    We have begun The NFL Cathedral 2012.

    Next Advance:
    -Thursday, midnight EST

    Rules to Know about Madden:
    -You are allowed 2 total trades and all trades must be processed in the Preseason
    -You are free to add Free Agents but please, even in this, be conservative, don't get crazy, fill needs, and as a piece of advice: wait for cuts to see what you need
    -We all cut down to 53 players (whoa! its tough deciding!)

    Trade Procedure:
    -If you trade with CPU, please do your best to not get crazy. There really is no good way to do these with proposals to the committee being tedious as it might take 15 attempts until CPU accepts. So if you trade with CPU, be realistic, maybe ask in these threads opinions on fairness, and go for it. I would highly encourage, not make mandatory, refraining from huge blockbusters the first year.
    -If you do trade with other users, YOU MUST both propose the trade to the trade committe for approval (@mmullen8, Goose, AndyVanSlyke; copying me in message) and again, discuss these over texts and PMs as the suspense is more fun.

    Advice:
    -Practice, play your game, check out the vast economic/salary world, and set your scheme/depth chart/etc

    Let the games begin!

    Tips: you put a player on the trade block by simply going to your roster and hitting "x".

    For instance, when I advanced, I already had a notice saying Luke's Nate Clements was on the block.

    Post other tips or cool things that might be hard to find here.

    A number of teams offered me 3 draft pick packages for Reggie Bush. Most are for a 2013 5th and 6th and 2014 7th. I'll pass but tempting!

    REPEAT: NO trades will be allowed this year once we enter the Regular Season! None. (This does not include draft day trading)

    TIP: maybe im the only dumb one, but just realized that to receive updates via text (no email in Madden), you have to go to put in your phone number online. well it looks like everything is turned on but it is actually turned off. you have to click "on" on each of the texts you wish to receive. just heads up.

    Since I have absolutely no ties to the Pats with the exception of the hoodie basically all players are on the block. We are willing to listen to all offers.

    yeah it says that we can't

    There is no Twitter account linked. Please contact the league commissioner to do so.

    ALRIGHT LISTEN UP: everyone needs to go and add @hokiepriest AGAIN. no idea but had to delete old account (didnt use it for anything but this) and create again. It worked. so...

    1) go to Twitter and add @hokiepriest as friend
    2) go online at maddencareer.com - settings - social settings - members - link to The Cathedral Twitter Account

    Ok, let me say this. I never played Madden Preseason...ever because I thought it was stupid that I had to do all the subs. To see them change players at the QTR. Amazing touch...love this

    Ok so I put Clements on the block. Got a TON of offers. Basically teams with different draft packages. The Falcons offered me a 2nd lol not realistic. Multiple teams offered a 4,6, and 7. I just think that's way too much. I'm really considering 2 offers the Broncos offered 3rd and 7th. Multiple teams offered 4th and 6th for him. What's everybody think of that? I mean he is rated and 87 (88 in my scheme)
