extremely suspicious and i think the most prudent decision is to ban all of them. actually, would be safer to ban all TML fans.

We're talking about a fantasy draft on a web forum. The only people who care about the integrity and reputation of the draft are the same people who are participating.

If you want to be outraged save it for someone who deserves it like the guys on Wall Street who just finished taking the world to the cleaners.

As has been pointed out, his teams haven't really ever been all that successful and it's safe to say he wasn't rigging votes. Even if that wasn't the case, I would never believe that VanI would do anything like that. Obviously, he was just trying to make the draft run smoothly when he created Zamboni's team. It was a stop-gap measure, that got out of hand when his passion for the draft took over. If anything, he's guilty of being overly-enthusiastic about the ATD.

Was it poor judgement? Sure. Do the optics look ugly? Yes. Was it malicious? Definitely not.

VanI is a pretty good guy, and his contributions to the ATD are great. I think banning him would be more dramatic than productive.

not such a big deal, imo. seems to me VI was more concerned with having more teams than with cheating. i think VI has been a valuable contributor in ATD/MLD/etc.

but i could be an alternate account of VI.
