what kinda moron would make the forfeit rule anything but a 10-0 win?

(otherwise it can be advantageous to the losing team to take a forfeit loss rather than playing)

we had this discussion 2 seasons ago and u kids keep turning back the clock to dumb town where stupid kids like ranch vote with their emotions rather than common sense. blitz is an asshole but he's usually correct. get ur shit together noobs

straight 10-0 skews stats too much since goal differential is a tie breaker category.

I'd rather see the normal zhpl team play in zhl instead of a forfeit at all and then the zhpl team be able to play in zhpl as well afterwards (assuming no zhl players showed up).

If we didn't have players (players that aren't zhl) restricted from zhpl afterwards, then i would support a 10-0 forfiet rule.

I thought there was a rule that allowed captains/owners opposing teams make exceptions for players that played ZHL to play ZHPL.

@ above: yeh there is, but that isn't a guarantee. Players would also need to be guaranteed that it would not their chances at probe league playoff eligibility as well if that were on the fringe.

@Daggius: We're both assholes who tell it how it is fam.

@the rest of you noobs: I told ranch like 4 times the same lineup he used in ZHL could be used in probe as well. He just said he wanted to save his probe players, so they wouldn't be ineligible for ZHPL playoffs down the line.

Hence why any forfeit should be 10-0.

EDIT: acceptable exception being any team that willingly forfeits the entire remainder of the season. But a 1 week forfeit should be a 10-0 win.
