Edit: like I said boneheaded move that I have NEVER done before and will never do again,I took the time to send you 5 messages via voice to apologize profusely! You call us classless pieces of shift (me right now) and this is how you decide to deal with this? By ranting like that. At least I'm an adult, took responsibility and laid it out there. The score was the exact same either way and like I said in this case, slip in judgement.

A commissioner is supposed to be someone who tempers action with wisdom! You sir, are not doin that right now and letting your emotions act without the benefit of intellect.

Check yourself in the way you handle things. I'm surei am not alone when I say that we want a fair commish and not just one who is fair when it doesn't involve him.


I'm an adult who is saying "enough is enough". I'm not playing in this league...let alone running it to compete against people that don't think it's enough to win by 21 points...but feel the need to disrespect their opponent as well. As I said, I'd rather play against the CPU than deal with that garbage. I'm not kicking you out immediately. I'm saying enough is enough. There's not going to be any more "oopsies" for obvious shit that a 6 year old would know he shouldn't do. If you're an "adult", play like one and show a little class when you're winning a game by 21 with 3 minutes left. There is no realm in which this behavior is acceptable.

Have you seen my defense? I've had 28 scored on me in 2 mins.

Like I said...not my brightest moment. Just control of the clock...only use none other.


This would be the argument for throwing it on 3rd down...not on 1st. For that matter, would you care to tell people how much success you had running the ball with Spiller/Forsett? No matter how you want to paint it, you didn't need to throw the ball there. The fact that you want to act argumentative and defensive about it just proves the point even further.

And for the record, the reason I get particularly agitated when these instances involve me is because I can actually confirm what happened, rather than having to take one person's word over another. As I've said, we've had a lot of other questionable issues lately, but it's hard to tell who is telling the truth when the stories are so far apart. But when I'm witness to it, I know exactly what's going on. It's not even about the loss. I was fine losing 38-17...as indicated by me kicking the field goal and kicking the ball deep. I just didn't expect that to be viewed as an opportunity to get down the field again quickly.

Seems Doc is in the wrong and should have just been running it. I agree though that the harsh language and way it was presented wasn't necessarily appropriate on your end n8.

Does that go for sore losers to you ASSHOLE! Fuck you and your shit! I've admitted I was wrong and you know what....this isn't everything as it is just a game and I understand your aggravation because you fucking suck in this game! Maybe not as bad as me most but ill tell ya what I'm gonna give you a leg up....I'm quitting because for you to sit there and say i dont deserve respect when I am the one who gets beat pretty bad in this league alot of the time, I'd say I get lucky when I win honestly (aside from our commish who has an amazing high horse by the way) is a pretty fucked up thing to say. I've NEVER DISRESPECT YOU AND OFTEN TIMES BACKED YOU UP! I don't need you to say your kicking me out. No worries big guy I'm quitting.

I'm not gonna say this league is a shitty league because a lot of the guys in here are solid and good guys in general. IM AN ORIGINAL MEMBER OF THIS LEAGUE and for you to tell me that I don't deserve respect because I'm classless? Wow.....get off your fucking "stay at home dads of America" podium man. I get it....girlpower and all but seriously you started out fair in my eyes and now your just a nazi.

Have a good one fellas and hot damn that felt good!!! Well n8 had his shitstuffed earlier so aside from the butthurt im sure he would agree on some levels.

Most of this isn't even relevant. Calling me a sore loser... Yup, because I didn't show any acceptance of a loss at all by kicking a field goal and not going for an onside kick. You can't even keep your story straight, dude. It was 4th down...it was 1st down...you "needed the 1st down"...your defense gives up 28 points in 2 minutes. How can you not see that these are flimsy arguments of a guilty man?

As I said, the issue was 100% a respect thing. Anybody who is up by 21 points with 3 minutes left in the game should not be throwing on 1st down. This is not even debatable. Thinking that you "needed to" just shows a complete lack of respect and sportsmanship. Call me whatever names you want...but I didn't create this problem. You had a comfortable lead and got the ball back late in the game.

