  1. Hello again EFL, With the recent announcement of @MMFLEXstepping down, we have been searching for a worthy successor for the Minnesota Frontier. Today we are proud to introduce a new member to our GM ranks: @saladani! Please give him a big congratulations! But that's not all! We also have a new AD to announce as well. @Lemorse7 recently expressed his desire to step down from ADing the Manchester Lookout. We would like to thank him for the excellent work he's done for us in the role. Taking his place is a relatively new member who has made a positive impact on the community already and is ready to take on more responsibility. Please give a big congratulations to @CrookedAnt! Lemorse will also be staying on as AAD at this time to help Ant adjust to the role and provide a smooth handoff. Once again please give a big congrats to our new GM and AD!

  2. Hello EFL, as you may have seen, ECFA Predictions were processed today, and you can claim however much TPE you got by clicking on the Predictions button on your EFLO player page. However, the thing that we use to input predictions did not allow us to input the KRotY winner (Destiknee Willicams) for KRotY, so as a result, we have decided to give you all 3 free TPE because of this error, whether you did it or not! It can be claimed under the Giveaways button on your player page (it's called ECFA Predictions) and can be claimed until the end of this regular season (October 21). Thanks for your understanding and have a great day!

  3. My Season 37 EFL Power Rankings I didn’t do a power rankings last season, but I would have been both right and wrong. I probably would have put New York #1 and Minnesota #2, and during the regular season, both of those would have been solid picks. However, the playoffs are a different beast. Miami, who I probably would have put third due to an aging core, upset New York. And Seattle, who I probably would have had out of the playoffs, ended up winning the whole thing. All of that is to say: I have no idea what I’m doing here. But it’s fun to speculate anyway. Here’s my best guess for the EFL power rankings heading into the season, with a few holes and free agents left to be decided. 8. Los Angeles Reign: The rebuild is fully underway, and it’s working fairly well - particularly in the secondary. First round picks Stetson David and Blake Wilson will make for a strong defensive core of the future, and Rex Rider is a strong QB prospect. But with nobody for Rider to throw to, and very little in the linebacking corps, L.A. is still shooting for a number one pick. 7. Seattle Predators: Sigh. They’re really going to make me do this, huh? Look, the Predators overachieved relative to APE last season, and there’s always a chance that they’re going to do so again (particularly in a weaker West). But with no more Fourside, only four players above 350 APE (including zero in the secondary), and top players Marteau, Big and Norris being mostly MIA with respect to earning, I suppose I’m taking my chances putting them here. 6. Wisconsin Brigade: The good news: An aggressive FA market could net them players like linebacker Martillo Táctico and tight end Sphyrna Lewis. The bad news: If you have the $10M to win the bid on Táctico, it probably says something about your depth. The linebacking corps + Cutthroat’s playmaking will keep them in games, but Maple and the rookie Pikachu are still a bit too raw for me to consider them a real threat. 5. San Francisco Frenzy: They’ve made some trades over the offseason to stock up for the future. But the good news for San Francisco fans is, in a weaker West, they still have the pieces to contend. Algren may be really feeling his age, but Firpo has developed into a true #1 option. Moon is still around as the backbone of the secondary, with Makaratt looking solid as well. Ivanov and Backer are an above average LB duo. I don’t think they have the depth to be a title contender, but they’ll be in games. 4. Toronto Skyhawks: Luck of the draw doesn’t help them here - if the Skyhawks were in the West, I’d probably be calling them a playoff team. But regardless, I think this will be a much improved Skyhawks team from what we’ve seen in recent seasons. Grey, Kentucky and Taylor are a formidable backbone to a defense, Isaac’s looking like a future MVP candidate, and I really like the Dusty Wilson addition to the offense. I wouldn’t be shocked by a 8-10 win season. 3. Miami Neptune: By pure APE, the Skyhawks probably have the Neptune outpaced. But I know better than to count out Miami at this point. Carswell is a pretty washed up QB, but you don’t need much when you’re throwing to Colt and Kirkland. Snark has developed into an LBotY candidate, and Meatball’s gotten CBotY consideration. And what really sets them apart for me is depth: 12 players above 440 APE at current count. They’re always in contention, and I don’t see why that’d change now. 2. Minnesota Frontier: I’m very scared to jinx anything, especially after last season’s playoff collapse. But by pure talent, Minnesota has a contender. The secondary may be the best in the league with Mac Suibhne, Newsome and Dvorsky, re-signing Colt was clutch to shore up their front seven alongside Malinpa, and this could be the season Lunatia takes a leap to being a top-flight QB. Losing Empire hurts, but the rookie RB Bumper is a solid replacement. All the pieces are here - but can they put them all together for the first time? 1. New York Herd: The Herd probably think they should have had it last season. They very well could this year after a one season delay. Everett is probably the MVP favorite, given his bevy of weapons with Wilinsky, Kolisi and the still-dangerous veteran Olaf. The defense is aging, to be sure, but Snicket, Dillinger and Farmar can still get it done. Isaac in his second year really bolsters that secondary as well. The rest of the linebacking corps worries me a bit, but every team has holes - and the Herd have fewer to me than any other team in the league.

