Yea, it does seem like they won't be booting somebody for cheating when stakes are high, but honestly, in their defense (despite me not WANTING to defend them) the legal issues involved in saying basically "Yes, Azubu Frost cheated clearly, but we're not doing anything about it" would get them screwed. Imagine if TSM decided to sue because of that for the full prize money?
Unfortunately, although it seems like Redbeard and the others are good people, trying to make the best of a bad situation, they're trapped between a Malphite and a (well screw the original saying) Rammus. Not much they can do other than a slap on the wrist of Azubu players, and allowing it to go on as is.
That being said, I'm firmly convinced that the mass MASS majority of the League's fans would be MORE than pleased to see Riot simply come out and say "Rules state clearly that you cannot look backwards at the live feed. Frost did so, and as a result, they're disqualified, since the ping indicated not only cheating, but unfair usage of such information to gain an advantage in the tournament.".
I mean, if they DON'T disqualify Frost, then what they're basically saying is "DO NOT CHEAT.... unless you're pretty damned good, because then we'll let you get away with it..." That is not a good precedent to set, whereas a MASSIVE DQ and smackdown would be a darned good way to set the standards in stone. Nothing says obey me like a head on a pike, am I right?
