Crap, guess I missed you pitfall. The last few days have been super busy but I can still play anytime today if you haven't already.

Looks like I got CPU'd...not being able to play BEFORE the deadline has expired means you take a loss (user plays CPU)? I'm not going to check this page 24 / 7 but should always be able to play before the deadline, which is still the case. It's not like we were waiting on my game to advance the week.


The only reason you were put on auto was because pitfall said he hadn't heard back from you (giving the impression that he had sent a PM) and because he said he wouldn't be able to play today. When the person who is making the contact is at the latest point he can play, what else can I do? Not checking the page 24/7? Come on, man. Be fair. We advanced 3 days ago. I understand being busy as much as anybody...but there's still gotta be some kind of communication before the day of the deadline.

Well DVO look over the chargers roster because we share a love for making big trades. Lets get something done.

So he doesn't hear back from me Friday or Saturday but first thing Sunday I respond and I've already been put on autopilot (not to mention this is all BEFORE the deadline) seems a little bit ridiculous. I responded to Pitfall's PM damn near 36 hours after he sent it so my 24/7 comment wasn't too far out of line. I was put on autopilot almost 24 hours after not responding? That's insane. It would be COMPLETELY understandable had it been during the week. I'll just drop if I basically have a two day window between each game. I could have played anytime today. No hard feelings, just can't guarantee this wont happen again if the deadline falls during a weekend.

The week vs weekend thing means nothing. People are busy at all different times. Some people have more free time on the weekend. This is why communication is #1. If both sides are communicating, they can figure out a common time. But if there's no communication (and no posts in the thread), what do I have to go on?

To make matters worse, people can only be put on autopilot in the game...meaning, if it needs to be done (as it was multiple times yesterday), I've gotta boot up the game and go through 8 layers of menus to switch somebody. What this means is I'm going to do it whenever it's convenient for me. That doesn't mean the other person has to play the CPU immediately, but the issue here was pitfall saying he wasn't available to play today.

So, think about what situation that puts me in. If I hadn't put you on autopilot, pitfall wouldn't be able to play today...meaning, I either let you play the CPU or sim the game. At the time, the only information I had was that he was trying to contact you and hadn't gotten a response. So, with that information, at that time, allowing him to play the CPU was the most fair thing to do.

You're not going to get a strike or get kicked out of the league for it, so it's not a big deal in that regard. But if weekends are an especially busy time for you, plan ahead, contact your opponent in advance, and schedule a time. If you're too busy to get the game in, then don't worry about it. It happens. We've all got different things going on at different times, and have to plan around our own schedule to find time for games. But it's silly to act like there weren't things that could have been done to avoid the situation. Anyway, this doesn't have to turn into a big thing. Like I said, there's not going to be any "repercussions" for it. Just wanted to give you an explanation.

My apologies, I figured this would count as a strike against me and couldn't guarantee it wouldn't happen again. I will state again that I can't promise I can check the page every single day. Had I sent him a message in advance though he still would have been playing the CPU anyways... Guess I'll just move on from here. Not like I was going to make the playoffs anyways.

Just looking at the Madden site, looks like the esteemed Cowboys owner has taken his ball and gone home, and in the process decided to Fuck the Cowboys completely. It appears that he released Witten, Carr and who knows who else. Just a heads up to anyone looking at the site or game and sees them in free agency, we should probably leave them there for the moment.

We can't advance because ballinhun8 decided to throw a temper tantrum (I'm guessing over his one game suspension...even though he was aware of the rules...and even though he received a warning) and cut at least 8 players from the Cowboys roster and then quit the league. So, now I basically have to get someone from the other league to join as Dallas so they can re-sign all of those players.

Classy move, ballinhun8. That totally proves your point that I'm a piece of garbage and that you're just an innocent victim of "the big evil machine". Good job.

NOBODY SIGN ANY FREE AGENTS UNTIL THIS IS SORTED OUT.

Not surprised that he left, he was a tool from the get go. I wish there was a way to lock down rosters/have a previous saved roster to call upon.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Not a surprising move. He seemed the kind of person who would throw a temper tantrum, after being punished for his temper tantrums. Sadly, I won't miss him.

In other news, the other league made one of these. It's a league site that imports the stats from leagues from the game. It has schedules, all stats, and pretty much everything else you wanted. Should I make one for this league?
