    Question

    Just wondering why we are playing 8 minute quarters with no accelerated clock. I think it is way too long. My game with Frisky boy today seemed like forever.

    my game with tank seemed like forever lol. It depends on the game. Sometimes i'm finished in an one hour with a couple more minutes. Others go for 1 hour and 45 minutes. I like it because it gives so much time for a game that is so lopsided to go completely the other way.

    i like the time of 8min qts, it gives you about 4 or 5 possesion's a half, i think the problem is the game has no defense so both teams are scoring alot which makes the game feel long, i thought just my defense was bad, but it looks like a league wide thing with that 61 to 54 score lol

    Ditto. It must favor a certain style of gameplay. I must have to try to adjust.

    More than a certain style of play or gameplay, i think it has to do with hothe motion of the game. Some days its automatic, other days its 14 points.

    I like the 8 minute quarters. I've never had a problem playing defense ;)

    (I'm giving up 70 now against Vishal next week after saying that)

    Well when you are scoring 90+ points combined in a game with tons of passing, there's just no way around it. . .the game is gonna be long.
