Full Tilt Cuts Out Sub-Affiliate Payment

Would like to know if anyone thinks this is a valid reason to stop paying us sub-affiliate payments and if not what recourse I have.

I sold someone on becoming a Full Tilt affiliate and referred him to be a sub-affiliate. This was a guy who my company did business with elsewhere and I've been friendly with for a while.

He used to work for a company that had a previous account at Full Tilt.

My manager informs me that even though this individual never had a Full Tilt affiliate account, Full Tilt is not going to pay us for him anymore because he works for a company that did.

I was informed the old affiliate account was "shut down." My manager is not shutting down the new account, but has stopped paying me for this referral. I'm not sure the time frame, but if I had to guess I would say this old affiliate stopped working or was shut down by Full Tilt a year or more ago. (I had no clue about the past history of this company with Full Tilt.)

The affiliate agreement says "Any Person classified as an affiliate" cannot be referred. He was never classified as an affiliate until I referred him. There is no breach of the contract.

My point is I sold an individual on becoming a Full Tilt affiliate and I feel I should get credit for what he brings in because he would not otherwise be working for Full Tilt. I talked up the program and got him interested.

Can Full Tilt simply stop paying for referrals and break their own contract?

Have any other affiliates been cut out like this by Full Tilt?

Any feedback appreciated.
Full Tilt Agreement

Full Tilt has informed me that I am not getting credit because the individual I referred has some business relationship with the previous company that was shut down. It was about a year after they were shut down that I sold this individual on signing up there so I don't see how this point is valid.

This is the Full Tilt agreement in regards to sub-affiliates:

.10. Sub-Affiliates. You may refer other persons to us so that they may also apply to join our Affiliate Network. If any such person successfully joins our Affiliate Network we will pay you in respect of the activities of such Sub-Affiliate in accordance with the Payment Plan, provided that you register them through the "Register Sub-Affiliate" function within the Affiliate Area of the Website. You will only receive credit for sub-affiliates which comply with all applicable terms of this Agreement. Any person registered as an Affiliate cannot subsequently be reclassified as a Sub-Affiliate. You shall not:

Register yourself or any person controlled by you as your own Sub-Affiliate.
Use fictitious or alias names for the registration of Sub-Affiliates.
Offer any type of enticement of money or otherwise of monetary value or otherwise to potential Sub-Affiliates unless such enticements are approved in writing by us, including any so-called rake-back schemes where a proportion of the players rake is returned to the player in any form.
Attempt to introduce any addition or variation to our terms in relation to any potential Sub-Affiliate.
Receive Payment on behalf of your Sub-Affiliate(s) and for the avoidance of doubt, the payment and contractual relationship in regard to the Affiliate Network shall remain between the Sub-Affiliate and us.
