League Dying?

Post  entourage on Sun Jan 10, 2010 7:58 pm

Only 4 teams have played their games so far. Deadline is tonight. I haven't played my game yet because I have a trade issue, but Admin hasn't even been on to resolve it...hasn't been on since friday morning. I almost feel like we should take the 10-15 teams that are active in this league and try and start up a new one with some new people who will be active...We have yet to play all our games by the deadline for any week and we are barely getting 1 game a week...

Ive been trying to get a hold of the Bengals owner all week. It's annoying cause he's never online and it doesn't even say when he was online last...I don't even know if he's gold. I hope the league itsn't dying but to me it seems like there is only about 10 active owners and it's pissing me off.

i was up for restarting a long time ago but now ive done so much to get the players i want, itd def suck now but im still down if thats what we got to do, the good thing is that we do have about 10 or so really dedicated owners. if we could fill up at least 2 teams in each division that would be great, so we really would only need about 16 players and that would even make the draft better because the computer doesnt care about age lol


lets still try to revive this one tho cuz weve put in so much work already and if it dont work out we can try to find good players

Even if we restarted we will have the same problems, unless we don't do a 32 player league


Whatever we do, everyone that is active on this forum, don't leave. If we have to, we will make a new franchise with the 15 good owners we have and begin from there.

I love my team too, but I think it would be best if we restarted. We could get new users for inactive teams or just do a 16 user franchise and go from there. If the league is going like this when we're only in week 3, I dont see much positives in it's future.

The positive is that we have a good core of owners that look like they wont quit. So my vote is to get a couple new ones to make 16 active owners and schedule a new fantasy draft ASAP.

i bet we could even set up a system of being able to trade with the comp (respectively) if they have some players we needed to get from them, plus the skill level has got to be on all-madden cuz that helps stop crazy plays when your cpu aint as dumb, plus when you play your comp game its not a guaranteed win

We should go for a 24 player league, 1 comp per division.

The computer teams should just suck, lol, it would be a waste for them to have any very good players. All the comp teams should just be decent with old people that no one wants.

I like all-pro over all-madden, all-pro allows a little more chance to plays

The problem with 24 user controlled teams would be that we’d probably run into the same problem we’re in now. Right now we have about 12-14 players that we know are active in the forums, play their games and will probably not quit on us. That means we’d have to go and find about 12 more players similar to us and that probably wont happen. If we go with 16 then we would only have to find about 2-4 active owners and we’d be set. Yes Id rather have 32 user controlled teams but its just not realistic in a fantasy draft league. At least we know we have a good set right now.

As for the computer trading we should really try to limit it so users aren’t ripping off the computer. You can trade crappy old players for young stars so we should have some kind of approval system so this does not happen.

And regarding All pro or all madden. I prefer all pro by a long shot. On All madden it allows the user to just control a DE and let the computer do everything for them. They don’t have to switch to the player to make an interception or tackle because the computer will just do it for them. In my other online franchise we use 7 minute no accelerated clock quarters on all pro and it works perfectly. This is what I would suggest.

completely agree

If its 16 players, we should make it 10 minute quarters with 15 sec runoff


I call Broncos!

I agree with 16 teams, 2 per division...way easier that way. We need a real active commish to make sure everything runs smoothly. I also vote for All-pro and I am fine with 8 min quarters tho, feel like 10 min is way too long. I like the setup of this website though so if Whytenoise can set that up that would be legit. I don't think we should do CPU trading though. Cause obviously everyone is gonna want the same players on their team so its gonna be a fight to get them which could be a problem. If you really like a guy, be sure to draft them. We kinda know where the CPU drafts people so just be sure to draft ahead of them.

We should have a couple of us be admins on the site so the comish doesn't have to do everything

no offense to dbake, but hes not on enough to really be the comish

Ya thats a real good idea Metho. My votes for commish would be for any of these: Metho, Whytenoise, Entourage, Keg, FOR3and1 and CJOK (even though he has been super quiet lately)

The most active of us should all be atleast admins, comish doesn't have to do everything, it would make it more manageable

We might even be overestimating how many serious owners we have since there's like 5 of us having this discussion and dbake hasn't chimed in yet...I don't want the league to die but I can't even get a hold of my opponent for the third straight week and it's annoying.

We should TRY for 24, but we can settle for 16

If we have a strong core of us we would be set when Madden 2011 comes out too.
