Certain transactions made solely to impede other owners are not allowed. In particular, cycling through players in free agency to put them on waivers and make them unavailable to other teams in your league is strictly prohibited and is grounds for expulsion from the game. Please see the waivers and free agency section of the rules for more information.
Yahoo has a similar sportsmanship clause.
Read this closely though. First word, "certain." Not all, but "certain" transactions.
Next, "cycling... to put them on waivers."
That's not what he's doing. He's keeping them on his roster. The way I read this rule, he's not breaking it. As I said in my previous post, the other guy is the one that's churning. This guy is just countering the churn.
