Why do some of my rosters contain “nameless players”?

Some Strat-O-Matic rosters will contain “nameless players.” We are prohibited from using the names of these players due to licensing restrictions.  By default we give the player the name of his position.  For instance, the starting LLB on Washington for the 2003 season is one of these players.  His name is listed as “Left Linebacker.”  He is the only player for the 2003 season with this problem.  If you wish, you can use the player notebook to correct “nameless players” and assign them their real name.
