    The MaddenMania Player's League is looking for players interested in taking part in a superstar only CCM league on the 360.

    The league is intended to be a secondary league for those involved and as a result a bit more casual than most of the other leagues out there. Basically a nice break from the grind of normal Madden leagues. Advances will vary depending on how quickly we move, but we'd be shooting for every 3 to 5 days.

    - Ultimately looking for 20 to 24 players, although we'll go with what we have at launch. We're intentionally keeping it small to allow players to move to different teams via trades and free agency.

    - You'll be controlling a rookie from last year's NFL draft. We'll pick players in a couple of weeks and have folks randomly sorted to be fair. Once a player on a team is picked, no other players on that team are eligible (this is a Madden rule, not a league rule). So lets say somebody takes RGIII. That means no other Redskins can be picked.

    - Each player in the league is given one "joker" card. meaning at the end of the season they can stop using their current player and instead take over one of the brand new rookies coming into the league. The same thing goes for players who have to stop playing for another reason (cut and aren't picked up, career ending injury or whatever else).

    - Really the competition here is two fold - you're both looking to win as a team but its also a race to see who will get into the Hall of Fame and who has the best career overall.

    Interested Players:

    We'll pick players in a couple of weeks, so get in early!

    I'm hoping we'll have those after EA does their last ratings video. We have the QBs already.

    i am very interested to take a few lower draft picks to their rightful glory.

    A big IF i can get them to perform well enough to start.


    bought my xbox360 the other day. had a 360 early, moved to ps3 in 08 and now i have both. I will stick to NCAA on ps3 but go with madden on 360.

    I'm thinking, depending on where I am, I'm going to go get a nickle corner from the second or third round.

    So just to be clear this can be ANY rookie. From Luck to Mr. Irrelevant and beyond? So when I draft if I wanna be a 3rd rounder i can?

    Yes any rookie, but when a rookie is taken, obviously that rookie's team is off the table.

    yup. if folks want to create more of a challenge for themselves they can. and if you decide later on you screwed up, you get one "get out of jail free" card that'll let you take over a new rookie just after the draft (we have to wait until we see where guys go because of the 1 person per team rule imposed on us by Madden).

    awesome - up to 11 folks. trying to get us a proper forum here. Once we get that i'll do a random draft order so folks will know where they're picking. new players will get tacked on the end.

    If the advance pace is slow enough, I'd be interested in this I think.

    Keller, this is going to be a slow advance thing, it's why I signed up, otherwise i would be too busy at TSO for my other commitments.

    Bly - I know you were originally going to look for 24 guys, but maybe 16 would be better? 2 per division?
