Hello, everybody! After a successful three season run in its first year of existence, the need for a second Madden league here on CAG was proven to be true. Comprised mainly of players who felt they were still learning the game, the "JV League" was born.
Throughout those three seasons, members shared tips, discussed strategies, and helped each other improve their skills. When all was said and done, most of us felt that we had taken great strides in our understanding of the game, and weren't so overmatched against more experienced Madden players.
This year, I'd like to build off of that. While this will definitely still be a place for people who feel like they're still learning the game, the bigger emphasis will be on sportsmanship, communication, and sharing tips to help each other improve. In that spirit, I made a joke about changing the name from the "JV League" to the "Gentlemen's League", and ya know what...I'm going to run with it (however, choosing a stripper name that starts with the same letter as your team name to represent yourself is entirely optional, lol).
I'd like the league to be as self sustaining as possible: no nonsense, no constant reminders to play right, few warnings given, a non-negotiable expectation to keep up with the thread, being responsive to PM's, etc. And if people show any difficulty sticking to that, they're gone. What I'd like to avoid is the whole mentality of caring more about winning than caring about playing right. Also, having so and so's friend's, brother's, uncle who likes Madden, but has no idea what this thread is or even what CAG is can be a hinderance more often than not. If you want to be a part of the league, be a part of the league.
I've also been mulling a few settings changes in an effort to make the games as fair as possible. All of these things will be discussed in the thread though before anything is set in stone. So, definitely, anybody who thinks the Gentlemen's League would be a good fit for them, feel free to voice your interest, introduce yourself, weigh in on league policies, bounce around some ideas, etc. I'm excited about the growth that we could see this year, and look forward to us all enjoying some good, friendly, competitive, productive football together.
