    TMFL

    In the last 24 hours we have lost PAgamer07, Timpegoose and sonn.

    I'm getting to the point where I want to start evaluating people for inclusion in the league for Madden 25. I'm hoping the existing membership will help recruit to fill the open spots we have.

    Those spots are (I believe):
    • Denver
    • Minnesota
    • San Diego
    • Miami
    • San Francisco
    Frankly, I haven't been having success filling spots. Either you guys get it done or this league is going to slowly die a death by thousand cuts. At this point, I'm not above just shuttering the doors of the league for the year.

    If we can't get 32 solid people here, then I don't know what the point of a 32 person CCM is. I'm surprised at the turnover. I will help best I can.

    I don't get what the issue is , it seems to me that most of the NCAA leagues have been shut down a long ass time ago , so where are all these sports gamers ? SMH


    I will try to help as much as I can Shaun , this should be the best thing going but with the turnover we have taken on some members that are not very active on the boards. The members like myself that ain't going anywhere should step up a bit here and try to help find suitors for these spots.

    I will try to help fill spots. I'm just frustrated with the drops.

    I have a few ideas Shaun, ill send out a few texts and see what some guys are up too.

    I dont get it NCAA has long ago died for the most part, this game is fun to play...anyway I figure we still have plenty of good guys still here that want to play and we should be able to come up with a few more to fill the league out, and for sure if they possibly want to play here in Madden 25.

    Seems the last of the seasonals are jumping ship. I'll also help any way I can. If I can suggest, I'd like to add that maybe we can add a different approach to the CCM as we move towards the end of the M13 cycle. For example, SIM the first half of the seasons (8 games) from here on out to focus on the playoff push and offseason management stuff, like building a good team. This could give weary members time to do other things away from madden while keeping things fresh a interesting come playoff time. I think that the playoff grind would definitely add interst in the fact that a few user teams, that would otherwise not be in the hunt, will actually want to play it out knowing they might have a shot at making the postseason. It has usually been the same teams in the playoffs and that might be the piont of discouragement.

    I don't know, like I said its just a suggestion. But I know I definitely don't want you to kill it based on lack of interst. Filling spots is tough nowadays with spring break coming warm weather events and things make Madden a tough call for some. Those that are dedicated, myself included, find time even with a crazy work schedule so a added twist on the TMFL could be what can get us back to 32 users.

    So, per recent PM's, BRUCE80 will be moving to his favorite team (Rams) and TSO OG (and really, really good player) HotRod will be taking over the Carolina Panthers. We are also in talks to bring IrishBearcat on as a team to be named later.

    Sent him a PM, letting him know about spots but not trying to get anybody to jump ship, just looking for more quality guys who want to play madden.

    Yes. I have been very interested. My only concern and Shaun Mason knows this, has been my schedule and the 48 hour advances. Some of you guys know that I am a firefighter and work 24 hour shifts. With the quantity of user games, I'm worried that would create scheduling conflicts. I'm willing to try it out if you guys are.

    IrishBearcat PM'd me he prefers the Dolphins, so I think that leaves either the Chargers or the Donkeys.
