He's 6-8 in the other league (Same as me), so I would say that sounds great! More members can never hurt.

I don't think he's a good fit here. For one, he seemed to be holding his own just fine in the other league in season one. And for another, he originally signed up here...and when he got a spot in the other league, he blew us off. If he's not happy with getting his ass kicked now, he should have thought of that back in August.

If other league members feel that having ANY human owner is better than having the CPU, then I'll consider it. But to be honest, I've grown tired of the "me first" attitude a lot of people who play Madden on CAG seem to have.

Was he ever actually in the league? Like had a team? I mean if he just signed up I don't see what the big deal is, if he got a team then didn't like it or something that is entirely different.

My reason is both my lolbs contracts are expiring and this guy will be beast in a year or two and the chiefs other lolb is already in the 90's so Houston will get traded sooner or later Hes worth a first.

This was the first thing that popped into my head when I read his name.

Saints 35, Failclowns 21.

1. Ok... I Got the ball to start the game. I THREW 3 PICKS ON MY FIRST DRIVES that turned into 3 TDs for the Falcons. I then had a 4th and 1 at the 50 yd line..

Your telling me Sean Payton isnt going to go for it on 4th and 1 at the 50 AGAINST his biggest rival IN THE SUPERDOME!!
I knew you would blitz so i threw a playaction to my FB who took it to the house. I needed a big play to boost my momentum and that was it.

I dont think you should be pissed about that. I shut you out for the rest of the game.
It is obvious who is the better player because if you take away the 3 picks that i threw in the 1st quarter (that were bonehead throws) I would have beat you 35-0...

2. I had the ball on Falcons about 15 with about 1:40 left and he had no timeouts. Yes, I could have kneed it. Honestly, i hate when ppl knee the ball against me. And I hate kneeing the ball. And it is easy as hell to run against you because you dont play defense, Sproles went in without being touched. It should take into account that it was against the Saints biggest rival, in the Superdome


and this is why he doesnt belong hes a douche


It's kind of funny that DVO wants to bring him in when he had a problem with him then. Throughout that whole back and forth, he comes off as a huge asshole.

Signed up, got a spot in the other league and left before team selection. Don't really see the big deal personally.

Yeah, I thought of that too. I'm trying not to judge somebody based on one thing because God knows we've all had issues. But I also really don't want one more person that I have to explain "play right" to.

I was thinking about it last night, and I'm almost at the point with the "run the clock out" argument that I'd like to tell people to just rage quit if they're being disrespected. The problem there is that would require trusting people's judgment of what "disrespected" actually is. But I'd really love some concrete consequence for people acting like asshats to put an end to it once and for all. Having their opponent quit out and allowing them to play the CPU would be great. If that doesn't get people to play right, nothing would.

as am I. I think opening rage quitting is just going to lead to more problems since people will feel like they can quit out if they're not having a good game (I know you're saying it should only be allowed if you feel the opponent isnt running the clock out right, but I dont think other people will always abide by that)

im against it for sure it will become a he did this and no i didnt type situation with no proof at all. then u have to pick a side to believe then that will cause more problems and may lead to people rage quitting the league instead. plus opinions differ on wuts reasonable. like u said last night we have 2 very different types of extremes on both sides of this topic. plus im the type that hates when people start running the clock out in the 3rd quarter using the entire play clock for each play in the third with 5 minute quarters drives me insane. i know its a strategy but its just as annoying to as someone running up the score if the games going to go like that id rather the person just play the computer i dont play madden to sit around and wait either. i find it just as cheap. i know the response will be then stop them and that stops the clock. but either way its still an easy 2 minutes off clock even if u do stop them.

i just find it be cheap fourth quarter i understand but running out the clock the start of the 3rd quarter makes for a very unenjoyable game in my mind. 14 point lead becomes a huge lead if people play like that.

I said I'm "almost at the point". I just feel like we continuously see it because there's no real punishment. It becomes "Yeah...you shouldn't have done that.", "Oh, sorry. I won't do it again." And then the next person does something similar...and on and on we go. It gets old.

This is entirely wrong on so many levels. I don't know why in the hell we're discussing this again, but last I checked, you could force somebody to go 3 and out...and then it really doesn't matter if they want to chew the clock, now does it? You had 18 yards of total offense in your game against me. Do you think chewing the clock would have helped you? The only time it becomes an issue is with people who don't want to learn how to play defense and like having 55-47 scores.

Conversely, running up the score is not a "strategy". The person already has the game in hand and doesn't need to do anything else to secure a win. This is nowhere close to being in the same universe as ball control.

I really don't know why we're discussing this. This isn't a negotiation and I'm really tired of talking about it. If you can't tell, I'm in favor of much harsher consequences for anyone who disregards league policy. Enough is enough.

I think most of the things that come up are pretty trivial. Most of the time I just like to point at what they did so that the league knows I felt like something was a bit suspect. Usually I am fine with the game counting otherwise.

I just feel like we continuously see it because there's no real punishment.


If you feel this stuff keeps happening start throwing out strikes more often, this is where your judgement is supposed to come into play as commissioner. Not trying to take a shot at you or anything. I think everything is getting blown out of proportion at this point.

I would think you would want users over CPUs.. And I'm sure most in the league would agree. I was never ever officially signed up for this league, so I did not blow you guys off. Me and dvo were texting and he brought up that I should join the gentlemens league.. If you guys don't think so, then oh well. But I will take a team if that's okay with the commish

I don't disagree. But what is a "strike" really? And how many do you get? And what happens after you get that number? Even in the other league...how often is punishment doled out due to "strikes"? I realize, again, that's all stuff that really has to be decided by me. Weird to think that I've been too nice, lol. Guess it's time to start cracking down.

To the commish. Can I get on the waiting list? Looking for a successful league and this seems to be one from the sounds of it. Thanks


Open teams are listed in the OP...but yeah...rosters are not what you'd expect (other than the Chargers).

The Colts have Eli Manning instead of Andrew Luck, and traded Vontae Davis and Coby Fleener for Vernon Davis...who was since involved in a trade with Reggie Wayne for Michael Turner and Asante Samuel.

And as mentioned, the Panthers are a mess. Cam Newton and DeAngelo Williams were traded for Alex Smith, Frank Gore, among others. They only have 47 players...and are $3M over the salary cap limit. Without cutting big contracts and signing several cheap players, that team is basically broken.
