(1) I was imprecise in my last post. What I think he's trying to say (but wish he'd clarify) is if this rule is a situation where an exception should be made, i.e. if streaming is such a known ill and this fix is a fair way to address it.
(2) Another thing that is missing is whether or not someone drafted based upon the idea. That is the whole basis of the, "no mid-season rule changes" idea is that people draft based upon a certain construct and now you're changing what they drafted.

The change is 100% wrong on multiple fronts and his question isn't as poorly clarified as it is baseless, as well as answering itself in the initial post...

That means that that team spent the last dozen weeks basing his strategy and decisions based on streaming. I (and almost everyone else) would consider it incredibly unfair to change the rules at this late stage.
The point is, a significant percentage of FBL players consider streaming a viable strategy so if you want your league to be stream free you must set the rules up to prohibit it in advance.
Marrakesh Express wrote:are the two managers who said no to changing the rules the ones streaming? I would talk with those streaming and get them to understand that the majority of the league hates them doing so. That said it's hard to get through to people that streaming is annoying. For me, last year I locked a team from making moves but it was a league with my friends, not random people.
