    PS3 people, feel free to make your own.

    Some people have expressed interest in a Madden franchise on XBox. This rarely gets past the first season, but I'm always willing to try it and hope for the best.

    People need to be committed to play their games in a timely fashion though.

    I'll start signups. And if you guys would rather do a fantasy draft or random teams or something, let me know. I figure we'll just do first come first serve though.

    NYJATW - prefer Jets but prolly wouldn't get them so I'll take GB

    questions:

    How does the offseason work?

    Yes you can.

    I'll also play. If we are calling teams I guess since the Jets are gone I'll play with Cincinnati.

    I think we should all sign up before we pick teams, and maybe eliminate top 5 or something.

    Also before we sign up we all should agree on no cheese dick players/going for it on 4th down in unreasonable situations/onside kicks/exploiting..

    I think I'm just going to do first-come, first-serve for teams. Easiest way to do it.

    Just no obvious cheeser moves. I don't mind if people go for it on 4th down sometimes, just not on every one. Onsides kicks in the 1st half are bush, too.

    It's not a bad idea but I like Mack's idea better. Also, all that rule stuff is obvious. I'm thinking the same as the PS3 thread except maybe 5 instead of 7 minute quarters. That really doesn't matter though.
    Let's say you're up by 7 and there is a minute left and you have the ball 1st and 10 and the opposing player has no TO's... Can you run the ball to run the clock out or will people bitch if you don't just kneel?
    If the Giants win the SB this year you automatically get the Jets next year :wink:

    Also, how does free agency work? I heard there is no cap and how do you similate it? Does it really take 30 days or whatever for us to get thru that?

    You can run the ball to clock out if you want to be that stupid and risk a fumble.

    I don't want any hard and fast rules about cheesing or different things. If anyone does something during a game that the other person doesn't like, either post it here or PM me, and if that person keeps doing sketchy things, maybe I'll kick him out.

    I really hope we can get a 2nd season in, that is the fun part.

    With the draft/FA stuff.

    Since this looks like it's going to be a league with normal rosters, I'd still really like to do one with a fantasy draft. I started one last year and got about 8 people interested but it was during Christmas/Jets playoff run so it got postponed and people kind of forgot about it.

    I'll probably wait a little while to start it or someone else can, I'd like to use teams in the same divisions so we can play each other.

    I don't want this thread to turn into a discussion about another league, but just putting it out there that I'd like to get both kinds going eventually.

    I'd love a fantasy draft, but it's rare we get more than 5 people that actually care past week 3 of the season, so I don't think it'll really be possible. If enough people are interested, I"d be cool with that.
