My Mistake

    Hey all, just wanted to get a thread going about what recently happened with me and my team to clear the air before it gets muddy, if it hasn't already.

    During week 14 I played vs CPU Cards and the score ended up being 62-0, which is running up the score. I surely did not intend to do this, and I did not do anything, that I feel was unsim. With that being said, there are many things that I could have done differently to keep the scoring down, especially since I scored 17 in the 4th quarter which was not necessary. Instead of running back an INT for a TD, I should have stepped out of bounds, I should have run the clock down more frequently and tried to make an effort to punt more frequently.

    Due to my mistake in judgement, BobJr has imposed a 1 week suspension on me for running up the score which I am totally ok with and understand. Bob and I have talked quite a bit since then and there are absolutely no hard feelings on my end. I am taking this as a learning experience for the future when playing the CPU or users even and will not let it happen again.

    I am sorry to any HK members who feel I cheated you in anyway and I am always happy to talk about anything openly. I ensure you this sort of thing will not happen again on my end and I understand that this sort of play is not acceptable in our league, which in my opinion is the best league out there.

    I look forward to being back out there week 16!

    Dude, you are way above-board in my book. On the Reb-scale, that is not egregious at all. The fact that you self-reported, got out in front of it and found mutually-agreed upon punishment speaks volumes.

    Also, in re-reading my post, I want to clarify what I meant by what I said about feeling I did not do anything unsim. I am strictly talking about play calling and execution of those plays, as running up the score that way IS unsim.

    I do appreciate the support, this league really is the best.

    Hey, I think bob's punishment might be a bit too harsh. Why not just be forced to trade your starting MLB to a division rival?


    I'm just throwing out ideas.

    Just let me know, I want to help you feel better about this whole ordeal.

    I would have reserved the ban to a playoff game against the Saints if it were me. Just sayin.

    To quote one of my college coaches when we rolled our division rival in a playoff game. "Its not our fault that they suck!!" Jk. no judgement here man, sometimes you just kick someones ass.

    You're another stand up guy. In HK, we don't run the score up whether it be CPU or user.

    I know the CPU isn't super challenging and is probably because BobJr wants there to be a penalty for not being able to play your games. However, I beat biggcoug65 49ers like 41-0 with my paltry Seahawks team. I think he beat my Seahawk team 50 something to 0 when we couldn't get our game in and I've seen a couple of other shutouts. We are certainly all responsible for our actions but maybe making the CPU a little tougher or slightly decreasing a few user attributes (break tackles?) could offset this a little? Just throwing out ideas. I admire Coug's manliness though :)

    Yea I hear ya. If we do that we offset our user games which I have really enjoyed how they are playing
