If they want special circumstances to allow for sympathy then it should be in the rules........ I know it sounds harsh but why have rules if you're going to break them when you feel like it? It seems minor, but what if, down the road, a team in a pennant race like the Yankees are, has some sort of roadblock where making it to the game isn't an option. Who knows, maybe a religious thing for a few key players. Not enough guys show up and they want the same deal as the D'Rays got. It's a bad example, but once you break the rules for somebody, other people want the same special treatment.
