    As inconclusive as the results of the new simulations were, I'm still entirely unconvinced that this is an issue. However, while I agree with Goose's logic over YK's, it'd still be a rule change, and that wouldn't be appropriate.

    Either decide on one number and assign that number to everyone, or let the sim decide, then in the offseason we can revisit.

    With Shanny's vote going no right now it's 7-4 in favor of not using the rankings.

    I think it's safe to say we roll on without the rankings Goose, at least for this first year. We are all planning on coming back next year and continuing this sim for years to come, so we can always re-visit the issue.

    No problem. So, do we all agree to go with 6's? Or do we want to let the computer assign? Seems to me if we let the computer assign, it is the same problem of there being more ratings used in the game which were not disclosed prior to the season. Either way is fine with me.

    I like having 6's. It seems to wipeout these attritibutes as a factor while not effecting the results too much either way. Letting the computer decide is too unpredictable and people might "bitch".

    Ok, all 6's. And I really hope someone takes Matt Schaub and wins the whole thing ;)

    Just kidding, I'm not taking any of this personal. I totally understand the concern about changing the rules after we've started the game. Upward and onward.

    Now can we please get these last few rounds wrapped up? I'm ready to start playing some games!! More Proxies .... guys they really matter less and less now that we are down to special teamers and back-ups. No one is stealing your players. LEAVE PROXIES!!!

    Way to be Goose! You should get votes for POTY just for the shear # of hours you've put into this thing.

    I've been voting for him the last few months. Hasn't worked.
    As cliche as it may sound, I'd like to raise another round, and if your bottle's empty help yourself to mine, thank you for your time and here's to life.

    As a young girl I always dreamed of one day being the Playmate of the Year. Even the nomination is rather humbling.

    You've got to be a flipping liberal to get any respect over there. Bunch of uppity idealists.
