Since the last one failed terribly I'm making another league. I'm holding spots open for players from the last league who actually played their games. I'd like to limit this to eight teams and I think we'll be playing each other 3 teams, except there will be one team you only play once, with a four team playoff. The goal for this league would be to play at least two games per week. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

I'd like to make this have the same settings as the last league, so we will be playing with default sliders (unless someone has a good set) on All Star difficulty. Does anyone remember if we played 6 or 7 minute quarters?

If we are able to get through this I will throw in a prize for the winner. I'm not sure what that is right now, but it will at least be an 800 MS point card.

I'll be taking the Warriors

XXXplosive1 (XXXplosive1) - Pistons
Matt Young (X Matt Young X) - Lakers
Immortal Fwd (Immortal Fwd) - Suns
Frankysox (Frankysox) - Warriors
Weavshow - Celtics
-Goodfella- (Juan C) - Cavaliers
MSUHitman (MSUHitman) - Hornets
dudedizzle27 (Foolishpenny) - Rockets

Waiting List:
shinryuu (awwjayzin)
Soodmeg (Soodmeg)
I will send out the league name and password to those on the waiting list on Friday at 10 pm if the league is not full by then.

I think we played 7 minute quarters. I was semi-active in the previous league until my 360 got the RRoD. The 360 should come back again this week (aiming for Thursday). I'd normally take the Clippers, but I think I'll be the Thunder this time around.

Yeah I think you had quite a few games in so I'll put you down.

Actually, scratch that I'll be the Clippers again-- I forgot that we'll probably be using the latest rosters so I'm happy with Z-Bo.

Awesome. So does the new league start with current rosters? It'll be nice to have another weapon in J-Rich this time around!

Rockets please


I'm surprised you didn't go with the Heat.


On another note, right now Stephen Jackson and Monta Ellis are on reserve on the latest roster update. Does anyone know if I'll be able to add them in my lineup to play with in this league? If not I definitely do not want to be the Warriors. One more team to go.

I was also thinking it would be nice if we had each of the other seven teams on our friend list so it would make it easier to get a hold of each other to play games. It'd also be cool if people traded in this league.

I don't think there is such a thing as an 800 point card, though I may be wrong. I'll join today, though. I don't care about a prize, unless it's your sister. ;)

If people want to add me, request Matt Young 951.

Wow the other one failed? Lame.

I cant believe how bad CAG in general sucks at finishing leagues. I am aware I bailed but it was really really early on because I knew I couldnt finish most of it.

Its almost like Gamefaqs level.

Yeah they just came out with the 800 point card, I saw one at CC.

Yes it's not good, hopefully this one will work though. These are the players who actually played their games from the last league. What's really sad is there were people in there who hadn't played one game, I just don't get it.

Yeah, it's frustrating. I've been participating in CAG leagues since the 2K5 sports games and none of them have ever finished. Well, the NCAA 09 dynasty finished 1 year, but I was forced to drop since my game stopped working.

Hooray for 800 point cards, too.

After we have our next team I'll give everyone two days to join up and enter the league.

Give me till Thursday in the afternoon to join because I have finals this week. That should be in the 2 day limit you previously states anyway. Oh and I actually think it'd be awesome if we had a draft but I think we should take a vote from the 8 players though. If not at least trade (they'll be easier with people actually getting on to look at trade proposals.) I'm really looking forward to this! By the way, I didn't take the heat because I'm not to good with my home team in this game but if we have a draft I'll switch to the Heat. Then again, I believe you already made the league.

Well you will be able to join in two days no problem. However I'm not going to delay the deadline once we have everyone, that's already a bad sign your going to have problems playing your game if you can't take five minutes and get online to join the league in a 2 day period. No exceptions, there is no deadline as of now though. Hopefully we will get our last player tonight.

Yeah I'm looking forward to it as well, I already created it and I think the best way to do this is just use the teams instead of drafting. As history shows it would probably be damn near impossible to have everyone get on at the same time to do a draft.

Hah, no I just don't have the time I won't be home and if I am I probably won't find the time. But after Thursday which a player had already stated can't sign up until (RROD Clippers - no exceptions ;)) I will be done with classes and can sign up and play. Not to mention, in the old league, I picked up a team which someone ditched and quit and immediately played and won 2 games. So there's no need to worry about my trustworthiness. I will be signed up and ready to go by Thursday which already meets your 2 day deadline.

I like the idea of trades, too. I can't shoot over 20% from 3 with Ray Allen to save my life, so I'd be willing to move him for some depth. Sorry, Tony Allen.

Yeah nobody traded last time so I'd like to see more of that this time around. I'd definitely be interested in Ray Allen. If you join the league we can start proposing trades anytime from the 2ksports website.

Dudedizzle I wasn't calling you out or anything, I know you'll be able to play because you were pretty easy to get a hold of for a game. And yeah if the RROD guy doesn't get his system back by the deadline, well oh well, we can find other players. I want to get this started right.

All right everyone is signed up and good to go, everyone needs to be signed up by Friday at 8:00am or else I'll find a replacement. Lets actually have a successful league here at CAG.

Are you going to write up a strict code of ethics and list of rules? If not, we'll have too many cheesers and won't be able to maintain a successful league. </AceFan>

Only FrankySox will get that.

Props to Franky for getting this new league on the right track; keeping the number of teams to a small amount and made up with the group of players that were actively playing their games in the "dead" league. I gotta admit that 20 teams was a bit greedy on my part and the people that were signing up and didn't even show up to play a single game was really disappointing. I had no problems with some of people that dropped out because at least they had the courtesy to let me know that they wanted out.

This new league has the making of being an very active because like I said before, the members were the same that kept the other one alive. Too bad I didn't show up on time to sign up but oh well :( ....I'm rooting for you guys!
