I have to agree with this. With Gomez and Redden contracts coming off this year and a much lower number of real-life horrendous contracts, I feel like at this point the onus is on the GM to get everyone signed, and if anyone slips through on July 1st, then that's too bad.
you NEED one. Thats funny, because I have none and still finished higher, you dont NEED franchise players to have a successful TEAM.
1.) I suck at this game so I would like as many as I can reasonably have 2.) because of my terrible luckmy franchise players are usually taking turns getting injured for half of the season. You will probably win this argument so I'm going to admit defeat right now.
