    Gentlemen, the online franchise has been advanced to the Wild Card round. The deadline will be Monday, 10/29/12 at MIDNIGHT EST. Loren will be out of town this weekend and so his game with Curtis won't kickoff until Monday night, hence the extended deadline.

    Here are the official playoff seedings for the AFC...

    AFC
    1 (bye + home field) Ravens (14-2)
    2 (bye) Chiefs(12-4)

    3 Jets (11-5)
    4 Colts (11-5)
    5 Broncos (11-5)
    6 Jaguars (10-6)

    Once again we are hosed by incorrect tie-break calculations within the program. The Panthers should have the #6 seed as they beat the 49ers with the SOV tie break in this order: head-to-head does not apply; conference records tied (6-6); common games does not apply (did not meet minimum of four), SOV. However, we are unable to exchange out rosters as we could in the past. As a result, based on EA's inaccurate calculations, here are the official seedings for the NFC (sorry Jim)...

    NFC
    1 (bye + home field) Packers (14-2)
    2 (bye) Seahawks (12-4)

    3 Saints (11-5)
    4 Cardinals (10-6)
    5 Eagles (10-6)
    6 49ers (9-7)

    To those of you with Wild Card games, please get them done ASAP so that we can advance as soon as the last game is final. Please reply to this thread once your game is complete. Thanks, and good luck!

    Yeah, I had a feeling the tie breakers being completely right was too good to be true. So basically after the easy one (h/h, div record, conf record) it must revert to the old alphabetical? The worst part is all the XP I missed out on, no getting that back. Oh well, good luck in the playoffs everyone!

    That's funny how the Cardinals got the 4 seed and I got the 5. I don't understand why it's so hard for EA to get that simple of a task to work correctly. I gotta say though, I'm not complaining about it! We've been a MUCH better road team than home team all year!

    Gotta feel for the Panthers! That's b/s. It makes Madden look ridiculous year in and year out. Why can't they put out a patch that corrects that? Oh wait, we've been asking that for years.

    one would figure with all the "realism" they are always trying to accomplish that would include something as small as the proper tiebreaking procedures? guess not... :rolleyes:

    It's not even tie-breaking though man. I mean it is. But they can't even get it as right as each division winner gets seeded 1-4 and then 2 wild card teams. Lol. That's pretty bush league in a football game!

    Sorry Jim....I kind of figured it was still a long shot for us to make it if I had won my week 17 game and you ended up losing yours.....pass the (h/h, div record, conf record) i'm not familiar with the tiebreaker procedures...and I guess EA isn't either.........tough break Jim.....what a fuck up EA....as I thought I played my last game of the season & playoff game in week 17!!!

    Looks like I'll have to tell my boys to unpack their cleats and gear up again!
