    All you guys talking about having crappy minor leagues...Please allow a High School and NCAA feeder league.

    Once they get established it produces much more realistic prospects. I like to have stats to look at when selecting players in the amateur draft.

    Plus it adds to the league immersion knowing what college or high school a player attended.

    Something I liked was that each team gives three feeder teams. One high-school and two colleges of their choosing...makes it more realistic and more fun since the owners have an allegiance to some feeder league teams...who knows, it may even sway drafting...

    I think I accidentally clicked a feeder league when I meant several. Being able to look at stats is a nice thing.

    I am, right now, compiling a list of fifty or so college teams. I plan on adding them to the game. As far as high school goes, I will probably just do state teams. Thus, there will be 50 college teams and 50 high school teams.

    Can you approximate how much tallent this will produce?

    100 teams? with about how many graduates/eligbles. I wouldn't want too much coming out of there.

    About how many rounds total out of our 10 round draft will that produce a year?

    50???

    If every team produces 6 players per year....and we have 100 teams, that 600 players per year into the draft pool if we use feeders only.

    The guide is three feeder league teams for every team in the league, and that's 48. TOTAL. I'd be afraid of talent inflation with that many. Maybe we can do 30 and 30.

    just using a college feeder wouldn't be bad. we'd just have older players entering the league.

    dunno though. doesn't matter to me how we go about it. as long as we use feeders, i'll be happy.

    We COULD do feeder and generated, which would give some younger players, just without stats. All the other guys could just be from non-D1 schools. Don't know how perturbed you guys would be by missing stats.

    Remember, the more teams/leagues we have the bigger the file is and the longer it takes to run sims.

    But, in a 16 team league, this shouldn't be too bad.

    My vote would be for 25-30 college, 25-30 HS teams. That way we get a diversity of ages.

    I'd rather have all high schoolers than any college.

    I hate 22-23 year olds in the draft as they aren't even prospects in two years and if they don't develop right away, you're screwed.

    Question

    I think this adds an interesting componant to the draft. Do you take the stats guy who has been tearing it up, or the unnown quantity with better potential?

    I'm not against it, but you'd have to cut the feeder teams to maybe a 16-team league (for symmetry) in HS and 16 in college.

    I am in favor of both col and HS but I willleave the #'s to the guys who know more about it.

    I am not in favor of generated AND feeders. That seems like too much also.

    Well having feeders has been clinched. Now it's just a matter of how many.

    Have a runoff if you have to between feeder styles.

    Yeah, looks like 9 GMs in favor of having some type of feeder system. Now we just need to figure out what this will look like.

    Perhaps start a fresh thread and poll for different feeder set-ups?
