Dont be a dick revisited.

Hello friends, you haven’t heard from us in a while which is a good thing I guess, but lately we have noticed a rise in , lets call it Madden Fatigue or MF for short. Now we are 4 seasons in on the Original league and halfway through the second season of Gameday that’s a lot of madden under the bridge and we are all aware of what the game does well and what its flaws are but the general consensus is that it’s a pretty decent madden. So lets get down to business. Rule 1,2 and 3 of the league are don’t be a dick and some people are starting to fall into the category of being a dick when it comes to game time.

So some things we’d like to address.

Play your game to the best of your ability at all times. This is easy, but still people manage to mess it up. Deliberately picking the wrong type of play, not scoring points when your supposed to, punting when you could take a field goal, not taking a knee that kind of thing, don’t do it, You’re being a dick.

To chew or not to chew that is the question. The games over, your well beaten so you ask your opponent to chew the clock, which they do, this doesn’t mean when you get the ball back you start trying to score points again. Chew means the games over and this means for both teams. If you keep trying to play when you have asked your opponent not to, You’re being a dick. Also if you have been asked to chew, make sure you do it.

Constant moaning to your opponent/group about the game. Whether its in chat or via PM constant complaining about how shit the game is gets annoying very quickly, silly stuff happens, if the ball bounces off your DB’s hands to the receiver it’s a bit unlucky. It doesn’t mean the games broke. If you moan like that constantly and are still playing the game, You’re being a dick.

Rage Quitting. Suck it up and take the L princess, it’s a game ,you piss off your opponent and the commissioners have to waste time thinking up a suitable punishment . If you rage quit You’re being a dick.

MF is real folks, we all get it at various times to varying degrees but lets be perfectly clear on this, constantly being a dick about it is SPOILING THE GAME and the community for the other league members. If you hate it that much stop playing it you are all kinds of special if your wasting 3hrs a week on something you hate, don’t be a selfish dick. Let one of the guys patiently waiting in the wings get a spot. save us all the hassle and come back fresh in Madden 19/20 or 2032 whatever it may be.

Any questions as always drop us a message

Cheers Cubas,

Your Glorious Leaders

PS. Lets stop constantly baiting the same people in the chat, it gets boring fast and we want it to be a safe place for Kareem so he doesn’t feel the need to leave the chat every 3 days.
