    Hey Guys!

    Well the admin team has been hard at work with this idea. We have noticed that the game is boiling down to less strategy and more relying on certain plays that work. We feel like the "pushing the envelope" mentality has gotten a bit out of hand.

    Here is our solution.

    We are going to be putting a hold on users utilizing custom playbooks. From Week 8 and on you must use a stock playbook in the game. LET ME REITERATE.

    YOU MUST USE A STOCK PLAYBOOK THAT IS IN THE GAME.

    Now here is the kicker. A playbook cannot be used if it is in use by another team.
    So, we know that some will want to use the same playbook. So to combat this we are going to create a spreadsheet of every NFL teams offensive and defensive coordinators. This means that each playbook can be used twice at any time.
    ALSO, you are not allowed to change the playbook until the offseason. If a team with a lower record than you wants that playbook, they will receive the rights to that book. (This second part is tentative right now). You are allowed to keep your playbook for as long as you want.

    For example:
    Dallas has Jason Garrett as an offensive book and defensive book. Now, IRL they have Scott Linehan and Rod Marinelli as coordinators. This means the Garrett book for offense/defense can be used on two different teams

    We will be setting up a random draft order to allow the "drafting" of playbooks. If you want to stick with your teams original playbook, then you will just say "pass" before the draft begins. You may stick with the original book on either side of the ball, or draft for both. Once the draft begins you cannot revert your decision to be a part of the draft, and your playbooks become "available"

    Remember there is a possibility of 78 offensive playbooks and 74 defensive playbooks.
