Upgrading to 7.1 after the season

We will upgrade after the season as always, if you are in other league. Go ahead and upgrade, it's not a problem. If you are on 7.1 and the commish is on 7.0b, it will work.

We will upgrade after the season as always.

skydog did some research and here's what he found;

I've done some testing on this (thanks to PackerFanatic for the help), and I'm pretty sure now that here's how it works.

1. If the commish is on 7.1, then the league is simmed as a 7.1 league. If the commish is on 7.0b, then the league is simmed as a 7.0b league. In terms of which engine is used, it does not matter what the participants are on.

2. If you are a participant and the commish is using 7.1, then you MUST upgrade to 7.1 in order to import the league files. You will receive error messages otherwise.

3. If you are a participant and the commish is using 7.0b, you can be on either 7.0b OR 7.1 and successfully import the league files and send in exports.

4. If you are a participant and are on 7.1 while your league commish is on 7.0b, you will see different salary cap numbers than you actually have, due to the veteran minimum being different in 7.0b vs. 7.1.

5. (NOTE: This one is untested as of now, but based on past experience, this one is VERY likely to be true, especially given that we know that the veteran minimum has changed.) If you are a participant and are on 7.1 while your league commish is on 7.0b, the contract requests that you see will be incorrect. There will be times that you see a player requesting a contract, you submit the requested offer, and he rejects it. That's because the offer is processed on the commish machine, which is on a different version.



Reupload your Week 8 Stage file, SIM delayed until friday.

Something happened at 2pm today and all the uploads disappeared for Week 8.

Funny thing was, I was at work and had no access to the game so someone would have had to logon as commish and download the stage file through their game. Also they reuploaded the system file so that messed up the stage. I fixed that but couldn't recovers everyones stage file.

Please NO ONE LOG ON AS COMMISH through the game, you can really mess up the stages and the whole league, it's a pain in the ass to fix.

Everyone please upload your files again and I'll run the SIM on friday.



2040 Predictions

Fri Oct 17 10:54 AM

1. Predict your team's record

11-5 I restructured the Team and Hope to make the playoffs.

2. Predict the winner of your division

Gonna be close between us and Durham

I'm going Omaha

3. Predict the CFL bowl winner

Going with a Dark Horse: Death Valley, they added Goodwin WR and Adamo RB.

Other predictions:

- We'll have two 1000 yard runners this year.

- Lyle will Omaha's first back to back 1000 yard receiver

- Stoner for ACI will break the 10 sack total playing WLB this year.

- Adamo will get 1500+ yards for DVY

1. Predict your team's record

7-9 We have an unproven QB backed up by a host of unproven QB's. Not sure what to expect . . .

I don't see playoffs in the cards for us this year.

2. Predict the winner of your division

San Antonio - too strong.

3. Predict the CFL bowl winner

Hartford - Their team is still strong.

Other predictions:

- Shreveport starts 3 different QB's this year.

- Shreveport hits +20 on the t/o ratio. We specifically focussed on bringing in Heavy Hitters and Ball Hawks onto the team this year. Quite disappointed with our showing last year. It will be hard with a new QB holding onto the ball too long, though.

- WR Wally Wooden needs ~1400 yards to be the all time receiving leader (yards) and he gets it. I think he'd need another year to capture the all time receptions record.

by Raven Hawk at Fri Oct 17, 2014 01:46 PM

TEXAS INFERNO (gotta figure out how to get an avatar on here and a cool banner if possible to identify my posts)
1. Predict your record: 6-10 Having just joined the league I haven't researched our divisional foes much yet but I feel like we have a lot of holes and some aging players at key positions. A veteran QB will be good enough to beat up the weak sisters of the league but not good enough to elevate a team of mediocre talents above the good teams.

2. Predict our division winner: I cannot say as I don't have the correct team names on my game yet so once I get that sorted out I can make a prediction without seeming like a total moron.

3. Predict the CFL Bowl winner: see above

Random Predictions:
1. Reese will be in the top 5 of pass attempts despite our amazing depth at RB. Our defense is going to have us playing from behind some and he will be forced to chuck it up despite our desire.

2. C Shannon Copeland will go out strong with an All-CFL quality season despite the relatively weak offensive line surrounding him.

by BazookaJohnny at Sat Oct 18, 2014 09:39 AM

TEAM: St Louis Arch

1. Predict your team's record

4-12. No decent QB and avg runners so this will be a year of restructuring

2. Predict the winner of your division

Omaha

3. Predict the CFL bowl winner

No idea since I am not familiar with the other teams outside my division (yet).

