This whole conversation and ALL the stuff that has been said is because of what he originally posted on the subject. My .02 aside, I feel this could have and possibly should have been a subject in which should have been handled via PM. Instead we have been reading about this crap all day. Even N8 quasi apologized and tried to lay it to rest but here we are still going through this!


In my opinion, this is why we need more than one commissioner. If there were multiple guys who could discuss issues at any time, N8 wouldn't have to make all the decisions by himself and would be able to handle certain situations better. This problem is a perfect example. If N8 had been able to go to a select group of owners and say that he thought chetty and hemingway were too good to be in the league, then that would have been discussed by the group and then possibly discussed with those players via PM. Instead, the problem was brought up in public after a playoff loss to one of the teams in question. It doesn't have to be that way.

I definitely put up a lot of yards with Johnson, but I had at least 3 CPU games this season too. My team is also rated 76 and my defense is full of holes. Maybe you could argue that Chetty's team is on par with mine...but I lost 3 games this season. As for Hemingway, he's as good as he is and still took one of the best teams in the game (which is part of the reason I said Blade could be next in line too). I don't think comparing either of them to me is a valid comparison.

But the point stands, anybody who proves to be basically unbeatable has no place here. It's not about a range of skill, because I 100% agree with you...we're never going to get everyone totally equal. But I am nowhere close to unbeatable. There are enough people in this league who have exchanged beatings over the past two years (myself, doc, Kaster, DVO, pitfallharry, Dark Rider, Blade, Superstar, etc.) When these people play, the games are competitive enough that one team doesn't have to back off in the 3rd quarter so the score doesn't get out of hand.

None of us are at a level where we don't lose games reasonably often (though, if I'm being honest, I think Blade would be the next closest to "graduating"). Then we've gotten a lot of new guys this year who seem like they're either right there with us, or very close (I was going to name names here, but I started to realize it's almost everyone else). It's just crazy to look at two guys who are a combined 29-1 against the rest of the league and not think they're head and shoulders above everyone else.


I understand your issues with them and it was pretty clear they are on a different level just by looking at the decisions that they were making and their results on the field.

You did have a lot of games on your schedule that didn't look very competitive at all and maybe that was just a fluke based on CPU games and a potentially(I haven't looked) weaker schedule. Like I said, I have barely played any of you guys, so I could be wrong. I played a couple of the guys you mentioned and had competitive games, so hopefully that tells me something. I'm just looking forward to making roster moves of my own and playing in games that matter, starting with this offseason and hopefully going into next seasons games. Really bored here. My offer to play practice games outside the league still stands. Nobody has taken me up on that yet.

Off topic - but I do actually respect and like you, we just have different opinions on things, haha.

I haven't played with you this year I don't think, but I think we're in the same boat. It sounds like you run because you have to. I pass because I have to, haha. I WISH I could run the ball. Once I can run like I can pass, then I'd probably think it would be time to move on. I think I am a decent passer, but I am a horrible runner.


Thanks. I appreciate that amongst all the butthole throttling I'm getting, lol (not that I'm not enjoying that too, haha). But yeah...basically. I know Chetty countered my claim about attributes by showing how low rated his guys were. And if that's true, I really just don't get it. I know when a blitz is coming. I can read it. But when my receivers get jammed, they just stand there getting mugged. If your guys don't have high release, how do you get around that?

Same thing on defense. I'm smart enough to know what style of play my opponent likes to use and when he's probably going to pass the ball (with Hemingway, I even know who he's throwing it to most of the time). But my corners have man coverage of like 86 and mid 70s press coverage. I can't user every player on the field, so if my AI players aren't capable, what can I do? I end up running a quarter coverage a lot of the time so I can double team as many receivers as possible...but then I'm really scraping the bottom of my depth chart.

And how are they getting these results out of mediocre QBs? I've got Jake Locker starting, and I've boosted his short throw and medium throw accuracy into the mid 80s. So, I can't see him really being much worse than Tannehill or Mallett. But I have him missing open receivers all the time. And I'm not trying to lead my guys or do anything fancy with it. I'm just throwing to who's open (when someone actually can get open). I just can't get the results these guys get from players who don't have the attributes to justify their performance. I'd love to hear somebody explain that to me.

Quick two questions for me. What are all the teams opening up this offseason? Also, have their been any major trades done to the Atlanta roster? (No J. Jones, Ryan, White, etc. )

I glanced at them. It doesn't appear that any major changes have been made. The whole offense is still the same.

Glad to hear you're interested! Nothing is available right now, but I am sure Nate would be happy to put you on the waiting list. Then we will let you know when a team opens up!

Not till the offseason. I know it did that to my guys while they were unowned, unless the previous owner ended negotiations.

Go to the last tab, and then under personnel, go to salary. You can sort by salary for 2013, giving you an idea on whose contract is up.

Any of you guys want a free pizza from Papa John's? I won a free code, but it expires the 16th and they're still in the middle of construction on the new one near me. The next closest location is over 30 minutes away. I don't want it to go to waste, so the first post that wants it gets it.

Yeah, I think that's reasonable. Feel free to start PM'ing me trade proposals and I'll forward them on to the committee.
Do you have what it takes to compete?
