    I think you finish. Sounds to me like he quit plus he needed to make up 14 in 4 mins with you in his territory. You know I looked at the playoff owners and though who would be the one to give us trouble and as you can guess....it was him.

    IMO he quit. Sucks if that is what he did to not lose. I am in favor of no restart. Interested to see what Nate thinks about this.

    I think the most fair thing to do, which is sort of unfair for Cade, is to straight sim it, which I am so NOT in favor of doing in a playoff game.

    i believe the rule states if i want to finish i can...even falcons owner pointed it out


    14 - Disconnections
    If the same person disconnects twice, the other person should continue versus the the CPU. If a Disconnect happens in the 2nd half then the person who was up can decide between a restart or have his oppenent set to CPU. If the winning team is the reason for the disconnect then it should ALWAYS be a restarted or if a disconnect happens in the first half of a game the game should be restarted. If neither person has the time on that day to play another game the game should be rescheduled if possible and if not there will be a straight sim



    if it was a 7 point game his ball..id replay it...but i have controll of the game...

    So can you still finish or is it a restart? If you are still logged in then finish. If not, then either replay or straight sim. Either way, if you are not logged in to finish, you still could get screwed Cade. It's not fair but it's true.

    Ok guys,

    I think Cade needs to take a page out of what happened with Gaddy and my playoff game. This sounds like the exact same thing happened. Gaddy was up and he was booted in the 2nd quarter during our first game. It ALSO showed him 'logging out' of PSN like he had turned off the system. My first reaction here is that Wajo probably got booted in the same way. Although he has had issues in the past, quitting games isn't one of them.

    After our thing happened I offered Gaddy to play the CPU. He was up 21-0 at that point and I figured it would only be fair. But because there was so much time left in the game, he decided that we could just replay it. His reasoning was we are friends and playing the game straight is more important than the outcome.

    What was the result of that....I came back in the 2nd game and outscored him 21-10 (I gave him a freebie score right up front to give him a lead atleast in the new game). He lost, but it was a great game and the game is something we'll talk about as friends for a long time. Way better than just playing CPU or simming it.

    So, my response here is that he likely got booted by the poor EA servers. Take a page out of Gaddy's book and replay it. Sportsmanship here is more important than the final score.

    Its up to you Cade, but again in my opinion sportsmanship is the way to go....even if it is a little 'unfair'.

    i understand where your coming from dunlap...gaddy did a good thing...but i believe our stiuations are totally different...but yet similiar too...if it was the 1st 2nd 3rd qtrs.. i would restart and play him straight up ive done it alot...i never accused him of quiting we had a respectful conv. about this..

    No in Gaddy's situation he could NOT have played the CPU. In fact I could have been an ass and just called for a straight restart instead of spotting him a lead. I chose the most sportsmanlike route.

    That said, it is definately withing your rights to just play the CPU as the rule states.

    Just remember that you may someday be on the other side of the coin, and you have also has lag issues that other people have been more than willing to work with you on when they could have chosen other 'routes'. . . . . .

    Cade,

    Like I said it's definately your right to choose here and nobody is going to fault you if you just play the CPU. Not saying that.

    However, please don't take the attitude of 'it's the playoffs'. . .that's not what this league is about. Atleast I don't think it is.
