I know that there are many Football gamers out there who use the Fletch67 system to determine defensive line settings, but something has always bothered me about it – it seems “one-sided.” You only take into account the defensive point totals in determining the line setting.
I have taken the basic concept of Fletch67 and modified it so that it also takes into account the offensive point total. So, in my system, you would COMPARE the defensive point total with the offensive point total before rolling the dice to get your line setting.
Let’s say that the defense has 42 points and the offense has 36. This is a +6 for the defense. That means that dice roll result 11-36 would result in the most favorable defensive line setting, 41-56 would be “Standard” and 61-66 would be more favorable to the offense.
I’d love to hear any feedback on this innovation, especially if you have a way that you get line settings that might be different.
