I'll be using my acquisitions as trading barter. So if anyone needs a Sub-Par HB and WR in exchange for a 85+ WR let me know.

Hey, don't look at me. I'll play now, if you want.

Ignorance of the law isn't an excuse in most cases, but the only issue I recall being mentioned was the trading and playing of the games, so I assumed that once we actually got the ball rolling all wa

Played my first game. Right off the bat, Palmer was throwing all over me, and I assumed I was screwed. But I tinkered with the defense and we started putting pressure on him, and he struggled the rest of the game. Expected a close one, but we managed to win 27-10. Bengals down, Browns are next. I'm really being tested here at the start of the season.

Texans raped me in the 1st quarter.

Shut out all but a few running attempts. Managed to get a touchdown each in the 2nd and 3rd quarter while holding them down at 21. They pulled one out their ass in the 3rd made it 27-21 and I couldn't get back in the game.

Great game, but would have liked to win. Funny thing is there were no turnovers on downs or forced :crying:

Okay, Hugar you're invited. Any chance you can get your game done tonight? If so, we'll kick off week 2 tonight, as Jase hasn't been on the board for over a week and he's the only one keeping us waiting at this point.

Just noticed the league news thing has updated, apparently HoodedMandarin has quit?

Also, Captain Eo/Pharaoh Steve has utterly taken the piss and signed seemingly every free agent rated 80+. Cheers for that.

You guys have got to be kidding me.

A raid on Free Agency would entail getting Free Agents someone would actually want. I don't see James [84] and Marvin Harrison as huge gains for any team.

If someone had wanted them they wouldn't have been free agents right?

Except I think most people didn't even bother to look into that due to the fact that the Free Agent system for Online Franchises is highly flawed at this time and if one so happens to pick someone up they can at anytime without any bidding and so forth. And to pick up every player like that and to specifically state you did it to trade them is being about as big a cock as one can be. Considering the majority of us, can't speak for all, were probably never going to sign anyone unless we had an injury to a player and needed to replace them.

I mean, it's the same concept of not trading with a computer team seeing as they don't turn down trades. So it's sort of the same thing. I probably would have at least asked Dragsy previously about signing a player off of FA in case he had an idea of how to do it fairly, ie. PMing him bids of interested teams, and so forth. However, if I choose to stay in the league (may get rid of Madden) I'll probably never do any sort of trade or interaction with your team in the slightest just for being a knob.

Played my game which was a 10 point win for me. Even though I got a scare as I was running out the clock for the win and Wells coughed up the ball giving the 49ers one last chance. But thanks to another pick by my secondary I won.

Please don't play any games yet. also, I had forgotten about the free agency issue. I think if we avoid it till the end of the first year, then I'll come up with a waiver system or something. If you really want to make a move, I'd appreciate you running it by me first.

Actually, Harrison would've been a nice pick up for Chicago, and Edge would be a solid back-up for most teams. And if they're not worthwhile, then why did you pick them up? My problem with it is that there's no opportunity for anyone else to pick them up, there's no bidding war or anything, it's first come, first served, which is why I wanted to leave it till I could come up with a countermeasure. That, and you picked up like 5 guys at once.

I didn't know there even was a Free Agency bug, I was pretty sure it was first come first serve, but I would also assume that there were parameters in set that kept teams from going over roster cap and etc.

I'll apologize for not doublechecking first as that could easily been taken as me trying to take advantage of the system, but with only 3 guys over 70s in there I just figured some of you had already picked up some other players and these were just bottom of the barel guys.

But all in all if the attitude of this franchise is going to be like the one I quoted I rather just drop out now and move onto another franchise. I signed up because I wanted to finally get to interact with some of the EWBites since I was without a 360 for over a year and I missed out on the Saints Row 2, and Left For Dead bashes you guys have had. I love this community, but it wouldn't be fun playing in a franchise where some people are purposely going to hold grudges and blackball trade offers and etc.

I'm not going to do anything, because as far as I can see, well, I can't. Short of kicking you out of the league anyway, and I feel that's too severe. Admittedly, there wasn't anything in the first post, but I'll rectify that shortly. If LL's right, you'll possibly run into cap trouble, so there's your punishment >_> and possible burnt bridges with other teams.

I guess we're always going to run into a few hiccups getting kicked off, hopefully we can straighten this out and the rest of the seasonw ill progress relatively flawlessly.

EDIT: I've agreed with LL, if you want a free agent, PM one of us, if no one else makes the same re

Ugh, every time I try to edit a post, it gets cut up.

Regarding free agency, if you want a player, PM either me or LL, and if there's no other interest by the time the next game week rolls over, you're free to take him. You get one request a week unless there's a desperate injury replacement required.

Regarding game timing, I want us to keep up with the NFL. Obviously we have a headstart over week 1, but what I'll be doing is advancing the week on a Tuesday morning. If we all finish up early, we'll roll over earlier. Any problems with getting a game in, PM or post in here.
