The better teams have the most pieces to play with. Wasn't that the general logic when BV had the Patriots in Madden 12? In all honesty...I've had some people suggest reinstituting a trade cap for next year...which I definitely will consider. The salary cap in game does an ok job limiting trades...but it still doesn't account for teams just being blessed with more (and being able to stockpile draft picks, trade one big piece for several smaller pieces, etc). A trade cap might be the best solution short of just using fantasy rosters.


Yeah, no real way to prevent that. I forget how many decent pieces they had on defense.

Just got to scrim the new owner of the Giants. He seems like a really nice guy, and should be a good addition to the league.

Yeah, I think at one point he had 5 LBs 84 or above (he drafted an absolute beast in the 2nd round...2 picks before I was going to take him, lol)...and like 4 d-linemen who were the same. Ridiculously deep team.

That's great to hear. I definitely appreciate him waiting it out like he did for the team. Though really, that probably worked out in his favor...since when he was initially wanting to join, the plan was to take the Dolphins, haha. ;)

trade cap wouldnt be a bad idea. i could also see FA becoming more interesting as well if a trade cap was put in.

broncos just signed DRC now i bet kaster is the most excited person right now.

my guess for next year as of now. broncos vs seahawks/49ers superbowl not so sure who it will be in the nfc but the broncos are making some soild moves this off season just like they did the last one. its could be there year if manning doesnt choke now all they need is a safety that understands dont let the guy behind u and there soild

Neither of us were available Tuesday after my game with blade, yesterday was off limits (my anniversary), possibly playing late tonight if not as soon as he is off work tomorrow.

Thansk for the update.

If anyone's interested in filling one of the openings in the other league, we've got a couple decent teams which we're looking to fill. We'll potentially have one or two more in the offseason as well. Just let me know!

Just reading the last few pages at work here and I like a combination of Blade and DVO's ideas. Use DVO's overall setup (that is a mix of everyones concept) with Blade's idea of lumping madden 12 participants with the madden 13 ones. Then the team draft order could be sorted by win percentage, ties in win percentage can be sorted out with a randomizer website. Maybe to keep people that are sketchy participants or left in the middle of a season out make it a two (or three) season minimum for the first tier of players.

After that players with one (or two if the first tier does three seasons) go by win %. Same idea in case of ties. After that new players or players who left in the midst of seasons can pick.

But like nate said, plenty of time to figure that out.

I agree there should be a minimum season requirement for veterans, probably 3 seasons.

3 would be a reasonable number based on the logic that we had 3 seasons in Madden 12 and we'll likely have 3 this year as well. I had hoped to do more...but I just couldn't anticipate the challenges I'd have this year, both in terms of the league and my personal life. But yeah, anyone who stuck around for 3 seasons will have participated in 50% of the league's existence...which seems like a good qualifier for being a "veteran".

Ummm what's up with the Super Bowl?


Quoted in the first post on this page. Said maybe tonight...or tomorrow afternoon at the latest. I'll be on the road all day tomorrow, and won't get a chance to even think about advancing us until probably 9 or 10 PM EST. For anyone wondering, when I sent out the invites to the new members, I made sure NOBODY was on auto pilot. So, as long as no one has changed that themselves in the past 2 days (though I don't know why they would), we should be fine to advance to the franchise tagging/own player negotiating part of the off season without anyone being screwed over this time.

Unfortunately, based on the research I was doing to figure out records from season one, I stumbled upon a post saying franchise tagging wasn't working on the website (and that even re-signing your own guys was complicated). I'll just have to make due the best I can...and hope that I have enough control over my team to really put my heart into Season 3. Just the way it goes though.
Do you have what it takes to compete?

apparently running backs might not be able to lower there head anymore. One less attribute to worry about next year (trucking)? What a pansy league.

Well this statement just isn't completely accurate. You left out some significant details. They said they would make it a personal foul for either a runner or a tackler to engage in head-first contact with the crown of the helmet when running into each other outside the tackle box. Like what DeMarco Murray does with putting the crown of his helmet into a defenders sternum right before he steps out of bounds.

I agree with you that they should just let them play ball. The players know what they signed up for. But they definitely are making it illegal to just lower your head.

That would be the Seahawks, and you should send him a PM. Link is in the OP

Feel free to start PMing me about trades.

Here's my trading block:

C. Rinehart (RG) (84 OVR) 89, and 88 Run and Pass blocking
T. Heap (TE) (78 OVR) 86 CTH. Excellent receiving TE, I just don't need him.
W. MaGahee (HB) (87 OVR in correct scheme) Slow, but will take a whole D line with him.
J. Mays (MLB) (85 OVR) 90 Hit Power, 96 Tackle. Once again, very good, but I don't need him.
D. Amendola (WR) (72 OVR) 89 Catch, 88 Catch in traffic. Low OVR because of a low release.

Looking for a Top 10 draft pick, 2nd Round picks, and a fast Safety. I don't care what the safety's OVR is.