  5. My Long, Probably Wrong S37 EFL Mock Draft I’ll readily admit: I haven’t been keeping the closest tabs on the upcoming EFL Draft class. Part of that was a life schedule that has been particularly busy over the last month. The other part of that is a benefit of having only one player on a relatively good team. If there’s one person that probably shouldn’t be writing a mock draft, it’s me. Which, naturally: Here’s a mock draft. The above is a long-winded way of saying that you should take much of this seriously, particularly when it comes to interpersonal relationships and who wants to play for who. I’m also not too up on potential carryover TPE if it’s not already claimed. Instead, I’m primarily doing these rankings based on TPE and projected team needs, and if something is off there, my bad. Also, with so many GM picks, I’m expecting a lot of trades to happen in the first round. I’m not mocking them either - though I wouldn’t be surprised if Toronto and Wisconsin in particular pull the trigger to get GM players on their team in the late first in some fashion. Now with that said, let’s get to mocking! Here are full descriptions for the first round, with much shorter descriptions for the second round as the players are above 200 TPE. 1. Los Angeles Reign: FS Stetson David, @oilmandan, Athens Carnage The worst team in the EFL last season by four games, the Reign are in full rebuild mode and could use a bit of everything… possibly. There’s an argument to be made that the only place where they’re already doing halfway decently is the secondary, where cornerbacks Jason Grant and Thomas Thomas are still on contract for next season. I don’t buy it. Both of those players are already in regression and primed to be shipped off, and the Reign should be taking best player available regardless. One may question whether David is fully committed after his agency disconnected from the New York franchise, but a nearly 200 TPE lead among non-GM rookies as of this writing is hard to argue against. I think you take the talent and let the rest sort itself out. Plus, they have other firsts to take more risks later. 2. Wisconsin Brigade: RB Jean Luc Pikachu, @Cornholio, Savage City Wraiths A 5-9 season isn’t actually that bad for a team that’s still rebuilding from its Kelley heyday, but I’m sure they’ll not mind a second overall draft selection regardless. Pikachu is a one-cut RB who’s probably destined for a career at receiver, making him the natural number one receiver to the recently drafted Dogwood Maple for the long haul. As a GM player, Pikachu is going to end up in Wisconsin in some form no matter where it is in the first round, so don’t be shocked by a trade down. My guess is L.A. trading up to get the top two picks in the draft, possibly through the New York pick, or perhaps a Minnesota trading up for Bumper. But since I’m not mocking trades, it all comes out in the wash anyway. 3. Toronto Skyhawks: RB Dusty Wilson, @dustywilson22, Hades Creek Phalanx The Skyhawks are really a team in need of a major boost however they can get it. And let’s get the obvious out of the way: There’s a GM pick sitting right there with one-cut RB Landen Smith. But I think the Skyhawks need to take some big swings, which is why I’m not mocking him here. The defense is about there, especially if a newly-revived Bones Kentucky re-signs. On offense, last year’s first round pick Martin Isaac II is a great step, but if an eighth-year Curtis Taylor is his only real weapon on offense (if he’s even there assuming Smith is coming to the EFL), that’s a problem. Wilson is a natural fit in that regard, no matter whether you’re playing him as a workhorse back like he was in Hades Creek, or if he moves out wide to be Isaac’s main target for the future. Suddenly, the Toronto offense looks in a lot better shape than it might have even two seasons ago. And if Toronto’s able to trade back into the first to get both Wilson and Smith, even better. 4. Los Angeles Reign (from San Francisco): CB Blake Wilson, @dustywilson22, Hades Creek Phalanx When San Francisco traded this pick and its S38 first in order to get Harry Dillinger, I’m going to guess they didn’t think a 7-7 season and missing the playoffs was in the cards. But San Francisco’s loss is the Reign’s gain with the fourth pick in the draft. I have the other Wilson here, and there’s two keys to understanding this pick. The first is that the Reign have three firsts, and they’re locked to a wide receiver in Rex Ryder with the next selection. The second is what I talked about earlier - I’m not sold that Grant and Thomas are on the team long-term, so I’m not worried about grabbing two players in the secondary. It’s Wilson slightly over Lamar King here. 5. Minnesota Frontier: RB Billy Bumper, @MMFLEX, Manchester Lookout I mentioned earlier that the Frontier might want to trade up to grab the player who used to be their GM pick, and there’s a solid chance that he’s still taken earlier. But in this scenario, he falls to the Minnesota Frontier anyway. There are enough questions about whether he’ll be around for the long-term, particularly after stepping away from Minnesota, that I could see teams not wanting to take a chance when there’s a surer bet like Wilson sitting right there. But Bumper’s an extremely high-ceiling prospect, and I could see Minnesota taking the risk to replace the recently retired Eden Empire. 6. Los Angeles Reign (from New York): WR Rex Rider, @Adrest245, Trenton Generals With their third selection in the first round, the Reign finally take advantage of their GM pick with Rex Rider. Rider wouldn’t necessarily have a QB to throw to him quite yet, but I’m honestly not as worried about that - with the glut of QBs coming into the league last draft class, and some top prospects like Big Ben Burger and Venice Cruz waiting in the wings, the Reign are going to have their young QB of the future here soon enough. I mentioned earlier that the Reign might want to package this pick to move up, but I could also see the opposite here with the GM pick in tow. If, say, a Wilson falls and the winner of the EFL title game wants to ensure getting him, hopping up two picks is certainly in play. 7. Seattle Predators: FS Destinkee Willicams, @omgitshim, Biscayne Bay Pirates Of course, this could either be Seattle or Miami pending the result of the EFL Title Game. I’m betting on Seattle missing out, because betting against Miami is a fool’s errand. If that’s the case, though, Willicams is a solid consolation prize with the GM pick. The secondary was one of the weak spots for the Predators during the regular season, allowing the third-most passing yards in the entire league. And of course, their longtime secondary stalwart Renata Gonçalves is in his 13th season (if he doesn’t retire). Willicams would provide an instant and necessary youth boost. There’s an off-chance that they would pass on the GM pick and grab Lamar King here, but I don’t buy it right now. I also wouldn’t be shocked here if someone like Wisconsin or Toronto wants to trade back into the first round for a GM pick, allowing Seattle to take Willicams early in the second round. But as with anything, that’s a risk. 8. Miami Neptune: CB Lamar King, @Youngbuck, Athens Carnage With the final pick in the first round (though just the fifth pick not including GMs), the projected champs Neptune grab what could be a steal. King has as much TPE as players I’ve projected going much earlier, such as the Wilsons and Bumper, but falls here due to a combination of team needs and projected fits. I honestly don’t see a better landing spot for King than Miami though, where management will know how to best utilize his talents. Miami has a major hole at corner next to Brian Meatball as well and would sure welcome an influx of young talent to the position. Second Round 9. Los Angeles Reign: RB Mustang Rushmore, @Rockstar, Manchester Lookout Another offensive player (from a former L.A. GM no less) to go with two first round defensive players provides nice balance. 10. Wisconsin Brigade: CB Prince Saxton, @Rockstar, Manchester Lookout Boom’s retired, and Hoar’s stalled out. Saxton would be a starter here from day one. 11. Toronto Skyhawks: RB Landen Smith, @Lefty_S, Athens Carnage I don’t know if the other teams would actually be nice enough to let Lefty get his GM player anyway in this scenario, but I like when things work out clean. 12. Los Angeles Reign (from San Francisco): LB Taco Bell, @Alex_J32, Athens Carnage 13. Minnesota Frontier: LB Rinky Runkman, @ctots, Athens Carnage 14. New York Herd: LB B B, @Vkobe-v, Death Valley Rangers 15. Seattle Predators: LB Saif Hans II, @Bartimaeus, Death Valley Rangers 16. Miami Neptune: RB Jackson Robinson, @Bartimaeus, Death Valley Rangers

  6. Greetings EFL! I hope you all are enjoying your Labor Day weekend (for you Americans at least). It's with a heavy heart that I must announce that @MMFLEX is stepping down as Admin. Flex has been instrumental in keeping the EFL running, and his absence will be sorely missed. I have nothing bad to say about him (aside from McPewPewPew was overrated ), and it will be hard to replace him. Fortunately, if anyone is up to the task, it's our newest Admin. Please give a big congratulations to a member who has been long deserving of the role, and has been one of the strongest BoD members for a long time, @oilmandan! I mean hell, if he can lead turn the New York Herd into champions after a mere 26 season losing streak, he can do anything! Thank you all for your time, and please give a big Thank You! to Flex and Congratulations to OMD!!

