    The word is that the OS Community Rosters will be released TONIGHT.... meaning that our dynasty will be set up tonight and I will be sending out invites to everyone to kick-off the preseason.

    We will be starting AA -- Normal Speed -- 50 Thresh -- until I have an idea of how good our group is and how it translates for us all using a lot of inferior teams, for the first couple of weeks of the season at least so I have some stats to analyze before making any adjustments.

    ANYONE who has concerns about not being able to keep up with our target advance schedule (48 hrs or so), or is stretched too thin between being in too many leagues... please speak up now so I can drop you. I have people who would like to get in here, and some of them unfortunately were dropped when they probably shouldn't have been.

    Please remember this is a "sim" style league... and that I will be frowning heavily on anyone who's boosting statistics or abusing AI in any way. I will post more on rules and scheduling expectation later tonight, I just wanted to get this up for everyone while I had a chance here at work. :)

    You dont necessarily have to be in 3 dynasties boys quality over quantity. Lets stay active and make this dynasty one to contend with. should be interesting to see where we all end up with the carousel format.

    Still waiting.... the set was not released as expected.

    Sorry for the delay. Please try to keep in mind that the game has only been out for a week still. ;)

    That is fine, this is a marathon not a sprint.

    I guess I was mis-informed because only the PS3 project has been completed so far.

    So, I'm thinking that if nothing is ready for X360 by around midnight EST tonight, that I will go ahead and use one of the roster's that are available to us (likely the same set being used in Uunderclassmen) to go ahead and set-up and send out invites to everyone so we can get moving. I know that will probably mean that as soon as I send out invites, I'll see an update on OS the next day saying that the xb360 roster is complete.. lol :)

    They said theyre not messing with player ratings this year except for transfers so the underclassmen's roster wouldnt be too much different would it?

    OK, the drama surrounding the XBOX 360 roster project has left it in limbo right now... (some guy dropped out of the project due to illness, no communication, so whatever.)

    So, the dynasty has been created and the first round of invites went out late last night, using the roster I did have.

    However, Mcwoods06 you either are on the wrong system or aren't on XBL because I can't send you an invite or even a friend request... so I must drop you.

    D.Earl you seemed confused by my friend request.... are you still with us?

    9 people in so far, and you already have your preseason tasks done. That's great.

    I have a couple replacements who are getting invites right now.

    I have to do schedules still, but that will also be completed soon.

    I got your request... you listed your GT wrong so I was trying that one.

    Anyways, I will shoot you an OD invite shortly.

    before EA had NCAA's approval for the use of the college teams, uniforms, etc. they had a NCAA football game and used the city of all the teams with something close to the team name. It was like The South Bend Irish and Tallahassee Indians etc.

    Ok, gentlemen. We're just waiting for Mcwoods06 and lere2001 to join and complete their preseason task(s).

    Mcwoods06 will join and do his stuff tomorrow a.m.

    Week 1 will finally be up tomorrow evening, no later than 8:00pm EST.

    Rules will be updated and posted under the Dynasty Overview thread along with our updated roster (either very late tonight or tomorrow prior to advancing to week 1). I will tag everyone and request a reply there to confirm everyone has read and agree to abide them.

    Thank you again, everyone, for your patience during this process. I hope everyone has at least had an opportunity to get familiar with the game in the meant time. (y)

    I think that not having authentic teams will kill the franchise, All Pro Football 2k8 couldn't survive against Madden 08 which was one of the worst Maddens ever.

    Will we be doing team previews and write ups? If so, that is something we could be doing while waiting for Week 1

    This would be cool.

    I appreciate wanting to do this, but I know several of you are in multiple leagues like myself so you may be pressed for time.

    Please feel free to start a thread for these if you would like to write one.

    My activity level here will pick up a lot more after July 31st and I'll be far more constructive as far as trying to get some league content.
