That's why we're all posting to and reading this board - we need our football fix! You know what works every time? Take your son or daughter (or neice/nephew/neighbor's kid) out in the backyard and teach him/her one play a day - practice it every day, adding a new one each day. Before you know, the season has begun and your kid knows your decades-old high school playbook by heart!

I'm pretty sick of this also.....Baseball doesn't get good until Sept/Oct. Hey but if you think about it, it's only 3 weeks away.


As far as Madden I'm in my 21st year as owner of my franchise. Patrick Ramsey is my head coach, and Jesse Armstead is my D-Coordinator. Kinda sad, but it keeps me entertained.

I'd be playing Madden 2 or atleast something on my Ps2 if it hadn't broke down a little over a month ago

Paders?? How come you like the Paders?? Just woundering. I live in SoCal and only know about 4 Paders fans.

I'm in season 8 of my PS2 franchise, and I got through about the same on the gamecube. Herm Edwards was my HC but he retired after 3 straight rings, guess he got bored. Brett Favre is my HC and Brad Johnson is my OC.

I've liked the Padres since I lived in San Diego 91-94. They were the first proffesional team I'd seen play live and ever since then I've followed the team and hated every other team in the NL West except when the D-Backs beat the Yankees, lol. I like the smaller market teams and I couldn't help but root for a guy a lot like Darrel Green in Tony Gwynn. Plus its pretty fun to hear Hell's Bells come on whenever Hoffman comes in to pitch.

Whenever I get to season 8 or so in Franchise I start from scratch. anybody else ever do a fantasy draft in the game? I've done it a few times to keep it from getting boring.

yeah I've done a fantasy draft a few times, it's a lot of fun to build your own team.

i've done up to 13 seasons, but not that many... I play on PC and download Struttdaddy's rosters from football-gaming.com to play some exhibition with our current team, he updates them ever week or so and so they are current through the rookie draft, trades and free agency. Makes me feel good to be able to kinda 'preview' my skins :-)

matty, i play with 15minute quarters... difficulty doesn't make a huge difference, i'm talking about setting AI vs AI matches...

i also made a team of straight 100s and a team of straight 1s... those scores ending up in the 1000 to 0 to 2500 to 0 range

Here's a suggestion for a diversion during this time of year. Go to the racetrack - or one of the off-track emporiums - and dabble in a bit of horseracing.

Matty, I'm still trying to find time to get up to Saratoga for the meet there in August but unless a miracle happens, I'm not going to make it. If I do, we have to have a beer ... or two ... or three ...

For our SoCal brethern, find your way to DelMar in August.
