  • NCAA 14 Created Team Dynasty: NSU Coyotes
    Recently I decided to create a brand new team and start from scratch. No good players, everything starting with a D- rating and set it to Heisman. I put the Nebraska State Coyotes as independents and gave it a whirl. WK 1 vs FCS Midwest: W26-20 Surprised i was and was behind 12-20 at the start of the 4th. Lucky 2 INTs got me in great field position and i did nothing but run the ball on short fields and kill the clock. WK 2 @ Alabama L13-24 How i managed this one i have no idea as i was... Read more »
  • Five Friends/Foes (DDSCB2017)
      Over the years through premier youth basketball, AAU basketball, and college basketball, five players became friends. Sometimes they were on opposing teams and at other times they played on the same teams. After graduating from college, all five eventually became assistant coaches.  In 2016, college basketball realigned into twenty-two 16-team conferences. These were set up based on the present strengths of the 352 teams with the 16 best teams in Conference A, the next 16 best teams in Conference B, and all the way down to the lowest rated 16 teams being in Conference V. Due to this drastic... Read more »
  • The Highland Potters [Pennant Wars]
    This will be a dynasty thread about the Highland Potters in the Pennant Wars Williams League, Division 1.   A little background about Pennant Wars. PW is an online fictional baseball sim. It simulates games 6 times a day creating seasons that last approximately 6 weeks real time. Each league has four divisions to create post-season promotion/relegation opportunity so that the best teams rise to D1 over time. This structure also creates some nice introductory divisions for new managers. PW is heavily sabermetrics focused and has a great community full of active managers. If you want to check it...

  • Franchise Hockey Manager 2 Dynasty
    The National Hockey League is coming into it's 15th Season when the NHL Board of Governors thought something had to change. Now leading up to the off-season, new players would be drafted into the league rather than just signed by teams. This would give teams who are not doing so well in the standings a chance to get better by next year. All stats leading up to this season were wiped from the record books as this is the "New" NHL. The team owners also agreed to have all the players be put into an Inaugural Draft. 401 players will... Read more »

  • Newcastle Tribune - On the Ropes, the Fighters Round Review (GPHM)
    Through the first two games of the regular season fans of the Newcastle Fighters have more questions than answers as the team searches for their first regulation win. After overcoming Stoney Brook in a back and forth game that saw the Fighters give up their lead on three separate occasions. With two minutes left in the third and trailing by two goals the Fighters miraculously tied the game with two goals in 30 seconds to eventually win the game 6-5 in the shootout off of the hat trick tally by Yassine Hutton.    The following night was much of the...

  • Purple Reign Redeux: A Front Office Football 7 Story
    In our last Purple Reign story, the Vikings had either been very dominant, or crippled by the injury bug. This injury bug must have carried over to my Xbox, and the old Purple Reign is no more. But this time, we're ready to re-write the script, with GM Bundy at the helm of the 2014 Vikings again, ready again to take on the NFL and bring the Vikings their first (of hopefully many) Lombardi trophy.    1st Pre-Season Game, 2014 The Vikings absolutely dominated the Raiders, though at times the score board didn't show that.    Scoring Summary 6:24 Q1: Raiders...

  • The 2020 Toronto Blue Jays [OOTP15]
    I have been dying to get back into writing a dynasty report ever since I lost my Blue Jays Dynasty after a corrupted hard drive killed it in 2032. So I decided to start a new 2015 game and let it sim 5 seasons before I took over. I wanted to see what the computer GM would do with the Jays and to be honest he did a very good job! In 5 seasons the Blue Jays managed to make the playoffs 4 times (with 2017 being the exception) and in the last 2 seasons they have had the best record...

