can agree on losing interest.

dont want to step away just want to build another franchise from the ground up but it appears the only way for me to do that is to.. step away lol

Just trade all your players for picks and prospects. Boom complete tear down and build back from scratch.

Maybe you misunderstand my meaning of "from scratch" lol

I mean like the team I originally took over with no assets

Example:

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=3178#p69006

This team is improved from what I originally took over.

That seems to be the common comment when I mention this.

I don't enjoy trying to take the next step. I enjoy roster building.

Well how about building your roster into a legit contender then? Asset hoarding can be fun, but at some point you gotta start trading them in to make it count.

lee that roster would get you nowhere in the league now with the quality of gm's added. It's why those rosters don't exist anymore. Also, I find that to be bullshit. You could do some much to take the next step and switch up your roster.

Roster building from shit to average is only half the job of re-building a roster.
