It feels like they shouldn't be there. Especially because of decay. At the start is was just "haha decay eliminated his old team from the playoffs". Then paris. Then Florida. And I think that's when people started to think "wait, this is kinda weirdchamp". It's best described as weirdchamp since had Washington not gone well, we wouldn't have complained. But the meta switched, they used an exception to pick up the hardest carry in the league, and corona virus gave them the chance to enter. No one really cared about those rules until Washington popped off and invalidated the whole regular season. I don't think people are that mad at Washington, it just became "this ain't right, can someone please just put them in their place". Imo.
