    I get that, and there's no doubt that he gets his game in before the deadline every week, that's not the perceived issue. The issue is that generally 11 of us find time to get the game in within 24-36 hours after advance. If somebody isn't able to make that time frame of getting their game in that's fine, but they generally post out of courtesy to the rest of us who can, letting us all know that they are going to take a little longer. Ho generally takes closer to the 48 hour range, which again is fine league rules wise. But when the rest of us abide by the afore mentioned "unwritten rule", and he doesn't, it kind of gets annoying. Again the issue is not that ho is not getting his games in, it's that he is consistently last and doesn't seem to put as much time and effort into these dynasties as the rest of us do. When 10 or 11 of us are putting in a fair amount of time and effort into these dynasties, we expect it from everyone.

    I don't know how many times I've posted in the past that he doesn't have capability of getting on here at work. When he's at work between that 24-36 hour period, how do you expect him to post. When he gets home around 10-11, he usually hangs out with his girl for a little bit before she goes to bed, then plays.

    Here's the facts. We started rivals in late July. It just turned November. So in about three months, we're midway through our fourth season. That's a pretty good pace. And he's been there since the beginning.
    He's been here since last season, and there weren't many complaints until as of late, yet he's still getting it in within 48 hours.
    I'm sure splff will agree with me when I say it gets annoying having to see the last game nazi's every other day. The guy gets it. He'll play his game well within the deadline every time.
    You guys act like I don't have direct contact with him and don't know when he'll play his game. I know that it'll get done (well within the given time) or he or I would give a heads up just like we did on the Miami trip.
    Otherwise, if it's been like 24 hours, let's just chill out. I get that everyone gets eager to play their games, but it's not like its not going to be there tomorrow.

    Let's move this over to the Rivals thread where it belongs. Ho gets his stuff done pretty good over here. Smile Anyway, I'm posting something in rivals so we can continue over there.

    Man, it ain't when anyone mentions ho. It's when clark does it over, over, over, over, over, over, over, over and over again. Throw in a little jhawk (sometimes) for good measure, but there's a common patter running with this and that's that 90% of the time it's a smart ass comment from clark.

    Gotta agree wit hawk. I understand he plays in the 47th hour before the deadline, but the fact he never posts when the rest of the league is waiting on him is pretty disrespectful to the rest of us. It's not that big a deal and obviously there's the whole Canada vs. Florida thing but on the real, it takes 30 sec to come on here and say "hey guys imma need a bit more time to knock my game out". You don't have to live on the boards to do that and it means a lot to the other 11 guys who also have lives and gfs/wives. If its impossible to keep up with the pace of the other 11 users them maybe being in 2 dynasties isn't the best idea.

    Stop,
    Glad someone else sees the whole Canada vs. Florida thing going on. I literally just said the same thing in rivals. Anyways, if you look up a couple of post, you'll see where I said he doesn't have access to it at work and usually that's when all this gets stirred up by clark is when he's working.
    For future reference, he usually works from about noon-10 p.m.

    Thanks for clearing that up. Still it would help if he came on once and awhile - like just to say "hey its gonna b a busy week don't expect any quick advances." That puts it on the record, quells expectations, and everything is cool. Nothing's more frustrating than seeing 11 green dots on the first day and then getting no updates for 24H. Its the fact that there are no posts that make it seem like he doesn't give a shit.

    That being said my humble opinion is on the record and that's the last imma say about it.

    But I guess Ho can't play cause he's watching a movie is reasonable too.

    Damn man, sucks about your teeth. At least they're only chipped. Gotta look at the bright side, right?

    Man, I'm sorry if it seems like I've got it out for someone or something, but that just ain't the case. I don't have a problem with anyone in here and I will defend anyone who I feel deserves it. And in this case, clark definitely deserved it. You talk about stirring shit up, you're the one who started this whole mess right now with your "smart ass comment" about clark not calling out joker, when as I pointed out, it was a different situation than that of ho.

    And as far as the whole Canada vs. Florida crap, that's a bunch of bs cuz it's more than just Clark and Joker (and I guess myself if you wanna lump me with them) that get annoyed waiting with no board interaction from ho. And if I recall correctly, you started the whole Florida vs. Canada bullshit anyways. Back then I think you started it joking around (as you typically do with everything), but now it has turned into more than that, and you're blaming them; that's BS. And trust me, I'm no big Canada defender, if you remember Clark, Joker, Splff, and I all got into it pretty intense with U.S. vs. Canada and got country talk banned.

    I'm not saying clark is an angel and that none of this shit is his fault or that he doesn't egg it on or anything. But recently you have instigated just as much shit as he has and then like to blame it all on him. The whole Canada vs. Florida bs I think is mostly Urban vs. Canada because you seem to have it out for them (specifically Clark).

    You may disagree with me, hell everyone may, but I'm not picking sides, I'm just calling it as I see it. (Sorry for posting this over here splff)

    Hawk, I think your memory is a little off on how the whole Canada vs. Florida thing got started. It started after I beat Clark in the SEC championship and he came in with an all caps post about how I was such cheese, blah, blah, blah. Then they started to talk about how bad we sucked blah, blah, blah. So my response was winning a championship and putting Florida 1, Canada 0 in response to how many championships we have won.
    It's not joker. That's obvious. He's always one to come out and say good game, whatever. Clark has been the biggest smart ass since the dynasty has begun and I have no problem with that. Be a smart ass, it's funny. I do it as well. My only problem is that I've had to reiterate his schedule so many times and it continues to be brought up because he doesn't play two games in a 24 hour period.
    Its a continual thing that the same person brings it up with some smart ass remark EVERY TIME. It's hardly ever anyone else that complains until Clark says something smart about it. That's why I said something about Joker being last. Read my post again and tell me how much it sounds like I care that he's last. I know he plays, there's no wondering if he will play. The same goes for ho. I know he plays, and I don't have to wonder if he will play. Will it be within 24 hours every time? Probably not, but will it be within 48 hours. Yeah.

    Hey Jhawk, I'm sorry if I ever offended you while we were playing. If you ever thought I cheesed or cheated on any play, I apologize. It's apparent that you Kansans take your video game football very serious.

    Hey yall check out this site:

    http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/forums/content.php

    They have this cool "NCAA feature" tournament and apparently this is how we got some of the new features into NCAA this year. The tournament is here:

    http://www.thegamingtailgate.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?37

    The potential features are given to the site by EA and the users vote on them in polls. It starts out with 68 and works down kinda like the NCAA basketball tournament. If you don't wanna vote, it's cool to at least look and see what kind of stuff EA is thinking about for NCAA 12.
