    We have a ton of rules to hammer out in the interim. Please use this thread to discuss your rule proposals, or thoughts.

    Here are just a few of the topics for discussion

    • DH on or off? Both leagues, one league?
    • Stats Only (no potentials) or Potentials Only. Regardless, stars will NOT be displayed.
    • Salary Cap on or off
    • Coaches on or off?
    • Scouts on or off?
    • Draft Pick Trading on or off?
    • Number of draft rounds?

    DH - On
    Potentials Only
    Cap On just because player demands seem to get ridiculous in the game - but only if it makes a difference in salary demands otherwise cap off.
    Coaches off
    Scouts off
    Maybe a limit on draft pick trading.
    Depends on the amount of minor league teams.

    DH: doesn't matter to me.
    Potentials on for sure, ain't nobody got time for the draft otherwise.
    Everything else off.
    Draft 25 rounds? I think that would keep a steady flow of talent.

    I really like the idea of DH on in both leagues.

    sonn do we know if salary demands would in fact be better with a salary cap?

    Not sure. I haven't tested it out or anything.

    I'll check the OOTP forums.

    I want to do 2 leagues- 8 teams in each with 2 4 team divisions. Only division winners make it, so that would be 4 playoff teams.

    Oh yeah, sim length...

    I think Mon-Wed-Fri sims of 15 days each sim is ideal. Just not sure about the playoffs and offseason.

    DH on.
    I guess potential because of the draft, but stats only would be cool.
    Salary cap on
    Coaches on
    Scouts on
    Draft pick trading on
    I don't care on draft rounds

    I'll expand more on it when I get home from work. But it would require feeder leagues for HS and college to be on to work. So that may make the file huge.

    One thing to consider with a smaller draft, is that the talent 1) wont be as deep, which means stats will be even more important 2) you will see older guys in the minors. Which sort of makes sense. Think of this as a world league of players not under contract by MLB or other professional leagues.

    I've got a solution for the draft...

    What about potential turned on for the draft only. The rest of the year it's stats only
