yeah -- while i understand your point Emer it would at least allow people to control their own stats. Some people wont have time to put in but that also mirrors the real world of MMA training. I think the bigger issue would be having a lopsided draft.
With that said, and as Eric already entioned, we are working on contingencies. This is one of those floating factors which we will only really be able to solidify once the game is in our hands and we can see how it all works in multiplayer/online play.
