I say we aim for Monday September 3. Unless there are extenuating circumstances and a large sect of the members don't have the game by then.


I won't be back in town until the 5th or 6th. I hate to claim executive privilege, but I think that's extenuating enough. :D

Ultimately it'll be up to yourself, uber and siradam...but I'm sure either of them would handle league business admirably in your absence as they've done before. You could always play your game on the 5th or 6th, upon your return.

Price to trade him? I can't imagine there's any way I'd do that unless I was getting a really great QB back. Probably not even then. He basically is that offense until I build it up a bit.

No doubt they're more than capable, but the plan all along has been to wait about two weeks (which is what we've done in the past based on when the roster comes out) before we start. That's part of the reason I scheduled the vacation when I did. I know everyone is rearing to go (so am I) but we're going to be playing this game for the better part of the next year, waiting a few extra days isn't going to kill us.

There's been some talk of a kickoff tournament after the game comes out to help get people in the swing of things while we wait for the roster update. Hopefully that will hold people over.

Nothing I can do about that. He's signed for a few years, so hopefully he's my QB for at least the first portion of the franchise. It'll certainly be something that's in the forefront of my mind when trading/drafting though.

I agree. And we dont know if everything will be working correct. Didn't we end up starting in late Sept last season because the online roster didn't receive a day 1 update?

I would say the week of Sept 10 should work.

Well it's not a vote, but I am pleased to hear I'm not the only one who schedules my vacations around Madden. ;)

We started September 15th last year, so more than two weeks after release. I've been saying all along that it will likely be something in that range again, so any earlier will be a bonus.

Indeed. You will all get at least a week's head start on me as well.

I'm serious about doing a pre-season tournament as well, though obviously someone else will have to organize it.

I had it last year and Im debating about it last year it allows you to download the full game this Friday and have full functionality up until release day of game, You also get to download Fifa 2013, Tiger Woods 14, and NHL. early when the time comes. I play Fifa also so I might get the Season Ticket. As far as for the packs for ultimate team Im not sure if they are available right away or not.

Hmmm, I think I am going to pass for $25. Not that big into MUT, and the only other game I would play would be FIFA.

Ya it was beating me on all-madden when I was playing with the redskins. Not so much when I was playing with the 49ers or Giants though.

i having a hardass time doing user catch with my wideouts this year and on defense when i switch to a DB they slow down and get burnt by the wideout or when i go to catch the ball nothing. i have only one user INT and one user catch with my wide out and last year user catch with a wide out was my go to thing. but it seems once i switch to my wide out and run to the ball that he goes all crazy and no where close to where i want him to go

Nobody will know until the game is out. It's not like EA is going to admit injuries were excessive last year.

looks like the jags owner needs to shut his mouth before he runs that team to the ground completely. looks like mjd wants to be traded and would be very open to the idea of being traded
maybe the falcons will trade turner for mjd :) lol

places i could really see him going though
bengals
steelers
broncos
cardinals
saints
lions

these teams all need actual RBs
and i think if the lions get him well i think sprice can give u the answer to how well that works out

http://www.nfl.com/n..._headline_stack

im think mjd will sit out until he has to come back he is stubborn
