I am not exactly sure whats happened here. When you make a 2-1 trade you are supposed to lose a bench spot transferring it to the other player right?
If the rules are set to be "if you make a non-equal numbers trade you are supposed to lose the bench spot"
and he made a 5-2
then a 1-3
and he is back to full bench spots? If this is the case you need to set it back to 9, it seems to me to be a bug in the way the site software handleded it, not a loophole in the rules, just because he exploited a bug in the past doesn't mean its allowable now. How many bench spots did the other people end up with, did the extra 1 spot appear out of nowhere, or did someone else lose a spot? If it appeared out of nowhere, two teams could just swap back and forth between eachother to create infinite bench spots.
