For example, the second player was defaulted for 1.e4 e6 2.d4 Ke7 at the Lloyds Bank Masters.
Actually, it was 1.e4,d6; 2.d4,Kd7; 3.Nc3 1-0 (SR forfeit), but that doesn't affect the substantive point.
The Laws of Chess, now at any rate, stipulate that "The players shall take no action that will bring the game of chess into disrepute."
Who is bringing the game into disrepute; the players who agreed the zero move draw, or the Black player who behaved as above?
Regarding your original question, I agree with Kevin Thurlow, up thread. From what you say the league in question has accepted the result as a draw. That being so, the game should be graded in my view.
