Thank you scrubobk and allen. I'll give pitfall and the other two a little bit more time and will update everyone shortly.

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

All right, here's the situation, guys. The website is giving me a bitch of a time. Basically, the only thing it's letting me do on this connection (at least I'm assuming it will even allow this) is to advance the week. I haven't been able to offer my guys contracts or anything. Every time I try, I can't get the contract info to load for the players that are free agents. I also can't franchise tag or anything.

So, we can either wait until I get home on Friday to proceed further. OR, I can advance you guys and let somebody take over for me the rest of the way...because without free agency my team is pretty much dead. Honestly, I'm fine either way. It's not like my run to finish last season was incredibly strong anyway. So, whatever the majority wants, that's what we can do. Sorry about this. I really was hoping it wouldn't be this huge of a pain in the ass. If EA had ever released that mobile app that they bragged about back when they were trying to sell the game, it probably would have gone a lot smoother.


The voting went as followed:

Wait: 17
Advance now: 7
Impartial: 5
Did not vote: 3

At this point everyone should just prep for a later advance. We had some people mention it but we also need to address how many seasons we are going to try to get in, and look into how we go take care of ridiculous backend contracts accordingly. Hopefully this gives us time to do that.

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

Can I get the password in a private message n8
I know I'm new and don't really have a say either way but with 32 teams you are NEVER going to be able to make everyone happy


I'm pretty sure there's no option for that in this year's game (yet another feature tat EA removed). I've never seen anywhere to view join requests, and don't even remember the game asking for a password.

I completely agree with your sentiment about making everyone happy though. For anyone who cares, my idea for the advancement shcedule was to advance us on Friday...then make sure everyone has had a chance to make their FA offers (I know some mentioned being gone this weekend...and it really wouldn't be fair to hold things up for me just to turn around and skip over them).

So...even if our next advance was late Sunday night, that would at least put us all back on track. Then, hopefully we'd be ok for a 2 day advancement from that point on...and be ready to draft by the weekend of the 29th. That would alow the Rams owner to get in on free agency, alow us to figure out how we want to limit contract offers (if at all), and have time to review pending trades. Personally, I think it's foolish to rush into a final season because of some hypothetical situation that people will lose interest. We're all playing football in March for a reason.

I wonder if that's something they added. Because we were set up before you could do a fantasy draft too. I just know I've never seen anything that indicated join requests. And it's weird because NHL 13 was the opposite. You could only send invites when the league was created...and after that it was join request only.

I'm in a couple leagues on madden 13....you either set it to public where anyone coukd join if they found it or private where there is a password and if you didn't put a password in then it would prob be invite only. ..ill check it out by searching for the lea gue...I just got home

I don't except this sham vote. I just want to express my disappointment in everyone letting n8 hold all this over their heads. Also, I don't think the message asking for the vote explained the situation well enough.

Troy did do the vote. I was just wondering how he would have put it. I thought it was explained pretty decently. I'm a sucker for information.

True. Im just more in favor of having the dude who runs the league and puts waaaaaaaay more time into it dealing with stuff then we do a little leeway when things get screwed up. This is also coming from someone who gets screwed over every year for the draft lol

Right but like you said you get screwed every year. Wouldn't it be nice to ask for them to hold it for you and they say ok?

That's essentially what Is happening. I think it's a weird argument over the sake of a FA week advancement as I'm sure a few others can agree. Which is why I voted to wait because I want all of us to be on the same page. One way or another we have to either not bid on N8's players or wait to advance when the league top kicks wouldn't do the same if say I asked them to wait. While I don't think they would say "tough shit" I do think they would say something along the lines of people get busy and we can't hold the league of 32 up for 1,2 or I'm willing to bet up to like 5 or 6.

That's the only point I'm trying to make and I think n8 even said himself earlier that he is the commish and has to make tough decisions but it seems decisions where his best Interest are at hand it's easy to make which to me and a few others doesn't seem fair. I don't want an apology I want him to finish admitting what he almost started to when he posted earlier and say that he does get special treatment. Am I sayin I wouldn't be guilty...absolutely not but if it came to this I'd definitely admit it and say get over it. We all know him and I have had our differences so I'm not callin him put here in simply saying "you are the commish and as such you work a lot to keep the league going but as a human being in your situation it is IMPOSSIBLE to not "treat" yourself once and again."

