Sports manager games with viewable games?

Can anyone recommend some good free or cheap (i.e. a few dollars) sports manager games in which you can actually watch a decent simulation of the games? I’ve played a few football (soccer) manager sims online and via android but I don’t like the way you set your tactics and formations and then just get told the result, without being able to watch the action and see why your tactics did or didn’t work.

I know some full PC manager games do this, but the free/cheap browser and mobile games don’t seem to, but maybe I haven’t found the right one?

I’d be interested in either single or multi-player games of this type. Any sports are okay, soccer, american football, rugby, hockey, basketball or any made up games or whatever is all good, I can’t find this type of game for any sport. Any platform (flash game, browser game, mobile app, whatever) is all good, just as long as the game costs under $10 or so.

Well I suppose New Star Soccer may fit your interests. The games are viewable to an extent. I enjoyed the game myself. It’s here on Kongregate, but I’m on mobile and I can’t link.

Hm, I don’t know if you just want to watch games without any input or actually do stuff, because FUMBBL is a game that has rules similar to rugby, it’s based on the table top game Blood Bowl which is set in the Warhammer universe. It’s turn based.
Here’s the link if you wanna check it out.
