    Default Speeding things up a bit

    Having ingested the crack cocaine that is fast-sim, and given the pseudo-malaise that is FOBL now, would people be in agreement that speeding things up would at least be a step in the right direction? I'm not talking about a massive change or adding sims (admin burden), but maybe simming 14 days at a time instead of 7? Are there that many owners left who tweak their lineups *that* much? Our injuries are so minimal that a 2 week per sim schedule wouldn't be a big problem.

    I'm a tweaker.

    And after buzzing around in RANZBA and CCB for a bit, coming back to FOBL always feels like a leisurely, pleasant day at the lake.

    My vote would be to keep status quo.

    I like leisure. If I wanted something other than that, I would seek out a faster league. Or mainline whatever YD is on.

    The only reason I feel like we are in a malaise right at this moment is because I've slowed things down because there was a demand to move to OOTP17.

    Generally, I don't care for fast-sim because it just doesn't leave as much of an impact on me. Guys come and go even quicker. I may not get as attached to players as I once did (well, maybe that's not true - I've probably had more long-timers lately than I had back then) but I can't imagine I would if we had twice as many seasons per calendar year. Same goes with championships - if we're handing out one every month, why would I really care that much about one? Or any season in general?

    And I'm a bit burned out on the admin stuff, which is why I've (unfairly) been sitting back and letting C do all the work...

    Part of this is that I suck at delegating authority. For some of this stuff I'd rather do it than get others up-to-speed to (though I still rely on Steve's SOPs).

    I go back and forth on this but I am cool with FOBL being slow food.

    I still like the idea of the 7 days per sim pace that we've been doing to this point. I'm still trying to absorb the league's best players for possible future articles, and the longer they stick around, the easier it is to absorb.

    That is not a conducive comment to the discussion that is occurring here. Can't we all just get along?
