Given our poor T17, I'm very proud of our 6th place this season. Starting out expecting a relegation battle, in the end we finished in a very safe position, and if a couple of draws had converted to wins the we could have finished in the top 3 or 4. We haven't invested in youth, so next season our aging squad will struggle. Well done to all promoted teams and nice to see Adam and James back in the top flight.
Some sad retirements - Cliff Michelmore and Simo Salminen off to coaching jobs. Both are the last members of CPR to serve in the title-winning Season 35 side. Cliff was a young striker who had a bit-part in that side, and to be frank his career never flourished, being a solid but unremarkable striker. Simo was a key defender then and played a crucial role up until this season just gone. The big Finn will be sorely missed.
Happy New Year all, and looking forward to the new season already!

I total understand you Jon. It is a problem with these games. Rewarding the achievers and making them strongr is tough. They are already benefitting from better gates and morale and then to top it off with a CP or Cash. However the benefit diminished somewhat at the goo.......................

I agree - no need to make a change to the MVP code. (See David King's for more details)
|David King - May 9th 2018 11:37|
The first few MVPs are the best. Most teams can normally expect two in a season whether by design or accident.
The latter rewards are 25k. Cash is always nice to get but the teams winning these MVPs are probably doing pretty we!l all round.
At season end and into pre-seas.......................

I get what you are saying and i agree that better teams do get more incentives (extra gate receipts from bonuses too) but i don't think the MVP's need to be touched. Plus i would imagine it would be a complete nightmare to code what you suggest.
|Bill Ramsay - May 8th 2018 7:59|
|I think that the sliding scale of rewards for MVPs takes care of this balance alongside league status. By MVP number 4 the reward is average. If you have such a poor team that you cannot achieve an MVP in the league you are in then relegation and rebuilding should allow you this chance next season. .......................|
