You might be the most closed-minded person I've ever encountered. Congrats on that.
I can think of a number of reasons why someone who never intends to play Zone might want to understand how it works in this game. I won't bother typing them out.
If you have 3 players "vulched" at the last minute, that's 100% on the way you recruited. You'll eventually realize that if you accumulate more than 3 seasons of experience.
edit: I fully expect you to respond with some diatribe about being the victim..or how everyone else refuses to change. Feel free to mix some more references to grad school in there too. We're all very impressed by that.
LOL and you all talk about me getting personal and offtopic...you have no idea how far off track you are as far as me being closed or open minded. Just because someone sees the flaws in a plan or system or simulation doesn't mean they're closed minded. It might mean the opposite, that they're able to see more and understand what the problems are that many others just accept without thinking about whether they're problems or not, and lashing out at those who do have a larger field of vision.
No, having players vulched is not 100% on how I recruited. I'd like to see how you would have kept them with the budget I had and the number of players I was pursuing. I think it's ridiculous that a team that hasn't been on a guy can just jump in at the last second and win his heart. That's just not real. But that's pretty much what happened, and there was really no way of getting around it happening unless I could give myself more money. Say whatever you want, I really don't care because you're talking out your ***, you don't know what happened, you don't know what I know, and you have an obvious bias. So forgive me if i don't give your view on the matter a whole lot of value; as one can easily see, there are a lot of reasons for that.
There's a whole thread dedicated to zone that I feel pretty sure has more useful info than I can get from playing it with a team that's not any good at any defense. You're really grasping at straws here.