All you had to do was coast to victory. Considering you averaged over 5 yards per carry with your backs, even running the ball with me blitzing likely wouldn't have been a threat to you. EVEN if I had somehow forced a 3 and out, you could have eaten up a large portion of the clock by running the ball before you punted. Why does this need to be spelled out for people? THIS is the cause of my frustration. Not because I'm a "sore loser" or that I "suck", or whatever pointless insults you want to hurl at me. If you can't play the game in a respectful manner, you shouldn't be here.

I'd feel bad hopping in and vulturing Doc's Texans, but my preference would be to take them. I'm not the biggest Vikings fan, haha.

It's up to Nate though. If he'd rather I keep Minny, that's okay too.

Also, while I can agree Doc throwing in that instance was a little douche-y, I do agree that n8 overreacted a tad in the forum. Is it true Doc tried to apologize five-plus times over XBL?

I just hate seeing some of the original members falling out. I think the few of us remain DO subscribe to the spirit of this league, and if he did apologize and did end up running out the clock, he did everything he could to try to "right" the situation.

This game can be horribly infuriating (especially for a sub-par player like myself), so I get the frustration. But, we have to put it all into perspective, too. It's a damn video game.

FYI: I am moving into a new house this weekend (as long as closing goes smoothly), so I will NOT have internet over the weekend. I hope to have Bright House out to hook everything up Monday, but whoever I play week five — I may not be available. I'm fine with you playing the CPU if we cannot connect.

He sent me voice messages that I told him I couldn't listen to because I didn't have my headset available. Also, I immediately paused the game after the pass and messaged him "uncalled for. i'm out". I didn't receive any voice messages until after that message, and after I had put my controller down to post in here. If I hadn't said anything, who knows what would have happened. My guess is another TD.

I'm not trying to kick anybody out. But if we're using the argument of someone being a "longtime member", isn't that a point for why he should especially know better? With two longtime members playing each other, that's the kind of stuff that you shouldn't even have to worry about. I'm just not buying into the "oops! I accidentally called a passing play" nonsense. If you don't know what you should do with a 21 point lead with 3 minutes left in the game, I just don't know what to say.

This isn't about being outplayed. It's not about being frustrated with the game's outcome. It's about a person doing something that you shouldn't see in a league like this. It's just like trying to recover a squib kick. You know when you're doing it that it's a shitty thing to do...and you do it anyway. When my opponent does that stuff to me in a league game that is supposed to be the epitome of respect and sportsmanship, it just makes me want to rage quit. And that's exactly the type of thing that we shouldn't be dealing with in here. And it's come up a lot lately, and I'm really tired of dealing with it. People can either follow the rules or get out. I'm over the hand holding at this point.

You never told me you couldn't listen to them. You simply said NO HEADSET, then went on to say what a classless douche bag I was. You can listen to messages WITHOUT a headset and I thought you were saying NO HEADSET So I cant respond with voice. Here I thought you had listened to 4-5 15 second long voice messages with me actually explaining what happened. I thought you came into the forum with that KNOWLEDGE. WOW....ok...as I explained earlier, and thank yo for correcting me, makes more sense to me now.

COMING CLEAN BELOW. NEVER LIED OR INTENDED TO, and never tried to defend myself, just tried to explain myself which is why I sent the voice messages to you personally.

It was 1st down from the 20, though with everything I have been saying you should be able to ascertain that I wasn't paying to much attention obviously. I hardly ever call my own plays and rather audible from the line of scrimmage to what I have. GAMEFLOW CALLED A PASS PLAY. So i thought why not, however, the far left receiver, like I explained in the voice messages that I thought you listened to before you went off, was supposed to go on a short out route and when I noticed you pulled up your safety I was happy because I thought OK, quick catch, either tackle or go down, control the clock still. Like I said, while it was something I SHOULD HAVE AUDIBLE D INTO A RUN PLAY (lapse in judgment) but with gameflow doing it I thought it cant be terrible (as bad as this thread has blown up). THe play went off and rather than go on the out like I thought he went on a HIGH slant left, NO ONE WAS AROUND HIM because you pulled your DB down. He may have caught the ball about 30 yards down field and I went down about maybe 15 yards after the catch (again, my mistake and yes I got over zealous but immediately caught myself and dove at about the 25-20 yard line) It was a big play I admit, but definitely not something I did with intentions of BUTTHURTING N8 the way it did. He paused it and I knew what was coming as I was typing he sent me the message "uncalled for, Im out." so in the middle of my message I stopped and thought i need to actually get my headset on and tell him this. How can I have a chance to respond when immediately after the play he sends a fairly quick message like that, and honestly I was typing something out but got his first so I decided to be better explain via voice. BTW N8, it wasnt SPILLER in the backfield on that play, it was Forsett, who did have a touchdown but his carry isnt what I like to see on a OPP 20 with a blitz coming and 330 left in a game.

