    Alright guys, I'll put this up to a vote, chime in if you feel like it. Should we go with owner mode or coach mode.

    In owner mode we'll have the opportunity to do stadium upgrades and build new stadiums, set hot dog prices, etc.

    In coach mode we'll be upgrading coaches to set ourselves apart from other teams. No having to worry about setting prices every few weeks, just about building a roster and playing the game.

    Since I have the Chargers, and Qualcomm was built in the 60's, I'll vote for owner mode hoping I'll get approved for a new one.

    So owner mode for me.

    I went with Coach mode. I think it's best for this format. I will do an owner mode offline I think.

    I chose coach mode just because I haven't had a chance to try owners mode yet. I think we should do coach mode the first season, and hopefully after that, everyone will have had a chance to review owners' mode and then we re-vote.

    I need to look into how this will work in a 32 team league. I just don't like the idea of having a handful of teams in a different mode.

    Yep. While I did like the mode, it was something done offline without time constraints.

    An issue we run into is that the owners cannot purchase upgrades like the coaches can. So for example, there are coach upgrades that increase XP for each position, or packages that aid with contract negotiations. If there is a mix of coach and owners I'd imagine all the created coaches will have an advantage with the upgrades that are available to them.

    Is there any on-the-field advantage that can be had by excelling at owner mode?

    Owner mode is fun, but it can be time consuming along with managing the team and playing games.

    I think what would be a good idea is maybe someone (me) creates an owner only league. Games are simed and each user is just responsible for the GM facet of the game. It would be similar to how PA runs OOTP baseball league. To me that sounds fun... maybe a 48 hour advance where we sim two weeks. At that pace you could get through 10-14 seasons by cycles end.

    Owners can purchase upgrades in the menu off of Staff for their coaches. I didn't care about the pricing so much as the hire/fire of coaches, off coordinators and scouts but whatever really.

    Sounds good I'd be interested, that's how the GMFL was ran in 2012, we simmed two played one etc. We had two users per division on a 48 hr pace. Peicing a great team together is what it's all about IMO ...... If you do do it, lemme get them Raider boys!!