  • DDS:CB3 Dynasty: The Professor
    May 1, 1968: I am Professor Leland Hart, 25, Harvard University. I have decided to keep this journal in order to document my progress regarding this fascinating experiment which I have taken on. I completed my Ph. D. in statistical analysis, here at Harvard, in December. I was able to design my own program which included research into game theory, sports statistics, and any number of other areas, all with the intention of determining which factors have the most relevance when it comes to success in competitive athletics at the Division I collegiate level. After a good deal of study... Read more »
  • The Blade [a DDSCB3 story]
    (Author's note: Once again, I am doing two associations at once)   April 25, 1991   Alvin Price is the name I was born with. I was born in Nutley, New Jersey on May 1, 1968. I very quickly grew to be long and lean. I reached my full height of 6’11’, and my full weight of 195 in high school. With a body like that it’s no wonder I came to be known as “The Blade.” I looked like the world’s tallest steak knife, viewed in profile.  There was actually a second reason for my nickname. My shot cut... Read more »
  • The Jeremy Knight Experience v2.0 [Hoops Dynasty]
    So a while back I started a dynasty report using DDS:CB3. Needless to say, that quickly died out due to changing to a Mac (and not being able to play CB3 anymore) and not having any free time due to work and school. Anyways, I’ve been itching to get back into posting a dynasty story. The issue is I can still no longer play CB3. However, I have been playing Hoops Dynasty over at whatifsports.com and decided that I could write about that.   I’m preparing to start my 18th season in this world so I figured I would use...

  • The Media's Perspective (DDSCB2016)
    Bison BlogBISON CONTINUE SEARCH FOR HEAD COACHThe on-going effort by North Dakota State to hire a new men’s basketball head coach is continuing painfully. Although AD Steve Monroe has interviewed at least 6 coaches, the university has yet to have any show enough interest to take on the job. The Bison used to have strong basketball teams and Scheels Arena used to fill for basketball games. But the emergence of FOOTBALL as KING at North Dakota State has resulted in a stead downward slide of the basketball program. The Arena now is like a morgue for most games. Their recent dismal...

  • Tournament of Champions: Promotion, Relegation, and Forced Relocation
    Hi, everyone. I have left a dynasty of epic proportions on the back burner because my computer cannot handle it or OOTP cannot handle it. Maybe a combination of both. Unfortunately for me, I spent dozens of hours making uniforms, creating histories, and all kinds of things for that world only to have it blow up OOTP 15 for me multiple times. It was a sad day, but I finally decided I would retry once I buy a brand new, state-of-the-art gamer's laptop. That probably won't happen before the summer of '16, so in the meantime, here is a doable... Read more »

  • Manitoba Dreaming: Winnipeg Jets (EHM)
    It was a little less than 5 years ago when talks about a NHL team back in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The struggling (then) Phoenix Coyotes were bankrupt and the City of Glendale, Arizona were tasked with covering the costs of the team. The NHL who owned them at the time said either you cover the costs or we walk. So at the 11th hour, the City of Glendale decided to pick up te tab to save their team. So now what would happen with the Winnipeg group that was looking for a NHL team? Sights turned to the East coast... Read more »
  • Tom “Whatever It Takes” Bradbury
      During my interview for the head coaching job at Memphis, Steve Forester, the AD, said he was tired and the alumni were tired of Memphis playing 3rd fiddle to Kentucky and Louisville. The more we talked, the more I realized that this was my opportunity to make a huge jump from a very low mid-major in the coaching ranks to an up-and-comer. Steve said he wanted a coach who would “do whatever it takes” to make Memphis a powerhouse team. Not only does he want the Tigers to best Kentucky and Louisville, he wants a national championship, and better... Read more »
  • Return to HockeyTown... A Detroit Red Wings BeaGM
    Author’s Note—               Unfortunately I didn’t decide to fully jump in with the BeAGM story until I had already played up to the playoffs of the first season. So my goal is to move through the regular season fairly quickly and begin to provide more in depth game recaps beginning in season two.   Also this is my first time posting a dynasty on this website so if i step on any toes please let me know. I have some pictures to be included in this but an having trouble formatting them as I'm unfamiliar with the set up... Read more »
  • NHL: Reborn
    With the new FHM 2 going back further this year that the previous incarnation. I figured why not start from there. The season starts in 1931-32 but the NHL actually began in 1917-18.   Season 1917-1918 The National Hockey League took off where the National Hockey Association left off. Four teams played in this inaugural season of the NHL. The Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Hockey Club, Ottawa Senators and the Montreal Wanderers all took part in this season. Montreal Canadiens won the first half of the season while the Toronto Hockey Club won the 2nd half which meant that they... Read more »
  • NHL: The Beginning
    I will take what I deem to be the worst franchise at the time of the game which starts in 31-32. At this time the only team to not win the Stanley Cup or appear in the finals was the Detroit Falcons (Red Wings) and Chicago Blackhawks. I think I will take over the Falcons because that was my uncles fav. team.    *in the event I get fired I will automatically take over the last place team*   NHL A New Era   Up to this point in the NHL there was no drafts and mostly the Canadian teams...

