General Manager's Office / Re: TEAM: BROOKLYN PUNISHERS
« on: Today at 01:57:46 PM »
Why did you win or lose your last series?
We won because we are starting to mesh. I think in the beginning we were all trying to find our stride at the cost of smart baseball. Now we are starting to play more like a team. Plus coach got these guys battling. Long Beach thought they were gonna come in here with johnny Baseball and take us out. Let that be a lesson for anyone who thinks the Punishers are playing around.

Talk about at least one piece of news.
How about them Punishers beating league favorite Long Beach. Putting up those runs, locking down the end of the game. Let's talk about that news.   
 
What changes would you like to see happen in the league? Anything you plan on bringing to the table during winter meetings in the off season?
You'll see, I'm not going to give anything away but there will be Gm's who agree and some who flat out want to fight me.

Talk about your opponent this week. What will be the key to victory?
I don't need to talk about my opponent, they should be talking about us. We are the dogg in every match up so why would i want to speak about them, that's your guys job. I'm going to talk about us and say we are only going to get better. Our hitting is coming around, our pitching will figure it out but no matter what Coach will get the most out of these guys. If there are no further questions....(Throws up the Roc Nation Diamond signal with his hands)

Ms. Watson can you get me coach Fletcher

Coach, as you know we are in a pivotal time. Teams are calling for some of our guys but we are not sellers, we are buyers this time. I wanted to pick your brain. A few questions

First, How do you see our defense. Is there anywhere that needs significant upgrade through free agency or do you think we have enough on the roster and Minor league to make it happen.

Second, besides our CB's are any of our players you see on D untouchable.

I think this combination with a WR like Zambrano in the slot will make us dangerous. Now we can let Mazza out his cage. I believe Pitts should be arriving shortly if he isn't here but I wanted to Surprise Erik. It hasn't hit the ESPN ticker just yet. I'll let you get back to the practice field. hopefully we can get both on the playing field this week. We are going to need them.

Well coach, GM Metro and I have already agreed on a deal which will land us John Pitts. That should significantly improve our passing game and add to even more success to our offense. I am not done, I have other things in the works but that is one that has already been sent in to the league office.

What was your biggest takeaway from your game this week?
I think the biggest take away is that we have to play to our strengths which is looking more and more like what coach Munoz has put forward in our game plan.

With your record at mid-season, how would you grade the first half of Season 11 for your franchise based on your pre-season expectations?
I hate to say this but hot and cold. If I go by what I truly feel we should be then disappointing. We lost some games that we definitely should have not lost. If I look at this from the lens of growing, maturing and learning our playbook then we are on target. Either way you look at it, we are at .500 which is a big step moving forward because we haven't been in this position at this point in the season for a long time now.

At mid-season, which of your players would you consider an underrated performer who deserves more recognition?
Well on the offense side of the ball I think our O-line has been doing a good job opening holes for our running game and protecting our QB. On the defense side of the ball I think Newly acquired Gerald Roberts have been stepping up in Fellows absence.

Three weeks before the All-Star game, who do you believe is a lock from your team to be selected for the game?
It's hard but I can't ignore the job Shrader has been doing. D.C is putting up some real solid YPC numbers. Our pair of second year DT's Mundy and Ezell have really upped their game. Let's not forget when Pitts is healthy he is a lethal weapon. I'm sure I could find a reason for everyone to be selected but those are the definite standouts.

With the trade deadline upon us, do you see your team as a buyer, a seller, or neutral?  ...and what is it you are looking for on the trade market?
at 4 and 4 staying put would mean we are perfect where we are which we aren't. Being sellers would tell those men it's time to start packing it up, so we definitely not selling. That leaves one selection left and all Ic an say is stay tuned.

