    Not until tomorrow, according to most places. I guess I just hit a dodgy EB Games (coughnorthlandshoppingcentrecough)... Keep it under your hat, though.

    I'm actually from down around the western suburbs, all the way over in Melton. Hence why the Crusaders were so easily accessible to me. Just fortuitous I happened to be over around Northland way.

    hmm, I might have to check it out.

    I used to work in Melton though Footscray is still a bit of a drive isn't it?

    Not too bad... 45 mins... 35 by the way my mate used to drive. lol

    More impressions (just let me know if you're sick of me hijacking your topic, TNT)... screen passes seem to stooge me every time. Longest plays by CPU have been on screens. Maybe it's my playcalling.

    Something cool... playing Seahawks in the rain; as Hasselbeck dropped back for the pass, he slipped up and had to right himself, then immediately got rid of the ball. Very realistic!

    I'm absolutely looking forward to this game. It seems to be much improved and I hope to have it come Friday, Monday at worst.

    No way, glad to have the contribution.

    I did see something yesterday that bugged me. I was playing an exhibition game and I was going to kick a field goal. Well the ball was snapped and Bironas kicks it, but a lineman turns around runs toward him and catches the kick. I tried to run with him which didn't work, looked at the replay several times in disbelief, but that's exactly what happened. Weird. If this would have happened to me in a real game I would be pissed.

    On another note in a game this morning I ran about 10 yards with LenDale with a defender literally hanging on his back lol.

    PROOF! See, LenDale loosing weight hasn't hampered his big running style.

    First thing to bug me yesterday; in the middle of a 41-10 thrashing at the hands of my mate (who had Madden 09 on Xbox360 while I used to be a PS2 man, that's my excuse!), I ran the ball up the guts with LenDale on 4th and 1. It was a close call so they brought out the chain gang (which seems to happen fairly often) for the measurement. They measured it and indicated it was short... But for some reason I got the first down and continued on offence anyway. Weird.
