OK, let''s shoot for monday night after 10. Sunday nights are iffy.

Yeah, there it is.

sh*t. I can''t play now. I guess the deadline''s over after tonight, so the win is yours. Not like it matters, my connection probably would have crapped out anyway.

Meh. I almost forgot myself... that''s what we get for being all on the ball and planning on Day 1.

Nah, just roll for it. If I win, cool, if not, no big. It''s not like I would have won anyways.

Highlander barely pulled it out .. by 13 points ... great game. Rain, lightning, massive tackles. And the Giants are actually good. Who knew?

Great game Fletcher. Tough defense from the G-men. Score would have been a lot closer (or even a lose for me) had the drop bug not bitten a few times.

Always play Fletcher in the rain. He likes to stare at it. It distracts him.

What drop bug?? I see no drop bug..

I like the snow, also. But most people Beeeeiitch when we play in it. I like playing slow motion football, what being old an'' all...

It looks like there are a couple of games across both leagues that would benefit from an extension. The fact that I won''t be around to do the rollover tonight coupled with the late notice forces me to make this a two-day (really only about 36 hours from now) extension. 1) Please take advantage of this to get your games played. 2) Please stop waiting until the last day to get your games in - it doesn''t allow any make-up time for things like disconnects or unanticipated RL difficulties. GameCal updated.

Pigpen,

Just PM''d you again.

Looking ahead to next week, Who owns the Texans now? I don''t recognize who Frostfire 2112 is. Is he on the forums? Not on the Gamertag list.

LoganFrost''s Rush-lovin alter ego?

I cannot wait to see how I do with a better place kicker, punter, and my defensive additions. Also with Pollard in place of TG. Can''t wait, I tell you!

Frostfire 2112 is indeed Logan''s new gamertag. Sorry you''ll have to wait the extra couple days, Swampy...

No problem. Just enjoying a decent record for the first time ever, in the full knowledge it won''t last.

great game legion...

I thought I had it won down 3 and driving in the final minutes...damn fumble! Ahh well you were a monster running the ball on me again, I need to work on that.

Grumpy,

Just a reminder that Opti forfeited

Well, bagga and I tried to play our game last night. He was up 10-0 in the second (after a RETARDED interception - totally my fault) but I was coming back, I just know it. And then, his connection died. We had connection issues (""Waiting for Opponent"") all game, and then in the middle of the second, I got the ""The Network Settings are not good enough to continue this game"" message. I clicked Abort (as opposed to Arbitrate, or whatever my other option was, and then couldn''t hear Bagga anymore.

Was there some sort of way to replay the game after something like that happened? When I went back into the lobby, it showed me as having ""No opponent"" so I''m assuming the game rolled over and will be decided by a coin flip or something.

I think right now Bagga''s internet issues are going to prevent him from playing any complete games, it''s going to be a bumpy ride until his internet provider gets off their asses and fixes it.

The league has been advanced to week 8.
NeoCell gets the win over Optimistic by forfeit.
Grumpicus gets the win over the AWOL Duttybrew.
Warlock, according to ESPN, it was Detroit that lost the connection last night... but I''ve never put much faith in their determinations of who dropped. That being said, I''m just going leave it the way it is (WAS got the win) since that''s about as random as a coin-toss and he was up 10-0 anyway. To answer your question (""Was there some sort of way to replay the game after something like that happened?""), yes, if the game had been played before the last day, then I could have reset the disconnection and you guys could have tried again but as it is, we''ve already had a two-day extension and it''s time to move forward. Sorry.
