Guys - i'll be taking a break from M12 till M13 after witnessing a quite spectacular match versus Noto's Lions.
He played a good game and fully deserved the win but i've decided the constant 'Madden sillyness' has just overtaken my logic! This isn't a case of 'rage quit' or anything daft like that just my ageing brain can only cope with so much weirdness - damn - i'll have to take up Fifa now!!!
Unfortunately i cant do what Jensua has done and hang in there till M13 - respect to him for that.
So, keep playing tough and i'll pop in from time to time and hopefully return for M13.

I know exactly how you feel Bish and I don't blame you in the slightest. I too am just waiting it out till M13, M12 I feel is just a ridiculous game. I swear that the outcome of games are sometimes pre-determined and nothing you do can affect the outcome.
I'm not ashamed to say that I am average at best at Madden and most here are better than me, some by a long way. My strength when playing defense has always been stopping the run but last week Soxy absolutely destroyed me and he moved the ball with ease however he wanted. Fair play to him but it was like my team weren't even trying, nothing I could do pass rushing to get anywhere near Rodgers and the coverage was horrible. Fast forward one week and my D was 11 supermen! 7 Ints! 8 sacks! Guys were playing unreal. I felt like I was cheating.
It'll be a real shame not to have you here for the rest of the season but I totally understand how you feel. I hope you don't feel like I was playing outside the rules or running up the score either because I assure you that wasn't my intention.

oh no Bish, but i will promise you this Fifa will give you just as many tantrum fits (remeber that the referee in fifa will not blow the game over before the ball is at midtfield leading to sometimes insane minutes of extra time (just to give you one example).
Worst of all i feel that the commish might go the same way after i completely robbed him of a victory last night.
That said I hopw you will at least stick around the site and after getting some sleep (you are an old mand) you might have calmed down and decide to relive Mike Ditka as bears coach and I am not talking 85 bears Ditka I am talking Saints crazy Ditka.

I just voted myself onto the Coach Resignation Panel, and after much thought and deliberation, I have come to the decision that your resignation is NOT APPROVED! If only for the reason you are to be playing Fifa?? Wtf!! Man up!!!

Jensua is quite right about the excessive injury time in FIFA. There are more goals scored in the 45th and 90th minutes than at any other time. Also, the goalkeepers like letting in soft shots.
Standard of refereeing is appalling too. It's just another potential controller-breaking game (in fact the Euro 2012 update was the cause of my last broken one after being sunk by a 90th minute goal).
Oh and if you are tempted to get the Euro upgrade, forget about playing a multiplayer tournament with some mates. You can't do it.
