The Monopoly comparison is perfect, as it's a very widely played game. Sure, people adapt the rules sometimes, and as you said, you know people who won't play it, but that goes for anything in life. 100% of the people will never be happy with anything. There will always be people who don't like something.
I've said it many times and you've chosen to ignore it each time so far, but here's the thing.
There are simulation leagues out there for people who want the game to mimic real life as closely as possible.
There is fantasy baseball out there for those people who want to play for fun, and with the twists and quirks of fantasy baseball.
Why should fantasy baseball vanish and have everything turn into simulation leagues, when that's not what some people want, and not the sole reason why people play fantasy baseball?
My video game example isn't as good as the Monopoly one, but why do people still hook up their old 8 bit Nintendo systems to play games when they own an X-Box 360 and/or PS2? Sure, the graphics and gameplay on the newer systems is more "realistic", but some people do things simply because they are "fun" with twists and quirks the new games don't have.
Anyone who seriously wants to play a game as in depth and realistic as possible will play sim leagues. Others choose fantasy baseball. There's plenty of room in the world for both.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
