Yeah but I didn't drop them back every single time. and when you started no-huddling I didn't even touch my d line or anything, I stopped dropping everyone back when you started running every time.

And another thing I realized is when the offense audible out of a running formation to a 5 wide and putting WR at TE isn't right either and in madden you can't audible the defense as fast as the offense can and I get caught out of position every play. Don't mind it because doo mane was giving me a good game I didn't mind

It would be better for you if you didn't understand that. Since you claim you do understand it, you're basically admitting you know the rule and chose to ignore it.

We have specific rules against both QB Hot Swapping and against continually scrambling on 5-wide. These have been rules all season, and last season as well.

What I find so unbelievable is that you'd so flagrantly flaunt what everyone in this league knows are rules mere hours after you narrowly avoided a strike. That makes me think you believe that this shit doesn't have consequences and that nobody cares if you continue to play this way. Well, you're wrong.

You've got a strike. Moreover, you are on thin ice as far as this league is concerned. If you can't fundamentally change the way you approach being a part of this community, you're going to find yourself in the position of trying to find a new one. See if I'm kidding.

I don't care how many people want to come out of the woodwork to defend your crap, won't make one lick of difference. I am so over putting up with it, and I know fero feels the same way (uber obviously does as well). Happy fun time of getting away with this bullshit is over. Enough is enough. Clean your act the Fuck up, or take it somewhere else.

Why don't you try to be the good guy instead? Honestly. There are plenty of players in this league who manage to be both dominant and also never run afoul of the rules. There's also no maximum on the number of good guys we're allowed to have. 32 would be the ideal number.

Learn from sprice. He kills people all the time and yet you rarely see his opponents having a problem with the way he played.

BV we use to play in the same divison a couple years back and i never done anything outlandish so honestly y would i start now?


You tell me.

This isn't like it's out of the blue. This is 3 of your last 4 games where you've had some kind of issue. It's not a conspiracy, multiple people in the league have raised a variety of issues with the way you've been playing, both inside of the rules and outside. If this were the first time your playstyle had been a problem, I wouldn't be giving you a strike, but given the accumulation of it and that nothing else has worked I really don't see that there's another choice. I hope the strike does the trick, I honestly do.

Ultimately we can't force you to examine the way you've been approaching this league and make you change. That's up to you. But I really hope you do, because the way it's been going isn't going to fly.

look at the issues honestly bv coming out of the huddle to fast? throwing the ball too much when i only threw it 15 times when running over 25 plus times. and i admit i was wrong for not sending a message saying tyrod was in. ask people who play me all the time how i play like cru, beseti, sprice, doom, even the new brown owner since i played him a couple of times

and out of alot of games i have played in this league i only had 3 complaints never been a big problem getting my games in and all

I've looked at the issues honestly, so have fero and uber. We all agree. Hell, uber wanted us to give you a strike for your game against him, but fero and I both said no. We're all in agreement on this one.

If you don't think the specific things from the Giants game are worthy of a strike, you're free to consider it a "wake up call" strike. It's been more than 3 complaints over the seasons, those are just the 3 most recent ones. Like I said, it's been a steady accumulation of things.

The good thing is you never have to get another strike, and if so this one won't mean anything. It doesn't taint your championships or keep you from winning more. All it does is let you know that we're serious about people being mindful of the way they play.

Winning at all costs can't be everything in this league. There are leagues where it is I'm sure, but this isn't one of them. So not doing things like knowingly flaunting the rules to gain a slight advantage (even if you think it's a minor rule like QB hot swapping, they're all there for a reason) or easing up on an opponent who tells you "I'm whipped" is really something that you should consider going forward.

Like I said in my post earlier about the uber situation, even if you weren't getting a strike for that you should really think hard about what happened and what it said about how important winning is to you. You don't have to bleed clock against everyone every time you get a lead, but if your opponent tells you they concede, there's no harm at all in letting them down graciously and let the clock run. Even if the rules don't say you have to. It might not be the most fun way to end a game, but you still get the win and they get to leave with some dignity. Just something to think about.

You need a streaming card, but I have no idea how they work or how much they cost. Staticz is the only one doing it now, so I'd ask him. Zurezo used to do it as well.

Besides this instance with doo mane, all the issues with mog have been about running up the score. Serious issue but pretty simple fix, just stop scoring. Go out of ur way to not score when ur up big late. Ya gotta know when to ease up. It will be a shame if u get kicked for running up the score uve been in this league too long thatd just be a waste.

My opinion on the doo mane situation is i hate when people drop 11 into coverage. Cheese. But the rule is u gotta send the messege if ur gonna change qb's. But why even go 5 wide just run the ball n throw outta bigger sets. Another silly reason to get a strike but ya bringin it on yaself dude

Ur as committed a member as there is in this league mog dont go gettin kicked over some dumb shit dude

ur right bseti but my intension was to throw the ball out of 5 wide and with me being down by 17 at one point i had to throw, but with a 11 man/zone coverage i just pulled it down because he was using the MLB and zoning the middle so i just ran i wasnt cheesing

i agree i was wrong for not sending the message i agree with that

Gotta do what u gotta do i guess. If it was in the 3rd i still wulda ran the ball or at least had a rb on the field to keep him honest. Gotta play the percentages i'll take a chunk of yards on the ground over thowing against 11 in coverage until i absolutely have to throw the ball. Jus me tho...

yea thats true, and when I played to my d the te pop pass came into effect and if it was the te streak it was the AP streak which is the samething as the te, and i noticed a lot of people is now running that play lol

thats true but being down by 17 im now going against the clock and i really couldnt stop his offense. doing a drive like that would of ate up the clock and i wanted to speed the game up to force mistakes on his end and to give me more possessions. my game plan was working some what because it was a high scoring game and at one time got within 10 but then we disconnected

I think this depends on what came first? The 5-wide set (which is nearly impossible to stop even with 8 in coverage) or the 11-man/zone defense.

Mog or anyone else - Here is the card I use It comes with everything you need, including software and cables. Works on Mac or PC (I've done it with both) and you just have to setup an account on twitch.tv. I didn't stream last night's game because no one commented on watching it and it really knocks down the quality of footage I can upload to Youtube. If you aren't interested in doing that it will work really well for streaming.

When I have live streamed the games the I didn't notice any gameplay lag.

I suppose that is true, but 11? No matter, it has been addressed.

I watched a bit of your stream when you had it up, but then the quality took a nose dive after a few minutes (I like the highlight videos mroe than the stream personally).
There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.
