    I am a bit confused about the bonus players. Do we have any bonus players this year? Are we going strictly 1-7-70?

    I think we're strictly 1-7-70? I'm not real clear either...

    I believe that the new rule is no bonus guys but if you can, you can sign two former bonus guys. So you may be able to be 1-9-70.

    What if the bonus guys are 5*'s?

    I'm not sure, I know Archie got 2 bonus 4*'s so I think that's all that applies. Hopefully he can clear up the confusion.

    You can grab any two from the bonus list, including 5-stars.

    This is correct. I was going to do away with the list altogether (my PM box is full of "this isn't fair" kind of stuff) but I had already signed two of them, so instead of capping the list at seven and giving myself an advantage, I'm letting guys sign up to where I have already, which means each user can sign two of the previous bonus list recruits.

    If I hadn't signed any of these guys, I would have capped it at a straight 1-7-70.

    I'm working on a system for next season, but I'd plan on a straight 1-7-70 until the guys are close to equal in prestige level. Until then, it's clear that the guys want the big schools to sign less. It might take at least two to three more years until we get back to competition, and then guys will be shouting at me to lower restrictions so they can sign more. Kinda how it works. I apologize to all the coaches who won't hit their recruiting contract goals, but every time I sign a couple guys I'm getting the "what about me" stuff in my inbox. It's just no fun, and it leaves me no time to monitor the rampant cheesing going on out there. Wish I woulda known ahead of time. I would have picked a lower tier school and worked up.

    If we are trying to simulate real life usn't real life that the 6 star teams get the best players and the 1, 2 and 3 star teams get the left overs? I am new but didn't everyone have the opportunity to pick a five or six star team?

    I think we're going to be having this discussion in another thread here shortly. I've been having it in my PM box for days now.
