I guess I am sticking to rigged:-)
I have not seen any evidence to suggest otherwise. Plus, unless I am missing something, there is no way to scout your opponent. Sure, you know what players he has and it gives this one line about a players strength but it in no way tells you what formations/plays the other coach likes to call. It would seem important to know what the other coach does in some detail, no?
In the NFL, Bellichick doesn't just say, well, Chad Pennington has a weak arm so thats all we need to know.
Anyway, it sounds like I am complaining but I'm not, its a good game. I just was hoping there would be a real reason to call your own plays. There really is not though. It would be thru sheer luck that you sat there and selected a formation and then one of the 20 or so plays and completed a pass. Not because you found a weakness in the other team.
