DIETICIAN
Posted by Vick Hall on Monday, May. 20th, 2024 at 10:48 PM
ok here is the next proposal for a brb to discuss. Decided to use one of James´ ideas this time.  The brb is clearly transgender. Probably played for Brighton or Lewes (or maybe Forest Green)
 
DIETICIAN

Why?
 
We all get fond of some of our players and this BRB may keep a few of your favorite players in the game for longer. The kind of BRB that Arsene Wenger introduced when he took over at Arsenal and is now a common aspect of the modern game.
 
What does he do?
 
Puts some of your outfield players on a regular nutritionally improved diet (no beer even for a Beerman team!) to help lengthen the span of their playing careers. 2-3 players Age III or above age 2 levels less than normal. Not applicable to GK or SW positions.
 
Issues to Consider
 
How many players (or levels) should this brb apply his benefits too?
 
Advantages/Disadvantages to this BRB?
 
Is there a downside to keeping a few players in the game for a bit longer. Managers may need less money to replace ageing stars not so often and maybe less urgency to bring through youth players. However, teams will still need 8 youth players to play in the Youth Cup.
 
This brb will have no immediate effect when hired in his first year until season end when players age, unlike other brb´s who have more of an immediate impact. He still needs to be on your staff for a full year to be used at season end.
 
To help you weigh up the benefits of this brb, James provided some analysis The existing coach BRB saves a team 30-40 CP a year based on 3-4 players being coached per session and is worth more to a winning team than a losing one, but is also worth more to a weak team than a strong one. To have a rough equivalence the Dietician could only work on 2 players a season (2 levels), saving around 40CP. A fully trained Age 1 lvl 10 player with help from a Dietician each year from age 3 onwards could end up an Age 8 lvl 11 player. Give him the Captaincy and you have a lvl 19 player on your books which is why the Dietician can only be used for outfield players (Df/Mf/Fw).   End of Season levels (with Captaincy) - 1/15, 2/16, 3/16, 4/17 (21), 5/17 (22) , 6/16 (22) , 7/14 (21) , 8/11 (19).     

Readers Comments

As this is my idea, I like it a lot, but worry this BRB may be quite powerful.  Interested in what everyone else thinks.  Having a long lived player who you coach every season maybe very tempting but does mean putting a lot of resources into one player and a single injury could be ruinous.

James Tucker on Tuesday, May. 21st, 2024 at 12:00 PM
 

Doesn't seem  like a terrible idea. I wonder what the impact on the game might be (if any). Top talent at age 6+ would unique. What about something similar but as a Superstar BRB. Just a brainstorm here: 

~ During the age I and II seasons, a superstar does not lose Skill Level points during aging. Stanard aging begins after the age III season.

~ A superstar may only be assigned when a player is age I, and must be selected by the Captain's deadline.

~ A team may only have one superstar on the roster per season. 

~ Not sure how to deal with trades that involve superstars. Maybe superstars cannot be traded? If they can be traded, how to address the team that now has two superstars?

Just some thoughts.

Brian Beerman on Tuesday, May. 21st, 2024 at 3:57 PM
 

This seems a little too powerful. What are the numbers like with ageing 1 less rather than 2 less 

And/or the maximum captain's bonus being 5. SL 20+ seems high 

Steve Turner on Tuesday, May. 21st, 2024 at 7:34 PM
 

Brian - watch this space for other ideas around superstars 

Roger Mendonça on Tuesday, May. 21st, 2024 at 9:44 PM
 

I think 2 is the right number if you link it in comparison with the Ciach who is adding benefit to your team throughout the season, not just at year end.  As for the Captain´s bonus, potentially this does see big, but as James mentioned the risk of adding the bonus to such an old player is catastrophic if he gets a bad injury. It also costs a lot in terms of CP to get him fully fit in the first place, unless you sit him out of the first 6 matches of the season.

Vick Hall on Tuesday, May. 21st, 2024 at 9:46 PM
 

Personally, I love this idea but do have concerns around how increased player longevity might affect how many young players you have to bring through the ranks every year.  As balancing youth development is a core part of the game, getting this wrong could cause issues that might not become clear for a few seasons. I like Steve's suggestion of only ageing 1 level less as it would minimise that risk.

Roger Mendonça on Tuesday, May. 21st, 2024 at 10:01 PM
 

My feeling is that if you only age i level less this coach is just too weak potentially in comparison to others. I would not worry too much about balancing youth development. I think you only really need to bring through three youth players each year and there are often youth players to pick up in the auction too that you can pick up to balance things off.

Vick Hall on Friday, May. 24th, 2024 at 11:29 AM
 

I like this idea but think that perhaps it is too powerful. As an alternative, to Steve' suggestions, maybe just allow dietician to operate on one player rather than two.
