    Ok guys, I'm going to be leading this thing up to the new release and I'd like to see this league continue to operate until then. There are plenty of guys who want to play one more season at the very least and I would like to do what I can to make it happen.

    First of all we need to establish who are our reliable members. We've had plenty of new guys come in here and not be able to keep up with what I believe are very simple standards of operation. The one thing that there should be absolutely no excuse for (besides family emergencies or things of that nature) is not checking the scheduling thread the day of advances. We advance every MONDAY and THURSDAY. Very simple. Every game should have the scheduling groundwork done on the first day and no later than the second day. If one party doesn't respond by the 2nd day then the person making effort to play will be playing CPU. Also, this is not something that will be tolerated. I feel like if you fail at this once you don't belong in a legitimate league. These set of standards will allow for the league to run smoothly.

    Once again, it's very simple guys, if we all do our part the league will thrive. We also need to recruit some new blood in here so if you know of anyone who is trustworthy please send them my way. I want to feel like we have a solid core group going into the release of Madden 25.

    I will need a couple of guys to help manage the league. Preferably one from each conference. You main responsibility is keeping an eye on your conference (scheduling, games played) just so I don't always have to be the one to respond to everything. I will be available as much as I can but I would like to have some backup just in case I'm occupied. I know JSimms offered to help out in the NFC so I need an AFC guy to step up.

    Let's stop the bleeding and end on a good note before we open the packaging on the new Madden game. Please respond to this thread to acknowledge that you have read and understand what is expected of you. If you don't respond then I'm going to assume you don't want to be in a league because it's not that hard to do.

    Thanks,
    HotRod