  7. Ah, next season scouting. A time-honored tradition among EFL GMs that leaves virtually everybody wondering, “wait, who declared?” at the start of each new ECFA season. And with plenty of big names in play – including the likes of oilmandan, Spartan, AW13, and Wheaties – it’s worth determining if GMs should really be getting excited about some of the big names in play, or if we’re in for a bit of a less star-studded draft class. I’ll be covering the lesser-known names (or players just starting their potential EFL careers) in my Rankings article for today – this is just the big hitters. FB Jacob Seed, Roswell Encounter (oilmandan) Nothing to see here. Unless OMD is retiring a Dan Wilinsky III that hasn’t even started his fourth season yet, Seed will be a nice little boost to a team in the second round next season but I wouldn’t expect him to advance much beyond that. Moving on! (Grade: Filler/RTP) WR Clyde Jackson, Trenton Generals @BeastTakeover Our first ‘real’ player on the list is Trenton standout Clyde Jackson, a Deep Threat-archetype WR that’s busting at the seams with talent. He’ll pair nicely with fellow wideout Samuel Sellers and one of two QBs, either Tremont Kings or Jaylen Johnson. While both are reasonably close (>150 TPE) to the cap, Jaylen Johnson has taken the field general approach to his build (45-rated noodle arm strength, good intelligence and accuracy) while Kings is substantially more balanced (all three attributes between 66-72). Kings has been waiting quite some time for the limelight, having sat behind Rider all of last season on the league’s most productive pass offense (299/474, 3,436 yards, 20 TD), but it remains to be seen which of their active QBs will be throwing to Jackson. (Grade: 8/10, sure-fire first rounder) WR Big Chest Brown, Hades Creek Phalanx @Spartan Surprising just about everybody outside of Hades Creek is receiver Big Chest Brown of former Pittsburgh Steelers/Las Vegas Raiders/New England Patriots/Tampa Bay Buccaneers fame. Spartan’s made the very sudden switch to wideout after a change in plans brought Anty’s quarterback to the Phalanx. He’s part of an absolutely stacked offense and will be sharing some throws with fellow uncapping wideout Luka Hol’This, who struggled to replicate the success of last season. Spartan’s a well known quantity in sim leagues and should be a no-brainer. (Grade: 10/10, likely top 3 pick) LB Kanoa Lokelani, Biscayne Bay Pirates (AW13) As noted above with Seed, AW13 has both of his players solidly in the league as top-flight contributors in mid-career. I don’t think Lokelani’s going anywhere other than to the RTP box. (Grade: Filler/RTP) WR Brian Harper, Manchester Lookout (Wheaties) The ever-changing landscape in the EFL has few constants, but Wheaties’ production of championships and quality wideouts emerging from the ECFA have gone hand in hand over the last several seasons. However, with Brian Kirkland entering season #10 with 600+ TPE remaining and fledgling wide receiver Brian Harper having just uncapped (probably, anyhow) at 209 TPE, it remains to be seen if Kirkland is going to retire at the end of the season allowing Harper to exist as a complete player, or if Harper’s next in the line of new GM RTP players. (Grade: ?/10, is this a filler?) (sorry, very brief this week -- but hey, it all counts, right?)

  8. The changes up top are coming fast and furious as we try to make the EFL the best league out there. In order to do that we need to have the best people in those top positions. We’d like to thank everyone for their applications so far, we’re still looking for good people in many roles around the league too, so keep them coming ( Always a big need for future ADs and GMs ). In no particular order, we’d like to welcome @124715 to the BOD crew. He’s been n the EFL for a very long time and has been a huge help on short notice. He’ll be taking over as Head of Presenting and will keep presentations on time and exciting! Also joining the BOD is another familiar user who recently took over as Head of Updating. Welcome to @Adrest245! Another user who wears multiple hats, he’ll continue in all those roles and maybe take on a few more. Lastly for now, @TacticalHammer wasn’t and likely won’t be fully replaced, but we’ll do our best with what we have. Making the step up to the Admin side of things is @NotSoGood88. He already does enough to earn 12 tpe every week, but now we can pile more onto his plate for the same pay! Welcome aboard.

