    PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST FOR IMPORTANT LEAGUE INFORMATION!!!

    The franchise has been advanced, and week 10 is now open! The deadline to get your week 10 games played is Thursday 10/2/14 @ Midnight EST.

    REMEMBER: Game recaps for any divisional games are required and must be posted by the winner in the Game Summaries & Team News forum. As always, recaps of non-divisional games are much appreciated as well!

    For those that may not have heard the news....we would like to welcome TJ (klaximilian) back as the owner of the Jets. TJ initially thought he may have to step away, due to outside obligations, but that is no longer the case and we are glad to have him back!


    POINTS OF EMPHASIS for week 10...

    • LEAGUE PARTICIPATION: We have said it many times before; we are not a league that wants owners who ONLY play their games. Getting games in is great, but our league has always been much more than that. Our league is only as good as it's owners, and we need to see that everyone is involved and invested. We want to see recaps (the required divisional recaps at a bare minimum), team write ups, league wide write ups (ex. divisional blogs, bottom feeder list, hot seat, power rankings, etc.), or whatever else tickles your fancy. At the very least we want to see owners replying to the threads for those owners that DO take the time to produce the great content we are seeing. League management has been, and will continue to be, monitoring forum activity for ALL owners and we will not hesitate to make an ownership change, if we feel it is in the best interests of the league as a whole. Nobody is exempt from needing to be an active participant, regardless of tenure, and I think we have made our expectations clear to everyone right from the start. One last thing on this topic, THANK YOU to everyone that has been going above and beyond to produce some spectacular content. Please keep up the good work!
    • (AGAIN) Schedule for the next week, even before we advance to it (preferably). Either way, try to get the game in BEFORE the final day of the advance, so that you have that extra time in case anything happens to prevent the game from being played (disconnect, desync, emergency, etc). We don't want to have to become the scheduling police, as we are all adults here, but EVERYONE must do their part.

    Good luck to everyone in Week 10!

    I took a little break from the plays of the week video. I was getting some good videos but not the volume needed to make it a weekly series so I'm gonna work on finding a different way to do it.

    Pardon me asking this again, but Roughing the Passer...what's the deal with this? Through 8 games I've seen at least 1 RTP called in every single game. And it's not even user inflicted half the time. It sucks when you make a big 3rd down stop and then a CPU player gets flagged for RTP. It really is a momentum changer. Any chance this shit gets turned down a little, or even off all together?

    How many other calls are you seeing? Holding, pass interference, offsides etc?

    Zero, nilch, nunca, nil, etc. ... Only other 1 I have ever seen is facemask, but those are mostly always user inflicted and can be avoided by using the right tackling approach.

    So no other penalties and about 1 roughing the passer a game? Not to be a douche, but 1 penalty a game seems like too few, not too many. We should be cranking penalties up.

    Would be nice to see some more penalties like holding and false starts. It would add more realism but I do know penalty sliders have a direct effect on gameplay so it's very tricky.

    I've had games where as many as 3 RTP's were called. I'm not saying we shouldn't hjave more penalties in a game, but I shouldn't be seeing ONLY RTP's called.

    Sure I understand. Still looking for the balance, I assume.

    I've only seen RTP and Facemask here. Seems at least one or two a game on both sides, though the OAK-SEA game Week 9 did not have a single penalty if I remember correctly. I hate it because we need penalties, they're a huge part of the game, but having these just to have penalties sucks because it seems so random, would be nice to know what triggers them. I honestly feel guilty accepting them, and actually had a game where I started declining them, but then got my ass burned late in the game on a key drive with a penalty myself, and of course my opponent didn't return the favor declining it (y)

    The bad part is that it seems the penalty formula EA has is nearly rocket science, and it seems your penalty settings will affect different aspects of gameplay also, so it could be tough (and a ton of testing) finding some sort of medium. In my other league I don't see these penalties, and have seen a few other ones (like clipping) so maybe when I have the chance I'll compare the two leagues and the penalty settings. I think the sliders are quite a bit different as well though so I'm not sure you'd get the same result. It would be nice to at least get a Holding call or two to kind of balance since RTP and Facemask are both defensive penalties.

    I have seen a holding call in a league game. Not ten but one.

    I've had holding calls in games, I've had offensive pass interference, I've had clipping, I've had roughing the passer...I've had games with zero penalties for each team, I've had games with 2-4 penalties for each team

    Overall I'd much prefer to see some more varied penalty types (as it does seem non user Roughing is the most frequent penalty I see) I think there aren't enough penalties actually, but thats me

    If we were able to accurately mimic the NFL's penalties...lol we'd all be pissesd....it'd be defensive holding every 1/3 play lol
