    I joined up. Little confused about some of the connected career stuff, but guess we'll learn it as we go. Anyone know if we have to manage our cap, and do we spend experience points in the franchise? Lot of stuff different than the last time we did this. lol

    Yes. There is a salary cap and you spend experience points. What else are you confused about?

    Confused is maybe the wrong word, more just things I have to get used to.

    I joined. Didn't realize y'all were just taking over the existing coaches, I created my own. Poor Philbin didn't even get a chance.

    I feel like he's older than Tannehill and would take away precious playing time from him :) Plus I can't stand Eli.

    HOWEVER, for the right price, and this breaks my heart, I'd hesitantly be willing to part with Mr.Naanee. I know I know, we aren't supposed to trade legends and superstars but to the right package I'd consider it.

    So that when we sim the preseason no one suffers unnecessary/stupid injury's. Injuries will be back on when the season starts.

    As soon as everyone has their cuts made and is ready. Also if you want to play the first preseason game feel free. Once everyone has all their cuts down to the 53 man I'll sim to week one. And just so you all know you can log on to maddencareer.com or something like that and you can run your team from there. You can make cuts, sign FA and etc.

    I was cutting players last night. Down to 56 players myself. Tough decision on the final 3 cuts.

    I've cut my roster down to 53 and played my first preseason game. Even though it was just CPU preseason, my Chiefs team played a lot like my old Jaguars team, holding the Cardinals to about 30 yards and no points. I haven't played with a cap in forever so I'm going have to keep that in mind when I'm wheeling and dealing.

    Game seemed to play pretty fast with 7 min quarters and 20 second accelerated clock. That's just me though, what's everyone else think?

    I played my preseason game and set my team to ready but forgot to make my cuts. I will cut my roster down tonight. I am able to access the madden website from my phone, but don't think you can make cuts from phone.

    On another note I will be placing a few guys on the trading block if anyone is interested. Looking for secondary help, picks and a starting RB

    Nick Fairley or Corey Williams
    Kevin Smith
    Jeff Backus or Gosder Cherilus

    I am willing to part with almost anyone and looking forward I making some trades.

    I'm not a huge fan of the accelerated clock, but I left the time to essential what the default for online play is.
    I happen to be shopping Ben Tate who would provide you with a starting running back. Let me know if you are interested.

    I am shopping either Jonathan Stewart or DeAngelo Williams. I need WR, pass rush and DB help. I want to play with both to see who fits my offense more.

    I might be interested in Stewart and Tate but i have to wait until I get on the game to check stats and contracts.

    I know someone mentioned earlier we don't trade with CPU. Can we trade for players the CPU puts on the trading block? I agree with not offering them trades, but trade block seems like it should be fair game.

    Damnit Chris, don't ruin this for me.

    Also UCF I have the game set to allow only human trades. If there were enough interest in allow CPU trading even if only when a player is already on the block I'd change it. However I think the concern is cheating the CPU and getting a great deal that isnt fair.

    Alright no problem. I was just messing around on the website and saw CPU players on the block and didn't know how that worked.

    If we have enough humans, I dont like trading with CPU....too much drama would occur imo

    Gotcha, it just felt really quick. I think in the other franchise we did what 7 minutes with no accelerated? Not that we have to copy it, just comparing. I think 10 min with accelerated clock or 7 min without gives you a little longer time to do things without it dragging on. Just my own 2 cents.

    Which players, haven't seen that?

    lol On the Top Stories there's a picture of Pete Carrol with his hands up, looking like he's thinking WTF? and says he was fired. The stories/twitter thing is a nice touch. I kinda hate I didn't make my own coach, could have used game face and had my sexy mug strolling along the sidelines.

    Agree with Sick on CPU trading.

    On maddencareer.com under "my team" there is a section of all available players. If you sort to "trade" it gives a list of all "tradeable" players.

    They did finally fix cpu trading so you can't completely mug them in a trade. A lot of players can't be traded for at all and others you have to overpay. I'm not petitioning to have cpu trading, but its been completely overhauled.

    Also, I don't know if we should make our own threads for available players but I'm looking to trade David Garrard, Steve Slaton, Tony McDaniel, Jimmy Wilson, Sean Smith and Tyrone Culver.

    faux-Skip Bayless getting in on the action, the news and twitter section will entertain me a lot more than it should.

    Depending on scheme, players overall ratings change which is a little different. Someone else and myself could look at a player and see a difference between his overall if we have different schemes.

    So if i am running a 3-4, my LB might be worth less to someone running a 4-3 ? cool.

    Yeah, whatever scheme you have set for that position (say speed running back versus power, or west coast versus pocket passer QB) will alter what their overall shows up as. Something to keep in mind I guess when trading. I wish they'd put in parenthesis besides the OVR the universal OVR.
