It surprises me how many people here don't read (or possibly just don't care) about the rules in this OD. I know this REALLY bugs edge7771 . I can tell from some stats that it's highly likely that other(s?) are using some conservative settings too. Conservative settings are probably even cheesier than aggressive ones. With conservative carry/catch I could recruit burners at WR/HB that can't carry or catch and just use the cheesy conservative setting and turn them into Jerry Rice/<some HB that never fumbled>. I could recruit speedy D guys that can't tackle and just set the tackle setting to conservative as well. If you're gonna recruit guys that can't do something (hold on to the ball, catch, tackle) then you should have to pay for it and not get bailed out with cheesy game plan settings. The Experience just pointing out that game planning (both aggressive and conservative) isn't allowed. (although Masler does need to add that in addition to the "tempo" setting, "option defense" is also allowed on either aggressive or conservative).
