I do agree with both Skacore and DD, though. It's really unfair to sign FAs to just trade them, even if they're your own FAs.

I don't know, I'll look into it after this season is over, but I can't do anything about this past offseasons signings now.
Yeah, nothing to do about it now. I think the simplest quick fix would be like we were saying, we agree on an overall (say 82+), then agree on a time slot (5 sims, trade deadline, whole season) and make a small list on the 1st page. It's not that much work as there's usually only 10-15 or so guys who will fit that criteria and they'll all be gone by the 1st or maybe 2nd day of FA.

or instead just give away giroux for nothing.

Thats the luxury of a video game.

You dont hurt players feelings by trading them immediately after you've signed them or acquired them.

I have already traded Giroux and he has played 3 games for me.

Unrealistic, but a necessity since the EA engine is what it is.

People play this game to enjoy it and trading is part of it.

Overall's are not always what they seem, and sometimes a player doesn't quite play up to said attributes.

People use what they feel comfortable with and can perform with.

Again, its a video game that people play to kill some spare time.

So who really cares if someone has a line up full of 70's or 90's. To each their own as long as they enjoy the team and are a productive member of the league.

yes and its not as enjoyable when you cant get good players to play with because they're signed in UFA by teams that made the playoffs and then given away to other teams.

Thats your fault for not offering them more!

If you dont have the cap space, again thats your fault for not managing the your cap right if you truly wished to pick that player up.

There is ALWAYS going to be someone that offers a big name player WELL over their asking price (me), which could equal to be the max.

And there always will be someone that flips that asset immediately to address other needs.

Its just how it is, and if you want said player, pay up!
