As for the contract comments a couple people have mentioned. There seems to be some merit to it. I will say however, I've had a couple guys I've been able to sign to 1.4 million deals (8yrs) and they've gone on to become very good. Where it certainly does come into play is the guys asking for crazy dollars. Morrissey for instance in my first gm mode progressed extremely fast. Im currently on my second GM, he's only something like a 72 at 24 yrs old. If you go into his contract renewal though, years 5-8 are huge numbers. So you know he'll still progress. For whatever reason, it's slower than before. Maybe due to me drafting him this time and my "asst coach" wasnt full yet. Not sure.
asst coach no longer affects growth.
