    wow....who the hell is this guy....this dude is f*cking awesome.... and thats all we're playing is 3 seasons? :(

    If this is the case....it will definitely speed up our off-season in regards to draft management within the online franchise. If we do our part in doing our homework and providing a list of prospects if we arent available for commish to make our picks...we can have one of the fastest and efficient off-seasons

    Doug..this a good idea but if this feature need to be compersated. I say skip it. This part of the saeson doesn't take long for us to get through.

    Can they help us with salaries caps?

    Yes, Vince is definately KING SHIT. I'm speaking for Eddie here, but I think we are more than willing to run four seasons. However, there was such a lackluster effort that we saw last year in season four that it truly wasn't worth it. We're not wasting anyone's time with a fourth season unless we have commitment or it will be pure garbage. I guess one thing we could do is run a fourth season, and if somebody doesn't pull their weight, they are out and we go to the waiting list...

    We have already discussed this with Vince. We won't implement any kind of salary system until we know what M11 brings. If EA drops the ball for M11, you can expect to see a salary system implemented if it is feasible.

    BINGO!

    I think that the excitement of this XFN site will keep guys interested in rolling with another season....I mean you can see any and everything dealing with the franchise. Im all in for season 4...

    this site saves alot of time for everyone...compared to what we had to do for leaguedaddy....and with this draft console...it will save & spare Doug & Eddie time in the off-season...pull your weight or jump ship (no hard feelings) ;) so we can keep this thing going

    I am all for anything that speeds up any process of running the league. The more seasons we can get in the better. A question I have does this guy do something in IT for his real job?

    I was thinking along the same lines as Hoodiii. How the hell does this guy have a job, let alone a life. He's putting a ton of time and resources into this. Very awesome find Doug.

    Vince has a job as a developer and is creating this for revenue on the side. "See a need, fill a need (Robots reference for all you parents and/or movie-goers out there)."

    All I can say this is one talented dude to be able to get something up like this and functioning at such a high level. Makes you want to say how embarrassed EA should be that one guy is able to execute something like this in his spare time on his own. Impressive.
