Should we rename this league the insomnia league for next season? Maybe I'll give those midnight sleep aids a try and see how that works. Or just give it another little while. Just so many stressors in my life right now but it should be getting better after this week is over.

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

Madden 13 SB Champ in the CAG gentleman's league.

Definitely.

I actually kind of like the way this situation has resolved. The people who had problems before have left and everyone else it still here. I think this league will be alright.

For anyone who cares, I've spent this week watching my 15 month old daughter meet, be afraid of, and eventually play with and hug her 90 year old great grandparents. I'll tell you, life doesn't get much better than that...and it has a way of making you forget about "regular life". But if Madden is the best thing you've got going for you right now and a few days was worth starting a war over, I don't know what to say.


Not going to lie, this kind of touched me. I am glad to hear that your vacation is going well.

Wow, surprised by how this thread went last night. While I tend to agree with what doc
and blade were saying (that we wouldn't wait for anybody else and the "I'm calling it a season" bit), it was hardly worth leaving the league over. Nate, enjoy your vaca and we'll get back to league business on Friday! Specifically, the contract issue Troy and I both seem to be thinking of (Troy I'ma let you explain it so that I know we're both on the same thought lol)

Much better topic of discussion today. If we can keep up the talk of our various medications and ailments, maybe changing the league name to "Grumpy Old Men League" next year will be a good idea, haha.

Also, Dark Rider, I did see your post about clearing my PM's. I don't think I can do that from the CAG mobile site. Not sure if I can get the full version to load on my phone or not.

Nope, the original Galaxy S...aka Epic 4G. Starting to feel like it's on its last legs though. It's been freezing up on me and randomly rebooting a lot lately. It also heats up to like a million degrees when I'm using data. But I was able to load the full site and clear a few messages. Back on the mobile site now though because it's way faster.

Ahh ok I was gonna say I use an app called Tapatalk which is available for apple and android! It's specifically for forum sites like cag and it is Amazing! Very easy to read and use plus PM is available and obviously I can chat in the forums. It automatically loads the last read message so you don't have to scroll back through! Very user friendly and like a buck or two.

It is like nobody read the rule change before getting angry about it lol. I think people are overreacting a little to much to this rule change. It isn't nearly as bad as people seem to think it is. Also keep in mind that it is only in effect outside the tackle box and in the secondary. You can still lower your shoulder if you want to truck someone. Per Jeff Fisher:

"The new rule prohibits ball carriers and defensive players from initiating contact in the open field with the crown of the helmet. The crown, as explained by Rams coach Jeff Fisher, is the top of the helmet. The facemask and hairline of the helmet may still be used to initiate contact.

Fisher emphasized that ball carriers will be permitted to protect themselves, by dropping their pads and dipping their helmets. A foul arises only if the top of the helmet is used to ram the opponent.

In that way, the new rule is an extension of the rule against spearing, which in NFL parlance means hitting a player who is on the ground with the crown (top) of the helmet.

Also, the blow with the top of the helmet must be “forcible,” a know-it-when-you-see-it standard that could potentially cause reasonable minds to differ. As a result, the decision will be treated as a judgment call, not subject to replay review."

trust me i read it. but i see it as more of a start and every year they will keep adding to it and people will either react like i do or people will just be like its only a minor tweak really and before we know RBs arent even useful anymore in the nfl.

i also think of 3rd and 1 on the goaline with RBs running in head first and all of a sudden its a 15 yard penalty and no TD

If its between the tackles then it doesnt matter what they do, which is where they run a 3rd and 1 on the goalline with a runningback going head first. So this play would be unaffected.

No big deal. It's not huge. I just had a suggestion for something.

I highly recommend the iPhone. I know it's cool to hate on, but it really works well. I am still rocking my iPhone 4 from a few years ago. Still runs great.

That stuff never worked for me, even at high doses. The only sleep aid that worked for me was Klonopin. But now, the Cymbalta I take for depression puts me right to sleep, even though it has a stimulative effect on most people who take it.

I swear to god, I have stared at that app countless times wondering if it was any good or not. Thanks!

Trazodone doest work for me either. Klonopin works but not as a sleep aid on me either lol.. I didnt know ppl use that as a sleep aid. I had it prescribed for use in social situations.

I hate when I play an unranked game and get stuck having to actually play it so I can save a replay of something. Though I do like running fg blitzes the whole game lol

I guess I'm blessed with the ability to fall asleep any time I want, but on the rare night I'm unable to, just a couple of Tylenol PMs work for me.

i started at 50mgs and it stopped working so i just kept taking more they said if i get to the point of 500mg to call to get different pills. i have to take it becuz my heads constantly rushing with thoughts and its the only thing that really turns it off long enough to help me sleep. i also have to take it with pills that help stop body motions in my sleep and dream blocker pills. sleep studies suck big time by the way if someone has had one im sure they know its hard to sleep during one of thoughs things. tons of fucking wires every where. shoulder legs arms chest back head face

Tanaboe gets the first shot at the niners as he is 1st on the waiting list and it has been assumed you would take the Rams from the beginning. I do not think a team swap at this point would be needed.

Also I can't sleep lately. This blows.



i wanted to bring this up again since it didnt get much attention the first time i brought it up...when i first joined the forum hoping to get a team in this league that billymcdugal recomended me for the only open team was the rams. but since i havent been invited yet or assigned a team would i not be entitled to the first choice of team since technically i am the first on the waiting list still? i understand that it has been assumed that i would pick the rams seeing how it was the only open team until last night another team opened up....and since i havent gotten an invite to the league yet that makes it seem like im still first on the waiting list and tanaboe is second...i would like your guys opinion on the subject...please and thank you

I'd say, if you havent picked a team, you're still considered on the waiting list and can get whatever team is open.

i think keeping in mind that tiger didn't pick a team, but picked the only team that was open, should allow him to change which team he takes over, especially considering he hasn't been able to join the league yet. It would be different if he had been on board since the other 2 owners joined and then had issues because the 49ers are now open.

Did n8 even approve Tanabeo joining? IIRC, there were some issues with some of his play styles last year when he was in this league.

I think, knowing the sort of player Nate wants to bring in, Tanabeo's tendency to do anything not explicitly stated in the rules (QB hot swap, huge 7-year contracts) would not be the sort of thing Nate would have any patience for.