  • Buffalo Bills Video Dynasty (Madden)
    July 15, 2012No matter how much he convinced himself he was ready for the end he still feared the pain, the unknowing, the helplessness of it all.It raced through his mind again: He was going to die.It was God's great equalizer. No matter who you were, how much or how little you had, every man faced the same fate. There was no escape. No one to bargain with, no deals to be made. It was final.It wasn't a thought 93-year old Ralph Wilson liked to contemplate. He knew he had led a rich, full life -- World War II veteran,... Read more »
  • Oklahoma City Bison (Deep Route)
    EDIT: I restarted this franchise with a different Deep Route League after taking a few months off. The first version is alright, though a lot of it gets bland and repetitive. The second version kicks back up approximately 50 years after the first, and I'm trying to put more work and effort into it. To skip ahead to  the 2nd Era, go to page 4, and scroll down.             Our story begins in the 2035 off-season, in a league struggling to retain owners. Oklahoma City was awarded its first franchise, a team that had seen temporary location in Kansas City... Read more »
  • Freeware EHM throwback Nashville dynasty - Free the Sabercat!
        I always liked the freeware version of EHM and had the urge to play it again recently. After toying with a couple of story ideas, here is what I came up with. I will be playing with the default rosters and settings of the game, starting with the 2001-02 season, taking control of the Nashville Predators. Here we go! The Nashville Predators hockey club has appointed Austin Killer as their new general manager. David Poile, who has been with the team since they came into the NHL in 1998, had to resign due to personnal reasons. The... Read more »

  • The Road to the Hall of Fame [OOTP]
    Hi everyone.  After just starting to repost one of my dynasties here I've had a change of heart.  After going back and reposting several posts I feel like I'm doing double work.  Maybe if I started fresh it would work better, or maybe it's just what I'm used to.  I just know for me that if I keep doing that I'm going to abandon it here eventually.  So hopefully this will work out a little better for me, and I'll be doing this dynasty exclusively here.    I've had pretty good success in the past with a narrow focus for...

  • Dysfunctional Dave McGee, a DDS:CB3 Dynasty
    As told by Dave's friend, Michael "Red" O'Connor   Dysfunctional Dave McGee I guess it even surprises me how long I’ve been with Dave. He’s not an easy guy to get along with- hell, he’s impossible to get along with- three ex-wives, not a single other long term friendship, no connection to his family… The man the media has always called “Dysfunctional” Dave McGee is one of a kind. He has a fierce, hair trigger temper, he has been known to get into street brawls, and more often bar brawls, he drinks way too much, he is constantly mad... Read more »
  • Purple Reign: A Vikings Dynasty (Madden 15)
       In 2014, Mike Zimmer took over as head coach of the Minnesota Vikings. He inherited a team full of promising-but-undeveloped youth, in a tough division. A rookie quarterback was ready to shine, alongside a troubled runninback, underperformin receivers, an overpaid tight end, and a patchwork offensive line. A defense that had once been so dominant with stars known round the nation would have to rely on unknown and inexperienced youngsters.      2014 was not a good year for the Vikings. They started off with three losses, before finally defeating a team (their then-undefeated rival, the Green Bay Packers).... Read more »

I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and I lived there until I went off to college to play baseball and get a degree in business.

  • The Super Baseball League [OOTP]
    NOTE: This is also posted here: http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/board/ootp-dynasty-reports/252200-super-baseball-league.html   This morning I really worked on making a fictional league for the first time. My league is (mostly) completed, and it is called the Super Baseball League. I started it in 2002 and simmed the first three seasons to create a bit of history. I have no minors, other than that it is standard MLB settings. I haven't been able to get all the uniforms loaded, so for now I have FaceGens turned off. Here are the SBL teams w/ 2002 standings: And the history: Finances:... Read more »

She was a Boeing 737-200, almost brand new with less than 1,000 hours wear, and her red, white and blue hull arced gracefully through the sky as she banked into the traffic pattern at Logan International.She was a full flight with some 120 people on board including crew, mostly businessmen with a handful of revelers in the back rows determined to paint the city green well in advance of St. Patrick's Day.