After he said, IM OUT, as I explained before...I WAS PLANNING TO MUFF 3 runs, because I did feel bad and couldnt take it back so what could I do to make it right? DIVE ON 3 runs as fast as possible (although I was sending the VM so i know the clock ran about 115 mins off) then I COMPLETELY MISSED THE FG with about 130 left on the clock, may have been a little less as I know he had the ball with over a minute left because I had to wait 10 for the game to actually run the clock down as he wasnt there.
He failed to mention that part, he had over a minute to get some "dignity" that I had taken from him back on that ONE play that nothing came of. It was just a long pass play....at the wrong time.

As I said, I didnt blame him for saying what he said about me, but at the same time I am a man and game or not, the ass was going and going and going....all the while I'm thinking he heard what I said over the 45-1 min of voice I sent him. TO call someone a classless DOUCHE and piece of shit since they have been here from the beginning with NO things like this AT ALL.....id say that is a little overboard.....I apologize for losing my cool and going off at the end but I will not be berated like that when I put myself up here, admitted I was wrong and did have a few facts MIXED up but I didn't 100% lie as you said. I was playing the fucking commissioner, what good would it do for me to bold face lie. Matter of factly, I honestly didn't think it was first down after everything was said and done....HE called me a classless douche, then said on 1st down is a shitty move, I had already exited the game and even responded saying Was it? Check again? ........Again thinking that he heard what I had to say and my apologies!

Go ahead N8, act high class (which I personally think you lost class, if you had any at all for that mater) and have a witty comeback for that, I came clean, explained the best I could and am still quitting. I would rather go on the waiting list for the main league, GET THE SHIT BEAT OUTTA ME THERE then stay in this fascist regime. I wanted to clarify from my end once and for all so those of you who saw N8 going off and then being calm then going off again....Seriously seemed to me like it was more than just that play, especially since he just quit and that extra possession literally probably took 10 mins. That legitimately pissed because of a pass, or a mix of the pass and shitty play by you the entire game?

And kaster, I would be honored if you took the Texans my friend.

Either way at this point the damage is done and we all need to move on.

Whatever, man. Obviously, I'm not mad about it anymore (notice no more fucks). At the time, you were 100% deserving of the blow up you got. The "Chill, dude. It's just a game" argument doesn't work with me. I take time out of my day, time away from my family to run this league and to play this game with you guys. I don't expect to win every game. But I do expect to be respected and for the people in here to play with honor and class.

Over the past week, we've had multiple accusations against people for doing things that are not in the spirit in which this league was created. I've hammered home the point "play right" over and over. The rules are fairly specific. I spent a good amount of time writing them up. Some people don't even bother to read them (as evidenced by some of the questions that get asked). And when the most basic of principles in these rules just gets ignored, I had had enough.

The idea that you "weren't paying attention" to what was going on up by 21 with 3 minutes left in the game is just as preposterous. But I'm not even going to argue against that because that stands on its own. You "made a mistake". Ok, whatever. I guess it just blows my mind how I don't seem to have problems not being a dick to somebody in a game (say what you want about my behavior in the forums after the fact...but I remind you that that behavior was provoked). It's not something I have to "remind myself of" or "restrain myself from". So, when stuff like this happens, it just makes me question the mentality of the person involved.

Even, fsecreast...with his "what's the big deal...running up the score is cool" stance, makes him sound like a douchebag to me. I'm not saying that as a judgment against him, but what in the hell is wrong with people that they don't understand the concept being gracious to their opponent and letting the game end as quickly as possible? This IS NOT a subject up for debate, and from this point forward, I'm not going over it again. If you can't accept the rules of this league and are going to be constantly testing them, you shouldn't be here.

