There's one person that told on you...
If you know that you didn't follow the rules, you know that this whole forum is dedicated to the series, and you know that many of the people that you play against are here, why post it?
In the end, it really doesn't matter. An innocent question was asked by another player, it could have been left as rhetorical...by answering it the way you did, it drew attention to your roster. There really isn't any blame to be placed elsewhere. You even admit knowing the rule. With the scores you guys had, all you had to do was show up to the 4th event and this wouldn't be an issue. You are a great team, I look forward to seeing you guys in 5 man in the upcoming season.
Part of being a solid team, and part of a captain's job is to make sure everything is done by the book. No excuses. If you go to the captain's meeting, but don't pass on the info...any penalties are the capt. fault for not sharing w/ the team. If someone decides they want to lead the team, then the responsibility falls on them. If not, then each individual needs to take the time to know and follow the rules.
This sport is full of teams that cheat and wipe and look for ways around the rules...Larry and the PBC family have latched on to the APPA system and with some help from the teams playing, and the training of their refs, and the integrity of those who want to be true athletes and sportsmen/women, this can change.
I don't believe that you guys intentionally did anything to cheat, per se. But drawing attention to any rule that you haven't followed, or any rule that you may have outright broken is just looking for penalties.
Look at how Marion Jones choices has now impacted the lives of every relay team mate she ever ran with...
Keep playing together, you're a strong team. Just think before you post, and make sure the captain can drive the bus.
