Introduce Yourself

Post by GBDawg1 on Sun 01 Nov 2009, 5:22 pm

Being a new forum, there's only a handful of us who know each other (and only in cyberspace) so please use this thread to introduce yourself and talk about your interests and so on.

hi guys im new to this forum but like what i see so far,im new to madden online i started in 09 and was rubbish after about 30 games i was 5-25 so decided it was time to improve so after getting some tips from the guys who were beating me up i got a little better and finnished up about 65-60 i am currently level6 in madden10 but should be higher if it wasnt for dc glitchers they are everywhere i havnt had a loss to a glitcher but this is the main reason for trying to get into a franchise so i know a least games will get finished.
im a big rams fan but play with the steelers if i was good id play with the rams.

Well done for getting this thread going stlr13. For the record, we're all new to this forum because at the time of writing it's only 8 days old!

Anyway, I've been playing Madden for years, but on the PC - this year is the first year I've played it on another platform and also the first year I've played it online. I didn't play it at all last year, because EA Sports ditched us pc gamers and the last Madden they made was 08. After the CEO promising that there would be a Madden 10 on pc - guess what? Shafted again! So it was a case of sticking with the PC version - and there are some clever people out there who were making modifications & rosters, uniforms and so on to keep the game up to date as best they could (that's what I liked about the pc version - that fact it could be "modded". For example, I had a patch downloaded that replaced the music with the NFL on Fox theme for football games, plus the NFL logos and so on. Can't do any of that stuff with the PS - you just rely on EA to do the updates.

Anyway, I'm enjoying the PS now, even if I'm not that good. Live in Northampton; probably older than all of you; been a Northampton Town season ticket holder since 1994; go to Cleveland just about every year to watch the Browns (God knows why). Work in the shipping industry; 3 kids (all boys) and have strong views on how American football should be played.

I've already met some good people in other franchises I'm in (and some assholes too) and this is my first stab at running a franchise. I hope it will be a success and that we don't get a lot of people who quit after a couple of losses; I'm planning to be in this for the long haul and I hope those who have joined so far will too. Remember, it's only a game, not life and death and to me this forum is just as important as playing the game itself. I hope you all enjoy the site and I'll try to keep it as up-to-date as time allows - and if anyone has any ideas for topics, feel free to start new threads and if there are any features you would like added, I'll try to add them if it's possible (I am no computer geek I can assure you!).

Hello.

I'm Jaimie based down on the south coast of England near Brighton.
Lived here for a long time now, having been born in London and via three years in Abu Dhabi.

Started getting into the NFL back in the 90's with good old Gary Imlach on Channel 4. Followed the Vikings initailly as I also have Swedish roots.

Lost a bit of interest for a few years, but that was fired up again four years ago when I met my current girlfriend whom hails from Philadelphia.

Now obviously I'm an Eagles/Phillies/76ers fan. Saw a Phillies game last year and will be in Philly for Thanks Giving this year for the Redskins game at the Linc.! Can't wait.

Played Madden since around 06/07 I guess, I'm very average at it, but love the game.

I'm also a big supporter of Brighton & Hove Albion, try to keep fit-ish and work in architecture.

Thats all folks. Looking forward to the franchise and a bit og banter on here.

Cannot believe there is a Brighton and Hove Albion fan on a random Madden online franchise forum....

I live in London now, but moved to Brighton from Dublin when I was 5 and lived there for about 16 years. I miss the good old days of Zamora knocking them in for fun, but when we were in the dizzy heights of the championship....

I've been playing Madden since '05 (or whichever version it was where they first added the hitstick. best update of all time), and it somewhat took over our house at uni. Since uni though I've been playing NCAA for a change of scenary, first time I've bought Madden since the the '08 version.... Massively keen to get this franchise underway!

Hi everyone, I'm Stuart from Oban in scotland.
I've been playing Madden since around 2000 back when it was on the pc.Madden 04 was definately my favourite game.Got up to around 2015 in that one with my relocated team. The mexico city express.

I'm a big Green Bay fan ever since I started watching NFL in 2002.
Notice that I played the games in 2000 and only started watching 02.I didn't have a clue what I was doing.

Well thats me

Hi everyone, I´m Frank from Würzburg, Germany. I´m 24 years old and hat to quit playing football like a year ago because of an knee injury. So now the only thing left is madden lol. I have been playing it since like 2005 though. I guess i´m a pretty decent player who just wants to have fun enjoying the online franchise mode and this one here looks really cool. So i´m really looking forward to meet you guys on the field.
I´m a huge Steelers fan, i guess because i do have family and friends in the pittsburgh area, but since they are already gone, i´ll give it a shot with the jets.
so good luck everyone and have fun
