This was the strike shortened season, however, Mark adhered to the full schedule and replayed the entire season. This replay consisted of 224 regular season games and eight post season games culminating with Super Bowl XVIII. He began this replay in 1994 and finished 1996.
During this replay he used a simple system to determine defensive alignment during neutral downs (die roll 1 – 2 = D, 3 – 4= S, 5 – 6-= G) and introduced the first version of his Situational Down & Distance chart. Those were the only two innovations used, the rest was played “out of the box”.
My APBA Football brother and dear friend appears to be a very good artist since he sketched the artwork on the cover.