Other predictions:

- CB Kirk Davis goes for 3 (or more) Kick Return TD's

by kavdrpoo at Sun Oct 19, 2014 05:21 AM

1. Predict your team's record

8-8 I thought we had a good team last year but we went 7-9. This year we have a worse team on paper so surely that's worth an extra win.

2. Predict the winner of your division

I refuse to pick Omaha, so let's go with Baltimore

3. Predict the CFL bowl winner

Tulsa. Yep, all-world punter Quentin Godfrey gets a ring.

Other predictions:

- In week 16 we face Tucson where 2nd year CB Kent Goodwin Jr. faces Dad's team for the first time. He sabotages the game for us and gets cut in the offseason.

- QB Desmond Cobb passes Kenneth Lester in most career interceptions to hold every team passing record there is (does most interceptions really count?). Not bad for a 7th round pick (and 7.31 at that!)

- DE Matthew Burton falls short of the 14 sacks he needs to surpass Motormouth Vazquez for the most sacks by a DE in team history. But still, not bad for an undrafted FA (Burton, we all know Motormouth was a 1st round pick as he mentions it all the time)

- Our pass defense continues to be our downfall (we allowed more passing yards than any team in the league last year). We regret letting FS Conrad Peterson leave in free agency.

by Taco at Sun Oct 19, 2014 02:11 PM

1. 9-7
2. Tucson - After a year off they figure out FOF7 and return to the top of the division despite a close race with Vegas.
3. San Antonio - The pieces finally come together and Shooter stays away enough to keep the arrow pointed very up.

by TurfToe at Sun Oct 19, 2014 08:45 PM

1. Predict your team's record

14-2

2. Predict the winner of your division

Tulsa if we can find a way to beat Denver.

3. Predict the CFL bowl winner

I'm gonna go with Tulsa. I hope.

by bbriders at Mon Oct 20, 2014 05:31 PM

1. Predict your team's record

9-7 and miss the playoffs

2. Predict the winner of your division

Can't bet against Hartford

3. Predict the CFL bowl winner

Hartford to get another title

Other predictions:

- ACI will have two 1000 yard runners this year (just like Omaha!)

Atlantic City Team Preview

1 comment


rbeyer
Mon Oct 13 12:09 PM

Defense: The Atlantic City defense has been the strength of the team for years and this season is no exception. A strong showing is a necessity if the team is going to contend for a playoff spot.


Defensive Ends

- LDE - Mike Hipp - 10th year - 54/54
- RDE - Curtis Borders - 5th year - 48/48
- LDE - Nathan Romanos - 7th year - 39/39
- RDE - Ryan Walsh - 8th year - 26/26

Hipp enters his 10th year as the starting left defensive end and has been a steady, yet unspectacular player. He had 6.5 sacks last season, which is his highest total since he had 9 in his rookie season. Borders enters his 3rd season as the starting right end and his main job is to stop the run. A 92 run defense rating makes him an excellent choice. Romanos joined ACI last year and has decent pass rushing abilities but has not been a big sack guy. For 2040, he is the defensive front leader. Walsh has good run defense numbers but would be replaced if the team had any cap dollars available.


Defensive Tackles

- NT - Norbert Umphenour - 8th year - 35/35
- NT - Joseph Weikel - 5th year - 39/39
- NT - Ellis Weyand - 2nd year - 16/39

The retirement of Darren Richardson is the biggest note at the nose tackle spot. Richardson spent 12 years in Atlantic City and ranks #1 all -time for starts, 2nd in hurries and 3rd in sacks. He will be missed. Umphenour has the job of replacing Richardson, and should be a good run defender. The one difference is that Umphenour is not a pass rushing nose tackle. Weikel was signed this year to provide another option and is also a good run defender who should push for more playing time as the season goes on. Weyand is a project who was signed due to his run defense potential.


Linebackers

- SILB - Dominic Castillo - 6th year - 85/85
- SLB - Corey Fisher - 7th year - 77/77
- WILB - Ellis Oland - 4th year - 31/31
- WLB - Edwin Stoner - 11th year - 59/59
- SLB - Earnest Malicki - 7th year - 41/41
- SLB - Omar Feeley - 5th year - 35/35
- WLB - Blaine Harper - 5th year - 39/39

The strength of the defense continues to be Castillo and Fisher. Castillo was named the teams designated player and signed to a one year deal. He was named an all-league 1st team inside linebacker in 2039 so he deserved every penny. Fisher was named to the all-league 2nd team in 2039 and led the team with 11 sacks. After winning a championship in Omaha, Stoner returns home thanks to a pre-draft trade. He was quickly moved from WILB to WLB, where he will try his hand at pass rushing. Oland is a run defending specialist who also is an excellent special team player. With a lot of passing teams in the league, Oland will be replaced in the nickel package about 70% of the plays. Malicki is a good all-around player who can spell Fisher on occasion. He is not happy as a backup but dude, you are playing behind one of the best linebackers in the league so chill! Harper is listed as a WLB but may see plenty of time at WILB due to excellent run defending skills. Feeley is a backup at both inside spots.


