Is there any way to get alot of money?

A few years back I played OOTP 16 and I created a fictional league. I set the financial option to the time of the 1870s. I remembered that the team that I was with had a lot of money. I would sign a lot of players and we would lead the division every time. I had over a million dollars when I had that save. Is there any way to get back to something like that in OOTP 19? Is there like an option or feature that will make the team that you are with have a lot of money and you can just blow most of the money to get superstars?

just as before, sure.

you will have to make choices about who gets how much... even distribution or not etc etc...

depends on those choices, i'm making assumptions based on what you wrote:

use market sizes and change local media contract value -- disproportionately helps the larger markets. (there's an option to make both local and national even for all too, but default should be static nat'l, dynamic on the local)

you can also change any of the revenue streams as you want. if you go the market size route above, make sure yo have a 10+ market (team settings).

obviously, things like gate revenue will help more successful teams in the moment than losing teams.

you could also reduce expenses. excess revenue will result in people getting paid more for the various jobs -- players and personnell. the players will get the bigger chunks, of course, but if all teams have excess revenue, they will spend above baseline for 'baseline-quality' coaches and such too.

since you don't have to worry about player contracts, you shouldn't have to worry about ramifacations of any imbalance too much. whatever you do, you may want to zoom out enough years for teams to turnover and spot check any problems on the finance reports or team front offices.

bottom line is that you can control every single revenue stream and expense to some effect.

It's actually easier than all of that. Enable commish mode in the Manager Options screen, and then one of the fields available under the Team Settings screen is Cash:

one-time thing, sure. this sounded more like an every year thing. eventually, it will take more time and attention to do it that way.

Actually, budget amount is FAR MORE important than cash. Your team can have the maximum amount of cash available, however if your budget is low, you will not be able to spend it.

OOTP does not get how budgets and cash work in real life, so I have learned the only way around is to increase budgets.

That's a question I always wanted to be answered and work for all of us. Starting a business or having some exra luck is the only way I suppose.
