Yah I got that too although it wasn't as bad with my first game. I believe they are going to try and release a patch to fix some of these issues in the next couple of weeks.


There's a post over in the NFC thread about the fixes they are working on. It is pretty lengthy so I won't copy it here, but go check it out if you're interested.

I haven't had the problems that the earlier poster described. The only delay I'm seeing is during the kick mechanism (kickoffs, field goals, punts). The way he describes it, it does sound unplayable. I hope those issues are resolved.

I was getting those button lag issues when I had my bluetooth headset connected...turned off the headset and the lag seemed to go away. Might have been a coincidence...I have a different headset I want to try and see if the same thing happens.

I didn't have my headset turned on at the time so I don't think that was my issue. It seemed to dissipate later on in the game which leads me to believe that it definitely has something to do with the servers on the EA side.

I'm thinking of putting fred taylor on the trading block. I would prefer a WR, tight end or perhaps a MLB, so I can use a 3-4 defense. Hit me up either on PSN or here at CAG if interested. Perhaps there is a way we can do more than a one player trade...

wow i just had the worst lost to chokes yesterday.
chargers vs texans and i lost 21-23 i was stopping him most of the day.
on a first down conversion antonio gates miraculously fumbles and hes on the 10 in his own redzone.

to take the lead 21-13 i pass it to buster davis and hes on the five and i get the first down. and buster davis fumbles. still a 14-13 game he goes down the field scores a fg.

wow i was pretty mad after the game lol.

all fun though.

I'll talk to Dr. SP. In the meantime, someone else can post.

If it's OK though, we'll give them to pinoy.

2-0 baby, Who Dey!!!

But I do need a high draft pick so maybe I should start losing.

Question, how does the end of season draft work for leagues?

We Dey! :D I should be on this evening.

There's no end of season draft. This is just like single season mode.

I don't think it does. Madden 09 leagues would be more accurately described as a tournament. You can have a "fantasy" draft at the beginning, but once the season is over, the playoffs begin and once those end I think the league is over.

It isn't as realistic as we would want or as, I believe, EA lead us to believe.

Is there any way through Madden to see if anyone from the league is on or do I need to add everyone in the league as friends?

Go to league standings and there is a column that tells you who is online.

No they don't need to be your friend, but I think it helps.

Either way, when you're in madden, go to Online -> Online Leagues -> My Leagues

Once you're into your league check League Standings (or something like that). It will show everyone in your league with their win/loss record, the team they are using etc. If you scroll all the way over to the right, you'll see a circle. If that circle has a check that means they are online.

Another, (and better IMHO) method: Click R3 in the standings page. This will bring up your message center. Use L2 to scroll to your address book. Then us R2 to scroll to your league's members. This is better b/c it will tell you not only if they are online, but if they are playing Madden and what in Madden they are doing (Franchise, online game, front end, etc). If you see someone who isn't in an online game already, hit 'em up with a league game invite!

I've also found that it is best if you let someone know that you are inviting them through the PSN messaging. If just seems to do a better job of getting their attention than just inviting through Madden.

Hope that helps. Have fun!

I'll be on tonight 11 or 12 EST.

Also IS ANYONE interested in trading for Fred Taylor? I am looking for a good WR! What about you samurai-hon? You could use a RB, you could give up maybe TJ, or C. Johnson.... We could wheel and deal!

Nah. Maybe Andre Caldwell who usually ends up having more receiving yards than the other two out of the slow (97 speed?). But TJ and Chad aren't on the market. I do pretty well with Chris Perry who I think will have a big year this season.

Been a bit busy over the past week or so, and have only popped online a couple of times when no one else in the league was on.

I should be on this evening if anyone is up for a game, probably somewhere in the 7-10pm Eastern range. :D

That was the worst... Played my first league game against chokes and was winning 28-7 when he fumbled. He challenged the play and after the review, the game just disconnected. I forgot how much I hate EA's online system. Didn't somebody say there was a patch coming out?

In the NFC thread I posted a newsletter from a Madden strategy site that I received detailing a new patch that was in the works, but I don't know when we'll be seeing that. I can confirm as well that challenges are giving disconnects pretty consistently in online and league games. Player Injuries have also triggered them for me. It sucks but hopefully they'll patch it soon.

Guys, I know this league might take a few months, but try to get in games as often as possible. Try to coordinate using this thread.

For example, I should be on late Friday night, around 11-12 central.

I seem to keep missing people. I'm usually on, but not very late, somewhere between 8-10pm EST is usually my sweet spot during the week. Fridays aren't usually good for me, Saturdays I can usually get in a morning game, and Sunday nights I'm usually free as well.
