Power Ranking - Dragons 1 - Season 45 - Week 9

Headlines:

- The Pinellas Pikes hold at #1 and unbeaten.

- Rio Football Team (#2) and Westlake Marines (#3) swap positions despite having bye week both . Changes in points scored, points received and point differential have been the cause. Which indicates to me that it would be better to record points per game instead of total points (noted for next season's Power Ranking).

- Biggest rise : 5 positions for Mülheim Steelers (from #16 to #11).

- Biggest drop : 4 positions for Deventer Devils (from #10 to #14) and Budapest Janitors (from #11 to #15).

Good luck and enjoy.

Boy o'boy, how many people went with this approach....you have to be insanely lucky and have some kind of magical foresight to even have a shot at this. You'll always have painfully lacking positions and you'll also overpay eventually as well. If you want some advice about this, I'd definitely ask flimss and Alexx about it, since they are the ones that are doing this in Dragons the best, with over 30 seasons of experience and barely buying anyone from TM.

The youth guys I find for example are usually mid-to-shit tier ones, for some reason, but I always plan and design my YA 'classes', adjust the senior roster with keeping in mind what I'll have the next season. Draft classes are also getting progressively worse for seasons now, this current season being the absolute worst I've ever seen so far.

It sounds great, having legacy guys that only played for you, for over a decade, over 400 games, etc. but the reality is that you could've likely sell the guy and get similar production in most cases for a fracture of the money you paid for keeping him around.

You are probably right, but I want to see the evolution of the players' performance according to the training I plan to improve different skills. I know it's a long-term goal and I'm not in a hurry to get results. In fact, I think this season it is impossible for me not to be relegated to Dragons 2 and if so, I will get rid of all the players I had in the team when I took it and stay only with the players I have recruited.

We'll see how it works out for me.

I took some time to understand those changes. Definitely it will need some tweaks for next season. And I am still feeling that the SoS should also be a bit more relevant... This weak my opp record moved a 2-5 while Westlake's opp record moved a 4-2 (so his SoS raised while mine decreased) and it did not compensated the other change on points. Sounds weird for me.

I am so proud with my season! I lost by only a 10-point margin against a strong divisional opponent playing MOTY. My low opp % showed on the Power Ranking made me reticent about my real strength but now I am a bit more confident. I hope I can keep the good work and reach the playoffs. Some extra income will help a lot.

It looks like to me that maybe SoS just isn't weighted enough or/and cap limit points vs bot teams.

Seems just a bit wanky up top 6 or so spots.

And as for pete. This injury shit is starting to piss me off. Got WR and QB filling in at FB for cripes sake!
