And, yes, that's a doomsday scenario but I'm playing in a world right now that has some rather obvious tanking going on. There is a race to the bottom.
I'm also leaving a world that accepts the "strategy" and one of the practicioners just lost the WS with 32m payroll after a run of 52, 55, 42, 49, 41 and 60 win seasons. In the last 5 seasons he had 2 #1 picks and 3 #2 picks with 5 IFA over 14m. How hard is it to build a team that way?
Wouldn't it be great if WIS made draft picks, IFA's and FA's look at a teams record and history and have it matter. Love to see all the top IFA's saying "I don't care how much you offer me I want to play for a winner" and have 3 of those #1 picks and most of his suplementals say "I have decided to play Football, or Basketball, or Squash or any damn thing rather than palye for a franchise that doesn't even try to win."
