    Apparently there were a shitload of games not completed in Week Four, so we're going to give a one-day extension and advance early tomorrow morning.

    So if you haven't your game, get it in.

    Ghost - you around this evening? I'm good from around 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Eastern.

    Dislike...this is lame. 96 hours aren't enough? I don't get it. Sim those games and lets keep this moving. Nothing kills a league faster than dragging weeks out. My 2 cents.

    I had suggested a sim since i thought the advance would be su day night or mon morning. He can play cpu if he likes i just needed to be on ap.

    Just got in, I will not be able to play unless it's late like around 11:15 and so on because I have running and conditioning at 7:30 then work from 9-11.

    This is stupid, IMO. I remember when there was some chatter of changing the advance schedule, and I was told the rules are all set in stone.

    Well, if that's the case, those rules need to be respected.

    If a guy can't figure out how to schedule a game or at least TALK to an owner within 4 days, then that's a problem. It shouldn't be that hard and frankly to see all the games that haven't been played for like the 2nd straight week, to me, is a lack of respect for everyone in the league.

    But, that's just my take. Carry on...

    Me and kidofcrash tried to hook up before the weekend but wasn't able to. I had company in this weekend and I believe he left on Sunday out of town for work....so we decided a SIm was probably the best option for us..​

    Mid-terms have killed my free time as I was studying all weekend for them and when I wasn't I was at the UNC football game. I told Simms to play the CPU Saturday night but I wasn't sure how to set myself on AP from the CPU so I just set myself to ready.

    I understand being commish is a thankless job, so I'm not trying to be critical. But in the future, just advance. We have at minimum a 72 hour window to play each week and we are scheduling a few days ahead. If the deadline comes and there are games not played, too god damn bad. If some type of extenuating circumstance exists (EA server issue for example) comes to light, you guys should know ahead of time and should have time to make an exception. Again, not trying to nit pick, but I think keeping things moving is the best course. Maybe a few sims will kick some of the slackers in the ass and motivate them to get their shit scheduled in a timely fashion.

    Confirming this. We were communicating through the schedule thread, so our dialogue can be seen in there to show we tried to schedule. It just didnt work out.

    BlyGilmore - this is correct. Hark had asked me to play the CPU, but did not set himself to auto so that I could do so. I wasn't too thrilled about playing the CPU in the first place, so decided to take a sim instead of hunting Hark (or Ryno) down to get him set to auto so that I could.

    Personally, I think that the speed (or lackthereof) has really put a damper on the excitement I (and others I have talked to) have for this league. I think we have a great core of owners to build upon, but I'm looking for a league that moves a bit quicker than this (for example, 3 games/week) if I'm only going to play in one league this year. Playing only once every 3, sometimes 4 days - It's hard to really get into it. I know that the advance schedule was set when I signed up, so I must admit that I was the one that made a mistake signing up for a league that doesn't meet my weekly Madden fix! I'll leave next steps up to the commishes - if you have someone else begging to get into the league that might have more fun / be more committed than I have been thus far, then no hard feelings if I get the boot...
