By technicality on stats, we made it to the gold medal game against the aforementioned team. At this point not only were the three spares on the bench for us, we also had an almost full roster, missing only two regulars. When we were losing 3-2, these three went to work. James had a hat trick, Josh had an assist on each goal, and Brent...Well he didn't do much actually.
Point is, we were accused of "cheating" by the other team, due to the high skill level of the three, in addition to getting our captain back etc.
In a situation like this, do you consider it cheating? We thought we would have a shortened bench, and the three all had some connection to the team, through family, friends etc. Thoughts?
Bringing in ringers to win? Yeah, that's cheating.
