    Yip, time has come for me, due to various and recent occasions, ro hang up my madden cleats for the forseeable. I'v had fun, I've had rants( many of ) and I'v had hundreds of great games against great opponents. Most of all I've met many a good friend on here and that you can't take away from anyone. Play hard play strong but most of all, just have fun. It's a game, not a living. Brian.

    I don't find the defensive side too hard on this game - sure there is a tendency to get beat every now and then on big plays but in the end it all comes down to situational awareness. A few tips I would have for a few guys out there. 1. Be aware of the situation - 3rd and Long is most likely going to be a pass play - pass commit (L2/LT + up on the right stick) make sure you're not in base get those DB's out on the field. I generally follow the rule of thumb of 3 WR = Nickle; 4 WR = Dollar/Dime ; Anytime the distance is 15+ Quarters. If you're getting burnt by a TE consider treating as a WR so he has a DB on him with the speed. 2. Alternate your coverages; too often people stay in zone - cover 3 & cover 2 and alternate between the two. Whilst this isn't necessary bad, however against better players who know how to beat zone this will get carved up by flooding those zones. Mix in some Man/Cover 1/Man Blitzes 3. Don't be afraid to get burnt, too often people will play conservative and stay in 4 man rushes for 90% of the game. Mix it try sending that extra LB or two - the idea is you can never let the offense get comfortable - you might get burnt once or twice but your setting your opponent up. For instance I would send blitzes from the left every now and then which would open the flats - I'll give my opponent those easy reads to start the game then take them away on the 2nd drive. The 1st 2-3 drives are the mot important. 4. Coache adjustments - don't be afraid to use them at the start of your game - if you have physical DB's get them to play the man, if you're opponent is pass happy switch on the aggressive pass rush.

    I actually think I am after Berty and Riggler had gone on to pastures new, well FIFA for Berty I joined about the same day/week as Berty (so we were both kinda the longest at the time, before he left the madden leagues) when ToffDuff and AndyL recruited us for what was then CGN and we only had the one league with no scouting or draft changes back then as you all know, that league was Madden PFL and Madden Bowl III iirc (The first two seasons only had 10 players all in). I feel priviledged to have been a part of the these leagues for that length of time, watching the league, change and grow to what it is today, as well as the joy and laughter I've had with all you guys at one time or another, including the meet ups. I am sad at leaving and I shall miss the games and the fun, the banter and of course, drafting the Bears every year, but you guys are continuing and that's more important to the league. Catch you all on the flip side.

    Sorry to hear you leaving us buddy. Will no doubt see you around in the forum's. I like most take it to the extreme the amount of time dedicated to Madden. Totally understand the need to step back especially after what's sounds like a garbage year. All the best in every walk of life pal. Craig

    Moving away from the Irish let me present @Stefennn the man with the Beard which has no rivals. Pros - Blocking machine - A beard you could only dream of having yourself - Pretty good at running the ball - Has a pretty decent team - Capable Pash Rusher - Not Irish #irishtakedown Cons - Will make that one block that will set up a 90 yard rush TD but you'll end up forgetting the 10 other times he failed. - Defensive coverage isn't the best. - Route Running or lack therof. Best Position: Head Coach/Defensive Co-Ordinator Role - Offensive Line (Exclusively) & Defensive Line

    Next up it's @rugbydan92 Pros: - Juke master; this guys skills with that right stick is crazy good. - Can actually run routes with the half back and does them well. - Possibly the best RB I've played with thus far. - Great at getting pressure using the defensive line. - If he calls for a toss; don't ignore him chances are his taking it to the house. Cons - Still doesn't know the rules - clock management is the worst of all time. - Can't cover for s**t! - Gets confused which team he needs to throw to when his the QB. - Accurate passer - to the other team - Don't ask him to run routes with the WR gets confused easily. - Irish #irishtakeover Best Position: Head Coach (doesn't have the team good enough for the dance) Role - Running Back extrodionare (seriously best RB I've ever played with s**te at everything else mind) & Defensive Line

    Starting things off with the Scout report let me present @LiquidSolid999 Pros: - Provided his not in coverage can play good defense - Defensive Line only. - Lays some good blocks from time to time - Relatively reliable running the ball - Defense play calling isn't too bad Cons - Never let him play QB - EVER - Picks for Days - Can't cover at Linebacker or Safety - actually just plain can't cover - Doesn't stay on his route - Can't hold onto a catch - If makes a play it will be the only thing he talks about for the whole night; not the 20 other times when his f**ked up Best Position: Head Coach Role: Defensive Line - Offensive Line & Running Back Whose next?

    I wouldn't get too disheartened about failing to stop 3rd down. If people are anything like me, they'll save up their best plays for 3rd down. Meaning that they are really hard to stop. I think all you can do is keep making players have to convert 3rd down. The more you make them get, the more chance they'll exhaust their best plays or you'll start to read what they're doing on 3rd down. So only advice would be keep making them use all 3 downs to get their yards. Don't give away easy yards on 1st and 2nd down. You never know, whilst you're tearing your hair out thinking your giving up loads of 3rd downs, the other guy could be sat there thinking that he's running out of plays to go to on 3rd down. My defence has been very poor this year though, so I'm not really in a position to give advise on specific plays to run on 3rd down.

    There’s a new podcast series out from the 30 for 30 series, similar to the tv docs but audio based. One of the first season is looking at the origins of Madden, how it got made and how Madden got involved etc Really good listen, as are the rest even if you’re not into the sports they cover!

    Some of you may not be aware that PFL is part of a network of 3 sites, a FIFA site and a Pro Evo site if you could follow that link and vote for Goal No3 please Up for goal of the month on one of these large PES fan sites against a couple of lowlifes from another site that has basically ripped off every idea we’ve implemented on PEN/FLM. Goal number 3 lads if you could be so kind. Cheers

    Woohoo - already better than @krudler42 well on my way to paying off a mortgage YTD Record: 1-1 Winnings: -£1.70 ( Total Bank: £48.3) Next tip: £10 - Borussia Dortmund v Tottenham Hotspur - Dortmund to win @ 2.05 - Returns £10.50 Tottenham will surely rest a few players here after the weekends performance. Dortmund still have a slight chance of getting in - think Dortmund will have a few players returning but still aren't at full strength but I can't see Tottenham winning this one without Kane.

    So, after each game I've taken a few minutes to examine each play and see where I f**ked things up.. What I'm finding and last nights game against Ken was a prime example, I cannot defend the pass. 6 catches for nearly 300 yards with all of them going for TD's. my DBs were no where near the ball bar one where Garcon trucked them. My run D is odd, I can bottle guys up for chunks of the game but they always then seem to break off 1 or 2 big runs (like 70/80 yarders). I've got a lot of XP to use on my defense, I'm guessing i should be using this on PRC, AWR, Man and zone for my DBs?

    Been to a few of those "International" Buffets before, you always find that one person though that has the biggest mountain of seafood - speaking of another rule/tactic - another one I've heard before is always go for the seafood first
