i feel every user who chooses to leavr the league regardless of y gives up there team.... its not right for certain people who are vets that last a season and a half have rights to a team that they chose to leave. we went far as shit last season with so many people and those who stuck it out should recieve there previous team. i dont see how neone can see this not being a fair statement... if people who quit after a season or 2 continue to regain there team the momentum we left 12 with is useless... statics dvo gpninja bseti lv widow were all good additions that were active in the thread ez to reach and played there games. if theg dont get a team and are kinda kicked later on when season 3 comes around they may lose interest in our league knowing they would be kicked for 14.... if u leave the league u rejoin as a available team or hit the waitinglist thats about as fair as it gets

Every past champion should have one of the lowest rated teams on the game.

CAGFL: (187-31)

BV mentioned this last year as a joke, but it's something that does make sense.

Maybe give past champs first crack at the top 5 worst teams and then worry about everyone else.

No one is saying they do, certainly not me. I think I've been pretty clear that I don't think anyone should have dibs on any team before we start the team selection process.

i wasnt pinpointing at u i was just stating my opinion... i thought u did a hell of a job keeping the league going... i like that people have certain teams just if u leave then u get only an available team

I'm up for whatever. There is a certain amount of fun that comes with trying to build a winner, but starting with a stronger team wouldn't be bad either.

The commish team has a tough road ahead of them. No one wants a crappy team, not everyone wants to have the same team...point is - someone will be pissed. Either way you guys go, I'll support the decision. Seattle has some bad ass uniforms anyway :P

I don't think we have an issue with competitive balance, personally. I can't remember a bunch of complaints about the "better" players in the league having the best teams. Either we do it the way we've been doing it, with veteran preference to teams or finalize the 32 users and randomize an order for selecting teams.

Like staticz said, there is no way to make everyone happy, but the randomizer would at least make it equally fair.

we did a draft of teams in the 2nd league in M11 if I remember right and it went pretty well

Look, there's no easy way to ask this so I'm just gonna do it...

Does anyone want to be gay lovers with me in Fable 3?

That is correct, but it was a sort-of spinoff league, not the main thing.

Yes fantasy drafts are gone.

Importing the draft class from NCAA football is gone.

Editing player abilities is gone.

Custom Playbook use in connected careers is not allowed.

And apparently you're only allowed one connected career.

CAGFL: (187-31)

You've obviously read up on this way more than I have.. Is it possible that Madden leagues as we knew them are dead? Or will we be able to create at least a reasonable facsimile of what we had before.

They still haven't released info on how they're going to incorporate the EA website, but from what I've read on forums, many seem to believe a massive overhaul is in the works. XFN may not even be necessary.

Online franchise details are being released very slowly.

Everything below will be included in both online and offline franchise from the start. I don't think it will take away from what we had before.


32 users - human or CPU controlled
Users control an individual player or team (as a coach)
Salary Cap w/ Free Agency
Real Player Contracts
Rookie Scouting and Rookie Draft with traded draft picks
Get Fired or released from your team
Play up to 30 Seasons
Practice with your team
Player progressions from game to game, season to season (using xp you earn from weekly and season long milestones)
Stories generated each week based on what's happening in the league including trades
Faux tweets from in-game Twitter accounts from sports reporters Adam Schefter, Rich Eisen, and Skip Bayless.
Website/Cell phone App integration



The Madden demo is rumored to release on August 7th.

Top 10 QBs announced

Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers) - 99 overall
Tom Brady (New England Patriots) - 98 overall
Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints) - 98 overall
Eli Manning (New York Giants) - 97 overall
Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh Steelers) - 95 overall
Peyton Manning (Denver Broncos) - 93 overall
Philip Rivers (San Diego Chargers) - 92 overall
Matthew Stafford (Detroid Lions) - 91 overall
Tony Romo (Dallas Cowboys) - 90 overall
Michael Vick (Philadelphia Eagles) - 89 overall

Q&A on some of the new features. This actually answers a lot of questions.



Commissioners will have the power to limit whether it's a coach's or player's franchise. A coach's franchise is what we've always been doing, but now with all the additional features.

Commissioners will have the power to set player progression(every four weeks, weekly or end of season)

Commissioners will have the power to turn salary cap on or off as well as the use of accelerated clock (which I think we should use because you can also set the minimum playclock time)

Coach firing can be toggled on or off.

XP upgrades CANNOT be purchased. Grinding like an actual RPG will determine how much XP you're given. If you put in the work, you will be rewarded.

I heard someone who is pretty knowledgeable about Madden say that they'll let us have multiple connected careers....I dunno where he read it, but that would be gay as sh@#%@#%z if we can only do one!!!

Edit: After a few seconds of googling, I found this http://mymaddenpad.c...start-or-be-in/

So I think we're good for multiple Connected Careers...I know that thing was posted a month and a half ago, but I doubt they'd decide to go from unlimited Connected Careers to forcing you to limit yourself to just ONE.
