    We have finally advanced to Week 5 in the OLD FILE.

    First and foremost. I want to apologize to everyone for being so distant lately. As I have told Dakota in Gators in conversations I've had with them, I have had some major changes in my life the last few weeks that have really sapped me of any interest in outside activities.

    That being said, I'm back in the saddle now. With that, expect less of a democracy moving forward. If I've learned anything over the last month in here its that I can't let decisions be made by the majority without things spiraling out of control. I will try to listen to everyone's opinions but at the end of the day it's going to come down to what I think is best for the dynasty. If you don't like that, now is your chance to leave.

    Now for the stuff you care about:

    1) Assuming no new game-related issues, we will be continuing with this file at the regular pace starting NOW. At this point, everyone is aware of what works and what doesn't in this game, we are just going to have to accept what we have and move forward.

    2) jello1717 I've been going back and forth on this, but I think you need to make a decision. I would love for you to download the patch and rejoin us, but I know you don't want to do that. I don't see anything on the horizon regarding fixes to the current issues, and my worry is that your going to be taking up a spot that could go to someone else right now who is willing to deal with the problems. By the time we realize that a fix isn't coming this game's cycle could be over.

    3) Let's get content posting geared back up again. Get to know your recruits again, post them, discuss them.

    4) If you aren't comfortable with whats going on, now is your chance to leave. Please let me know sooner than later if you plan to take your game and go home.

    Don't do it yet. Just in case we continue to have issues with the original file.

    Me and dakota7 were able to get through the entire game. I used Arky's default PB, no custom. It's about damn time. I would love to try a league game though with my CPB to see if the servers are truly fixed or if it was just because of the CPB's.

    I absolutely respect this and don't really blame you either. I made a decision a while ago and my decision has never changed. I won't download patch 2 and will only download a (potential) patch 3 after I read satisfactory impressions from the various forums. I planned to be here as long as you'd have me under those conditions so now I bid you guys arreviderci. I hope all of the EA BS that we've experienced in this OD gets fixed and you guys have a great OD. I'm sure I'll pop in every now and then to see what's up.

    Since Screwthebcs hasn't really played yet, if he would prefer to have a Pac12-S team instead of Tennessee, I'd recommend that you guys give him that option since he'll have been here longer than whomever will replace me.

    Take care guys and I'll see you later.

    You will truly be missed, a great asset to The Experience and I am not happy that you're leaving. But I respect and more so and agree with it based on the circumstances that surround the decision.

    Hopefully this can be resolved sooner rather later so that you are back with us.
