Precisely the right approach. They don't have to start their best, but they have to at least play the game.

Technically true, though I would probably have put it here, too, to run it by a bunch of experienced commissioners to get a sense of whether it was ethical.


Meh, I wanted more views and votes tbh.

Are you a mod? If so, can you move it back to the other forum?

How do I tell if someone is a mod or not? Sorry, still kinda new to this board.

Absent such a rule, do you think the owners have the right to bench their players if they want?

Like I said, they need to play the game. Benching your starters for scrubs is a punk move, but justifiable. Benching them for no player shouldn't be allowed in any case.
