    I'm going to have to stake my claim for the Raiders this year. Probably be my last CFM.

    What is this shit? Ya'lls arthritis getting to bad to handle the sticks anymore? :cool:

    Man feels like an entire cycle since I left but Im def interested for M18

    1. Texans
    2. Chiefs
    3. Bengals

    I'd love to see the bonus % rule go away but I know that is kind of dependent on how Madden handles contracts. I felt it was much more realistic last year so if they take another step forward in that Id love to see the rule be amended to fit the new system. Dont really care how we do playbooks but I have always liked limiting PBs to no more then 2 users.

    And we finally got draft boards!! Think that was a big factor in me losing interest so early last cycle. I missed the first 2-3 drafts which are easily the most important ones in the cycle.

    Most of the news that has come out so far has been very promising imo. Still a little weary of how the new frostbite system will play but Im optimistic.

    Between that kids and hopefully back to coaching kids football again

    That's something we can look at since many seemed to struggle with the math every release. I know they've said contract related stuff is not changing.

    Another idea is flexing the 48 hour advances to a two advances per week schedule .. Thoughts / Concerns?

    Mandatory bonuses will likely go away as long as Madden didn't regress with contract progress hskr8128

    Another fun fact: TMFL and TSO will be moving all site comm for leagues to Discord, so dust off the app if you have it!

    Also get used to using beam/mixer its really easy compared to twitch. Like ridiculously easy!

    Im torn on a two time per week advance. On one hand, Im getting older and busier myself so Id prefer slower advances tbh. But I also like getting deeper into the cycle and making GM skills count more. Is sim seasons something we would ever consider?

    I definitely like the idea of slower advances. 48 hours was getting overwhelming. Maybe 72 hours instead of twice a week? Never thought I would say that, but when you have to play a game every other day it wears on you. But fewer seasons also take some away from team building. Also agree with hskr8128 about the bonus rule, it was needed in previous cycles but was kind of antiquated in M17. Alot of new games coming in September but I'm willing to give it a shot. Would actually like to do a cycle with Carolina with the rookies they have coming in.

    I like the idea of slower advances, but am down for either way.

    Honestly 48 hour advances are easier season 1 and maybe even 2, then slow it down. Or always try for 48 and if people need extension allow it

    In theory I'd like that idea but then we will have those issues of people always dragging butt on replying & scheduling etc. We need to set an advance expectation and hold to it. If we go early great if not stick to the plan.

    I like the 72 hour idea especially since it may increase probability of getting games in vs west coast hippies

    If we go 72 hours no more "if I'm up" scheduling from you :) We're gonna set a time and compete!!! And then you're gonna barbecue for the league when we meet in San Diego for a beach TMFL cookout.
