I'll be firing up the CCM this evening when I get home from work. It'll be the first thing I do with the retail Madden in my hands. As soon as we can get all of us in the franchise we'll be able to advance to the preseason. If anybody has second thoughts on who they picked, you have between now and accepting the franchise invite to change players. (Just make sure the team is available). While a lot of the general TSO rules don't really apply, keep the following in mind ... - We're not going to have any restrictions on playcalling, i.e. force you to use the game flow (which sucks IMO) or anything like that. - With that said, we're still trying to play realistic football here. So call a balanced game regardless of what position you're in. Stat whoring here is just as bad as stat whoring in an NCAA or Madden traditional league. (Not to mention balance will help open up your game). - Let me know your thoughts on the preseason. I'd like to have HvH games when possible, but they'll be a bit long and tedious in most cases. So do we want to play them? Do we let the home team play the computer? Or do we leave it up to each matchup?
