Post by: GM Garcia on March 16, 2015, 01:27:54 PM
"Well, boss, what I do know, is that I sing from a different hymn sheet when it comes to the rest of the General Managers in this league. I had some experience in managing both Daytona and Mexico City during my Baseball days, and I'll be honest... I don't know shit about Baseball, and I still managed to build a team in Daytona that had real promise, the potential to be a winner ya could say. Mexico City though, I did what I could, I'd built the team around a couple of stars in the making and unfortunately, we all know what happened with the league.

Football though? I don't know if you know me by name, but I've got some history in the sport... and needless to say, I'm a little more grounded these days..."

MOTIONS TOWARD WHEELCHAIR

"I will build you a winning team, a team rough, raucous, physical team that will help the Music City Kings conquer this league. I've got a habit of finding my way to the top on the totem pole. A lot of GM's they just see players as numbers, names amongst statistics, and whilst I ain't ignorant to those details, I'm more about the mental aspect of the game. With the right mentality, an average player can become a threat. I want killers out on that field. We'll plunder and pillage the HIFL and get you a crown. And that's a promise that comes with the Santelmo Stamp of Approval."

I like what you've had to say there GM Garcia, and I have heard of you, hopefully we're throwing fewer Hail Marys than you did during your wrestling days, if you know what I'm sayin...

...Here's the deal, you gotta be able to shake, rattle, and roll to in the championship, and I believe you've got the drive and attitude to do that.   You've got me all shook up, and I can't help fallin' in love with your approach.  Let's talk about guarantees, what do you believe is a reasonable 3 year plan for the King's Kings?...
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Garcia on March 16, 2015, 04:12:14 PM
"Reasonable? Contention. Three years and we can be right in the mix. That in my eyes is a reasonable goal. But if ya don't mind me speaking frankly, I ain't too much about the reasonable! We got disadvantages, being an expansion and all, but give me a year to lay the foundation and after that, I'd be looking to make some noise! I don't throw too many Hail Mary's these days, which I'm sure you're glad to hear, but I still believe in that ethos, in that mentality.

I'd love to do it right from the off, but even a man as confident as myself understands that there needs to be some time allowed for adjustments. Year one, we get the foundation, I drill into these guys what we're all about here in Nashville. Year two, we weed out the fellas that ain't got it in them, we improve where needed and we starting throwing Hail Mary's!

Metaphorically."

GM Garcia, I know you are currently on vacation, but if you are interested in getting an early start on interviewing potential coaching candidates, I have attached a list of who we expect to be available once the off-season begins. 

Feel free to place some calls and feel some coaches out.  We will not be allowed to extend offers until the offseason, but it may be good to establish some rapport with them before the APL, or other GM's have a chance to get to know them.  Please mind that the names highlighted in grey are currently under contract and will not be accepting phone calls.   

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

  Hello GM Garcia, I'm going to be blunt here, I'm not a big chit-chatter, but here is my life in a nutshell. I made FSU a defensive powerhouse. Before that I spent 10 years in Denver and 5 years in Washington as head coach in both locations.  I've had great running backs in my past, but defense is what I hang my hat on.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Garcia on April 17, 2015, 03:23:14 AM
As long I hear what I need to hear, I don't need you too say much coach. I will tell you my vision with this teams future, and excuse my lack of modern day jargon, I haven't been involved in the sport for a long time. Essentially, I want a team that will throttle the opponent on offense and defense, constant pressure, blitzing, a grinding, nasty attitude where our foot remains firmly on the throat of our opponents at all times. I have a vision, but I ain't a coach so I am looking to hire someone who can get us somewhere close. What formation have you had success with? And where does the real talent need to lie for your defense to be at its peak?

  I have always deployed a 4-3 base, I want strong defensive linemen so my talented linebackers do not have to blitz often.  If want to blitzkrieg the defense, you will need to find another man for the job.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Garcia on April 17, 2015, 08:43:52 PM
I will be frank with ya coach, that is what I envisioned for the future BUT 8 the right man can steer us in a similar direction I am not against the idea. Do you look to operate a run first offense?

Your numerical speech is confusing the shit out of me kid, but my offense is simple, run the ball with a slew of nameless faces and watch the wins roll in I have a unique scheme for the run that works miracles with young running backs.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Garcia on April 19, 2015, 02:21:12 PM
Unique scheme? I'll be straight with ya, since it seems to be something you ain't too shy about yaself. That is ringing some alarm bells for me. Good luck with the rest of your interviews.

Can we arrange a meeting with Ted Collier please.

Well, my brother and I both left the NFL about a year apart, and while he's still doing his "thing" at Michigan, I decided after a little time here at the University of Maryland it was time to stop thumping my little brother and give him a shot to win the Big 10, so I have decided a return to the pro game was in order.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Garcia on April 20, 2015, 03:54:34 AM
I can attest to that, though it wasn't a little brother, but some of our fellow GM;s... they know who they are. What was your role at Maryland? What have you taking from your pro career into coaching?

I have been the head coach here at Maryland since my arrival.  I enjoy the college game due to the opportunity to get out and evaluate talent and recruit them to the team.  That is why I look forward to being a coordinator in the HIFL, it gives me the chance to get out and scout the next generation of players, while still working on the defenses that I love. 

As for what I have taken from my pro career into coaching, I believe that hard work and effort trumps raw talent.  Just because you are fast and agile doesn't mean you will succeed, but if you work your hardest, put the team before yourself, and fight for every play, you will be successful on the field and in life.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Garcia on April 22, 2015, 01:07:56 PM
Is that a path you're looking to pursue continuously? Working as a coordinator? Tell me about the defensive game you like to run...

  I plan to be a head coach in the near future but I believe you have to pay your dues at every stop. Start as a coordinator and prove the system and coaching is to the caliber of the league.

As for my defense I run a unique hybrid scheme of 4-3 and 3-4, a scheme I hope to teach to a young understudy in the future so that the sche can continue to run once I do become a head coach.


Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Garcia on April 23, 2015, 03:48:55 PM
Can you give me a little more information on this hybrid defense? I'm a specialist guy, ya know, might need a few things spelling out for me but I know what I am looking for. Where would your key players be at, to make your scheme work at its peak.

4-3 defense in short yardage situations, 3-4 in medium yardage situations, blitzing more out of the 3-4 than the 4-3, but also being able to run the nickle or dime in long yardage situations. It allows me to use some players that some people say are "tweeners" who don't have a true position and get the most out of them by using them in situations that play off of their strengths and mask their weaknesses.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Garcia on May 02, 2015, 03:43:51 AM
This sounds all good to me. I know there is a lot of interest out there in a defensive coordinator such as yourself, is there anything particular you are looking for in an organisation to work in? I'm talking location, structure, no glass ceiling, etc.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Garcia on May 04, 2015, 01:14:11 PM
That's good to hear, my friend. So I'm going to straight, there are a few more people to talk to, but I would love to have that kind of defensive present here at the Kings. I ain't much for kissing ass and doing the hard sell, but I got this knack for bringing success with where ever I go, I pay fair, and I'm more than fine with anyone I employ being straight with me. You will be getting an offer from the Kings, if ya haven't already been tempted elsewhere, I think you would do more than well here. I have a vision, but I will mould that to the coaching staff I have and what they are looking for, where their strengths are, you won't be shoehorned into playing a system you don't 100% believe in.

Before I let you go back to the rest of your business, is there anything you want to know about the Kings, Me, Princess?

I look for hard working players who are strong. Strength is key for my running backs and offensive line, run blocking is my biggest attribute when it comes to the o-line, but I don't want kids who flat out can't pass block.

...QB just needs to be smart.

Mr. King, my name is Justin and this is my official application to be the new GM of the Kings. Born and raised in South Carolina I am aware of the southern culture which puts a big emphasis on music and family. I have a history of being a successful general manager,  albeit in basketball.  I feel that I can bring that same winning pedigree to the Kings and build this franchise into a perennial powerhouse.

GM Justin, a fresh face to the league is what this league needs I believe, so I'll tell you what... answer a few questions for me and we'll see if you're a good fit for this organization.


First question, what type of coach would you look for as our head coach?

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on May 25, 2015, 05:25:46 PM
I am looking for a coach that is committed to three things:

1) Discipline
2) A strong running game
3) Defense

I believe those to be the three fundamentals to winning.

Well it sounds like you've got a good head on your shoulders, so let me ask you this next question.

Veterans or youth?  Which do you value more in building this expansion team, and why?

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on May 25, 2015, 05:38:16 PM
In all honesty it depends on the position. For example, we would need a veteran quarterback to lead the team but could go with youth at the running back position. Same on defense,  I would go with a veteran middle linebacker and youth at the defensive tackle position.

Hello Mr. King, I had heard word that this team here in Nashville was lonesome tonight without a General Manager to guide its hand and thus, I have come here to offer my humble application into the fold. My name's Chris Strike, I've made my name mostly as a General Manager in basketball and as a candidate, I would be looking at it as a way to make its arrival in the HIFL with an emphasis on youth, a few solid veterans to serve as captains and teach the younger ones the ways of the football world and an experienced staff to bring the best out of everybody - with an extra emphasis on a passing attack.

I do apologize for barging in on the interview, but I wanted to make my interest known. I can wait until you're done with GM Justin before coming back in.

whoa whoa fellas, let's take a minute to settle down here. 

Obviously one of you will be spending the off-season at the heart break hotel without a job here in the HIFL, but I believe you both have bright futures here.

...GM Strike, I admire your work in  Champaign, but your vision seems to be a little off from what I am seeking.  I appreciate you coming here to the end of Lonely street to apply, but I believe we are going to give GM Justin the blue sued shoes, naming him the General Manager for season 6...

Hi there, I'm Princess Twang and I'm your connection to the rest of this here team, I am the secretary here in Music City and I love my job, lord knows. Bless your heart, you're late to the party but luckily for us Coaches around these parts are hungry to get paid so we can probably poach a coordinator or two if we don't find anyone on the market who we like.

Now just so you know dear, we have 135MM in salary for next season and 40MM in PR  These are the caps for next season set by the league and we can not violate them.  We have until we lock in for the regular season to comply with the cap numbers, but once the regular season starts any violation of these caps will result in immediate penalties, so please do be careful.

The league has generously blessed us with scouting to help us prepare for the expansion draft, free agency, and the amateur draft.
We have:
- 16 Free Veteran Film Study Reports from League Scouts

Bill, as you know the Kings are an expansion team and I am looking for a head coach to lead our team. I notice you have 20 years of coaching experience. Can you please tell me where that 20 years comes from and break it down as to how much was as a coordinator and a head coach.

Well I started my career as a DE at NC State, went to the pros in the seventies and then retired.  I became the DC in Pittsburgh in 80. Coached their until 87, went back to NC State to become head coach until 90.  Got the Wolfpack to the Orange Bowl and won it, and then got brought back to Pittsburgh to be their head coach from 91-2010. I retired for a few years and came back last year.  I didn't get an offer to head coach so I took a job with Alabama as a DC just to keep sharp.  People were fools to over look me last year, and even more foolish to forget about me this year.

I like a traditional pro style offense, I want a solid slot receiver for when we do run from the shotgun or spread, but I'm primarily an old-school pro set guy.

On defense I have always succeeded most with a 3-4 attacking defense, one that gets to the QB with great rushing OLBs and big space eating defensive linemen.

As long as you don't hire some wack job who's wanting to run the spread all day or some pansy DC who thinks they are who we thought they were, I can work with anyone.  I'd prefer a veteran OC, one who can function without me looking over his shoulder. DC can be young or old, as long as they understand the 3-4 and aren't too conservative.

I was  record setting QB in Miami but I never won a title... it's too bad, some called me the greatest QB of all time.

I've had a few OC jobs here and there, but my best work was helping Giovanni Hill be such a force last year in St. Paul.  I'm a passing guru and I think he made some strides this year towards being a championship winning QB.

Hey man, here is my story... I was a back up RB all my life, played some WR too but wasn't ever given a fair shot.  I went back to Davidson and coached the past few season in the NCAA...

I like a balanced style of play a little run and a little pass.

I believe the back ups deserve a shot, they get no respect man.

Hell son I spent the past 10 years making FSU a defensive powerhouse. Before that I spent 10 years in Denver and 5 years in Washington all as the head coach.  I've had great running backs in my past, but defense is what I hang my hat on, a 4-3 defense with a strong pass rushing front four, so that my linebackers can help the DBs in coverage...

My career was going great, in S1 I played for Tombstone and had 108 tackles 3 forced fumbles a sack and a safety in 16 games as a team captain and starter... but then I got a concussion and didn't play in S2, I retired and became a defensive assistant for Alabama for their Season 3 and Season 4 championship seasons. Last year i was the DC for Missouri and I'm still under contract. I'm still learning, but I am great with training DT's to eat blocks for the linebackers to get into the backfield.

I like to attack on defense, I'm a blitzer at heart.

Well, this last season I didn't have a dominant pass rush, might have been the personnel we had in Missouri, but for as well as my secondary played, I didn't see a threat to the QB on my defensive front seven.  I would say I need to do better at developing an edge rusher.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on May 27, 2015, 08:52:48 AM
Thank you for the honest response Coach.  After speaking with you I am interested in offering you the defensive coordinator position with the Kings.  Now I know we are an expansion team, but the opportunities are abundant.  First and foremost you will get to work under our head coach Bill Crowder who is a 3-4 guru and will be able to help mentor you and help you become an outstanding defensive coordinator.  Secondly, the three of us can work together to bring in guys who you feel will fit in with your system and allow you to mold a dominating pass rush and hard hitting secondary that you currently envision.

Are you interested?

Hey sonny, I'm Leo Sanders. Innovator of Michigan's spread offense.  I've been a college coach for all my days as a head coach, but I spent 6 years with the greatest show on turf as a WR coach. I like to find talented youngsters who are ready to play, I'm not big on project players.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS

If I have a running back who can use his speed to gain the edge, I'll use him as long as he can also contribute to the pass game as a receiver out of the backfield. I'd say I run the ball overall about 35% of the time, but with the right back I'd move it up to 40%.

Good afternoon sir, Cameron Hollingsworth here. I was interested in your offensive coordinator position.

I'm the HIFL's all time leading rusher with 5197 yards and 40 TDs over the league's first four seasons.  I served last year as Las Vegas' offensive coordinator and now I'd like to be the OC under Coach Crowder. I am only in my second year as a coach, but I believe my pro style balanced approach to offense would benefit an expansion team, especially one that has hired a coach like Mr. Crowder who has always been known for his dominant defenses.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on May 27, 2015, 12:10:05 PM
What would be your run/pass ratio as far as play calling?  Do you prefer a feature back or a committee approach?  What is your feeling on running out of the I-Formation?
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS

I'm a 50/50 guy overall.  Obviously on 3rd and long or even second and long I'd pass more than run, but I believe in running the ball.  I am comfortable with either committee or a featured back set up, but in my time as a player I enjoyed being the guy getting the bulk of the carries so I understand and can relate to the running backs in the league.

As for the I-Formation, I love having a lead blocker so the I formation and the pro-set are my favorites, but I do also sprinkle in some shotgun on passing downs, and double TE, but that's more for the goal line..


Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on May 27, 2015, 12:26:00 PM
If it's 3rd and goal on the two-yard line with 0:01 left in the game and you need a touchdown to win, do you run or pass?

Honestly it would depend on my players, but ideally I'd run the ball into the end zone; if I did pass it would be from play action..

neither will decide to sign until after day 2.

Can I speak with Coach Crowder please.

Coach, we are able to add a fourth member to our coaching staff and I'm thinking a strength and conditioning coach would be of good use.  Do you have anybody in mind that you have worked with over the years that would be a good addition?

Are you looking for more strength or more conditioning, because I know a few.

I'd prefer 50/50 if possible, but if I had to choose I would say more strength focused.

I am a retired Punter, but before you start chuckling, let me tell you my background.

I am a former National Champion soccer player for Montana State, I am also a full time personal trainer now and I have helped many players get into shape to go from college to the pros.

I am known to add strength, speed, and conditioning/endurance to players "ratings" depending on their ability and ceiling for learning and improving.  I have a regiment that will not lead to more injuries, and I also am good at preventing "serious" injuries.  I can't promise they won't happen, but I'll do my best to help avoid them.

Mike,  I appreciate your efforts on behalf of your client. But ive done my research and based off of last year's salary at the running back position the average salary was nowhere near $10mm.  With that said I believe in his talents and want him apartn of this team so what about 3 years, $7mm, $1mm PR

If you want to talk averages, the average salary of a starter right now is 8MM at running back, and if you wanted an average back you should have waited until later in the draft, instead you took Carlson with your first pick. Lets go 3 years 9MM, 1.5MM PR.

Money, my main man.  My research tells me that David has had a nagging toe injury for a little while.  I believe that if David has surgery on the toe that he could possibly return to his top form.  My following offer is contingent upon David agreeing to having surgery on the toe:

2 years, $2mm per season and we will pay for his surgery.

Hmm, I think we have a misunderstanding here.

You drafted David and inherited his contract from Pearl Harbor. He is set to make 6.75MM for the next 3 seasons.

...but we are willing to undergo this surgery during the off-season if you are flipping the bill, it's 500K

I understand Clayton has had some off the field issues in the past.  I've take the steps to speak with his college coach at Kent State and we had a productive conversation.  I would like to give Clayton a second chance with a 2 year deal at $2mm per season with the second year being a team option.

Here's the deal, we are cool with the low salary or the option, but Clayton has a family and he wants to secure their future. Can we do the 2 for 2 guaranteed, if not we'd want to do 2 years at 4MM with the second year a team option.

Stair deep, long, and try not to squint too much.  Add in the side glance when you perfect the deep gaze.   A touch of eyebrow, but not like the Rock, and you got it.

Then you just grab a handful of ass on the way out the door to mark your territory.

GM Justin, another WR of mine, between Slaughter and Pitts you've got yourself a nice corps of receivers for Brewster to throw to. 

We're looking for 3 years 4.5MM and 1MM PR

Post by: GM Justin on June 18, 2015, 08:23:37 AM
Yes, the two make a nice tandem.  I was glad he was still sitting there when my pick came around. 

We agree to that deal.  I think Erik has what it takes to be offensive rookie of the year, especially with Brewster throwing to him.

END OF PRESEASON PRESS CONFERENCE

(http://imageshack.com/a/img904/7917/FINANb.jpg)



1. How did you feel your offseason went?
2. After seeing them in camp and in pre-season, do you think you have any stand out rookies?
3. Did you have any position battles in camp/preseason?  How did they turn out?
4. What was the highlight, and what was the lowlight of your preseason games?
5. What is this teams biggest challenge going into the season?
6. Where do you predict this team finishes at the end of the season?




REMEMBER TO WAIT FOR YOUR COACH TO APPROACH YOU, DUE TO THE MEDIA'S ABILITY TO ASK FOLLOW UP QUESTIONS.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on August 05, 2015, 06:32:57 PM
1. It went great.  We brought in some great talent and have built an overall good team with good depth.

2. Rose, Pitts, and Swafford all played great.  Rose and Pitts are the big names, but Swafford proved that he will provide some valuable depth along the offensive line.

3. We had no real position battles, but we did find out that we have some great depth at a lot of positions which will help us through the length of the season.

4. All of the talk from outside of the organization has been about our secondary.  I don't buy it because have the experience.  I think our biggest challenge is being an expansion team and we have to get everybody adapted to playing with each other.

5.  A playoff berth at a minimum.

We were pretty balanced in our play calling, so for the few passes he had to throw, I thought Brewster looked good out there.  He spread the ball around to 7 different players and he looked comfortable in the system.  Carlson looked really good against Tombstone, but he struggled against Lincoln, which wasn't great to see.  I think we need a few games before we know what we have in him.

Ladies and gentlemen, that's not only a great way to start the season, but a great way to start a new franchise!  We picked up a win in our first official game and boy am I excited!  Our guys played a tough team in St. Paul, but they stuck together and got the job done.  We played well on defense and our offense looked good at times.  We will relish in this victory tonight, but we will be back at work tomorrow continuing to get better.  The Classic was amazing and came through when we needed him the most.  I'm proud of this team and I'm excited for our fans.

