It is sad when there isn't even interest from twenty-four people. It makes me lean further towards backing out of this sim. I've enjoyed it and don't want to see it end horribly and hey, maybe some of us shouldn't care as much in the grand scheme of things. I'll keep this open, I'll establish rules and if people join then that would be great, if not then it is more telling of the times. The biggest joke though is how a concern is commitment issues because of the length of a progressive, yet every league stalls horribly and that leads to even longer wait times. If we all wanted to be on here and have something run smoothly, it is our own deal at the end of the day. As much as the developers of the game have neglected to make this enticing to a new audience, the old audience in all of us are like bitter old people, what happened to just having fun with things and when did it all become about winning or not playing at all, that isn't to say that I enjoy spending money and losing, but if I cared about losing I for one wouldn't have stayed around. I don't need the ego boost, I just like the sport and the sim.
I don't think there's enough owners to get anything like this off the ground.
Also, this discussion just grew very painful. I'm now removing myself from it.
I enjoy the mental exercise of the draft. If my team sucks oh well. That's why I enjoy the progs
and having a player for their career and trying to build over the long haul. Anyway it's cheaper
and healthier than smoking. My kids think I'm a nerd for playing. haha.
They didn't grow up waiting until after the 11 o'clock news to watch the NBA playoffs on CBS.
Yes I grew up in the sticks and still am. Seems the net makes the world a little smaller.
Thanks for the input everyone and I don't think this is painful or dead. not yet!
