If everyone knows about the rules ahead of time, this isn't angle-shooting, it's strategy. Plain and simple, it's completely within the rules of the league (as they were set up), and it's a valid plan.
Look, man, I'm a lawyer in real life. I don't want to play one in fantasy baseball. Yes, the league should be set up properly from the get-go. Yes, I put a lot of thought into how I set up my league and how I structure the rules. Yes, in my league I've already kobosh'ed streaming with 60 move limits. But... I'm not perfect. You're not perfect. Noone's perfect. Any system of rules is going to have the possibility of unintended consequences. And not for streaming per se but for something else, possibly... if I realized there was a loophole that went against the spirit of the league, made it no fun, and stopped rewarding quality players in favor of a loophole, I would put the kobosh on it then rather than letting the year play out and ruining the purpose of the enterprise.
You guys really need to pick up some Ayn Rand; I think you'd really dig.
