    Poll: Quarter Length

    How many minute quarters do we want to play?

    In the past, we have always gone with 6. It doesn't give a realistic # of plays but tends to give the best results in terms of other numbers. I believe somewhere between 5-8 is the magic # so those will be the only options unless someone can convince me otherwise.

    I love it when people vote and don't/can't explain their reasoning for said vote. Looks like I got a bunch of Obama supporters in the GBN this year. Just sayin' (y)

    No Obama supporter here ;)

    I like 7 or 8 minutes. I voted for 8. I hate when someone has a long possession and the next thing you now the quarter is over. Plus, it would cool if our running backs get somewhat of a realistic number for carries in a game. I think statistics as a whole will project better with 7-8 minute quarters. Just my opinion.

    Voted 7...Honestly don't have much preference. 7 minutes has always gave me pretty realistic stats

    I voted for 6.

    Why? Fuck you. That's why.

    Show some passion up in here!

    Unless you really want 7, then i'll be perfectly content to have 7 min qtrs.

    My bad. I picked eight-minute quarters, because that seems to get realistic game stats, based on past experience. If human vs. human games get to be too high-scoring (sliders may fix that), then a drop to 7-minute quarters isn't too bad.

    People voting for six-minute quarters may have an online league mindset. This is dynasty mode and we're trying to get accurate end-of-season stats for our players so they can be in the running for awards and shizzle. Playing the CPU in 6-minute quarter games will result in lower stats, based on my experience.

    Nah, I voted for 6 just because it'll save at least 20 minutes of real life time.

    I played an 8 min quarter game last night and got pretty realistic results in the # of plays and stats.

    I'm personally leaning in the 8 min vote direction myself but haven't made a final decision yet.
