Try working there. I've survived for the first three hours. If you guys don't hear from me at all this weekend, assume I died.

I'm not sure if the Browns being someone's secondary teams means they're not available, but if they're still available I'm interested.

Yeah, latecomers after the first 16 primary teams were picked get their choice of any secondary team.

Yeah, secondary teams are all available for the taking. I'll put you down as the Browns and TheSportsGamer23 can choose a new secondary team. You're also free to choose a secondary team too if you want. These are basically just "assigned subs" rather than trying to find a sub for each CPU team. You only play as them when they face a human opponent though. CPU vs CPU games will be simmed.

Is there a deadline for the first game? I joined but won't be on tonight probably, so I want to be aware of when I should make myself available.

Well, I'm not even 100% sure if everyone has gotten the game yet. There are still a couple from the "waiting list" that haven't updated us on if they got it yet. As of right now, 9 people have joined the league, so we're still missing a few. We'll take week 1 slow to give everybody time to get set up and get acclimated, but I'd LIKE to have it wrapped up by next Friday (12/2) if possible. Everybody should definitely feel free to contact their opponent and schedule a time to play though.

Having said all that, I cleaned up the OP a bit and hopefully made the members list a little easier to read. There are still 5 secondary teams available for those who haven't chosen one. They are as follows:

Colts, Jaguars, Redskins, Cardinals, Seahawks

Other than that, I think we're good. I figured the holidays would slow us down a bit, but hopefully we can get things moving again this weekend and start seeing some games played! Good luck to everyone! :)

If there are no objections, I'll take the Bills as my secondary team. I was born near Buffalo and endured the four straight Super Bowls misery of the early 90s. Now I just laugh when they collapse (as they're once again doing this season). Playing with them should be a riot.

Two questions:

1) Do we HAVE to take on a second team?
2) My first opponent is against the Dolphins and they don't have an owner. if they eventually don't get taken as a primary or secondary team, is subbing am option?

1) You don't HAVE to, but it would make it easier on everybody else. If enough people decline to take secondary teams, we'd just have to find subs for that team the regular way.

2) The Dolphins do have an owner (albeit a secondary one). The recently revised member list will hopefully make that easier to spot. Blade3D has them.

Haha, I hear ya! But nah, the format sucked anyway. I realized that when I was trying to figure out which teams were left. Makes more sense listing them by division anyway. :)

He has to leave the league and then rejoin as the Dolphins. The password is cagls. Pretty much the same as subbing.

We'll give it a few more days, and if need be, we'll find someone to sub. As for playing with secondary teams, all you have to do is choose to leave the league (as in quitting...don't worry, it's ok). Then, just rejoin as your secondary team by searching for the league "CAGLS JV League" and using the password "cagls". After the game, rejoin as your main team.

Ya we got it going, though we disconnected twice. First game I was making a comeback in the final minute to tie it, second game I was leading by 21, and third game that we finally finished I got my ass kicked by 14 lol.

Ah, that sucks. Everybody should try to make sure their NAT type is set to open. Madden does have connection issues at times though. Losing by 14 isn't that bad...especially for somebody who just got the game. Good job kicking this league off though guys! It's nice to see people eager to get started.

Blade wanted to keep playing last night after his game with Miami so he called and said be would sub for the Colts. I barely beat him with the Texans. When he subbed in he found out that the Colts still had ALL players which I guess we all forgot about because he had Manning, Addai and Wayne.

The score was 21 to 16 and if Blade would have been more familiar with that Teams offense then he probably would have beat me. Just wanted to let everyone know that the Colts might not be a bad pick up.

Is there a way to find out who may be available to play in general. Nobody's picked up the redskins and I'd like to get started on the season. I'd gladly return the favor.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. So, he just felt like playing more, so he subbed for the Colts too? We CAN'T do it like that guys. Aside from the fact that I said to give it a few days to give someone time to pick the Colts, NOBODY should be subbing without checking with the league first...ESPECIALLY to play someone who I know is a friend his. Do you not see at all how that could be misconstrued?

Since this is a first game, I'll let it slide, but in the future, subbing needs to be requested in the thread. Just because you can jump around from team to team very easily doesn't mean you should. This makes me believe more than ever that we need to get these last 5 teams distributed so this type of thing doesn't come up again.
