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.


I knew you'd be on here bitching. Funny coming from someone who used FB DIVE 3 times. That is literally the cheapest run play in the game. That's is why it's banned except for 1-time use in my other leagues. Anyways, here is the WHOLE story..

3rd and 15ish from deep in my territory, 1 timeout. I go 5 wide and get a first down. Obviously I go no huddle. Dude rushes TWO guys. TWO. What am I supposed to do here? It's not like I ran teh ball as soon as I hiked the ball. I even went thru my reads and nobody was open. Am I supposed to throw it into double coverage? Or throw it out of bounds? Half my linemen were just standing there, blocking NOBODY. WTF... If I'm not allowed to run in this situation, you could literally rush 2 every pass down and not have to worry about it. It wasn't like, oooh i'm going to go 5 wide and then run. I was 5 wide on THIRD down, and ran no huddle with less than a minute left. How is rushing 2 and dropping 9 "playing right"? I literally looked down at my QB and saw nobody. NEVER had the intention of running until it was presented. And it wasn't the first time I went 5 wide the whole game either.. if I was going to do this to exploit it, how come I didnt do it earlier on other 3rd downs?

Group 2 (You may now make your selection)

New Orleans Saints
Detroit Lions

Again, Group 1, you can still pick up a free agent. You just have more competition now.

In the OP:

"If you see your opponent dropping 8 men back into coverage, and there's just nowhere to throw the ball, of course, you can take off. "

- That's EXACTLY what I did.

If that's what really happened, then you have a point. The problem we ALWAYS get in these situations is that the stories are so far apart. I agree, if he's dropping back 9 into coverage, and you're not taking off immediately, it's a legit play. No one would expect you to force a throw into double and triple coverage. As with previous issues we've had, for now, it's going to have to be his word vs yours. But obviously, this isn't a complaint you want people having against you again. So, take that under advisement.

As for the FB dive thing...I really don't understand how that is a cheap play. There was a huge issue with QB Sneaks in last years game...but I know I've stuffed 3rd and 1's plenty to know that this isn't an exploit. I really don't see how it's any different than the argument of dropping 9 back into coverage. If you can't go to your power back on 3rd and short, it gives the defense an unfair advantage...just as not being allowed to run with your QB when every receiver is blanketed would.

I just want to stress the "play right" mantra wasn't specifically directed at you. I feel like we've had several players tip toeing the line between good sportsmanship and being a douche because they don't want to lose lately. I just wanted to remind everyone that one person complaining about you is just their opinion. But if multiple people make the same complaint, it starts to gain traction, and becomes an issue. Lets not let that happen.

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 :)

Glad to have you back. But yeah, DVO has a guy in the process of taking the Saints. The Vikings are also available though since Rapid Shot never bothered to respond after getting angry about a game. Let me know if you want Minnesota and they're yours.

Most likely tomorrow morning. I'd estimate 9-10 AM CST. And I'm about to send your guy the invite right now. I told steggy to go ahead and play the CPU for Packers/Saints though because he's going out of town Wednesday...and I didn't think it was fair to have to scramble to set something up for tomorrow.

bengals beat jags 45-21

foster came to play this game with 22 carries for 304 yards and 5 TDs

GG tower i think if it wasnt for gabbert ur team would be alot better i cant believe that the kickoff u did that i fumbled u didnt return i think u got maddened hard on that one. and dalton threw alot of bad passes that should have been picked. i honestly think this score should have been alot closer than it was but tower got maddened pretty hard in this bout.

I was just saying it pissed me off. I was just presenting what happened. I am not trying to get you in "trouble" but just wanted to see how others felt about it. If people never say anything, even if its a small issue people can just get away with stuff. I am in these leagues to play fair and follow the rules.

N8 as far as what I did in the other league I responded about it. I didn't even know it was brought up till I read your post. I am glad you brought it to my attention.

I understand you were mad, but in no way did I make my playcall with the intention of running, which is what you made it sound like. I made that 3rd and long PASSING with 4WR and 1TE, so I ran the hurry-up and the same play again... you had everyone covered so I ran, couldn't make it out of bounds, so another hurry-up. The 2nd time, I actually audibled to quick pass..and once again you had everyone covered.. I wanted to stop the clock without throwing an INT, so I ran it towards the sideline. If I was going to intentionally run, I would've put Tebow in. I was still about 15 yards away from field goal range after those runs.

I understand, it was more that they all seemed to be on streaks. Had it happened any other time I probably would have let it go, but back to back on the game winning drive is what did it for me.

----
buffalo bills receive:

3rd round draft pick
----
arizona cardinals receive:

5th round draft pick

wr brad smith
75ovr - 28 years old
contract: $3.00m every year, the final year being 2014.
----

the reason behind the trade is that i want a second decent, speedy wr across from larry fitzgerald and i also want a speedy qb to run a triple option set (and possibly take over for skelton entirely at this rate). Smith has switched between qb and wr in real life so he has throwng ability and recieving ability.

The edit is moving both picks down a round to slightly shift value to the cardinals to balance the trade.


trade approved

Group 3 (You may now make your selection)

Minnesota Vikings
Houston Texans
Cincinatti Bengals
St. Louis Rams

And just so everyone can keep track, these are the moves that have already been made

Group 1
Jacksonville Jaguars - Jeff Otah, RT
Arizona Cardinals - Vince Young, QB
Baltimore Ravens
Buffalo Bills - Plaxico Burress, WR

Group 2
New Orleans Saints
New York Giants - James Farrior, MLB
Detroit Lions
Green Bay Packers - Nick Collins, FS

As before, teams from Groups 1 and 2 can still pick up a free agent if they missed their exclusive window. Just don't be surprised if the guy you wanted is already taken.

Ok, making a small addendum to the free agency policy. When I made the requirement that everyone needed to drop a player in order to sign one, this was under the assumption that everybody should have 53 players on their roster at this point. The Cardinals owner pointed out that he apparently cut too many players during the preseason, and adding Young would put him back at 53.

So, if for some reason, you have less than 53 players right now, you don't HAVE to cut somebody. The only other team affected by this right now is the Packers (who only have 51 players for some reason). Steggy, if you want to re-sign Brett Goode, you can. But of course, you don't have to. I'm really confused why some teams were way below 53 players to begin with.
