    Big Movers:
    Browns + 5
    Giants + 4

    *Edited with only current owners listed.


    Week 9 PvP Results:
    NY Giants 51, Atlanta 38
    Cleveland 27, Baltimore 21
    Dallas 21, San Francisco 14
    St. Louis 27, Minnesota 24

    Week 10 PvP Games:
    Miami (5-3) at Arizona (4-4)
    Atlanta (5-3) at Philadelphia (4-4)
    Green Bay (7-1) at Detroit (6-2)
    Oakland (6-2) at Denver (7-1) - MY GOTW**
    Buffalo (8-0) at Kansas City (6-2)

    **There are 3 games (the last 3 above) that all qualify to be game of the week. Intra-conference Bills and Chiefs have the best combined record and this is the third year of the matchup, but there are also two huge division games (GB/Det and Oak/Den) that have only 1 more loss combined than the other game.

    I'll give this one to Oak/Den because of JoHud's CPU loss. It'd be tied for the best combined record and also a big divisional rivalry if he would have just put away those Super-Patriots.

    I have not heard from Betz but I plan on contacting him via XBL tonight to see whats up. I hope it was just a case of letting the emotions get the better of him but ya never know.

    Excellent stuff as always @Subkontraktor - really looking forward to our game tonight - its been WEEKS since I've played a PvP - gonna have to shake the rust off.

    Have no sympathy living in the NFC West. The only 100% Pvp Division.

    Thats more like it! I realize you need to spend like 15 hours a day labbing your new schemes to keep pounding all of us.

    Wow that's sad to lose a team like that, but we all have to make our own choices. Maybe when Madden 12 comes out he will be back.

    Nothing personally against him as I dont know him or have played him... But I typically dont enjoy being in dynasties/franchises with people who quit like that...

    Wow. My best rival has quit. Thats just fabulous. It was just a few weeks ago he really wanted to be on the podcast, and he was. I really thought he was a dedicated owner. But for him to just quit like that, mid season, during a game while leaving his opponent hanging... that's just wrong and just flat out shitty.

    Understandable, unfortunately let's hope you don't take the same stance when I have to leave for Basic Training and AIT for the US Army and I will have to drop from the league at that point until I am stationed and set where I am until I can come back.

    We will look forward to your return when you're gone. Life happens.

    Clearly Betz's exit was a different case.

    Theres a difference between hey guys I have to leave in a couple months and all of a sudden deciding you're leaving in the middle of a PVP game. To me it sounds like Betz was a fair-weather kind of owner. The Eagles were dominant last season but this season the team has struggled a bit. Part of the fun of franchise mode is taking a terrible team and making it awesome and for that to happen you gotta be patient and stick it out through a few shitty seasons here and there.

    exactly... @kdpnutter. If life has other commitments that doesn't allow you to play that is one thing. Rage-quitting because you are losing is another...

    All valid points. I don't know if I would accept Betz back for 12 - he did express interest.

    Lets not run his name in the mud or anything - he made his decision, he is his own man. We're adults here, lets let that be the end of it.

    On a positive note, we may be picking up an owner for New Orleans.

    Very true words Keller. That would be great if we finally got another owner in the NFC South. I am shocked no one wants to take the Bucs. Young up and coming team with a lot of talent. I do appreciate the kind words tho that people said. When I saw the quickness of how everyone jumped at Betz made me think gees is this what it's gonna be like when I leave?

    Also on a bad note with the power Rankings with the loss of the Eagles as a team did drop back to 9th for 8th in the old rankings lol just gotta keep plugging away at it but on a good note, I am leading the division for now so gotta keep plugging away hard for the rest of the season and hopefully can get in close to another season before I leave on May 9.

    Its just even before here, I have been in a lot of leagues and dynasties and you get those guys who will do that... So I guess I am a bit jaded and lack much sympathy for one who bails after a few tough losses... But, like I said, I dont know him, I was just speaking on the principal of the matter...

    Yeah, thank god you joined otherwise I would have no one to in the NFC East. Me and Betz had some epic games, but I'm sure over time we have have some great games too.
