Also, you contend that increasing injuries would add more "fun"? Not at all!!
Look, I get your point. You prefer "fun" over realism. Nothing wrong with that if it is your preference.
As I mentioned, I'm content to play the game as it is. I was simply commenting on a very unrealistic aspect to it. (Yes, I prefer it be a true simulation (or as true as one can get in a virtual reality) - but that's just me. On what other aspects of RL should we compromise in the name of "fun". More or fewer sacks than in RL? No fumbles? Players who live for eternity?)
I recognize that the game is still a work in progress. My only goal was to comment on an aspect of it which could bear some tweaking in my opinion. (From reading previous postings, this subject has come up before as the game was thought to have too many injuries.)
Anyway, please check this website (http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/injuries/pup). I think you will then have to admit that having a roster with several on IR is indeed realistic in RL. Since the beginning of the NFL season, about 90 players have gone on IR (about 3 per team). About 60 players were put on IR during pre-season (about 2 per team). In fact, there is not a single team without someone on IR. And the NFL has played fewer games than we. Those are facts - not my opinion. Check it out!