  • In a World without Baseball.... [OOTP]
    Scenario: The year is 1972. The United States has not had a functional major baseball league since 1942. The countries focus on World War II drew the populations attention away from the national past-time. And in the process, soccer made it's way into the States after all the soldiers came back home playing it. Chicago SC most recently defeated Los Angeles City in the Champions Playoffs. Sure the game is still played at the juvenile level, but no major league has developed since MLB folded. But some people aren't ready to let the sport die just yet....   News Clipping: Jan....

We'll see young Kip grow and change, both as a person and as a coach as he is influenced by his time and by being about 25-30 miles from Boston.   He hopes to stay with UMass-Lowell for a long time, to see just how far up he can bring them. They are in the lowest Conference and have a Team Prestige rating of 2 (I set it at 0 but when it came up it was... Read more »

    As promised here is the beginning of the tale of the 2013-2014 Florida Panthers...

If life were only that easy!   This is more in depth for a reason, I usually see people asking about favorite players on thier own teams or league leaders, so I'll give the folks a chance to immerse themselves for just a little more work on my end.  There is a weekly phone call/meeting with the...

    Hello All,   I'm looking to shake up the Dynasty boards and start a new type of dynasty, one that focuses not on the general manager but on the development of the players.  I started a game with Mar. 2014 rosters and simmed the game ahead one year.  I then went to the Bantam league and customized three newgens to be the starts of the show.   I will be chronicling their careers as they try to make it to the NHL.  I tried to vary their skill levels and potentials to hopefully get them into the NHL as realistic...

    John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux and Bobby Cox are all enshrined in Cooperstown now but this group of Hall of Famers were only able to win it all once together. That came in 1995. The year before that the Braves made their first appearance in the NL East and found themselves trailing the Expos, but still leading the wildcard race when the strike canceled the season. There are so many questions to answer about 1994 and one of them is could this Braves team have won it all in 1994? We will find out. Opening Day was a successful... Read more »

    Taking over as GM of the Boston Celtics right after winning it all in 1984 is not a bad gig, the pressure is real though. The Larry Bird Celtics would only win one more title after 1984 while Magic and the Lakers would go on to win three more. It is my job to make sure that doesn't happen. The 1984-85 Celtics are loaded and are looking to repeat. So far, the Celtics have looked like champions while the Lakers are battling injuries. Injuries and age are what brought the Celtics down.

    1949 was the last shot for Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, Johnny Pesky and Dom Dimaggio to get that elusive World Series title. It would be one of the all time great pennant races with the Red Sox finishing just short. The offense is there but the Red Sox could never get quite enough pitching. Could I manage this team to the pennant? It won't be easy especially after what happened on Opening Day. Follow along at 1949 Boston Red Sox Season Replay... Read more »

  • Randall DeSevers; A DDS:PB4 Dynasty Report
    October 4, 2014 Atlanta Eagles owner Stewart Malkin has announced the hiring of Randall DeSevers as the team's new General Manager. DeSevers spent time as a D-II head coach with the University of Southern Indiana for several years before joining the Eagles' organization four years ago as lead assistant coach / chief scouting guru. During those four years the Eagles made the playoffs all four times, but failed to get past the Conference Semis in all but his first season (2010-11). The Eagles are looking at a breakout season, however, and will be looking to DeSevers to make big moves... Read more »

I set up a league that is identical to today’s, but with a couple differences (BTW Charlotte’s name change has been noted). Those differences include all fantasy players, as I actually prefer it that way and instead of there being the Oklahoma City Thunder, that team is back in Seattle, as the Sonics. Enter Dr Ben Steward. Dr Steward will be our GM character. He has just been hired by the Sonics... Read more »

I've also been a big fan of the Legacy Option Gary offers in his games (they help transition for long dynasties...which I wouldn't know about). So I bought it and that entails a fresh start here.

    The Origin of Baseball   A number of theories posit that Abner Doubleday was not the true inventor of baseball, but the evidence weighs heavy against them. The vast majority of historical research points to Doubleday inventing the game in May of 1839 in Cooperstown, New York. Doubleday, soon to depart for West Point, set down the official rules to baseball with his boyhood friends. The group had long played stick and ball games, and the future Union general later said that the rules had served as a going away present.   “The games of ball and stick were... Read more »

Back in 2008, the talent that the Phillies had developed and accumulated during their World Series run impressed me. With names like Cole Hamels, Chase Utley, Shane Victorino, Jimmy Rollins, and Ryan Howard, it seemed like the sky was the limit for Philadelphia and they were on the precipice of becoming one of baseball's storied dynasties.
