    Some people confuse the "creating favorable match-ups" with taking advantage of the AI. Putting fast guys in the slot can be either depending on how it is used. As stated in the rules, you can re-order your depth chart, but if your slot WR's (3 and 4) lead your team in catches, yards and TDs or we see that you are abusing something during CPU games, expect to have a conversation about gameplay.


    The correct protocol would be to attempt to work it out with the individual you are playing. If you cannot resolve the situation, then you should contact your commissioner.

    Drifter... Don't want to butt in, but I feel this response needs addressed as well. Blaise, TSO is not about winning and being noticed if you do well. We are a community of like minded gamers who put sporstmanship, comraderie and "sim" game play ahead of "winning".

    Please keep this in mind if Drifterbub approves your application. Thank you.
