    We'll be advancing to the regular season (finally) tonight around 5:30 p.m. Eastern. Lets try and get these games done by the end of the weekend. Make sure to click the "Ready to Advance" when you're all set, as the franchise will auto-advance if everybody is ready.

    Human vs. Human games:
    CWT 3000 vs. CalebMackie
    oneshot24 vs. NYJuggalo45
    Ghost vs. charter04 (Monday Night!)

    Others have the computer:
    Keller
    Jordan Kleinedler
    bringbackjimmy
    The Rulah
    mooseboyj
    BlyGilmore
    sschevyridah

    A few reminders:
    • We're still looking to play straight, sim football even though you're playing as one guy. Spread the ball around. Try and call plays like you're the head coach, not the star HB/QB/CB/LB/WR. Don't pad stats (mostly QB and HB here) and make sure your numbers are realistic. "But I'm the QB," isn't an excuse to throw the ball 50 times.
    • Human vs. Human games will take a bit of time (especially if its an offense vs. defense matchup). We encourage you to wear headphones if you have them and chit-chat during the game.
    • To try and keep stats similar between human v. human games and computer games, the accelerated clock has been turned off. Hopefully EA fixes this - I'd prefer to do 10 minutes with accel on.
    • Have fun. Make sure to post here in the forums and let us know how you did!

    Can you play tonite? I should be available after like 9:30 est. I think you're Ridley right? I'm Locker. So we will never see the field vs each other. If you have headset, can watch the Packers-Bears game, and just let the other person know when the ball switches sides.

    "FUCK! Gotta punt. Your ball."
    "God damn it. INT. Your ball."
    "Not for long ... i just fucking fumbled!"
    "Yeah but I returned it for a TD - your ball again!"

    Definetly keep it straight. I saw some no huddle this preseason which I thought in the 1st quarter was lame.

    I run no huddle. Every drive. It's my O. Luck 5 TD 4 int against bears. Brown had 81 yards and 2 fumbles and dislocated elbow.

    We're going to basically mirror The Longest Yard's rules (which are essentially the site wide rules) for this game ...

    http://forums.traditionsportsonline.com/threads/the-longest-yard-rules.79485/

    No huddle can be used, but in moderation. So the answer to "it's my offense" is "no it isn't."

    In general "it's my offense" or "it's my defense" is the worst phrase to use in-regards to your playstyle. "Hey you nanoblitzed me all game!" "It's my defense!"

    I'd love to seem them for every game. didn't make it a requirement though since we're taking the secondary league approach.

    Personally i'm going to do basically a franchise report thread that I just keep adding to.

    Ill keep it to a minimum then. Figured some people might be offended or hurt the rules.
