Inter-Nation Team Tournament
« on: November 01, 2004, 07:11:24 PM »
The latest news is that Australian player Anakin has been disqualified from the tournament for persistent bad language and various other actions designed to disrupt matches and gain an unfair advantage. This occurred in three separate matches and the third case came after being warned by the TD. This disqualification has been upheld by the appeals committee. All his matches now count as losses for Australia.
It is much regretted that this also penalises his team mates, but this has been a notably friendly and exciting tournament so far and it should not be spoiled by this sort of thing.
