    random pictures don't match

    I notice the game adds random player pictures in the 60s

    I had a player named Rountree with a picture of Tom Flores (in his fifties, in a Raiders jacket)

  3. no playoffs in 1964 with three divisions / wild card

    FM 2020 17.0.2

    playing as 1961 Cardinals. in 1964 I change league to three divisions and a wild card. will not run playoffs.
    I'm guessing it won't do any WCs till 67.

    Re: My thoughts on Football Mogul

    1) agree. all sorts of shaky when you play early stuff.
    2) my system lists Jonathan Ogden as a guard. he played guard one year and became a HOF tackle. some players in FM don't track nearly like...

    Re: 1951 "An Experiment in Expansion"

    can you imagine how many free agents were around with only 10-12 teams?

    I suspect lots of smaller schools never got scouted.
    and a lot of teams back then didn't scout colleges at all, they just...

    scenario in which I played the Baltimore Colts from 1981 and kept them in the AFC East.

    now in 2001 my schedule plays AFC North games
    and my graphics show as Ravens

    Re: NAFL: "Bolts charge ahead in '75"

    Oakland has ruined San Diego's day (in football) for many many years.

    theoretically Allen could move the Raiders to SD. probly a better market than Vegas.

    NFL like musical chairs with 32 teams...

    good stuff
    intercoastal games were a challenge back then. the Colts were in the NFL West and had to take a train to California every year to play the Rams and 49ers.

    Position player placekickers

    in the old days not unusual for position players like Lou Michaels and Steve Myrha to double as placekickers

    looks like they don't have that ability on this game.

    Re: Schedules

    sometimes I juggle the number of games and I end up not having two divisional games
    or playing the same team three times
    wish there was an override

    Gino Marchetti had an interception
    and Lenny Moore had two TDs

    the NY Titans won the AFL (listed as NYJ)

    Re: Creating a 32 team league in 1951?

    hm, the LA Chargers are listed as 'SD'

    I don't think players were making 200k back then

    system would not let me create an AFC
    tried to add AFC divisions and it maxed out at 18 teams per conference.

  20. Re: freezes on games wi team names/cities change

    well...maybe not
    tried it again. game stuck for a while and I forgot about it, came back five minutes later, all was okay.
    apparently it just needs time to think about it.
  21. freezes on games wi team names/cities change

    tried an alternate league, changed cities / team names. mostly kept division.
    can do this and play maybe one season but freezes after draft.
    often freezes when trying to remove a team (system lets...
