Well, I stand by that comment, too, that in a season or two, you will be competing for a spot in the Bowl.

I'm more surprised how quickly Holly has built a competitive team. Not too surprised by my loss as I'm playing a 21 year old QB. Lots of growing pains. My team has been winning despite him, but it was just a matter of time before the INTs would sink me.

just had a quick glance at Holly's roster- every player from a different country which means he hit the FA market pretty hard to get competitive quickly. My guess is Holly's strategy is not to get to Elite league ASAP, but rather to set his team up for deep PO runs in SD1 for some seasons to build up a cash reserve before entering Elite. Just my guess....

I am a competetive person and hitting the FA market is the only way to compete immediately.
You cannot plan when to go to elite other than tanking in the playoffs which I will never do. Whoever gets promoted in our Conference will probably have the least talented roster in our Elite Division.

I will just not push the skills to the limit in my first couple of seasons to build a small cash reserve but the start with prepaid mediacenter helps a lot. I was never the one to build a huge pile of cash and than overspend, I prefer to always be sustainable but of course pushing it to the limit.

no need to have a Jack or Jonny bank account

Holly our approaches are quite similar except that I don't mind losing while my team grows in skills. so it took me about 10 (?) seasons to get to Elite. I'm less competitive now than I used to be as I rarely ever scout opponents these days, but I'm at least competitive enough so that I never lose a game on purpose. And of course I didn't mean to insinuate that you would lose games on purpose. But like you said- I waited to push skills to max until I felt my team was "ready" or "justified" to be in Elite. I also waited to revamp my playbooks til my team was ready skill-wise, but this was due to laziness and procrastenation rather than wanting to lose games. what made me finally revamp my playbooks was losing the conference championship to Buzi a couple seasons ago. That loss was freaking ridiculous and got me off my ass.

After more than 10 years and 46 complete seasons, the time has come for me to bow out. My will is no longer there, I've not set game orders for several months. I've just been logging in to check training, but even that has diminished recently.

Thank you all for the competition. It has been fun

I won't be selling up, my team will be on autopilot though - as it has been for a while now.

I did model my first team a long time after Jonny's skill limits, he always had a really competetive team at a unreasonable low costs.

Later I did learn that you can at least go 2 levels higher then Jonny and still be sustainable as he was so absolute conservative with his finances.

Have fun at whatever you do with the extra time!

Also sad like everyone else to see you go, Jonny. Wish you the best, and hope you might find your way back at some point
