This is always the hardest part of being the commish, honestly. I have to make sure everyone has 4 and 4 home and away and that no one plays anyone twice. APF2k8 generates whacked out schedules. Some guys have 7 home guys, others have 1. So I have to go through and manually balance them up.

Geez, that's nuts!

Hey Firesloth, this week early evening works best for me (start between 6 and 7pm) any night between tonight and Thursday. If that doesn't work, let's figure something else out. PM me and we can start hashing out a time to play!

Farscry -- Our schedules may be opposing this week... I'll typically be available after 10 pm, with 11 pm (east coast time) being more likely. Let's see if we can find each other on sometime. What's your weekend like?

I'm excited to play this again! While I may lose plenty of APF games, it's usually nothing like the 45-0 drubbing I got playing SpyNavy in Madden. (And he only scored one TD in the second half!)

I will be on tonight around 9 eastern after Hell's Kitchen. I can play then.

Actually, I could probably do 11pm eastern (10 central) tonight after the raid in WoW. I might be a few minutes after 11pm eastern, but I'd be able to pop on so we can play our week 1 game that way. How's that sound for you?

That might work. On the other hand, I may not be able to stay up that late tonight, given how I feel right now! So, I'll look for you if I get a chance to pop on, if not, let's keep in touch.

Gotcha dude!

Farscry, for league games make sure to go into the league and then into the lobby for the league. That's how you do it, right?

Yeah; but I think one can invite the other player, too? I don't remember, now. We'll form up a party and make it work.

If it's like NHL 2k7 then yeah, it should work that way.

maxox, I'm available Thursday and Friday night this week, pretty much any time 6 pm CST to midnight CST.

Farscry -- Sorry I missed you last night; I was asleep by about 9:30 pm!

Good game last night frankie. It was intense from the first kickoff all the way till the last onside kick. I look forward to playing you again in the playoffs!

No problem dude! The raid went late last night in WoW, so I didn't get onto the 360 until around 11:20 eastern, I stuck around for a few minutes but figured from what you said that if you weren't on already, you probably wouldn't show up.

Tonight and tomorrow night I'm busy after 10 eastern, but if we could start a game by 9 eastern or earlier I can probably make it. I'm supposed to be out of town this weekend too. It's the perfect storm of busy scheduling this week, though there's a small chance I may just stay home and skip the weekend trip.

Ertic, what's your schedule like these days? I seem to remember it was easier finding games during the day with you. My schedule is fairly flexible, except Tuesdays and Thursdays are kind of bad.

Good game, muffin. We had a similar game to you guys, Gumbie. 3 or 4 80 yard touchdown bombs by ruthless and his 9 gold receivers. 315 yards rushing for me with Earl Campbell. An onside kick and two two-point conversions decided the game.

And I made ruthless punt once. Great game.

Hey JH,

Well tonight is FFL draft,

I can do tomorrow night. I will get home around 6pm MST (8pm EST)
Same for Friday and Saturday is out

Sunday can do anytime before 6pm EST

I keep thinking like the site is there and people can go check it. Sorry.

You know, I knew I was going to suck going into this, but ouch, I didn't think I was going to suck quite THAT badly.

Firesloth and I got our game in last night, and it was quite the learning experience!

Your receivers were having a hard time getting open and, well, Jim Harbaugh was doing you no favors! Since there's no website for folks to look at (@!@#$*^$@), my Biohazard beat Farscry's Rhinos 28-0. It may have stayed at 21-0, but we were practicing Farscry's offense, and the fastest way to get him the ball back was to run it in from the 2.

It was a bit harsh ... I had Roger Staubach throwing to two good receivers and a silver TE and Barry Sanders putting some mean jukes on his defenders. His receivers....well, they really were having issues. I think practicing what Meggett does well may help free up the passing game a bit. You had some really nice runs in there. I'm happy to play again sometime if you want practice! I had fun chatting and playing...I hope you had the same!

Absolutely, that's most of the fun with these leagues for me. I really appreciated the patience and tips on improving my play; hopefully I can go with that and get better next time around!

Biggest thing I need to work on right now is my offense, specifically my passing game. I'm bad with that receiver tunnel-vision.

Anyone seen maxox? I haven't been able to contact him.

He's in Australia on his honeymoon, and will be back on the 21st. But he is always good about getting games in. since the schedule is flex, feel free to grab your week two and three opponents in the meantime.

Sorry, this week was kind of bad. Sunday may be kind of tough for me, unless we do it pretty early in the AM. My daughter has a soccer game and girlscouts that I need to run her to. I may be able to get home by 6pm EST and be ready to play. How does you schedule look this week?

Jayhawker

If you're around later tonight would you be down to play our week 2 game?

I think I can do that. What time are you thinking?

Staats, we could play our week 2 game.