Safeties

- SS - Chris Parrish - 5th year - 42/42
- FS - Zach Dallesandro - 6th year - 44/44
- FS - Kerry Hanson - 8th year - 38/38
- SS - Leroy Talley - 5th year - 39/39
- FS - Neil Riffel - 6th year - 37/37

Long time safety Wendell Myrick was not resigned so this position is in a state of flux. Parrish enters his second season at ACI and gets his first chance as a starter. He is a solid overall player across his ratings. Dallesandro was one of the bigger free agent signings for the Phantoms and brings experience to the safety spot. A career 80%+ pass defense percentage was a big reason why he was given a $14 million dollar, 3 year deal. Hanson is a good pass defending safety who can step in as a starter but is not long term solution. Talley started 3 games for Atlantic City in 2039 but is better suited to backup duty. Riffel is another free agent signing that really excites the team due to his excellent zone defense skills.


Cornerbacks

- RCB - Ralph Myers - 5th year - 58/58
- LCB- Brent DiStefano - 10th year - 49/49
- LCB - Leo Pasquarella - 9th year - 45/45
- RCB - Allen Gilmore - 5th year - 41/41
- LCB - Lukas McAleese - R - 17/26

Myers, a first round pick in 2036, continues get better and better ratings wise and is not the top corner on the roster. DiStefano has been a pleasant surprise and boasts an 82% pass defense percentage at the other corner spot. It seems like every other year Pasquarella tests free agency and then returns to ACI. I am not sure if that is a good or bad sign. Anyway, he is a good run defender and zone coverage guy who should see plenty of time as the nickel back. Gilmore has been a nice surprise as a backup corner / dime back. McAleese was a 5th round flyer in the draft who, so far, has a big bag of nothing. I hope he enjoys his one season in Atlantic City because he will be gone at the end of the year.

Atlantic City Draft Analysis

1 comment

Thu Sep 25 11:17 AM

Atlantic City finished the 2039 season 7-9, thanks to a 3 game winning streak at the end of the year. Rumors spread that the Phantoms were in the hunt for an elite TE (though they eventually were outbid) so it appears the two-TE offense will remain the offensive strategy. With the continued inability to get a top flight WR, ACI may look to run the ball more in 2040.


First Round

Jeffrey Emack

Image

RB - Southern Mississippi - 6' 0" - 224 lbs
1st Round. Pick #1-12. #12 Overall
Pre-Draft Grade: 7.20
Pre-Draft Adjusted Grade: 7.20
Key Combine Scores: Solecismic 29, 40 Time 4.51, Bench Reps 21, Agility 7.11, Position Drill 30
Actuals: 58/71

Atlantic City came within one pick of possibly solving their wide receiver needs as Caleb Purnell dropped to pick #11 but was quickly snatched up by Albany. The Phantoms then went with the best player on their board, who will be a huge help in the running game. Emack is a big back who will split time with returning 1,000+ yard rusher J.R. Brustkern.



Second Round

Zion Price

Image

FB - Oregon St. - 5' 11" - 224 lbs
2nd Round. Pick #2-11. #43 Overall
Pre-Draft Grade: 4.50
Pre-Draft Adjusted Grade: 4.50
Key Combine Scores: Solecismic 29, 40 Time 4.67, Bench Reps 25, Broad Jump 9' 5", Position Drill 37
Actuals: 25/53

The Phantoms continue to look to improve their run game with the selection of Price. Leo Hastings was the target with this pick but he was selected by St. Louis at 2-4. Price had excellent combines and should be a future replacement for the aging Hunter Dail.

Fifth Round

Lukas McAleese

Image

CB - Iowa - 5' 11" - 189 lbs
5th Round. Pick #5-16. #144 Overall
Pre-Draft Grade: 5.40
Pre-Draft Adjusted Grade: 5.40
Key Combine Scores: Solecismic 27, Agility 27
Actuals: 15/30

McAleese is a bit on the small side but his combine / bars point to a possible nickel back. He looks to be an excellent zone defender with exceptional ball skills.



Seventh Round

Brant Flannery

Image

QB - Colorado - 6' 3" - 233 lbs
7th Round. Pick #7-13. #206 Overall
Pre-Draft Grade: 4.60
Pre-Draft Adjusted Grade: 4.60
Key Combine Scores:
Actuals: 11/45

Atlantic City drafted a project in Flannery. Combines were not great but the bars look pretty good. That is usually the makings of a flop but in the 7th round it is worth the chance.
