MAGER RETIRES 3RD ALL-TIME IN RECEPTIONS & YARDS

WR Rob Mager retired after 16 season, and in doing so, finished 3rd all-time in career Receptions and Receiving Yards. Mager had over 1,000 yards in all of his years playing except for one year when he finsished with 938 yards in 2026. Mager unfortunately never won a Gold Cup, finishing 0-3 all-time in his career, losing in 2014 with Madison, 2020 with Rochester, and finally 2025 with Honolulu. Mager finished the 2027 season with 82 catches and 1,033 yards and certainly could have gone another year, but decided it was time for the next chapter in his career. The FIFL wishes Mager the best in his retirement.

FIFL DRAFT 2028

The 2028 FIFL Draft will be posted shortly

Retirements, Rosters, Roster Potentials and the Schedule has been updated, as well as the History Page and Annual (Note, the Sundby tool is goofing up the All-Rookie Team since 2023 so will have to do this manually later).

If the draft order is not correct please chime in. I've only posted what the game spit out. I will review later this week. Also note, GBY and SPR had punters retire so I signed veterans as placeholders for them for now.

NEED SOME HELP WITH TEAM PROFILES????

Since you all don't have the game, and perhaps need some help with what a Dallas Offensive Profile does, or a Bears Defensive Profile really does, I have supplied some examples of what would happen if I ran the NFL teams and what the numbers would be.

Basically, ran 3 seasons using the NFL96 teams... runs 1 and 2 had no injury's set, while run 3 did. Also, season 3, I updated the recordbook on a weekly basis.Use these tools to your advantage. CLICK HERE to view.
