- No doubt it is rather difficult finalizing the disk when the heart of
summer beckons. Just curious as to whether we are hour to hour or
day to day at this point. All the members of our league are phoning
me every hour asking for THE NEWS...
Thanks as always for the tremendous efforts of all those involved.
- It seems most leagues have become a bit more patient in waiting for
the disk this year. That's great. It's the way it should be. We all
want the best game possible.
For any leagues getting impatient waiting for the disk because they
want to do their draft, I have a suggestion. Do your draft before the
disk comes out. This requires the teams to do some homework into the
players they want. To find out if he's good defensively or needs a
road map to find his own end. To find out if he's a good passer,
shotblocker, hitter etc. You want realism, this is it. Waiting for
ratings would be like an NHL team having no scouting department and
just running down the Central Scouting list to make their picks.
Yes, you may find that when the ratings come out a player is not as
good defensively or as fast as you thought. Guess what? That's
in real life too. If scouting reports were guarantees, Alexandre
Daigle would be one of the best players in the league right now. But
the more research you do, the more likely you are to get the type of
player you want.
Reward the teams that do their homework. Don't hand everything (the
ratings) to them on a silver platter.
- I know, I know.... patience grasshopper.
The suspense is killing me. Please forgive me but this is the most
anticipated date of the year, Christmas is overrated by comparison.
I need help.
Yes, I am an APBA hockey addict... and I don't want to be cured.
- Still got a couple weeks of test/tweak to go. Things aren't converging smoothly in some cases this year.
Is it too soon to inquire about an ETA on the disk? Thanks
