Madden Season 4 Online Connected Career Rules.

by Alan

Unlike previous years, I’m going to streamline this list to make it quick and easy to follow. Grats to Ging on his second straight Super Bowl win.

If you have any questions, message me on


All USERS have to read and agree to the Season 4 rules.






-League is a dictatorship, not a democracy. I appreciate constructive feedback on rules and slider changes, but all decisions are up to me.

-All trades go through me. DO NOT SUBMIT A TRADE UNTIL I APPROVE IT. This includes CPU submitted trades. You get 1 CPU trade and 2 USER trades. Draft pick for draft pick trades do not count against the limit as long as they are done before the draft in the off-season, they still need to be approved by me. There will be no trading during the draft because Madden sucks, so make sure you get it done beforehand. 

-Draft will be on Monday, March 11th, 2013. Pre-Season will begin that night if my calculations are correct.

-Off-season advances every day. Pre-season advances every day. Regular Season advances Monday, Wednesday and Friday around 10 Eastern Standard Time.

-Play your games. If you miss a week, you get a warning. If you miss two weeks, you get the boot. Exceptions will be made with the proper amount of sweet talk.

-You must have a decent connection. Laggy games are no fun for anyone, so don’t join if you can’t play a smooth game of Madden.

-It is your job to get your games in, not mine. If you need someone put on autopilot, let me know 24 hours before, otherwise the game will be simmed.

-Rage quitting a game is an automatic boot. Legit disconnections result in a replay.

-Friendly shit talking is cool. If you take it overboard, you might need to find another league. AKA The Pie Rule.

-Warnings will be handed out based on player feedback. If you do something questionable, you will get a warning. If you do something questionable twice, you lose your first round pick. Do it a third time and you get the boot. This includes unauthorized trades and running up the score against a USER or CPU. I can expedite the process as I see fit. You have been warned :)

-If you schedule a game and don’t show up for it, you get a warning. Do it again and you get the boot.

-Everyone who gets booted it eligible to rejoin the league in the next year granted you agree to follow the rules.

-Lions players are up for grabs this year in FA. I can’t control the CPU bidding for them, so feel free to go for them.

-This will be a 20 man league. I do have room for more people if they are active in chat and promise to be active in the league. Just because you are on the waiting list doesn’t mean you get in. Stream chat activity helps!




-I try to make this league as sim as possible. It’s hard because the game does not promote realism. The goal is to provide a fun and equal challenge for everyone in the league. It is impossible to have realistic stats in a USER league with this many people, but please try not to go overboard. This is not a demand, it is a request. Thanks!

-No running up the score against USERS or CPUS. If your game ends with more than 28 points above your opponent, you’re going to have a bad time

-No nanos. No cheese plays. Keep your linemen on the line during pre-snap. No running ANY streaks out of the backfield, including RB, WR TE and FB. No running the prevent D (Dropping 10 guys back) unless it’s the last 2 minutes of each half. Pretty much play as realistic as possible.

-No dropping back anyone before the snap of a punt. AKA The Damian Rule.

-NO CHEESING THE CPU. If you find an exploit, don’t abuse it and let me know about it.

-You get 1 fake punt or fake field goal a game. AKA The Burrito Rule.

-No running hurry up more than twice in a row unless it’s the last 2 minutes of each half.

-No onside kicks until the fourth quarter.

-You can only go for it on 4th down when you are inside your opponents 40.

-No bitching about the sliders. AKA The Ging Rule.

-No Rocket catching. Curls are okay, but this is not.

-No Dropping back 10 people on defence unless it’s within the 2 minutes of each half. I want to eliminate the prevent cheese.

-Have fun.





-1600 MSP for the Winner of the Super Bowl.

-Special prize if you win it with the Lions this year.




Thanks for playing!

So are we using the same sliders?