We play our game the best that we can. We have a top flight quarterback,  running back, and receiving duo that can test any defense. We will work on our o-line to continue to get better and I think you will see that against New Jersey and I believe our pass rush will be the deciding factor.

We lost a defensive game, but there were some positive things that we can take away from the game. For those of you who have questions about Brewster, have no worry because im not worried. Coach Hollingsworth said it best.  Once William gets 100% comfortable he will be a force to be reckoned with.  So now we learn from this game and build and get better for the next game.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on August 21, 2015, 11:12:33 PM
A couple of things. First,  our defense is playing well two weeks into the season. We aren't getting a ton of sacks but we are getting pressure on the quarterback and our secondary has played well. Second, despite playing two of the better defenses in the league The Classic is finding running room and excites me to think about what he's going to do the rest of the season.  Lastly,  Brewster while playing two of the best secondaries in the league only has one turnover. This gives me confidence in knowing that he is our franchise quarterback. He is managing the game and the possessions and will continue to get better.

Post by: GM Justin on August 26, 2015, 07:51:03 PM
Well, that is what I call a tough day. Not only did we lose on the last drive, but we lost Brewster for a good chunk of the season.  A damn tough break.

With that being said I do want to point out that our defense is playing some damn good football and our rush defense is spectacular. Tacklebot is a great leader on defense and helps carry out Coach Carpenter's vision.

The Classic is proving to be the beast we knew he was going to be and it looks like Slaughter and Pitts are starting to get going.  We have a lot to be excited about and its still early in the season. We will continue to get better on both sides of the ball and we will string some wins together.  We will get hard to work this week to get Blankenship ready to go.

I honestly don't think we need to change the offense.  He is a very accurate passer, he just doesn't have the arm strength to be a full time starter.  I think he will be ok for us, but I am worried what will happen if he goes down with an injury.  I think we need to look at cutting Singer or Swafford and signing another QB to back up James.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on August 27, 2015, 12:47:27 PM
Alright, I will look into a backup.  However, the mention of Swafford brings up a topic I want to discuss with you which is the offensive line.  I'm slightly concerned with the amount of sacks we are giving up.  Do you think it could possibly helped if we switched Tribble to either G or T and inserted him into the starting lineup?

Coach, I appreciate your old-school spirit as I share the same spirit as well but whatever you do please don't use wallpaper.  It's too outdated and does not look all that appealing no matter the pattern.  Just paint the walls an earth tone color and have your items an accent color to play off the color scheme.

Alright coach, get to practice and let me figure our some roster moves.

Princess Twang....

I have a couple of things.

First, if I were to cut someone how will that affect our budget and what not?

Second, how much is it to train John Tribble at the guard position and how long will it take before it takes into effect?
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS

Well bless your heart sugar, if we cut a player we pay 50% of their salary for the remainder of years on the contract, which continues to come from our salary cap, OR we can pay the entire total (50% x the number of years) in one payment from the salary cap and be done with it.   

Now with Mr. Tribble, if we want him to permanently move to guard it will cost us 250K PR to change his position, but we would also have to do the same to move a player to his old position to stay in compliance with the league's roster minimums..  Alternatively, we can play him at any position for the season, but keep him labeled as a center at no cost, he just doesn't train with his position group which could effect his progression and understanding in the long term.

Jose, as you know William Brewster is out for an extended period of time due to injury.  This means that we need to create a roster spot to bring in a backup quarterback.  Unfortunately, after long consideration I feel that the best route is for us to create that roster spot by releasing you.  It is with a heavy heart that I am going to have to cut you, especially so early in the season and your rookie season at that.  But I wanted to bring you in and tell you man-to-man.  I hope you understand and encourage you to continue working out and working on your skills so either another team can pick you up or I can add you back to the team in the offseason.

Thats two weeks in a row that our offense has suffered a monumental loss.  But our guys didnt let it phase them and they fought to the very end.  Carlson was a beast once again and our defense has been stellar all year.

We are a quarter way through the season and while we are only 1-3 we have face adversity and have responded well. We need to continue on the same path and we will pick up some wins.

Alright here is the final offer.  1 year for 3MM or 2 years at 4MM each.  We want 4, but if you're only offering 3 as your max, we'll sign and test free agency after the year.  We understand you will have Pitts back next year, so we are fine being a stopgap and the finding a starting job next year.

WEEK 5 PRESS CONFERENCE

(http://imageshack.com/a/img904/7917/FINANb.jpg)


THE MEDIA WAITS FOR YOU TO GIVE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE WEEK. THEY WAIT TO HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS ON YOUR ESPN NEWS, YOUR UPCOMING OPPONENT, YOUR THOUGHTS ON MAKING A TRADE GOING FORWARD, AND YOUR CHANCES OF ACHIEVING YOUR OWNER GOALS FROM THE START OF THE SEASON.
 
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on September 07, 2015, 10:26:24 AM
It was another tough week that ended in a loss. Our running game is operating on all cylinders,  but we've got to figure out something with the passing game to get it going and that is on me and the coaches. However, our guys continue to play as hard as they can and continue to fight for each other and our fans.

Once I signed on as GM my first piece of business was to find a defensive end that could get to the quarterback. Through research, film, and scouting I was convinced that David Wilson could be that guy and should be that guy. Through the process we discovered the toe injury and I knew if we could get that fix then he could be really special. And here we are at this point and he almost has a sack a game.

We have Alabama next week and they had gotten off to a hot start. They've had a couple of injuries and some other stuff going on but they are still a good team that will be prepared and we must prepare ourselves.

Improving this team is my job amd with that comes exploring the possibility of making a trade. With that being said, I won't make a trade just for the sakes of it.  It has to be something that will absolutely improve this team.

Our owner set the goal of building the franchise and despite our record I believe we have done that. We have a very solid defense with one of the better linebackers and defensive ends in the league.  We have the threats on offense as well but as you know we've had two big time injuries that have hampered us.

I saw Mr. King on the way into the office, he told me with our injuries he's not expecting much for us this year and he's happy with what we are building.

...That's nice and all, but I want our offense to do more, even without Brewster and Pitts.  We need to get more out of our possessions.

Another tough week that resulted in a loss. Our guys are going out and putting forth their best effort but we are coming up on the short end. This week we just didn't keep our offense on the field long enough. I like to watch watch DC play. GM Jon ways has his guys ready to play amd they always play hard. The owners meeting is always a unique situation and Im not sure what I want to see come from the meeting but  ive heard that GM Pancho is questioning the 3 year rule and while I dont think it needs to be in place I dont think its that big of a deal and dont foresee many teams drafting kids outnof high school or after one year of college. Our guys have fought hard but we have to find a way to get our offense going.

You are currently sitting with the worst record in the league at 1-5, and you're taking a trip to Long Beach to face the suddenly red-hot Mermen.  Do you think you can improve on your league worst 138 yards per game passing and 13 points per game on offense against a defense that is ranked near the bottom of the HIFL, and how do you plan on stopping them from scoring 37 points?
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on September 12, 2015, 02:50:41 PM
I absolutely believe we can and more importantly,  will. Brewster is back and I think he will flourish. With our running game balancing things out I think we can put 40 on the board. As far as stopping them,  we have a very good defense that unfortunately has had to play a lot of minutes. With the proper rest they can be super good and we have a strong pass rush that is tough to stop. And we havr a good enough front seven to contain that Mackey guy.

I understand but let me say this. This organization and the fans have total confidence in you and your ability to excel at quarterback. I wouldn't have signed you otherwise. Has it been a rough start? Yes. But that doesn't mean it has to end that way. Its not about how you start the race but how you finish.  We have time left to turn our season around, but feeling bad about how things have started isn't going to help. We cant change the past we can only effect the future. So consider this week a fresh start to the end of the season. Now is the time to prove your worth and prove that you are an elite quarterback in this league like we know you are.

Fellas It has been a rough first six weeks of the season. we've been through a lot with injuries and what not. But like family, we have stuck together and have always had each others back. With that being said, its not too late to turn our season around. We still have time to turn things around and compete and finish the season strong. Its time to come together like never before and push your brother beside you to give his very best on every play. Its time to go out there and give 110% and play until the whistle blows.  Its time to go out and show the league that we are a force to be reckoned with.

It was a another tough week. Our passing game continues to struggle though it did improve slightly.  I was happy about the defensive touchdown as well as our guys have played their assets off all season. We still have some work to do with the passing game but we will get there.

The Classic is also a class act.  He has the chance to rewrite the record books but the only thing he is worried about is the team. Thats a true team player. We would love to see him break the record and win a few games in the process.

I like the restriction removal on trades, but im not a big fan of the age restriction.  This isn't basketball where you can get by on athleticism as an 19 year. Football is a physical sport that will have major adverse effects on the bodies of teenagers.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on September 30, 2015, 07:47:24 AM
First and foremost we need to get pressure on the quarterback.  May has proven that he is turnover prone and if our pass rush can operate at its full capacity then we can force him into making some bad decisions and bad throws and create some turnovers.  We of course keeping feeding Carlson, but also continue to find ways to open up the passing game.

Post by: GM Justin on October 02, 2015, 04:20:00 PM
Interesting question. There are a lot of good players in this league but my ultimate goal other than winning a championship is to assemble a monster defense that offenses fear. With that said I would add Alfred Glass to our secondary.  With the talent and the way the secondary has played this season he would fit in and makes us that much better and would give our pass rush even more time to get to the quarterback.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on October 02, 2015, 06:18:34 PM
I think the word upset does not apply. We are an expansion team so this is the first time everybody is playing with each other. Plus the injuries to him and Pitts have not helped either.  Obviously we expected more out of our offense, specifically the passing game, but we have to assess the situation as a whole before we blame any one player. We will continue to make tweaks to try and jumpstart the pass game.

Ricky Lackey please.

Ricky, welcome to Music City. Also, I am a fellow alumni of Coastal Carolina so its good to have another Chanticleer in town. We have traded Wilber Slaughter so your presence in the passi passing game is going to increase.

GM Justin, this is Jennifer with the league office... it is my duty to inform you that your trade with Missouri has been Voided due to your violation of the league's current trade policy.

On August 31st you sent 1.75MM in PR to the Maine Red Lobsters for Ricky Lackey's contractual rights.   This trade with the APL was your "one trade" allowed for the season.

While next season the rules will change as per the league owner's meeting, you are in violation.

Your trade has been voided, and you will be fined $4MM in PR for both this season and next.  Please submit your fine to the league office immediately, if you do not have the money to accommodate this penalty the league will require you to use your S6-Offseason Amnesty clause now to clear the funds.

Thank you and have a nice day.

You sent  league asset, your PR money, to another team for the rights to a player. You traded money for a player.  After interviewing your PR secretary we were made aware that yournegotiationa started with a player for player offer which was counter with financial compensation. You should have known you were making a trade.

Post by: GM Justin on October 06, 2015, 12:25:34 PM
Mr. King,

I'm sure you have noticed that I have gotten ourselves into a pickle.  With the injuries and our struggles I got a little over zealous and made an extra trade that went against league rules and the organization has been docked $4mm this season and next season.  Now the only way we can pay the $4mm this season is to amnesty clause one of our players and the only one that has PR large enough is Noah Rose who is the cornerstone of our offensive line for years to come.  So I come to you to first, apologize for not realizing the exact rule and that the transaction I completed earlier to buy the contractual rights to Rickey Lackey constituted a trade.  It is a mistake that lands squarely on my shoulders.  The second reason I wanted to speak to you about, which I'm sure is out of the ordinary is to ask if you would consider a PR cash infusion of $3.75mm to cover the fine for this season so we don't have to cut Noah Rose.  Cutting him will be a big blow to our already struggling team and will definitely set our offense back even more.

The King doesn't spend extra money to bail out the mistakes of his subjects...

but I will at least offer a suggestion, maybe we can buy some of that PR back.  Figure we've spent half of it already on promoting the kid, maybe we up the salary to cut the PR in half and then make a roster move elsewhere.

Coach, I know we breached the subject of possibly cutting ties with Brewster if things did not turn around this season and go after the quarterback we scouted.  Well, due to an error on my part, it looks like we are going to have to go to that approach now.  I am going to have to amnesty Brewster to pay a fine that I owe to the league.  So that will leave us with Paulsen and Blakenship the rest of the season, in which I believe Paulsen should get the nod as the starter.  Who would you go with starter?

There is a big difference in cutting ties with a player and having a replacement, and just getting rid of him because of a botched move on your part that almost guarantees that we will finish with the worst record in the league.  Fan support is going to take a big hit, and you best believe myself and the coaching staff are already losing faith in you over this bungle.

What else is there to say?
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on October 12, 2015, 03:02:42 PM
You're absolutely right coach and I 100% understand the losing faith in me, but I ask that you keep your faith instilled in me.  Our season has been a bad break after another. Yes, I screwed up and am having to scramble to clean up after myself but we haven't been performing any better on the field with Brewster back so this gives us a chance to see which quarterback is worthy to remain on the roster for next season and give them the chance to build some confidence going forward.  We are already dead last in the league so there is nowhere to go but up.  Maybe a permanent quarterback change can help rally the guys and possibly tough out a few victories.  We have the stepping stones to be a very good team in the future with a very solid defense that will only get better when we add to it, a stout running game, and a stud offensive tackle that will be the cornerstone of our line for years to come.  Unfortunately we are going to have to continue to take our licks the remaining of the season but I believe we will be better because of it in the long run.

No sir.  Just like with the restructuring of Mr. Rose's contract, we have already spent 1/2 of the PR in anyone's contract, unless we use the amnesty clause, we are on the hook for 50% of salary and PR for the life of any contract we terminate.

The amnesty clause would completely free us of salary and PR from a deal as the league pays the entire contract from its own pool and we are clear of the deal.

Brew, it pains me to have to do this, but I am going to have to use the amnesty clause on you and release you from the team.  I have made a mistake and have to pay the penalty out of our PR money and the only viable way will be for me to have to amnesty you to recoup the PR money.  In all honesty, I don't expect you to understand but its just a decision I have had to make and I completely understand if you are furious but it's the only real option I have.  I'm sorry Will.

MID-SEASON PRESS CONFERENCE

(http://imageshack.com/a/img904/7917/FINANb.jpg)


THE MEDIA WAITS FOR YOU TO GIVE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE WEEK'S GAME. THEY EXPECT TO ALSO HEAR ABOUT YOUR PERFORMANCE THROUGH THE FIRST 8 GAMES, YOUR PLACE IN THE DIVISION, CONFERENCE, AND LEAGUE STANDINGS, AND HOW YOU EXPECT THE REST OF YOUR SEASON TO PLAY OUT... DONT FORGET YOUR ESPN NEWS EITHER.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on October 13, 2015, 04:00:24 PM
Another defeat and our rushing attack was stopped, however there was some improvement in the passing game before both guys got hurt so that is promising.  Obviously our performance through the first eight games is not what we envisioned, even being an expansion team.  We have it obstacle after obstacle and even a self-imposed obstacle that I created.  Our playoff chances might be slim, but we can still turn the season around a string a few wins together.

I understand Brewster and his client's frustrations and dismay about my releasing him and while the biggest reason is because I had to pay the league penalty for my screw-up, lets not let it be lost that when he was on the field Brewster didn't perform like a pro-bowl quarterback.  And before the argument is made about the talent level, let me go ahead and say we have the second ranked rusher in the league, we have a veteran receiver who is fast and can be a mismatch nightmare and before he was injured we had another receiver who can beat anybody down the field.  The common denominator however was the fact that our supposedly stud quarterback couldn't get them the ball.  I don't appreciate an agent talking about a team's talent level to blame his client's lack of stats all the while trying to undermine the guys who wear our jersey with pride and go out every game and bust their ass for their brothers they take the field with.  I will not stand and take that type of disrespect lying down.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on October 13, 2015, 04:34:05 PM
Not at all.  If players were constantly having nagging injuries you might have a point, but that hasn't been the case.  Brewster broke his ribs which I don't see how crossfit would have anything to do with that.  Pitts ruptured an achilles which is easily doable by planting in the ground the wrong way.  And now both quarterbacks have shoulder issues which are attributed to being hit and landing wrong on the shoulder.

Why can't you see, what you're doin' to me... because I believe the words you're sayin...

I continue to expect you to set the foundation for this franchise's future, but losing Brewster is concerning to me.  Please tell me you have a plan for our quarterback of the future, because baby, I don't see it being Paulsen or Blankenship, they ain't nothin' but hound dogs.
 
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on October 13, 2015, 09:10:28 PM
Mr. King,

I made a mistake and to correct it I had to make the unpopular choice of cutting our big time free agent quarterback.  While it sucks considering our record, it was going to happen anyways because quite frankly he wasn't living up to the hype or the contract so it gives a large chunk of cap space to go after some big time free agents that will actually make a difference.  It was a tough decision, but I did not do it lightly because I believe we have found our quarterback in the future and have a big chance of landing him in the draft.  I have done my due diligence on the scouting end to find him, among other players in the draft that will be able to help us.  We still have valuable pieces, we've just had tough breaks with injuries.  We have a stud at running back, we have talented receivers and can get better in free agency and have a solid defense that we can and will improve in the offseason.  We have the foundation to be great and we will be great.

John, welcome to Music City.  I know we just signed you, but you will be our starting quarterback this week.  I won't keep you long so you can have as much time as possible to prepare, but just wanted to welcome you to the team and look forward to your veteran leadership.

Guys, first and foremost this meeting is not to call out anyone player, but instead address you guys as a whole.  Our run blocking has been very good this season, but our pass blocking has been very poor.  I understand some of you may be playing out of position amongst other things, but that bottom line is we have to get better as a unit.  Our quarterbacks are taking a pounding and if we can buy them some time our passing game should greatly improve which will improve the offense, which will increase scoring, and will give our defense longer breaks by keeping them off the field.  I want you guys to take as much pride in your pass blocking that you do in your run blocking.  We have to practice harder and you guys got to push one another to get better and help each other improve.

We ended up on the losing end again, but we have a lot of positives from this week. Crowell came in with only a week's worth of prep time and really got our passing game going.  He had the two turnovers which proved costly, but again he only had a week to learn the playbook and get on the same page with the rest of the offense and i saw he did a damn good job.  I look forward to him keep improving our passing game.  We dominated every facet of the game, but it was the big plays that ended up doing us in.  But again, we moved the ball well both in the air and on the ground so that was promising and our defense was good as usual.

I don't make it a practice to comment on this organization's draft strategy and who we are interested in drafting.

Words can't explain how I feel right now.  Despite all of the trials and tribulations our team has been through this year our guys have continued to battle each day in practice and on gameday.  Their consistency and hard work paid off this week.  We beat a team that nobody gave us a chance to beat and did so in convincing fashion.  Crowell is doing a great job of running our offense and improving our passing attack which is keeping defenses honest and they can no longer stack eight in the box.  Our defense continues to perform at a high level and did a great job of forcing turnovers.  And our special teams stepped up this week and contributed a score as well.  An all around great team win!

We have the Stampede coming up next week and we will look to build upon our confidence and build upon the things we did great this week.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on November 04, 2015, 08:59:39 AM
The way he has performed in only two weeks has been great and I can't help but get excited to see how good he really can be once he fully grasps the playbook and builds chemistry with all of the offensive guys.  I can definitely see him as a long-term solution and his experience will lend to him being a mentor for a younger quarterback as well.

Your defense has steadily improved, now ranked in the top 7 in the league in all 4 major categories.  This week you face Orlando's pass game which is #1 in the East.  How do you plan on slowing down their air game?

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on November 04, 2015, 09:14:11 AM
Our secondary has played great all year and still continues to get better.  Our pass rush with Wilson and Salmon on the edges is going to be key to disrupting their passing attack.  If we can get pressure on the quarterback I feel our secondary will have a good chance of knocking down passes and come up with an interception or two.  We just have to get the quarterback uncomfortable and force him out the pocket and make bad throws.

