    Default League discussion

    So far we have 10 guys that have expressed interest,if we could get 5-6 more,i will advertise on a few forums to attempt to fill at least 8 teams and start working on some concrete plans,ideally 30 team full league is what the goal is,but if we could get up to 24 i think that could work to start,i am open to any way of play as far as rosters,my thoughts are to go fictional,but it would be nice to have some history built up an having the actual players history would be best i think,how to accomplish that,then go fictional im not sure,i have a few ideas,but i would like to hear what interests everyone else,my suggestions as far as rules is to just use all the in game nba financial,trade,rosters,etc. An keep the sub leagues simple an just have one d-league...thoughts?

    I always like the fictional league; it becomes our own world and not a different version of the same world.

    I would prefer fictional teams/fictional players with an initial draft. Not overly bothered either way about whether the players have histories.

    I like the idea of a fictional league with about ten years of simmed history.

    Ahhh, I love this game. Though I don't think I have ever played the 3rd version. You're going to make me want to buy a PC laptop! That is if I can figure out that Parallel doohicky thingy for a Mac. I was in a multiplayer league with FBB back in 2011 and it was just as enjoyable as Heavy Reign/Brian Nichols' Fast Break College Basketball. I hope you guys can get it off the ground!

    Ok its been two years and im goin to throw feelers out again if anyone is iinterested in adding any sports to the fobl brand,id still like to get a hoop league going,but draft day sports also has the most up to date college football game as well,which interests me...the price of their games seems to be between 25-35 dollars,steam sells em...if you have any interest in hoops,pro or college or college football,please post with your preference,im willing to go as far as buying a few copies of whatever of anything and gifting them to those that have interest and would be willing to assist in some capacit(recruiting,rules,technical issues,etc)...

    I would be interested, probably pro hoops over college hoops over college football. But, I could see myself being good with any of those things. Not able to assist right now, though.

    I think I'd be good with one more league. Pro hoops or college hoops would work, don't think I have enough in me to own a college FB team.
