For me personally, its fun to put your stamp on the team right away through an offseason. Plus with the regular season over it makes sense, at least to me.

Re: Why sim?

Yeah - I haven't done that, but I have been tempted.

I also wish the first year in franchise had the option of starting in the off-season like HC 09, so you could do all the coaching changes, free agency, and a draft right off the bat if you wanted.

Re: Why sim?

I sim the first season for the same reason, I like to start the team MY way. Tho I ALWAYS try to "trim the fat" before I sim so I can get a few extra draft picks and sign guys like Jeff Backus (my lions 'chise) too one year deals to get the older useless guys off my team to free up cap room for next season and rebuild my way.

Re: Why sim?

This is the first time I've actually done this and its the longest I've played a franchise. Also took a bad team instead of playing my favorite team (Cowboys). Really fun when you get to the third season or so and seei the players your drafted/signed start making progress..

Re: Why sim?

I tend to go from the date of the last roster update. My preference is to start year one with the first roster update after the start of the regular season. This year I just picked up the game last week. I heard there was a roster update for 1/8 so I waited. Then I simmed to the end of the regular season and played from there.
