    Do you guys want to shoot for one more season after this or take a break before 12 comes out. Vote yes to continue (which means I will push the pace like a bit) or no to take a break.

    We have roughly 2 months until the new game comes out so we should have time. Just wanted to get a feel for your guys thoughts on the subject.

    1 more season after this I would like to do. But my girlfriend will disagree, so if we take a break she will be much more happy.... And that could be important. I think my vote is for a break.

    I was thinking about this and the reason I say break because my time is limited and trying to get another season after this one would mean people being rushed to play games even faster which wouldn't work for me at all. I was considering asking to be put on autopilot if the league did decide because there is little chance I could play quicker turnaround every weekly advance as I don't think sleeping on the couch is good for my back:p

    I'd play another, but I'd prefer a break.

    I'd like another because I'm not losing anyone of consequence for the first time since this is the senior class that was CPU recruited.

    I say we play. All we have to do is play our games. Recruiting wont be an issue, so you wont have to put in time for that.

    For me recruiting is never an issue or time constraint because I can do that anytime anywhere even while working. The problem is if we do another year we would have to decrease our time in which we have to play from 2-3 days to 1-2 days as there is no way you can play another season and finish before July 11 at our pace. We are 1 week in realtime since we started this season and we are in week 3 which mean at the rate we are going it will take 5-6 weeks to finish the season.

    Even if we finished in 5 weeks from now that put us at June 21(3 weeks to play a whole season) Like recch said we would have to 'pick up the pace' in order to get another season in. Only way I see us getting another season in is by trying to pick up the pace this season also a little to get us to where we aren't really killing our selves trying to make the deadline.

    FYI
    Past few seasons we avg 5 weeks

    I voted to keep playing and would like to regardless...those that want a break can take it. The rest of us can plug along until the new game comes out.

    Why, did you put a curse on the University of Illinois like your ancestors did with the Chicago Cubs? Commish - we really need to take a look at this magic deal. You could be next @recchem2000

    I said relevancy - not supremacy. I'll take my 40 point whopping like a man and move along haha

    With 8 yes votes, we'll play on. Those wanting a break, feel free to call this your last season. You'll still have your spot for '12. Thanks for voting everyone (except one of you...i really need to learn how to use the polls to figure out who has and who hasnt voted)

    Even though I voted no, whether I play next season will depend on how much time is left after we finish this season so stay tuned.

    I'll stick around for another. If I have a conflict, I'll just go on auto. Not for a user game though. Maybe next year we can return to 4 user games so we can keep the pace up. 5 or 6 is slowing us down.

    I didn't think about auto just some of the non user games if need be. I think that will work for me too. Thanks man!!
