Personally I don't see a problem with the EE. 3 of those EE was because he took on SIM's. If he had signed those 3 players then he would of lost only 6. But he gamed the system by taking on sims instead of signing 3 players and this time he lost. It's part of the game, when rolling the dice you don't always win.
How did I "game the system"? My recruiting strategy didnt work as other teams won battles or took recruits I had targeted.
What I said was not meant to be a personal attack against you. I have no problem with someone gaming a system. In my opinion gaming the system is part of the game and if its not intended then it should be fixed.
It does not take that much to find a backup plan. I have had players considering me for less than $400 , that's not very much considering you probably have 50k-100k in money each season.
Many owners would rather have the 15k scholarship money next season rather than sign a player who will never reach the quality of player they desire and then be stuck with that player for 4 seasons. If WIS treated Walk Ons the same as players you actually recruited, which is what WIS does in GD, I bet many owners would have backup plans rather than take the reputation hit for cutting walk ons that are considered their own recruits.
WIS gives us plenty of money for backup plans, I see no excuse for taking walk ons and I have no problem with the negatives that come from taking walk ons. I can make a choice in recruiting, I can go all out on a recruit and suffer the consequences if I lose, or I can not go all out and save a little cash for remaining recruits to ensure I don't take walk ons.
