Yea I didn't know what to do with a pick on the 20, so I ran it and he scored. I felt like a dick for trying to run out the clock lol


Understandable, but yeah...running the ball is all you can do, especially when your opponent is turning the ball over. Nobody should ever get upset about someone running the ball. And if they do, they would be the ones in the wrong. That's all anyone needs to worry about.

As for the roster issue, yeah, I figured the teams that were close was due to trades. It's really the teams at 46-48 players that alarms me the most, as that looks a bit more intentional. In case anyone is wondering, I don't expect the Panthers to fix their roster immediately. If staticz can just do his best to get the roster under control by the start of season 3, that's good enough for me.

I didn't know we had to have 53 I cut players that really just sat on the bench so thats why I didn't have 53 people.

No, I never intended it to sound like he just kept trying to score. Like I said, I should've conceded the game earlier, but I didn't. One of those late scores came from a pick 6, and my horrid run defense accounted for the others. But it wasn't like he kept on passing to put up more points.

When in doubt, run the ball. If you can't kneel to end the game, run the ball. If they give you a 4th down in field goal range, kick the field goal. It's crazy to keep explaining this, but the idea is to play completely minimalist, low risk football. Just take your downs, move the clock along, and let the game end.

I didn't know we had to have 53 I cut players that really just sat on the bench so thats why I didn't have 53 people.


Well, it wasn't officially stated, but once discussed, it was decided that it's really just something that makes sense. Otherwise, it basically allows teams to circumvent the salary cap by only paying for the minimum number of players.

Can I get some opinions on this situation? I ended up punting, but I debated it for a while.

4th and 4 at my opponent's 47. I think it was 21-14 in the late 2nd quarter or early 3rd. I hadn't forced him to punt on any of his drives yet. He ultimately went up 28-14 and added more after that.

Hey Bucs owner! I can't accept your trade because your roster would exceed the maximum players. The Decker trade.

If I think I can beat my opponent once on a fourth down and I am on his territory and I think it will be a gamebreaker I'll go for it once. I won't go for fourth twice in a game, but if they haven't been stopping a money play of some sort I will give it a shot.

I can understand the temptation when you're losing that big, you're just looking for a highlight to feel good about it.

I probably would have punted but I can definitely see going it for there, opponent 47 yard line is always one of those no man land areas to me.

Just ran through all of the Panthers contracts. Most of them are reasonable but the bonuses are out of this world. Not sure how I'm going to get under the cap and sign six guys but I'll give it a whirl.

Had to feed my daughter and get her to bed, but I'm about to advance us now. Before I do, say hello to the new strike policy. If you think it's harsh, it's supposed to be. No excuses anymore.

New Strike Policy (in effect as of now)

Anyone who does something that is against league policy as stated in the OP, or does something that is deemed excessively dickish will receive a strike. Punishment will begin after the second strike and will double with each offence. Punishment will be as follows:

2 strikes = 1 game suspension
3 strikes = 2 game suspension
4 strikes = 4 game suspension
5 strikes = 8 game suspension
6 strikes = 1 season suspension (and you probably don't want to come back)

Strikes are permanent and carry over from season to season.

Basically, you get one freebie and after that, you have to pay the piper. The consequences may seem stiff, but I firmly believe that it is not that difficult to play the game with respect and decency. If it's something you have to actively think about, then you might want to re-evaluate some things.

Also, Snakemaster has finally been booted as the Colts owner and neworlbush25 has an invite.

You'll get a crack at them in the offseason.

Somehow I made it work and am fairly certain my team is actually a bit better. Panthers are at 53 and have cap space to spare. :D

You get the first shot. It's been awhile but I think you get 2 weeks to get them signed and then they will hit the open market.

I am pretty sure it was jza that said he most likely wouldn't be able to play.

The thing is, I can't guarantee what time I'll be home. I'm at the mercy of my boss and the train. Some nights its 230, other nights its after 3. Without being able to guarantee a time, I'm not sure how much sense that's gonna make.
