GWJ Madden 2012 Organization XBOX 360

well considering the biggest difference from the teams I have seen is...Chester taylor to arizona and meriweather to chicago...so...Ill leave it up to the League

I vote to restart when the next roster update hits.

No opinion from me. I'm just following the herd.

The Roster in our league is woefully bad The Pats have only 2 Te's on the roster(at the time they had 4) I say we restart with at the very least the current rosters if not wait until the Regular Season Update. I say this with the devistation that one of my favorite Patriots has been cut(Meriweather CAN I PLEASE HAVE HIM BACK I DON'T HAVE ANY FS's)

But The rosters we have now are real bad and need to be changed.

JK about keeping Meriweather unless you will let me LOL...I really don't have any Free Safeties and am really interested to see what EA does about it.

Also what will the Free Agency and trading policies be? Because I am going to have a huge holes to fill.

trades with the computer is possible, but you have to propose it on the forums here before submiting to the computer. Trades with humans are just up to the humans involved. We do ask that you make the rest of the league aware of the trade. Also, there will be a Free agent draft period before the first game of the season. Basically, the way it was run last year, you pick 5-10 players that you want from free agency and send them in a private message to me. on the saturday before the season starts, I will go through and plug in the highest pick to each human team based on the rankings of team. I do this for three rounds, then whatevers left is pretty much free game. Thats how I understand this to go down.

Cool Thanks for the info I am so freaking Jazzed for this NFL season I'm looking around trying to find out when the Regular Season Roster Update is

@Donny_Moore says that first roster update will be ready possibly Friday but more likely Saturday

Can I change my team to Green Bay, I got my Bays mixed up

Hey all - I was in the league last season playing Dallas, and left after I realized I sucked pretty bad. I need a bit of help, and I haven't found it elsewhere, so I thought maybe you kind folks could either help or point me to a resource that will. Everyone here was always real friendly to me.

I've become obsessed with developing my own custom playbook built around a double wingback formation. (Dont ask why) The problem is, I honestly don't know how to build a play that actually has a chance of succeeding. So what I need is a pretty much idiot proof primer that shows you exactly how to use the custom play creator in Madden. For example, I'm not 100% sure I understand what the term "pull" means when assigning that job to a player. So I need a fair amount of help.

Any and all help is much appreciated. Better yet, if anyone uses or knows where to find double wingback play formations that actually work in Madden, that would rock.

Thanks guys. Oh, and I'm hoping that with some more practice I'll be able to join again soon.

feel free to join whenever you like...as for playbook options I can help you build plays. If you want to give me your email address in a pm I will respond with a abc version of play building...everything from man in motion to pulling the center for a sweep. if you have any specific questions I will be more than happy to help.

Zell Stated it perfectly, trades with Comp must be made to the team, informed to the league, and oked by the Commish (me) before the week is rolled. If I want a trade with the comp then Zell acts as ok-er. New this year every team/player gets 1 veto a season. If I say I am fine with the trade the first person who veto's it will be charged their veto powers. This means they overrule my decision. Now you can also use this veto power another way; if you veto my decision on your own trade the decision then goes to a league vote. This also includes if someone wants to ok a trade for a different team that I say no to. (not sure why this would happen but just saying)

Free Agency (FA) works this way...There will be a draft as soon as the new league is created and the latest update is brought in like Zell said (btw when Zell announces on here who is going to which team I need to know who will be dropped from each team in order to make room)...As for FA after week 1, it is open game...Before you add players to your roster you must put it on the forum for that week. I will then have a FA signing period every week after all of the games are played and before the league is rolled. If the League is rolled and you have to still pick up somebody you must wait until the next weeks games are played. I will go into More Details when the new Forum is up.

If you have any questions please do ask...

Madden roster is out but its bad real bad

OK apparently this isn't the Online Franchise roster which according to the ever useless Donny Moore mid weeks ish so with your time line it will work out.

Just bought the game. Boo :p

set up online so u can get an invite

As soon as the guy mails it to me, I'm set

well good

So when are they supposed to adjust the roster to season form?

Knowing EA, mid October

Well I guess the roster update for online franchise was supposed to hit sometime this week Are we waiting for that one or the one after Week 1...I am not trying to sway either way but some of the rookies may be a little more user friendly after week 1 I hear Cammy Newton is getting a bump to 81. But if we are going as is I believe Donny Moore said online Franchise roster will be mid week I guess.

The rosters are really unbalanced...I would like to wait

Honestly I am the newest guy and while I try to give my opinion I am really trying to not be pushy I think starting with a bad roster can have disastrous results I totally agree with you on waiting This seems like a group that has played together before and I don't think it will hurt to wait a little.

I agree on waiting as I have not received my copy. I dont even think the a-hole has shipped it yet

We can wait...We can Roll...I dont care either way...just let me know.

we will wait then...I will inform everyone when the league starts. The next time I create a new league we will be using those rosters

Sounds good. I'm waiting to see how Terrelle Pryor looks on the next roster update. He's already less pick prone than any of my other starters.

Is it just me or is this game markedly better than NCAA 12? I got it today via Gamefly and I am really enjoying it. I'm not typically a Madden fan, but this is a big improvement over NCAA. Is everyone using custom sliders or one of the default levels?

I am enjoying this game a lot
