Maybe only Vlhova .... she's a pretty good GSL as well, and way cheaper than Shiffrin .... Holdener is more of a pure slalom specialist even though she is a decent downhill/SG racer and therefore one of the best in the Alpine combination ... we'll see ... need to do some math before i deside :D
Saturday 11.Nov 14:00, 2017
Wow ... Vlhova .... Shiffrin WILL get her hands full this season .... oh my god ... she race like a man :D ... and podium Vlhova, Shiffrin and Holdner lookes like a regular thing this season ... nobody else even close to those 3 girls .....

Okey ... my suggestion to this new game
I accept the steep budget
8 changes per transition window ... to show that you got controll over preparation to important parts of the season, like 4 hill tournement, tour de Ski, Olympics and the finals and wc standings in the end of it ... you don't need to use all of course, but to have room for recovering in the gc in case you miss big time with your first setup, injuries and so on ...
window 1 before new year
window 2 before the olympics and
window 3 after the Olympics
Then we can have a Captain spot and two Vice-captain spots ( like the FC game ) for each weekend to show that you got controll over the different disciplines and distances, and to create a lasting dynamics through the season ... this might require some sort of programing to the game i guess
I think this budget makes this game nerdy enogh in it selfes, so the weekend to weekend activety won't make much difference participate-vice
The "PROBLEM" for the weekend to weekend activety is biathlon and partly alpine skiing ... biathlon got long weekends from wednesday to sunday, and alpine got midweek races .... but I bet we can find a smart practical solution to that :)))

Yeah, budget is a bit tight, but interesting. I like the concept. No chance of forgetting Thursday deadlines, like last season.
No surprise who my team captains will be. :P

It?s time to alter it. Think the budget is fine. Thinking about letting teams having 20 changes whenever you want (kicks in, lets say next monday night at 23.59).

I guess it's like a like a Curse in the church :D
I think this budjet is WAY too nerdy. ... and that combined with only 4 changes per 3 transition windows, you really need to sit down and bery your brain in result lists, calander and wc standings ....
I suggest a budjet 1200 and 15 changes per Windows ..... or at least something inbetween :)))

:D .... well, the women will race today .... in the exact same pathways as the guys ..... that never happens in world cup exept here ... and while the guys think it's a pretty steep and difficult course, the women find it even wors ( sorry Lindsey https://www.google.no/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/early-lead/wp/2017/10/26/lindsey-vonn-says-women-seen-as-pony-show-in-world-cup-skiing/ ) .... and when it's the first race of the season, it's a BRUTAL start for the women .... my favourite of the day is without doubt Mikaela Shiffrin ... ahead of Tessa Worley and Lara Gut .... biggest outsider must be this REALLY tough Italian girl Sofia Goggia .... I hope the norwegian girs can show a little more currage than they usaly do on this course ... my best hopes is for Ragnhild Mowinckel to make a top 10 result :))) Nina Løseth is really scared of this icy steep pathways ... so I don't expect much from her .... so now is the time to surprise me :))

Yeah :D .... that i can belive by the looks of your profile picture .... well, a spot is open on the podium in downhill and SG after Ilka Stuhecs injury .... she will be gone all season .....
But then again ... Lindsey Vonn is back better than ever ( she claims ) .... so I guess she will fill that hole :D

The Alpine season is unerway guys .... some questions popes up in my patriotic head ... will Hirscher continue to dominate the over all standing, or will the norwegians finally give him a serious fight for it .... first comes to mind, of course, Aksel Lund Svindal, with the highest potential ... but his injury history sais, that won't happen ... I am sure ALS will win some races early in the season, but I doubt he can keep going throughout, and participate in every race .... he got the Olympics on his mind, and will for sure rest his knee for that, so ALS will not win over all this season
Next norwegian in the hierarchy is Kjetil Jansrud. ... always the guy closest to Hirscher when ALS is injured, but time and time again, he fails .... I think he got a chance of course, but I will be surprised if he can punish Hirscher
Then we got Henrik Kristoffersen. ... his fantastic technique has brought him an insane amont of success in young age. Kristoffersen is back in on the national team after a couple of years arguing with the norwegian ski association about his right carry sponsors brand on his equipment ....
From what i seen of this guy lately, he looks like a guy enjoing his time in the gym, and has gain some muscle mass .... it will be interesting to see how that will affect his technique in slalom, and if it will improve his giant slalom ... Kristoffersen is a candidate for the overall standings if he has kept his unique technique in slalom, and improved his giant slalom
4th option is Aleksander Aamodt Kilde .... and this is actually imo, Hirschers worst competitor for the overall this season .... together with Alexis Pinturault and an on form Carlo Janka, this sports most versatile athlet. ... He can downhill, he can SG, he can giant Slalom and alpine combine ... podium and winning candidate in all exept giant slalom ... he is the strongest guy in the sport, great technique and now, after some years on top level, experiment and knows all the courses on the tour ... if he can stabilize a little bit, he can win the overall trophy this season ..... actually, I put my money on him :)))
