    LAME: Free Agent Draft TBA

    Post by TheDarkKnight50 on September 9th 2011, 1:25 am

    EA's rating 'czar' Donny Moore has announced that the roster update will be out Saturday sometime for 'offline' franchise. For online franchise it could be a few days afterwards. Needless to say this totally screws our schedule. For now the free agent draft is tentatively postponed until we hear when the official date is.

    With that said...since we have some more time to 'waste', should we roll with the 2011 NFL draft order or by team rating in Madden 12? Speak now or hold your peace...

    As I posted b4... Selfishly speaking... either way, my Cards have a high pick. Rationally
    speaking... the fairest way would be to make the FA draft order by Team Overalls (post roster update). As always, this is my humble opinion.

    I didn't think about that psycho. I'd also say draft order because of tie breakers with OVR would be hard to determine.

    Draft order, although I guess I won't be around for this damn thing anyhow. I will be taking my laptop with me so hopefully I can still stay connected to this shit one way or another.

    Hopefully someone will give me a rundown of all the dudes available once this bitch drops.

    Just saying, is the roster update gonna impact the league that much that we wait? I'm fine for whatever, but its a shame other leagues I'm in have gotten going and we're still waiting to even start, and then there's an FA draft as well too.

    I just think its a matter of folks here wanting the best lineups possible for their teams. And honestly right now, I dont mind the delay. On top of my planned vacation, a portion of my house got flooded and my storage unit got drenched. Pretty much lost everything I had in there. So the truth of the matter is worrying about a Madden game to start is pretty inconsequential. Its more the XML family and the guys we got here now that matter to me.

    I'd be about the same pick either way, but it makes WAY more sense to go by team OVR, why should the team with the crappy players that overachieved in real life be penalized by having to pick after teams with more talent? Plus, if a team has drastically improved themselves through trade, it wouldn't be fair to get a high draft pick on top of that. So go OVR with the tiebreaker being draft position.

    Hell yeah it's gonna impact it. I'd never play in a league that's started already, that'd be stupid.

    Fili if you can't wait a matter of 1-2 total weeks after the game starts out then maybe you should just play in your other leagues. Im just saying, bc we are going to be playing for the next year. I think a few days wait will be much worth it.

    Draft order makes the most logical sense.
