i talked to my buddy thats on the waiting list he said he would take them and that he tried to post but when he registered it didnt go thru for some reason and that he re-registered this morning wont be able to post until wednesday but if u send him an invite to the league he will be good to go and until he can post on wednesday whoever plays him just contact me and i will contact him and play the middle man


I'm ok with that as long as he's active and understands the rules. Most of it is outlined in the OP, but I kind of get the feeling that some people haven't bothered to read it, considering some of the issues we've had.

Ok, finally got the free agency "draft" groups together. Just want to give everyone a heads up so they can start thinking about who they want to sign and release. The rules for signing a free agent are as follows:

FA Pickup Rules

1. We will pick up Free Agents from the list in 8 groups (based on inverse standings). I will post a list of the draft order and then allow the first 4 teams a set amount of time to pick. It is first-come first-served based on that order, so team #1 doesn't have preference over team #2 and so on.

I decided to make the groups smaller this year to give the lower ranked teams a fair shot at getting the player they want. However, to make up for this, the amount of time between groups won't be as large. If you miss your "window of exclusivity", of course you can still choose a free agent. But don't be surprised if a team with a better record gets the guy you wanted. It pays to keep up with the thread.

2. Any player currently on the FA wire may be picked up, regardless of positional need. The same restrictions which apply to injury replacements do not apply here.

3. When it is your group's turn, you must post in this thread who you are picking up. Do not just add them in the game. Once you've posted here, you can then add them. If you pick someone up in game, but someone else claimed them here first, they get the player.

4. You must drop a player if your team has 53 players. If for some reason, you have less than 53 players on your team, you will not be required to drop a player, but you may still do so if you would like. With the inclusion of salaries this year, I think forcing a one for one move is less important than in years past. And after the first season, this won't be an issue again anyway.

5. Even if you're not at your console, you can still pick. Claiming someone here saves him for you, even if someone else gets on their 360 first.

Please post your FA selection in this format:

Team Name:
Player Added: Name, Position
Player Dropped: Name, Position

Close game in Denver! Much closer than the score indicates. The 31st ranked defense really stepped it up today, and it appears my defensive studies have helped. Offense played fairly well.

Good game Flyerfan!

Good game to you as well.

I really wanted to challenge that 3rd and 1 call in the 1st quarter on the opening drive, definitely thought I got the 1st down with McFadden but pressed A too fast after the play as I tend to do and couldn't pause it once the play was called. Your defense was really good. I chose to receive first knowing you had the top offense in the league so far and second to last defense, thought I needed a quick score to keep pace.

Chargers hold off the Chiefs to win 31-28. Really good game. Before we played I told myself over and over to not throw or force any dumb passes, as I have a terrible habit of doing that. I only threw one pick and it was a dumb forced pass that I knew it was a pick as soon as I threw it. Other then that though, I did pretty good. Cool did a great job shutting down my running game as I really couldn't get anything going. My defense came through though with I think 3 picks. One of them returned for a TD. He really started to get his offense going near the end of the game, which gave me a scare when he scored to put it within three. There was only like 39 seconds or so and I was able to recover the onside kick and run the clock out. Good game.

You can update my availability on the first page. I'm on the East Coast now, for good thankfully. I am available weekdays after 3:45 and weekends at almost anytime(but weekdays are preferred). :p

Luckily I've been able to schedule games with every opponent so far and it's been very nice being able to work it out and play a human opponent. :)

I think we're only allowed to sign one guy at a time. Until everyone gets a chance.

That is correct. Just one free agent for now. We may do another round of free agency later in this first season. But once we reach the offseason, this draft style will no longer be necessary since we'll be able to negotiate with players after that.

Just to make sure this isn't the thing holding us up, we're not going through the groups one team at a time. As long as it is your group's turn to pick a free agent (or beyond your group's turn), you can choose someone. So, we're not specifically waiting on Jacksonville here. Any team in group 1 could make a selection right now.

Do we say who we want first and then sign them or vice versa?

Idk how I want to present this but figured I would say something cause it did piss me off. Dude Fuck goes 5 wide with time running down and runs it twice with his QB in the final 45 secs to get in field goal range. Everyone went deep and then he runs with QB, obviously he knew what he was trying to do. I am mainly pissed cause that drive decided the game.

Really getting tired of people not understanding what "play right" means. Though, one has to wonder if this is karma, as I just read about you doing a squib kick and recovering it to kick a field goal in the other league. Sooo yeah...

Seriously, people CUT THE SHIT! It's one thing for people to need every subtle nuance of "don't be a dick" spelled out for them. But the rules are in the OP. Whether you give a damn to take the time to read them or not, you're responsible for knowing them. It should also be known that I don't screw around. Anybody who proves to be bad for the league and has multiple complaints against them, I have no qualms kicking out. It's happened before.

I'm not going to repeat again that this league is about far more than who has the most points at the end of the game. You might think you're a bad ass just destroying teams and asserting your video game football dominance, but nobody is going to want to play you. Get it through your thick ass heads and straighten the Fuck up.

I have just ordered Madden 13 from Amazon! I'm ready to rejoin the league, if you guys will have me. I see the Saints are open. If you're willing to hold them for me, I'll gladly take them when Madden gets here in the next 4-14 days :)
