I haven't posted in the forums in years, but this is an intriguing thread that makes me think the following:
1) Coaches should spend more time managing their teams and less time filing tickets whining about the actions of other coaches. Seble really spends that much time dealing with tickets on this subject? Really? Maybe there are more shenanigans than I realize, but I find it hard to believe there are enough valid shenanigans to warrant that much tattling.
2) Coaches with multiple IDs who are acting like douchebags need to stop. If I had to guess, there is a very small number of coaches with multiple IDs who are cheating and engaging in douchebaggery. So an outright ban will only anger and frustrate the majority of coaches who are not gaming the system. Coaches who are caught cheating should be banned immediately from HD and not allowed to return.
3) Maybe this can of worms has been discussed in the forums lately (so my apologies if I'm repeating something), but my suggestion would be to try to take some actions to address what in my mind has become an overly competitive recruiting situation in HD. By now, almost everyone has figured out that the only important attribute to focus on when recruiting in HD is ATH (I know that is a generalization, but it's true, sorry). Everyone's obsessive drive to snap up the most athletic players or those with high potential in ATH opr SPD is creating an atmosphere where some people feel the need to cheat in order compete. In my opinion, we either need more high-quality athletic players available in recruiting or the affect of the ATH attribute needs to be toned down so that it is not the all-encompassing factor that it currently is.
