    Wow good job. I haven't even played 09, so I'll have to play catch-up. I skipped 09 cause I was tired of the same ol' Madden. But I think this year is gonna be a huge step up from all the things I've heard so far. Anyways- thanks for the heads up- now I know how much training I'll have to do.

    I'd actually say '08 was better than '09.

    Normally I play Madden year round. Really, I got tired of Madden in October or so. Just not a well-designed game on the field, IMO. I'd personally be happy with '08's gameplay and '09's franchise mode (where the best gains were made for PS3).

    Anyways, I assume this online franchise is for 360 folks?

    Anyone want to make me a new signature? I've held out hope long enough.

  • Yeah this is for the XBox 360- and yeah this is still goin. It'd be nice if we could actually fill up all 32 teams, but we'll see. I doubt we'll get that many- but it'll still be awesome. We've still got over a couple months before the game even comes out, anyway.

  • From the Wikipedia page for Madden NFL '10:

    "The game will be released for the iPhone OS, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Wii, Xbox 360 consoles, as well as mobile devices."

    **** you, EA. I'm a PC gamer and a pretty big NFL fan. It's so incredibly lazy to not make a port to Windows, you're already doing it for the 360; not much has to change!!!! You just don't want to spend some extra cash for testing and the inevitable bug fixes that would be required for a PC version....but that's still significantly less time and money than you'll have spent making a PS3 port of it.

  • This is almost worth the rearrangement of my house it would require to get my 360 close enough to my modem to take advantage of my XBL account.

    Is this just a season, or is there an annual draft, etc?

    Well nothing's really worked out right now as far as the details. First, we've all gotta get the game- maybe a little practice time first? We'll vote on how we want it all laid out- how long we have to play each week, etc. I'm not exactly sure how the Online Franchise is gonna work yet, but we'll figure it all out and have a discussion on how we want the league to be.

    No worries right now, we're gonna try and be as flexible as we can. We can wait for you to set your system so you can join before we start- at least I don't mind, if the others don't. Or maybe there's even an option where you can join after we start.

    You should join though, you knowwww it sounds AWESOME.

  • Any conference preferences? At the moment, it looks like everybody is represented except the weiners of the AFC-North. I'm half-tempted to bask in total hatred with Dallas... or possibly give people air attack fits with NOLA. Hrm.

  • If you guys need more people/attention, just let me know and I'll temporarily move this thread to the main forum (like we did with the NET fantasy leagues). Although, it does look like your league is nearly full. Too bad I suck at these types of games!

    I almost exclusively play Rock Band or the Guitar Heroes.

    Hey that would be great FPD- we can have up to 32 people in the league, one for each team. Maybe temporarily moving this to the main forum will pick up at least a few more people. Thanks!

    I'll have to shred with you some day on Rock Band.

  • So, I thinking of just getting a 100' ethernet cable and defiling my staircase so I can get the XBL going. (Wonder if this will work? I don't want to go build a wireless network and buy adapters... 200 bucks in for a game is something even I can't creatively justify.)

    Meanwhile... still thinking about teams.

    Cowboys: I like the idea of being the most hated team in the league... but it's Cowboys.
    NY Jets: The Sanchez Story could potentially be fun... but it feels odd for a South Texas redneck to be running a DamnYankee team.
    Titans: Pretty scary team, has to be thrown into the list of Potential Champions... but they bore me for some reason.
    Saints: Wicked awesome passing attack... scrawny weiner defense.

  • PC's upstairs, XBox is downstairs. Going to have to run about a 75 or 100' ethernet cable around the corner and down the stairs... OR take a flyer on setting up a wireless network in the townhome which may or may not work without the pricey XBL adapter. Considering that I'm only going to be living there another few months, after which I can set things up however the hell I like at the new house, I think I'd rather just suck it up, get some 'lectrical tape, and strap a cable to the stairs.

    On the downside, it's 100' of cable for The Neko to chew upon. We'll see how it works out.

  • so, after reviewing the instruction book, it looks like we make a league then draft? So really all were picking is an "avatar" for a team, because all players will be spread around, right?
    Am I reading it wrong?
    And what's with the online franchise code can only be used once??
    I think before we start this we need to figure out what the dilly is? Learn from others online that messed up the first time?

  • Just a few things......

    First, Smokey, just to be clear, gnats= giants?

    Secondly, to answer your question, yes there CAN be an online draft, where we go through all the rounds and pick our players. However, I'm pretty sure everyone, including me, was planning on playing with the original team rosters. But we can still make trades, etc. Although fantasy draft might be a fun alternative after we get bored of the regular rosters....

    Finally, I was wondering if anyone else wants to be in charge of being the commish and getting the league started. I'd definitely do it, and was planning on it (that's why I started this thread to begin with) but there's a possibility I'll be internetless for a bit (in about a month or so). I don't want to be in charge of something if I can't guarantee I'll have access to it at some point.

    So I was wondering if someone else would wanna set this up and be in charge. :th2thumbs:

    Well moving the right stick up makes it a little better, but I am still having trouble.....but is anyone else noticing that the Hawks Secondary can't cover anyone worth crap.

    Oh and watch out for Devin Moore when you play me.......
