Hey guys, I just thought I would let everyone know that I am going to go ahead and play the CPU this morning. It doesn't appear that we are going to get an owner today, and I will be gone most of this evening, so a late game won't be possible.

I would much prefer to play a real person, (as the CPU cheats sometimes), but I will just get my game over with.

Edit: It's done. Broncos 31-10. Now I will be gone most of the day. So I will see all of you when we advance!

I wasnt jumping on you for anything.... calm down... I was simply dissapointed with what Kaster saying not being 100% true. He scheduled a do over, which he cancelled, and told me to wait until the following day to play. I messaged him now asking what time today works and that I am pretty much open.

Yes I was down 21 pts, but driving, and there was still plenty of game to be played. Granted I still probly would have lost.

Yeah, ya know, it's ridiculous the shit people jump on me for in here. I don't think it's possible to be any more reasonable than what I posted above. All I have to go on is what people tell me.

1. Kaster posted that after his connection dropped, he sent a PM to schedule a do-over, but hadn't heard anything (allegedly). He asked about playing the CPU right then.

2. I told him to wait because it wasn't a pressing issue yet since we still had an entire day to get it worked out.

3. I acknowledged that in another 24 hours, if he still hadn't heard anything (allegedly), it would then be appropriate for him to play the CPU...not only because he was winning by a sizeable margin, reasonably late in the game, but because by that point, it would have been 2 days since any contact had been made (according to him).

4. Even after recognizing him playing the CPU as a possibility, I expressed my hope that it wouldn't come to that, and that a new time to play could be scheduled.

Seriously! How the hell can anybody have a problem with that? Exactly what is there to be pissed off about? If you're responding to say that his claim that you didn't answer his PM isn't true, then just say that. Don't jump on me like it's my fault. When somebody comes in here and says something, I naturally just assume they're not making shit up. If they are, don't bitch at me. Call them out on it.

I'm still waiting to hear back from the colts. No response in live or in pm's on this board. Kinda pisses me off because I hate leaving games up to madden to chance a win or loss, especially when one party obviously isn't trying to get the game in.

You don't have to leave it to chance, man. If he's not responding to you by today, I'll put him on auto pilot and you can play the CPU. The game definitely doesn't have to be simmed.

Browns defeated Raiders 21-14. Just barely escaped with the win. Darren Mcfadden had a huge run against me for a TD. 86 yards or something like that.

Was a very good game tho and now we have a nice little lead in the division. Tough matchup against the Chiefs next week tho.

cowboys/eagles was not able to be played last night due to cowboys being stuck at work. will try and get it in tonight if not simming is fine. Both of us have pretty much opposite work schedule so both games have been hard to schedule and get done

Since the bucs are open and theyre my week 14 opponent, can i just play the CPU? I'd like to get the week done as soon as possible since i've had some trouble getting games scheduled and want to make sure i'd be able to get the last weeks scheduled for sure.

Again, unless there's a valid reason to play the game right away, no, you should wait. I completely understand your scheduling concerns, but if you end up having to play the CPU anyway, there won't be anything to schedule. If there's not an owner by the day of the deadline...or the latest time you can play the game (or if a new owner takes over the team with not enough time to schedule the game), then you'll be allowed to play the CPU.

My apologies to scrub and the Eagles. We just couldn't get a time to play.


But me and dvo played our game. Very defensive oriented. We had successful running games but a big TO by Foster in the 4th led to a Written TD on the next drive. Then as he was driving for a potential win,, Mana Silva had the game sealing pick 6.



Question. I had a 4th and 1, 4th quarter, about less then two minutes left. He had just used his last timeout. I went for the 51 yd FG. If I had made the FG I would have gone up by 5 and he would have had to go for a TD on his drive but if I punted he would have won with a FG of his own. I believe I made the right decision. I just don't want to get any flack for it if anyone thought it wasn't very "gentlemen" like.

To me, that's not a question of "gentlemanly" at all. It's a close game, points help you win. To me, it's more a question of how confident you are in your kicker's ability to hit a 51 yard field goal, and if you want to risk the field position you're giving up if you don't make it. You were at his 34 yard line right? I don't think any coach would punt from there. Personally, I think the decision is kicking the field goal or just going for it on 4th.

As I've mentioned many times, in my opinion, that area of the field is no man's land. If you punt, you might only gain 14 yards. If you miss the field goal, he's got the ball at his 41. If you go for it and don't pick up the 1st down, he's got the ball at his 34. Kinda hard to say what the "right" call is there. With a strong legged kicker, I think most coaches would kick the field goal. But I don't think going for it is even that hard of a sell.

One might reason that when you're at the point that you feel comfortable enough picking yourself to go to the Super Bowl, maybe you've outgrown this league. Sure doesn't speak very highly of your NFC competition.

also n8 the offical league is going thru the offseason as we speak its pretty rough shit i dont think it would be a bad idea once we get to the playoffs if u and i and a few other set up a fake league and run a test thru the off season seeing how it all works and everything like that esp doing a mock draft with seeing how the draft trades work if they even do and all that stuff it would really help this league nto suffer as bad as the other one did
