As we're getting into the very heart of the playoff race now, I think we should revisit the issue of if one party can't play, it's an automatic sim. I just think that the notion of having someone lose a potentially crucial, even season defining, game because of a sim because one party (for perfectly legitimate reasons) can't make it. To me that'd be infuriating. And once we get into the playoffs themselves? I might not be able to make a wildcard game on Monday because of work. Should that be simmed? I can't imagine being my opponent for that and then having that sim boot me from the playoffs. Am I alone in thinking this? If so, feel free to smack me down. If not... I think we need to discuss it more.
