    After playing Madden 12 the last week and trying to convince myself that I enjoy the franchise feature, I couldn't help but think of all of the franchise features that we once had that have been removed. There is certainly a trend of giving us features and taking them away only to return them under new marketing terms. What are some of your favorite features of Madden franchise that are no longer with us?

    Some that come to mind would be:

    1. Tony Bruno
    2. Weekly newspapers
    3. Morale

    What am I missing?

    I don't remember what version it was but there was a weekly recap from around the league. Sort of sportscenteresque with I even think highlights.

    Yeah, that was cool. Not well executed, but I figured they would build on it.

    I guess the reason I brought this up is because franchise seems so empty in between games. I miss some.of the old attempts.

    I agree. The league news is a joke. The presentation and graphics are top notch. But outside of the games themselves the universe isn't very immersive.

    Not at all... and I find the menu to be irritating. At least NCAA gives you some perspective of the rest of the nation.

    I just realized formation subs are not in the game anymore...

    And what happened to fight for the fumble?
