Eww. I'm not keen on the risk of borking up all my players in one import.

Two seems... completely and utterly not worth it.
Although there is much potential for things to go foul during a conversion, and doubly so for a double conversion, Markus seems nonchalant about it. I'd like to use the new endurance system.

I don't think a double import is any trouble at all.  Whether the double import is worth it or not is certainly a matter for debate, but the "trouble" of doing it is just setting aside a couple hours to get it done.

the new endurance system will be in place in v9 whether we do a double import or direct import from 6.5 to 9.  I'd rather do a direct import to keep endurance ratings as they currently are instead of doing a double import and potentially changing a large portion of my pitchers endurance ratings.

I think we'll try the direct import first.

I voted 9 but I like both versions so using either one will be perfectly fine with me. I chose 9 because I'm not sure we should wait too much longer to advance to a version, if we are going to ever, beyond the current 6.5. It also gives us a wider recruiting pool of potential GMs, although this hasn't been a problem...."yet", emphasis on yet.

OK, I bought 9 this weekend.  Seems a lot like 8.  Cleaner look and some nice stuff brought back like the standings page with league leaders listed in the margins.