The bickering that goes on in these forums is really a downer. I understand rules are there for a reason and need to be followed but the constant ranting back and forth every week about who did something suspect in a game just makes me lose interest in even participating in CAG leagues of any sort. This isn't even about who is wrong and who is right. It is about handling the problem like an adult and brushing off the pointless shit.

Who needs Jersey Shore when you have a CAG forum? When you are winning you don't care what happens, but when you are losing and frustrated you start looking for the slightest thing to call someone out on. We should have a 24 hour rule. Play your game, and after 24 hours you can bring up your complaint. But going to the forum .023 seconds after a game ends and starting a flame war just makes everyone involved look childish.

I've seen so many people complaining that when I play my games I find myself sifting through the playbook looking for a play that won't offend anyone. Or taking a sack when i could have easily ran for a first down simply because i had 4 receivers down the field and everyone's interpretation of the QB running rules vary. I just can't find a game fun to play when I am more concerned about not doing something in game to set someone off on the forum because they thought I should have kicked a 52 yard field goal instead of going for it on 4th down. I really hope all this crap comes to an end and we can just play some football like adults.

If you can't accept the rules of this league and are going to be constantly testing them, you shouldn't be here.



I never said running up the score was cool. But calling me douchebag is a great way to talk respectfully to other members of the league.

What I said was I didn't care if someone did that against me. I have three wins and have no complaints against me that I know of. But I guess I'm a douchebag.

I've seen so many people complaining that when I play my games I find myself sifting through the playbook looking for a play that won't offend anyone. Or taking a sack when i could have easily ran for a first down simply because i had 4 receivers down the field and everyone's interpretation of the QB running rules vary. I just can't find a game fun to play when I am more concerned about not doing something in game to set someone off on the forum because they thought I should have kicked a 52 yard field goal instead of going for it on 4th down. I really hope all this crap comes to an end and we can just play some football like adults.


Not even close to the same situation. With a 21 point lead with 3 minutes left in the game, would you pass the ball on 1st down? That was literally the only issue here. It wasn't about him running the ball all over me. It wasn't about when he scrambled with Schaub when I dropped 8 into coverage. All of that stuff was just "playing the game"...and I respected his skill in doing all of it.

I agree with you completely that having to intrepret when it's ok to do certain things isn't fun for anyone (ie. taking off with your QB when all receivers are blanketed, or using the same running play over and over again). Those are more "I don't know what defense I should be calling" issues. I don't like it when people come in and complain about those things...and I like it even less when people lie about what actually happened, because that gets us nowhere. But a "Whew...I got the ball back, and I can just grind out this clock and coast to victory" situation should be so blatantly obvious, it's stunning that this was even an issue.

But yeah, moving on from it. If Doc wants to quit over it, that's his business. It was a stupid playcall on his part, but I never had any intention of just outright kicking anyone out without a final warning. But as I said, enough is enough. These are basic rules...and they're not even demanding so much. This would easily have been categorized under the "play like a real coach" rule...without even needing any of the extra clarification and specific examples that are in the OP. It's BECAUSE of these things happening that we need the specific examples. "Play like a real coach" should be enough.

We're running a bit behind in the free agency department because of all this extraneous crap. So, I'm going to extend the deadline to 10/11 to make sure everyone gets a chance to grab a free agent before we advance. Considering there are a few empty teams, I wouldn't want the CPU to screw things up for the people who haven't gotten to pick yet if we just went ahead and advanced.

Anyway, on that note...

Group 5 (You may now make your selection)
Oakland Raiders
San Diego Chargers
Indianapolis Colts
Tennessee Titans

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 - Chad Johnson, WR
Buffalo Bills - Plaxico Burress, WR

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

Group 3
Minnesota Vikings
Houston Texans - Albert Haynesworth, DT
Cincinatti Bengals - Jay Dwyer, MLB
St. Louis Rams - Kellen Winslow, TE


Group 4
Denver Broncos - Andre Carter, RE
Atlanta Falcons
Pittsburgh Steelers
Seattle Seahawks

As before, teams from Groups 1 - 4 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.
Do you have what it takes to compete?
