Madden 2011 Sim League It's essentially a forum mock but, we'll be using Madden 2011 to get results. Looking to do atleast 5+ years on it. Your choice on rebuilding for the future, or trying to win now.


As GM/Coach you will be setting...


Depth Chart
Team Gameplan
Trade Block
Free Agent Signings
Draft Picks


Additional Info:

Roster is updated, so Housh is on the Ravens, and everyone is where they should be.

First thing we will do is a trade block, and have a couple days of trade. I will set up a Trade area with rules on how to trade and all.

After the season ends, I will go through each step of the offseason with each team, giving the FA's, how much they want, etc. This will take awhile as on Madden 2011 what the starting point doesnt always work.

Draft picks can be traded, but will be limited to that years picks. Unless people want to add a pick next year, which we would have to figure out compensation for (can't trade future picks in the game)

Trades can also be offered to CPU teams, but realize the chances of a trade working is slim, and Ill set a limit on how many times you can offer a CPU team trades per sim. Also, no "My 1st for CPU teams 1st" Just because you think they will do worse then you. The trade will have to work for the CPU like it will for you.

The draft will be consisted of the first two years of players I got from NCAA 2011 Draft classes. Ill set up the list, and you have the option of getting info.


Position changes, I think we will have to establish how to do this, because as you know some OLB's once moved to DE become insanely good. I feel like this should be donw only if your switching D-Alignments (switching from a 3-4 to 4-3)

About trades:
I will not be on alot, because of work, so please send trade proposals to fenikz and princefielder28, whichever is on. If they like it, they will tell you its good and they will send to me to be posted. That way you now right then if a trade goes through.

The Season:

16 games, 4 preseason games, and playoffs. I will turn off trade deadline, but will figure out a actual deadline, probably after the 2nd sim during season.

No Trade List? We decide

I will post updates on player stats, team stats, Standings, All-Star rosters, players of the month, award winners, etc

No Injuries or Injuries on? We decide

GMs/Coaches can tweak their rosters, game plan at any time...just make a post, and I'll make the changes

Free Agents can be signed during the season, if you have the necessary funds (the list will we posted)

Updated the GM list, and I will pick a team after we get about 9ish more people to join, because I dont feel like being the Saints and winning all the time ;)

Also, feel free to comment on the No Trade List.

Ravens1991
09-14-2010, 11:58 AM
Me, baltimore ravens

Draft King
09-14-2010, 11:59 AM
I'll take Atlanta. As for the no trade list, if it's going to be small just the elite guys. Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Adrian Peterson, Darrelle Revis, DeMarcus Ware, Troy Polamalu, Jared Allen, Andre Johnson. Might have missed some but those names came to my head.

zachsaints52

Couldn't go wrong with any of the 3.

But Ill be back on later with the Salary Cap of every team, and once I get 15 people I will set out each teams players salaries and how long.

There will be a time for all of that for sure. Once I get 3 or 4 more people I will actually send in a message everyones roster by salary, then there will be a trade block/ adjustment period, then Preseason.

Yeah, these rosters are from the beginning of the season, he'd probably got bumped up after that game though.

Also no injuries to players before, so everyone will be healthy.

So injuries/ no injuries?

comahan
09-15-2010, 10:35 PM
I say yes to Injuries, makes it a lot more interesting as a GM, having to deal with that kind of stuff.

My favorite madden franchise ever, Madden 04, I was the Cowboys and lost the mighty Troy Hambrick to injury, and made a trade for Najeh Davenport as a result. Najeh in that franchise remains my favorite madden player ever.

Madden was the reason I became a Saints fan haha. Because of playing madden, black jerseys #83 Stallworth. He was one of the fastest players and Aaron Brooks to Stallworth all game.


I was leaning towards injuries as well.

I like injuries like comahan said it is more challenging.

zachsaints52
09-16-2010, 10:41 AM
Injuries will be on.


But as for salaries itll be tommorrow guys, Im sorry for the wait but it takes awhile just to get half a teams. I got online thinking maybe the games salaries are like real life, btu real life Cutlers makeing like 14 mil and on the game he is making 5.38 :/

Its gonna take away to hand do it haha.

You mean new ratings? Yes, I will update those after preseason, and bring out the list of rookies then...



Right now I am sending everyones salary charts, so please go to the roster page and post yours the way you want.

Tonight and tomar will be for trade talk and to set roster positions and depth charts. Tomorrow I will give a list of FA's and which teams need what position.

Also, be aware of when trading your player your oplayers salary bonus affects your money for next year as well. As it is nice to get alot of the best players, better to not over do it or not able to get anyone the next year.

I will now give everyone 3 trades to offer the CPU, any team you want. First come first serve, so send them in ASAP. Meaning if your wanting to get a player that you know other teams would want, sending in the trades first would mean you ahve first shot at them. But if I feel like a trade is too unfair or it doesnt make snese for the other team, then I will deny ti and its still counted as a try. I mean, why try when you know its not fair or it won't work?

zachsaints52
09-18-2010, 07:10 PM
Also I wont have enough room in my inbox to keep them, so I dont save a copy of your rosters. So please keep them or put them on the rosters page.
