    I wanted to address this issue as I have recently taken over the commissioner role. I have done the math, and if we continue at our current pace (Preseason Week 1 24 hours, 48 hour advances for the season, 24 hours for the playoffs, and 12 hours for each offseason stage), we could get in SEVEN more seasons if we continue the league until August 20th of next year.

    Part of the fun of a league like this is really building your team. Eight total seasons would be a record for any Madden league I've ever been in, and something I always wanted to push for. I will not moving onto the xbox one (as far as Madden goes), as I've started something on this gen and I've already invested hours and hours of time into building this team. We have a chance to finally, FINALLY, go one cycle without a reboot (knock on wood). This doesn't mean I Peench or Shaun Mason may not go out there and start a xbox one league down the road, and nobody will hold a gun to your head keeping you here.

    I thought you deserved to know my intentions and plans going forward. Thanks for being a part of this league!

    Please lets not switch to Xbox One- I'd really like if we can keep this group (best we can of course) and just continue to roll.

    I will keep my commitment to this league for the cycle barring any unforeseen life changes. If I like Madden next gen, and there is a league, and the commissioner wants me in his league, I'll join in addition to TMFL.

    My thought process is to stay with TMFL 360 the whole way through. I'm probably going to delay getting an Xbox One until next year just before Madden comes out. That way I avoid any potential Madden 06 issues. I know that a lot of signs indicate that not happening this go around, but the truth is that I need to keep my commitments to TMFL and PFP.

    That and, financially, waiting until next summer makes the most sense for me.

    Dudes I got a decision to make...

    Tomorrow Nov 17th (and only tomorrow), Gamestop is giving an extra 90% in store trade in value for consoles, games etc.

    I have a Xbox360, kinect, PS3 and controllers for both. I'm looking at near 400$ in trade in value.

    Xbox360 Trade in 80$ x .9 = 152$
    PS3 Trade in value 100$ x .9 =190$

    Kinect, controllers I'm thinking another 50$ or more.

    That's basically 100$ for a new X1.......Sucks because I wanted to at least stick out a few more seasons before I switch over but I'm not sure if I can validate that with this deal.

    I wouldn't even be able to get on ebay and sell these for the amount I would get tomorrow......I'll update my final decision later today but it's going to be a hard deal to pass up....

    Thus far we are only down two members, holding strong at 30. I expected some fluctuation with next gen, but still plan on going for eight seasons on the 360. Draft time is around the corner, and everyone knows how much fun that can be.

    DC let us know if you're down to ride out the cycle with us or not ASAP. MoonBBad has informed he'll be leaving the league after this season (not for next gen, personal reasons). Even in those cases, 28 isn't bad. I'm actively looking for quality TSO members to fill the spots.

    No need to rush (not saying you are) in our search for quality TSO members for this league. If we ride for a while not full, no big deal. There are plenty of good folks on this site for us to get wrangled into the league.
