Yeah Huffy, I remember you vaguely. I was just joining OTFL and some PT leagues back when you stopped playing. OTFL is dead btw :(... after merging with puretecmo (never thought that would happen eh...)
I used to play online in some of those leagues back in '01-'02ish, even ran my own league at one point. I kinda miss it.
Anyways, this new one, without an NFL license, I don't see it going anywhere but down in price (a la All-Pro 2k8). I'm guessing it'll be 15-20 new in no time, if we're patient.
Lots of hacks have been discovered since then... it's pretty crazy.
