Pretty sure you have that wrong. While it's not an endless supply of money, you have to decide what the best way to spend it on Day 1 or take a penalty. If I have 130m for players, coaches and prospects, I can change what I'm doing over and over again thus covering for my poor decisions on Day 1 and beyond.
What I think you're missing is we don't know the best way to spend it on Day 1. We don't have a lot of information we'll get later on FAs, Coaching, Int FAs, players available for trade, etc. So we guess. Yes, there's some strategy. But it's mostly guessing.
What I know you don't get is that not everyone can log in every day. One of my worlds filled & started during 2 day period where I wasn't able to change my budget. So now my team is in worse shape for seasons to come, as I'll have to lose money to spend it as I'd like to. I understand you never face a day you can't long into WIS, so I don't expect you to understand this or think it's something that should be changed.
Another improvement would be to allow budgets to be set any time between rollover & the schedule starting. A topic for a different tread. I've given up on WIS doing anything to improve HBD.
