I vote that we cut Nate some slack. If he's tired of playing, that's fine. If he wants to put his team on autopilot for the rest of the season, that's fine. I mean we wouldn't have this well-run and organized league with a lot of good people in it without his efforts. The fact that he's still willing to keep it going from a management perspective, while not playing, is a testament to his good virtues. The draft argument is overblown. Who really cares if he drafts in position #15 or #25? I know we're trying to play this league in as "realistic" way as possible, but let's not lose perspective that this is still a video game and we're just playing for fun. This isn't a job, or school, or family. If someone isn't having fun, for whatever reason, it's a good time to take a break. If it happens to be during the season, so what?

I haven't had time to chime in on this yet. (This weekend has been crazy, I haven't played an xbox game since last Thursday I think)

I agree. Nate, if you are feeling burnt out, I think everyone can understand that. If you want to autopilot the rest of the season, I have no problem.

Eventually, everybody gets burnt out or just wants to spend more time with their friends and family. Hopefully you'll stick around, as you do an excellent job of running the league.

I don't think it is a problem if any member wants to take a couple weeks off for peace of mind and to give themselves a little break. I'd rather someone take a few games off and come back for another season than to just be done all together because of frustration.
There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Gentleman's League Record:
Season 1: 7-9 Missed Playoffs
Season 2: 18-1 Superbowl Champs

Yeah, I'm on Nate's side with this as well. I've been crazy busy lately and I'd been considering doing this myself. Doing theatre is major time commitment, haha. I should have more free time soon since the show is about to start, though.

This was basically my logic. If I'm getting closer and closer to rage quitting every game, I need to just call it and step away for a bit. There are definitely some "Madden fanatics" on CAG, and they might not understand it, but that's fine. This game isn't even my only hobby, and like it was brought up in the other league, a Madden league shouldn't turn into a part-time job. I might do my practice here and there just to try out some of the new ideas I've had. But just taking the time to schedule games that I don't care about right now doesn't make sense to me.

All throughout this franchise, I've responded to numerous messages telling people that a part time owner is better than having a 100% CPU owner (qualifier: non-douchebag). steggy, slofton, and ubernes can all attest to this. Anybody who doesn't like that is free to go start their own league. Thank you to those who can understand where I'm coming from though.

Are TE's that abused in our league? I haven't looked at any of the leaderboards for a few weeks but other than the one guy that was leaning on gronk every play I don't remember anyone standing out to me.


To be fair, that guy "leaning on Gronk" has had 3 QBs that can't consistently complete a basic curl to the WR to work with. And he did try to swing trades for Miles Austin and Kurt Warner to try and open up the offense.

Losing Reggie seems to have brought life to this team. I just won my third game in a row with him out.

Oh I'm in no way hating I dont even know his numbers but I just remember someone talking about him leading the league in catches or yards I don't remember which. I don't have any problem with people using what works, even if it's just one guy. You gotta do what ya gotta do, as long as you (not allenscribe, you being used as a general term) aren't cheesing.

I understand. I'm undecided whether to fix QB through the draft or free agency. Guess it depends on who ends up being available.

I played it quite a bit last year and came out maybe $15 ahead. It isn't bad but you run into cheesers. Basically ranked games for money. They claim to monitor for stuff like that, but I think it is only for D/Cs and quitters.

Hmm alright. Wonder if they give you a buck or two to start, might screw around if they do. Definitely not putting real cash in

Last year Virgin gave you $5 to start. Basically you play a tournament win 5, get $25. $5 to enter.

It's been a long day, thanks for the laugh...priceless!

Also I'd like to note that I lost to the CPU and have beaten user teams. So putting the n8's team on autopilot doesn't seem like a big deal.


Yeah it's funny when someone doesn't have much time to game. hahahahaahahahah!!!!

I don't know why it was funny, but for some reason it made my day. Honestly it probably wouldn't have taken much, so thanks again.

just to add my $.02 on Nate's autopilot, if thats whats gonna help him right now then he's got my support. Its certainly easy to get burned out on Madden, especially this year in addition to running the league.

no more random than your 30 sack lineman or MVP rookie RB lol

Oh for sure Avril is random. The RB isn't that random, anyone with 98 speed is gonna have a good year, and his carry is well in the 90s. And I have no clue how he is in the running for MVP. Just interesting looking through the stats.

I really wish I had the packers rookie with 99 speed...

Dang and fitzpatrick with a chance for the all time TD record this year with 34 tds only 16 more to go unless someone already beat the RL record.

Edit: and Fred Jackson has more catches than lesean McCoy. Mind = blown lol
