    Maybe if you send PM's to everyone it will help jumpstart things. My guess is that people don't visit this forum often.

    I mean in terms of new people wanting to join the league. I'll send PM's out.

    Any rules people want to go over? I've never run a Madden league, and I never really did FA or trading, so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears.

    I never had success running a league on here. I have a very short fuse with people that don't follow/read directions and are unresponsive so it wasn't my forte.

    As for FA, I went through and raped the FA wire when I signed up. I just figured it was first come first serve like the sign ups were.

    Yeah you did you killed it.


    GG btw you definitely outplayed me we had lucky breaks both ways but I had a few more. You must've wanted to kill yourself after Kyle Wilson's second fumble.

    I saw that. I was gonna hold off but then I saw my divison rival Vikings blow shit up so I figured christ I guess I'll sign someone then. I'm just gonna get a punter and I'm gonna be fine.

    you have no idea. That was one of the most frustrating games I ever played, I was screaming like a maniac in the living room. My girlfriend got scared.

    There was like a 3 minute span where I had 3 fumbles, an INT, and you returned a kickoff for a TD. You got me good though.

    Haha yeah, it really sucks they have to be unranked.

    I was pissed off when I had that drop that would've been an easy pick 6, then when Boldin was wide open for a TD and for some reason he stopped and ran backwards, and then Ed Reed goes down.

    ..then the luck turned though haha I was laughing my ass off during that 3 minute span.


    By the way, during the fumble recovery fights did it not show you what buttons to click too?

    Yea it seems like they don't show that with online games this year for some reason. I hate the feature, so I don't mind.

    That's pretty shitty. I was the second one to sign up after Mack but I thought we had to wait until everyone got signed up.

    I thought I was the 2nd to sign up actually.

    Either way I was going to wait as well, until somebody went thru everything. Rather unfair if you ask me.

    I agree, the point wasn't that whoever signed up cleaned out free agency. I wasn't even thinking about it, and it wasn't really meant for that. I was thinking max 2 FA for teams. Hell, I was preferring we don't do it at all, but if we did an FA draft, I'd be fine with that.

    Would we have to restart the league then to put FAs back to default?

    Nah, just have people who signed anyone release them and pick up anyone they dropped.

    I'd prefer he just create a new league for us to join. I did a lot of transactions. Last year when we did the 360 league, the same thing happened but I wasn't the one who got to clean up. I figured I wouldn't make that mistake again.

    That makes sense WSW. This is just an unforunate situation of not having everything explained before signup began.

    I'm down with whatever way we do it.

    I can make a new league tomorrow.

    How about maximum 2 free agents before the season starts? I'll make a new league tomorrow. It can be first come, first serve.

    Then you can get 1 more during the season?
