I would like to offer a quick note to the new players as we start up the games.
Recognize that we have a full season of games under our belt and they went very well. However, as we all know, football is the greatest game on earth in part because of its complexity and infinite scenarios. This means that, as we continue to move forward, there may still be unusual situations that occur where our simulation model does not yet have experience, and may not always make the right decision. If you see such an instance, let us know and we'll adjust the simulation going forward. (And recognize that if your game plan says that you will run 1% of the time on 4th and 10 in a hurry up offense, and you at some point run on 4th and 10 in a hurry up situation, that's not a simulation problem.)
Also, recognize that all game decisions are final. Like Green Bay vs. Seattle, or like the holding call against Szott in the playoffs, gametime decisions are never reversed after the fact. So while Sandbox Simulations pays our fictional refs as full-time decisions, and we sympathize if you get victimized by a bad call, those are the breaks of the game.
Good luck as we wheel Hank Williams, Jr., out of the warehouse and begin airing up the footballs!
