We started this league with a unique selling point of using real life players created in custom draft classes. While there are plenty of fictional leagues utilizing this engine available for GMs to join, this is the only one out there using draft classes comprised of real college players. We want to honor this commitment and continue using real life players as long as we possibly can.
There was also discussion about what to do when the CSFL catches up to the NFL in terms of draft classes being used in our league. At that point, I think we would still like to avoid using fictional players and the idea of using historic draft classes was brought up. What do people feel about that?
We started in 2010 in this league to allow us a decade-plus of draft classes to pile up for us to use. What if when we caught up we go back and start using draft classes from the 90's? After using up that decade, we could come back to real life and draft classes of 2024-2027 (rough estimate) in the NFL. Then when we catch up again, we could use NFL classes 2000-2009.
I'm really just spit-balling here. The decision is that we will not be using our fictional college players in the pro leagues yet, and potentially maybe never? We want to be transparent with that. But as for using historical classes, we would love to hear what you guys have to say.
While Cleasby, Dylan and I run the league, it's really the collection of GMs that make it "go" and we truly value everything you guys have to say and all of your input. Feel free to share any idea you have on this thread!