  9. This is just for shit and giggles, folks. Nothing to be taken too seriously here, I hope. Without further ado, here are your preseason power rankings. 8.) Seattle Predators Preseason Result: L 14-15 to Wisconsin Team AVG APE: 336.28 (8th) Seattle looked out of sorts in their preseason debut on the road against Wisconsin. When your signature ground game goes dead quiet for just 76 combined yards on 30 attempts among 4 ballcarriers, that's a bad omen of things to come. Twoson Fourside's regression may prove to be too much for the future Hall of Fame running back to overcome, and Tactique Marteau's short-game passing might eat up chunks of yards every now and then - it doesn't seem like the passing game is ready to carry the team at all. Their defense could have used a higher first-round pick this past offseason to bolster the unit, but when you're coming off a championship, you won't hear too many complaints. It's going to be a long season for the Predators. 7.) Los Angeles Reign Preseason Result: L 6-26 to Toronto Team AVG APE: 365.00 (7th) We all knew that Los Angeles was going to have a couple of rough rebuilding years as they opted to bare the cupboard in exchange for future assets. The first assets came in the mail through the S37 Entry Draft where the Reign were able to draft FS Stetson David, CB Blake Wilson, QB Rex Rider and RB Mustang Rushmore. With a few more picks coming on the horizon, this season will all be about giving these rookies maximum playing time and opportunities to stat-pad. In their preseason game, Rex Rider did not throw a single interception on 34 pass attempts and Stetson David even led the team with 13 tackles and one interception - this team will take all the good signs they can get. 6.) Wisconsin Brigade Preseason Result: W 15-14 vs. Seattle Team AVG APE: 603.69 (2nd) It seems rather unorthodox that a team ranked second in Team AVG APE would rank this low in the power rankings -- but it may be a matter of the team meeting the minimum on both sides of the ball quantity-wise along with a couple of top-heavy veterans skewering the results here. In stark contrast to their success from S28-S34 -- Wisconsin actually ran the ball more than they passed - rushing a total of 49 times compared to 30 pass attempts -- however, this offense only produced 5 field goals. It's going to be really interesting to see if newly signed running back Captain Cutthroat can keep up his 47-carry/game pace through the regular season. The defense still looks stout with linebackers Ahhh Specriggivi, Yalla The Biter and free safety Martilo Tactico leading the unit. 5.) San Francisco Frenzy Preseason Result: L 6-34 to Miami Team AVG APE: 526.86 (6th) San Francisco ranks ahead of Wisconsin largely on the basis of their ability to field an efficient passing attack. The team may have simply been a victim of bad luck in the preseason as Algren threw three interceptions against a respectable Miami Neptune secondary - which may be a sign that he'll miss his favorite wide receiver Nsikayesizwe Kolisi a lot more than we thought. The Frenzy's defensive unit were able to rack up 11 pass deflections in what was a busy day defending the passing lanes, but still got rung up for 469 total yards (412 passing). However, in a weak Western Conference - San Francisco could still somehow limp their way into the playoffs. 4.) Minnesota Frontier Preseason Result: L 17-34 to New York Team AVG APE: 643.07 (1st) Minnesota's preseason is an interesting case study for myself -- they were outgained by only 15 yards, yet lost by 17 points. When I went to examine the box score - the answer was quite simple. Three interceptions thrown by Minnesota's QB Michael Lunatia, all to future Hall of Fame CB Lemony Snicket of the Herd. This was also the first game for the Frontier in the post-Eden Empire II era, but they were able to replace him with running back Billy Bumper who finds himself in a familiar RBBC committee with Potato Salad. The defense actually looks solid, holding the vaunted Herd passing attack to just 265 yards and is going to be a scary bunch to pass against. The Frontier will need to try to figure out a way to better utilize star receiver D'Quan Gilbert if they're to take that next step toward a championship contender as opposed to just being the best of a weak conference. 3.) Toronto Skyhawks Preseason Result: W 26-6 over Los Angeles Team AVG APE: 564.57 (4th) It's crazy to think that only only last season's draft, we saw the Toronto Skyhawks select QB Martin Isaac II with the #1 overall draft pick, and now we be talking about the Toronto Skyhawks as a potential Top-3 team in the EFL. Toronto took care of business against Los Angeles, like they should be against rebuilding teams, and did so with an dynamic balanced attack (228 passing yards, 201 rushing yards). Curtis Taylor has finally returned to his original running back position and looked great doing so - the defense will be top-heavy and led by arguably the best hybrid defender in the game, Warren Grey who racked up a league-high 16 tackles in the preseason. They're going to need to bring their A-game if they want to be in the Top-2 of the East. 2.) New York Herd Preseason Result: W 34-17 vs. Minnesota Team AVG APE: 571.81 (3rd) After a disappointing end to their postseason run last season (why does that phrase sound like a broken tape recorder?) - New York acquired wide receiver N. Kolisi via a trade with San Francisco along with LB Harry Dillinger for three future draft picks in an obvious effort to compete for an immediate championship. The result? A convincing preseason victory over Minnesota in a potential S37 EFL Championship Game preview. It's going to be incredibly silly trying to stop all of TE Ragnar Jarvinen, WRs Kolisi along with Count Olaf and Dan Wilinsky III. Their defense should be respectable - but when you're playing New York, you're basically walking into a track meet and the only way to beat them is to either ice the running surface (while wearing ice skating blades) or beat them off the starting gun if you've got enough firepower. 1.) Miami Neptune Preseason Result: W 34-6 vs. San Francisco Team AVG APE: 544.06 (5th) Yeah, this sounds so freaking clinche, just like New York's postseason shortcomings - but the championship will always have to run through Miami for as long as that dadgumit GM Wheaties is still there. They actually outgained every other offense in the preseason and did so through the air (412 passing / 469 total yards). When you've got a Triple Crown threat at Trigger Colt, a saavy veteran in Brian Kirkland and newcomer Ayomide Ayodele along with Amelia Michigan providing depth at receiving - then there's also the underrated signing of Judoma Forscythe to round out the Neptune offense. Jeez. They've got a solid secondary too with Brian Meatball, rookie Lamar King, Inactive Heisman-Winner and Porter Buford to complement the solid linebackers. Okay, so when does Miami ever regress?

  10. S37 ECFA Power Rankings 8. Death Valley Rangers TPE levels, lack of personal, and other reasons leave the Rangers at the bottom of the power rankings. Yes, Quarterback Venice Cruz is still the man and can still play. But I still see the Rangers winning 2-5 games this year. 7. Biscayne Bay Pirates Biscayne Bay has moved up a spot y'all! They have a great HC who wants to see them go out and win. They recently dropped their QB for one on the transfer thread. RB Kacey Keys will be carrying this offense mark my words. See them winning 3-6 games this year. 6. Manchester Lookout Manchester was at the bottom but now with a great HC who has come in and has really started to make a change. Brian Harper switching to QB has really given the team some hope and with the addition of RB Wayne Jackson I see them winning 4-7 games this year. 5. Trenton Generals Trenton has really made it out of the mud. They continue to play well and even with QB Rex Rider leaving they have another upcoming great in QB Jaylen Johnson. Coach Beast knows what he is doing and he is going to show that Trenton isn't to be fucked with. See them winning 5-8 games this year. 4. Roswell Encounter Normally Roswell wouldn't be ranked so low, but with HC Adrest stepping down and with them losing a major player to the transfer thread, They have some regrouping to do. They still have a good team and have added a QB finally, Are they the same team tho? Have them winning 6-9 games this year 3. Savage City Wraiths A team that really was not a good team last year, their team was young. Now the team has developed into a very scary team with having 2 capped RB's at 199, a Quarterback with 150+ TPE, and overall 9 players above 100 TPE. This team will be the biggest surprise this year. Have them winning 7-10 games 2. Athens Carnage They're back? That's right. The reigning champions are still looking for blood. They lost a lot of talent but just reloaded with Eden Echo and Lance Swift IV, as long as coach Numbers is there they will always be in the conversation. Killian Rose won't be taking any prisoners either. Have them winning 8-11 games 1. Hades Creek Phalanx Oh lord, they done reloaded? Sigh. This team has leaped all the way to the top of the Power Rankings! They now have a great QB from the transfer thread and WR Big Chest Brown is itching to strike. Plus Freshman RB Arby Sutton. This Offense will be the best in the league. Have them winning 9-12 games

