Unfortunately there wasn’t much management involved in Chaos League (Which I do own.). I’m looking for something with an emphasis on management. Training, stats, upgradable stadiums. A glorified spreadsheet if you will. Something like an early Football Manager.
There’s this old game called M.U.D.S. that might be worth a look. The management aspect was pretty elaborate, perhaps more elaborate than the action game (which can be given to the AI, IIRC). And it’s probably the only game that allowed the player to bribe not only the refereee, but also the ‘ball’.
Does it allow you to manage the team, have transfers, upgrade your stadium, train players, deal with media, etc. for a career starting in lower leagues and working your way up like Baseball Mogul or Premier Manager does?
