Sorry for the triple post. The Super Bowl should go down today. Also, the trade credit jump on Amazon back to around $17. Mine will leave after the Super Bowl. ;)

Sorry for the quad post.

 

Broncos win the Super Bowl 45 - 35 over the previously undefeated 49ers! 

 

it was a hard fought game. Arian Foster ended up being more than I was expecting. He tore it up and ran for well over 200 yards. Luckily, Reggie was as active as ever and responded on the ground and air, with over 250+ all purpose yards. Jeff Demps took two kickoffs to house which paved a way to the win. Reggie Bush was the MVP. Excellent game, Tiger! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time!

Wow, sounds like an exciting game. Of course, Madden Jeff Demps did more in that game than real life Jeff Demps will in his career, lol. But that's a fitting end to Madden 13, haha. And with that, we are done. I wish we could have gotten through more than 3 seasons...but in a way, I feel like the between the season crap kind of dragged things down. As much as I liked having a salary cap and free agency, there were times when the extra things became tedious...the practices especially.

 

I'm a little worried about what is supposed to be added in Madden 25 (setting ticket prices, assigning vendors, relocating teams, etc). I just hope they don't waste all of their time focusing on these gimmicky things when there are several other areas that would make online franchise more enjoyable (being able to change your playbook without retiring your coach, defensive assignments, being able to practice with your team outside of the defined XP conditions, better website integration, etc, etc). Anyway, thanks to everyone who participated this year. We had our ups and downs, but we got through it. I definitely have a vision for what I want this league to be...and we'll continue to work toward that in August. Thanks for playing!


Do you have what it takes to compete?

Congrats Dark Rider. Looks like the '12-'13 Dolphins can pop the bubbly. Glad to see you win it man, well done. Thanks to Nate for guiding us through another year of maddening Madden.

I can't say whether I'll pick up M25. As much as I love the community my weariness of Madden reached critical mass by the end. I'm on the fence.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it! I did not expect to make it this far.

 

I would also like to thank Nate! I think he has done an excellent job of keeping this league running. I appreciate it, man! On that note, I am not sure if I will buy Madden 25. After putting hundreds of hours into this game, I am officially wiped out. We'll just have to see! I did have a lot of fun though!

Well, if you realy think about it, there's still over 2 months until the next Madden comes out. I could easily be put in the "burnt out" catgegory as well. But after a 2 month break and real football starting up, I'm sure I'll have an itch to play again. But this break is definitely necessary.

Madden 13 is now trading in for a ridiculous amount of $21.87 at Amazon if anyone is looking to get rid of their copy. You can get an extra $10 if you use the credit towards certain preorders. They have a good selection of games including this gen and next gen. I'll probably use mine to get a half price PS4 game.

Dammit...now I really wish I had won my playoff game. It was at $16.89 when I locked in my trade, then when they started that $10 bonus promo, it dropped to like $6.00...so I just mailed it off. Can't believe it's basically double what I got now.

Yeah, I've been getting Amazon TIVs wrong too.  I traded in Madden, Bioshock Ultimate Rapture Edition, and another game to GS for $33 after their $10 promo which was better than what I would have gotten through Amazon.  But now I wish I had sent Madden and Bioshock into Amazon anyway.  If I had timed it right I could have gotten $45 plus the $10 promo.

Haha, and the NFL season hasn't even started yet. It's amazing what a month off can do. And we've still got another month till launch. You should be frothing by then. ;)

I know. I haven't turned on my 360 since I attempted to play my Wild Card game and it kept shutting down. I took it to the car wash and used the "space age" vacuum on it (that's seriously what it says on the sign :lol: ) That thing really sucks. I couldn't believe how much dust came out of the vents. I'm hoping that fixes the problem, otherwise I'll be picking up a new system the day Madden comes out. I would've had one by now if I'd felt the urge to play any other 360 games. I've been spending most of my gaming time on The Show.

In case anyone is wondering, I am definitely intending on bringing this league back in a very no-nonsense kind of way. I think the biggest thing I'm proud of from last year was just fleshing out the rules and establishing black and white terms for what is allowed and what isn't. Obviously, some of that might need to be revised for the new game, but my hope is it will give us a head start on avoiding a lot of BS. I do think I'll revise the strike system though. Really, nobody needs more than 3 strikes. I think 1st = suspension, 2nd = 1 game suspension, 3rd = booted from league, is probably good enough. I'd like the focus this year to just be enjoying football. I'm definitely not going to have time to keep going over the rules. And hte people who in it for the right reasons won't be affected by it anyway.

 

I'm also waiting to create a new thread or kick anything off until the Official League gets their spots handed out. We had several people flip flopping last year, and I'd like to avoid that if possible. Even if the end result is this league being scaled back a bit, I'm fine with that. I even had an idea about how it would be nice if there were a league where people just played as their favorite team, regardless of how good they are (I know some people do...but often this puts them at a disadvantage). Of course, this creates scenarios where a really really good player might love a really really good team...but I guess even that at least feels more authentic. I don't know, there probably isn't a "solution". I'd just love to get away from this "whatever gives me the best chance of winning" mindset.

 

I'm just thinking about guys like fero, who is a Dolphins fan...uber, who is a Jets fan...Matt Young, who is a Packers fan...jza1218, who is a Giants fan...Ultimate Matt X, who is a Browns fan...and myself (Titans fan). These are pretty much all examples of people who maintain a reasonable amount of balance in either taking a "bad team" and making them better...or taking a "good team" and having it help their game. Again, I don't know how feasible something like this would ever be...but to me, I guess it seems like a league would be more fun if you knew people actually cared about their team in real life, and weren't just using them because it gives them the best chance to curb stomp you. Anyway..maybe that will spark some conversation, haha.

 

/Madden Utopia, lol. ;)

It's tricky for me. i don't really have a favorite team. I usually watch about all of the Colts and Bengals games since I'm between the areas and most of their games are the ones shown on regional CBS/FOX coverage, so I guess it would be one of those if I had to choose.

 

Has there been any thought of just doing a fantasy draft league? I know those drafts take forever, but it seems like it might even out the playing field a bit.
