    For your consideration, there has been a suggestion to decrease the number of preseason games we play in season 2. ​

    1) Depth charts. If you don't want starters getting hurt on special teams or reentering the game due to fatigue you have to micromanage your depth charts and that is a PITA.

    2) Enthusiasm of preseason games loses their luster compared to meaningful games.

    We would turn off injuries and sim the rest. Just have to make sure guys trim their rosters to 53 before the sims.

    That still allows a chance to tinker with rosters and schemes prior to kickoff of the season.

    I'd turn off injuries during the preseason, play the first three games and sim the last. I like seeing back-ups play. Maybe have just a 48 hour advance the first three games and a 24 hour window the last game of the preseason to finalize rosters.

    All so some of my backups can get some XP.

    If people are concerned about injuries, just turn it off for preseason so that we can play some games and not worry about screwing up and getting a feel with new players and try some new plays.

    Personally, i dont mind having injuries. im cool like that.

    One here. Yeah guys get XP, but everyone is in the same boat by not playing them. IMO they are meaningless and slow down the season. I feel one game is enough to get a feel for your backups.

    Why does everybody have to be on the same boat when it comes to xp? If i want to focus on getting one of my young receivers or whatever position and build up their xp, its not like it is easy to build up as it takes a lot, i should be able to. In the regular season, they are not going to have that opportunity. If another owner doesn't want to, they shouldn't have to, but sholdn't take it away from those that do.

    I just know that in TMFL, by the time we got to week 3, no one wanted to schedule preseason games due to no interest.

    TMFL is a very fast paced league, this is not, hopefully it stays that way.

    The pace here in TLY will continue as-is, we are simply looking to see what the consensus is from the owners in regards to preseason games.

    If we're moving at a slow pace, then why would we wanna have 4 games that don't matter? We should just do two at max. One preferred

    I would prefer 0 preseason games. I like the idea of them, but players just get hurt and it isnt fun because backups are subbed in at wrong positions. On my depth chart i'll have a set player to be my 3rd string but that gets over written and randoms are subbed in. If i have a separate 3rd string LOLB from a ROLB, i dont expect either of them to be playing DE. The substitutions are flawed to me and the Kicker and Punter bugs piss me off.

    I voted for two pre-season games. It's enough time to get a good feel for rookies, but not too long that it drags.

    All for me, kill injuries and 24 hr advance times. Anyone who doesn't want to play can go on auto so it's to each owners discretion.

    Sweet, so we move to week 1 of the season on Wednesday?

    edit: Well I guess we have until then to collect more votes.
