PJ of the Baltimore Ravens (Elite) is super helpful (and Italian). Any success I've had with gameplans etc is thanks to him. Very nice guy too.

How was your season so far?


I think we can nab a playoff spot this season. We are also 8-0 in our Supercup league, so fingers crossed we stay the course and get into the playoffs there as well.

Our first 5 seasons have developed this way:

- Build up the players that are on the team
- Add players that are similarly built up on skills, and replace weakest players with those
- Focus on bringing in talented youth for the future
- Develop playbooks and depth charts
- Save money

Tool is in a new phase starting late last season, and still spending money like crazy through this season. We know what we want for each position. 50 speed for all receivers and corners, genius linebackers, a little bit of everything in our linemen, etc. I feel like these players are the best undeveloped youth players I can find on the TM. And even now, some that I bought last season aren't as good as I thought at first and may find themselves replaced before they ever get developed. Like Edwin Alferink for example. 49 STR, 50 TW. I thought he would be an awesome DL. But his intelligence is only 33.6, and I believe I can get someone similar, but smarter. And intelligence does matter for defensive linemen. It is a factor.

Also, the 20 year old only has 1.5* experience. I can improve on that with others I see coming through the TM for sure. Just need to weigh all the factors before deciding.

My plan (for now) is to run a test: Take a full squad of these wunderkinds and train them to a specified limit. With the exception of a few specific players (one QB, one RB, one WR, etc), I'm going to max everyone else out at 30k salary.

Then I'm going to closely watch how high I can get our overall rating percentage. A beautiful goal would be to hit 80% while total salary remains under 3 million. This idea was born here. In this conversation.

I feel a little sheepish that I'm basically trying to put together "the best team money can buy." Doesn't seem very creative. But the money spent is just off the top. If I put this team together, and keep wages where I want, it will be 10+ seasons of NOT spending money to form the best team. In other words, yes, I'm spending millions to get these players, but I won't be spending 5 or 6 million a week to sustain the team. I think this would be an important, alternative approach teams could take to avoid bankruptcy, and could stir up the TM a little more for those who put talented youth up for sale.

This is just how I'm playing the game at the moment, and I'm having a lot of fun. Galaxy is very forgiving to teams who want to overhaul their rosters all season long. Tool still has 330+million, so we aren't risking anything by splurging on the market for awhile. Will be interesting for me to see what our rating hits a couple seasons from now, and where our bank sits by the time these kids retire.

I think you are on the right direction ..

GG Dumbarajko!

We got stomped pretty good, but we were hanging in for awhile. What was really nuts was the absolute SACK FEST on both sides. Hilarious. I would say how many there were, but the game is not over yet. I just can't watch anymore. The 4th quarter is getting too ugly for me. Good luck in the playoffs!
