    We've reached the climax in the CFM life cycle and as expected with the tentative shift in weather and overall shift in priorities, member participation is on a decline. So we shall decide what avenue we want to purse for those members who wish to continue playing while mitigating the amount of CPU games.

    SO...

    Option 1 : Press in the current file and some team owners will be forced to realign to ensure at least 3 members occupy each division.

    Option 2 : Do a Reboot, start with the newest rosters provided by EA. All roster transactions will be current as of NFL teams today. Also draft classes will be edited to reflect the inbound rookies.

    With either option we will explore and test run ideas proposed to see how they work... This will range from rule modifications, to game mode (All Pro, AM etc...)

    Team building and drafting is key for me so starting over loses all appeal for the league this cycle but I'd be down to start back up next release if we go that route... starting over after 4 seasons of building is rough... but it looks like everyone else is cool with that so I'll just be out until next release after this post season.

    I'm down for keeping on. Although, for me it's a bit easier to say that. I just took over my Bears and still building them up, and more importantly, the users in my division seem here to stay.

    My second suggestion is to keep going in this file and leave the CPU teams as such. I have no issue with going that route even if 3 users per division can't be attained.

    Option 3 for me is to do whatever the masses decide.

    I'very finally built my team to my liking so rebooting when we still won't have a full league seems like a real drag to me and I'm not 100% sure I would want to start over. I am not sure what a reboot would accomplish for those who don't want to play anymore anyway I guess.

    Can somebody who wants to reboot sell me on why? I'm all for what's best for the league but I'm definitely not feeling a reboot 4 seasonso in.

    I think reboot may give guys a chance for a full chance to build teams that they like more than the teams they had to take over in the situation they did. I personally like both since I'll have cap room and high pick.

    All tied up at 9-9. Should have another 7-8 people voting

    See a couple of on the fence guys. I'm good either way as well, so I'll say this if it remains this close we will just continue on with Option 1 as there won't be enough of a disparity to warrant the change and lose an additional 2-3 members with a reboot.

    What about maybe simming some seasons or maybe lifting some trade restrictions ? Maybe find something to try to energize the league ?

    Just spit balling here.

    Trade restrictions aren't imo going to re-energize guys. Some of the guys we lost or expected to lose have been active trade guys.

    I think a reboot will allow us to consolidate the remaining core to minimize CPU games which I know most guys hate. Maybe incorporating some simmed seasons into the reboot would be option. We could sim preseason like we currently do.

    I'm dwn for the realignment. Starting over means all that work,prepping,drafting. Etc. would've been all for nothing

    What about the majority of committed owners who built team from start and already have ownership of team?

    Option 1 and take volunteers first to see who would like to mix it up makes most sense. I get excited to start from scratch with new release but not 5 seasons in. Building a team is all the fun.

    Besides, it would make all the time put into drafts the last 4 seasons a waste... already waste enough time on this game as it is. I like the guys I've drafted and acquired in FA. Not interested in starting over. But if that's the way the league wants to go that's cool too but I'll have to reapply and pick back up in m18.

    Not a perfect solution for everyone that's why we're hashing it out.

    We'll lock it up tonight, but it looks as option 1 will be the choice.

    Just to clarify, OPTION 1 , staying in the current file with realignments is the choice.
