XBox Madden League

Please sign up here for the XBox Madden league, and be sure to include your Xbox Live Gamertag.

Dr Drayne, FRPLG and FL SKINS, I know you guys are already in. Everybody else, I need your Gamertags!

I'm setting up a Warpath Madden League for XBoxers on easports.com. I'd like to have at least 8 teams, though right now it looks like we've only got 7 Xbox users. We'll see how many players we can get by New Year's and go from there.

Here are the parameters I'd like to have for this league:

*At least 8 teams
*At least a 16-round regular season
*3-day rounds
*Fairplay rules
*Ranked games
*Unique teams (no Redskins v Redskins matchups!)
*All-pro difficulty level
*4-minute quarters

I was thinking we could select teams based on a randomly determined draft order. Basically, I'd put all the names in a hat and draw them for draft order. I think we'd have to do the draft here, and it would basically be on the honor system that everyone would have to select the team they drafted when they actually join the league.

I'll send you a message if I'm on, FRPLG. I'd definitely like to get some practice games in before the league starts up.

League is formed!

Alright, fellas, the Warpath Madden League for XBox is officially formed, and we are ready to begin the inaugural season as soon as everybody picks their teams.

Krills, I still need your gamertag so I can add you to the invite list!

Unfortunately, we only had 7 people throw their names in the hat, so we'll be fielding a 7-team league this go-round. Hopefully, we'll get a couple more seasons under our belts before Madden 2006 comes out next August, and we should get a better turn out for those seasons.

We'll have a 14-round season, wherein everybody plays each other twice, followed by a 2-round playoff. The 3 teams with the best overall record make the playoffs; the team with the best overall record gets an automatic bid to the championship game.

Rounds will have a 3-day limit, and there will be no byes, so we're looking at a 42-day regular season.

Games will be ranked, with 4-minute quarters, All-Pro difficulty, fatigue, injuries and fairplay rules.

Since everyone here is a Redskins fan, I've decided to draw names at random to determine the team selection order. Here is the order:

1. Kingerock
2. Dr. Drayne
3. Krills
4. sactre77
5. FL SKINS
6. FRPLG

Unfortunately, the league formation process requires me to pick a team before it will create the league, so I picked the Lions. Hope that's okay.

Kingerock, please start the team draft by posting a reply to this thread with your team selection. The remaining players will post their selections in order.

Once you have made your team selection here, I will add you to the league invite list and you may login to the league page.

Let's get this thing rolling! I'd like to start the season this week.

Thanks Joe. I'm in.

Couple things:

- If we play each team twice that will only be a 12 game schedule.

- for picking teams I was thinking maybe we should get rid of some teams that we've all played a thousand times (Eagles, Pats, Vikes, Falcons...). I'm tired of playing these teams and it would be fun if we all had "average" teams (like the Lions). Anyways doesnt really matter just a suggestion.

Ooops!

You're right. I'll modify it so we play a 12-game schedule, plus the playoffs.

As far as the limited team options, I agree with you to a certain extent. I'm sick of playing against the Eagles, Vikes, Falcons, Pats and Colts, too. But at the same time, I've seen just about all the tricks that people do with those teams, and I've figured out how to beat all of them, so if someone wants to use those teams, I welcome the challenge.

If anyone wants to second the motion regarding limited team options, we can put up a poll, I guess. I'm okay with a vote.

Ya Joe doesn't really matter. I'm used to playing those teams too so it wouldn't be the end of the world.

Gonna start scouting out a team for myself.

kingerock, you have until 5pm tomorrow (1/4/05) to make your pick. If you haven't made your pick by then, it will be forfeited to Dr. Drayne, and the draft will proceed. Starting at 5pm tomorrow, each owner will have 12 hours to make their pick before their draft position is forfeited.

Dr. Drayne (Crazy Canuck), you're on the clock!

kingerock missed the window for the first pick.

Dr. Drayne, you have until 5 am tomorrow (1/5/05) to select your team. Please post your selection in this thread. If it's not posted by 5 am, Krills can proceed with his selection.

kingerock and Dr. Drayne may make their picks at any time, but Krills officially goes on the clock once Dr. Drayne has made his pick.
Let's get this thing rolling, fellas!
