    State of the League Address

    Hey guys! The commissioner team wanted to take the opportunity now that we are a ¼ way through our first season to give some general feedback and reiterate some of the league expectations. Just about everyone in the league is new to PX1 and while most of you aren’t new to sim style madden leagues, you are new to some of the specifics of how we do it here. Because everyone is new we have been patient on a few fronts and we expected a few hiccups, but we have a number of concerns we will address here. I want to mention that the commissioner team spends a lot of time trying to make this league the best it can be for all 32 guys. We do this without compensation and all we ask is for you guys to buy in and do things the PX1 way.

    First, I want to say that there have been some great games and many of you are holding up your end of the bargain as far as gameplay and participation. For those of you for whom that is the case, thank you!


    Here are a few of the concerns that we have:
    • Participation - We don't ask for a lot on this front. Post a few times in the forums about your team and that you have read and understood the rules, submit game ratings, and give feedback on game ratings below 5. We encourage more and many of you are providing it, but too many aren’t meeting the minimum. If you are failing to submit a game result, confirm a game result, or give feedback, you will be removed. You have until we advance on Friday night to catch up on whatever you are lacking or you will be removed.

    • Gameplay - I am operating under the assumption that you have all read and understood the rules, particularly since almost all of you have posted that you have. Despite that, I am watching streams where guys are pressing on defense every play, making multiple hot routes for a single play, playing exclusively zone coverage or man 0 blitzes, running FB dive on 3rd and 4th and short yardage and many more issues. All of these things are covered in our gameplay rules. Watching some games I can only conclude that some people either haven’t read the rules (though they said they did) or don’t care. Here is the thing, if you are breaking a specifically spelled out rule, like when you can attempt a 4th down or when you can run FB dive, we aren’t going to be very willing to work with you. Your peer reviews will reflect these issues and we will have far less patience moving forward. It isn’t fair for us to continue to force the guys who have bought in and are following the rules to play those of you who haven’t.

    • Attitude and Buy In - We are all here to have fun and create a good competitive and sim madden environment. Stop asking who you play this week, or who is the user of what team, or what is the rule for x, y, or z. Man up and be a part of the league or get out. Pretty much everything you need to play in this league is available on our forums. You can easily access them from your phone and the commissioners get tired of feeling like we have to hold people’s hands about how to access the forums. If you really don’t know how to get onto the forums or how they work, send us a PM and we can give you a brief overview to get you started, it isn’t complicated and shouldn’t require us constantly telling you how to do things. If you don’t want to put forth the time and effort required to be here please let us know, there will be no hard feelings if you would rather jump in multiple leagues from every dark corner of the internet. At PX1 we strive to make a league that can be your “go to” league experience where you can be more immersed and experience better gameplay and competition than other places without the lobby BS. What we do isn’t for everyone, so please decide for yourself if it is or isn’t and act accordingly.

    Thank you for reading this entire post. Please reply below if you want to continue to be a part of the PX1 league experience.

    Having a blast so far, happy to be here. Can't wait for the draft! Nothing better than a 32 man draft!
