Would anybody in here be willing to serve as a "squatter" in my league on a (hopefully) temporary basis? We've had a few people decide to drop for various issues (time commitment, connection troubles, general flakiness, etc), and of course, having any CPU teams will totally screw up our free agency plan. You don't have to play any games or do anything. I'll control the "auto-pilot" aspect of the team, and hopefully those spots will be filled soon. Right now, we have the Panthers open...but the Raiders and Lions could also be open this evening, since we're still waiting on people to accept their invites from Friday. I appreciate anybody willing to help out. Thanks.

I'm not going to spend too much more time on this since I've got a lot on my plate today.

sometimes when fero speaks since hes been added to ur commish crew he acts like a dick.....


No offense, sprice, but you act like a dick plenty yourself. Including with that statement right there. I act like a dick sometimes too, plenty of people in this league do. That's not exactly surprising in any setting which is composed of 32 guys, most of whom are extremely competitive. Fero's not any different than he was before he was a commissioner, and trust me when I say that he's not any larger a dick than anyone else in this league.

Anyway, I consider the matter closed. If you guys want to discuss the FA idea, we can certainly do that. I'm guessing the vast majority of this league would rather talk about anything other than whether or not I'm a dictator and fero's just a dick.

sometimes when fero speaks since hes been added to ur commish crew he acts like a dick..... as u said he jumped out as if u needed defended and said no to free agency to all of us and apparently u guys talked bout it and thats good u should.... i think that may have blew the whole free agency out of proportion...

I was going to refrain from posting this, I've been called a Dick Before..no hard feelings. But your next post drew my ire.

First Off, Here's Every Post I've Made since being a so-called Commissioner in this league.

The one time i felt like I was being an ass, I even bothered to apologize AHEAD of time.

Just for Reference.

#1: "You can be sure that the 3 of us (commissioners) will attempt to put in extensive testing if we DO Decide to change sliders, before the season starts. We're not just going to willy nilly pick a number and allow the season to start without knowing what we're walking into. "

#2: "Miami Dolphins / siradam134 / feroci0us1 / Est / Monday-Friday 7pm-12am Weekends: Anytime / Twitter: @feroci0us / gchat: atlatz@gmail.com / Facebook will be provided upon request. "

#3: You know that when the Jets are in town I always "MIC it up" with you big boy.

#4: The Dolphins welcome Roland Deschain as the new coach of the Miami Dolphins! All Hail the tower!


#5: Ma, i just saw rutherford belicheck and loved his picture.

#6: Pm'ed X Cappa X. Awaiting a reply.

#7: The Free Agency rules are fine. I can tell you Right now that we aren't making a change to them. We've started a season. People (Who have joined) have agreed to those rules whether or not they realize it by joining. Sorry to come off as an ass, but there's entirely too much work done to change it now.

#8: I'd like to point out a couple of things.
Number 1. Bv stated that he would consider other options if they're presented to us in a well thought out and organized manner. Walking away tells me that you don't want to put the effort into it, so why should we?
#2 do I need to remind you that uber is still a commissioner here? The three of us talk throughout the day bouncing ideas and thoughts off each other. When Bv or uber or I speak we speak with the backing of the other two, I can assure you. Regarding the cheap allegations that Bv somehow "fixed" the league in his favor, all I can point you to is his super bowl trophies. There's a big goose egg there.


Now, For the part that really pisses me off.

I'm going to borrow the Merriam Webster Dictionary's definition of Ignorant to make my case here. See Below.

ig·no·rant/ˈignərənt/
Adjective:
Lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated.


I honestly can't remember a single time in my life where I've ever been called ignorant. Ever. That's seriously insulting, man. Would you walk up to a guy you play pickup ball with and call him ignorant? I've known you for what, 3 years now? Have I ever once slung personal insults directly at you meant to harm?


The SINGLE FACT that I hold in my possession a Masters in Biomedical Sciences should put that "Ignorant" comment to rest.



Can we Please Get back to Football? We're all here to have Fun. There's no need for name calling, shit slinging, or dick-measuring. At the end of the day, It's still just Pixels on a Screen.


Let's Keep it classy, Guys.

I'll have to check to see if there's even a way to change the league-wide setting, but I don't think there is. I don't remember being asked on start-up.

Last year we were given the option to choose, and we left it on Gameflow because some people did actually use it.

We'll consider all information relevant to the players and teams in the deal. I know that sounds vague, but what I mean is that there are a lot more factors involved this year. Not only the differences in OVR between schemes, but also contract length, total salary, and cap hit. If a guy is a better fit for this new team we will definitely consider that as well, so all that information will inform the evaluation.

Bottom line, trades will be much less about just making sure the OVR numbers roughly match up than they were last year. That doesn't mean it won't be a factor, just that it will be one of many rather than most of the story.

Hope that answers your question.

Right. There will definitely be a feeling out period with the first few trades while we figure out what's important to evaluate.

The difference in OVR has nothing to do with what coach you chose. It's all about your "schemes". If your HB scheme is "power backs", then Marshawn Lynch is gonna be like a 96 OVR and Chris Johnson would be something along the lines of a 60 OVR. There is a specific "scheme" tied to EVERY position. As a member of the highly esteemed "Trade Committee"...I'm not gonna pay any attention to OVR just as I never have. I'm gonna delve into their individual attributes which will be the same regardless of what scheme you choose.
