As a note from me - this is another one of those moments where I'm experimenting with new(ish) content directions. Looking back through the archive, it doesn't appear that sports-sim content has been covered with any kind of consistency for a couple of years now (I could be wrong there, the archive isn't great).
Mark has played a ton of Football Manager, so was especially qualified to talk about GDL. If he wasn't writing for us I'd have probably given it a miss since I'm keen cultivate expertise and knowledge - a lot of the guys have played CCGs as well, which is why that's another area I feel comfortable expanding into.
Fun Fact: the audience here is primarily North American, with a small UK following and then it pretty much fragments to the 'rest of the world'. But with Mark and I based in Europe, topics like Football (or Soccer) come more easily to us than American-based sports. So while I don't want to alienate any of you who may like management games on sports popular over the pond, this IS a way I can try to increase the EU-based following.
Just some insight for you there - If you have any concerns regarding content direction or editorial policy, feel free to contact me directly. Otherwise, let us know what you think of Mark's write-up of GDL!