He did say he was going on vacation but we were all under the impression that we would advance normally and. It until a few of us asked asked a day or two when we would did this become an issue. So I think miscommunication is a problem here I think. Do I blame him for that not really because if I was on vaca I wouldn't care but I also know if I asked him and our roles were switch to where I was out for a week and he was home running the league would it matter that the website was messing up and I couldn't do anything?

i do agree with doc is saying anyone else would just be shit out of luck. and being the commish gives him some benefits and somethings he has to do would really suck big time. but it's going to be difficult when draft time comes and some people can make it and some can't and then when they want it on a different day more than likely it won't happen becuz of the fact that well for majority that day and time will work for the people that cant make well they will be shit out of luck. the fact is the a single day or time isnt going work for everyone. someones always going to have to bite the bullet on a advancement or draft date or something

Yes kids, that's called a call back from like 4 months ago. Sorry Troy, couldnt help it :D



Doc, you debate with points and counterpoints and valid reasoning. I'm not sure how I fell about that. I'm not entirely use to it.

I agree with you. If I was on vaca, I wouldnt expect anything held up for me. But I don't mind helping the guy out who runs it. Without him doing it, we wouldnt have a league to play in or debate in.

First, how the hell do y'all take quote pieces from whole quotes? I've been wondering!

Second I am actually educated. I can actually pose a valid argument all around if I need to.

Your last 2 sentences (really could use the partial quote thing now) strikes me curious. The guy you want to help has said he wanted to quit cause he was "getting maddened" and actually did like I said before but then when he cooled off and realized he may still make the playoffs he came back. He may come back and rebut that last sentence but its hard to see any other way as a player in his division. Then when the debate comes up the last day or so he again threatens to quit again and asks blade to step which from what I read an he has said he totally said he would? Guy doesn't get his way and threatens to quit in both occurrences. That's the dark side of the commish. Everyone has to have a selfish side or the world wouldnt turn but as I have CALMY STATED BEFORE IN THE THREAD AFTER A RANT FROM HIM LOSING A GAME IN WHICH HE GOT MADDENED he has to hold himself to a higher standard.

Like I said I know he does a lot for the league I'm not bashing I'm just trying to accurately recall facts.

You mean like this? Just delete the part you don't want to quote.

I agree with what you are saying about other people not getting the same treatment in a situation like this. If it was anyone else, we wouldn't be having a discussion on it, let alone a vote. Also the comment about how he would quit if we advanced seems completely unfair. What if somebody else threatened to quit if they were going to miss the draft or something similar? That just seems unfair to me to guilt people like that. I didn't like when he said he was quitting for the last 5 or 6 games last season, but I kept my mouth shut because it seemed like everyone who posted was okay with that decision. As Doc said, things weren't going his way in game and I believe he was on a 3 game losing streak and decided that he had enough for the season, but would come back next year and try again. I don't think that would be okay for any of the rest of us to decide. It seems like the argument for why he should get special privileges is because he is the commish who works really hard and puts a ton of time into the league. I honestly can't come up with what is so hard about that job. It seems like whenever a problem arises, it is discussed within the thread and a decision is made based on that. There is a commitee for trade approval. It's not like he is sitting there alone deciding what is right and what is wrong. I don't see what the big deal is. Blade seemed completely fine with taking over after N8 expressed his desire to quit multiple times.

I believe the only way you won't have a cap penalty is if the player doesn't have bonus money. Player's contracts should already be shown as 2014, so there shouldn't be a difference between cutting a player now or later.

I agree, though I am not saying that N8's time isn't appreciated. I do appreciate what he does, and maybe he does try his best. However, I do not appreciate when he threatens to quit or leave, I do not appreciate it when he complains about the work he puts in but refuses to accept any help.

Unfortunately if they have a bonus which is guaranteed money then no matter what that will affect your cap for the following year! Who ya looking to get rid of? I'm up for a trade prop to hp ya out?
