I have a weekly podcast on both YouTube and iTunes where we discuss Madden, MLB The Show and various other sports games, competitive gaming and real sports news. I'll use this thread to upload each new episode as they are posted online. Please use YouTube if you wish to leave any comments so we can keep the discussion all in one place. Thanks!
On my new weekly podcast, I sat down with Madden's Creative Director of gameplay Rex Dickson. We talked about the development cycle and the challenges of a yearly release, what goes into patches and tuners, Madden moving toward creating a "simulation" mode and much more. You can find the podcast below and you can also subscribe on iTunes here. Take a listen and leave a comment and let me know what you thought!
The reviews are in from many of the major outlets. Here is a compilation of all of the current reviews for Madden NFL 17. We will keep this list updated as new reviews are posted up to the launch of the game.
IGN - 8.6 | Full review
"Madden has finally found its comfort zone between the tackles, and offense and defense have reached a great balance. The community’s gameplay wishes were granted with a new focus on Franchise mode, led by the Play the Moments feature. Outside of its mood-killing commentators, Madden 17is just about everything we’ve been waiting for since EA Sports took full control of the NFL license. Football is back, and it’s only a yard or two short of becoming an all-time great."
Forbes - 7.75 |...

Please use this thread to set up a time to schedule your game. You may also use PM, Group Me, text, etc to do so. However, everyone must post in this thread within 12 hours of advance (the quicker the better). If you do not post, or post and disappear, your opponent may (up to the discretion of league leadership) be allowed to play the CPU or elect to have the game simmed. To avoid this happening, make sure to post in the scheduling thread and make it apparent that you are trying to get your game scheduled. The more active you are, the more info that you give and the more consistent you are in trying to schedule your games, the less likely you are to be placed on auto or have a game simmed.
Once you and your opponent have agreed upon a time, post the teams, date and time that you are playing in this thread. That is so that league leadership knows the game has been scheduled and so anyone can check and see when games are being played and plan accordingly if they want to watch....

Overall Grade: B+
The new season of Madden NFL is upon us. For some, the kickoff to #MaddenSeason is better than Christmas. There are new features to test out, new modes to experiences and new players on new teams to explore. Before you head out to pick up your copy of Madden 16, we're going to give you an overview of what to expect for Madden 16.
The most important aspect to any video game is the gameplay so we will start there. Madden 16 adds in the new Air Supremacy feature which focuses on the interactions between receivers and defensive players. This year EA added aggressive, RAC (run after catch) and possession catches to the offensive arsenal. On defense, you now have the option to play the ball (try to intercept or swat the pass) or to play the receiver (make a tackle and try to knock the ball out). The Early Access response to these features has been mixed...
I have created a spreadsheet of formations in each of the team playbooks in Madden 16. Currently all team playbooks are included. I will update this with generic playbooks, legend playbooks (if they still have them) and defensive playbooks (possibly as early as 8/21/15). Be sure to follow this thread for updates. This first post will be updated with stats from the Madden 16 Playbooks spreadsheet as we add data..
Most Offensive Formations: 32 (Washington Redskins)
Fewest Offensive Formations: 23 (Denver Broncos and Detroit Lions)
Most Under Center Formations: 21 (Baltimore Ravens) - 72%
Most Shotgun/Pistol Formations: 24 (Philadelphia Eagles) - 80%
Teams With 30 or More Offensive Formations: 6 (Arizona, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, Seattle, Tennessee, Washington)
Teams With 25 or Fewer Formations: 8 (Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Green Bay, Houston, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Tampa Bay
Teams With 55% or More Under Center Formations: 4...

In a league that stoked fan curiosity by repeatedly proclaiming that the exceptional talent to be had in this draft was franchise changing, it’s only fitting that outside of the top 2 picks, most teams fell in line and made the safe choice.
That’s where 2K and NBA Live come into play. Here’s your chance to take control of your team and alter the makeup of your franchise.
Not a fan of Love? Move him to Houston. Think Rondo has a third act in him? Pull a Pat Riley and shake up the entire league and create the Miami Heatles 2.0? The options are endless, here’s a few ways to narrow it down.
Firstly, the Timberwolves, let’s be honest, the pick was a given. Nothing sexy here. If anything, the biggest surprise is that Flip Saunders didn’t find a way to screw it up and draft Emmaunel Mudiay.
Los Angeles Lakers
The best team to make it out of the draft last night was the Lakers. Mitch Kupchuk sprinkled some fairy dust across the league and...

This conversation came up the other day on Facebook. I posted the Madden 15 plays of the year video and the comments turned into everything that was wrong with Madden. Then it sort of evolved into what can Madden do to return to its glory days?
For many of you, you may be thinking "Return to glory? Madden is dominating!" To some degree you would be right. Madden is the lone console football game (for now) and has reigned as the undisputed king since ESPN NFL 2k5 went away in 2004. However, Madden has lost considerable market share over the past 10 years, even without significant direct competition.
The year after ESPN NFL 2k5 disbanded due to Madden's exclusive rights deal with the NFL, Madden NFL 06 set a franchise high with 7.68 million copies sold across all platforms. That...
The market in MLB 15 The Show's Diamond Dynasty mode is becoming very volatile and unpredictable as of late. I no longer believe that buying players hoping that they will go up in value the following week is a sound strategy for making stubs. For that reason, we are changing our format.
From now on, I will be highlighting the players who you can make the easiest stubs with by "flipping". Flipping is a term used most often with buying and selling houses or even cars but is becoming increasingly popular in Diamond Dynasty. The general goal is to put a buy order in on a player who's sell now price is significantly higher, allowing you to "flip" the card quickly for a fast and easy profit.
Flipping is far less volatile than playing the market in DD. It is kind of like day trading for MLB 15 The Show. Typically, you can buy a player and sell them for a profit in as little as an hour or two. Whereas, playing the market (buying players hoping to make a profit when their ratings...
