Yeah, this is pretty much my feeling as well.
Also, thinking a bit more about the extension thing, you could argue that the way we do it now (with RFAs) pretty much gives the same result as extensions in real life. In our case, the league acts as agent/negotiator. It decides the market value is, or what the player is willing to accept, and the team then decides if it's willing to pay what the player wants. If not, then another team was going to end up with the player once he became a FA anyways. Our method just speeds up the process a bit.
I also agree with jim that arguing tamate-o/toe-marto is pointless. I also disagree with hichi that this is a glorified auction league. I play all sorts of configurations and nothing feels remotely close to the SCL. It really is quite unique and special IMO.
