    If you do the math we are going to be lucky to get maybe 2 more seasons in before the new release. I think if we change to a hard 72 hour advance we might be able to squeaze in a 3rd. I know most like this league because of the casual pace, but I don't think 72 hours would be that big of a strain to most. Plus I forsee some dropping as they will need a "break" before the new release. So those that are truely committed should be able to push through. Just a thought.

    I also vote we skip preseason!!!

    Skip preseason or at least reduce it to only 1 game.

    I thought decisions like this were made by the commish???

    I'm one of the guys who are in this league because its not 3 times a week advance and if it changes I don't think I would remain even though I am really enjoying TLY. Two more seasons sounds perfect! Why try to rush and get in 3 when things have been going pretty smoothly around here in terms of solid competition and people actually playing most of their games? I am definitely a proponent of keeping things the way they are.

    Voted to keep it the same . Dont think there is a need to rush. If we did and got t othe 3rd season, i bet we wouldn't even finish the 3rd season and people would just drop off until the new release.

    I ran it by the commish. He said set up a poll and see what happens. No harm in gauging interest.

    I'd prefer to keep the advance schedule as is. Seems like we are finally getting all the games done in a timely fashion.

    Definitely wouldn't mind shortening the pre-season though.

    I agree with Danny and Kidofcrash23 No need to rush and I believe we only played one preseason game last year.

    I like it the way it is. Allows me to enjoy Madden in a different way and I feel if things were to speed up, though not as fast as TMFL, that I would be unable to keep up.

    If we increase the pace, i am likely out. I am about to start coaching football and soccer again and my time is extremely limited for the next 3-4 months.

    If we are going to lose people to a change... It's most likely a bad idea. This league is running like a fine tuned motor.... We don't want to put a foreign part in there if you know what I mean... That is why people join the TLY. The three day advance is not so demanding and all games get played. This league has a good nucleus of members. We don't want to screw that up.

    half the league hasn't even voted, should give you an idea on what would happen if we went on a quicker advance schedule.

    If we change the league speed I will have to drop. I will not be able to keep up with the games if we move the advances up.

    For those who voted, thank you.

    The league will remain as-is, semi-weekly advances on Monday and Thursday mornings.
