    Ya or Nay?

    I am for it. It gives owners additional flexibility. I know Tennessee is a yes, lol.

    I like it for a newer guy like myself who missed out on the first season, to catch up personalizing my team.

    Then I'd have to approve 50 titans trades every season, plus update all the spreadsheet stuff :)

    I'll be the voice of negativity here. the constant concern is of course that a new owner comes in, vaporizes his team, goes 2-14, and quits, then we cant get anyone to take that team. Understandably a bigger concern in a full league, but we are more than 2.3rds full and I expect our new owners to boost that even more.

    This is not a criticizim of any particular owner, but often it appreas that some guys jsut want to trade for the fun of trading. it adds work for Keller or I or Rush, whomever is having to fix the back end. your average NFL team makes LESS than 1 trade a year. follows the Week 6 deadline. and overvalues draft picks. I like 2.

    I would argue the less than 1 trade a year number. There were a flurry of trades this last draft season. The reason for less trades at times is the fluidity of free agency. But in most of these Franchises, the big name players don't go out on the free market as much as they do in real football. It is difficult to compare trades to real life when the other aspects of the offseason and personnel moves also do not reflect real life.

    Of course just my opinion here, but this past season is a major anomoly with it being an Uncapped year. Perhaps I should have said historically the average NFL team makes less than one trade a year and overvalues Draft picks.
    I totally agree with the difficulty in comparing Madden to the NFL, its a weak comparison but one we constantly make in the interest of "Sim". If we were able to play unlimited seasons, where the choices we make were able to be played out, I'd be more inclined to have a free-er hand. Or if guys were all premier members. Then there is at least a little financial incentive to see your excessive team rebuilds through.

    Again, its just this guys opinion, if the majority vote moves us up to 3 trades and I see 3 trades that will improve my team i will make all 3 :)

    I am okay with 3 as long as we don't go overboard after 3. I think 3 could be in the right slot, however, we may need to look into the possibility of like Seachicken said that before someone can make trades if they come in during the season that we have a waiting period before they are allowed to make trades to avoid someone coming in and blowing up a team. I will agree to three but no more than that.

    How can a team be blown up when we have a trade approval crew to make sure all trades are fair.

    Just because a trade is fair, for example if Brady and Suh were rated the same. Tom brady for Ndamakung Suh, that doesnt mean that it doesnt intrinsically change a team for an incoming owner. Think back to when Madden identified particular players as team "Icons" Thats why at times you will see the TC reject trades that appear to match point for point, however there is a point where we cant just reject trades because we feel it modifies an original team too much. Additionally the trading of draft picks can really set a team back. Depending on cap and age.

    Ok I can understand that.

    So does do the CPU use any type of method when they cut players for room for draft picks like cut the 7 lowest rated players or is it random.

    I voted yes, but at the start of Madden 12, I wouldn't mind seeing it back to 2. This being our 3rd year, we are away from the original season enough to let more changes happen.

    Closing this - Its pretty clear.

    We may go back to 2 trades for Madden 12 but for now, 3 trades.
