    So G_T_G and I were screwing around with offline franchise. We were the Raiders, checking out new features and whatnot.

    That is when things got....weird.

    We notice on Skip Bayless's twitter handle that he was talking about how the St. Louis fans are getting screwed again and that it is an outrage. Keep in mind...this is week 3 of the preseason.

    We dig a little deeper into the twitter feed and come to find out that the Owner of the St. Louis Rams struck a deal to move the team to Toronto. Again, keep in mind that this is a CPU controlled franchise.

    We sim another week and the twitter feed is exploding.

    Darren Rovell (@DRovellEA) posts "A majority of fans wanted the owner to choose Mounties as the team name and it looks like they will."

    The...Toronto...Mounties?

    For the Love of everything that is HOLY, Ryty please reconsider the consequences of having teams (including CPU teams we have no control over) moving.

    The NFC WEST's newest team....The Toronto Mounties.

    So, over multiple franchise simulations, I've only seen 4 teams move. Jax, St. Louis, Oakland and San Diego. Now, I know that is probably four too many for some but I'm not sure it warrants turning the mode off. Thoughts?

    The only movement I've seen is Jacksonville to Chicago.

    I am not completely advocating turning the mode off, I am just warning people the CPU could end up doing some random crap. I could see Jaguars going to London, Toronto, Chicago, Mexico City or San Antonio and IDK how "realistic" it would be. I don't mean to try and ruin everyones fun, I am just trying to get the INFO out there before we get surprised that the Toronto Mounties, Chicago Cougars or Mexico City Conquistadors are on our schedule.

    Also, the CPU Chargers could move too and who knows where they would go.

    I know. I agree that I hope it doesn't frequently.

    I think Ryty should move the Browns to Memphis and rename to the Memphis Steamers. Seems perfect IMO
