I'll give you the 27th pick and Eric Berry for both of your first rounders. ;)


Done.

Anyone who might be interested in trading down in the draft, shoot me a PM. I'm willing to send both my first rounders (#28 and #32 in order to move up).


If I could get pick 30 I'd do it. 4 picks in a row :D

Hopefully I will get some time tonight to look at all of the prospects, this trip has kept me busier than I thought it would.

#28, #30, #31, #32 is not four in a row. ;)

Uber and I will only be running the one league. I'd imagine there will be a JV league again, and it's possible a 3rd league would spring up but I don't know (there's never been much success there in the past, as you all know).

Obviously our league will have 32 spots, and more than likely more than 32 people who will want to be in it. So we need to figure out a way to decide who gets a spot, which is what we're working on.

It's a near certainty that there will be some people who get an automatic spot, and if so, that list will certainly include past league champions.

I like the lottery idea for the record...that's the only guilt-free way I can get the Panthers!! Or at least reduced guilt..

Edit: Assuming I have one of the 32 spots! :O

We did essentially that in the secondary league last year if you'll recall - gave the better players the lesser teams. They ended up making the playoffs anyway. ;)

I'll reiterate that none of this is set in stone yet. How we're going to handle who gets the spots is much further along in the idea department than how we're going to handle teams.

In the meantime though, all the feedback is appreciated. :D

Kinda what I was thinking. Freeman is for sale folks. Looking for a first rounder and a few other players (one being a QB).

Might as well repost my trade block:

Patriots Trade Block
:

1st round pick (Patriots, #28)
1st round pick (Lions, #32)

I'm definitely interested in packaging both to move up in the 1st round. All my other picks are on the table as well.

QB Evan Smith - 84 OVR, 24, A Pot
WR Roddy White - 94 OVR, 33, A Pot (I'd likely need a receiver back if I deal him)
LT Matt Light - 86 OVR, 37, B Pot
RT Sebastian Vollmer - 83 OVR, 30, A Pot
ROLB Gary Guyton - 77 OVR, 29, C Pot (85 speed, great coverage)
CB Derron Charles - 79 OVR, 24, B Pot

Looking for:
1) Center
2) Elite defensive line players (especially DT)
3) Pass-catching TE
4) Right Tackle (most interested in packaging Richardson or Vollmer to upgrade here)
5) Picks (really only interested in 1st rounders)

Not that you and I would ever work together on something (hi, Lex Luthor...meet Clark Kent, lol), but the JV League will definitely be back for Madden 13. And honestly, at this point, I think the line between JV and V is blurred a decent amount as well. Sure, there are still players who can't hold a candle to the top shelf talent in here...but I think that statement could still be applied just in this league to an extent.

I do believe our rules and policies differ a bit though, and maybe you could say I'm not as forgiving when people step out of line. But what I foresee happening is the "JV League" turning into the "Gentlemen's League". Not that I plan on calling it that (unless of course, we all choose stripper names to represent our teams...then it might be fun...dibs on Destiny!), but the way I'd like it to function next year would be no nonsense, no constant reminders to play right, few warnings given, a non-negotiable expectation to keep up with the thread, responsive to PM's, etc. And if people show any difficulty sticking to that, they're gone.

I'm sure those are all things you guys want for this league as well...but my intention is to be as iron-fisted in enforcing them as possible. Forgive me for saying it, but at times, I think the desire to keep the league full compromised the integrity of the clientele. It's the whole mentality of caring more about winning than caring about playing right. And having so and so's friend's, brother's, uncle who likes Madden, but has no idea what this thread is or even what CAG is can be a hinderance more often than not. I just don't have the patience for it.

Maybe some of what I'm saying is the exact kinds of changes you and Uber have been talking about...and if so, that's awesome. I think more transparent rules and clear cut policies can only help things run smoother. Just wanted to make it known that the JV League will be available for those who don't have a spot here...or even would prefer to play there (provided you can commit to the expectations). Honestly, I think having enough guys to where there was very little overlap between the two leagues would be great. Not that people won't be welcome to double up...it would just be cool if there were that many people committed to playing Madden.

I like that idea having the not so good people in the league having picks at teams first then so on. But i'd like to stay with the rams if i can :)

I think just a straight up lottery for the teams, once we have already established the 32 players, would be fair.

Randomly assign the numbers, and then have a draft for teams. One problem would be people dodging tough divisions, but I can't think of many others.

That's certainly one option on the table. Another is to ask everyone to give us their top 5 teams and then where there are conflicts, we use the lottery from there. Some teams will be in higher demand than others.

There are certain vets in the league (I won't name names) who are very committed to their own teams and might not want to play at all if they don't get them, so we need to consider those people as well.
