When would the roster updates happen? Maybe around Week 1 of the real NFL season?

I'm on vacation until the 23rd, so I won't be able to play any games until the 24th. Looks like my first game will be against the CPU anyway though.

Keep forgetting to add everyone as a PSN friend!

I think the updates should happen right before the first game - usually the last week of August/first week of September.

I can't check here at work, but there should be a way to find out when they came out last year.

I think it would be worth waiting for instead of playing with the rosters that the game launches with.

If Midnightrun backs out for any reason, I'll take the Pats. If not, I'll take the Bills.

I'm cool with that. I'd prefer to have up to date rosters when we start.

It looks like the official rosters were released on September 6th last year. These were the 52 man rosters that each team started the season with.

Not sure if we can update rosters mid-season, but if we can't, we should wait for these rosters to begin our season. Up to the commish though.

Do we need to send friend invites? Or will we be ok with connecting through the online franchise?

Picking up the game in an hour! Can't wait to get this league started. I have a feeling we might be able to get 32 people before we start!

So who figured out where we input the franchise mode key? If we are in a league do friend requests go out automatically?

Picked it up at lunch. Now I have to wait until I get off work and go home. I might have to get sick, leave early and then take off Monday.

The book says the online franchise key can be redeemed only once.
Do we each have to enter our key, or just the commish.

Each person has to enter a key to make the online franchise mode available.

EA did this so that people who buy used can shell out an extra $5 to them if they want to play the franchise mode online.

That means we could only be apart of 1 online franchise. for free. So what are we doing here a simple league or a franchise. I'm still up for the franchise.

The new game is good. It's taking some getting used to as I played way more FIFA last year then Madden but I'm diggin' it. The the "slow" setting makes sense to me, and the defensive moves are a nice touch. I did run back a kickoff for the first time in forever which is nice.

Question for anyone in the know: I tried looking, but I couldn't find what I needed. As the dolphins I want to switch out ronnie brown from my wildcat QB and insert pat white. Just make more sense as pat has great speed and can kinda throw the ball. But it seems like I can't just change that specific position in that specific formation, more like I have to make a global switch. Any help?

I'm not home yet to try it, but my understanding is Online Franchise is a game mode that only becomes available once the code is entered (ie, menu option). I do not believe there is any restrictions to how many online franchises you take part in.

don't have the game yet, so don't know if this will work, but i would move pat white to 2nd or 3rd string running back and then when you hit the spell button it should put him in..

so are there going to be any rules like not going for it on 4th down when you are on your own 20... or getting up by 7 and then just running goalline offense for the rest of the game and letting the clock run down to 1 sec even in the 2nd quarter..

Well those are rules of football. Going on 4th down can kill you in this game, as its not easy to convert a big play. I know, I tried in my practice vs the computer. But if you are losing in the 4th quarter you may need to go on 4th.
As for running down the clock, if the quarters are long enough, ball control is key. I have a team that has a strong defense, so time control is somewhat essential. I run the clock when I am tied, or losing. LOL.
In my 2 practice games so far I have held the other team's offense well, but threw a few passes that were interecepted and returned, as well as allowing a touchdown on a kickoff. And an 80 yard run play. Sigh.
But otherwise, the game looks and plays great so far.

HA! First game out of the chute was a WTF game. Messed with the game yesterday but did not start my franchise till tonight. I'm the Dolphins playing the Falcons. Ebb and flow game, pretty even, but I should be up by 3 if I could kick a field goal worth the life of me. well, down by three and I get the ball with a minute thirty eight left. First down, Pass incomplete. Second down Taint (Touchdown against Interception ). **Punch couch** Down by ten with a minute and change left. Get the ball, pass complete minimal yardage. Run, first down. Time out. Bomb to Ginn, touchdown. Onside kick, got it. Pass, minimal gain. Bullet pass to a posting Ginn. Touchdown with 38 seconds left. No business winning that game. fun stuff. **I'm sorry couch**
