oops. sorry I am late tonight. I think from the past two weeks we probably don't need to set up a room anyway since there's no way to jump straight into a league game from there. From now on on Tuesdays, just sign in and go to the league page, see who's on and send a PSN message or an invite. As long as we all know to try to get in games on Tuesdays it should still speed up the league...Sorry again

I think you are probably right. Captainghoast and I were on a few minutes early and just got going (he won :().

Looks like a lot of owners were playing tonight. Good stuff!

Hey Guys -

I am traveling for work this week and won't be in town for Tuesday's League night. I'm going to reach out to some owners individually to see if I can get a game in Sunday or Monday. (Papichilo, I' coming after you!!! :))

Good luck, have fun, and keep playing!

Fellas,

I just moved into a new place over the weekend and don't have cable/intenet/phone yet. They are supposed to come out early next week to hook everything up, so I should be back up and running by the middle of next week to get some games in.

I should be on around 10:30ish as usual.

Remember anybody who gets on for a game tonight, just go straight to the league standings and see who's on to play. PSN message to set up games of course. See you in the trenches!

Guys

THe NFL season is about halfway through. I figured it might be a good time to update you all on the number of games played.

On an individual level, here's how it stands:

PSN ID # Played % of Season
Metrognome 8 67%
Bhay99 7 58%
Thomaticus 7 58%
Tbuckner 7 58%
ChizelMonkee 7 58%
mdam0re 6 50%
bassek 5 42%
Captainghost 5 42%
l1nd 4 33%
PKay53 3 25%
RedWingLion 3 25%
NotoriousROB 2 17%
Papichillo 2 17%

I think that puts us at about 42% of all games needed to be played. Thanks to Metrognome for leading the way!

If you're at the top of the list, ping those owners at the bottom and see if you can arrange a time to play. l1nd and NorotiousRob haven't been online in 10+ days, so I wonder what they are up to and Papi say he'd be back online this week so hopeyfully you can hook up with him too.

Remember to join us on Tuesday nights for league night as well!
Otherwise, keep playing and have fun!!

PS - I haven't had any nibbles for awhile so I'm going to close the league to new owners. FYI ALso, I haven't heard from the AFC in awhile, I'll see how they are doing.

Update on my internet, Verizon messed up the order and aren't going to be able to make it out until 11/3, so I'll be back up and running then.

Sorry I haven't been around for league night. I've been traveling for work the last few Tuesdays and will be for this Tuesday as well. I'm updating my list on who I have to play so expect some invites from me directly.

Keep playing!!!! I'm 2-4 and having fun!

Well, it looks like TBuckner dropped as the Cards. He didn't say anything to me but he isn't on the roster anymore on Madden online.

Also, PSN says l1nd and NotoriousROB haven't been online in 34 days and 29 days respectively. I'll reach out to them but I suspect they are done. It would be too bad to lose them as they've already played some games (4 and 2 respectively).

I'll let you know if I have any updates.

I think so. With you added we'd be a 13- team league so that means you'd have to play 12 games plus playoffs.

Can you commit to that? Some teams have played 5, 6, or 7 games while others have played only a handful. You'd have to catch up but you're only a few games "behind."


If you can commit, I say you're in. We're playing NFC teams in this league. Who are you interested in? Check the first post in this thread for availability.


Love to have you

Yea, I can commit. Played in an MLB 08 league on CAG and I run one on another forum.

If this thing is still surviving then I'll take Green Bay.

Yeah, we're limping along. About half of the games for the season have been played, but some owners are more active than others.

Check your CAG PM for login instruction.

Fun game with madam0re last night. I lost (again) but had my first kickoff return for a TD. Bush broke 6 tackles. Of course, the kickoff was right after madam0re had just returned an INT for a TD. 7 INTs in the whole game. 5 by me. I was lucky the game ended up being 17-14. It could've been a lot worse. Of the 4 TDs, only one was by a "regular" offensive play.

Fun nonetheless.


Quick update, The Notorious ROB has dropped. Sounds like he sold his PS3 or something like that. Also, I haven't heard from l1nd and he hasn't been online in over a month. I'll assume he is out. I figure I have to drop them from the league or playoffs won't start. However, I'll wait until all the other games are played to make I *have* to drop them to move on to the playoffs. They were both 1 and 1, so I imagine it may affect some of the other owners' records.

Keep playing! Have fun. I only have 4 more games to play!!!

Sounds like a few of those that dropped are people I hadn't played yet. I don't know how many games I have left, I know I gotta play Thomaticus.

I'll be on Tuesday night as usual if anyone wants to get a game in, league or non.

Played again tonight against PeKay's Cowboys. Fun game and a close one although I came up on the short end 21-20. Saw more fumbles than INTs for the first time and had another one of those frustrating punt return fumbles for a TD where the kicking team hits you right when the ball comes to the KR player. Oh well, I've benefitted from that one too.

I've played 8 games. There are 12 teams in the league but I expect at least 2 and maybe as many as 4 to drop. They've only played 1 to 3 games so far and haven't played any recently.

For the rest of us . . . Keep Playing!!! We're getting there!

GG Doc, that was one of the weirdest games ever with all the turnovers. I only had one offensive TD all game, your def was pretty frustrating. And yeah, I was waiting for that fair catch for the punt but it never came!

I think I often panic under the "pressure" of a punt return. I always forget the right faircatch button or at least to RAN AWAY!!

You do have a pretty sweet running game though. I can't run for crap in most cases.

I'm surprised the league and CAG isn't more active with Madden though. It is pretty fun and I'm not even a big football guy.

Hi all-

CD6405 is joining the league probably as the Cardinals. Hit him up with an invite and challenge him to a league game. Glad to have him.

I think that will be the last new owner that we'll add for this season. I don't want to keep changing the expectations on how many games we'll all need to play. Glad to have CD6405 though as he sounds active and anxious to get going!

Yeah, guys CD6405 is in now and off to a roaring 5-0 start!

This proves two things, 1) It isn't too hard to get some games in if you really, really try like CD has. He played five games in about a week. More than some owners have played in 3-4 months. 2) Somebody better stop him or he is going to walk away with this thing!

Good luck :)

Bad new from the AFC guys. I got this message from primetime tho other day:

"Yeah, I think the AFC is toast. There's just not enough interest anymore. I'm really sorry it happened this way, but I really wish you guys good luck."

So it looks like we're playing for the whole enchilada here in the NFC. I've got two more games to play and I'll be done (at 2-7 right now I don't think I'll make it to the playoffs :)). Keep playing and get your games in.

I think we're closer to having a champion than we realize.
