    Re: Stealing Home

    Ultimately I want to Make TCL Great Again and that means activity. I’m for whatever adds activity, so against my better judgement I would vote for a change. Let’s find our next Luke, GBears or jpax. I like these guys. They are additive to our community and helping the vibe of the place. More of that. Pigge would be killer to have back but let’s also recruit new blood too. Some forum activity should be the Unwritten Golden Rule of the league.

    This looks like the holdout cell for a test. What would happen if you just did nothing?
    I guarantee this is going to make me laugh when this thread is dug up years from now. Let the record show that I was only talking about the last 100 seasons through 2119, where Prontera averaged about 80 wins, made the playoffs 13 times, and won a total of 5 series in those playoffs.

    Its eye opening. They haven't finished 1st in the division in 40 seasons. Once in 50 seasons and 3 times in 70 seasons. That's over 5 real life years. It might be time for a change.

    EDIT: And only 7 times in the entire 140 seasons. I need to recount that.. that's terrible.

    also, have won at least 69 games for 44 years (SPC with 11 such seasons in same time period) and haven't lost fewer than 65 in, uh, 65 seasons. least essential franchise for sure.

    That's the point Luke was making above. No strikes. Impossible to argue with that.

    Jelly was just making the point of the team languishing.

    Consistently average with no rings, or boom and bust with a bunch..... pretty much a long standing discussion in this league with no conclusion.

    It’s a little different than that, Mak. It’s essentially unmanaged for 100+ seasons.

    Unmanaged didn't pick up penalty strikes and active management picked up a ton of penalty strikes for the following boom. That's what I was saying.

    Regardless that isn't the full point of ownership imo. At least bring something, as we've said many times, game or forum. Neither is when it's a problem for me. In this specific case I'm in your boat already, as resistant as I've been to it in the past.

    The former condition was the way I generally managed my teams and even openly admitted I was playing the game for the community aspect and going through the motions on the managerial side of things. Then again, unlike soldats, I provided a robust forum presence and stepped aside in the one league of mine [CBF] that had a reasonably long waiting list.
