So after we play the regular season and the playoffs, then we play the winner from the AFC league?


That's right.

5 guys still have 0 games played and are never online (at least when I check).

Maybe it's time to find out if they are still gonna participate.


Yeah, I know what you're saying. We're only a few weeks into this though. However, I think if one just waits until they find another league player online, then they may never connect with some owners to play. Not everyone's schedule matches up the same. Some of us are online quite often, others not so much.

There's nothing to prevent you from using CAG through this forum or through PM to arrange game times. For those hard to reach owners, I'd suggest reaching out to them directly to see if they are responsive. Hopefully they will be. A nice friendly "Hey, I'd like to play you when do you think you'll be online?" message may be the way to go at first.

Know that everyone who is registered now has already gone through the "hey I haven't heard from your or seen you register, are you still interested?" filter if they were initially unresponsive. Everyone in the leuage so far has either played a game or said "yes, I'm still interested."

Having said all that, I do believe that the inactive owners have a responsibility to arrange games too. Adding the other owners as a friend isn't enough if their schedule doesn't match with everyone else's. While they active players can help the process, it isn't their job to arrange the games of others.

At some point (soon?) I suspect we'll have to cut some inactive owners out. At that point we'd either open the teams back up or go with a smaller league. I'd like to make that decision with your input and primetime's too (the AFC commish).

Thanks for the feedback. I'll take another look at the level of activity this weekend and see where we stand.

One Thing I'd Like to see that could help with some of this is to set up a weekly night/time that we could vote on for everyone to try to meet up and play. It would speed up games and maybe give the less active owners a time to know when to get games in.

My best time is any Monday thru Thursday around 11pm EST or Sunday evening.

So if everybody wants to post their ideal day/time they'd like to see a meetup we might be able to get this going...

of course if you dont think its a good idea Strangepork, you can always veto...

No, that's actually a good idea. I like it let's run with it and see how it pans out. Can I nominate you to compile the results?

For me, I can be available most nights after 9:30 central time.

Best nights for me are Mon & Wed, after about 8 EST. Then Sunday's after football.

I apologize for not having gotten any games in yet. I'm going to try and knock some out this week. Send me a PM or message on PSN if you want to get a game. I usually do a little better w/ scheduled times.

Yo Commish,

Could you send out some PMs to the rest of the owners to check out the thead and vote, just in case some of them aren't checking back here regularly. Also a couple of them aren't on CAG, what should we do about them?

Why don't you go ahead and contact them through PM? I hope you don't mind. You've seem to have made some progress and that's great! I've just put so much time getting us to 16 registered owners that I'm a bit drained on this right now. I'm glad that other owners like you have stepped up to make the league better. Keep running with it. It takes work, but you'll get there.

As for the two non-CAGers. Fortunately, they do seem to be active. You could ask them though PSN . . . or ignore them.

Your call.

That's great! Thanks for taking this on. Maybe when you find the winning night we can let the other conference know and they can adopt that time as well just to make it easy for them too.

Hey good game m_d_amore. I couldn't do a thing in the passing game. And Dunn hurt me, seemed like he kept getting 5-7 yards on every carry.

Gameplay note: It was a little frustrating that I wasn't able to run off tackle when the line was stacked all the way in the middle most of the time. Didn't make much sense. Maybe it was just that my line sucked.

I'm actually out of town for the next 2 weeks, and I'm one of the owner's with no games played as of yet. I'm generally online after 9PM (put the kids to bed then) until about 11pm. Those are central times...

When I get back on the 29th of September, I'll do my best to start catching up on games, should be able to get 3/4 in a week if I can catch people.

What day of the week would you like to see a meetup for owners to play games? since your one of the ones who hasn't played many, once we get a night set up it should help you get in at least one solid night a week to play league games...

Just a reminder, if it isn't obvious already, if you want your game to count as a league game can you have to issue or accept an invite for a league game not just any online game. Don't miss out on a win just because you issued the wrong invite.

Yes, this has happened.

FYI to the league -

I've contacted three owners who haven't played a game yet. I've given them until Tuesday to play or I will release their teams. A forth owner has dropped from the league without explanation. I will make that team available shortly.

I've seen my role as commissioner as mainly ensuring that we all have opponents to play. If replacements for these teams are necessary, I hope to have them soon.

Thanks to all of you who continue to play and make the league fun!
