I think the best hope for both Ralph and I playing in the league from the same XBOX live account will be to hope that there are no Panthers-Ravens games scheduled this year.

Actually I think the Ravens could be this year's Dolphins.  Amazing defense and Jamaal Lewis running through everybody.  So that is not such a bad pick.  I agree that we should have the tournament before the league.  I'm still a little gun shy about the league after the last 2 years.  Last year we couldn't even finish an 8 team tournament during the real playoffs and Superbowl.  So I think we should warm up with the tournament first  Cool

Denog. - Bills
Pr0ner - Chiefs
Caveman - Panthers
LD - Raiders
Ralph W - Ravens

2.  Start date:  To Be Determined.  (if we wait for TML - maybe around Aug. 20 -  This should be discussed)

3.  Most likely we will begin the Tournament before the league begins.  See Poncho Memorial Thread for details.

4.  Even though we are taking the league seriously, don't forget to have FUN... that's why we're here.   :wink:

Hell yes I am serious - I bought a freakin' Xbox as well as Live to be in this thing!  Nobody answered my question directly about when this thing is starting, though.  I'm going to be without internet from July 30th-August 19th or so...I PRAY that isn't a problem.

The shame would be unbearable if I let you guys down.  That should be reason enough, in a tight community such as this, to keep people committed.  Otherwise I'm not sure the quitters would be welcome to participate in the future.

I'll be the Bucs, if you guys let me play.  I'm a newb to the series (and will probably get crushed), but will be picking this up tomorrow and would love to join the league.  My gonegold forum name is rowan, too.  Feel free to email me, as I check it several times a day.

I for one would be fine with that.  I'll go with whatever the majority says though smile

The tournament starts on August 8th, so that would give us time to finish it before the league starts.  And, I think using the tournament as a preseason tournament of sorts is a good idea!

I would be fine with waiting until TML can get back, if only to let the tourney finish up and make sure we are all still committed to this.

The Browns...They suck.  Managed to make the Detroit Lions look good.

Great games, TML.  I forgot to save my profile after our first two games so I only log an hour or so played and think I lost my records.  That sucks.

Man, this game has A LOT of buttons.

Actually I have been using them online and they are waaaaay better than they were last year.  Their' defense isn't too bad and Winslow gives them a solid tight end this year.

I am from Cleveland :wink:

The offensive line is where I really found problems.  Maybe Detroit's D line is just amazing this year.  TML and I tried it on "pro" rather than "all pro" so that might have had something to do with it.  Regardless, I was still blown out.

Well, I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to play in the league. Apparently, X-Box Live only allows one username per account. Since I live with my brother (Captain Caveman) and signed up for Live, I don't know how I would be able to get my own username. I suppose, of course, that I might be able to play under his name (i.e. he plays the Panthers' games and I play the Ravens' games, though both would be played under his username), but I'm not sure if ESPN will allow one username to control more than one team in a league.

I guess another option is to set up another Live account under my name (with a free two month code if I can find one), though I'm not sure if that would work either. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks.