(Lucas looks at his cell phone)

Hold on Albert, before you go, I just got a text from GM Bone over in KC asking if I have any O-lineman available for trade. They're already on their way to the stadium and sent in their roster sheets to the league office so we can't make any moves official until we go into next week. I'll leave it up to you to what you want to do. I can deactivate you for the next game and trade you next week or, you can play this last game for us and right at the start of next week you will be on the move.

We all have spoken out of turn, jump the gun, we all have stumbled from time to time and I hope this could be one of those times where my admission to being an asshole and an apology could be enough. I always put my players first. I care about my players. Hell I voted to expand rosters to brings guys up and maybe hire some guys out of work right now. I voted for expansion. Again, I apologize and want you to stay but if the damage has been done I’ll grant you your wish hesitantly.

Hell when you are ready to retire I had planned on offering you a job on the coaching staff. I'll find another way. I am sorry I put you through this. I wasted your time.

---

Mr. Esparza, I call you in here out of pure respect. I wish it was under better circumstances. I want to thank you for being a leader on this team. I want to thank you for coming back to an unknown situation and mentoring the young guys. At this time, midway through the season I am getting word that we have a wealth of talent in the minors and the way our roller-coaster season seems to be going I must see what we have going forward. I can't and wouldn't ask you to go to the minors out of respect for your game and leadership. I have to do what is in the best interest of the future of this team. We have no money at the moment and I have to make a few moves. I would like to thank you for coming back and mentoring our young guys but we have to release you. Thank you for your contribution to this team.

Good evening, I would like to offer you a deal you see as win win, we have some solid and young players here who might not see the field because of the superstars in their way. I am looking to move some of this high potential players for mere cash relief. Here is the offers

I think you should reconsider, your aren't getting any reps at the moment which means you aren't getting gaining experience. The minor leagues will allow you to showcase your talents.If coach Kidwell thinks differently you will be back up here in no time. I'm really trying to get you some playing time.

Ms. Watson can you get me DT Marvin Swanson

--

Mr. Swanson, I call you in here in the hopes that we can come to an agreement that works for both parties. As of right now I know you have barely touched the field. Coming out my scouts told me you potential was sky high and it helped that you were one of the strongest rookies to be drafted. I would like to give you the opportunity to start in our minor league system. We did the same for Ezell and Mundy and that's how they got to where the are by starting in the minors last season. It gave them the reps, experiences and knowledge of the game. It also allowed them to really dig in and find that spark that ignited their potential. I come to you because your salary doesn't allow me to move you according to league rules,You have to be willing. RB Darin Cabral knew he wanted to start and accepted this as a challenge to work on his game and get back. I really think starting and having coach Kidwell mentor you will be fantastic for your growth.

Well, after two weeks we are sitting at 6-2. The first week felt really good to come out here and show our fans that there is no drama. Things are moving along just nicely. It's good to get our feet wet and show the league who we are. I'm happy we can start getting some wins for Mr Fisher.

As far as the next two weeks. Well we got to get the right guys in place to step up in Mr.Childress absence. The report says two months, that's a long time to miss such a big and talented body. Hopefully this misfortune creates opportunity for some of our bigs on our bench to step up. We don't see ourselves looking at free agency because I believe we got the depth to carry us so now we see who grabs the brass ring of opportunity.

Ms. Watson, can you get me RB Darin Cabral, thank you

Mr. Cabral, I call you in here to speak about opportunity. To speak about the big picture and your position with the Atlanta Warriors. First off, I am impressed with what I have seen so far. I know getting your first TD on the biggest stage, That opening Thursday night against the defending champs must have been something real special and I am glad you experienced it. I also see you have tools to do many different things. I call you in here because the way our team is currently structured it doesn't seem like you are getting the reps you need to really take the next steps in your game. When I talk to coach Kidwell, he loves you. He thinks you are a very talented young man and have the potential to do some great things if you have the opportunity to start. I want to give you the opportunity to start but this means I want to send you to the minors to work as the number 1 Rb and work with coach Kidwell. I think your growth is imperative to what we do in the future. You have done some good things in your time here but I really want you to get the reps you needs and really work on fine tuning your skills.

