Just an FYI for anyone looking to trade for skins players. I'm always open to trade talks but keep In mind that Jim Mara made up rules in the offseason to punish the skins cap space this year and next which looks to be in the game. Looks like 5mil penalty this year and 8mil next year.

n8, I like the way you've got the league roster set up in the OP.. You mind if I borrow that format and use it in the other league?

Not at all. Feel free. It's not like I have it trademarked, haha. I'm sure we both borrow ideas from each other. I'm following right along with your guys' reasoning for waiting on the 53 man roster update to get started, and I tend to agree as well.

Just to make an official statement on it, I completely agree with the thoughts that were expressed in the other league on waiting on the 53 man roster update, which will be released on Friday, before we get started. In addition to the extraneous players, one example of an inaccuracy with the current roster was Vontae Davis still being on the Dolphins.

Plus, the patch just came out today (still don't think anyone knows exactly what it fixed though). So, at least that'll give people a couple days to see what's different and figure out if it affects their gameplay style at all. We're almost there, guys. I appreciate everyone's patience. I know it probably feels like forever, but this really seems to be the nature of sports games these days. For the first month, we're basically just beta testing.

As for preseason, I would like to get through it reasonably quickly. Since we'll be starting with 53 players roster cuts should be unnecessary (unless the game auto-generates players just for preseason). And honestly, I don't think the games are as vitally important as practicing with your team, progressing players, etc. So, I'm hoping we can take no more than 2-3 days for each week of preseason. We'll try to play it by ear a bit, but we won't be waiting around on people either.

tl:dr - League will be set up and invites will be sent out on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14TH!!! :bouncy:
Do you have what it takes to compete?

If injuries are turned off, simulating is fine to me. But if injuries are on, i'd like to play them so i could avoid having my starters play the entire preseason game(i believe there is a glitch where if the game is simulated it plays your starters the entire time).

Only if you play the game. If you check the stats on simulated games, it only shows your starters as being played. maybe they fixed it in the update, i'll check now.

Yeah, that's why if we plan on simming through the preseason, i believe that injuries should be turned off. And i just tested it with a new online franchise and it's still the same for me, Rodgers was 23/30 and the backup qb's didn't throw any passes.

That's what we plan to do in the other league. I'm actually going to turn them off altogether for the preseason if it's allowed. It might be a bit unrealistic, but I don't think anybody wants to get derailed by injuries in a preseason game.

If most people want injuries turned off and the option of allowing the CPU to play their preseason game for them, I guess we can do that...ONLY if the game really doesn't sub as they should for a preseason game. To me, that would have to be the sticking point since just the chance of a preseason injury is the same as the chance of a regular season injury. So, to say one is more "unfair" than the other is kind of hypocritical. But if it's a matter of the game functioning properly, then yeah, we have to adjust.

Apparently EA is running things on "Valve time" these days.

If the league is up Friday, I may not be able to accept the invite immediately due to work. Should have things ready by Saturday evening though.

Played a few games with the Browns last night. Man they're terrible. Lol.

Brandon Weeden is actually a hell of a QB tho, he can make every throw and is pretty accurate. I can't get my run game started with Trent Richardson at all tho, going to have to figure that out. Josh Cribbs has been the standout player for me. Ben Watson drops every single pass I throw to him, even while wide open.

I also noticed a lot of players use the Ravens online, that might be the reason my run game can't get started also.

I had an overtime thriller against a guy using the Cowboys. He missed three kicks in the game including a 51 yarder as time expired in regulation and a 50 yarder in overtime after I turned the ball over on an interception. Both kicks would've won it for him. I eventually won with a 38 yard kick.

Anyone else feel like we should start doing a check in to find out who still doesn't have the game or who has stopped coming to the forum? I'd hate to see everyone get excited about starting the league this weekend just to wait two more weeks for everyone to start signing up._