  12. Introduction Welcome to the EFL short for Elite Football League. The premier sim league to grow, and grind your future hall of famer. You will start by going to https://efl.simflow.io/ the portal that coexists with the forums, and a key part of this game. Once inside of EFLO (Nickname for the Portal.) you will locate the Create-A-Player button at the top left under the player tab. This is the path to designing your player with the vision you have in mind for them. Do you want to be DK Metcalf? Well then you'd go, and select Create-A-Player WR, and pick an archetype out of the four options that suits the abilities/work ethic you'd like your character to have. EFL allows you to create a player on both sides of the ball, allowing twice the fun. Both characters are different one being offensive, and one being defensive. It isn't necessary to have two characters, but if you stick around, and like it consider doing it as it helps the league as a whole by filling roster spots, and creating a healthier eco-system for everyone. Additionally it allows you to chase stats, and awards on two players. After character creation, you will enter a period of waiting. It will be short, but you need to be pitched to by the league's selection of Athletic Directors. Mandatorily they have to wait twelve hours allowing every athletic director to have a chance to pitch, and make his case even if you commit to them verbally upon creation, or whatever the case may be. After twelve hours you can get a contract, and sign with the school of your choice. Picking the School for You An important part of the player process is picking the right place for your player to play. This isn't solely on the player as stated above. You can look around in EFLO, and click the ECFA (College) index, and see which College may have a spot for your position, or if you just like the team that wins the most you may be more inclined to sign with them. You can stay into college for up to four years like real life, and chase awards. Do you want to be the greatest college player, or make the league earlier, and get in with the big dawgs? The choice is entirely up to you. After Joining a School After making a commitment to a school you will be given the opportunity to sign to their roster. Once you have accepted your contract, you will be invited to the locker room of your team. (A discord server typically.) In their you will be able to communicate your build's intentions, team desires, and whatever else you wish with your teammates. It's a good place to chat, network, and build connections. It's also a very good place to get hyped for the season, or the future of each other's players. Earning TPE TPE stands for total points earned. TPE is the primary factor when it comes to growing your player. It's the points put into your player so the higher the TPE Number, the better the player. When starting the game out you will earn points from doing tasks on the forum such as (articles, quotes, graphics), and they will apply to your weekly cap of 12/12. Every week you can log in, and make twelve points to progress your guy forward in his career. There are circumstances where you can circumvent the cap however such as training (offseason bonus), or other special themes week available in the offseason (Events Week/Media Week). This is called Uncapped TPE, and allows you to go past the cap after your 12 typically for around 18 to 20 points. Pictured, example of where to spend your TPE at to increase your character's abilities. Everybody has their own way of earning TPE they prefer. The writer, myself.. I like to do a Player Brand (short writing about your player's lifestyle/social media post, etc.), Graphic, Press conference to cap out for my twelve.. but I also take advantage of the seasonal ranking opportunity at any chance I get. (Seasonal opportunity = once a season. Do a ranking for 6 uncapped TPE.) APE If you've done some scrolling in EFLO, you'll see this number right next to TPE. It essentially means applied points earned. Once you hit a certain number of TPE your character will start to naturally regress as if they were aging. The hit won't be too bad to start out, and you can purchase certain things with your contract money to fight against it, and lower the regression rate with hopes of becoming an all-time great, or just riding it out for one last hurrah with your pro team. This won't happen for some years into your player's career so there's no reason to worry about this now- it's just something I wanted to include so you know the full scope of things to look out for. Capped VS Uncapped TPE Every player starts out at "capped" with the potential to earn 199 TPE. Base is 50, so if you play out a full season, and max earn the entire season you'll end up if you do all uncapped opportunities etc with the ability to uncap potentially in your first season. Uncapping is basically unlocking your player's full potential, but it will only allow you to play one full year in college after you do it, and be forced to declare for the EFL draft. If you earn any TPE over 199, it will push you into the next year's draft. So if you intend to play college, stay at 199. You cannot earn any TPE until you decide to uncap, so if you cap first year, and intend to play college all four you could uncap at the end of your player's third season, and go for a more dominant college run at upwards of 300ish tpe in his final collegiate season.

  13. Thank you everyone for tuning into the ECFA Week Two Presentation here on EFL Sports. Be sure to tune in next time for Week Three as the season shapes up unexpectedly with teams records all over the place, and nowhere near their projections. Savage City Wraiths for real? Athen's coming back to the Finals a third time? HCP, things not all great in a stacked offense after all? We have it all here.

HALFTIME SCORES 7 - 10 The Lookout come to life in the second quarter, as Brian Harper scampers in for a 9-yard touchdown and Don Keigh hammers a short field goal with time running out for the lead! 10 - 7 Speaking of coming alive, the Wraiths offense begins to move! Dawson Zimmerman throws his first touchdown of the season, 26 yards to Albie Darforyou, and a last minute BKE FG puts the Wraiths up 3! 3 - 14 Roswell kicks a short field goal to get on the board, but Killian Rose tosses his second touchdown of the day to Sherman Moss and the defending champs go up two scores!

  16. Hi there EFL. I want to keep this short. After quite a few seasons being the Roswell AD, I will be offically stepping down. While I was never the best of ADs, and only made the playoffs once. I met a lot of new people and created a lot of relationships which I am happy for. I got my players good stats and tried my best to have a fun environment. As real life catches up to me, being in multiple high positions throughout multiple leagues, i wasn't able to be an efficient AD for Roswell. That said, I am really happy with who will be taking over for me. A young first gen who I am confident will do a great job. Taking over is

  18. The championship games have been played at both levels and the two winning teams are fittingly teams that I was the AD or GM for very recently. I like to think I did most of the work and the new ADs and GMs just pushed them over the edge (jk, you guys did amazing work). With these games out of the way, we can finally get in offseason mode. That means we are going to see free agency open in the next couple of days, probably, and then we are going to get the results of the EFL Draft. The latter is my personal favourite event of the offseason - probably even my favourite event of the whole EFL season, getting drafted is always a ton of fun - but this article is going to focus on the former. Free agency is an underrated offseason event that rarely gets much love, but that's when teams can turn 180 degrees and go from bottom-feeders to elite. So today, we'll try to figure out where a couple of the top free agents are going to sign. Beretta Colt, LB, 997 APE, @SnapTackleDrop Beretta Colt was a member of the surprising Minnesota Frontier this past season. The team is still in a good place, and I do expect them to stay competitive for the forseeable future. The departure of Colt would however leave a gaping whole in their front seven, with Malinpa being the lone linebacker. So I wouldn't be surprised to see Colt come back to them after testing the market. However, if she realizes the grass is greener elsewhere, I think the obvious destination for her would be the Miami Neptune, where she could reunite with relative Trigger Colt and continue the already long history of the Colt family in Miami. The New York Herd would also make sense, because of their lack of elite LB. Prediction: Captain Cutthroat, RB, 957 APE, @UZI® Captain Cutthroat is off a disappointing season during which he split running back duties of the New York Herd with Andrew Hamilton. I'd imagine his dream destination would be one where he would get close to a 100% touch share when it comes to halfbacks. Teams that fit this description are the San Francisco Frenzy, though I doubt they can pay him, and two rebuilding teams, the Wisconsin Brigade and the Los Angeles Reign. If we broaden our search a bit, I think both the Minnesota Frontier and the Seattle Predators would sense. Both are playoff-caliber teams with inactive or highly regressed ball carriers and both would benefit a lot from adding Cutthroat. Prediction: Martillo Tactico, LB, 572 APE, @TacticalHammer Now this is where it gets fun. Tac is inactive, so this is basically only a question of which team needs a LB and is willing to big the most on it. The candidates are the same as for Colt, and the New York Herd seems like the team with the higher budget. Prediction: Vince Carswell II, QB, 495 APE, @LittleRiDog I mean, who else needs a QB? The Los Angeles Reign could outbid the Miami Neptune to be dicks. But they don't need an aging quarterback, now do they? Like that's not what's pushing them to contention. Prediction:

