    Brog' and I will be kicking off somewhere between 4:30-5:15 ET. I'm going to mess around with my HD recorder and see if I can get this one on tape.

    Probably means we're all going to have the issue.

    This is what having a monopoly gets you. Any small company that released this product in a competitive environment would go bankrupt. But since EA is as big as it is, and has removed all the competition, it can get away with it. The only real losers are us. Why should EA work hard to release a decent product? It's not like the money is going to change one way or the other if they do or don't, so they don't.

    College Football is a study in the downside of capitalism. Same thing you see with Wal-Mart and Home Depot. Less competition = worse product for the same price, and eventually the price goes up. Note the things we now have to pay for that were once free. In another year or so, online dynasties will be pay-to-play monthly subscriptions.

    What a load of crap.

    I couldn't agree more. It's difficult to argue about the the lack of competition and its affect on this game's quality. I would have never imagined having this many bugs and errors. You can't blame consumers for being disappointed.

    To add the the bullsh-t, we seem to have the "Bowl Game kickoff bug" in the Rose Bowl. Probably goin' to have to boot us out and invite us back in to get it working.

    Then we have some time to get the other stuff right. If you got a "transfer failed" message, it looks like you're game will be thrown out and simmed when we advance. Even if the score show up, it will still be deleted.

    So, I am going to throw out results for every person who got this message. Your job will be to sim the game and let me know if you got the right result.

    I'll be doing this with my own game as well.

    I'm going to make Ego commish so he can throw out my game results. Can't throw out my own.

    Shoot me a text when you get around to it, OK?

    Right, but I never received any kind of error message at all. I'd be interested to see what happens is you try to let mine stand.

    Not going to throw out your results - only those who reported the bug.

    You're fine. I'll be up when you're done. Just shoot me a message or a text - your choice.
