SDS Generic Cleat Update - Ideas/Feedback

SDS

So for the past couple of years, I've been complaining/imploring SDS to update their generic cleat models on these forums. Mostly I do this because I find grinding for legends only for them to be wearing block/goofy cleats annoying. Other users have also lampooned me for whining and not acknowledging other problems with the game. I recognize those, but I do not know how to fix them or think it is realistic to ask for major rehauls to the gameplay. Plenty of users do that already anyway.

So instead of complaining, I recently submitted some feedback to SDS through a PPT presentation, where I offer a solution for a potential update. Who knows if the design team ever sees it. However, I figure I might as well put my money where my mouth is. I have included a link to this PPT presentation and would like to know what the Nation thinks. Any upvote or constructive feedback is appreciated.

So you don't use Andre Dawson because of his cleats even though he is your favorite player? Also, are you saying players from different eras have different generic cleat styles based on that era? I have never noticed any of that. I'm too busy trying to track the ball and hit dingers.

I play this game too much and am a world series level player. So I guess design details start becoming more salient. Yes, I have never used an Andre Dawson card because he looks so generic that it bothers me. So if I have a choice between say Eric Davis (who they did right) or Dawson, I'll pick Davis.

Yes, SDS uses two generic models for all players without branding associated with the show. One is used for more modern players (e.g., Alomar), which I tried to illustrate with the PPT.
