ROMANOWSKI makes another SUPERB tackle on RICKY WILLIAMS - every time he comes pounding off right-tackle there ROMO is waiting for him, waiting to knock him to the ground! I don't know what "dietary supplements" ROMO is on, but they seem to be working!FINS are going to have to punt the ball again!

Hey Portis, when you're creating players this time around, can you take name suggestions from the FFA? No more boring names like Brad Smith, please.

He creates players? Creating players in an actual simulation is a questionable tactic at best. It's too easily exploited.Also, Portis, you claimed that you are at a disadvantage because you don't do training camp. This is INCORRECT. The CPU teams don't do training camp, so you are just staying at their level. People that DO use training camp are gaining an advantage over the CPU.You mission here is neat, and I do it myself with Madden from time to time, but you are using VERY QUESTIONABLE TACTICS. Unless you lay off these 'cheats' you are employing, your accomplishments are MEANINGLESS.

He doesn't create them; he just renames them when he drafts them.

Right, the game always gives new players really lame names like Randy Rotolo or whatever (several ones continually crop up again and again - I suspect these names of being those of the programmers). I just rename them according to which player in the 2004 draft class they most resemble.

So are you gonna let us name them or what? Or at least name them after posters in the FFA. Like an offensive lineman named fatguy inalittlecoat. Dude, I'm not asking for much here. Throw me a bone.

I'm tempted to buy Madden now just so I can rename a prospect "Jericho Smoo".

OK, nominate yourselves for different positions and when we draft the next bunch of rookies then we'll see about it!
Please name your next punter "Greg Peens".
I 2nd this nomination :yes:

FB, anyone? Zack Crockett will be retiring soon. We need someone hard-hitting, and yet dependable and solid.

Wouldn't Fullback Fro be the obvious candidate?
:wall: too slow..I guess that makes me a lineman (although I'm a little svelte to be one).

Portis are the 7 year contracts going to hurt you more cap-wise than in the older version of Madden? I always thought that was a tremendous flaw - They should make you have signing bonuses and make you take the hit if you cut a guy or he retires.

I have to agree, this thread is great with this one exception. The abuse of the contracts and no pro-rated signing bonuses, excellerated cap hits for cut\retired players is very flawed.
