- Did APBA disks used to have a minimum 10 gp for forwards and 5 for
goalies? Damn, I am so TOTALLY BUMMED that Marcel Hossa got sent back
down after playing 10 games! He was just 2 games away! I've got him
in 2 of my leagues in the minor system just waiting to bust out (and
in one of the leagues I SEVERELY NEED his help!)
So, any chance of going back to 10/5 starting this disk?
Damn, didn't think so.
