    So far Eagles and Colts need to fix their depth charts. Please if you are a Head Coach read this:

    The player lines need to be the exact format that I give to you otherwise I have to redo stuff by manually pasting it.

     

    have

     

    I've tried copying player lines from your progressions post and is giving me a grey background that I can't remove with the site's formatting tools. Is there a workaround for this or will the grey backgrounds be acceptable on the DC?