We are fifth in the league in sacks, 3rd lowest in the league in interceptions, and middle of the pack in passes broken up, so if we can get to Aquino I think we can slow them down, but if he gets time in the pocket, we might be in for a rough game.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on November 13, 2015, 08:58:35 AM
Words cannot express how proud I am of this team.  Despite all of the odds that stacked up against us earlier in the year our guys have continued to bust their ass day in and day out and the dividends are finally starting to pay with our second win in a row.  Our game plan on the defensive side of the ball worked just how we drew it up.  We got pressure on the quarterback and sacked him five times and forced two interceptions, one of which we returned to the house.  The Classic was clutch as usual and Crowell has kept our passing game more consistent since he's been at the helm.  And last, but certainly not least, our offensive line has really stepped up their performance over the past couple of weeks.  If I'm not mistaken they had a collective 21 pancakes this week and allowed only one sack. 

Our goal, as it always has been, is to take things a game at a time and focus on our next opponent and we will do just that.  We will start preparing for Pearl Harbor and tailor our game plan to fit our plan of attack for them.

No.  You have to think about how many different quarterbacks he has had to try and get accustomed to on top of not being on our roster at the beginning of the season.  He had to learn the playbook on top of trying to build rapport with three different quarterbacks.  Not an easy task.  He is putting in the work needed and I am confident his performances will improve.

Carlson faces the the worst rush defense in the league this week, but you also have to take on the big-play boys in Smoak, DGB, and Hodge.  What is your gameplan?  A Shootout, or do you think you can shutdown their air attack?
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on November 13, 2015, 04:52:58 PM
If we can get pressure on the quarterback it is going to be hard for their play makers to get enough touches.  With the way our entire defense has been playing, especially with sacks and creating turnovers I feel confident that we can limit their offense.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on November 13, 2015, 04:57:59 PM
I think our 3-4 scheme works good with our talent.  Blevins and Small make it easier for us to be able to blitz because they are so good and our secondary has been steadily improving which further supports our blitzing.  Plus, Salmon and Wilson are proven talents, but teams just didn't really focus on what their issues were.  We did, we addressed them and it is paying off big time.

Third win in a row baby!  This team is really starting to roll.  Passing game saw a big improvement, The Classic ran wild, our offensive line was a monster, and our defense was lights out!  We shut down their receiving corps and other than that big run we gave up, they barely moved the ball.  They only had three first downs and were 0/11 on third down!  Not to mention we dominated the clock.  Our guys played like true warriors our there...not like those wannabes down in Georgia.

I'm really excited about the rest of the season.  I think we have a real shot at completely turning around our fortunes and make this season a success.

You defense was one of the first all year to contain the passing trio of Smoak, Hodge, and Green-Beckham.  How big was that for your team to roll to its 3rd straight win?
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS

Our defense has really got their confidence up and I believe they will continue their momentum.  Our pass rush is always going to be key, but we have the size and talent in our front seven to contain Jeremy Martin as well.  And with the way our secondary is playing I believe we can really contain their attack.

We will definitely have our hands full, but if we can contain them on offense then I think Carlson will run down their throats. They are giving up over 140 yards per game on the ground, that's where we can really gash them.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on November 20, 2015, 09:43:52 PM
I agree coach.  We are really hitting our stride on defense and with our offensive playing well we can keep our guys off the field and give them the proper rest to help combat the Inferno's offensive attack.  We've won three games in a row, how do you feel about the rest of the season?  Think we have it in us to make a nice run to the end?

I think we do.  We play our division in the final 3 weeks and that division is really one that we could win all 3 games if we come into the games healthy and with a strong plan of attack. 
We have definitely got some nice building blocks here, this run has our expansion season looking like a good success in my book. We learned a lot about our team, and we know our strengths.

Man, that was a tough loss.  It was a great back and forth game and we came up just short in overtime.  I tip my hat to the Inferno for a hard fought game.  Overall we did a great job on defense again and contained their high powered offense.  Our pass rush was key again and came up big with sacks and turnovers.  Daniel was a monster and was glad to see him get the defensive player of the week honors.  As you know Crowell got hurt so I will speak with the doctor and see what the prognosis, but all signs indicate it's not a significant injury. 

Despite the loss, we still have a lot of momentum.  Our guys are playing great football and I know they will continue to do it as we make a push to finish out the regular season strong.

Thanks coach.  I will let you get back to preparation.

Princess Twang...I have a couple of things that I would like for you to get me information on please.

1) Are we mathematically incapable of making the playoffs?

2) I have Carlson with 1,609 yards rushing and 16 TDs.  Can you confirm?  And is he the league's leading rusher?

(http://espnsportssims.net/HIFL/var/albums/Logos/mc1.png)



Technically speaking sir, if we win the remainder of our games, New Jersey loses the remainder of their games, and Missouri only defeats New Jersey then we would be 7-9, Missouri would be 7-9, and New Jersey would be 7-8-1, so we have no chance of winning the division.

The Wildcard race is guaranteed to have an 8-8 team at worst, and in that scenario a 7-9 team could make the final spot, but we lost to both Atlanta and Alabama, meaning they each hold the tie breaker over us, therefor we are officially out of the playoff race.


As for Mr. Carlson, yes your numbers are correct and yes he is the leading rusher in the league at this time. 16 yards ahead of Jose Mackey.

It was a tough week where we had some struggles getting our offense in a rhythm.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on November 30, 2015, 07:33:29 AM
It was a close game, but in the end we came out on the wrong side of it.  But I am proud of the way our guys battled and fought throughout the season.  We had some big injuries in the beginning of the season that kind of derailed us, but our guys continued to bust their ass and we were able to end the season on a fairly high note with 4 victories over the last six weeks or so. 

Our defense steadily improved all season and really played some lights out football towards the end.  We have a lot to build upon on that side of the ball which makes the coaching staff and myself very happy.  We have some great pieces to have an even more dominant defense next season.

I was hoping The Classic would win the rushing title, but he came up a few yards short but I definitely think George should be in the MVP race.  The guy has carried this team on his back the entire season and was an absolute workhorse and he deserves credit for it.  Despite our struggles this season on offense I am optimistic going into the offseason.  We will get Erik back from his injury and our offensive line improved greatly the second half of the season and I'm sure will only continue to get better.

5-11, may look bad from the outside, but overall I'm pleased with how our guys performed given some of the circumstances.  I am proud to be the General Manager of this great organization and look forward to improving upon our inaugural season.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on November 30, 2015, 12:33:57 PM
I believe our greatest achievement was not giving up despite how the season was unfolding.  We had some huge injuries on the offensive side of the ball which really killed any type of consistency that is needed.  But our guys battled day in an day out and never gave up.

As far as what I would do differently...that's a tough one.  Our defense continued to get better as the season wore on.  Our offensive line played spectacular towards the end of the season, so a lot of things were going in the right direction. And of course there were the injuries...honestly I wouldn't change anything. This season was a great learning experience.

No regrets in signing WIlliam Brewster.  At the time, I felt comfortable with signing him and being an expansion team I would still have signed him.  It was a logical decision that I would do again.  We probably should have put him on IR just to make sure he was completely healthy since our season wasn't going well at that time when he came back.

GM Justin, you were a hunk-a-hunk-a burning good in the last half of the year.... now sure the signing of William Brewster didn't go as planned, but you did well finishing the season with some wins, and getting us some notoriety with the play of George Carlson.

1 Tight End

GM Justin, Jennifer Baker with the league office...

It has been brought to our attention that you are attempting to negotiate a contract with a player who is not within your exclusive rights...

Due to this, we are forced to charge you with Tampering.   The commissioner has levied a draft and PR fine.  You have been fined your remaining 2.25MM in S6 scouting PR, and you will forfeit your team's 4th round draft pick, leaving you only with the one you acquired via trade.

Please be more careful in the future.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on December 14, 2015, 01:12:35 PM
Well I attended the combine and submitted my $2mm expense to the league for the combine.  So I no longer have $2.25mm in S6 PR.  So with that oversight by the league in trying overdraft my S6 PR and driving my accounting department bonkers, how about my punishment just be a fine of the remaining $250K in PR and I keep my draft pick for the mix up by the league.

That is a great idea, but unfortunately that is not acceptable.  The league does not typically charge fines based on the remaining PR, simply a flat fee, we were attempting to be generous, but as our books were not up-to-date you will be given a choice.

You can forfeit the 5th round draft choice, and pay 2MM out of your Season 7 PR.

Or you can accept the standard punishment and pay 4MM in PR fines next year.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on December 14, 2015, 02:40:16 PM
I will take the first option.  Forfeit 5th round draft pick and the $2mm S7 PR

Hey boss, before we go any further I just want to thank you for giving me this opportunity.  Man, everyone always said to me "You ain't gonna be a pro if you play at Marshall..." and I proved them wrong.  Then they said "you won't be a first round pick, you went to Marshall" and now thanks to you I proved them wrong again.

We scouted you, so I know what kind of man you are Shane.  I know that you are going to play with that chip and make a real impact on this organization.  Our scouts loves what they saw and after reading their reports there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted you apart of this team which is why I traded for another top five pick so I could make sure we would get to draft you.

Mike, I wanted to reach out to you to discuss some business regarding Stanley Wright.  I have been doing some evaluating of both the roster and salary cap and want to know if we can renegotiate Stanley's contract.  For me, given his age and performance I believe his $6mm per season is a hefty price tag at this point in his career.  I'd like to keep him on the team because of his veteran presence, but I'd like to do so at a cheaper price.

WELCOME TO SEASON 7

THE MEDIA WAITS FOR YOU TO GIVE YOUR THOUGHTS ON YOUR OFF-SEASON AND YOUR OUTLOOK FOR SEASON 7
 
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on January 20, 2016, 08:07:49 AM
Ladies and Gentlemen, it is a pleasure to be sitting here in front of you on this glorious day.  Today marks the second season of Music City Kings football and I am excited about where this football team is at.  I am very happy with what our scouts and coaches did to prepare for the draft and believe we had a great draft.  We got our quarterback of the future, shored up our offensive line, added a receiver that will give us a one, two punch for years to come and got ourselves a stud in the secondary.  We followed that up with some moves that made improvements to our team as well.

I believe we will be a lot better on offense this year and not so one dimensional.  That, coupled with a strong defense and I believe we have a real good chance to compete this year and win some ball games.  Our team and coaches have put in a lot of work in training camp and we are ready for season seven.

Most analysts are calling this draft class not only the best of the year, but possibly the best in history.  Do you buy into the hype, and how do you keep the players from getting too big of a head after hearing all this praise?      
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on January 20, 2016, 02:13:50 PM
For me, judging the best draft class is based on 3-5 years from now and how those draft prospects have performed in the league.  While these guys are still young, I'm confident they know that at the end of the day they have to prove themselves on the field and perform at the highest level.  I can only speak for our organization, but that level of expectation will be set not only for rookies, but for the entire team.

Last season "The Classic" got a lot of work and rewarded the team with some of the best yardage we've seen from a running back to date, he is getting older, and you've said you want the offense to be less one-dimensional... What type of work load do you expect to see for Carlson this season?      
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on January 20, 2016, 02:58:55 PM
Carlson is still our featured back and I believe he has actually gotten better since last season.  He will still get the bulk of the carries, but we do have some good talent backing him up that can help ease the workload at times.  But when I said one-dimensional, I was referencing a bigger threat with the passing game.  Carmazzi has an arm for days and we have Pitts back from injury and a very good supporting cast of receivers to help propel our passing attack.

Carmazzi looked a little off, but it was his first time on the field for a HIFL game of any sort.  I liked that he got the ball to Saunders and Pitts, and Erik looked good coming back from his injury.

Carlson was already in mid-season form, and I think despite his age, he is poised to do it again this year. Our defense did pretty well out there too, and we faced a very improved San Antonio defense.

Post by: GM Justin on January 26, 2016, 07:48:40 AM
The preseason games served their purpose and gave us a good luck at our team in game action.  There are a lot of positives that we saw from the two games and we recognized a few areas on where we need to improve to ensure we are playing at the highest level.  Overall, I was encouraged by what I saw from our team and I am excited about the upcoming season and I believe our fans should be excited as well.

What was your opinion on Storm Woods' preseason?     
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on January 26, 2016, 02:19:55 PM
He showed a lot of promise and put his skills on display.  He has proven that he is a legitimate number two running back and has the potential to be a featured back in the future.  The fumbles are definitely an area of concern, but that is something that he can correct by putting in work on the practice field.

With Pitts back in the line up, and more weapons in the passing game, what type of debut do you expect from King Carmazzi?      
 
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on January 26, 2016, 02:52:06 PM
King has all the tools to have a great season and to be a great quarterback.  The biggest thing for him is knowing that he doesn't have to put everything all on him.  As you said we have play makers all around him and one of the best rushing attacks in the league that he can rely on and let others around him make plays.  As long as he remembers that he will have a fantastic season.

------


Gentlemen, a new season is upon us and with that comes expectations.  We have some new faces this season and I believe that along with the veterans of the team,they will help improve this team and catapult us to the next level. There are reports and predictions in the media that have us winning the division and while I believe we have the talent to do so, you must remember that games aren't won on paper.  Games are won out on the practice field, in the film room, and on game day.  We must take things one game at a time, and one play at a time.  If you all strive to win each and every play then I wholeheartedly believe we will have a great season.  Now lets go play some football!

We have started the season on the right foot by picking up the win. We have several things that we did great with and they give us reason to be excited. We did miss a couple of opportunities that would have really put the game out of reach but those are things we can get better on in practice. I'm excited for our fans about the team we have and what we can accomplish.

King played a heck of a game. It was his first regular season game and he managedid it well and was terrific on the last drive of the game to seal the game for us.  King and Jamie will always be compared to each other but our main concern is King's maturation and developing consistency.

We got a tough contest against Lincoln who likes to throw the ball. I like our pass rush against them and think if we get pressure that our secondary can take some chances. Mackey had a big game against their defense so I like The Classic's chances.

That this game was an anomaly. The defense is there and the offensive output is there but when you turn the  ball over as much as we did you won't win. If we take better care of the ball I believe we will make a statement this season.

Well we played a tough team and unfortunately lost.  We are still turning the ball over at a high rate and for us to be able to succeed and reach our potential, we are going to have to protect the ball.  We didn't get as much pressure on the quarterback as we normally do and it showed with the outing their quarterback had.  We are currently 1-2 and have some work to do, but we have the talent on this team to win the division and it's just a matter of our guys continuing to gel with each other.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on March 14, 2016, 08:41:28 AM
It was a tough one to lose in overtime, but I must say I am proud of how our guys fought their way back into the game to force overtime.  Our defense stepped up time and time again when we needed them...five sacks, an interception, and three forced fumbles.  Everybody pitched in on defense and kept us in the game.  On offense we are starting to see glimpses of how good we really can be.  King showed poise at the end of regulation with the drive down the field and the touchdown pass to Rosen.  The Classic was his normal self and the combination of Pitts and Stands showed how good the two of them can be.  Despite the loss, I am proud of this game and how our guys responded to adversity...that's what builds character.

I echo the sentiments of Coach Crowder about the way our guys played this week and rallied behind King.  We are 1-3 the first quarter of the season, but we are getting better each game and I think our guys are really starting to develop and gel as a team and I think the fruits of our labor will show.

We have the defending champs next week and I believe this is the game where we will make a statement. Our team busts their asses each and every day and I believe its our time to break out.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on March 14, 2016, 11:24:43 AM
Our bread and butter is the run game and anytime we face a team with a less than stellar rush defense we will look to exploit that weakness. I think The Classic will get his fair share of carries, but Woods brings change of pace that can also be highly effective against the Cobras.

Tough loss, but like I said... we showed a lot this week I think.  The defense did it's part.

I agree coach, our guys did show a lot and the defense was stellar.  Still need more work with Carmazzi on some of his reads to help eliminate the interceptions but that will come as the season progresses.  I know what our record is, but do you have any major concerns after the first four games of the season?

Storm, I wanted to bring you in briefly and commend you for your hard work on improving your ball control and limiting the fumbles.  It is great to see a young talent such as yourself bust your ass on the practice field to make sure you improve your game.  Keep up the good work.

THE MEDIA WAITS FOR YOU TO GIVE YOUR THOUGHTS ON YOUR GAME, YOUR NEWS, ANOTHER NEWS STORY AROUND THE LEAGUE, AND YOUR NEXT OPPONENT
 
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on March 22, 2016, 11:42:58 AM
Well to be honest, I'm heartbroken for our guys.  We added a lot of new guys to the roster this offseason and a lot of young talent and there have been growing pains, but our guys have improved each day, each week.  They came out guns blazing this week against the defending champs, but unfortunately we came up on the short end of the stick. Definitely a tough loss, but we played our most complete game of the season and we have a lot of positives to build on.  Despite the loss, I believe in my heart that this was our coming out game as far as a complete team that should be taken seriously.  Our guys are hungry, I can see it in there eyes, I can see it on the practice field and I can see it on game day.  We are much better than our 1-4 record indicates and we will turn this season around.

The punt at the end of the game is one of those things that happens in this great game of ours.  Jarrett has been a solid punter for us since he's been here and honestly, it's just one of those things that happens.  It sucks, but we will be better because of it.

We have St. Paul next week and I just got wind of some sort of scandal that might be happening.  I try to keep my head down and focus on our team so I don't want to get into specifics, but we will prepare for this game just like we have done every other game this season.  We know what we need to work on and we will do continue to improve.

How big was it to see a turnover free game from King Carmazzi, and do you believe he needs to produce more yardage for the team to be successful?      
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on March 22, 2016, 10:23:58 PM
It was great to see and is a testament to his maturation. He is putting in the work in each day to get better and better.  We have one of the best running games in the league and that will allow us to continue to help King get better. As long as he keeps the turnovers down there is no set yardage he will need to produce.

Indeed we did.  Coach, you and your staff are doing a great job with this team.  I know our record doesn't show it right now but we are making big strides and we will turn this season around.

I'm starting to think that we should continue with a more run heavy approach for the time being and allow King more time to get comfortable with the system and managing the game, much like this past game against DC.  I think this will help him to learn more and build his confidence and then as the season goes we can bring it back to more of a balanced attack.  Your thoughts?

Very well.  Are there any performance issues on the field that you are seeing that need to be addressed?  I know in the preseason there was talk about Wright overtaking Brown at the FS position.  How is the scenario playing out in your eyes?

Brown has yet to miss a tackle, after missing 40 of them last year.  He's playing some great football for us right now with a forced fumble, sack, and INT.  While I like what Wright brings us as a young player, I think his time will come later, right now Brown is playing well in the system.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on March 31, 2016, 07:10:18 PM
We played a complete game on both sides of the ball and man was it a thing of beauty.  Both the offense and defense were clicking and they both played ofor each other. This game proved that we have hit our stride.

Our running attack and quarterback pressure has been key this year just as it was last season.  Also the way our guys have played well together and have continue to work has also worked.  As far as what hasn't worked I would say my throwing King into the fire too early without relying on  our running game to help him get acclimated. That is all on me but the last two games we've lessened his load to give him a chance and he's really developed.

We are not where we want to be in the standings but we will get there. We are hitting our stride and will make a run. Week 7 brings another tough contest which will really test our defense but our guys are up to the challenge.

They have a good team, but I think their record is a little inflated.  Without a real QB they are going to be in trouble against us, and if we can get Pitts going like Lincoln got Houser going last week, we could run away with it because I don't think they can stop Carlson.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on April 20, 2016, 08:42:55 AM
We finished with a dominating win against a very good team.  Our guys played tremendous and had control of the game from the very beginning.  We held them to 204 total yards, 4/13 on the third down, had 5 sacks, we committed no turnovers and no penalties and dominated the time of possession. It was an all around fantastic game from our guys and I couldn't more proud.  This team is coming together like we said they would and the product on the field is reaching its potential.

We have another big test next week in the prime time game against Alabama.  They are a conference foe who is at the top of their division and we look forward to the battle.  As for the division race, we are currently in second and are sniffing a wildcard playoff spot.  The key is taking things one game at a time and handling our business each week.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on May 06, 2016, 09:07:46 AM
1. What happened this week: what did your team do right, what did they do wrong?

We did a lot of things right and controlled the game up until the fourth quarter.  Penalties hurt us as well as the turnovers.  We also didn't finish the game out and let them come back and win.

