    Alright fellas. This will look prettier in a few. But I'll be trying to get the admin off the ground for this lil Madden league and organize the other thread here.

    My vote is everyone start buying and getting the game asap. Hopefully, if everyone is down, we can start next weekend or the week after. There is no rush and there will be very little (unless for some reason we just get amped about it) in way of detail. This will definitely be remaining secondary to NCAA all the time. But should still be a ton of fun, so let's get going.

    Please post if you wish to change or update your team above as well as whether you have the game yet (or post when you get it). Also post any ideas, opinions, and thoughts on the league settings, etc. Let's keep everything in this thread for the short-term (maybe always)

    Arch is the commish. Just trying to take a lil off his plate.

    Peace
    Heath

    P.S. 9 of 10 of us have showed at least interest and responded. Justasample, you're up. Otherwise, pretty cool that 9 are interested. Let us know.

    P.P.S. eat my balls

    I'm leaning towards the NFC North. Green Bay. Maybe Chicago.

    Or I might look at the AFC West. San Diego is a team I always kinda liked.

    It's hard to choose when my Browns are taken.

    I also like Indy a lot, but I don't want to take a powerhouse.

    decisions, decisions.

    Oh, and congrats to Bulldog for dropping the word "taint" for what I believe is the first time in these forums.

    Way to go, brother. (y)

    Fellas,

    I gotta tell you, as psyched as I am to do Madden, it will be thanksgiving before I get a copy. With a new baby and very busy time of year at work, I will put all my effort to keep this train rolling, but I cant commit. Douche bag, yes please

    It would be no big deal to add you later. No reason to over commit.

    ^^^agreed.

    and arch, i think you should be chicago. i have no idea how you could possibly play with jay cutler, but that would allow me to be the lions and have a good ole time being sucky teams battling it out!

    I'll play Chicago, but King Douche is going on the trading block on day one.

    Does anyone have the game yet? I've downloaded the demo, but haven't played it. I've seen some not so positive reviews from people that play both NCAA 2011 and Madden 2011.

    I heard that it was not much different than last year's game. I didn't buy last year's game, so it'll still be new to me. Still, lots of disappointment over the lack of new material.

    Haven't heard anything about game play yet.

    I didnt buy last years either, so what I've read may not be an issue. Its been a few years since we've bought Madden as my oldest is not much of a pro football fan.

    I think it will be fun as the whole team management will be interesting compared to a college team.

    I think it will be fun to go through a playoff and draft/free agent kind of thing - kind of a best of both worlds. We'll have to come up with a way to approve trades and such, since there is always a way to work the CPU into bad deals. I wonder how we would handle that kind of thing?

    I would imagine we could learn a lot from the Madden leagues here on TF. It will also take some playing the game and getting a feel for it to determine what rules need to be put in place.

    with regards to all the team admin crap, i def know nothing. havent bought madden in a few years and i hear:
    -no transferring downloaded draft classes into online dynasties
    -absolutely no trade logic for online dynasties (meaning you can deal whoever)
    -no contracts...free agents are just point and click or something

    anyone know madden well? if so, speak up!

    I wouldn't be much help either on all the admin stuff. While I've played it quite a bit, I've never been in an online league with Madden. It's always been NCAA for the OD's and I just stuck to basic online play and with Madden.

    I say we just give it a run and all learn from it!

    I am having trouble keeping up with this Dynasty. I might get it down the road. But you are right playing with everyone in this league, well other than you, is fun :p
