Great idea, and make sure that the penalty for leaving a high-goal team is higher than for a lower-goal team!
Again, great idea!
Should be a really small fix, but right now, before starting a season, the board is angry at me because I'm below the desired rank. When opening the board-tab, it does not show the board-members and there is a message box, telling me they will be back soon. There is still another box telling their mood is negative.
I would like to suggest you lose or upgrade that message box. The white color looks pretty ugly against the awesome background. Furthermore, I think it is a good idea to keep the mood "neutral" before the season has started.
Additional suggestion: If I were managing a small team with let's say rank 10 as goal and had to face a high-end team the first round, lose big and end up at the bottom of the ranks, I would see this box telling me the board is really angry at me for losing against a team that for my capability is almost impossible to win from. Maybe the developers can add some sort of weight to certain wins and losses, to make the experience even more realistic and keep the player's spirit up after a first loss. This way players will less likely wind up resigning after a couple of matches, keeping the number of managers per season/league higher and that way create more intensity, as playing against another player is always more interesting than playing against a computer/the house.
Just a small suggestion, would like to hear feedback!
