I'm discovering that alot of the problems with the SIM are our fault, and that thourgh good league design we can make the SIM work correctly. When the design is right the SIM is actually a remarkable achivement. When we build teams using the top 5-7% of the NBA we leave the SIM engine very little to decide game outcomes on, so it ends up looking random. That's why I try to use +70% of the available player pool. Nothing like a single instance draft and banning 40 years worth of players to fix it. Well, have a look if you get the time. Again welcome back.

That's why I joined this league, we're going to use the whole damn player pool. Should be great...brutal, but great!

dh, it say's abbabba, are we doubling the penalty? Owner's that know much more than I, have told me it should be abbababa... I watched the DDL draft very carefully, I think the abbaba balanced the draft very well. I think the abbabb is way too severe of a penalty, 4 to 2 picks is severe in the first six rounds. The abbabab is a matter if order whereas abbabba is a matter of order and number of picks over the most critical part of the draft.

The draft has started on the Theme League forums. Get on over there and, spoiler alert, Lebron is no longer available...
