    Here's the deal. I have no time to commish two leagues. I am not going to commish two leagues. I would rather play Madden. If this doesn't become fun and drama-free quick, I'm out. That's a guarantee. This is a dang video game. I would be abundantly happy and at peace if you all decided to play NCAA and I played Madden in my living room with a beer, my beautiful wife, and the Hawaii breeze blowing through my hair. But I'm exhausted. And I'm not going to be exhausted anymore over this BS.

    That's not personal. That's wise for my family, church, and sanity.

    Also the Giants beat my ass 24-14, yet it was not even that close scored a late TD to make it look good. There dline is evil could not run, and any route over ten yards was too long because I would get sacked. The only passes I completed were quick slants and outs. Was a very frustrating loss to say the least not being able to move the ball.

    On a side note. The Vikings won preseason game 3 Friday night. The first team looked good and Toby Gerhart is a beast. Joe Webb is not very good and he will be on the block today.

    Hello gentlemen I just left this note with Heath. Thank you for the memories and so long for now.


    Hi Heath,

    Yesterday I texted you about a promotion at my current job. I have talked with my wife about it at great length and I have decided to take the promotion with that said it comes with great sadness and regret that I must resign from the Madden dynasty effective immediately. I will be working 65 to 70 a week and will be working days and nights. I did not feel it would be right to be in a league where I would not be able to play and be available to the other members of the league.

    I have do what is best for me and my family and I know you understand that for sure in talking to you the past couple of days. I had a great time in the league and this by far was the best league I have ever been in. It is run very well and all the other guys felt like brothers to me. I will miss you guys and miss the passion of playing this game with you guys. I will be online from time to time playing for fun and as a man of my word I will not join another dynasty period.

    Thank you for the fun times and the memories and hope we can talk from time to time. Your a great guy and I am glad we had the chances to talk like we did.

    Thank you to all the members as well for making me part of the family and always looking out for me and for each other. You will be missed.

    Ian Moss

    Good luck Ian. Thanks for being a part.

    On a sidenote: After 5ints, I lowered the user INT to 30. Also changed speed to normal. lets see what happens.

    p.s. not sure changes take effect until advance.

    In a couple more surprising moves (ala Rick Pitino in Boston), new Dolphins coach Hale has made a few more moves, appearing to stockpile VT Hokies and build a family atmosphere:
    -The Dolphins trade a 2012 3rd pick (40th ovr) and TE Anthony Fasano (78ovr) to the Arizona Cardinals for RB Ryan Williams (75ovr) and TE Jeff King (71ovr)
    -The Dolphins sign recently cut WR Jarret Boykin (68ovr) who has immediately been promoted to starting wideout after an impressive first couple of practices

    The Dolphins have used all of there preseason trades (2) and now add Hokies Williams, King, and Boykin to recently acquired SS Cody Grimm. Weird things brewing in Miami.

    (in real life, rookie Boykin, the Hokies all-time leading wideout, was an unsigned FA that just made the Packers 53man and was named most consistent player in camp! Congrats Jarrett!)

    cuz of the madness, to let things settle, and give guys a second to breath, respond, and play their last game, make their last trade, and practice if they wish.

    Has Coach Ian retired or been kicked from the league yet? I'll be able to play my preseason game against the Bucs sometime tonight or tomorrow.
