    • i was hoping perhaps, to have an expansion on roster sizes. I definitely understand putting a roster cap in the tiered worlds, as the more a higher tier team hoards players, the lower levels will suffer in quality of players. So i get that and wouldn't really ask for those to be expanded. My request would be for the North American style world. I still understand having the roster cap, spread the quality of players out, but i was wondering if maybe the cap could be expanded by say......5 players? My roster has the required 20 players you need to fill up a nightly lineup, then i like to keep a scratched centre, 2 scratched wingers (one each hand) and 2 scratched D (one each hand), that makes 25 players, this only leaves 5 spaces available for development players. Now, you need a 3rd goalie on hand in case one of yours gets hurt, you could use a development goalie for this, but if you're going to need him to serve as a backup for a long period of time, he won't get much playing time, which could hamper his development. So, if you decide to bring in a stronger, older 3rd stringer, that leaves 4 places for development players. As a manager that likes to build through the draft and develop from within, I feel like this just isn't enough. Adding another 5 players to the roster limit would allow for 9 total spots, 1 goalie, 3 D, 5 forwards (or however you want to arrange it) this seems a little more congruent to a proper development system. Another issue is the Farm club player status. Most of my players on the farm club get really tired all the time, because of this, if my main roster players are tired and need a need a day off, i can't just promote a player from the farm to cover for a game because they are all tired, hence the reason i keep extra's scratched on my roster. But i don't want to keep younger, development players as healthy scratches for the progress hindering reasons I mentioned above. If the farm player usage issue could be fixed so that they were always fit, it would solve my player development issues a bit, allowing for development players to be in the farm, getting play time, and then can be called up when i need them to fill in, it would erase the need to keep some older healthy scratches on the roster taking up contracts.
    • Dec. 20, 2029: Louisiana State Tigers (6-4) vs #11 ranked Boston College Eagles (8-2) at Silvio O. Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, MA WEEI Radio Game Broadcast (excerpts) *After winning their first 8 games this season, the Eagles have looked terrible in the last 2 games.  They’ve dropped from 6th to 11th in the polls.  They need to rally their spirits and get back on track as conference play nears. *While it’s true that both losses were to very good ranked teams, a 21 point loss at home is cause for concern. *LSU’s losses have been to Louisville, #16 ranked Wisconsin, Saint Louis, and Georgetown. *Starting tonight for the hometown Boston College Eagles are: Bobby Grannum at PG, Corey Graham at SG, Darius Hein at SF, Danny Toliver at PF, and Courtland Reese at C. *Corey Graham drills a 3 to put the Eagles on top 18-11 with 12:40 remaining in the half.  Graham has hit 4 of 5 shot and has 10 points. *Grannum whips the ball over to Minahan.  Minaham passes across the lane to Glen Robinson.  Robinson drives and pulls up to the left of the foul line.  His 16 footer jumper drops through to make it 24-11 in favor of the Eagles.  LSU calls a time out with 11:26 to go in the half.  BC has now hit 11 of their 16 shots. *Bobby Grannum called for a reach in foul.  That’s 2 on Grannum.  That’ll bring in Rashon Thorn to replace Grannum. *The fouls are mounting up on BC.  That’s 2 apiece on BC’s PG’s Grannum, Robinson, and Thorn. *Good pass by Moss into Tim Cotton. Cotton’s 14 footer on the right edge of the lane and Cottom puts up a contested shot that rolls around and falls through.  Its good making it 43-28.  *The half ends.  Boston College in charge with a 48-30 lead.  The Eagles knocked down 59% of their shots while holding the Tigers’ shooting to just 25%.  BC’s offense was led by Corey Graham’s 12 points and C Courtland Reese who scored 10. *The Eagles inbound the ball to start the 2nd half.  Grannum shoots the ball over to Graham who pops in another shot to give BC a 20 point lead. *BC’s reserves playing some solid defense.  LSU is having a difficult time scoring. *Grannum drives then kicks the ball back to Gardner who’s free at the line…his shot settles cleanly through the hoop to make it 69-44 with 5 minutes left in the game. *That’s the end of the game.  The final score is Boston College-81, LSU-59.  The Eagles dominated all aspects of the game. *C Courtland Reese was high point man with 22 points.  SG Corey Graham tossed in 14 points.  C Tim Cotton dropped in 12 points.