2. Grade your Coaches, your offense, and your defense up to this point in the season...

I'd give everyone a solid B.  We are currently 3-5, but this game and the game against DC we should have won which would put us at 5-3.  We just weren't able to close out those games.  On offense we have the running game and Erik Pitts is having a breakout season, but turnovers have been our Achilles heel.  The defense has been playing great, especially as of late but we haven't been able to stop teams from scoring when it matters most.  However, I believe all of these are things we can improve on and finish the season strong.

3. Grade yourself and the job you've done through 8 games this year...

I'd give myself a B.  We've got a good, young talented team that has taken some time to gel, but I think we have a good core for years to come.  I should have left us a little more financial flexibility that could be used if needed.  With that said, my job isn't too difficult because I have complete faith in the coaching staff and our players and know that every week they all give 110%.

4. Who do you believe is the current front runner for the league's MVP award after 8 games, and who would you consider your team's MVP?

I think Trevor Jose has to be right up there for the league.  As for our team, I'd have to go with Erik Pitts. He is having a breakout season, which is great to see because of last year's injury.  But he's given our offense a new dimension and has taken some of the load off of The Classic.

5. With 8 Games left in the regular season, what is your main focus going forward?

Take things one game at a time and make a push for the playoffs.  I believe we have what it takes to win out and put ourselves in position.

6. What do you have to do to prepare for this week's game?

We have Atlanta, but we have to work on securing the ball and get some things going with the passing game to open our offense up a little more.

GM Justin, great work so far this season... we're a hunka hunka burnin' talent and potential.  Now listen here, you ain't a hound dog, that much is certain, but you aren't ready to wear these blue suede shoes just yet either... so I'm no raising expectations. 

We wanted to finish with a better record than last season's 5 wins, and we're 2 wins away with 8 games to play; BUT if you finish the season above .500, or make the playoffs, I'm make sure you're rewarded for your great achievements.


Thank you.... Thank you very much.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on May 17, 2016, 08:10:33 AM
Well, it seems to be a reoccurring theme for us so far this season...we have the lead in the fourth quarter but let the game slip out of our reach.  That's three or four games that's happened this season and it's a tough pill to swallow I must say.  Our guys played another great game, no turnovers, allowed less than 300 total yards but couldn't get the win.

To make matters worse the injury to The Classic was gruesome and my heart goes out to George.  He has been the heart and soul of this team for the past two seasons and the amount of hard work and dedication he has put in over his career is second to none.  Some people questioned my move of using my first expansion draft pick on him and giving him the contract that I did, but I put my faith in him and he delivered.  I can't say enough great things about him and we will definitely miss him on the field.

No, sir.  While George was the centerpiece of our offense and our team, Storm has proven to be a very good running back and couple him with the experience of Gallagher and I think we don't miss a beat with the running game.  Despite how disheartening this injury is, this is a pivotal moment that our team can and will rally around and make this final push for the playoffs.

Alright guys, its ridiculously cramped in here with 40+ of us being in here, so I'll make this quick.

I gave it all I got out there on every play.  People say I did it to prove I was legit, to prove I was better than just a back up for Coach Hollingsworth when I was in Vegas... but na, that's not the main reason I played how I played.. I Played hard for you guys. My brothers.

You have to play hard on every play for the guy next to you, the minute you play for yourself, you've lost.  So stay together, stay strong, and kick ass man... I'll be watching from home until they clear me to be on the sidelines.

Guys, we are at a crossroads in our season.  We still have a shot to make the playoffs, we still have a shot to make this season a success.  We've let a couple of games slip from our grasps, but we get better with each game and we are on the brink of busting things wide open.  As George said, you have got to play for each other, you have to go to war for the man next to you.  You've guys have been doing that, but now with one of our warriors out each and every one of you are going to have to dig a little deeper and fight just a little bit harder.  We've lost a couple of battles but are still in position to win the war.  Our time is now, gentlemen!  Now lets go out and take our rightful seat on the HIFL throne!  We are Kings!

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on June 01, 2016, 08:07:17 AM
We picked up the win and have kept ourselves in the hunt for a wildcard spot.  Our guys responded well to the news of George's injury from last week and played one hell of a game.  Our defense was suffocating and held the Knights to under 200 total yards. Definitely a great week for our guys and a big momentum booster.

As for the trades, I must say I haven't paid much attention to them.  A lot of them are more reactionary than anything as GMs are trying to make a splash to make a final push, but honestly I think it will end up hurting the majority of them as opposed to helping.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on June 01, 2016, 11:42:18 AM
I was very pleased, but I can't say that I'm surprised.  We drafted Storm for a reason and that was because of how talented he is and he proved this week that he can handle the workload.  We did go with the committee approach and Robert did good for us when he was out there, especially in the return game, but coach went with the flow and fed the hot hand.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on June 29, 2016, 08:20:54 AM
Honestly, I'm a little disappointed.  Another game where we lost in the fourth quarter.  This is like the third or fourth game this season where we were leading in the fourth quarter only to lose the game.  We would be sitting in different position right now if we would have closed out those games.  It's a tough pill to swallow and one I hope we don't have to swallow again.  We still have 5 games left to play and we can still turn things around and make a real impact, but we are going to have to closeout games.

This week you take on the seemingly unstoppable New Jersey Dragons.  11-0, and Trevor Jose has yet to throw an interception.  Earlier in the year Jose threw 6 TD's against your defense, what do you have to do to prevent a similar performance?
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on June 29, 2016, 09:55:56 AM
I think we need to get more pressure on Jose and force him out of the pocket and make him uncomfortable.  Last time we played we only managed two sacks, but we are going to need to get to him more and knock him down a good bit.  I believe our defense has definitely improved since our first time out against them and believe we will be able to slow them down.

We need to throw everything we've got at them.  It's going to be tough, but I think we need to come out guns blazing.  They are going to attack King, so we might want to up the run to limit the sacks, but we also need to send blitzers after Trevor, and get into his head.

I thought we had a good shot at beating Jersey, but we came up short. We did a great job stopping their running game, but Jose did another great job.  As far as Shane's comments, I wouldn't have said the same thing but I understand where he is coming from. At the same time, he took ownership of how the secondary performed and I think that is a sign of quality leadership.

One positive to take from this game was that King played a relatively clean game. Woods' fumble was costly though.

Post by: GM Justin on July 05, 2016, 12:25:25 PM
I was happy to see King's clean game, would have liked a higher completion percentage, but he controlled the ball.  So we got both strong safety's out so looks like we will need to start Wright at the position.

We had a big win this week! This game showed just how good we can be when clicking on all cylinders. We dominated every phase of the game. I'm proud of our guys.

The brawl in Jersey is unfortunate and it will be interesting to see how Kirk handles the situation. That's what happens when you have big egos.

We have Missouri next and despite their record they will give it their all and we cannot overlook them.

Well that was one disappointing performance this week.  I don't know if we were looking ahead to the next game or what, but we came out flat and looked uninspired.  We turned the ball over too much and after the first quarter we didn't execute very well.

As far as the next two weeks, we have to continue to play hard and execute every single play.

Post by: GM Justin on July 19, 2016, 03:25:10 PM
I would say it tainted our season.  We still had a chance to make the playoffs if we won out so it really affects our season.  With that said, Storm played a hell of a game and ever since The Classic went down, Storm has proven he can be a featured back.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on July 26, 2016, 02:59:47 PM
That was probably the most dominant defensive performance in the history of football. Despite being out of playoff contention our guys when out there as if we were playing for the Impact Bowl and absolutely dominated.

We finished the season on a strong note and we improved our record from our inaugural season. And we had a tough patch with losing The Classic. With that being said we are better than  our record. We had a handful of games that we let slip away in the fourth quarter. If we closed those out then we are in the playoffs.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on July 26, 2016, 05:09:49 PM
Really tough question, but sometimes starting a rookie QB can be tough as it relates to how much you put on their plate as far as game planning, practice, etc. You don't want to overwork or overload them, but I would say I should have had King in more film study to really give him the best chance to be successful on the field. He had a good season and he will continue to get better but I would say I should have helped him more.

It was a season where we stayed in the Heartbreak hotel GM Justin, but you are right... we improved none the less.

When I saw George Carlson go down I was worried our offense would stumble and crumble into rubble, but Storm Woods stepped up and showed that Coach Hollingsworth is a great RB whisperer.  We're not caught in a trap, we're going to go into next year as a hunka-hunka burnin' love and make some noise.  It's time to Shake, Rattle, and Roll in the off-season and continue to improve.

...oh, and lets cut down on King Carmazzi's league-record 25 interceptions, thank you very much!
 
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on August 03, 2016, 10:48:33 AM
Storm performed admirably and is the future of our backfield.  We will definitely work closely with King on the interceptions.  If there is nothing else, I hope you have a great day Mr. King.

Coach Crowder please.

Just to follow proper protocol, lets get your agent on the line.

Princess can you patch in Mike Maker on the line?

Mike thanks for joining us.  I wanted to discuss a possible restructuring of George's contract.

George, you're set to make $9mm this season so with the extra year I would say 2 years, $10mm total, so that would add an additional $1mm to your overall earnings and splitting it into $5mm per season.  I'm not sure where you are at, at this point of your career as far as being promoted so I will leave the PR option to you.  You've been great for this team and city so if you still want to be promoted then we can leave it in the contract.

GM Justin, we would make this deal with you, under the condition that we get the full payout regardless of George's decision to stay or go at the end of the season.  With the future up in the air, I don't want to cut my client out of half of his earnings.

If we can't make that happen, then we would rather stay put on the one year deal and then work on a team-friendly deal next off-season, which would absolutely be George's last.

PR Campaigns

King Carmazzi ($5mm)
Tag Line: The Ascension: King of HIFL
-He is already the 'King of Kings', but now his goal is to be the best quarterback in the HIFL.  A commercial and gameday video of King's best highlights as well as his work during the off-season showing his improvement. The tag line flashes at the end right before the video fades out with an image of him holding a football out with one arm, the HIFL logo showing and a crown on his head. ($3mm)
-Continuation of the Heirs Program ($2mm)

George Carlson ($1mm)
Tag Line: 27 Vintage
-A video package of Carlson's best highlights as a King will showing during games, but also during local television stations ($500K)
-T-shirts, in the teams burnt orange color, with 27 Vintage on the front will be given during home games. ($500K)

Erik Pitts ($2mm)
Tag Line: Catch Me If You Can
-Creation of the Pitt Lane inside the stadium where fans can try and race Erik before and after games. ($1.5mm)
-Introduction video of Pitts burning opponents from last season. ($500K)

Eddie Stands ($1mm)
Tag Line: Stands Up: Hands Down
-Eddie Stands has some of the best, if not the best hands in HIFL.  If you throw a jump ball, there is no doubt he will come down with it.  And because you can count on Eddie on the field you can count on him off the field.  Stands Up: Hands Down will be an anti-bullying campaign implemented in the local school district. ($1mm)

Billy Zepeda ($500K)
Tag Line: Lethal Weapon
-Billy had a breakout season in S7 and proved that he is truly a lethal weapon as he did it all on defense for the Kings last season.  He led the team in sacks, he is great tackler, he had interceptions and passes defended. Action figures of Billy will be given out at home games. ($500K)

Chris Blevins ($1mm)
Tag Line: The Sheriff
-Chris has been the captain of the defense since he has been in Music City.  He makes the calls on defense and directs everybody on the field.  Bobbleheads of Chris with a sheriff's hat will be created and passed out at home games.

John Fredrickson ($1mm)
Tag Line: Lieutenant
-Playing at a military institution and because Blevins is the captain, Fredrickson has been dubbed "Lieutenant". A documentary on Fredrickson and his life from The Citadel to the HIFL will be created and broadcast on local TV channels ($1mm)

Shane Barkley ($2mm)
Tag Line: The Shield
-Shane showed last season why he was a top 3 pick with the way he covered receivers and defended passes. He was a true protector of the end zone.  Plastic shields with the Kings logo sitting in Barkley's hands will be created and sold in the team shop. ($1mm).
-A citywide campaign in Nashville will be created for domestic violence and be called "The Shield". ($1mm)

Alfred Maggard ($2mm)
Tag Line: Maggard County
-There are no islands...just Maggard County where Alfred Maggard is the judge, jury, and executioner.  A section of seats behind the south endzone will be roped off and dubbed "Maggard County" where the rowdiest fans will sit and wear Maggard County t-shirts, with jail bars in the background.($500K)
-A kid's cartoon show will be created of Maggard, in his full uniform, going around stopping bad guys.  It will be aired on local TV stations on Saturday mornings and will be called...you guessed it...Maggard County ($1.5mm)

Alright coach, I'm still working on a deal for Rose.  While I'm finishing that, let's go ahead and chat about the team a little.  I read Coach Carpenter's report about the FS position so I'd like for Brown and Wright to battle it out during preseason to see who should get the final nod.  Do you think not starting Wright would be detrimental to his mental state or development?

1. What did you think of your teams off-season?
2. What do you think of your season goals set by your owner?
3. How did you feel about the pre-season?
4. Who is the one player you believe needs to "step up" to help this team perform at its best?
5. What makes you think this team will be better than it was last year?


 
 
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on December 17, 2016, 04:11:02 PM
1. I think we had a great offseason.  We added some pieces on defense that should make us an even better unit that last season.  We get George Carlson back and he and Storm Woods is a two-headed beast in the backfield that will be hard for teams to stop.  King is coming into his second year and will continue to improve.  I am excited about what we have here.

2. They are goals that we can meet, but I know this team won't just settle.

3. It was a great pre-season, our guys performed well.  The running game performed like a well oiled machine and our defense was amazing.  We had some fourteen or fifteen sacks in two games, which is incredible.  We defended passes and intercepted a few as well.  I am very pleased by our performance.

4. I believe Wynn and our kicking game needs to step up for us to perform at our best.  We had some issues last season winning close games and a lot of times it boils down to special teams that make the difference in close games.

5. I believe we are better on both sides of the ball than last season and I believe King's maturation will be the big key in us being better this season than last.

Well we know they've got a great offensive line now, so we have to deal with the problems that will create for us when it comes to stopping Elliott or getting pressure on Carr, but on defense it sounds like they just created a hole with Maxley unhappy and wanting a trade.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on December 28, 2016, 09:47:17 PM
We played a very tough team and we came on top with a complete victory!  I'm proud of our guys and the way they came out and played.  If we play like this every game we will be very tough to beat.  A lot of things went great, we had zero turnovers, we passed the ball well, ran the ball great, defense was stout and finished with eight sacks, and special teams did great. 

As far as what went wrong, I would say our third down conversions is what sticks out like a sore thumb.  We only converted 25% of our third downs.  We have to clean that up if we are going to compete at our highest levels. 

As far as next week, we have the two time defending champs coming to town.  It is going to be an early season game to really test our team to see where we are at and to see if we can be consistent with our play on the field.  I'm excited and think it will easily be the game of the week.

No, on the offensive side of the ball our running game has been top notch our first two seasons and we look to continue that again this season. As far defense, we really took a leap forward last season and we added some more pieces this off-season which we thought would improve the defense even more. We have guys who find the ball and hawk to it.

We played our asses off and someway, somehow those damn Cobras pulled out the victory in overtime.  Those guys must have nine lives or something.  Our guys played another great game, but we came out on the wrong side this time.  But it's nothing to hang our heads over.  There are a lot of things we did that we can be proud of, but we also recognize there are some areas that we can improve on. 

As far as going forward, I expect our guys to continue doing what they are doing.  We are an overtime field goal away from being 2-0, so I'm pleased with what we are doing thus far.  I will say that we need to find a way to convert more third downs though.  That's something that we have to improve on going forward.

Last week our first failed conversion was on a 3rd and 14 due to a early down penalty.  We didnt go for the yardage just ran a draw to play the field position battle.
The next time was 3rd and 10 after two incompletions, King got it to Adams for 8, Glass shoved him out of bounds stopping the drive.
The next one was a 3rd and 7 and King overthrew Pitts.  We converted on 3rd and 2 with a run, later on 3rd and 6 King hit Carlson for 5 on 3rd and 6, set up the 37 yard field goal... A stalled run and a drop got us 3rd and 10, King felt the heat on the blitz and had to dump it to Carlson for 1. The next drive we moved the ball well but ended up in a mid-drive 3rd and 12, King hit Pitts for 15, but after a sack on nd down we were in 3rd and 16, ended up gaining a yard and having to punt. 

After halftime, the drive started with a first play interception from king, next time we got the ball he took a sack on 1st down, on 3rd and 9 King hit Ruiz for 10, later on 3rd and 3 we tried to run it with Rosen, only gained a yard.  Larry Stevens was all over the field stopping us on 3rd down.

3rd and 5 later, Carlson ran for 10, later that drive after a sack we were in 3rd and 15, King overthrew Ruiz.   3rd and 4 later, King was sacked by Stevens for a loss of 6.

4th quarter started with a 3rd and 4, Woods ran it for 4 and converted, a play later we hit the Pitts TD.

3rd and 6 on the next drive, Woods caught a pass for 5, Stevens stopped him short.

3rd and 4 on the next drive, King converted with a 6 yard pass to Ruiz.  later that drive on 3rd and 2 Carlson got stopped a yard short. Last drive of the 4th for us, 3rd and 3 King got sacked for a loss of 7 on a corner blitz, we hit the tying field goal and went to OT.

In OT 3rd and 2 on the first drive, Woods ran for 3.  Later on 3rd and 9, Pitts caught a pass for 4, we had to punt.

The Cobras drove the field on their first drive and won with the Field Goal.

No major concerns, their best player is Benjamin, and we can handle running backs pretty well.  Our run defense has been pretty solid so far this year, and equally, their run defense is one of the worst in the league, meaning I expect a HUGE game from Carlson and Woods.

Can I speak with Princess please.

Princess, I was thinking that the S9 draft class would probably be released soon so I was doing some preliminary figure checking and noticed that Coach Crowder's extension was not noted on our team sheet.  I sent the paperwork into the league on 9/8/16.  With that being said, would you be able to take that into account on our books and see if you come up with $7mm in PR remaining?

We played one heck of a physical game and came out with a big victory.  San Antonio jumped out early, but our guys didn't let that get them down and they continued to battle and fought back and put together an impressive win.  It was a bit of a struggle at times to move the ball, but these are the types of games that will happen from time to time in the season and are the ones you really have to win.  The grind it out type games and our guys did just that.  With that being said, I hope those guys from San Antonio have a speedy recovery, injuries are always a part of the game and I hope none of them are seriously injured.

We are tied atop of the division with Alabama.  However, we will not rest on that.  We will take things one game at a time and make sure we are playing at the highest of levels.

Alright coach, I will let you get back to practice.

Coach Carpenter please.

Coach, our defense is playing great.  I wanted to touch base with you and ask you about Donaldson.  I haven't really seen him on the stat sheet in the first three games.  Do you believe it's something specific or is it more of a strength to our defensive unit?

The Media waits for your thoughts on the game, recent news about your team (if any), and how you grade yourself and your team after the first quarter of the season, who has been the team's MVP, and who needs to step up most going forward?
 
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on January 10, 2017, 04:00:36 PM
Picked up another victory with another all around great game.  Dominated in all phases of the game and scored the ball throwing, running, and special teams.  Can't ask for much more than that. 

You guys ask some tough questions, but as far as grading, I would give ourselves a B+.  We have been playing some great football, but we also realize there is room for improvement, hence the B+ and not an A.  If we can get some things corrected, such as getting better on third down conversions and keeping King off his ass then we will easily earn an A.

The team's MVP...now that is a really tough one.  We've had many guys step up thus far, but I would have to say Charles Bishop.  He is second in the league in sacks from the SS position and has really anchored our defense. As far as who needs to step up going forward, I would say our defense will get even better if we can find ways to get William Donaldson in the backfield sacking the quarterback.  He has less pressure on him this year with the amount of talent we have on the defensive of the ball, but the man sacks quarterbacks and once we get him going our defense will be even scarier.

