Re: Madden 2011

I have always seen career ending injuries in madden, but never so much as in Madden 2001. It would be literally every season in that game that somebody went down with one. In Madden 2001 Mark Brunell went down with a fractured vertebrae....ouch

All 5.5 Million Madden Consumers Dead in Worst Madden Jinx Ever - SportsPickle News


All 5.5 Million Madden Consumers Dead in Worst Madden Jinx Ever

by DJ Gallo / August 10, 2010
In what many are calling the worst “Madden Jinx” yet, all 5.5 million people who purchased this year’s edition of the game have reportedly died.

The supposed jinx – which in the past has delivered various levels of doom to cover subjects such as Marshall Faulk, Daunte Culpepper, Michael Vick, Ray Lewis, Donovan McNabb, Shaun Alexander, Vince Young and Troy Polamalu – is usually contained to the cover subject.But clearly Drew Brees is not the victim of the Madden 11 curse because he is still alive.

Hospitals across the country began reporting high numbers of unexplained fatalities in the early morning hours after stores began selling the game – many among seemingly healthy young men aged 16-35. By the mid-morning, with the death toll skyrocketing into the millions, a working theory was developed: the Madden curse had turned on its consumers. And by early evening it was confirmed: all 5.5 million who died owned copies of Madden 11.

“It seems the focus of the jinx moved from the player pictured on the game to the little E at the bottom left of the front cover – a little E that stands for Everyone,” said President Obama. “A game rating that was intended to be welcoming to all instead welcome 5.5 million of our citizens into eternal rest.”

The five-plus million who died were stricken with severe strokes or brain aneurysms during the brightly colored, flashy intro into the game.

“All those flashing lights and photos, while exciting, when paired with the power of the Madden curse were too powerful for their brains to process and they essentially exploded,” said Robert Monsanta, Cook County (Illinois) chief coronoer.

Shawn Scott, the lead programmer of Madden Football at EA Sports, says that while tragic, the 5.5 million deaths give his job a new focus.

“We strive to improve the game every year, but sometimes that’s hard, to be honest,” said Scott. “But now for next year we’ll make it our goal: don’t kill everyone. So I think it’s all up for us from here. And I’m excited about the high percentage of first-time buyers we’ll have for Madden 12.”

Re: Madden 2011

Does anybody know how I can clear cap penalties in franchise mode? I'm gettin frustrated because I traded McNabb, Haynesworth, McIntosh, and others before my first season and now it's after my first season just after the draft, and I have 10 draft picks but nowhere near enough room to sign them. The cap is set at somewhere like 160 mil but I have 76 mil in cap penalties that is just f'n my plans up. I already restructured the big cap hit guys like Orakpo, Landry, T.Will, etc. and released dead weight like Kemoeatu and Rabach, and I just can't figure it out. Am I really going to be stuck with 76 mil in cap penalties until next offseason? Shits crazy.

Re: Madden 2011

When you first start a franchise you can turn off the cap. Not sure if you can do it during a franchise, I'll check.

Oh I already checked that, you can turn it off at the start but you can't turn it off once you're in. It's making me regret turning it on lol, and idw to have to restart my franchise just so I won't have to deal with all the stupid cap penalties.

EDIT: nevermind. I found a way to do it. I kept lookin at various madden sites online until I found one that said all I have to do is go into a game with a roster hole, set the fill roster option to cpu and it would ask me before the game if I wanted to clear cap penalties in order to sign somebody from free agency to fill the hole on my roster. Did that and now I have a cool 75ish mil in cap space.
