Blade thats a valid reason to not have ur game played nothing u can do about that but for the other people they should be setting there games up tonight for week 11 like so ive already contacted the chiefs owner and asked when he could play. now the balls in his court and he has 3-4 days to get back to me and if he doesnt i made clear contact with him and it falls on him. and if i dont hear from him tonight i will send another pm and a xbl message as well tommrow. it shouldnt be so hard to get games in within 3-4 days i know things come up and shit but it seems like every week in this league people are slacking. everyone joined the league knowing how often games would need to played so i dont see how its so hard to get on real fast see who u play and send a messsage of when u can play. stuff like this kills the league in the long run


You keep that up, and you're going to start sounding like me. ;)

its just frustrating to see this happening over and over and over every week its either the same people or different people everytime theres never a solid week where all games are played on time with no wheres the guy im suppose to be playing and there hasnt been a time that we werre done before the deadline. and im just trying to help u get points across im sure its not always fun to be the man of reason so i thought i would be the voice this time

Agreed! Messaged dark tower today! I always try to message the next weeks owner by the deadline day week before so it gives us ample time to set something up. Especially when it falls on a Monday because it lets me articulate my work schedule so we can nail down a time even better.

"Today we play Bingville, tonite we BEAT Bingville"

Extra cool points to who can say what movie that came from! Just saw it again and forgot how horrible and awesome it was at the same time!

It's cool. I think people generally know what they should be doing. Honestly, in all my years of running leagues, what I've learned is just to keep it moving forward. The people that want to participate will, and the ones who don't won't. The big thing is just not giving people the impression that we'll sit around and wait until the games are played. If somebody has their game simmed, they'll either act differently next time...or they'll just drop out entirely. But as long as the league keeps moving, we'll get to where we're going. Motivating people isn't easy.

Great. Fucking great. Havent touched my 360 since Friday of last week, wanted to hop on to practice before my game and I just got the rrod. I kind of saw it coming because I only play this and NHL, and both games got disc unreadable errors recently. I turned it off immediately right when I saw it, still in semi denial mode thinking I may have been seeing things, but turned it on two more times since then and the evil red eyes flashed at me again.

I'm going to get another one tomorrow, but this is incredibly frustrating. I'm going to estimate Ive spent over $800 just on 360 consoles this gen. Looks like my CPU gets to lose again this week when I'm actually home from work and not in some hotel room in bumblefuck USA.

Sorry for the rant, had to do it.

Damn, that definitely sucks, man. The only solace I can offer you is just knowing that most of us have been there at one point as well. Hope you're back up and running soon.

I doubt it's worth filling out all the paperwork for a $.50 settlement...if it even gets that far.

Yeah...that's two weeks in a row that you haven't been able to get your game played. Glad to see you recognize that as well and are being proactive with your Week 11 game.
Do you have what it takes to compete?

I think I remember it being a bit more than that per game. Like a couple of bucks. I already filled all that out though so I can't remember it.

I worked on it since friday but i didnt get any response to anything until yesterday and the times didnt work out for either of us at that point. Oh well, i'm hoping the next game works out, i didn't think my schedule was that complicated

Not exactly.

Valid claims for the purchase of Madden NFL, NCAA Football, or Arena Football videogames for the Xbox, PlayStation 2, PC, or GameCube platforms (“Sixth Generation Purchasers”) will be valued at $6.79 per new game purchased, up to a total of eight units ($54.32).

Valid claims for the purchase of Madden NFL, NCAA Football, or Arena Football videogames for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or Wii platforms (“Seventh Generation Purchasers”) will be valued at $1.95 per new game purchased, up to a total of eight units ($15.60).


So, games on last gen consoles are actually worth more here. I think I ended up with 5 from last gen and 8 from this gen. Better than I was expecting...but I'll also be shocked if I ever see anything from it. Honestly, EA should be paying us to beta test their shit every year as it is.

Though...if I DO get a check out of this, I'm going to take a picture of me smiling holding it, and post it on EA's Facebook page. That's a whole nother level of heckling right there, lol. :lol:

Guys: I'm out of the league. Was trying to play my game with Blade3D, and he obviously is a much better player. Pretty much from the first snap. I was losing 28-0 —$in the first half —$and he went ahead and put up another TD on me. I rage quit —$I am sorry about that.

But, I don't have as much game time as I would like, and it seems the skill level in this league is way beyond me at this point. Not worth it to get my ass handed to me every week. I haven't won a game here this year (my two wins are against the CPU).

Good luck to the league, though. Glad to see it prospering. I'm just not cut out for it anymore.

Sorry you feel that way. I almost exclusively ran the ball, he gave up a fumble, 3 int for 2 pick 6s, hence that basically equated into that 28 points. The first actual drive I had I ran for a 70-80 yard TD, and that is when he rage quit midway through the 2nd quarter. I am not sure what else I was supposed to do, I am not good enough in the other league because the games I play there are like this. I feel that I might not be bad but I am definitely not near the top of the people who play around here.

Why should you be allowed to play the CPU? scrub said he's been trying to get in touch with you since Friday, and you guys couldn't work out a time. I could have allowed him to play your CPU just as easily.

Well actually we did have a scheduled time of 9 est. But he posted here at 2040 saying we couldn't come up with a time even though we had sent PMs since Sunday.

Then why didn't you come in here and say "Hey, scrub0 just cancelled on the time we had agreed to. Can I play the CPU?" Not only would that let me know what's going on, but it would have communicated the issue a little more clearly.

I got out of class at 2030 so its not like I had time to post from there to when I got home.

Plus he was online when I signed on so it didn't look like he was going to cancel our game. After he had signed off I checked the board and saw he had posted that there was miscommunication with us which in don't believe we had.



And you only use hash tags when your Chicago Bears whoop sorry ass teams week after week. We so good our defense will outscore your offense!!! Ask Dallas, St. Louis, Jacksonville, the newest member Tennessee and next weeks visitor, Houston!
