Falcons/Cowboys might get simmed unless I can play before 5. Sadly, I JUST got home from work and not looking forward to loosing sleep before going back in at 7pm.

Yea man we are cool! That is exactly how I rationalized it! Your kicker was kicking like a bitch on kickoffs! I don't blame you at all! Haha if I hadn't blow coverage with my safety I might have have made you pay for it rather than making me pay!

Good game dude! My 2nd year stud CB IS FINALLY coming into his expectations with those 2 pics!


Yeah, those kickoffs were rough. The first one, the meter had lag really bad. That's why that one was so short. After that, I adjusted my timing, but even then they weren't making the end zone even with full power.

That last 4th down attempt killed me. I think it was 4th and 3 on my own 29. I only had two timeouts and the two minute stoppage had already happened. I felt like it was now or never on that one. If I punted, I was certain you could at least manage one first down to put the game away.

There were some cheap shots going on after some plays. :lol: That one pick my DE had in the end zone, after he took a knee, one of your guys knocked the shit out of him.

Yea I noticed that to! I was like Greg Schiano must have helped on the updates! I couldn't believe I took it from you then you took it from me a few plays later!

Just watch out for injuries like that lol. I had a kickoff return for a td after he got into the end zone he was cheap shotted. Bam! Broken ankle.

Definitely agree on this one! I don't remember what team I was playing but I had to kneel the time out and on the last one his line came hard...caught us both off guard!

All right, we've advanced to Week 9. Several games went unplayed this past week. A lot of them have been discussed, but I just want to say, as we finish out this season, if you're having trouble getting in touch with an opponent, please PM me (and please don't leave it for the last minute). Just posting offhand comments in the thread isn't going to get it resolved.

At this point, I'm not even 100% sure who still cares enough to be playing all of their games. So, if someone is PM'ing me telling me that they haven't heard anything from their opponent, I'm probably going to be inclined to let them play the CPU. Anyway, the deadline for Week 9 is 5/9.

Had a really fun game with Tiger yesterday. Although my passing game was great, I had -2 rushing yards, while Tiger ran for over 200 with Arian Foster. So I really need some help in the secondary (Tiger did give me some tips) and I need a HB who isn't made of glass.

Come on. I can't post anything if I'm annoyed? We were both in contact very much. He was supposed to put them on auto and didn't. By the time I was able to play at 4pm on the deadline, it was already to late to try and contact you to switch them over.

That's not what I'm saying at all. You're allowed to be annoyed. As long as it doesn't turn into a post of "How come my opponent wasn't put on auto and my game got simmed??????" it doesn't make much difference to me. If he was supposed to do it and didn't, then yeah...that's on him. But it also raises the question for the future of whether you'd be willing to trust that your opponent will take care of it or not.

This just happened with a different game the previous week. My post wasn't solely meant for you. It's becoming a more common trend as we reach the latter stages of the league...and it's something everyone should be conscious of.

The CAG gods were not to blame on this one at all. We both never asked for them to be out on auto. I don't mind the simming, I just mind to missing out on sleep. I love sleep.

Tiger, you've got some explaining to do. 63-7 win over the CPU Packers with Cam Newton throwing for 5 TDs and Arian Foster rushing for 4. 553 yards of offense, and only a 12:13 to 7:47 difference in time of possession. That very much looks like mining XP. You're expected to play the CPU the same way you would a human opponent. Obviously, backups were never brought in...and it really doesn't look like much clock was chewed. I've already had a few people question why you're playing in a "learning league" to begin with, since you've put up some pretty ridiculous numbers across both leagues. Have anything to say here?

first off i appreciate you asking me to explain myself.
cam newton- 9-13 252 yrds 5 td's with a 79 yrd long td pass to bowe...all happened in the first half
foster- 35 attempts 294 yrds..... 4 td's all came in the third and beginning of the 4th
with them turning it over 4 times i had a short field 3/4 times and not taking up much time
the whole 3-4 quarters the time was being chewed out with running the ball...i knelt out 2 drives in the 4th
and as far as being in this league.. i went 6-10 in the official league this year for my first year...yea i had good rushing stats in there but almost everyone would play a man nickel defense so i ran when i was up and i ran when i was down...i took what they were giving me...id be down 28 and still be able to break off 20-30 yrd runs.

but seeing as the complete story is not published anywhere it is hard for anyone else to see how it went down...i also believe anyone who has played me has had positive feed back about my play style and myself..i think maybe we should play a practice game...and that goes for anyone else who wants to play me that isnt on my schedule.....if there are anymore questions id be more then willing to answer them

I don't doubt that the CPU was turning the ball over, and I appreciate the steps you did take to not run up the score. But this still doesn't really address Foster even playing in the 4th quarter. With a 49-7 lead at the start of the quarter, it's kind of crazy that he's even in there. No offence, but personally, I wish he would have broken his leg, so you could realize how stupid that was. Considering how late in the league this is happening, I'm going to give you a warning strike. You've already proven yourself to be very dominant in this league. Don't get greedy and start pushing your luck.
