"Illegal" is an imprecise term. I'm sure what BigH0rt means is it would be, in his leagues, an "invalid" lineup and wouldn't accumulate points.
I said it in an earlier post, but I'll say it again. The term is just 'illegal roster' -- though the concrete definition may not mirror that of what is generally thought of as 'illegal'. For example, I play in a league on FanStar, and if I were to submit a roster for the week (weekly lineups) with nobody in the C spot, it would auto-send me an e-mail, saying that I submitted an illegal roster, and to re-submit with a legal roster. If I didn't, as Matthias said, I would not accumulate points. Similar rules/guidelines apply to even the Yahoo! leagues I am in.
