    Guys, I just want to address the league and share some words on how we will proceed until the next title release. I plan on running this league in it's current format for the entire summer and straight into M25. If my day counting is correct, we can squeeze 3, MAYBE 4 more seasons out before the next game drops. That includes a week or 2 off to cool down before we start 25. This would be ideal.

    I am aware however, that Summer is approaching. With the nice weather and football being out of season, there tends to be a lot of people dropping Madden this time of year. If you look around the site, ALL the leagues are losing members. However, I am not going anywhere and will commish this thing till the wheels fall off. Ideally, I would like to stay at or above 24 users to keep 1 CPU team in each division. We do have a fast advance pace in this league, but really 1 hour of Madden is not that much. I am married with 2 young children, a full-time job, play in an inter-mural sports league, hit the gym regularly, and commish this league, yet I can still find the time to play my games. So if I can find the time, you can too I'm sure. Of course we all take vacations, and need to be away from the XBOX for a couple of days, so that is what AP is for. If you plan and schedule with your opponents in a timely, it is VERY EASY to get your game played every week.

    So I am looking to see who is in this league for the long haul. I need to know who will be dedicated to this league till the end. I am asking this because I do not want to spend my precious time chasing guys down to schedule games, and post summaries, and shit. We are all adults and I am no one's baby sitter. If you are going to just go M.I.A. on the league, just drop out now and give me the respect of telling me straight up. Don't just stop getting on the forums and quit being active.

    Now for those of you who are dedicated, and solid owners in this league. As I said, I will promise you that I will stay here till the end. I love football, and the chess match involved. I love competing in this league and love the guys in it. So I am not going anywhere. So to those of you who are staying, I am asking a favor. Please stay active and diligent in your scheduling and summaries. Participate in the chat room and stay active in the forums. We have the playoffs coming up, then the funnest time of the year, the off-season. Now that my co-commish is gone, I am looking for a replacement.

    I need 3-4 guys who can help with the following tasks:
    • Scheduling, and posting scheduling threads with the match-ups every advance
    • Summaries and make sure teams are posting them
    • Waiver Wire
    • Off-Season Tasks: Keeping track of FA signings and Draft picks
    Anyone who is interested let me know via PM.
    Also, I need you all to help with recruiting. As I said,m I just would be happy staying above 24, but more is always better. We need quality guys in here who play good football, and are dedicated. There are guys who have already brought great owners into the league like, Craig Brown, AwaLL, mmorgan184, so I thank you guys.
    Please respond to this thread so I know you have read it. Thanks again guys, and am excited to continue the league with you all! RS is a blast!

    I can track the scheduling and game summaries if you give me the admin for the Maddendaddy site so I can update it whenever we advance. It'll be easier for me to quickly access who needs to post summaries and who needs to schedule with who.

    You should focus on developing Rancour, guy has Superstar potential and we have about 3 seasons left probably. He is just a less accurate version of Matt Ryan right now.

    I'll be up front...I can't tell you until late tomorrow night. A couple of weeks ago I joined an independent softball team. We won't get our schedule until after the preseason tournament championship tomorrow night but there has been rumors of 4 games a week due to us having 16 teams this year when we've previously only had around 8. If that's true all I'm going to be is a scheduling burden and I'll feel obligated to drop.

    I plan on sticking around.

    Back in December I was in four CCs (including this one)... this is the only one I stuck with because it's still fun, it's run well, it moves fast enough to keep me interested, and I get to run with my favorite team. :)

    So yeah, I've slacked on summaries this year and I don't get on Skype, but I've managed my team every bit of the way and I'd like to not only stay through the life cycle of this year's game.. but I'm already looking forward to being here again for M25.

    Glad madden 25 will most likely have fatigue, that will fix a lot of flaws in this game imo
