Hi guys, every year I used to host a league for the other Seahawk sites I used to participate on. I have never organized one here though. I am now exclusive to .Net so I would like to start that tradition here. I know that Madden 11 is getting old but I would like to create a .Net league and have one season before Madden 12. Madden 12 comes out in August and with the mods permission I would like to host the official Madden 12 league. Assuming that they will let me do it I think that a practice run in Madden 11 would make the next one much more successful.
My plan is to have one game per week and post all scores and standings on the forum so those that cannot participate but are interested can follow the league progress.
So what do you need to do?
Have a XBOX 360
Have a copy of Madden 11
Have a active XBOX LIVE account
Post your gamertag and prefered team on this thread. I will befriend you on XBOX and send you a league invite. I always run with the Seahawks but there are 31 other spots open. I will attribute each team to each participant taking their choice and a "first come" basis.
Players will have to msg each other and arrage a time to meet. If you provide me with a cell number I can too try to help and call people and make it happen.
Games can be played at any time during the week but have to be completed by midnight on Sunday. If neither players are available to chat to and game has not been played, the game will be simmed. If I have evidence by 9 pm on Sunday that one of the players is available to play and has tried to connect with his opponent, I will boot the unavailable player out and let the available guy play the CPU. I will re-invite the booted player the next day.
In case the booted player decides that he does not want to return, I will post the available slot on this thread and let someone else take their turn.
I think this could be lots of fun and if the mods agree then I would like to get this started next Monday the 16th. In order for this to happen I would need to have everyone signed up and teams allocated by next weekend.
***update*** OK the league has been created. On the live menu pick franchises, then join franchise, then search.
League name: NET LEAGUE (all caps)

please introduce yourselves in this thread first with you gamer tag and team chosen (first come first serve) so it's easier for me to put together in terms of presenting standings and weekly scores here. I have done this in the past and it is a blast.
feel free to join, pick your team, PM other players and ask me any questions. ABSOLUTELY NO TRADES, until everyone is in and league officially starts. ABSOLUTELY NO FA PICK UPS, until everyone is in. It will be boring for a week or so till everyone is in and then the fun will really start. Report any problems between players to me, I will listen to both sides and do the right think. No cheating and for those of you that this is a first time.....it will be sick.
(some invites have been sent to those to which I already had gamertags for but there are still plenty room for people to join, I would love if some of the mods from here would join too)
