Last Season?

Last Season?

Post by GBDawg1 on Tue 12 Jun 2018, 11:08 pm

Out of this week's games (Week 6) 5 were played and 9 were simmed. That's not enough for me to run this league and I expect this will get even worse when the World Cup kicks off this week.

Unless I see some improvement during the course of this season, which I doubt I will, like Arsene Wenger, I will ride off into the sunset at the end of the season and that will mean that the EAFL, after 35 seasons, will cease to exist, as will this site.

I appreciate that people have other commitments, which I understand. However, a lot don't seem to realsise that I have other commitments too, but have been prepared to compromise those to an extent in order to run this league. The owners appear to be telling me that they are not bothered whether this league carries on or it doesn't. That may be the case and it may be that this league, good though it was for several years, has run its course and it's time to call it a day.

It's really up to you, but as I said at the start, unless people start making an effort to a) arrange their games and b) play them, this will be the end of the EAFL era.

This is potentially bad news as I haven't been here that long and I've tried to arrange my games, although because of my irregular hours sometimes it can be a bit awkward, but I do try to make the effort. 
However I agree that it is apparent that some people can't be bothered and I had heard that this gets worse normally in the last season. It will be a real shame if the league closes. Judging by the number of people who have read the post and have nothing to say, maybe they don't care one way or the other, but when the new NFL season starts and Madden 19 is launched, they might look back on their ambivalence towards the league and have some regret. 
I really hope it keeps going.

I pray that this league stays alive for many more years. Like GeordieAlfie I've not been around that long but I've enjoyed my experience so far. Would be a shame and a travesty if this league dies.

i am in same boat at Veeebs, to be honest i do admit i didnt organise my game this week despite the Chiefs manager tagging me in a post. 
When i did tried tp organise my game the week before with the Falcons manager and he was suppose to message me but didnt but i know our working patterns don't match up so it can be awkward.

Maybe it is because it is the last season and ppl have come in to the league to teams who have been poorly managed by the CPU in the past few seasons and it can be frustrating.

I struggle with getting notifications and therefore i miss when i get tagged in comments , i am use to facebook where the alert is in my face.
I am gonna make more of effort to check the message board without relying on my email to let me know.

I understand what some of you new owners are saying about the state of your team's and what past owners and the CPU have done to them. It is frustrating when your team looks and plays like the real life Browns(sorry Dawg) but that's where the challenge is. 

This is the only league I'm in and if it folds(and I pray it doesn't) then I won't even bother buying the game any more.

Come on guys, let's pick up the pace.

4 simmed games that could have been played.
1 forced win owing to a d/c
2 simmed cpu v cpu games

If people are not answering requests to play, then tell me and I will put them on AP. If they keep missing games because they can't be bothered to play, then I'll kick them out.

I understand where you are coming from Dawg , and too that extent I owe an apology as I must admit playing the cpu games I find very boring and have let some of these sim over the last season. I will make an effort to make sure I play all match ups moving forward. I think I speak for others in saying this is a well run league and one we all hope continues for another 34 seasons. I think a collective effort needs to be made by us all to uphold the standards that have been set by you and some of the long standing members over the years.

I have the occasional (and more!) moan, but I really enjoy this league. It seems to be the same people as well.

Don't do it!!  I get married in 6 weeks and my plan after that is buying another PS4 and coming back, without that motivation I won't bother

The league is the best around, always has been and always will be, unfortunate that i think we just hit a point where real life took over so many of us around the same time but the core is still mostly there!

I'll be back ...

Not sure you'll be on the list with that signature of yours. However, you are in his neck of the woods, so maybe.

Absolutely no chance with that signature ... you'd probably throw bottles at the wedding car anyway and then blame it on someone else Razz

I'm in, switching teams was just the shot in the arm my enthusiasm for playing needed, one of the leagues Blitzburgh and I play in use telegram instead of facebook and I must say it works extremely well for arranging games and making announcements, there's also a fair bit of banter and live streams are posted so you can look in on exciting games or scout an opponent, it's a little more dynamic and they still use a forum for sign ups etc, it puts the community straight at hand on your mobile.

Nosing around looking for key dates in the NFL, I noticed that final 53 man rosters are sent to the NFL on 1st September, being late to the CFM league party in 17 and 18 I'd guess that any sim league would start after this date, will that be the case for EAFL?

It certainly would. We always take about a month or so off and wait until the final roster is issued - and normally patch 2 as well.

Madden is out rather early this year - normally it's around the late August Bank Holiday weekend (not for you I know). Why they've brought it forward this year, I have no idea. Suppose it gives people more chance to get used to the game before the big kick off.
