    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?

    We aren't waiting for the final team rosters?

    Personally, I'd rather not play all the preseason games... however, since my player (Russell Wilson) is not the starter in the current game roster I will need those games to be the starter by week 1...

    we could use one more. look over the drafted rookies from 2012, pick one that hasn't been picked yet or isn't on a team already picked from and we'll invite you.

    If your interested in Morris Claiborne, and it is okay with BlyGilmore you may have him. With school starting back up, work, being a full time boyfriend ;) and my commitment to a gamebattles ladder team I see it being difficult keeping up. Sorry for such a late notice, it kills me to do this. I just dont see myself having the time to work out a time with other user games, etc. Sorry BlyGilmore, hope you understand!

    Doug Martin rulesz:) Too bad Blount is still listed at an 89 over, which is weird because in my copy he's an 82.

    so i'm putting a stake in the ground. we're advancing to week one Friday evening when I get home from work (or earlier if we can get everybody in the franchise). if you haven't joined yet please do so quickly. the only person who hasn't been invited yet is Snoz.