1. How did you feel about this weeks game?

2. There was a lot of news this week, what stood out to you?

3. How can you be a better GM for this team?

4. What do you think of your opponent's body of work up to this point in the season?
 
5. What do you need to do to win this week?


 
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on January 14, 2017, 04:57:15 PM
1. How did you feel about this weeks game?

-It was  a tough, grind it out game that came down to literally, the very last second and we came out with the victory.  These are the type of games that really tell you what kind of team you have.  It  pushes your guys to the brink and tests their mettle.  Our guys dug down deep and showed the heart to fight back, inch by inch, play by play, second by second to come back and win the game.  A damn good game.  Hats off to GM Cory, he came in at the last minuted to take over that franchise and has that team playing really good football.  Great divisional win that now puts us at the top of the division.

2. There was a lot of news this week, what stood out to you?

-Definitely a lot of news this week, but the biggest to me was GM Powers hiccup over in Tombstone and the loss of Domingo Smith for GM Jon.  I'm sure he will find a way to fix the issue.

3. How can you be a better GM for this team?

-I believe right now we are at a good place, so for me to improve I have to continue to look towards the future while also keeping an eye on this season.  I have to always brainstorm and prepare for the future and find ways to continuously improve this team.

4. What do you think of your opponent's body of work up to this point in the season?

-Alabama is a very good team and always a tough game.  It will be a physical game and GM Pancho and his staff will have his guys ready to go, especially with them coming off of a loss to Atlanta.  They have a lot of talent and we will have to work hard to gameplan to contain Ortega.
 
5. What do you need to do to win this week?

-As I just mentioned, the biggest thing will be to contain Ortega.  He can beat you both through the air and on the ground.  He is a dynamic player that can take over a game.  With that being said, we have a very good pass rush and I believe if we are able to hit him a few times then we will be able to slow him down.  We have to continue to run the ball and control the clock to keep the ball from their offense.

Alright, I will make that change.

Coach, before we get to our gameplan for Alabama, I wanted to talk to you about our coordinators.  I know we spoke in the offseason and you wanted to see how the season was going before you decided if we should renew their contracts or not.  Is 5 games enough for you to make a decision or do you want to continue to let the season progress a little more?

Sounds like a plan.  Okay, on to Alabama.  Obviously Ortega is the x factor, do you think we dial back the blitzing a little bit to try and contain him or keep it where it is to put the pressure on him?

I think we keep it where it is, a lot of his runs come on designed plays, so backing off would only give him more options on those runs.  Lets get after him.

1. Discuss your game

A big, big win against a divisional rival.  Our guys gutted out another close game and once again showed we have the heart of a champion. 

2. Discuss your next opponent

We have GM Dazz and Cleveland.  GM Dazz always has those guys prepared to play, but that won't change our game plan.  We will continue to work on our game, try to improve in the areas we need to and then go out and give it are all on every play.

3. Discuss what your team is not doing well

We're still having issues with our third down efficiency.  So far it hasn't bitten us in the ass, but we have to get better as the season progresses.

4. Discuss the one team you feel you match up worst against, currently

Hmm, if I had to choose I would say Rapid City.  Their tempo is something serious and they have a lot weapons.  We would have to really control the clock to make sure we take them out of their element.

Coach, another great win!  Our guys are showing real heart out there.  We are atop the division and in the driver's seat.

4 Short, 11 Long, and 1 3rd and 5. We converted on all of the short/mediums this time around. Also had one more short that doesnt show in the box score because of a offsides that got us the first down on yardage.

Watching this last week's film they showed that they can go deep on teams, I trust our secondary, but they will try to take some shots deep.  they also have the #1 pass defense, so we'll need to go at their weakness, which is the run defense.  Scoring-wise we are near mirrors... we score 28.7 per game, they score 29 per game.  We give up 17.5 per game, they give up 17.3...  It's going to be a dog fight.

We might want to crank it up a little more even, as long as we trust Storm to carry the load once George starts hitting that 25 carry mark... or we do more of a pure committee and switch them up throughout, instead of waiting for George to call for a breather.
   
 
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on January 17, 2017, 10:20:52 PM
I believe based on last season that we know Storm can handle the load.  Technically we are using a committee approach for the backfield, is there anything more that I need to specify with the lock in to get Storm more carries?

1. What did you think of your game this week?

We came out on the losing end of this one, but it was another hard fought game that showed our heart.  We got down early but our guys battled back to tie the game late.  It stings a little, but we will bounce back.

2. Approaching mid-season, do you believe that you will reach out to any potential free agents about extending their contract?

Yes, we have some roster choices to make.

3. There is a rumor of an upcoming report that names several players as potential PED users, any concern that any of your players could be on the list?

I hope the rumors are not true, but no, I don't believe any of our guys will be on the list.

4. What do you think of your opponent this week, and how do you see your game matching up?

We have Michigan and we are looking to bounce back from this week's loss.  We will prepare as we always have and look to pick up another win.


Well coach, that was a tough loss, but our guys played great once again.  Just barely missed winning that one.

They did well to throw King off of his game, and in the end that hurt us.  We played them close, but that's one I wish we could have back.

He is showing better decision making for sure.  He's cut his INT rate down a lot which has boosted his QB rating.  I would still like to see him be more accurate, and his footwork overall just hasn't come along as fast as we hoped, but I still see him as a future star.

1. Discuss your game this week

A dominant performance all the way around and our defense pitched a shutout.  Great win.

2. Discuss your team's standing at mid-season vs. the expectations you and your owner had at the start of the season.

Mr. King expected us to compete for a playoff spot and we are currently exceeding that goal.  We sit atop of our division and control our own destiny.  If we continue to play the way we have been then we shall find ourselves in the playoff mix the rest of the way.

3. Discuss the recent suspensions, Steven Crawford's potential retirement, and other PED related stories from the past week.

Definitely a lot of suspensions going around, whether league impose or team imposed.  It is a dynamic and fluid situation that will no doubt continued to be monitored by everyone.  I haven't really followed Crawford's career, but at this point I don't see GM Jon bringing him back so if he retires, at least he will continued to get paid.

4. Discuss your realistic goals for the last half of the season.

I expect us to continue on the same path and compete for the Impact Bowl.

5. Talk a little bit about your opponent this week, and how you feel you match up.

We have Las Vegas this upcoming week at their place.  They are definitely a tough match-up with having the top scoring offense and the #2 scoring defense.  However, we have a stout defense and it will be a great game all the way around.  The fans will definitely get their money's worth.


---

Great win this week coach, regardless of the talent level of our opponent, a shutout is always something to feel good about.

Post by: GM Justin on January 26, 2017, 06:29:05 PM

Coach, I will go ahead and let you know that we will be without John Fredrickson for a game.  With that being said, I obviously have to fill the LB spot that he will vacate.  I was thinking of possibly moving Rodrigo Goldstein to the LB position, I know he's undersized for the position, but it's only for a game and he knows our defense.  I'm thinking of that instead of signing someone who isn't familiar with our system.  Do you think we could get by for a game or should I sign someone?

Hey Rodrigo, I know your stuck on the depth chart so I'm going to give you a chance to get on the field this week. I know that technically you are undersized, but we are going to need you to step up and play linebacker this week. We will get you trained this week and get you caught up to speed as much as possible. You've been here long enough since the trade to understand what we do defensively so I feel confident that you can step up for us this week and fill in. You up.to the challenge?

Gentlemen,  I have called everyone in to let you know that John Fredrickson has been suspended for one game due to conduct detrimental to the team.  I will not go into detail as to what that conduct was, if John wants you guys to know that is on him.  However, my point of this meeting is to one, let you guys know about the suspension in hopes that you will uplift your teammate in his time of need, and two to let you guys know there are consequences that you will face if you put yourself above the team in a way that it negatively effects the team.  It's as simple as that.  We are having a great season so let's go out here an finish the second half of the season just as strong as we started.

Hail The Kings!

1. What did you think of this weeks game?  What went right, what went wrong?

It was a tough game that we ended up losing.  We had the lead in the fourth quarter, but gave it away.  The game was a defensive one like we thought it would be.  We didn't turn the ball over and were able to run the ball fairly well.  However, we are still killing ourselves with our third down conversions.  We have simply got to convert more third downs.

2. What did you think of the Turpin Report, what stood out to you the most?

It's detailed and has some intriguing material.  Obviously what stood out most were the names in the report that have been associated with PEDs.

3. What consequences do you believe should come from the Turpin Report?

From a league standpoint, I find it hard that they will be able to really suspend players if they don't test positive.  However, I believe the teams have the ability to punish players and should.

4. Talk us through this coming week...

We have to get prepared for Miami.  Their record doesn't paint a pretty picture, but they are a tough team and have been competitive.  We have to prepare for this game just like any other game and there are some things we really need to focus on to improve such as our third down production.  If we are going to get into the playoffs and make a run at the Impact Bowl, we have got to move the ball downfield with first downs, especially in clutch situations.

Coach, tough game this week against Vegas.  Couldn't really get much going on offense.

Yeah, I've been thinking about our offense a lot lately.  As you said, our defense is top notch, but I think our offense sputters at times..or at least isn't as dynamic as it can be.  Only thing I can think of is to possibly going more shotgun and airing it out some more.

Post by: GM Justin on February 01, 2017, 01:50:14 PM
Mr. Winstead,

Obviously, there is a lot going on with the Turpin report and what not.  However, the latest news piece that came out about the league testing everyone who was listed in the report has stricken a nerve with me.  While I believe in the testing, I also believe in the proper way of doing things and if the league tests all of these players then it will violate the randomness of the drug testing policy.  Now I'm sure you are for more knowledgeable  about the drug testing policy, but I have the concern that it is no longer random and it would violate the policy.  Again, I believe in the testing, but I also believe the players deserve to be treated as the CBA affords them.  Does the players association have an issue with this as well?  If so, is there anything that can be done on behalf of the players?

I appreciate your concern for the players, it does mean very much to all of us at the HIFLPA. We have been in contact with the league, and have come to an agreement that will see the players named in the report tested.  The players named in the Turpin Report will meet with the league, submit a urine sample, and be interviewed by the League's investigation team with the compromise that players will not be retroactively punished for transgressions of seasons passed.

1. What was the key to victory this week?

Defense.  It was a close, hard fought game, and our defense made the difference.  They have been playing lights out all year and this game was no different.  Our offense did enough to get enough points on the board and our defense did their part to limit the points.

2. There are 6 games remaining this season, despite the standings, where do you feel your team stands right now?

I feel we are a playoff team and a team that can compete for the Impact Bowl.  We have done a great job of winning some very close games this season and I believe those experiences will serve us as the season progresses.

3. What stood out to you in the news this week?

GM Franchise getting cold cocked.

4. How important is this weeks game, and what do you want to see when you look at the stat sheet after the game?

Every game is important in HIFL and this week is no different.  It's a divisional game so it has that much more importance as we lookk to extend our lead in the division and try to move ourselves closer to the playoffs.

5. How safe do you feel currently when it comes to job security?

Nobody is truly safe until you deliver a championship, however as this is our third season in existence I believe we have come along way and have created a foundation that will allow us to be successful for seasons to come.  We have improved each season and we have already tied our win total from last season.  We have a great mixture of young talent and experience veterans.  I am excited about the state of Kings football.


Coach,

Closer game than I would have liked, but our guys fought and pulled out the victory once again.

Agreed, but Barkley has been on a tear of his own lately. Should be a good match up. I know we blitz heavily but with Zeke out and Carr continuously hurt do you think turning up the blitz a little more could really disrupt the passing game and help limit Hodge?

1. What happened out there this week?

Turnovers.  We dominated in nearly every facet of the game, but turnovers ended up derailing our efforts.

2. Which statement is more true?  We are better than our record or We have over achieved?

We are better than our record.  We lost a couple of very close games that we could have and should have won and this past week as well with the turnovers.  Our defense is top flight and we could easily be at 10-1.

3. What stood out to you in the news this week?

All of this PED stuff is definitely interesting reading material.  It will be interesting to see what happens.

4. Speak about anything else you would like to, as it relates to the league...

I'm looking forward to redeeming ourselves this week.


Well coach, definitely not the way we planned for that one to go.  Definitely a game we should have won.

Post by: GM Justin on February 08, 2017, 10:48:21 AM

Defensively they are strong in the turnover game, but weak when it comes to stopping anyone. They are 12th vs the run and have given up some big plays and games.  I think Carlson and Woods can have a field day.

I agree with you there.  Maybe also look for a solid back up for King... I think back up QBs are going to start rising in value, so getting one in the draft might be more cost effective.

1. (if you lost, or tied): What happened out there this week?

Once again, we dominated the game and once again we were derailed by turnovers.

2. As we enter the final quarter of the season what is the biggest threat to success for your team?

Ourselves.  We have to keep control of the ball and stop turning it over.  If we can do that we should be fine.

3. What stood out to you in the news this week?

It's unfortunate that John Spurgeon is considering retiring all because GM Kirk is on some sort of self-righteous witch hunt.

4. Speak about anything else you would like to, as it relates to the league...

Focused on making the playoffs.

I had plenty to say in the locker room after the game.  Sorry I pulled Carmazzi without your approval, but he was the direct cause of this loss and I felt like Bain gave us a better shot to come back, and he almost had it pulled off.

No need to apologize.  That's why I pay you to be the coach, to make those type of in-game decisions.  We've been slipping lately and mostly due to turnovers...do you think its time to sit King and go with Bain as the starter?

Bain isn't going to win games, but I see him as a decent manager who can complete some throws for us when we aren't pounding the rock. King is a thrower, he is looking to make plays and right now he's just not there.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Justin on February 10, 2017, 01:26:10 PM
Understood, but what's your honest opinion?  Do we stick with King or go with Bain?  We have slipped to second in the division and our remaining schedule is Bama, NJ, RC and Orlando...which is a tough stretch of games.

I would honestly feel better finding a new defensive coordinator, Amos is not ideal.  I have been responsible for our defenses progressions, so I would like to find someone new, and younger, to work as a protege.

I am split on Cameron, I like him but our offense isn't at peak performance and we need to do whatever we can to make sure King improves.

Hey King. I wanted to talk to you about last week's game. I know it was tough getting benched but coach did what he thought best for the team at the time. I understand you were frustrated but you have to keep your composure on the sidelines when something like that happens. I hope you use it as a learning lesson. Also, after talking with coach we are going to give Bain the start this week. We have been struggling of late and are trying to find a way to get a spark and turn things around.

No, this is not permanent. You are the franchise quarterback but right now we need to figure out a way to turn things around. Trust me, these decisions aren't easy but at the end of the day we are trying to do what's best for the team and at this juncture in the season we feel giving Bain the start for at least this game is what's best. But again, it's not permanent.

Post by: KyddRiggs on March 01, 2017, 01:32:09 PM
When you have an top-end quarterback, there's only one answer offensively: spread it out. Build around the superstar and put as many points on the board as possible.

Defensively, it's all about pass rush, well-timed blitzes and good cover corners. A 4-3 system based on the roster seems appropriate, with a little Cover 2.

Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: SgtJosh on March 01, 2017, 05:36:51 PM
First pick I'm looking at a star receiver. A quarterback like a soldier is only as good as their weapon on the field. I'd look for a reciever who can create their own openings and help drive the ball down field.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS

You can get to know the coaching staff during the draft and get to know them, I will have your assistant bring you up to speed with the team as soon as possible.

Hello GM Riggs, My name is Princess Twang, your Secretary.  I am the one you can ask most general questions and I also connect you to, or call in the people you want to speak to on day-to-day operations.

Attached is information about our team that is up to date as of our first pick in the draft.  We will need to sign our first round pick Melvin Pugh to a contract which you can do by contacting his agent.

We will continue to draft for you the rest of this draft, but you will be able to talk to the players after they are signed to get a feel for them.  We have 2 second round picks, a 3rd, 5th, and 6th left in the draft and we will not be trading away any of our future picks at this time so you will have a full arsenal of picks going into next season.

As for the sheet you can download here, "Yellow" indicates a player's contract is fully guaranteed, blue simply is to highlight that a player is on their final year under contract.

Rex Evans, I was a general manager in this league a few years ago and in a different sport before that. I've been paying attention to the off season the past couple of days, and I noticed that beyond your draft picks being made there hasn't been a lot of action.

I'm sorry that you had to deal with a situation like this, but I'm happy to get the opportunity to possibly step back into the league. When I left during the middle of season six, I was heartbroken to be stepping away but I had some personal issues to attend to. Now that those are in the past, I'm ready and able to tackle everything you and your organization want and need.

I'd be happy to answer any questions that you might have, and I'm very thankful for you to have even opened the door to the possibility of me becoming a Music City King.

Evening, Ms. Twang. It's a pleasure to meet you and I look forward to working with you this season and beyond. Before I start making calls, is there anything I need to know about the team and where we stand besides what's available on the off season sheet I already found on the desk?

Welcome to the team Mr. Evans, you can absolutely get to work on anything you see fit.  One thing you are going to want to be aware of is our Quarterback situation.

We drafted King Carmazzi #2 overall a couple of seasons ago, and since then it appears that he may not be the answer.  He added years to his deal to remove the full guarantee from his contract and while he may be a very capable back up, I don't believe he is going to be too happy about it.  We may want to consider amnestying him before the start of Unrestricted Free Agency. 

We traded for Trevor Jose after the Impact Bowl.  He is a year removed from being named MVP with a record setting season with no interceptions and a single season record for passing touchdowns, and last season he was just as good but not "perfect" which is to be expected.  We landed him but he is on the final year of his contract and at 33 years old probably only has a few years left, so just things to think about.  We are definitely a contender due to Jose and George Carlson, our two veteran workers.  We also have a clear cut #1 WR in Erik Pitts who has been very talented since being drafted as well.  Our defense has been molded by our head coach to be one of the more consistently tough units in the league, we have prided ourselves on defense while dealing with the struggles of our former starter King Carmazzi at QB.

There are no other morale issues to be concerned with currently.

We do need to sign our draft picks Melvin Pugh, Luke Morris, and Franklin Sanderson.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask... oh and you can call me Princess, no need for the Mrs. Twang business. *smiles*

Alright, Princess. Thank you for all the information. I'm going to look into our quarterback situation as soon as I get a chance, but first it's time to get our draftees signed. Get Drew Leventhal on the line, please.

---

Drew, it's GM Evans. Fantastic to speak to you again, it's been a few years. I hope all is well. I'd like to speak about getting Melvin signed, I'm sorry that my predecessor dropped the ball. I'm thinking a 4-year deal worth 6.75 & 1.75MM in PR. How does that sound?

Evening Deion, it's GM Evans, been a long time. I've stepped in to take over the position for the Music City Kings, and I'm calling to secure Luke Morris's spot on the team. I'm thinking 3 years for 5 & 750k PR, how does that sound to you?

James, it's GM Evans, how've you've been my man? I've taken the reigns at Music City, and I'm calling to get Franklin Sanderson officially in his King's jersey. I was thinking 3 years at 4.5 with 750k PR. What say you?

Awesome, thank you Princess. I'd like to start by talking with Coach Crowder then.

Morning, Coach Crowder. Pleasure to meet you, I look forward to working with you this season. Just wondering if you can give me a rundown on the team and your coaching strategy so that I know we're on the same page, then I wanted to talk to you about our Quarterback situation.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: Talon on March 08, 2017, 02:49:55 PM
(http://espnsportssims.net/HIFL/var/albums/Coaches/Bill Crowder.jpg)

(http://espnsportssims.net/HIFL/var/albums/Logos/mc1.png)


Hello GM Evans, I've been with the team since it was formed three seasons ago.  I came here from Alabama where I ran their defense.  I pride myself on a Suffocating defense, hard nosed players, and a ground game that will make defensive coordinators piss their pants.

Our run game has been nearly unstoppable over the past three years with George Carlson leading the charge, we traded away Storm Woods, his original heir apparent, to land Trevor Jose to solve our QB problems and really make a push for the title. George is probably in his final year or two in the league but that is why we took Melvin Pugh to learn the system behind one of the best.

Now that GM Justin is gone, I would prefer to stick with my roots, a solid pro-style offense that is built more around the I-Formation and Pro-set looks that put our run game in the best situation to succeed on early downs before moving to the shotgun for passing situations on 3rd and long and other similar times.   Defensively my attacking 3-4 defense has been successful, and we've added pieces to the team to re-enforce our talents there.

