I was literally online and just convinced my guy to stay when you advanced it and it didn't register. He was a RS Soph and far and away my best play and a 99 speed. Iy would have been nice to give us a little time or look and make sure the play wasn't out best guy...


Yeah, considering I lost a 91 rated HB, a backup QB, and an 81 OVR RS Fr WR it would have been nice to at least have had the evening to do it. Like, even a warning would have been appreciated. That kind of sucked.


I don't think you have much to worry about when it comes to losing players.


While the backup QB was never going to play for me, I now have to deal with an 85-86 rated RB instead of one rated 95. That's a big difference, and will impact my run game. And I RSed that particular WR so that he could start for 3-4 years. Both players were significant, and I don't know what the problem would have been to tell us, "hey, guys, I advanced to the offseason. you have until 12AM EST to convince your players to stay."

I specifically didn't recruit any WR this year because I had that guy to be around for awhile.


Everyone had an issue with it taking to long last year, and now everyone has an issue with me going to fast this year - it's a lose/lose for me. I don't believe you should have ever been given the chance to convince your players to stay, because they always do.


1. When it comes to competitive balance and fairness to every member of the dynasty, I think every effort should be made to give every member every opportunity to make their team as good as it can be. Taking an extra 6 hours is hardly a sacrifice if it means that several users can make their team as good as it can be.

2. Why should I (and as a result, newer teams like Ole Miss) be punished for my success at recruiting? Just because I have a strong program doesn't mean that it suddenly becomes OK for me to lose elite prospects. As I said earlier, I built my team in a certain way and I deserve every chance to make it as strong as I can. And were I in an opposite position where somebody else had a strong program and I didn't, I'd have exactly the same opinion.

3. Players don't "always" stay. I lost 3 players last year, including a 79 OVR QB that started two games, even after promising them a lot. There's no guarantee that my players would have stayed this time, but I don't think it's fair that I (and the other 2-3 users in the same position as me) don't get the chance to at least try to convince them to stay.

4. Re: you saying it's a "lose/lose" situation to either take too long to get the offseason done or to skip past it and screw over other teams: IMO it's a much bigger "lose" for the OD as a whole if certain players are placed at a competitive disadvantage for expediency's sake. The amount of time it would have taken use 3-4 users to convince our players to have stayed would have taken at most tonight...you could have advanced late tonight or early tomorrow and we would still be right on track. Instead, we have multiple uers who are disgruntled because they weren't given a fair shake. IMO that's a much bigger problem than people getting impatient and wanting to play sooner rather than later.

We are.

Two things for you to know remix. I'm probably going to sleep at like 6 pm EST so I will transfer commish back first. Seems like we will still be on week 1.

Also we need a new thread. At 101 pages.

6/10 are RTA. Was planning on advancing at 6 or just transferring commish back to remix. Remix I have it back to you as I'm going to sleep.

Everyone try to be RTA by 1 am EST if at all possible to get this show on the road.

Also we still need a new thread, but I want remix to make it so he can edit the title and OP as he wants...

Would you all be opposed to setting out like a 2-4hr block maybe tomorrow to advance through the whole off season? I know we are in different time zones but maybe like starting from 10pm to 1am (EST). Something where we are all on the forum at the same time and we check in to recruit and advance.

It may not work but just wanted to ask.

I'd be fine with it any other day but Im taking winter school right now and my Accounting Final is on Wednesday.

With that said, if everyone else can I can try and recruit/study at the same time. So yeah, i guess im in favor of it Laughing

I'd be okay with this - going to advance and work on a new thread right now.