  21. We're just a game away from the S36 Playoffs. The Eastern Conference is mostly determined with Miami and New York being separated by a single game for #1 seed in their conference, which most likely will remain this way. In the wide-open Western Conference, as per the practice over the last few seasons, will come down to the final week of the regular season. Teams in contention: Minnesota Frontier (with a game in hand), San Francisco Frenzy and Seattle Predators knotted up at 7-6 apiece. Who's been making waves both in the box scores and in their teams' W-L records? New York Herd QB Alexander Chase Everett @Trifecta S36 Stat Line (thru 13G): 309/485 (63.7%), 4,079 Passing Yards, 40 TDs, 7 INTs, 111.7 QBR After experiencing a breakout season in S35, New York Herd signal caller Alexander Chase Everett has proven to everybody that he was not a one-season wonder, improving his efficiency across the board this year while leading his team to the second-best record in the league. ACE's most productive targets happens to be Dan Wilinsky III and Count Olaf (both over 1K yards and 20 combined TDs), but he's been able to get his tight end Ragnar Jarvinen (80 for 721 yards and 6 TDs) and secondary receiving threats in Randall Kariya and Captain Cutthroat involved (both with 440+ receiving yards). When you've got a lethal passing attack in the EFL, odds are you're one of the frontrunners for both individual hardware as well as an EFL Championship. Can they overcome the Miami Neptune obstacle this year? Miami Neptune QB Vince Carswell II @LittleRiDog S36 Stat Line (thru 13G): 422/637 (66.2%), 4,846 Passing Yards, 33 TDs, 9 INTs, 100.4 QBR The player that has surprised many people coming into this season is none other than Vince Carswell II. It was only just last season, VC2 was without a job and thought he was washed up, done for as a starting quarterback in the EFL. Oh how things have changed.... now Carswell finds himself leading the best team in the EFL and leading all quarterbacks in completions, attempts, passing yards and ranks second in passing touchdowns and interceptions. He may have single-handedly saved Miami's season (as well as his two primary receivers in Trigger Colt and Brian Kirkland) - definitely deserves props and some honorable mentions in the QBotY / MVP races this year. Minnesota Frontier RB Eden Empire II @MMFLEX S36 Stat Line (thru 13G): 381 Carries, 1,682 Rush Yards, 10 Rush TDs, 58 Catches, 345 Rec.Yards, 1 Rec.TD The retiring Eden Empire II is certainly hell bent upon flaming out in the most magnificent way possible. After leading the league in rushing last season, EE2 is looking for a two-peat -- adding onto his resume this year compared to last season? More rushing touchdowns and being relevant in the team's passing game (he only collected 20 passes versus 58 catches this year). This strong-nosed running back is willing to do anything necessary to help his team win games this year and if that's not the Most Valuable Player, then I don't know what is. Seattle Predators RB Twoson Fourside @omgitshim S36 Stat Line (thru 13G): 367 Carries, 1,660 Rush Yards, 14 Rush TDs, 49 Catches, 441 Rec. Yards, 1 Rec. TD Twoson Fourside is now thrice removed from regression, but this running back just continues to defy the odds and buck conventional running back regression trends. He's the only reason why EE2 is not running away with the Running Back of the Year award and 2-4 also has four extra rushing touchdowns on his resume over EE2. Seattle also happens to have another Week 14 date with San Francisco in an epic battle that will determine who makes it into the playoffs with the 2nd ticket in the Western Conference. Oddly enough, 2-4 hasn't mentioned anything at the possibility of retiring, so we might not quite be done with this player just yet. Miami Neptune WR Trigger Colt @SnapTackleDrop S36 Stat Line (thru 13G): 111 Catches, 1,484 Rec. Yards, 10 TDs Trigger Colt took a huge step forward last season with quarterback Ajax Cole IV -- this year, a new quarterback did not change anything. In fact, Carswell may have done better for Colt's numbers as this wideout currently leads the league in both receptions and receiving yards (unusual for a wide receiver). He's only two TDs behind San Francisco's N. Kolisi and New York's Count Olaf for the touchdown lead -- it might have to take a 3-TD kind of game for Colt to win the triple crown, which could earn him some MVP nods. We finally move on to the defensive side of the ball - there is a reason why only one player (New Orleans CB Zane Montgomery in S24) has won the MVP on this side of the ball... the sim engine and the voters love them offensive numbers. It takes a truly special effort on defense (special teams would help too) and a general offensive down-year in order for something like this to happen. Wisconsin's Lemony Snicket came painstakingly close last year even though he collected 12 INTs and 23 PDs. Toronto Skyhawks LB Warren Grey @AW13 S36 Stat Line (thru 13G): 126 Tackles, 10 TFLs, 6 FF, 4 Sacks, 1 INT, 8 Pass Deflections, 1 Blocked Punt In his first season as a linebacker (after playing at strong safety to start out his career), Toronto's Warren Grey either leads outright or is tied for the league lead in tackles, tackles for losses, forced fumbles and is one of few players to actually block a punt this season. Is it enough for the MVP? Probably not, but he's definitely a frontrunner for the Defensive Player of the Year as well as the Linebacker award. This Skyhawks team is slowly but surely coming up the ranks, keep an eye out for Grey and co. in a season or two down the road. Minnesota Frontier LB Beretta Colt @SnapTackleDrop S36 Stat Line (thru 13G): 91 Tackles, 4 TFL, 15 Sacks, 9 Pass Deflections This might not be as strong as Warren Grey's numbers, but one particular number really stands out to me -- 15 SACKS! It has been a while since a linebacker was able to rack up sacks like crazy. But this linebacker isn't just a one-trick pony, as Beretta has shown the ability to also cover the passing lanes, racking up 9 pass deflections as one of the major cog pieces behind Minnesota's #1 ranked defense (scoring, total yards, rushing yards, passing yards). Or maybe we could just give the award to the defensive unit as a whole? Who's your vote? Got somebody else in mind? Make your voice heard in the comments!

