Financials On or Off?

Apologies if this has been covered somewhere deep in the forums before, but I was curious with how many of you play with financials on or off. I have always set up with financials on, but I just set up a present day Royals fantasy draft with financials off and WOW it makes things a lot easier!
I wasn't fully happy with my staff and did some firings. To offer someone a contract without money and not having the loooong wait period to see if they want to join your team or not is excellent!

I always have them on but am wondering if i should turn them off for a new project league of the top 40 players per origination + 1 Negro League team + one pre1900 based on Captain Walrus old All Time League. Having it on makes it look cool and with reserve clause on and trading off I wouldn't have to worry about team nt exactly being able to afford everyone. With it off I would not have to worry about any of that and just focus on the stats.

In my fictional game I keep them off, but since stats are based on pre-1976, the reserve clause is still in effect.

i like it on for what it models and its effects on the simulation. definitely important for FA-era leagues.

never played with it off, so not 100% sure how it handles player choices on accepting contracts etc etc... just the same, less money, i'd assume.

i do get lazy in my league's nowadays... maximizing profit is tedious to me and not very challenging from an entertainment perspective. nowadays, i just set it up learn what i roughly ~average and then change settings to reach that with zero effort. i don't let myself overpsend, ever. i just don't want the tedium of squeezing out that extra 20-100M from gate ticket sales and such. i just set a price and go (well, 1 price for season tickets, then 1 price on opening day, simple enough for my wishes)

my point, you can have your cake and eat it too! with a little self restraint and some genuine honesty.

how? i just bump the market size to make up for difference between what i can do and what the ai will do if delegated to control or some cheaper/static price like i do. i set my projected budgets too. certainly don't lose money either... probably average 100M a year in profits at least. i have a hard salary cap league, so it gets wasted.

You'll find out it sucks when you quickly build a super team and after the 4th straight championship you're like, "umm that was too easy".
