Do our NBL reps carry over? Or at least our relationships with agents?

as much as the MLB existed in NBL... it's not off limits, but we wont be referencing Peyton Manning or anything... unless you get a scouting report that makes a reference to a legit player for better clarity.

ESPN News wont be talking about the NFL, but it may talk about "another" pro league.

I'd rather people just come in and accept their previous mistakes.  No one will be slammed for having trouble in times past.  If you had a great rep, you'll still have a good rep, but the folks who weren't having the best reps in the world, you'll be started semi-fresh but sometimes agents etc may reference things in the past.  No one will be playing with enemies from NBL.

If that makes sense.  I'd prefer you all just go with the names and characters you've been in NBL, because this isn't a GM character driven game, it's a reputation and relationship management game.

When we sign on with a team, will we get "scouting reports" on the players we already have on the team?

I assume we must get something otherwise we might get FA/Draft happy and accidently drop our A+ player because we didn't like his name or something silly.

I'd settle for there being fairly generic team breakdown posts (Stars/key players, weak links, current playstyle etc.) in the team threads for when we start applying.

That way we'd know the best & worst players on the team, but have little info on the middle order. Would also allow GMs to pick a team of their desired background (e.g. a rebuild team, a win now team, a "one big thing from success" team). For everyone else, maybe a "coach ranking" by position once we've got the job and selected our coaches?

Just riffing ideas that allow us to get what we want, but not in a 100% guaranteed form.

Nice.

Will lineman (o and d), linebackers, and safeties get one sheet each or will it be broken down into each position within the groups?

Once all teams have a GM coaching interviews will begin.  Take your time talking to coaches (unless you immediately know you dont want/like them) because I have work to do on the free agents and on the rules/mechanics write ups I want to do to help everyone understand the game, so I'm not trying to rush into the player interaction process.

Once I start the draft and/or free agency the game will be 100% online and running and you can do whatever you want to try.