We have a solid offensive line, but could use an upgrade at center and possibly at guard over Timothy Sherry who has shown some decline over the past couple of years.  We once had one of the premier OT's in the league in Noah Rose but GM Justin managed to drive him to demanding a trade to Atlanta last year.

We have re-signed our premier WR Erik Pitts, but would definitely benefit from adding a solid #2 who has the speed to play in the slot when we do go shotgun. 

On defense Barkley and Maggard are a very solid tandem of Corners, but in the nicle we are currently relying on two below average options in Alfonzo McCormick and James Cochran.

Our strong safety Charles Bishop was in contention for Defensive Player of the Year for most of the year so we are solid there.  Defensive line isn't the flashiest, but William Donaldson is a player I expect a bounce back break-out year from.  And our linebackers are fierce with Defensive captain Chris Blevins mentoring our younger kids like Hiro Nakamura who was a steal in last years draft and Billy Zepeda.  We will need to add one more linebacker, preferrably a pass rushing 3-4 OLB type or even a defensive end who we can convert to OLB, to really cap off the defense, and Vincent Wright our starting FS is a fringe player who could do well, but could also be an upgradable position for us.

We need to add a kicker as well, but I don't really get to bunched up on names in the special teams game.
   
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: Tritch on March 08, 2017, 03:07:24 PM
Wow, thank you for all of that information, this is definitely going to come in handy. Over last season I assume GM Justin had you guys go on some scouting trips, is there any way you still have the information that you came up with? Hearing some recommendations from you for where to look could go a long way as I'm flying kind of blind right now.

I was going to look at a Wide Receiver, a Strong Safety and a Linebacker as our top 3 leading into UFA. Do you agree with that assessment?

(http://espnsportssims.net/HIFL/var/albums/Logos/mc1.png)


I'd probably say Linebacker, Wide Receiver, then a Free Safety, but finding a strong safety to learn behind Bishop might not be bad either.

I'll see what I can do as far as any old scouting information we have.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: Tritch on March 08, 2017, 03:36:57 PM
Thank you for sending all of that information, that should be a big help. Now let's move onto the Quarterback situation. Princess filled me in, and I'm very happy that we were able to secure Jose. She said our best bet might be to utilize the amnesty clause on his contract, which I am inclined to agree with. What is your opinion of the situation?

(http://espnsportssims.net/HIFL/var/albums/Logos/mc1.png)


On "His" contract?  Are you referring to Jose or Carmazzi?

King Carmazzi would benefit from a fresh start somewhere else I believe.  I don't think he fits what I want to do here nor does he have the desire to try to make it work here anymore.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: Tritch on March 08, 2017, 03:49:03 PM
I meant Carmazzi. Good thing we're just talking in my office and not signing anything in the League Office, that could've been detrimental. Thank you for the information and your opinion coach, I'll contact you again if I need anything else.

Princess, can you call Coaches Hollingsworth, Carpenter and Jackman into my office? I'd just like to introduce myself so we can start building a relationship, and ask them if they need anything from me before we move onto what's next.

Hey guys, I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Rex, AKA GM Evans. I just wanted to open the chain of dialogue so that you guys know who I am and that if you ever need anything I'm here and my door is always figuratively open. I'm looking forward to working with you guys this season.

Hey boss, the name is Cam, Cameron Hollingsworth.  I've been with the team since day one so I am very familiar with what Coach Crowder likes to do with the offense, we mesh well so I'm looking forward to working with you this year and hopefully impressing enough to earn a new deal after the season.


(http://espnsportssims.net/HIFL/var/albums/Coaches/Benny Campbell.jpg)

(http://espnsportssims.net/HIFL/var/albums/Logos/mc1.png)

Hello Mr Evans, I'm Benny Campbell, I've coached for most of my life along with my dad Michael. We built Florida State into a powerhouse until we left to join the HIFL, I just left Lincoln in the off-season to take the DC job here for a year.  I am flexible in my defensive schemes, and will do my best to satisfy what you're looking for in a defense.


(http://espnsportssims.net/HIFL/var/albums/Coaches/Brad Rogers.jpg)

(http://espnsportssims.net/HIFL/var/albums/Logos/mc1.png)

Hey man, Brad Rogers, your assistant coach here.  I was brought in initially this off-season to help with developing or "fixing" King Carmazzi, but I can do a lot more than just that.  I'm a couple years removed from being the head coach at Oregon where I ran a very explosive spread offense so speed is my game.  I work well with young QBs and wide receivers as well as TE's and RBs when it comes to their speed and agility.  I was the Offensive Coordinator at Kansas City for the past two years but now here I am ready to work.


Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: Tritch on March 08, 2017, 04:52:02 PM
Pleasure to meet you guys, I definitely looking forward to working closely with each of you. Coach Rogers, thanks for the information. We likely won't have Carmazzi around once the pre-season starts, so we might sit down again before lock in to discuss more in-depth what you can do for the team. But I like what I'm hearing about your work with speed. We'll talk again shortly, thanks Coaches.

Post by: Tritch on March 08, 2017, 05:10:34 PM
Thank you, but unfortunately I don't think it's good news that I'm calling you in here. I've been filled in on the situation at Quarterback, and I understand it can be frustrating to go from franchise quarterback to riding the bench. A deal was made before I took over the reigns to bring Trevor Jose onto the team, and we'll be moving forward with him as our starting QB this season.

I know this isn't the news you wanted to hear, but I wanted you to hear it from me. With Trevor as our starter and the gameplan that Coach Crowder is looking to employ this year, we're going to be letting you go from the team. I want to do what's best both for this organization and for your future, and I believe that you will benefit from a fresh start on a team with a gameplan more suited to your abilities.

I wish you the best of luck in the future.

---

Princess, can you get Mike Moneymaker on the line.

---

Mike, it's GM Evans with the Music City Kings, a pleasure to be speaking with you again after so long but unfortunately the reason I'm calling isn't good news. After being appraised of the situation at quarterback, we've decided it would be best to utilize our Amnesty Clause on King Carmazzi. I don't like to have to use the clause, especially on such a young kid, but it is the best thing for this franchise and for his future in my opinion.

Hey Coach. I took care of our quarterback situation, and I believe I've made some moves on our offensive line that should help. Do you think Kyle Phillips and Robert Griffin are good additions to address the issues we spoke about earlier? Obviously we won't know much until after training camp, but just curious on your initial impression.

Perfect, that was my intention. Thanks for stopping up again. We'll speak again come UFA, I plan on bringing some guys here to show us off and try to get them signed.

Princess, I don't want anyone to feel left out, so let's bring in Kyle Phillips and Robert Griffin.

Welcome to Music City, guys. Just wanted to introduce myself and make sure you both feel welcome. How are you settling into Nashville?

It's disappointing to be in a new city, in all honesty.  I thought by being the best at QB in the league that I'd finish up my career in New Jersey, but now that I am here you're going to get my best and I'm going to do all I can to win a ring because I want to win another Impact Bowl before I retire.
       
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: Tritch on March 09, 2017, 05:26:05 PM
I completely understand that disappointment. I had to bounce around between companies before I hung up my boots in the ring, and I wasn't a fan of that. We are all very happy to have you here in Music City though and I'd like to do whatever I can to make you feel welcome. With you as our starting quarterback, I know we can bring Nashville an Impact Bowl Championship, and get you at least one more ring before you retire.

That's great to hear. As I'm sure you're already aware, we drafted Melvin Pugh to play behind you and we're certainly hoping you can help him come into his own so he can take over the reigns when you decide to hang up your jersey. From the sound of it, doesn't seem like you're going to have any problem with that.

I'm planning on bringing a few free agents in for some visits one UFA opens up, Princess. I'm assuming the entire coaching staff will be present for meeting them and the tour, but I was hoping that we could also get the six guys I plan on naming captain this season here as well. Do you think you could float the idea past them, and if anyone has anything to say about it you can send them in? Here's the list:

Trevor Jose
George Carlson
Erik Pitts
Shane Barkley
Charles Bishop
Chris Blevins

Coach, you mentioned earlier that having a defensive end switch to OLB might be enough to cap off our linebacker corps. If we're able to secure the UFA player I'm interested in, do you think either Donaldson or Schmitt would be willing and able to make the change, and be effective in the position if they did?
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: Tritch on March 10, 2017, 07:52:21 PM

Post by: Tritch on March 10, 2017, 09:44:15 PM
Okay that'll work. In our deal, we agreed that MTV would reserve the right to host pre-game and post-game events at the stadium. While this isn't technically speaking a pre- or post-game event, I was wondering if they'd be interested and willing to send a celebrity representative for some of our UFA in-stadium visits. I think it'd go a long way towards selling our team, and obviously it benefits MTV, as our partner, for us to have the best team possible. And if they are interested and willing, I'd like to know who they'll be sending.

My name is GM Rebel and as of a few minutes ago, I'm currently without a job. I'd like the opportunity to run with things here in Music City. While I don't look back negatively on my time in Atlanta, the opportunity to beat them twice a season is certainly enticing.

Just a few questions before I make you the man here...

1. What do you think is our strength and weakness on this roster?

2. Do you plan on rebuilding or improving what we have?

3. What type of contract are you looking for:
a. year to year with varying expectation
b. 3 years, showing improvement each year with a goal of playoffs in 3 seasons
c. 4 year deal, playoffs expected in each of the last 3 seasons

Each will have their own perks and risks...
a. you are liable to be fired if you piss me off, but expectations will be varied on your performance and the teams outlook, similar to what most GMs have had up until now. Your ability to risk assets will be less likely to be approved or allowed.

b. you will be expected to rebuild the team but we need to see progress, year 1 is of no consequence, but year 2 needs improvement and year 3 is playoffs or you are likely fired..

c. You will only be fired if you make a MAJOR mistake or two or fail to make the playoffs in the seasons mentioned, but you are also more liekly to be granted permission to make risks and big moves to improve the teams chances.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Rebelicious on July 20, 2017, 11:18:18 PM
1. What do you think is our strength and weakness on this roster?

"The passing game is quite a strength at the moment: Trevor Jose is really flinging it around out there. You could see a noticeable drop-off when Trevor was in the game as opposed to when he wasn't. We saw that firsthand in week one where he put a hurting on the Warriors. I think defensively, this team has the potential to be tops in the league. I scouted Hiro Nakamura before the draft and have really enjoyed watching him come in to his own."

"The running game is a weakness at the moment. If hired here, one of my priorities would be to find a way to get those guys going."

2. Do you plan on rebuilding or improving what we have?

"I think there's the potential for this team to win some games. I don't foresee a rebuild."

3. What type of contract are you looking for:
a. year to year with varying expectation
b. 3 years, showing improvement each year with a goal of playoffs in 3 seasons
c. 4 year deal, playoffs expected in each of the last 3 seasons"

"I'm here for the long-haul, Mr. King. I'd had every intention of sticking with Atlanta, even if a rebuild was necessary and I was going to have to start from scratch. Loyalty is important to me - so, I'd be seeking a 4-year deal (c)."

I'll tell you what GM Rebel...  I'll give you the 4 year deal, starting after this season, consider this an "interim" year in terms of expectations, your playoff expectation will begin the season after next... so do what you need to do to put this team in position to return to glory...  Good luck.

I know we're in the middle of the season and it's hard to make too many adjustments - but do you see anything immediately that we can shift around a little to become a little more dynamic?

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

"I thought we played pretty well defensively. Holding Alabama to a 332 total yards isn't anything to shake a stick at - and put us in a position to win. The penalties, turnovers and our struggles running the football essentially did us in. The good news is - all those things can be fixed. Those are instances where we're shooting ourselves in the foot and at the end of the day: we can correct those issues."

2. Give us an evaluation of the first quarter of the season for your team, who has stood out both good and bad?

"Seeing as I've only been here a week - I can't answer that question."

3. With where you sit in the standings, do you feel it is a true reflection of your team? Where do you feel you should stand, and what do you need to do to achieve that by the end of the season?

"It's been a rocky start in Music City this season. They've had GM's come and go all offseason long and I think the rocky start is attributed to the turnover. I hope that we've stabilized some of that and can begin to right this ship. There are a lot of solid pieces on this team - it's not that the cupboard was bare. I'm honestly pretty excited for the future of this franchise."

4. What has been the biggest challenge for your team so far this season, and who would you say was your teams MVP?

"We've got to be able to run the ball more efficiently. The MVP has to be Trevor Jose. He's the key for our offense."

5. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the key to victory?

"Orlando is coming to town. Defense and ball control will be the name of the game."

"There's a lot of football left, coach. I've been thinking about making a shake-up in the running back depth chart. What do you think about increasing Pugh's carries a bit? While Trevor and this WR crew has been reeeeally good this season, I don't think we can keep counting on Trevor, at 33, to continue at this clip. We need to get him some help. What do you think about that?"

WEEK 5

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

"Really great job all around. I'm obviously extremely happy to gain that first victory as general manager of Music City under my belt. Offensively, I thought we moved the ball well - Trevor Jose continues to be the catalyst for this team. We won the time of possession, turnover battle, and cut our penalties from the previous weeks. I appreciate coach Crowder's attention to detail and making sure we're a disciplined football team."

"The only negative from the week is giving up the kickoff return. But we're moving in the right direction."

2. What did you pick up form the news this week?  Anything concerning, or interesting?

"The league is in full HIFL mode. Anything can happen on any day, and I think we're seeing some of the fall out from that. It seems taboo to say but it'll be interesting to see what happens."

3. How do you evaluate your coaching staff, so far this year?

"I don't have enough time to tell you how thankful I am to have inherited this staff. They've really held things together in the absence of front office stability and they were rewarded with a big win this week. Really excited to see how they continue to push this football team to the next level."

4. What do you expect the Commissioner to talk about this week when he makes his highly anticipated announcement?

"I honestly have no idea what's next for the HIFL. It's such a massive operation now- but the commissioner always has a few tricks up his sleeve and trying to figure out the next step is always a challenge."

5. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the key to victory?

"DC is a tough match-up for anybody. They've got an explosive offense and a high-powered pass rush. So, we're going have to slow down their DL and find a way to stop the pass. Our guys are up for the task."

  It is always tough to match up with DC, but between your history of upsetting them in Atlanta, and our stable of running backs against their weakened defensive line... I think we have all the tools in place to put them in the loss column this week.

"It's going to be hard to slow down our pass offense with the way Trevor is slinging it but do you think we should increase our running percentage this week to try and wear them down?"

  I'd rather run on that defensive front than try to lean heavily on the pass when Glass and Juan Kirk are there, I wouldn't skew it too much, but a little more rushing attack could be the right answer.
Title: Re: TEAM: MUSIC CITY KINGS
Post by: GM Rebelicious on August 11, 2017, 11:55:37 AM
"You got it."

"Also, I'd like to ramp up the pressure. I've always thought the key to slowing down DC is getting after their QB. I know they have a pretty stout OL at the moment... but there seems to be some cohesion issues. I think we can really rush at their RT position and maybe try to take advantage of a guy who may not necessarily be as motivated. What do you think?"

WEEK 6

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

"There was certainly a lot that went right for us this week. While the East remains wide open, any time that you can notch a victory over the D.C., it's a good week. GM Jon has built quite the machine there and we're thankful to have had an opportunity to get back to 3-3 and in the thick of the playoff hunt."

"Our defense played another incredible game. We forced 4 turnovers, held them under 300 total yards, 6 sacks, and a safety. That's always a recipe for a victory."

"I'm thrilled with our progress this season but can't let our guard down. Have to keep getting better each day."

2. Talk about a couple of the topics that stood out to you in the news this week.

"My thoughts go out to Crawford after his torn ACL. Music City wishes him a speedy recovery."

3. What did you make of the announcement of the HIFL Minor League, do you believe it is a positive addition?

"It seems like a good idea. We'll have to see how it shakes out."

4. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the key to victory?

"A reeling Dragons team is still a dangerous Dragon team. We'll have to continue to put pressure on their QB and ride our defense."

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

"We mixed up some things this week and the result was overwhelmingly positive."

"The passing game - which was a vintage Trevor Jose masterpiece - really opened things up for us on the ground. I thought our receivers across the board were fantastic. This whole offense has been selfless all season long and it's great to see them have some success."

"Defensively, six sacks is an impressive feat. Holding Ezekiel to 77 yards is a victory. I've always been a huge Ezekiel Elliott fan and we really kept him in check."

2. Give us an evaluation of the first half of the season for your team, who has stood out both good and bad?

"Obviously, Trevor has been a standout for us. The receiving group as a whole has been a positive. Shane Barkley has been lights out in the secondary."

"I'd like to see more from Luke Morris and the running game."

3. With where you sit in the standings, how do you feel about your chances of meeting your owners expectations and how do you grade your performance as GM?

"Well, I'd like to sit here and tell you I'm safe. I don't care if I've only been with the Kings for a few weeks, I don't want to feel comfortable. I want us to continue to improve each week and get better. I'm going to operate as if I'm always on the hot seat. I'll give myself a D for the season."

4. Who is your league-wide Mid-season MVP?  Who has been the most surprising under performer?

"It's got to be Mariota. He's been lights-out. Under performer would have to be the entire Atlanta organization."

5. Which of your division rivals has surprised you the most? How and Why?

"Alabama. They've come out a lot stronger than I expected and just added some really good pieces."

6. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the key to victory?

"Lincoln has a strong running game - going to have to shut that down and make Bloom beat us. When we have the ball, we're going to continue to put our best players in the position to have the ball in their hands."

We have dabbled in some spread offense in the past, so we could manage it if that is what you want to do.  Trevor Jose is definitely a QB who is best when throwing the ball and keeping teams off their game with his great passing.

WEEK 9

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?


"I'm not sure anything went wrong this week, if we're being honest. A fantastic performance from all facets of the game."

"We made the decision a few weeks ago to make an effort to get the ball in the hands of Trevor Jose as often as possible. We're really excited with what he's been able to accomplish in tandem with our receivers and offensive line. It's reenergized this team and breathed in some new life."

"Defensively, we can't argue with 14 sacks. Great effort from our guys. They made life miserable for Peter Carlton."

2. With this being the final week before the trade deadline, do you see your team making any moves?

"We're always open to making moves that we believe will make our team better. But we won't be actively pursuing any trades."

3. What is your take on the new debate that the rules allowing teams to retain salary in trades has gone too far?

"The rules are the rules until they aren't any more. If there is a rule in the HIFL rulebook that might help us take advantage of an opportunity to make our team better - then we'll use it."

4. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the key to victory?

"Cleveland has a high powered passing attack. We're going to need to step up our pass defense and send our front-7 loose like we did last week."

It makes sense.  He's a veteran on an expiring deal at QB where there aren't many elite talents..  He's also not interested in re-signing in the off-season from what I've heard, so if we could find a suitor for his talents at the deadline, I think it would be worth the assets he would undoubtedly command.

BUT if you would rather go for a wild-card or even division crown and try to upset our way to a championship, then obviously moving him would be counter productive..

Personally, I think that if we can get a good haul for him, its worth it.  This season wasn't really expected to be a big competing year once GM Evans disappeared I don't think, so I don't think we'd get a big nasty backlash if we moved him.

I am not requesting a trade, but I would not be against one to a team contending for a title. 

I am undecided on if I am playing beyond this season or not, so I am just wanting to make the playoffs and try to win the championship.  We're playing well here right now, so I am not going to request an exit and ruin any trade value I might give you here.

WEEK 10

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

"Well, we just got an old fashioned rear kicking. Hats off to Cleveland for putting together a great gameplan and operating. I'm proud of our guys for their effort and unfortunately, we came up short."

"Offensively, we continued to move the ball in the air but a lack of a running game has hurt us."

2. What lead to your actions (or lack of actions) at the trade deadline?

"We're kind of in no-mans land at the moment. We're still not out of the playoff hunt so we didn't want to make a move to upset the chemistry we've put together."

3. Talk about at least two stories from this weeks news... what stood out or interested you?

"We agree with Drew, we believe Hiro is a heck of a talent. And I'm happy for Dak - he's bounced around quite a bit and I think he's got a place in this league."

4. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the key to victory?

"What's there to say? Rapid City is an almost unstoppable force. We're going to get a little creative in trying to slow them down."

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

"Well, we played the last team in the league down to the last possible second. This team is on the cusp of something exciting... I've said publicly said week-in-and-week-out that our running game had to improve. I believed this week our best bet was to put the ball in Trevor Jose's hands and we were right there at the end."

2. How do you feel about your chances of making the playoffs at this juncture of the season?

"It's a long shot but we're not out of just yet."

3. Name a player that isn't on your team that you believe is underrated, and explain.

"I believe Carlos Gallaraga from the Warriors' hasn't ever gone the respect he's deserved. He was the undisputed leader of Atlanta's defense during my time there."

4. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the key to victory?

"Lincoln's offense is excellent. But I think we can get to the QB and speed the game up for him."

Trevor Jose is definitely a QB who is best when throwing the ball and keeping teams off their game with his great passing.

We both agree that he's our best playmaker and we've got to put the ball in his hands. The strategy seemed to work as we hung with the premier team in the HIFL until the very end, did we not?"

Hey shit bag, I wasn't arguing that we did fine airing it out, I'm just saying you alienated our running backs and we still lost the damn football game.

You don't think that on a short yardage situation in the final minutes of the game running the ball could have eaten the clock a bit or maybe stopped them from sitting back in coverage and picking off the pass to end the game?

I don't know, maybe 95/5 if you want to be extreme,   Or some run plays on 3rd and short or near the goal line ...

Either way its done now.  You've pissed off the entire RB Corps, but you're not in the business of making everyone happy, so I guess it's just going to fester and turn into a very toxic locker room.   

I'm going to get to practice. Send me the strategy when you're ready.

WEEK 12

1. What did you make of this weeks game for your team?

"Lincoln jumped out to a big lead and we couldn't recover. The passing game continued to be a strength for us and I was happy to see a spark from the running game. Defensively, our game plan has been to get after the QB and we did that. Big game from William Donaldson - three sacks is impressive in any outing.

2. 3/4 of the way through the season now, do you think you've done a good job as general manager?

"No."

3. What is your take on the situation with George Carlson and his suspension, and subsequent lawsuit?

"Here are the facts: a guy was upset with our gameplan and was within every right to request a trade. However, we've got to do what's best for our team as well - and releasing Mr. Carlson wasn't in the best interest of Music City. Instead of accepting that, Mr. Carlson decided it best that he'd throw his team under the bus and informed me that if we tried to play him, that he'd "lateral the back in to the end zone so quick." He continued to disagree with my insistence that we wouldn't release him outright and stormed out of my office."

"Could we have handled things differently? Possibly. However, my job is to put Music City in the best position to win. Releasing him didn't make us better. However, neither did his insistence that he'd throw his teammates under the bus."

"If there was some kind of instance where I didn't pay him a bonus or left him off the active roster inadvertently, I'd have gladly grant his request for a trade. But at some point, in my role as GM, I've got to have to be able to put my foot down when a guy wants to break his contractual obligation to this team because of a slight disagreement in play style for ONE week."

4. Four games remain on your schedule, how do you prepare your team for the stretch run?

"At this point, we've got to remain focused on football and get past my mistakes."

5. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the key to victory?

"As always - the passing game and defense."

"I will not be taking any more questions regarding George Carlson. Any other questions?"

3. We un-suspend Mr. Carlson and choose not to play him.

Not in particular, but there is always the option of playing "balanced" instead of mostly starters, and giving all of our depth more time on the field.  I mean, me telling you its an option means its not going to have our starters in a revolt since we are realistically out of the playoffs barring some strange implosion by most of the teams in the conference.

1. What did you make of this weeks game for your team?

"I'm pretty gutted for our guys. They fought hard down to the very last second - and to lose that way is heartbreaking. We made a fantastic play... Hector Lopez and our kick return team really put us on their shoulders at the end of that game and we thought we the victory wrapped up. Unfortunately, things didn't go our way. I'm proud of our guys - each guy on our roster contributed in some capacity: either on the field or rooting for their teammates. This season hasn't gone our way but this game was an example of the type of players Music City has on its roster. They have a lot of fight in them."

2. With two games remaining, who is someone you believe really needs to show up big?

2. What was your biggest success this season?

"Continuing to be competitive despite all of the GM mistakes."

3. What was your biggest failure, and what caused it?

"Dealing with Carlson. I refused to let him hold this team hostage because he didn't like our game planning. While I'll maintain that it was the right decision to let him go after holding out on his team -- I could have handled it in a much more productive manner."

4. If you could go back to the end of last season and change one thing, what would it be?

"Nothing."

5. How do you plan on improving this team going forward, will you be back with this team?

"We need a stronger running game -- it's no secret. You heard me discuss my disappointment with coach Crowder on how we couldn't quite get that going. I hope so ... I haven't had a chance to put my stamp on this team yet and I'm looking forward to the opportunity in doing so."

I wouldn't mind having you give Dale Link an interview.  He was a great team player when I was running the defense for Alabama.. That was and still is a class organization, so any ties to them sit well with me.

"Hey, Dale. I'm looking for an OC. You come highly recommended by Coach Crowder. Your offenses in Las Vegas ran primarily out of the shotgun and at a very fast tempo. Is that your preferred style or did coach Evans influence your play calls?"

I came in without a ton of coaching experience, so I've adopted that shotgun and fast tempo offense as my own style.

"Dale, I'm torn. Coach Crowder's recommendation carries a lot of weight but I'm worried about our current roster configuration in running a vertical/shotgun based offense. Trevor Jose, assuming that he's going to continue his playing career and would like to resign here, would be a fantastic fit in that type of offense. However, I'm hellbent on improving our run game. I believe Melvin Pugh has all kinds of talent but we didn't seem to be able to put him in positions to succeed last season. Are you capable of tailoring your offense to get the most out of our running game?"

I honestly can't say, I've not tried to work anything outside of the Vegas offense, now as a RB coach, I know I can get the job done with your backs.

I've done it before, and I'd do it again as long as the OC was someone I respected, same as the head coach.. so when you get a staff together give me a call.

I'm going to be honest with you, right now I don't quite think I'm ready to go back into a coordinator job, my last run didn't go so well, so I'd like to stay in an A.C. capacity for a little while.

Hello sir.  The owner asked me to give you all of the following information.

- We have until the end of Monday to submit our protections and super protections and finalize them with a "LOCK IN"

- We have 3.25MM in off-season PR

- We need to hire an Offensive Coordinator, Defensive Coordinator, and we have the option to hire an assistant coach

- Our scouting direction is also the head coach of our Minor League affiliate, so we need to decide if we want to re-sign Richard Collins or if we want to go with a new scouting director.


After the Expansion draft we will receive a "ERFA primer" showing us our available roster spots, salary cap, and PR, please do not ask about this until it is given, Thank you.

I know you prefer a shotgun approach and honestly, I'd be excited to see the fireworks you could put on the field with our current crop of WR's -- which I believe is one of the best in the league."

CAPTAINS:

PR CAMPAIGNS:

Michael Meek - $500k
"The Meek Inherits the Kingdom!"

Music City will partner with Lifeway Resources in downtown Nashville to put up a billboard with Michael Meek holding a football and the tagline "The Meek Inherits the Kingdom!"

Melvin Pugh - $1.75m
1m - “Pugh’s Power-I Academy” - GM Rebel’s snafu of adjusting the King’s game plan to phase out the running game, Melvin Pugh was hurt the most. Pugh has a wealth of knowledge to pass down to the next generation and to help rebuild his image as one of the premier running backs in all of the HIFL, Pugh will run a camp in the offseason for inner-city kids throughout Tennessee with a focus on teaching them the basics of the running back position while helping prepare themselves to get a college education using their football skills.

750k - “Pugh’s Pack” - A corner of the King’s Stadium will be designated as “Pugh’s Pack.” Before each game, arena staff will pass out crowns and t-shirts with Pugh’s likeness. Every time Pugh scores a touchdown, a member of the ‘Pack’ will be selected at random and receive the ball that Pugh scores with.

Erik Pitts - $3m
1.5m - “Pitts-Stop” - Perhaps the fastest man in all of professional football, Erik Pitts will join with the Nashville Super Speedway and NASCAR’s Kevin Busch to partner with a fan experience a ride along. Pitts will select 10 lucky fans to experience the Ride-A-Long with them as well as a backstage tour of Music City’s stadium.

1m - Erik Pitts will team with Rock-N-Roll Marathons that host over 30,000 marathon runners to sponsor the Nashville marathon. His name will be included on all of the promotional materials as the “Erik Pitts Rock-N-Roll Marathon of Nashville.”

500k - For every touchdown Pitts scores over 20-yards, a video will be shown on the big screen of Pitts outrunning a NASCAR car from the previous “Pitts-Stop” promotion.

James Van Driver - $750k
“Cover Man”
With Athlon Sports Communications being based in Nashville, it only makes sense that James Van Driver becomes the cover athlete for this year’s edition of the extremely popular “Athlon Sports HIFL Prediction” magazine. James Van Driver will be on the cover of the magazine and feature an article about his rise from a top high-school athlete all the way to one of the top up-and-coming HIFL receivers of today.

Mark Prince - $1m
“Heir to the Throne”
Music City will partner with HBO’s “Game of Thrones” for a special Game of Throne themed pregame photo opportunity with Mark Prince. Fans will have the opportunity to take pictures next to the seated and appropriately costumed Prince on the throne. In addition, every fan that participates will have a chance to win an extra role on the upcoming season of the show alongside Mark Prince.

Franklin Sanderson - $750k
“Big Frank”
There’s no doubt that Franklin Sanderson is a mountain of a man. Standing at approximately 300 lbs. and over 6-feet, he stands out whatever he goes. “Big Frank” will partner with AT&T, home of the biggest building in all of Nashville, to pose with fans and sign autographs at their AT&T Building in downtown. He’ll also be used a line of advertisements for AT&T’s new “BIG” data plan giving users the choice at unlimited data.

Tony Stacy - $2m
1m - “The Stacy Shimmy” - The two most exciting plays in football is when a big man scoops up a loose football and runs for a touchdown or when a powerful tackle slices through the offensive line for a game-changing sack. We’ve seen a tremendous amount of sack dances over the years but prepare yourselves for the grandaddy of them all with the “Stacy Shimmy!” Music City will work with Tennessee’s own critically acclaimed hip-hop group Three-6-Mafia to create a :20 second ‘hook’ to get the crowd up-and-moving every time Stacy records a sack or creates a big play.

1m - “Stacy’s Shortstacks” - Who doesn’t love pancakes? A new restaurant will open in the concourse of Music City’s stadium focusing solely on pancakes that are near and dear to our hearts. 50% of the proceeds from sales during Music City home games will go to a charity of Tony’s choice.

Chris Blevins - $1m
Chris will have the pleasure of introducing Tennessee’s own Justin Timberlake on his tour stop at Music City’s stadium. Blevins with partner with Justin Timberlake and Make-a-Wish foundation where 10 children selected from the Make-a-Wish program and their families will have the opportunity to get a backstage tour of both the Stadium and the concert.

Carrol Lang - $2m
“Clubber Carrol Lang”
Carrol will appear in a photoshoot with Mr. T as the iconic “Clubber Lang” from the Rocky franchise. Pictures will include Carrol in boxing gear as well as Mr. T dressed up in shoulder pads and eye-paint. Mr. T will appear at one home game during the season to take pictures with fans and Carrol Lang. Finally, t-shirts from the above photoshoot will be given to the first 7,500 people who arrive to the stadium for one home game.

Shane Barkley - $2m
1.5m - “No Fly Zone” - A commercial will be shown all over the Southeast of Shane Barkley swatting away passes intended for receivers in his immediate vicinity. After a brief highlight reel, the commercial will pan to Barkley sitting on the nose of an airplane and reminding fellow HIFL receivers that they’re entering a “No Fly Zone.”

500k - “Locked Down.” - Bobbleheads of Shane Barkley will be released during the first home game of the season of his likeness including a large chain necklace with a lock on the end of it … symbolizing his ability to lockdown opposing receivers.

Alfred Maggard - $2m
1.5m - “The Earl of Music City” - He isn’t a king. He isn’t a prince. His job is to patrol the sacred lands of Music City and destroy an enemy that comes his way - the highest honor one could have been given outside of the royal family: The Earl of Music City. Nobody gets by without his expressed permission … and he isn’t in any mood to negotiate. A billboard will by placed over the Southeast with Alfred Maggard’s arms-crossed and dressed in Medieval garb.

500k - With the partnership between Music City and MTV - the company will renew Maggard’s kid’s cartoon that was created several seasons ago … this time with a primetime time-slot and more of an adult theme.

SPECIAL MUSIC:

Hello GM Rebel, Attached you will find our team report from training camp.

Locally fan support is "okay" but recently with the addition of the team in Charlotte and the massive draft class of Atlanta fan support has been shifting toward those teams as well, so we need to defeat them as much as possible to win that support back and solidify ourselves in the region.

"Coach Crowder, please."

"Coach, welcome back."

"What are your first impressions of Micheal Meek? You can't ever just replace a Hall of Famer like Trevor Jose, but it's no secret with our dynamic passing attack that we need a top-flight QB to succeed. As you've seen him throw a little bit in camp, what kind of season can we expect?"

"Defensively, I thought we made really good additions. Stacy, Lang, Burger and Caldwell are all upgrades. Do you see us lowering our allowed PPG this season?"

I think he is talented, tat is for sure.  He has great arm strength and advanced accuracy for a rookie, he has the occasional bad-read or decision making error, but he is far ahead of what you'd typically expect, although this draft was a pretty stocked pond, I think we made a great pick up.  There will be plenty of growing pains, but I don't see him as a liability nearly as much as I see him as an asset.

"I think you're correct, coach. I think Lang and Burger will certainly help bring a little thump from the linebacking core. But otherwise, we're pretty well set ... I think we're going to play the pre-season as usual unless anything else comes up between now and the time we get on the bus."

"I've got one more thing to discuss with you and I'll let you get back to practice. I've been accused of being too loyal to my coaches in the past and I couldn't agree more ... people seem to want to paint that in to a negative and I would argue. I like continuity and I like knowing what we've got instead of the unknown. With that being said, you're a free agent at the end of the season. Where are you on coaching beyond this season?"

Hello and welcome. For those who may not know who I am my name is Wesley Bennett but most of you can just call me GM Bennett. Some of you may remember me from my days in the NCAA when I played for the Miami Hurricanes. Last time you may have saw me on the gridiron I was a star tight end with a dream of making it into the HIFL and then those dreams vanished in a blink of an eye thanks to me blowing out my knee in the middle of a bowl game. As you can see I did not let that injury keep me down for long. I’ve went on to get my MBA and started a sports marketing firm. I’ve done pretty well for myself needless to say. Throughout all those years I have kept my dream of being part of the HIFL and now here I am. Given an opportunity to be a General Manager one of many fantastic franchises the league has to offer.

Yes, the rumors are true I did turn down the job for the Tombstone Outlaws to come here to Nashville instead. Make no doubt about it I would’ve loved to be part of the Outlaws organization with all they were offering me but I felt that I could achieve my goals here in Music City a little bit more efficiently with the shorter time given to me to do so. Music City Kings has a fabulous roster and coaching staff that I will like to see grow. I have goals in mind and one of those is to build a successful team that is built and ready for the playoffs. How long they may take? Only the man upstairs truly knows that answer but I plan to do my best to reach that goal and the Impact Bowl Championship game.

Now, enough about me let’s get on to business shall we?

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

From watching the game I seen we did a lot of things right on the offensive side of the ball. Michael Meek and an exceptional game throwing for 257 yards and completely half of his throws which can’t call be blamed on him. Sometimes guys just gotta catch the ball or sometimes it’s just the other team playing damn good defense. We have to be ready for these sort of things to happen because they will happen. As well as Meek throwing an interception. Again that’s not on him that’s just good defense. Our rushing attack was decent with both Pugh & Sibley getting into the endzone. Some good things going on here on offense but what about the wrongs?

The wrongs of this game are A. Too Many Penalties. Way too many with those loss of yards. We can’t make these kind of mistakes. We can’t make things harder on us than it may already be. I believe the penalties are what killed us this game more than anything. The other thing I didn’t like too much was this inability to convert on third down. We were only able to convert three out of the 12 attempts. Three. That’s inexcusable in my book. We have to convert. We have to get us a fresh set of downs and yards. We have to minimize our mistakes and play good Kings football and this team can turn itself around easy.

2. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the toughest thing to prepare for this week?

This upcoming week we will be taking on the Seattle Lumberjacks. This will be a tough outing to say the least as we all know they have a truly dominate run game. The toughest thing we will have to prepare for is to stop the run and limit their opportunities to make plays. You kill the run, you damage the pass. Simple as that. I believe our guys will go out and play hard this week to try and get us our first win of the season.

GM Bennett, good to meet you.  The name is Bill Crowder.    I'm the head coach here.  My main specialty is defense, having been the mastermind behind the Alabama Nighthawk dynasty's defense during the early years in the league. 

Anything you need to know about this team, I should be able to help you with, so just let me know what you need to know.

Hello Coach Crowder, it's a pleasure to finally meet you. Knowing that your specialty is defense brings a joy to my heart if I'm gonna be honest with you coach. I want us to have a gold mine at defense going forward. Our offense seems to already be really good. We'll just having to keep growing going forward.

In your opinion how do you see our team in your eyes, coach? Shoot it to me straight.

We have been ravaged by a string of half-ass GM's ever since GM Justin left us for "greener pastures."  ...that didn't work out so well for him by the way.

We spent the 13th pick in the draft on Michael Meek at QB, h's been solid but not spectacular so far, averaging 265 yards per game but he needs to work on becoming more consistent.   He has all the tools though, so we view him as a high-ceiling player..

Our RB corps has great depth with Melvin Pugh and Shayne Sibley both being starter-caliber backs. Both are averaging 5+ per carry right now and they compliment each other very well.

On the offensive line, Robert Sapp is our top guard prospect, he's in his fourth season and is still perfecting playing guard.  He has the talent to play, but in college he played all over the line so he never mastered one discipline, but he has the upside to continue to improve.  DeMarcus Montgomery is our other starting guard and while he is a strong run blocker, his conditioning and unrefined pass protection game make him a replaceable asset down the road.  He's getting the job done for now, but if a guard upgrade becomes available in the future, I believe its worth the investment.

John Boss is a starting tackle of ours and he's the model of inconsistency.  He's a great leader on the team, but his play doesn't match on most days.  He's a guy who can go all year without giving up more than 10 total sacks, or he can give up ten over 5 games...  He's not great in the run game either, so that's another spot I'd look to upgrade.

Meanwhile on the left side, we have Mark Prince who is deservedly our top paid offensive lineman.  He's got a great blend of strength and technique, plus as great as he is, he's still getting better and will continue to do so.  I see him a future top 5 Tackle,  He's 26 and in his 4th season, so don't let him go, period.

Our starting Center is Gordon Seymore, a 2nd round pick this year who has already proven his worth, only allowing one sack so far this year and playing great football.  He's a keeper, and on a 3 year/3MM deal, he's a great value for us right now.

Our tight ends suck, period.

Now to round out the offense, lets talk receivers...

We have a talented duo of starters in Matthew Grover and James Van Driver.    Grover is a 5th year guy and at 28 he's proving to be a talented producer giving us around 95 yards per game right now.  We got him in a trade during the off-season from Rapid City. He was their WR3 each of the last two-years and even as the WR3 put together 986 and 873 yard seasons with 6 and 7 TDs in those years.  He does have some drop issues, having already dropped 7 balls for us this year, but he's a home run hitter when he gets the ball and already has 9 of his 23 catches going for 20+

JVD is a corner turned WR, also from Rapid City.  We picked him up in free agency last year and he gave us 34 catches for 595 yards and 8 TDs as the WR3, he's got amazing speed but still-developing hands.  He's only 23 and in his 4th year, and so far this year he's got 18 catches for 496 yards and  TDs with 5 plays of 40+  one of them being an 83 yard catch and run.  Talk about electric, that's this kid to a "T"

Beyond those two though, our WR depth is awful. So an injury could really hurt us.


