    Awesome job getting all of your games in so quickly! We didn't even need the extension, even with two new owners coming aboard! The franchise has been advanced, and week three is now open! The deadline to get your week three games played is SATURDAY 9/13/14 @ 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!


    FREE AGENCY

    Waivers are now done for this season and Free Agency is first come, first served.

    There is only ONE RESTRICTED PLAYER. WR Paul Richardson BELONGS TO THE BILLS.

    All other players are unrestricted.


    GAME DESYNCS

    Despite the supposed server side update to fix desyncs, they are still occurring. For the time being, we need to continue with our previously established Settings Policy to try to eliminate desyncs.


    MISC

    Everyone has been doing a great job scheduling in the forums, as well as broadcasting your games. Keep up the good work!

    In case you haven't seen, we now have a tool to enable us to more easily create links for MultiTwitch, to watch multiple league games at once. More info HERE.


    Good luck to everyone in Week 3!

    Guys, couple questions I have that I feel like posting here so everyone can see and not just the people in the GroupMe chat:

    1) Roughing the Passer - It's the only flag I ever see. I saw 1 in my first game, 2 in my second. Will any penalties be turned up so that we see more of them occur? (Or at least one or two other than RTP)
    2) Any more talk about quarter length? Seems like even a minute or two added would help the league stats out to be a little more realistic.

    I know you guys are still doing some testing for these settings. Will we see any changes before we get thru season 1, or will they most likely come after the first season? (If at all)

    We are addressing both of your concerns with our testing. While we want penalties to be part of the game, we also don't want to be "drinking from the fire hose" as our good friend Jim would say. What you have seen is the minimum as far as penalties go. Some guys see none. Others see as many as 4 or 5. Facemasking and roughing are at 55 and we will NOT be adjusting them any higher. We are testing clipping and holding, but will only implement a change to those if we can guarantee there won't be the hose effect. As far as game time and stats, we are currently exploring that idea. However, we need to keep in mind that the game is still new and there is still plenty of learning curve going on. I'm not so sure experience will improve our stats alone, but we prefer to err on the side of caution. Not only that, but with increased qtr length comes increased game times or acc clock. We are looking at the data for the first few weeks in conjunction with our tests and will implement an immediate change if it is warranted and will benefit the league as a whole. If any adjustments are made I would anticipate it will be after week 3 or 4.

    In my week 2 game vs Titans there must've been about 6 facemask calls. He had 3 in a row on one drive. I actually declined the last one cause I thought it was getting out of hand...

    As long as situations like that are outliers, we may have to live with them. The last thing we want to do is turn penalties down as a reaction to a rare incident like that, and end up not seeing them at all.

    Thank you for the feedback though, we do need to hear about incidences like that, if they happen.

    Also, if you're going to report penalties or any other concerns, please be specific. Approximations will not get us anywhere. This is another good reason for EVERYONE to have their Twitch settings changed to "archive" so that we may review such anomalies as needed.
