Sorry, I was busy yesterday, and lazy when I wasn't busy. I messaged him on XBL on Tuesday. I have just now messaged him on CAG. I am around most of the afternoon, so hopefully we can work something out!


Please keep us updated! I'm scheduling my game for tonight as Chetty is out of town.

I vote for 2 strikes. That's ridiculous.


I agree that a strike alone seems insufficient. How about this:

Hey guy is it ok for ramesu to sub for me I will be out of town from march 1-9th going on a road trip !!!


Request denied
. Ramesu is too much better than you are (as the records indicate) for this to be a reasonable sub. If you can find someone at a more comparable level to sub for you, fine, but otherwise you'll just have to miss those games. We were leaning this way anyway, but the crap from last night made it a very easy decision.

Looks like he hasn't been on CAG in a couple of days, so hopefully he gets on and you guys can find a time.

Hey guys, I know it's a meaningless award, but I've once again put us forward for the Cheapy award for the best non-deal thread on CAG. I truly do think this (along with the Gentlemen's League) are the best community on this site. We've been nominated the last two years but lost in the final voting, hopefully this year we can get over the hump.

If you have a moment at some point, feel free to drop by the nomination thread and put a word in:

Highlights soon. I don't understand this game. I have 3 of the top 10 CBs in this league and Bucs players run right past them or get positioning every time. Charles has a 99 carry and fucking fumbles once a game.

Freeman gets crushed and throws a perfect bomb for a TD, so stupid. Pretty much what I expected though.


Haha my life against the hem bros

Just heard back from Tanabeo! He gets home around 6p EST, so I offered 6:15 or 6:30. Hopefully it will go down around then.

Thanks. Look for us to advance around 7:30 or so then, go ahead and start setting up those Week 12 games.

Uber and I were just talking about this earlier. This is purely anecdotal, but in my experience high carry is much more effective in guarding against strips than it is against hit stick induced fumbles. I have Charles with 99 carry in the fantasy league, and he'll never get stripped but if gets lit up he'll still fumble. McFadden does the same thing, and he also has high carry.

I know it's instinct to try to milk every last yard, but recently I've been trying to cover the ball more when I see the big hit coming rather than trying to juke or spin. Plus, the sideline is always your friend. That Charles fumble in the highlights actually looked like bad luck that it didn't bounce out of bounds instead.

I always keep an eye on my RB's stamina too. If my feature back is in the yellow, he is sitting. It helps that he has 99 speed, and as I mentioned to BV I tend to get dragged down versus getting lit up because he is typically able to turn those corners. So between those two things and a 90+ carry, I've been lucky so far. The consistency rating probably helps somewhat here as well.

I sit him quite a bit as well. The fumble thing is annoying and I think it is a result of the physics engine. Charles is small so he should fumble once in awhile, I was more irritated because it totally changed the game.

Also, BV I totally feel you on your loss to me. I basically torched the Bucs defense for the first half and drove 80ish yards to score on both of my drives. What does he do....scores on one play after both drives. After that Charles fumbled and I was pretty much done, I knew I wasn't going to be able to keep up with him once he got ahead.

yeh in that fumble i think stamina played a big part. If they are really tired witch im guessing he was with how much he was running and a big hit happens i have found they will fumble it a lot more then normal.

He wasn't. Charles isn't in the game if he is in the yellow.

Strength is def better against hit sticks than carry, or a combination of both

Fumbling is so random...don't even bother trying to comprehend it. I can't tell you how many times my Special Teams ace Thomas Davis (95 hit power / Big Hitter trait) completely lays out the 60-70 carry kick returner and I'm pretty sure he has absolutely ZERO FF to show for it...

And Ray Lewis hit-sticks Philip Rivers on a scramble in the fantasy league and he holds onto it (I can't imagine his carry is high considering he couldn't even hold onto the ball on a QB kneel to ice the game a year back!). But then he gets strip-sacked by Carlos Dunlap...who I don't believe is high on hit power or strength, although strip-sacks is probably a whole different beast altogether.

Not sure where Tanabeo is. I will let you guys know when we start. Sorry for the delay.

Edit: He just got on Madden, should be starting momentarily.

Edit 2: Done. We can advance!

He said March 1-9 in his original post, so he may still be around. Not sure though.
