  1. 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: 1951 "An Experiment in Expansion"

    congrats on Bolts for first win!

    extra points were no sure thing back then, esp in the rain.

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

    I live on the East Coast and they would always air the AFC West games at 4 o'clock. got to see a lot of that division. really fun group with memorable teams and rivalries. I like how they'd...

    1) agree. all sorts of shaky when you play early stuff.

    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...

    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...

    Re: 1951 "An Experiment in Expansion"

    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

    the NY Titans won the AFL (listed as NYJ)

    interesting

    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.

    not yet but its an idea

    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.
  19. 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...
