    This schedule is a pretty aggressive schedule, but we would not be Hard Knocks if we did not do it this way.

    Not to complain about it now, but I felt like I never got a real answer besides it would only be a few more days with the simming. After I finish my game today 1-1 I won't have a chance to play again until at-least 1-19. 18 days seems like a absurdly long time to not be playing in a offseason.

    It's really 12 days with the SuperBowl on the 7th. Just longer for owners who missed the playoffs like the both of us :(

    The best bet is to set up Scrims/Tournament if you want

    It is what it is I guess, would have voted differently if layout was shown prior but I guess it doesn't matter now. I only play the league games because I like my custom roster

    I just curious what you expected. Even if we didn't do this format you wouldn't be playing for 10 to 14 days if you didn't make the playoffs because of the 4 advances in playoffs, 7 offseason stages, the draft, free agency and then preseason.

    To me it's incredible that we can get through an entire extra season and draft in a weeks time.

    The only answer I got was that a offseason could be crammed into 3 days, that wasnt bob that answered me though. The guys that pushed for the sim said it would be more games played which didn't make sense at the time and really doesnt make sense now. Sorry guess I'll drop it not trying to make a big deal out of it, just bummed because this lg is only thing I play and after every month or so of play time my ps4 will be a brick for 2-3 weeks depending on if I make playoffs

    Didn't know whatto excpect when ii voiced concern over long offseqson and asked how long it would be 10 times and nevver got a answer lol.

    So would you rather sim from draft to draft? That would cut out a week.

    This will probably work best to keep guys "interested", Bobby. Not to mention, it will instill a sense of urgency. If anybody is out of town and needs to put in a bid on a free agent(s), they could always do so with the assistance of a trusted friend using their EA login. All of the big name free agents always hold out to sign until the final stage anyway. So if guys can make at least one stage they should be good. Scouting XP accumulates over each phase, so no issue there.

    On a side note... Still (impatiently) waiting. (n)

    I obviously hate the new plan but that is just because I'll miss both drafts this way. Good with whatever the majority wants to roll with.
