Hm. Let's see...This will be cinematic football (even downright cartoonish). I think it would be fun if the players even had special abilities/feats that really made their character's pop. Understandably - sports gaming is going to be a challenge. But I think it may be fun if done right.
Don't tell the thousands of Blood Bowl players that!Any system where you move miniatures around one at a time wouldn't really work very well for football, IMO.
