    It is with great sorrow, brothers, that I bring this news. GDip, is sadly having to drop Rookie Symposium. He is moving to China for a new job offer, and unfortunately won't be able to get on XBL over there. It is a sad day for Madden CFM's everywhere, and I would like to say a few words in his memory.

    GDip was our league mate, he was our co-commissioner, but most of all, he was our friend. Let us take this time, to mourn and reflect on the memories he has left with us. He leaves a legacy of great sportsmanship, fair play, and great activity. He personifies everything I want this league to be, and I couldn't ask for a better owner. His commitment was second to none, and he held nothing dearer to his heart, than this league. He has made Rookie Symposium better, just for being part of it. He was part of the foundation that built this great league to what is today, and his contributions to RS can not be overstated.

    Remove your hats and pay your respects gentlemen, possibly one of the best to ever do it, is riding off into the sunset. He was an unproven head coach, he was NCAA commissioner, he was an NFL owner. There will always be a place for you here GDip, no matter how many day's, season's, and cycle's pass. There will always be room for one more.

    Owners, in 20 years, when your children look up and ask you, " Where were you when GDip retired?" You can look at them with teary eyes and say, "I was there son... I was there."

    Great stuff RRAHx2 and everyone else who posted. I'm upset that I finally got the Broncos in this league and didn't really get to do anything with them. Would have had a shot at a great team for another couple years with Manning, Welker, Thomas, Decker, Miller etc...

    Not sure who to blame here, China or Microsoft. MS could enable XBL in China if they wanted to, but with the level of Piracy in the country they just don't want to.

    I'll hope to talk to some people here cuz I know people have been on XBL from here just have to get it figured out. So maybe in a few weeks, if there's an opening, I would love to hop back in the league.

    Take care guys and enjoy M25!

    What about if you joined one of TSO's PS3 leagues? Would keep you involved and then maybe join us back asap?

    not a bad idea, but I don't have a ps3 and not gonna buy one just to play in a madden league. I'll be fine for now, some of the other people I work with say they know someone who has an xbox I just need to track him down. Apparently he isn't peoples favorite to hang out with though, so nobody wants to contact him for me haha.
    Hopefully I'll get it figured out soon enough.
