Wow that really sucks. That was my favorite option too. Cause I also used it to play to my strengthes and change things up.
I understand that having a fantasy draft would mess up the connected career but just let the people choose. If you want to do a connected career then you can't do a fantasy draft. Some people just want to draft a team and play with people they normally couldn't. It seems really stupid that they are so concerned about this connected career. What if it sucks... And "they wanted to work on it" how much more improving can you do on a fantasy draft?
