As long as you are friends with people that run the league pros can apperantly play D2? I don't understand why NPPL even has rules if they don't enforce them...not too good for a league struggling to stay in existings. You cannot get away with this at PSP events!

Rostered on a D2 team, when the rules clearly state no pro player for the last 10 years can play on a D2 team!
