    I will post the waiver thread shortly.

    Also, take a look at the VFL - Leadership thread. We have a new leadership group which will discuss all things league related as a group.

    Lastly, as some of you know, we had some draft issues this year. After lengthy discussions with other league members, the leadership committee and other league commissioners the following action have been taken:

    AoHigh5 has been removed from the league. Not only did he have gameplay issues when he joined and an "accidental" quit but he also had an unusually good draft stocked with players from the "draft guides". He was not forthcoming nor particularly pleasant to deal with so we decided to remove him.

    mikeb539 was not aware of the community atmosphere of TSO and that we are not a win at all costs league. He assumed that we would all be scouring the internet for information on the draft class we had and did so himself as to not be at a disadvantage. However, that goes against the basic principles of our "sim" community and was in direct opposition to my directive the night before the draft. He already knew what he knew at that point and admitted to what he did so therefore we would like to give him a second chance. However, he will incur the following sanctions:
    • He will release one player who he drafted in the first two rounds of the draft.
    • He will be suspended for the first three games of the regular season (put on auto pilot and not allowed to play or practice)
    • His other two 1st and 2nd round draftees will be suspended for the first three games of the regular season(completely removed from the depth chart)
    Hopefully this was just a one off scenario and we have no further draft issues going forward.

    Now, back to football!

    Just wanted to briefly respond to this...

    I apologize to the commissioner and all league owners for this and humbly accept the punishment for 'Draft-Gate'. I have been in other leagues where knowledge of the drafts, player potentials and who the good prospects are were known by most if not all. I assumed that was the case with this league, and being this was my first draft, I wanted to do all I could to pick the best players. This meant doing research outside of the in-game scouting reports, which I openly admitted to. I have been told that this practice is not done in this league and it is unacceptable to have any prior knowledge of a draft class. I'm sorry if my drafting rubbed anyone the wrong way.

    I'm looking forward to starting the season, playing some fun, competitive games with you all and getting the Steelers back an track.

    So is there no way to change your playbook before a practice? Would like to use my new playbook in practice

    No, that's a big flaw in the game. If you want to use a different playbook in games you have to choose it before the game. However, you cannot use it in practice mode. Really sucks.

    Just an FYI, mikeb539 decided to cut DT Omari Forrest as his one player per his sanctions. Forrest will not be available for a user to sign this season. Should the CPU not sign him or he otherwise becomes a free agent, he will then be free game for any team next season.
