Welcome to the NFC Conference of the CAG Madden 09 League! This thread is mainly for team owners. It is a continuation of the old league thread that never seemed to get off the ground. If you're looking for the AFC thread, primetime is putting that one together.

The League Ownership Roster is as follows: LEAGUE CLOSED TO NEW OWNERS

CAG ID – TEAM - PSN ID - TIME ZONE – REGISTERED?
Posted Image1.
Posted Image2.
Posted Image3.
Posted Image4. Lexian - Cowboys - PeeKAY53 - ??? - YES
Posted Image5.
Posted Image6. Thomas96 – Vikings – Thomaticus - EST - YES
Posted Image7. PapiCjullo - Panthers - PapiChullo - ??? - YES
Posted Image8. CD6405 - Cardinals - CD6405 - EST - Yes
Posted Image9.
Posted Image10. Dr. Strangepork - Saints - ChizelMonkee - CST - YES
Posted Image11. n/a - 49ers - Captainghost - ??? - YES
Posted Image12. pinoyunggoy - Giants - bassek - PST - YES
Posted Image13. Bhay99 – Redskins - Bhay99 - ??? - YES
Posted Image14.
Posted Image15. metrognome - Falcons - Metrognome - YES
Posted Image16. m_d_amore - Bucs - mdam0re - ??? - YES

Most of the categories above should be self-explanatory. The REGISTERED? category simply means that I've confirmed that you are registered in the league by checking through the Madden game itself.

WHAT DO YOU, AS AN OWNER, NEED TO DO?
1) Check you CAG PM and PSN mailbox for league name and password. If you didn't get it from me via PSN it is probably b/c you haven't added me as a friend. Look for my friend request and say "yes." I won't bite!

2) Register for the league. Please do so ASAP. I'll see how the initial registrations go but if you don't register "soon" I'll probably give your space away after contacting you one last time.

3) Play games and have fun!:lol: SPECIAL NOTE: The league has started! You don't need to wait for the league to be full to start playing games. As long as you can find the other owners who have signed up you can play them. START PLAYING NOW!!

4) We've set up a league night to play so that there is a common time that you can exepct people to be on.
CAG NFC GAME NIGHT

Tuesdays @ 10:30pm ET (9:30CT, 8:30MT, 7:30PT)
.

Join one of the private lobbies to see who is online: Lobby name: CAG NFC Password: CAG


INTERESTED IN JOINING THE LEAGUE?
As of this writing there are teams available. You can claim a team by posting in this tread. Claims are first-come-first-served. If any of the original owners above relinquish their team, you'll see an adjustment to the owner roster and thread title saying so. We'd love to have you. (Check the AFC thread too in case there are openings there too).

Thanks for everyone's patience in getting this up in running. Look for future posts about league settings etc.

Thanks

Dr. Strangepork/ ChizelMonkee
NFC Commissioner (boy aren't I important!:applause:)

Abbreviation: NFCCG
Max Users: 16
Games: 1
Max DNF%: ANY
Unique Rosters: Yes
Enable Draft: No
Trades: Restricted
Playoff: Yes

Random Weather: Yes


If you have any questions about what these settings mean, let me know. I'll do my best to answer.

Good catch. I missed that when I was reviewing the messages. The owner's list is updated.

Has there been any discussion on establishing a weekly night to get together for games? It would be cool to set up a Private room called NFC CAG for people to meet up and chat while waiting for their week's opponent. Obviously we would try to find a median night/time that would work for a majority, and anyone who can't make that night can just work that out with their opponent. It would also be cool so any people who wanted to play more could run some exhibitions with other league members. We could also extend this to the AFC CAGs.

Another thing that might be cool is for people to save their good highlights after their games and post them in this thread to build some good community around the league.

Just some ideas while we wait for everybody to get registered...

I did join the league, so I'm in. So the winner from the NFC CAG league will play the winner from the AFC cag league?

Made the change to EST on the owner's roster.

That right, primetime is running the AFC. Once each league/conference champion is settled, they will play in the Super Bowl. Frankly, I'm not sure what playoff format Madden uses for its online leagues. There were no settings other than "Playoffs Y/N." It could be a 4 team playoff, it could be 8 teams, it could be 16, it could have wild cards. Who knows? It wasn't in the skimpy manual that came with the game. :D

shame how they take most of the information away from the manual and throw it in the 14.99 guide.

I've had a few questions along the lines of "when do we start?"

The league has started! You don't need to wait for the league to be full to start playing games. As long as you can find the other owners who have signed up you can play them. START PLAYING NOW!!

The other owners are being added all the time. As of this writing there are 4-5 owners signed up so everyone has 3-4 games they could be playing now!!

Get going, talk smack, and have fun!

ehh, i don't like playing with a 4-3 defense, but since the dolphins are the only ones left in the AFC and the other 3-4 teams are all taken, i suppose i could deal with being the giants, as much as i hate she-li. think i can get in on this dr. strangepork?

yeah i know but the personnel isn't matched for it. i usually only play with the chargers (obviously) steelers cowboys and browns when playing madden, since they run 3-4 and have the personnel to do it. messing with it and making a 4-3 team into a 3-4 team messes everything up, esp if they don't have good OLBs and a good second MLB.

oh btw dr strangelove i'm PST for my time zone.

The Giants were claimed a few posts earlier. Is there another team you'd like? The 49ers and Bucs are available right now. Others *may* become available (or not).

"When do you plan on starting?"

It has already started but you can easily catch up. I think only one games has been played so far. See earlier posts for an explanation of how the scheduling works.
