I saw Matt Ryan threw 8 tds and I'm not going to lie my first thought was geez running up the score much for XP and then I saw the final score. Must of been some game.


It was one hell of a game.

Falcons - 61
Broncos - 58

It was a shootout all game. It ended up coming down to a last minute field goal in over time to finish it. There are some things I need to change with my defense, but I made up for it on offense. Some of the stats are insane.

Matt Ryan, 8TDs, 1 int, 548yrds.
Julio Jones, 325yrds, 5TDs.
Spoiler


Peyton Manning, 4TDs, 325yrds,
Willis MaGahee, 284yrds, 3TDs,
Jacob Tamme, 208yrds, 3Tds,

Great game aft3rsh0ck! It got insane.

Because Beck is the ideal running QB... I was thinking like Vick or Pryor or Tyrod Taylor or someone.


WOW...My bad....Dick!

It's not very gentlemanlike to start the third string HB you wanted in the trade with me solely because "shoot i forgot i need 3 rb" and run all over the field with him just to prove you can.

Besides that, fairly expected outcome. Patriots 21 Cardinals 3.

And I absolutely need a new quarterback, Skelton is pick city. Anyone with a QB who can run hit me up, any OVR I'm interested.


Sounds like TEBOW TIME! I also have dirty Sanchez... somebody please take them

Now I don't mean to sound like a dick or anything but with the XP system this year, shouldn't we reconsider this "running up the score rule"? I mean, when you have a bad or young team and you're trying to catch up to the big dogs with stacked teams every XP counts.

And to say its not realistic isn't exactly accurate, doesn't anyone remember the Pats 2007 FU season? Or how about the Bucs(I think it's them) playing hard right until the end of the game this year(going after Eli on the kneel down).

Even when I'm losing, I don't mind it because I hate watching the game clock slowly tick down, even if it means the other team is adding onto the blowout. I mean its really on me to stop them from doing that. Plus I wouldn't want to deprive them of getting XP for the players just because my feelings might get hurt.

I know this is a gentleman's league and everything and I don't mean to sound like a douchebag but I think with the XP system this year it's kinda silly not to allow teams to try to get as much points as possible.

Maybe I'm alone in thinking this way, but I'd like to hear other opinions.

Same here. The reason I joined this league was so people don't cheese, take advantage of exploits, and be assholes by running up the score.

Yeah if people start running up the score people are going to get discouraged and quit. And if they are able to blow teams out then they probably dont need the xp as much as the person getting blown out. Just my opinion.

Running up the score just makes the game take longer.

IMO that would be a slippery slope.

I need to run up the score so I get get XP.
Because I need XP, I'm going use any mean necessary to win.
I'm going use any mean necessary to win, so I'm going to be a douche bag exploiter.
I'm going to be a douche bag exploiter, and everyone is going to hate me.
Everyone hates me, so I have no self esteem and am depressed.
I am depressed, so I am going to become a stripper and do drugs.
I am now ugly because of the drugs, and lost my job as a stripper. Now I do sexual favors for money on the corner by McDonalds.

See what happens if we allow running up the score?

Yup, I'm sorry but I couldn't disagree more. This same argument was brought up in the other league (though not from an "I have a bad team" position), and it's just not a negotiable iseue. The notion that you're going to "catch up with the good teams" by running a hurry up offense when you're up 42- 3, so you can get more XP for your players is ridiculous.

You may get that XP you're so desperately chasing, but you'll also be playing in an empty league because nobody is going to just sit there and tolerate that garbage. This league was created for the sole purpose of sportsmanship. Anybody who has a problem accepting that is in the wrong place.

I'm not talking about running a hurry up offense. I'm talking about letting the clock tick down to 1 before every play. Or purposefully not scoring touchdowns.

I'm talking about running the ball and breaking off a big run and stopping at the goal line and not scoring and turning the ball over on downs just because I shouldn't be "running up the score".

My week 2 game was a blowout but I wasn't running up the score. I was running the ball on most downs and it just so happened that I kept breaking off decent runs and kept the chains moving. Eventually I scored. I was trying to let the clock run out as much as possible and not throwing Hail Mary plays and not running a hurry up.

That's not how your initial post made it seem. Everyone is fine with the situation your bringing up, we all realize sometimes scoring is inevitable. But when you say "Score as much as possible" it gives off a tone of, i'm going to be a douche and do whatever it takes to get as many points as i can no matter the situation, which is just stupid and waste everyone's time because it makes the game unnecessarily longer.

Bucs-Giants wound up desyncing in the 3rd quarter with TB up 21-7. It appears the game didn't count. However he had to take off right after, so I guess he should play the cpu.

Sorry about that jza, I think the lag was once again on my end. I don't have a great Internet connection but it should be good enough for this game so I don't know what the hell is going on. If I keep having problems I might just have to quit the league, it will piss me off but I don't know what to do at this point.

If we don't end up playing again you can get the win if you want, the wins and losses aren't the end of the world for me. I just can't stand getting disconnected in a game like that, in the 3rd quarter when it looked like I might have a shot to win (I'm not a good Madden player at all lol). ARGH so frustrating!!!!
