    Default League setup issues - rookie generation

    So, should we go with the option to use the DDSCB import process to create the rookies? I'm leaning in favor of that, although I don't think using the "linked" file option would be the way to go. I do like the thought of being able to "see" the rookies ahead of time. In fact, I would have favored running a college league except...that game is more expensive, and I assumed there would be even less interest due to Radiis FBCB league.

    The draft lotto certainly cuts down on the temptation to tank for the number one pick based upon what I have seen in my solo careers so far.

    I am pro-lottery, and imported college rookies sounds great to me, but since I don't have the college game and don't really plan on purchasing it, I suppose it comes down to whether someone else plans on getting it...

    I have the college game, and Ramzavail, at least, does as well so that shouldn't be an issue.

    As far as the draft lottery...I don't think there is a way to turn that feature off in game. I just mentioned the lottery so that if someone was opposed to using the rookie import out of concern that people might tank if they saw a Lebron type player in the college ranks, the lottery does a good job of reducing the tank incentive.

    I like the college idea, I think we just need to fiddle with the html output to see if it gives adequate information for those who really want to do their research.