  33. Welcome to my objective (that is, entirely numbers-based) ranking of the ECFA recruiting classes for this season. Before we get into that, let me present a few objective ratings of this freshman class. Here they are, ranked by total TPE: 10. ATH WR Tyson White (86 TPE) @Lefty_S 9. ATH RB Sadie Adams (88 TPE) @sadie 8. HCP LB Rada Belov (89 TPE) @dustywilson22 7. SCW TE Jayson Prince (108 TPE) @Youngbuck 6. MAN WR Gabrijela Kazimira (109 TPE) @omgitshim T-4. ATH CB Stanley Yelnats (110 TPE) @Cornholio T-4. ATH RB Eden Echo (110 TPE) @McWolf 3. ATH KP Jimmy Hexadecimals (124 TPE) @124715 2. ATH RB Lance Swift VI (126 TPE) @Wally 1. HCP RB Arby Sutton (153 TPE) @CowboyinAmerica Sutton, one of just two redshirts on this list, effortlessly clears the rest of the freshman class and figures to reach the 199 TPE cap quickly in the season. Echo and Belov are the only RTPs on the list, showing that true players still largely rule the ECFA ranks. Athens, notably, owns six of the top ten spots. Here are the top few first-gen players, also ranked by total TPE: T-5. MAN RB Wayne Jackson (68 TPE) @Datboi69 T-5. MAN CB Triston Cluskey (68 TPE) @Datboi69 T-5. MAN WR Boris Trukov (68 TPE) @Comrade_cat T-5. SCW LB Maurice Alvarado III (68 TPE) @Kuesmo 4. DVR WR Paul Muad'Dib (74 TPE) @domffl 3. TRE KP Dude Buck (75 TPE) @TheDudeBuck 2. SCW RB John Brady (79 TPE) @John Brady 1. ATH RB Sadie Adams (88 TPE) @sadie All these players figure to play major and even starting roles in their freshman seasons, so make sure to keep an eye on this group! Now let's get into the team rankings. First, establishing a set of rules to help adjust the TPE number - call it adj. TPE - I'll use for these rankings: - players controlled by a team's AD do not count towards a team's total - RTP players count for half of their total TPE - first-gen earnings (that is, TPE over 50) count double - redshirt players receive a 25% penalty on their earnings (TPE over 50) These rules should help produce a more accurate picture of recruiting success than pure TPE. Let's get into the rankings! 8. Roswell Encounter (0 adj. TPE) The reigning ADotY Adrest recently handed over the position of Encounter AD to Gage, leaving the recruiting cupboards bare. But with the current strong state of the Encounter, it's likely Gage will be able to bring exciting new talent to Roswell. 7. Death Valley Rangers (98 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: WR Paul Muad'Dib (74 TPE) Not only did the Rangers add one of the most promising first gen users on the recruiting market, they also transferred in WR Thin Receiver to decisively fill a big need on the team. Depth may be an issue, but at least the passing game should be fun to watch. 6. Biscayne Bay Pirates (142 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: RB Kacey Keys (80 TPE), QB/WR Jasom Breeze Jr. (58 TPE) - 138 total TPE Biscayne Bay's biggest additions came in the transfer portal, as they landed both QB Frederick Frucker Jr. and LB Dexter Jackson Jr. Since I'm not counting transfers in this ranking, they earn a perhaps unfairly low spot on the list. Still, both Keys and last season's redshirt Breeze Jr. will play important roles this season and hopefully in the future too. 5. Hades Creek Phalanx (172 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: RB Arby Sutton (153 TPE), LB Rada Belov (89 TPE) - 242 total TPE Hades Creek is probably not at all worried about their freshman class. I mean, have you looked at their roster? It's stupid. Neither Sutton nor Belov will be tops at their respective positions this year, but after they graduate, uh, nine (!!!) players into the EFL both will be cornerstones for the Phalanx. 4. Savage City Wraiths (230 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: TE Jayson Prince (108 TPE), RB John Brady (79 TPE), WR Yula Barge (71 TPE), LB Maurice Alvarado III (68 TPE) - 326 total TPE The Wraiths disappointed last year, but a solid class of incoming freshmen look to reinforce the team. Brady and Alvarado are two exciting first-gen players that should be centerpieces on both the offense and defense in Savage City. 3. Trenton Generals (264 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: CB Carley Keys (80 TPE), KP Dude Buck (75 TPE), TE Nathan Claflin (67 TPE) - 222 total TPE It was a fun season for Trenton last season, and with another promising recruiting class in bound the Generals will look to continue their success. Buck and Claflin are two high-potential first-gen players that figure to start immediately for a high-powered offense, giving them plenty of opportunities to show the league their talents. 2. Manchester Lookout (367 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: WR Gabrijela Kazimira (109 TPE), RB Wayne Jackson (68 TPE), CB Triston Cluskey (68 TPE), WR Boris Trukov (68 TPE) - 313 total TPE Even despite a rough season last year, the Lookout have been able to bring in plenty of new talent to the team. Kazimira may be the shiny get in this class, but Jackson and Cluskey should both start from day one and get a great chance to develop with the team, and Trukov can work his way into the starting rotation fairly easily as well. If this group can stay dedicated, the future is bright in Manchester. 1. Athens Carnage (484 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: RB Lance Swift VI (126 TPE), KP Jimmy Hexadecimals (118 TPE), CB Stanley Yelnats (110 TPE), RB Eden Echo (110 TPE), RB Sadie Adams (88 TPE), WR Tyson White (86 TPE) - 638 total TPE Normally I'd think this would be bad luck, but I ranked Athens #1 in my ranking last season and it seemed to work, so I'm hoping for a repeat. Personally, I'm super excited about this recruiting class. We've got a lot of top-level talent to add to our team and to add to our LR, and also the highest earning first-gen user in RB Sadie Adams. Hopefully with these guys on board, the future of Athens football will be just as bright as the present. Thanks for reading! Let me know which freshman you're most excited to see on the field if you made it this far.

  39. Breaking Down The Savage City Wraiths 3 Big Questions for S37 Dawson Who? Allow me to introduce you to Dawson Zimmerman. The Quarterback is looking to be the next great QB and form a duo with incoming WR Yula Barge. There has not been a good duo in SCW since QB Ajax Cole IV and good ol' WR Harrison Meyer. Zimmerman is looking to be a team guy and go out there and show HC Grisby that he belongs under the center for the Wraiths. It is not going to be easy as there are going to be hard opponents that we will have to face, But In Kirb SCW will forever trust. Who is Taking The Carries? The Wraiths have a history of producing a great line of running backs, Ik Alexander Rivers rings a bell... But it looks like running backs Sir Lancelot and Anthony Demelton will be taking the carries for this young Wraiths offense. Demelton had a 1000 yards rushing last year while Lancelot was a reliable receiver who was willing to be moved around to help his team. No doubt that Savage City's offense will have to be looked out for. They slept on them so much last year because they were young. But now they got some games under their belt. Look out. Will The Defense Carry? The defense was always good. They were just being built on once the new coach came in to further help to well. Pieces like FS The Red Panda were already were in place for the team to go out there and try and stop opposing teams from running it up on them. Adding more players like CB Maple Dogwood and CB Alex Eliason just help the teams case as a great defense. But they need to kick it up a notch now the offense can go out there and play well. So let's see what happens, (in 2 weeks smh)

  40. Alright here I am today, ranking football positions, which you will soon find out is the one thing I know more than anyone about, based on how cool they are. Please take offense to this, because your position sucks and that means your player is bad. Anyways here we go: 1. Quarterback The objective coolest position is Quarterback. They run the offence, they have the most pressure and people turn on them faster than anyone else because it couldn’t be anyone else’s fault that your team sucks. All the big names in football are Quarterbacks, so if you want to be cool, be a Quarterback. But don’t you dare be a backup Quarterback because that is not cool, and you suck. 2. Wide Receiver The next coolest is Wide Receiver. Basically, anyone that anyone knows that isn’t a Quarterback is a Wide Receiver. Passing is cool and the Wide Receivers do it the coolest. They run far away and catch balls with one hand and all that. You can’t tell me they wouldn’t be the coolest if Quarterbacks didn’t exist. 3. Tight End Next is definitely Tight End. First of all, incredible name. No idea what it means, or honestly what makes them different than a Running Back, but these guys do offense, and offense is cool. I’d really love to see a new position called Loose End, which would definitely push Tight End out of the top 3. 4. Free Safety Our first defensive player on this list is the Free Safety. Important to separate them from the Strong Safety, which is lame. These guys are the last line of defence and that is baller. Free Safeties are faster, and therefore more interesting. I assume these are the guys that mess with the Wide Receivers catches, which is either really cool or just really annoying. 5. Cornerback Okay so I just read about Cornerbacks and although I was pretty wrong about Safeties, I stand by my word because I’m right. Cornerbacks get interceptions sometimes which is pretty cool. They’re the ones who constantly get burned by the actual cool players on the field, which is equally cool and also kind of embarrassing. I suppose if you made a GOOD Cornerback you’re cool. 6. Kicker Underrated pick here, mostly because everyone else is super lame, but Kickers are almost cool. I mean they also have that pressure that makes Quarterbacks cool, but their thing is way less cool in practice. It’s really only cool if you miss it, because we all expected you to get it 100% of the time anyways. Hot take, good kickers are boring. No one cares that you can do your job. Boring. 7. Strong Safety Alright now we have Strong Safety. Literally just a worse Free Safety. Why would you choose to be big when you could be fast. You had the option to be cool and you chose to not be. That makes it extra-uncool. Retire your player and do it right this time. 8. Running Back I hate that there are positions worse than this, because running is dumb, but here we are. The Running Back is ruining football. No one is here to watch you grab the ball and run 4 yards. I get that you’re necessary to keep the receivers open, but you are so lame. I’d rather watch the Quarterback miss 15 passes than watch a running play. The only thing keeping you up here is that you are at least fast. Also why are you called a Running Back, you literally run forwards? 9. Full Back Speaking of Running Backs, here lies the worse cousin of the Running Back, the Full Back. At least Running Backs do things. You are just a Running Back that doesn’t do anything 80% of the time. You just stand there looking dumb while everyone else does the work. Another retire your player and do it right this time kind of beat. 10. Linebacker Who makes a Linebacker. Literally why. What sick world do you live in where you think this is cool. The coolest thing you can do is sack an unsuspecting Quarterback. Otherwise you just stand there playing reverse tug of war with a bunch of dudes that look exactly the same as you. Go do some pushups or stare at yourself in the mirror or try to walk through a wall or something. Or go to therapy because someone obviously hurt you. Anyways, that’s my ranking of the positions available in EFLO Player Creation. I’d like to thank Wikipedia and the 4 football games I’ve ever watched for teaching me more than anyone else about football, and to all my readers, take this to heart. A lot of you are making lame players and you should just not do that next time.

  42. Why Arby Sutton Is Headed to Hades Creek When running back Arby Sutton declared for the ECFA, he did so with one main goal: to be a four year starter. There’s something intoxicating about being “the man” on campus, and while other players are preparing for an EFL career, Sutton is content making his name known on the ECFA level. With that said, his recruitment may turn out to be an even more important decision, finding a place that will be his home for not only the rest of this season, but for the next four seasons. Out of the league’s eight teams, four reached out his way over the past three days since he declared redshirt availability. In a sitdown with Rivals, here’s how Sutton ranked his choices and how he decided who he’s ultimately going with. 4. Roswell Encounter: The team with an undefeated record, in last? For Sutton, though, the team’s success may be more of an issue than a boon. He’s looking to come in and make an impact right away, and the Encounter already feature a host of talented freshman backs like Arthur Poe, Maurice Hartless and Hiroshi Uchiyamada. Although Sutton would presumably slot into the spot currently occupied by Brian Doberman, who is no longer showing up to practice, in the run-heavy attack, he ultimately felt like he could make more of an impact elsewhere. 3. Savage City Wraiths: Although the Wraiths don’t have as many RBs as Roswell, Sutton would still run into a similar issue here: splitting carries. Freshman Anthony DeMelton is entrenched as the team’s lead back, with Colin Casper receiving some carries too. Even if Casper moves to WR next season with Pikachu graduating, both he and Sir Lancelot will need touches as well, and it may be tough for Sutton as a backup to really make an impact in a balanced system. 2. Athens Carnage: This left two teams on Sutton’s list - and as luck would have it, they’re the two teams that Sutton’s agency had formerly placed players. Athens was the agency’s most recent team with Sherrick Newsome III, and they presented an intriguing case: an offense loaded with future talent, a graduating RB in Jimmy Emoji whose departure would open up carries, and a very dedicated AD (who admittedly was the first to contact Sutton about his plans). Sutton would have been happy here, he knows, but there was another team with a similar profile… 1. Hades Creek Phalanx: Similar to Athens, Hades Creek will provide Sutton the chance to make an impact right away: Dusty Wilson will be moving to the EFL at the end of the season, and with Anthonis Pratt seemingly entrenched at WR as another option for QB Big Ben Burger, Sutton will look to slot in as a freshman as the starting back. The tiebreaker between Athens and HCP, though, was one of history. Newsome won in his final season, which Sutton feels put a nice cap on the agency’s Athens history. HCP, meanwhile, never won in the agency’s seven seasons with the program. Sutton feels like there is some unfinished business there, and he hopes he’s the win to help bring a title home to the Pacific Northwest.
