I think colonels point, although he may not be stating it in the best way, is not that people should be allowed to cheat, only that the rule and enforcement don't make sense. BillyG has 3 teams in Tark, and the problem we are now arguing over is that SIUE and South carolina are about 770 miles apart. Yes that is a violation, but is it going to make him cheat or give him a bigger advantage than SIUE and USC, which are more than 1000 miles apart and therefore legal??
Billy is being forced out of South Carolina, but lets say Miami opens up next season and he applies for that job and gets it. Now he still has 3 teams in Tark, but Miami and SIUE are more than 1000 miles, so no rules violation and therfore no issue?? But have we really accomplished anything? He's just as likely to cheat (although no one is really accusing him of that) and he gains just as much of an advantage, but he is within the rules. That just goes to show the rule is stupid.
And for the record, in a perfect world, I would be in favor of 1 team per person per world. But I also would rather see humans on my schedule than SIMS, so I have no desire to make anyone drop any team they have.
