GWJFL Now in Week 4

OK, guys we are now in week 4. Thats the good news.

The bad news is that because I am an idiot whose fingers move before his brain, I mistakenly awarded the win to Elysium instead on Chum. And there is no way for me to change it after I hit that button.

I appologize to you both.

Note that in cruising the forums I have noted that the you have the best chance to have ESPN record your win is to have the person with the better connection (especially upload speed) challenge and for the challenger to leave his XBox on for about 30 minutes after the match, limiting other intensive inty use.

Again, Chum and Elysium, I am very sorry.

Again, it is ridiculous that we have to resort to that kind of trouble to get the games to report at all.

That''s ok on the other front, though, Yankee. You''ve done a lot more work managing this league than should have been necessary.

I second Elysium''s thoughts, Swampy your the man. It''s too bad i''m still gonna have to beat the Jets senseless in our game this week.

I third those thoughts. Good job.

I am sorry I missed out on this league. Although, I am walk-over. I''ve played one online game and I swear that this 8-year old kid on the other side beat me 40-0 while he used a controller missing the X and B buttons.

It was something to see.

I''ll try to pay attention to the next season . . . . In the meantime, I''ll be practicing my punts.

Yup, Swamp gets the shout outs...

There WILL be a second season.

/Thanks guys - but it isn''t much work at all, and even with that I hit the wrong buttons!

For the casual observers, what are the current standings?

There''s a link on the left side of the website titled ""ESPN 2K5: GWJFL"" that you can get access to the GWJ forums for the league. And in those forums is a link to the GWJ league website on ESPN''s website, though I think you might have to have a LIVE account to view it.

But as a teaser, I''m dead last.

You sure? I thought I was. Oh, and you''re doing a great job as commish, Swampy. It''s a shame the league system doesn''t work better, but you''re doing the best you can.

Hey Edgar, if you wanna play a game against someone you''re almost guaranteed to beat, I''m ready to lose.

No worries at all - in my head that''s how the game turned out anyway.

.. and I echo the sentiments of the other league-goers -- thanks for making it easy for us. Now only if ESPN would follow your lead.

Chum

I''m glad you''re not bent at me. I would not be to happy in your position, but thanks. If we play, I''ll even let you beat me! Oh, yes that''s right - so far everyone I played has - but hey, it''s teh thought that counts!
Again, though - I appreciate you being a good sport about it.

Stric9 and I are going to kick off week 4 tonight (Thursday) 11 PM EST, 8 PM PST.

Jets-Chargers! Feeeel the excitement!

Sadly no one seemed to care about Styx''s unfair loss to Demi....sob....sob ..sob

Great job though Swampy.

If ESPN would just allow you to change the outcome of played games.....it would solve many issues.

Excellent, Grump! I''ll have to start doing that on a weekly basis.

Jets-Chargers! Feeeel the excitement!

I''ve got a fever and the only prescription is more football!

J! E! T! S! JETS! JETS! JETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, at least ONE New York team has a notch in the ""W"" column this year!

I''d like to thank all of you who voted for me as last guy to win a game. Your distain was like fuel to me

Hey, I''m gonna enjoy it - I might not get another one all season!

I am ready to play Tampa Bay - when are you ready Bean?

Bagga and I are roughly scheduled for Monday!

or reset games so they could actually be played!

Psychokillerz and I played our game this morning and much to everyone''s surprise (especially my own), the Patriots scored one into the W column. I''m fearing the apocolypse is nigh as both Swampy and I have a win. <looks cautiously over shoulder>

It was good fun and more luck than anything (skill and my game playing aren''t really in the same equation), and it was great to play with Psycho.

On to week 5 to prove that this win was an anomaly!

Marlin, Imagine the now IMMENSE pressure on Sanjuro and Demiurge! Who will be last to claim a coveted ""W""?

Swampy,

When is the last day for week 4 games - I cant seem to find Bean?

The last day to play your games by is September 9. Did you PM him? Please keep me advised if you can''t locate him.

Before yesterday, I would have said it had to be me. Now, my world is upside down. Cats are marrying dogs, the world will never be the same!

I guarantee a victory over NeoStyx this week by no less than three touchdowns. Guaranteed.

God, I wish I could watch other people play their games. That would be the ultimate, being able to log on and watch league games in progress.

When are you guys playing?

I dunno. As you know, I was playing RealLife all weekend, so we haven''t been in touch. I launched a missive his way, but he may be at work right now.
