I have to agree.. there are many things that need to be discussed in this matter. It should have NEVER happened the way it did. I don't know how Tempe picked there team, right, wrong or otherwise but to allow them to compete after they have already been investigated and then to put them out based on the SAME protest once they have made the finals is questionable at best.
They never should have been there if they did not follow the rules. However, once they were told they were good to go, they should hever have had to be bothered with it.
So many things seem to have broken down here. The Slammaster for Tempe needs to get busy and get some things clarified up so that this can never happen to him/her and the Tempe team (or others) again.