I think i could be the worst lost we have suffered, performance wise. Coach, in an effort to put this disgusting week behind us, I spent a lot of time thinking during the break. I think I have been approaching this whole playbook thing wrong. I brought you and Bowman in knowing your playbook but built a team to run and grind hoping your we could fallback on a spread/shotgun playbook for the passing. But maybe we need to unleash Mazza and go back to passing 70% percent of the time and allow our strong run game to help us with our passing. if Pitts come back I think we can go that route, What do you think?

What was the major takeaway you got from this week's game? What did your team do best, and what do you need to do better?
What are some takeaways?
Let me see, What did we do best, well, on the offense side of the ball  well considering we got shutout I can say we did nothing great. We found ourselves fighting to not get shut out which we also failed to do. We did collectively gained a 100 yards rushing but couldn’t get anything going through the air. I know we were missing Pitts and Zambrano was definitely doing his best to put the offense on his shoulders but we couldn’t convert from short yardage when we needed it the most, 4th down.  I mean we controlled the clock which was good, but couldn’t make a field goal which we know is just so damn frustrating. On the defensive side, we failed to record a sack, we allowed 174 yards rushing and we though the stat sheet says we both converted the same on third downs, they did it when it mattered most. I mean, what do we need to do better, that question in week has no bearing, we know what we need to do better. A team Like Tuscon should have never came into our house and shut us out.  If you looked at the tale of the tape, we should have won but instead we were shut us out. So one major takeaway is that we need to be whole. We need every man lacing up their boots this week. Much respect to Tuscon for showing up. But now we move on to Milwaukee.

Did you fall in love with any players from the showcase?  care to share who?
Yes,  let me just say every kicker looked great.

Which player are you most concerned about on your opponent's team this week, and why?
If we go out there and play Milwaukee like we played Tuscon, then every player will be a problem. All we need to do is go out there and stop playing down to our competition. The Barons lost to us last year, they are slightly better so I believe they will be looking for some sort of revenge. I feel like if we play them like we played Alabama, Orlando and Portland we should walk away with a win. 

Talk about anything that stood out to you in the news, how do you feel about the possibility of a 53 man roster?
Well the news goes hand in hand with your follow up questions. Roster expansion.  This could be great as well as horrible. On the positive side we can all have enough depth to support different scheme and play calling through the game while also making sure we have another player who can step in if someone goes down. On the negative side, if our salary Cap doesn’t rise and we are forced to now have to add 13 more players with the same salary, teams will not be willing to dole out cash to major stars which could ultimately backfire. If players don’t get the salary they think they deserve we could be pushing some talented players into the hands of the XLF and AAF.  We will also be making free agency obsolete. Leaving unsigned players after week 1 to bolt to the other leagues.

Talk about the upcoming game, what is one word you would give to your team this week, and why?

Fight!!!

Fight for every inch, for every yard, for every down. Fight them until they move backwards, fight until the ball pops out of their hands, fight at the goal line.

FIGHT!!!

baddabing   baddaboom


- Themed rounds (i.e. wrestlers from certain countries, eras, ages) or open rounds. I like this, like round 1-3 anything. round 4-5 other countries, round 6-7 females. Can't use eras because of 45 year old retirement limit

- How many rounds? 16/18/20? More? 16

- Teams & Stables as one draft pick? If so, they'd have to be used as such? NO team picks or stables, create your own. Taking bullet club gives you a lot to go on in one shot unless you make a round where we could draft Stables and or tag teams.

- Set formula for shows at the end (e.g. three shows and a PPV)? or open for full creativity? Should be at least one PPV a month

- Strict time limits for draft picks? 12 hours? Draft boards? strict with 12 hours of last chosen with a cut off of 12am to 7am must take where the Gm lives into place.
- If possible, would you prefer the draft run through Discord? discord works wonderfully. Any of the mods can open a link for this.
