    I've been playing 2 teams for over 6 months and have switch GW's a few times. I think I'm an average players..with top ranking in the 80's for Sr. 40's for youth.
    I never use the chat room unless I'm trying to buy a player, make a trade
    or request a loan. I do most of my community interaction during a game. But most of my games are AI because I work out of my house in sales and can play this game while I'm talking on the phone making sales calls. It's just easy to multi-tack when playing against AI.

    Joining Older GW. I joined Lofthouse with 550+ and left after 30 days to join Whiteside. In Lofthouse I got to the 80"s ranking and it was fun and built a good team in a short time. Mostly because more good player where available. Plus I went for Vet players even with red arrows that still have a few seasons in them. I left Lofthouse because I wanted a bigger GW and younger league.

    I would be fun if Sega started a GW from 1965 with the famous players from that era. As the new 15 years old come into the GW their name are masked....until you buy them......so maybe you get a top player from the get go. GW's would maintain interest.....

    That's my wild idea of the day.

    Thanks for your work on the podcasts.
