you a higher ranking than winning easily at line 2) I think it would be more effective if you had an individual rating that spanned several seasons.
