...and that's why we didn't let you blow up your team.


And this is the holier than thou attitude, along with the other comments that will follow, that makes for a high school atmosphere and makes the new folks want to quit...

I'm going to have to have fsecreast back on this one, don't let him pull that crap. Fsecreast should be playing the CPU now.

And agreed with pitfall, this league specifically said don't pull that crap, sign up one and done. Just like the BS you posted "hopefully I'll be back in a season or two" in the other league, I hope you get blacklisted at this point. You seem like a nice guy and all, but thats just obnoxious to pull this. There is no high school anything in this league. My guess is most of us are all young professionals at this point, and we just want to play football. If you can't handle the smack talk just do as you said and leave. We don't need people waivering on the fence about playing, we have enough people interested as it is.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Also, packers vs lions just took place. Lions 28, Packers 0.

My defense finally came together after putting in some work on it. Suh forced a fumble, Bill Bentley had a pick six and a few other interceptions. On special teams ran back a punt.

Offensively I tried to keep everything on the up and up (not trying to run up the score, passing, etc). Matt Stafford was 3/5 for 41 yards and TD. Kevin Smith had 23 attempts going for 129 yards and a TD.

Good game Steggy.

It's just too much for me at this time. I thought I could handle the time commitment but with work, kids, wife, and other commitments something has to drop. If you want to blacklist me that's up to you guys. If honestly doesn't matter to me. As you get older and have a family etc you learn that sometimes you need to cut things that are fun but take too much time out of your other commitments. That is what this has become and I have to just notice it and respectfully back out. If that can't be accepted and you want to blacklist, contact a mod, that's up to you guys. Even though this is just a few games a week it's just too much with everything I have going on. I also thought this would be fun as a person who has played madden since it came out when I was in college but as a casual player it just is not fun at all. I don't have time to practice, scheme, etc. Hell i dont even have tine to scout. I just have time to play. With that commitment level this will never be fun for me. The other things were small reasons, that is the main reason and for that I am out. If you don't understand now, trust me one day you will. If you have kids and can juggle all of this then congrats, I surely can't.

I'm sorry guys but I'm out. This is turning into more of a high school league than a gentlemen's league. Too much finger pointing, overbalanced stress for me. I appreciate being added to the league but would like to respectfully retire. This truly has become more of a hassle and a grind than the enjoyable, gentlemanly, fantasy football like experience that I was expecting. Thanks again and good luck to everyone else the rest of the season.


What? I haven't even seen much arguing in the last few pages. Here's the thing, it's a competitive league. People are going to get riled up from time to time, opinions are going to differ, etc. None of it means that we hate each other or that we can't reasonably co-exist. If a little debate or testosterone jockeying really upsets you and causes that much personal turmoil, then you're not cut out for sports.

I've argued with almost every single person in this league about something at one point or another. But I respect all of them, and hope that our mutual interest in football can allow us to peaceably co-exist. To me, this seems like a pretty flimsy excuse. If you don't have time for the league, that's fine. But your last post was complaining about the difference in skill...and then you don't bother to play a game against the CPU. In my opinion, you've pretty well established yourself on CAG as a flake...and I would advise any league to think twice before accepting yourself as a member in the future. But yeah...we're the ones acting like high schoolers...

LOL...and you tell pitfallharry he's acting "holier than thou". Wow...it's a good thing none of the rest of us have any of those personal commitments. How would we ever get anything done? Whatever, man. It's really nothing to get upset about for either side. No one's forcing anybody to play. But I do believe that people who prove to be unreliable shouldn't be shocked if others regard them as such in the future. Just as you have to "do your thing", we have to as well. The league would never get off the ground if everyone behaved like that.

I understand. Starting a new family makes gaming hard. You think you can commit, and eventually something has to break. I am in the same boat as you, but am trying to hang in there by strictly playing and no scouting, practice, etc.

So Cowboys being auto'ed? I offered to stay up late tonight to play him(even tho I have to wake up at 6am for work) and the best I could get was that he would "most likely" be on at 11PM. I don't think I can work with that considering I'm not even sure his router is going to work since he already dropped two games.

Don't you two know each other? I'm just baffled by the tension in this exchange. This feels like one of LV and Widow's fights, lol.

But yeah, I'll switch him to auto pilot since the issue seems to be on his end.

Yes we do know each other which is why I don't get why you're automatically believing the BS he is spewing. My router messed up and kicked me offline. Its never done that before and you are going to switch me over to autopilot?


Seriously? Does that make sense to you? People have different work schedules and I am available every night usually after work so its not like I'm always unavailable.

The CAGLeagueSports account was created as a shared account so multiple users could contribute to league business (this was way before Wiki posts were created). I've been running leagues since 2007, and it made it a lot easier to operate them under an official banner, to separate league business from my own personal involvements.

Oy-fucking-vey, lol. :wall: The REASON I would be inclined to "believe his BS" is because YOU KNOW EACH OTHER. Why in the hell would somebody lie about someone they know and see on a regular basis? Does that make sense to you? Regardless, you can still play the game while on auto pilot. Just show up and play it. Having you on auto pilot just gives him an option in case your router craps out again. Seriously, people. Life isn't this hard.

I just wanted to let you know how it would affect your future standing with CAG leagues. If you don't care, that's your business. You've bailed on 3 leagues in 4 months. It is what it is. But good luck with your future endeavors. Obviously, there are more important things than video games. But the people in this league (and any league really) made a commitment to each other that this is something we want to invest our free time in. Like I said, that's the only way it could ever work.

Lol I wasn't BSing about anything. I did try to accommodate him during his available times and his router crapped out. It sucks staying up until midnight when you have to work in the morning and have it all be for nothing because his router sucks.

Either way, we're going to try again tonight because I'm that nice of a friend. But if we still have problems after tonight I'm going to his house and personally smashing his router into pieces(Office Space style).

The Rams barely won their first game with Kurt Warner at the helm. I think I had an average of 1 yard per carry and I ran it somewhere around 15-20 times. Thanks SJax! Bradford was a bit better in limited action, but it was really my defense that allowed me to put up any points at all. Strip sack for a TD and then a bobbled punt return, which set me up for a short TD. Those were my highlights. GG again, stepano Z.


Good game man. I couldn't believe McKnight muffed that punt. I thought I was gonna get blown out after that first quarter, but turned out to be a good game. I really scrubbed my last possession going for the tie/win... think trading to get Schaub was a horrible idea now. I'm doing worse with him than I did with Sanchez