...Any questions here before I cover the defense?

(http://espnsportssims.net/pics/var/albums/Logos/mc1.png)


Alright no problem... so lets talk Corners.

Paul Camacho is a young kid we got from Vegas, where he played as a nickle during his rookie year.  This year he's started for us and has collected a couple of INTs and had to pile up some tackles, a lot of those come from some of the holes in his game and giving up catches. He's got a lot to work on, but he's only in his second year and is a former 2nd round pick.

Alfred Maggard is our CB1 and is in his 3rd year with the team, 5th year in the league.  He's been a starter for us ever since arriving.  He's been consistent over his career, never being a big turnover guy, but being a solid corner.  He's already broken up 6 passes this year, which ties his total from last year, so we see him as a great piece of the defense.

James Cochran is a 3rd year guy who hasn't show munch promise.  he's an expiring deal, so nothing too special to worry about long term.

At linebacker, we have rookie Michael Burger, a 2nd round pick who has already piled up 39 tackles and 7 TFLs, forced 2 fumbles, recovered 2 fumbles, and scored 3 sacks.    He's looking like a great pick for us and should anchor the corps for years to come.

We also have Carroll Lang, a 10th year veteran who is everything you want in a leader and veteran.  He's shown no signs of slowing down, having gotten better statistically each year over the last 5 seasons, but he is likely at his peak now.  Great player to lean on.

Our other veteran backer, Chris "The Tacklebot" Blevins is in his 14th season and has been with us for 5 years now.  He's shown signs of decline, but still has averaged 80 tackles and 10 sacks a year over the last 3 years. He is in the final year of his deal.

We also have Marvin Mata, 4th year guy in his 2nd year with us.  He's our 4th starting LB, 50 tckles, 6 sacks last year and so far 11 tackles this year.  He isn't asked to do a ton, but he is eager to keep producing for us, so I like his work ethic but he is in his final year with the club.

At DT we have expensive-yet-talented Tony Stacy, a big strong space eater who might not stuff the stat sheet, but he impacts the game regardless.

Behind him we aren't very deep. We have 7th round pick Augustus johnson who hasnt done much in his five games with the team, and former 2nd round pick Franklin Sanderson Last year he started every game as the DT2 and gave us a tackle per game and 3 sacks on the year... not too impressive from a 4.5MM per year investment.

at DE, William Donaldson is our top player, he's a strong run supporter who is fast enough to rush the passer. He had 11 sacks last year and so far his year has 3 so far.  He has an outstanding motor and work ethic.

Across from him is our 3rd round pick this year, Kyle Smith.  He's a 6'8 long body but his speed has been underwhelming and he's had some struggles due to a less than ideal work ethic.

Our strong safeties are lacking.  Rick Bradshaw is a 4th year guy who is a good leader but hasn't been a stellar player.  He's a first-time starter, and so far hasn't done a ton to impress, but the youngster behind him, Josh Houston is even more underwhelming. 

We've been playing both of our FS's regularly, which has helped negate Bradshaw being a "starter"  Rafael Caldwell is a 2nd round pick from this past draft and has stepped in nicely with 33 tackles a sack and 2 pass break ups. Vincent Wright is a 4th year guy with starter experience.  He hasn't been as dynamic as Caldwell, but he is faster and more athletic than the strong safety options we have.

Alright coach. Just so we can move on to our lock in...

Can you tell me what our Offense focus is in terms of Passing, Balanced or Rushing? I'd want us to be balanced and rush a little more than we do pass.

And with defense are we looking at a 3-4 or a 4-3 formation?

Hello and welcome back ladies and gentlemen. I believe I got a long day ahead of me so let's go ahead and knock this out.

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

This week's game against Seattle started out pretty good for us. We were competing and even held the lead from second all the way to the third after only allowing a field goal in the first. Unfortunately we lost that lead in fourth dramatically after allowing not one but three rushing TD's. And along with that Seattle played good defense allowing for us not to answer back with any kind of score for the rest of the game. We knew that Seattle's rushing attack was gonna be a fury to deal with coming into this game and it's pretty clear that we just got outmatched with it's all said and done. The positives I can note is that our guys played hard. Meeks threw the ball pretty good and didn't get discouraged by dropped nor tipped passes. Or even his one interception. He kept slinging that ball all like he knows how. I believe Michael will become a star QB in this league in due time. He's only a rookie and he's putting up quality numbers. He's gonna grow over time and you're gonna see a dramatic change within his completion and attempt ratio. One of the key negatives of this game was our third down conversions. Much of the same of last week. I believe we have a good enough offense to convert this third downs but we're just not executing.

2. Talk about this weeks league news, what stood out most to you?

Rookie Showcase is upon us. This is one of the things both the Kings & Outlaws wanted me in the first place. I'm here to build a team into a winning franchise and one of those key components to do that is within the draft. The showcase is something that is certainly appealing to me because it will allow for me to get a chance to see our upcoming draft class up close and personal so I can see who will fit our organization the most. I can't wait for it and you had better bet your backsides I'll be in the front row watching each and every player as closely as I possibly can.

3. What do you bring to the table as a GM in the HIFL?  Do you expect early success?

As a new GM in the HIFL I bring a sense of the game that some executives don't. I've played the game at a high level. I've dealt with the highs and the lows of this sport. Along with that hands on experience I have a successful background. Put those two together I have the mindset of what it means to build a team that will help lead us to greener pastures in the long run as well as keeping us financially equipped to deal with anything that comes our way. I want the best for our team in both spectrums.

I do not expect early success. There's a lot we have to work on before we can see ourselves getting to where we want to be. I believe in due time we'll be back to being an undeniable force in this league. Just takes time. We look around this league and we see what we're up against. We know the challenges we must face before we are able to reach our goal to become a playoff team. I believe by my third year, we'll be where we want to be.

4. With the draft class being announced later this week, do you plan to target personalities, skill sets, or position groups at the college showcase?

I plan to target all of thee above. If you have the skills a particular position I think will beneficial to the Kings team in order for us to succeed I'm gonna want you. If you present a personality that I feel screams Music City, I want you. All of these things come into play when it comes for teams wanting to bring in talent. I believe if you're just focusing on one thing then you're not actually looking in the best interest of your team and organization. I have to take all factors into consideration not just one or the other.

5. What do you hope to gain most this week during the bye week, for yourself but also for your team?

With this bye week I hope to talk to a few of the guys and our coaching staff before myself and Coach Crowder head off to the Rookie Showcase. Hopefully with this time off Kevin Caldwell's hand can get back to being one hundred percent healthy. I just want our guys to be able to work on getting better on & off the field. I was always told you have to be strong up here...

POINTS AT HIS HEAD

...Before you can be strong out there on the field and experience success. We're getting there. We're a young team and have a lot to learn.

Yeah, at least we have this bye week to try and readjust. Despite our loss I liked what we were able to achieve up until the fourth quarter. I don't know what exactly happened but it was like we were lifeless in the fourth.

Any other positives you can see that came out of this game, coach? Anything you thing you think we should work on going forward?

Understandable. Hopefully some rest can fuel this guys back up and we can get after it in Week 8.

Alright in terms of this rookie showcase, I've already said I'm looking at anything and everything basically...But more importantly I think I'm gonna be looking at TE's, Receivers any and all defensive positions. I believe if we're gonna get anywhere in the future these are the areas we should focus on mainly. I think Michael is only gonna get better going forward. which I plan on talking to him shortly to remind him of this as well. Our OL is good and we have them under contract for a couple more seasons.

I don't want us to just improve in one aspect, but all around coach.

Speaking of Meek, though...What kind of QB would you describe him as? A pocket passer? Or is he capable of being a duel threat in terms of passing and running?

I agree with your assessment for the showcase.. as for Meek, he is definitely a pure pocket passer.  He's got a tall frame, strong arm, solid accuracy, and his decision making is already in a good place but still has room to improve.  The only knock I have on the young man is that he is not a leader, so I would avoid ever naming him as a team captain.  He's not a big time team-player, so you have to deal with the classic QB-Ego.

That's fine with me. I can deal with any kind of personality, coach. As long as we feel that he can be our QB of the future then I believe we will be fine. Thanks for telling me this coach, this will help me know what to put around him going forward.

Who would you say is our leader on the offensive side of the ball?

We really lack a ton of leadership on the offense.  Where on the defense we have Lang, Mata, and Donaldson all as very vocal leaders, Pugh and Brogan are really the only two vocal natural leaders we have.  Pugh is young and brash, so it rubs some wrong, but he does it for the right reasons, where Brogan is a veteran leader who doesn't play much at all, but has a ton of value right now as our truest leader on offense.

Hm..That's a little unfortunate. One would think your best players would be the leaders and not bench players.

LOOKS OUT THE WINDOW AND THINKS TO HIMSELF[/B]

Very interesting indeed coach. Coach I'd be lying if I told you this being the final year on your contract doesn't concern me. Especially with what looks to be our financial situation. I plan on working the books with Princess during week to determine just where we stand financially come off season time. I'll tell you now that one of my many plans is to keep you here in Nashville (If you so choose to stay) for a couple more seasons to see what we can do together with a full season & off season under our belts.

I'm probably just thinking out loud and probably shouldn't, something my wife tells me I have a bad habit of doing; but I want to be honest with you through and through.

I appreciate that.  I'll either be back here or I'll be retiring, I'm getting near the end of my road so I don't really want to start from scratch somewhere else.  We'll talk more about that in the future, don't worry about it right now because I'm not going to be leaving for another job.

Michael! It's a pleasure to finally meet you face to face. I just wanted a chance to finally speak to you. I believe you can be a force in this league as time goes on and you gain more experience, personally. You have one heck of an arm on you, there's really no doubt about that. Just seeing you play in person and hearing what Coach Crowder has had to say about you, I know you have a lot of upside to you.

With that said, how are you feeling about your rookie season so far?

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

We won the game and our guys went out there and executed a great game through and through. I'm proud of everyone performance this week. Only thing that went wrong for us was as it's been since I took over as GM and that is our third down conversions. Other than that I am quite pleased.

2. Give us an evaluation of the first half of the season for your team, who has stood out both good and bad?

It would be unfair for me to give an complete evaluation of this season's first half since I just took over two weeks ago. I see a young team that can grow into a powerhouse in this league if given the time and player continue to develop on both sides of the ball. I believe we can be more efficient and consistent thought I know these things can be learned and achieve when given the chance and time to do so. The future is bright Music City.

3. With where you sit in the standings, how do you feel about your chances of meeting your owners expectations and how do you grade your performance as GM?

We are where we knew we would be. We are a team on the rebuild and it will take time for us to be e premiere team in this league. I believe with me at the helm we will achieve this in seasons to come. I've only been on the job for two weeks so I can not give myself a grade at this time. Ask me again when this season is over and done with. Or maybe even at the start of next season and we will see where we are at by then.

4. Who is your league-wide Mid-season MVP?  Who has been the most surprising under performer?

5. Which of your division rivals has surprised you the most? How and Why?


I honestly haven't been here long enough to answer these two questions and it would be unfair for me to do so without the proper knowledge to do so.

6. Talk to us about your upcoming game this week.  What will be the key to victory?

As with any game, I we go into we know it will be a fight and there isn't any easy Sunday. We're going into this game knowing that it's gonna be a shoot out between or offenses. Our keys to victory is to make stops, capitalize on given opportunities, convert on 3rd down and to not give up on ourselves or each other.

Clears throat with a light chuckle

Appears I have the wrong notes up here, let's try this again shall we?

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

We won the game and our guys went out there and executed a great game through and through. I'm proud of everyone performance this week. Only thing that went wrong for us was as it's been since I took over as GM and that is our third down conversions. Other than that I am quite pleased.

2. Talk about this weeks league news, what stood out most to you? (cover at least two topics)

It's pretty obvious which story stood out the most to me this this week...It's the news that Matthew Grover wants to leave Music City via Free Agency or Trade. This is unfortunate news for our organization. I plan on talking to after my meeting with Coach Crowder to try and have a face to face conversation with him.

The other bit of news that was a bit bewildering to me was that damn scuffle between Atlanta's owner and GM Lucas that lead to Mr. Crowe leaving the HIFL for the XFL. I have to say in all my years of living I've never seen or heard of anything like this happening. Do I have a comment about the situation as a whole? Not really it's none of my business but it is quite comical to say the least.

3. How did you feel about the first annual HIFL/NCAA Showcase?  Do you feel like it was a beneficial addition to the league?

The showcase was a great experience. It was very beneficial to everyone in the league and for the student athletes. I believe this will be a great program for HIFL for years to come. It gives us a chance to see key players at different positions who we may end up drafting to help our respective teams. I look forward to attending more in the next three years.

4. What was your take on the amount of GM errors that occurred during the bye-week?

Not my problem.

5. Do you plan on making any call ups this week before locking in?

No.

6. Talk about your game this upcoming week.

As with any game, I we go into we know it will be a fight and there isn't any easy Sunday. We're going into this game knowing that it's gonna be a shoot out between or offenses. Our keys to victory is to make stops, capitalize on given opportunities, convert on 3rd down and to not give up on ourselves or each other.

Thanks, coach. Feels good to get the first win under your belt. Hopefully in a few seasons we'll have us a team that can et us enough wins to get us to the playoffs and ultimately the Impact Bowl. In due time..

I haven't taken it like a demand or even that he is 100% not re-signing.  It could be a negotiation tactic, or that he just wants to test the market.   I wouldn't rush to trade him unless we get a big offer.

Hello Matt, it's nice to meet you finally. Please sit down, relax.

I heard what you said to the media about possibly leaving during the off season and even being open to being traded. I just wanted to talk to you face to face and figure out why exactly you'd want to leave. You're a key figure in our offense and receiving core, I'd hate to see you go. I personally would like to see you help lead this team back to what it once was.

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

Second straight week we were able to come out with a W. This week was one helluva fight that we went out there and slugged it out with the Monsters. Meek had a flawless night. Pugh & Sibley were pounding the hell out of the ball on the ground. Grover and the rest of our receiving core made their presence felt. I'm proud of this team's passion this week. Even with the loss of Dorsey we were able to compete at a high level and come out with a tough win.

Speaking of Dorsey, we wish him a speedy recover. Seeing what happened to him and having to be rushed to the hospital was...Well it was a gut wrench to say the least.

2. Give us an evaluation of the first half of the season for your team, who has stood out both good and bad?

First half of the season...Not going to lie to you it's nothing to be enamored about. This is a young team that's going out there trying it's best to compete with some heavy hitters in this league. Everything is coming together and it's gonna take some time for us to be where we want and believe to be in the future. I'm happy about the progress Meek has shown as well as the consistent effort the entire team. We're in this together and we're making each other bother. These two past wins are proof of that. Is there things we can improve on? Of course but I'm not in a rush for this season. We're just getting our feet wet right now.

3. With where you sit in the standings, how do you feel about your chances of meeting your owners expectations and how do you grade your performance as GM, what about your job security?

We have low expectations this season and maybe even the next. I am here to make sure this team becomes a playoff team in the future. We're just in the beginning stages of that. My grade as GM right now? No idea. Ask me this in the middle of next season or the off season after that. Too early for me or anyone else to tell how well I'm doing so far.

4. Who is your league-wide Mid-season MVP?  Who has been the most surprising under performer?

Couldn't tell you. I haven't been here from the start of the season to actually tell you.

5. Which of your division rivals has surprised you the most? How and Why?

None of them.

6. With the Trade Deadline coming up this week, Do you see yourself as a buyer, a Seller, or do you plan to hold fast with what you have?

Currently we are holding on to what we got. If a team makes offer worth our time that actually makes sense for us..Then maybe we'll pull the trigger. So far we haven't gotten such offers. Not really interested in working with those who think they can take advantage of me just because I'm the "new guy" or whatever. Only want to deal with intelligent offers if not that? Why are you contacting me in the first place?

SHRUGS

7. What is your opinion on the league's newly announced luxury tax rule, do you believe it is fair, and do you believe it will benefit the league?

I believe it's fair. Do I think it will benefit the league? Time will only tell but I believe so.

8. Talk about your game this upcoming week, what do you need to focus on most?

Back to Back wins, a nice way to show the team they can believe in themselves and what we have on the roster.   ...No owner meeting since there were no official expectations to report on, but I know for a fact that the organization is happy with what you're doing here so far.

...Also, I'm thinking that I do want to stick around the league a few more years, so if you still want to talk about an extension.  I'm good to talk.

DC has struggled to score, which is great for us because one thing we can do is score, if we can hold them up and force field goals, we have a chance.  On the bad side of things, we're currently last in the league in points allowed.

Well we're gonna for sure fight for this win, coach. And if we don't? We know where we are as a team and know what we are striving for. We're gonna be great on both sides of the ball in years to come coach.

Losing out on Dorsey is tough. Though I know he wasn't starting for us I know losing any player due to injury is a punch in the gut. I wanna be able to move him to Injury Reserve and sign us a TE in free agency to take his spot for the remainder of the season.  Thoughts on that, coach?

We can do that, but at the same time, there isn't much in the way of tight ends on the market, I don't think.. might be just as well to just go in with a WR or FB as the back up TE.

As much as I'd like that, we can't. its a formation based depth chart, not a play-type based depth chart.  Since we've already moved the TE to the IR, we need to sign one anyways, so it's really not a big issue now.

Fair enough, coach. Do you have a preference on who we should look at? I see Ricky Sawyer is available but what if we signed us a FB and converted him into a TE?

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

It was one helluva Snow Bowl wasn't it? I thought we played pretty well against one of the better teams in the league on their home field and the rough weather conditions. I appreciate the the effort from all of our players top to bottom this week. We were able to play a strong defensive game despite losing by ten points which is really just a touchdown, an extra point plus a forced field goal. Considering that it was a close defensive game by both teams. The good think I'm seeing is Meek has been making improvements week in and week out. Our backs are pushing forward. Our receivers are producing great numbers and not giving up on their plays. The defensive is putting these offenses on their toes making them not to underestimate them by any means. I'm proud of them all win or lose. What went wrong? As it has been, third down conversions and our run defense. There wasn't much they could do through the air but their running game? It was their bread and butter this week and that's what lead to their victory.

2. With the All-Star Rosters being announced this week, what is your take on the composition, any snubs or surprises from your own team?  (for Kirk/Jon, talk about the opposing roster, for everyone else, comments and talk about who you felt deserved to go on your squad etc)

All I'll say is that I'm proud of Grover & Stacy making the Eastern Conference All Star team. Do I think some other of our guys deserved a shot at being on this roster. Of course I do and that's not to discredit anyone else who did or didn't make the team.

3. What news stories stood out to you this week?

Their rumors of some GM's being on the hot seat lately...I'm proud to say I am not one of those GM's. I believe there's gonna be some shifts going on in the HIFL come off season but...You know that's just me speculating. It's going to be interesting to watch to say the least. Also going to be interesting to see who GM Jon & GM Kirk choose to replace the players who turned down their All Star invitations. I hope they make the right choices in their decisions in these coming weeks and good luck to them in their process.

4. Talk about your game this upcoming week, what do you need to focus on most?

It's a game against two struggling teams which...Tulsa is coming off an upset victory over the Lumberjacks. It's gonna be a fun game to say the least we're really looking forward to it.

Outside of the mix up about Grover being on the All Star team instead of James Van Driver, solid presser.  ...don't sweat the mix up, our boys were all in the sauna during your presser so I doubt it matters.

Guys are feeling good though, despite the loss, playing in that old-school kind of game in the snow was fun, and that's good when the boys are still having fun, even in a down year.

They are feisty, they run the ball well but that is about all they do offensively. Bacon on the outside is a deep threat who can break away if he gets space, but other than that it's not too tough to gameplan for them.  Defensively they have some young talent, but with that youth comes some inconsistency.  Oliver is their tackling machine who can do it all, he helps in both the run and the pass so he's going to get on the statsheet no matter what.

Fair enough coach. Sounds we'll have a fight on our hands for this victory. And with them coming off a tough win they have some momentum...But shit, so do we! We played a damn good game this past Sunday.
