    If we do a Madden companion league ...

    ... I think we should call it "The Dad Life - Sunday Edition"

    What do you guys think?

    Also, let's start getting interest and team choices. If we decide to move forward, (and I'm not saying we will) I'll ask for a sub-forum to be put in, and we'll run it as the step-child of this league, which means at no point will anything involved in it (even the Super Bowl) be allowed to be more important than a week of NCAA.

    I've been a Browns fan for quite a while, but I'll let Goose play them if he wants. I got my Bucks, so it just seems fair. I'm thinking Bears, Eagles, Chargers, probably in that order. But if Goose wants to go another way, it's my Browns and a stellar 3-13 season.

    Not sure if I am going to buy madden before thanksgiving. I usually play NCAA until then, and buy it on the black friday deals, so with that said, I doubt I would be in that league right away.

    So the feeling I'm getting is that there's no need to discuss it right before the release. Let's shelve the idea for now and revisit it a bit later. If it catches on, it catches on.

    I am staying pretty busy just with this league. I don't know if I could commit to a similar time commitment on top of NCAA. On the plus side I am loving this league. Very fun so thank to all you guys and the effort you put forth.

    Why not save the draft classes anyway and start the madden league in December?

    so i bit the bullet and bought madden 11 from amazon today. i get the $20 pre-order credit towards another video game purchase.

    but like i said earlier, i would prefer not to start the league until the patch comes out (at the earliest).

    so tell me a bit about it before i get it. definitely willing if its secondary and with you guys and subsumed into this league/thread pages. but...again, what about draft classes? how do you deal with lack of trade logics, contracts, etc?

    and ill take the falcons if im in. and then ill immediately bring vick back to glory. eat my balls.

    you know carolinaeasy, since your a good guy (unlike hokienuts) I will take my hometown team instead of my favorite team....so give me the Chicago Bears.

    Joke of the day: Do you know what Cutler means in French? Grossman

    It is okay man, I don't want to do that. I am fine with the Panthers. They actually fit my playing style better than the Steelers anyway.

    I haven't picked up the game, but I can do so whenever a few guys want to start something up.
