Something must be done about the owners who intentionally lose to accumulate draft picks and IFAs. I'm not talking about teams rebuilding and winning 65 games, or guys who just vanish and abandon a team, I'm talking about the teams clearly and actively tanking and putting up sub-60 wins seasons in multiple years.
In "real" baseball this sort of tactic would be met with diminished attendance, and thus diminsihed revenue. Heads would roll. There is no con side to the ledger for owners intentionally trying to lose. What's worse is that I'm sick and tired of them pretending that isn't what they're doing.
As an owner who prefers vet, salary heavy teams, I risk certain things in building my teams that way. I understand those risks and accept them. There are no equivalent risks for tanking owners trying to lose. After all, it is much easier to lose 110 games than it is to win even 81. It is too easy to lose on purpose and gather only rewards.
Please put in to the engine some sort of repercussions for owners with horrible seasons...just as in real life they should have to face the music and take not just the rewards, but also the risks.
To me, this is the *biggest* issue with the game engine...and I have plenty of issues with the game engine.
