The reason why i think the spirit is with Oar's explaination of it is because:
# If we have a stringent limit of 5 players? It was probably setup that way for a reason.
# If a player can carry as many as will be the case into wk6, it really (honestly) feels like the whole "raison d'etre" for the hard cap of 5 disappears too
I understand its not Cy's fault (and DEFINITELY not intentional) - but then it's noone elses either ... mine, dingo's, checo's, GDMK's, BB's, Norm's or any other owner's fault how injuries go either.
I follow Cy's logic about "Where in the rules does it say otherwise
" (ref:IR) but the same logic can go both ways and there IS something on the rules about IR which could easily clear this up.
HoP bylaws wrote:
A player qualifies for the IR by either being on the NFL’s official IR, listed as OUT on the official injury report released each Friday
# So according to the rules (and nowhere is this rule made an exception of elsewhere in the bylaws) if hes not on a injury report on Friday hes not IR eligible and is not on IR.
# If there is no injury report this friday then a player cannot possibly be on IR.
Also, if we being precise, literal and technically accurate as far as possible? Because the bylaws reference the NFL injury reports rather than any FF site designation (like MFL) then NO player can possibly be on IR (or PUP) until the final 53 man cuts are made in the league.
Including your 5 players, my 5 players & Oar's 5 players (Only Dingo beats us with 6
I will just add that Cy is the last
owner i think that would intentionally try to circumvent any laws or rules but i would EQUALLY like to point out that Oar is the last
guy id accuse of being biased in this either. In fact, if anyone were to suggest otherwise id go as far as to say they would be doing them both
a disservice and wholly inaccurate ... and id be forced to sick my dog on you:
