  1. A couple moving pieces to announce: This will be my last season as EFL Simmer, but will serve in a backup role going forward. Taking over next season will be @Siddhus who has filled in for ECFA coverage a few times over the past couple seasons. With Sidd taking over the simming duties he needs to step down from GMing the Memphis Mambas. Transitioning into that position will be @BeastTakeover. Beast will also continue to serve as the AD of Trenton. We've decided to clarify the simming structure a bit more too. @AW13 will be backup simmer for the ECFA, and @Sharkstrong will be secondary backup to both leagues. EFL: Siddhus MMFLEX Sharkstrong ECFA: Wheaties AW13 Sharkstrong

  2. So I’d just like to take a moment to address some things if people don’t mind. My first point I’d like to address is my lack of activity on forums and updating Leroy Leroy v2 now and again. So starting the league I started out IA not really engaging much but once I found out more and met people like tac and flex I really wanted to be apart of the league more. So I started updating and I tried to become a AAD at first the answer was no by no surprise I had done hardly anything to that point but after I started claiming affiliate and doing more in sim threads omd said I could meaning I could even earn 12 easier now. After a while I talked with omd and we decided I would take over Roswell when we stepped down. So I did and that’s where it leads to last season when the lack of updates started again. So as most of you know I play HS sports and I am a busy guy outside of the EFL and sim leagues. I was earning well through when I had the injury with the ribs and a lot of extra time but soon after that I got back to a tight football schedule and school. I had felt I had a lot of time until I was healed and in school. Then games started on Fridays again which was sometimes my day to do tasks like this and be able to do things. I really am missing writing articles and making graphics from time to time but I really just never have time for it anymore or I would be able to do that more often. Most days I’m not home until 8:15-8:45 and somedays it’s a lot later than that. I’ll use this past Tuesday as an example we had a scrimmage an hour away and then went to a pizza place after which was cool and a lot of fun but it put me home around midnight that night. And I will say I was thinking about not doing as many sim leagues but idk which ones to even cut out because I love all of you so much. I’ll likely just “cut out” vhl and claim welfare there. And I was not going to do discord for a few weeks to see how it went but the one week in the summer where I wasn’t on was terrible and you are all so nice to be and I just appreciate each and everyone of you. So I’m really going to try to update here more and I am lucky enough to be able to support the league with my own money this season and I bought the season pass which I know I said I’ll never donate but I already broke that 2 times anyway and I never really meant that i know the work tac, omg, flex, omd, aw, lefty, etc. I’d just like to say thank you for letting me rant about my lack of activity and thank you for reading short Summary: I have been very busy irl with sports school and other personal things and I haven’t had much time to be updating lately but I really hope in the near future I can mentions: @TacticalHammer @MMFLEX and @oilmandan and. A lot of bod but I’m not tagging each and every one

  3. This will come as a surprise to some and to others, well they found out 15 seconds after it was decided. A couple seasons ago we turned Sacramento and Grand Rapids into BOT only teams with the goal of making it easier on ADs in terms of recruiting and filling their teams with active players. The hope was to eventually fill out these 10 teams and bring back the two BOT teams. Obviously this has not happened and we will be making further changes going forward. Starting in Season 31, Sacramento and Grand Rapids will be removed from play completely. Joining them will be Anchorage and Lincoln. A lack of recruits altogether and a vast difference in actives from team to team has led to this as we look to achieve more balanced competition from top to bottom. With 3 teams from one division and 1 from the other being removed, this will lead to some division realignment and schedule changes. Those will be announced later on. Also for those actives on both Anchorage and Lincoln, there will be a legal tampering and recruiting period that will start immediately. These players will finish out their seasons with their current teams and can’t officially commit to new teams till the offseason as usual Any other questions or concerns can be directed to me or the other BOD members as well. Thank you

  7. S31 EFL Mock Draft Last season in my mock draft, I made sure to highlight the fact that the draft was actually deeper than I thought. There were active players worth exploring into the second round, and every team with a pick could guarantee that they were getting a contributor for the coming year. It was a sign of the ECFA’s strength, and the strength of the EFL as a whole. This is, well, not that. The S31 Draft enters with four fully active players, one of whom is a GM player. There are a few others who have updated once or twice this season, or could hypothetically come back. But there’s a good chance that if you’re a playoff team this season, you’re not going to be able to pick up a major contributor in the draft. Best of luck in S32. The order for this draft is at the time of this writing, which actually could be totally wrong because there’s four teams tied at 6-8 in the West but I’m rolling with it. I'm also not 100% sure of the draft picks because the tracker hasn't been updated in a while, but I think this is right post-trades. The whole of the West and spots 2-4 in the East could change a lot by the time the end of the season rolls around, but if we’re being honest, there’s diminishing returns for the fighting beyond who gets pick 3 (and even then, it's three Minnesota picks and the New Orleans GM selection). 1. Minnesota Frontier: RB Potato Salad, Athens Carnage @Kelsier There’s not much to smile about when going winless in the regular season, but for a Minnesota team in desperate need of talent, you can’t argue with the top pick in the draft. After taking Fetu Tagaloa in the first round last season and nabbing Rayz Funk Jr. in S29, the Frontier has the beginnings of a remade defense. But outside of sophomore QB Frank Funk Jr., the team is desperately in need of young offensive skill position players – their starting RB and WRs this season were all in regression Y7, Y8 and Y9. As a one-cut back, Potato Salad offers a whole lot of versatility at either RB or WR, where he’ll be a centerpiece to the Frontier’s future. This one seems easy to me, and the only way it could be the other Salad is if the Frontier are sold on the offensive talent later in the draft and want to go a different direction here. 2. Toronto Skyhawks: SS Macaroni Salad, Manchester Lookout @Kelsier Essentially, the Skyhawks will take whatever Salad the Frontier don’t select. If it’s the RB Potato Salad, the Skyhawks will be more than happy to pair him with last year’s Curtis Taylor selection for a potent one-two flex RB/WR receiver punch. But of the two, Macaroni Salad might actually fit the Skyhawks’ needs even better. Third-year safety JD Boom is the only active player on the Skyhawks defense outside of regression, meaning that an infusion of talent is needed immediately. Macaroni Salad would slot in as a starter from day one in the secondary alongside Boom, McBride and an aging Aardvark, with the expectation that he’ll be alongside Boom for a long time to come. 3. Minnesota Frontier (from San Antonio ) RB Robbie Burnett, Biscayne Bay Pirates @ChefCook33 This pick could be the one from San Antonio or the one from Seattle, but lucky for Minnesota, they have them both. Either way, Burnett seems like an absolute slam dunk here. He’s easily the most active player available at this spot, and while I don’t see him jumping into the top two, I don’t see him falling beyond here either without a major upset. Everything I said above about Potato Salad also applies here, and I think Burnett could pair with Potato Salad well with one playing RB and the other playing WR. If the Frontier don’t feel Burnett is a fit, I think it’s more likely they’d try and trade this selection for a future first rather than go down the draft board for somebody. 4. Minnesota Frontier (from Seattle ) WR Deonte Carter, Death Valley Rangers @carnation199 Well, I said up top that the Frontier needed offensive skill position talent, and in this draft, they’re getting it in spades. Carter would be a slot receiver for the Frontier off the top, with the hope that he could develop into something more given enough time. Carter’s topped the 200 TPE mark and has updated with welfare and sim attendance in recent weeks, so the ability to still develop is certainly there. The Frontier would hope that work ethic is consistent if they put Carter in a starting receiver role, and with that work he could develop into a solid #2 receiver on the rebuilt offense. 5. Minnesota Frontier (from Los Angeles ) LB Fo Ur, Anchorage Storm @soneuser Fetu Tagaloa joined the team to be the centerpiece of the Frontier defense going forward, but one player does not make a linebacking corps. Neither does Raj Krishna or Hank Greening, both linebackers that aren't updating and will be under 500 TPA at the start of next season. Ur’s not looking like a future star at this current rate, but he’s an easy plug as a third starter rather than a bot player next season. Plus, with coming back to update last week, there’s a hope you can get some consistent production from him moving forward. 6. New Orleans Kraken: RB Andrew Hamilton, Anchorage Storm @Latti If there were ever a season to have a GM selection, this is it. Hamilton would probably be in contention for the first pick in the draft if he weren’t tethered to the Kraken, so they’ll be happy to pick him up here. And particularly with his addition, the Kraken are looking extremely dangerous on the offensive end moving forward. Eden Empire II has been a revelation in his rookie season as a workhorse back, Johnny Utah is a solid young QB beginning to move into his prime, and Raheem Mustard offers a solid young number two receiver for the offense. Add in Hamilton as Utah’s top option of the future, and the Kraken offense is looking bright. 7. New York Herd: WR Wowthisalotofcha Ractersforaname, Anchorage Storm @soneuser Whoever finishes in fourth of the tough East foursome could also land the last non-filler player above 200 TPE as of this writing. The wonderfully named Ractersforaname profiles as a slot receiver in the EFL, which he’d certainly be in New York if the team holds onto Joseph and Markstrom for another season. If the Herd does start to rebuild in another couple of seasons, though, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him as a stopgap starter in the interim. And that’s all for the non-filler players above the 200 TPE threshold. It’s possible that someone like @Tater_Tot or @Underclass_Hero come back to update, but that’s a bit like throwing darts blindfolded to try and predict. I’m also not particularly interested in where fillers like Macho Man or Rodknee Willicams end up, because they’ll be pretty inconsequential to the league long-term. With that said though, a few final thoughts: - Loading up on future firsts is always a dangerous game, because you want to make sure that when you do it, you’ll surely be able to get the talent to set you up for the future. When Rayzor did it in the VHL with the Helsinki Titans, the S80 and S81 Drafts turned out to be good bets. When he did it in the EFL with Minnesota, however, the S31 Draft may turn out to be not as great of a bet. Either the Seattle or San Antonio pick will likely end up as Burnett, with the other (and the L.A. pick) a player not currently above 210 TPE. The San Francisco first they acquired, as of now, is in filler territory. That’s probably not the return they envisioned when tearing down even further last offseason to get five firsts in this draft, but it’s unfortunately the way the cookie crumbled this time. - San Francisco received a lot of guff last draft for trading their S31 first and fullback Leroy Leroy v2 for the pick that ended up being kicker King Leonidas. I defended it at the time, though, taking a look at this draft class and figuring that as long as San Francisco made the playoffs, Leonidas would be better than anybody else the team would get with their first. That’s looking like a smart bet, given that the Frenzy are second in the West as of this writing. - Generally, the lack of depth in this draft class isn’t great. I think that’s pretty obvious to any outside observers. But I’m not as worried for a couple reasons: 1. There’s a lot of players sitting around 199 TPE in the ECFA, with many set to enter the draft next season. This isn’t a new norm taking place. 2. This obviously was an off-year for recreates with none in this draft at all. That makes this draft look even worse than it is, and while you would like more first generation players here, that’s going to ebb and flow with time. 3. I actually find it interesting from a meta standpoint how teams are going to react when it’s near impossible to get fully active players at every position. What are teams going to prioritize? Will tanking really be a viable strategy, as Minnesota is figuring out this offseason? What will be the optimal mix of older and younger players moving forward? There’s going to be a lot of team construction questions for GMs moving forward, moreso than in most leagues where you’re trying to slot in super active players in every position. I’ll be very curious to see how the EFL GMs work it out.

  8. It’s been a real long time since I just talked about my own players in depth, or at least this set of players, so here goes. Old Crows and Young Cardinals My first players in the EFL, Dan Wilinsky and Dee Fence left a very high bar to match in terms of personal success. Dan won a WRoTY award as well as an EFL championship and Dee won multiple CBoTY awards and a DPoTY award as well. Dee was also selected as one of the top 25 EFL players of all time. Both had Hall of Fame caliber careers so matching that will be difficult to do, but as the New York GM, it’s more about team success now. I know hard to believe, with all the “success” NY has had under my watch. Boiled Frogs Ronnie ScrewTheHerd Jr is the son of an old Wisconsin Brigade BOT, named by @Nykonax after an auction awhile back. Originally, he was supposed to be a Safety and Linebacker tweener, but I had him lose weight to help out at Cornerback. Unfortunately he’s been locked at CB for the past several seasons due slow development at the position. I think he’s had a couple Pro Bowls, but has never really been a threat to win any awards for himself. One benefit with all his banked is that he’ll be able to help out the Herd for quite a few seasons still. Likely until he gets to down to the level of what a recreate could enter the league at. Having him be a quiet presence on the Herd defense is ideal, as long as the defense stays in the upper half. Hopefully one day he can slide to Linebacker and move between there and Safety while others take the spotlight. He hasn’t been a player I’ve ever been excited about, so I won’t be sad when he does turn the lights off. Familiar Drugs Credit to @BeastTakeover Alex SonFire is the Quarterback I wanted to make when I originally joined the EFL. Unlike Ronnie, I do get excited when he does well, but his usage has rose and fell based on the other offensive players around him. Good balance on offense is important to me, so hopefully all this passing we’ve seen this year is an aberration. Which I think it will be with Might Guy as the future star on offense. I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t hoped he would’ve won an award or two by this point, but with so many ultra heavy passing teams every year, that’s not super realistic. Would be great if he helped lead the Herd to its first championship in forever though. Also unlike Ronnie, there is a due date for Alex’s career. The process of finding a new QB has already started and some very early scouting has found a couple exciting prospects percolating. Anything less than a championship with SonFire will feel like a failed career at this point. To A Friend My filler Dan Wilinsky III or DWIII is the son of my original WR and was part of the Manchester Lookout this season. My last filler in Manchester didn’t last long, so we’ll see if this one has longer life. His future will ultimately be decided by what the needs of the Herd are when the time comes. While my filler is a Scatback RB, he’s seen most of his time at WR in Manchester, although his role has mostly been as a spectator. Plenty of egos to feed there. Only time will tell if he becomes my next GM player, just another filler…. or a player available to most other EFL clubs. Even though there is work at hand, it’s always exciting to look ahead and plan out the future of both my players and the Herd too.

  11. It's been too long since we've publicly posted what we've been discussing behind the scenes and there's incredible value in transparency. We've had a lot on the table to discuss and some of the changes you've already seen. Some you may never see and some are still being worked out. What you already know: •Increase in starting TPE to 50. •Remove cap restrictions allowing everyone to earn 12 capped TPE per week. These are the result of looking at the ECFA and trying to promote quicker draft declarations for everyone. •Press Conference Q/As reduced from 4 per 1 capped TPE to 3 per 1 capped TPE. •Point Task Reviews reduced from 5 reviews for 3 job pay to 1 capped TPE per review (up to a max of 3). The reviews were really only there as a job anyone could do to reach the 12 cap. Reducing the requirements for both of these is an effort to make capping slightly easier. •ECFA player retirements: Quoting and accepting a scholarship in the signing day post will carry out that player on the team's roster for remainder of the season. This isn't really a change, but a better defined rule. We have defined dates in the EFL for player retirements if on contract, but nothing for ECFA as it related to contracts. We've now defined that contract as the acceptance of a signing day post. For both leagues, however, if a player is on a team and is retired midseason they will play out the remainder of the season. What else has been discussed? •Job Pay increases were discussed for various jobs. We need to continue looking at expectations of these jobs and the direction we see them heading. •Broadening our capped task opportunities. Our biggest roadblocks with this are what to add, how much to add, and how we want our capped requirements to look? •Removing a majority of the uncapped games and career point tasks. This has kind of already been taking shape without a formal announcement, but we're continuing to discuss what games we want to keep. Only keeping seasonal games or offseason predictions is the likely scenario. This would include: EFL/ECFA Fantasy, Seasonal Predictions, and Mock Drafts. At the end of the day, we don't want so many games and career PTs to be burdensome and overwhelming. •Changing the requirements on full point tasks. This is a discussion stemming back to trying to make capping easier. Figuring out the new PT scale is something that would need to be done. The biggest factor, however, is needing to consider how it would impact our affiliates and the claiming from league to league. •Internal discussion on roles and responsibilities. This is especially important as we've added 3 new BOD members and other shifts within. Something like this may not ever get announced unless a department head changes or a focus area is added. Getting more defined structure with so many moving parts is never a bad thing to keep this machine oiled properly. •Discussing presentation structure. The dilemma with this is we offer a unique feature with our play-by-play presentations, but at the same time if your teams aren't GOTW you're waiting through a presentation just for your box scores. We need to determine the direction we want to go, which comes down to changing something or keeping steady with what we're currently doing. My hope is that we can continue the transparency and sharing some topics of discussion like this with the entire league. -Flex

  15. Well, today is October 15, and while to basically everyone on this site, it means a whole lot to me: It’s been exactly 1 year since I joined the EFL. Nobody else on the forums shares the same join date as me, so this is kinda my own special day. And instead of just sitting around and thinking, “Nice, I’ve been here for a whole year!” I’m going instead write a big massive article about my time here. Each season will be out in spoilers so it doesn’t look massive, and I’d advise you to read this in chunks, not straight through (or just read the stuff you want to read). Here we go! Prologue Season 23 Season 24 Season 25 Season 26 Season 27 Season 28 Season 29 Season 30 Town of Salem (Completely Unrelated To Sports Simulations But It’s Important) I’m almost done with this article, thankfully for y’all, but I still feel like thanking/acknowledging/flattering some people Now you are going to be pinged, but I’ve told you where your mentioned to save some time. Pings Thanks for trying and failing (or pretending if you were smart) to read this article, which is apparently over 3,000 words long. Feel free to talk about anything remotely related to me on this thread. You can talk about how great I am! You can talk about something weird & stupid you remember about me. Or, if you’re like @Eagle Eye, you can talk about how badly you want me muted on the SBA Discord! Y’all have at it.

  17. Welcome to Week 13 of the EFCA season! As the season winds down, our contenders and pretenders have begun to separate themselves, with the Lookouts and Rangers leading their respective divisions (sounds familiar)! For our GOTW we'll be heading down to Lincoln to see the Mammoths take on the undefeated Rangers in one of their last regular season games ever!

  25. Having just returned to the EFL after a bit of a break, I, of course, have been thinking about what I love about the EFL. So, for my ranking article this season I have decided to rank the top five things I love about the EFL. 1. Interacting with the People Any list of things we love about our sim league experience has to start with the people we meet here. The internet is an incredibly toxic environment where nutcases can sit anonymously in their basements and troll others for kicks. Yet that happens so infrequently here in the EFL. How is that? Are we a little protected because you have to register and take some time to jump into a very niche environment? I don’t know, but it’s lovely. Your interactions with other people make or break this experience and the high volume of really quality people with whom you can have fun, supportive and engaging conversations really make the EFL the great time that it is. 2. It’s Football Baby! Some of us just enjoy the fellowship enough to dive in even as casual fans, but 95%+ of us really, really love football. The chance to experience our sport in yet another way is another big draw of the EFL. And this particular way to experience the sport is super cool – from the inside as a player. I doubt any of us are going to have the NFL player experience anytime soon, but in the EFL we can imagine what that would be like by role playing it out in a system where you actually advance your skills, sign contracts, move in free agency… And you get to do that from both sides of the ball – offense and defense. 3. Updating System I love all my leagues, but the EFL/SBA/VHL has the very best updating experience of them all. I’ve been in the PBE for 20 seasons so I can update in my sleep, but as a GM I’m always spending a lot of my time helping newbies update. I see very few of those same questions here in the EFL. You still have to learn the basics of when and how to create a claim link, but it’s just so easy to allocate those points earned. 4. Getting to shop to commit to EFCA I love the draft experience. It’s fun to engage in scouting conversations, pitch your player while you scope out the team in return, and then the anticipation of where you might land to start your EFL career is delicious. However, it’s nice to also have this other experience where you are really in the driver’s seat for where you play out your EFCA career. It’s the first experience of the league for many and it’s great that users can shop around and look for that great fit we all strive for. With having two players in this league, that becomes even more important. I want my players on the same team. With the commitment system, I can manage things so I get that experience. Not so with a draft. 5. Presentations The PBE wins this side of things hands down. No sim league can match the 3D graphical presentation of your player actually hitting the ball, sliding into second, or making a diving catch. Oh, maybe the SCFL, but that is an entirely different sim league experience that I’m not particularly drawn to. But rather than some leagues where you just watch a dot and try, mostly in vain, to follow what just happened in the game or where you just get an after the fact box score, the presentation system here serves to build excitement and goes at a pace where you can absorb it and get into imagining what is happening on the field. There you have it. Many other reasons to love the EFL, but this was a quick attempt to put the top 5 in order. 657 words

  27. Season 30 EFCA Power Ranking 6. Lincoln Mammoths I was debating on whether I should put Roswell or Lincoln at 6th, and Lincoln just has more depth for defense. With young freshman Dani Keys, their running game is looking bright. So far she's been doing great with 108 attempts for 610 yards and 3 touchdowns. She'll be tough to stop and we'll see who has the defense for it. 5. Anchorage Storm Anchorage has shown to be a better team than most thought they would. Now 3-1 after getting beat by the Rangers, it looks like they could make it to the Conference Championship, and maybe even a championship. Their offense is heavily built around their running backs Andrew Hamilton and Judy Theory. If they can keep up what they have been doing we may see Storm go to new places. 4. Manchester Lookout Manchester hasn't been the same since the 2 last seasons, after losing players, but don't count them out of a championship. They are very well still a contender. After losing VC2 though, it'll be hard to find a QB as good as him. Even with that, Flex was able to still find another runningback. Oscar Jebaseelan Jr. He'll will be an important part of their offense, as Everett just won't be that reliable. Oscar has been phenomenal so far though, with 441 yards, 3 touchdowns, in a matter of 63 attempts. They will look to him to lead them to a good season, even if it may not be as good as before. 3.Trenton Generals The Generals are another team that has shown to be promising, now the Generals and DVR being the only undefeated team. Although they will soon have to face Athens, a team that they got blown out by in preseason. But that’s preseason right? The team’s whole foundation falls down when Edwards and Grant Jr can’t connect. Pablo Sanchez also has to do very good in order to be Athens. Last game against them Trenton wasn’t doing the best. Can they move up the Ranking by beating Athens in week 5? We’ll see. 2. Death Valley Rangers Yes, Yes, why am I putting DVR in 2nd place, it was very hard deciding whether Athens was first or DVR was. I came to the conclusion that Athens had to be better. DVR hasn’t been the best since losing some of their key players, but they are still doing well with Thea Thanos, and Duke Dyer leading the way on the rushing end. Marteau and Carter are a connection that is going to have to work for DVR to even think about championships. Their defense is awesome and will be hard to get past. Speaking of defense that’s what brings us to Athens Carnage. 1. Athens Carnage Athens Carnage has been the team we’ve all expected it to be. Rushing end is held down by Salad and the other running backs. Defense is phenomenal. And they have a decent quarterback. And a young quarterback at that. Lane Taggert, the young freshman, did very well against Roswell. 12/18 completion of passes, 186 yards, 1 touchdown, and a 119.2 QBR. The Carnage will look very hard to beat, as they don’t really have a weakness. Just a power of brute strength in who wins against them. This was BeastTakeover, and these were my rankings. I hope you liked em!

  31. The Denver Steam had 3 franchise legends retire this past offseason, and now that awards have come out, we can evaluate these 3 player’s careers for Denver. Jarvis Taylor- LB @Lefty_S Jarvis Taylor was traded to Denver in a S24 Draft day trade for Vivian Allison. As a Steam player, Taylor made one Pro Bowl and helped to lead Denver to our only championship. While some may say he had a disappointing Denver career, Taylor was always a very solid Linebacker for Denver. He holds both the all-time and single season record for tackles, while also holding the single season and all-time records for forced fumbles. We are thankful for having him play for this franchise. Margaret McPoyle- WR @MMFLEX Margaret McPoyle was also acquired in a trade, but this was in a 3 team trade during the offseason before S26. McPoyle was the reigning MVP when this trade was made, but she lived up to all expectations. McPoyle made the Pro Bowl in all 4 of her seasons in Denver, and also was up for the Wide Receiver of the Year award a few times. McPoyle ends her Denver career with the highest receiving average, receiving touchdowns, and 2nd in yards all time. McPoyle is also 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 7th in single season yards, while being 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 7th in single season touchdowns. McPoyle was an absolute stud and a key part in Denver winning the championship, and will no doubt go down as a Steam legend. He will definitely be in consideration for the Steam Hall of Fame. Julian Falk- QB @Nepto Last up is Julian Falk, the S29 Most Valuable Player, and undoubtable the greatest player in Steam History. Falk was drafted to Denver with the 15th overall pick in the 2nd round in the S22 draft. Falk went through struggles early in his career but once he had some weapons to throw too he was great, making the Pro Bowl three times and winning Quarterback of the Year once. Falk was a player who was with Denver for both the ups and downs, as he was the starting Quarterback for both the 2-14 S23 team and the 14-2 S27 team. Falk ended his career in Denver with his best season, breaking the league record for touchdowns in a season, putting up one of the all-time best seasons for a Quarterback ever. He holds every single Steam all-time record for quarterbacks, and holds the entire top 5 for every Steam single season record. Falk will go down as a legend and has a case for the league Hall of Fame. The reason I said league Hall of Fame is because I would like to announce our first Denver Steam Hall of Famer, Julian Falk, who will be nominated sometime later this week. Now I’d like to say something about each of these users. To Lefty: I traded for you already being your friend, and although you may think Taylor was terrible and not good, I loved having you on the squad and winning a championship with you. To Flex: I traded for you having a bit of a relationship with you, but our relationship definitely grew having you on the squad, and I’m glad that we won a championship together in Denver (and Manchester as well). To Nepto: I drafted you basically as an unknown and not really knowing you, but you exceeded all my expectations. When I drafted you, I would have never thought you would be a league MVP as a 2nd rounder, but you earned really well. I am also glad we actually have a relationship now and talk a decent amount. Also: Shoutout to @Rockstar for these graphics.
