Okay, look, folks, I realize that Madden 11 isn't exactly a rolling, wonderful continuation of Madden 10. Having to play on All-Madden sucks. Having disconnects out the yin-yang sucks. Injuries suck right now. And top that with, on our end, a new cap system that has a few hiccups but is mostly solid. I am not a "board member", in the direct parlance. I help you guys out wherever I can with whatever I can, but I have no official title. This message is to all of you board members that do: Either participate in this area, and give feedback/ideas to better the league, or step down. NOW. It's week THIRTEEN already. We have NO offseason plan in place to let owners know specifically how things will go this offseason. At a 4 day advance (minimum), we are looking at 16 days till the end of the season, and say another week or two for playoffs. Folks, that FOUR WEEKS AWAY. RIDICULOUS. I have tried to spur some discussion about cap stuff, and get a whole lot of "meh". If you don't like the cap system, then SAY SO. I have a full box of Kleenex that I can use for myself. If you don't have an opinion on what I say about the cap, then I'll just start posting in the general area instead of in here. It is honestly a waste of my time to come in here and ask for feedback from LEADERSHIP in this league and get very little, if any, feedback. I'll just start doing it myself since, judging by the amount of posts/views, most of you don't care. To those that ARE responding and trying, thank you. I, for one, appreciate the effort. For those of you shirking duties that you signed on for (not just feedback), look in the mirror, figure out if you want to do this anymore, and say so. One way or the other. I'm not a "rah-rah" guy. I'm usually mellow and roll with the punches. But apparently all of you need a kick in the metaphorical ass, and I am gonna give it. Whether or not I am qualified or respected enough to do so. 1. Why does Gaddy not have a recap of his week 12 win? I realize that he partly simmed the game (I apparently quit late 3rd quarter, told him to go ahead and save the data), but winners are supposed to post summaries. Also, the summaries in general seem to be getting less quality of late. I don't expect a full blown news article, but more than "GG dude, was a beast, Player X went off during 3rd quarter, didn't expect to win.". It should be a summary of the game, which means I hear about the scoring (when and who) and final score (in the summary and thread title). 3-4 sentences. That isn't asking much, I don't think. 2. Game scheduling - to me, is being done well. The only thing I would suggest is to make sure the people starting game time threads post their full availability for the week. It has always been a pet peeve of mine to see the start of a game thread with "Dude, I can play Monday night between 3-8 pm EST. When can you?" Should be a full day-by-day setup with times to play. If you don't know your time you will be available, post that so the other person KNOWS. Say "not sure what my time will be on Xday". 3. Free agents - again, we are doing well in this regard. Just need to make sure that we are very on point when offseason FA starts. Whoever is over FA should be ready for a cavalcade, along with cap guys. For those that have worked in retail ever, offseason is like the day after Thanksgiving. Get ready, it will be hell, but worth it IF WE PLAN WELL. 4. Let's get our leadership in order. Get this shit settled, situated, and finalized. Get the leadership in place so we can move forward. If Dunlap isn't AFC president anymore, get the candidate replacing him in place, get the responsibilities in order, and move on. We LEAD, and how we function as a group affects the league. If we are lackluster in getting shit done, the league feeds off that. We need to be proactive at ALL times. That is part of being the leadership of the league. Nate, I apologize for speaking out of place. But this HAS to be said. WE START NOW. Get shit in gear and get stuff rolling smoothly for this league, or leave and we will replace you with someone who will do what we need done. Make your choices.
