Can't call timeout, time runs out and I lose.

Down by 1, 7 seconds left on my opponent's 15 yard line.

He uses his last timeout, so all I've got to do is kneel it, call timeout (I have all 3) with like 3 seconds left, kick the chip shot and I win.

I kneel, it gets to 5 seconds and I hit timeout. Nothing. I hit it again, nothing. At this point I'm panicking, slamming the back button. I try pausing, nothing. Time runs out and I lose.

WHAT THE **** IS THAT?

Re: Can't call timeout, time runs out and I lose.

i have had this happen before in madden 10 as well as in past maddens. when it happened to me this year in madden 10 sadly i knew what to do. you have to pause the game and call a TO from the menu screen. every time this happens i use this method and it works for me...hope this helps.

This happened to me last night on NCAA 10. Fortunately it didn't cost me because I already had the game won and was just running u the score against my rival.

You should have kicked with 7 seconds left ..

Before blaming the game, was it your controller? This has happened to me but then I remembered I forgot to change the batteries

Re: Can't call timeout, time runs out and I lose.

I tried hitting pause, like I said in my OP. Nothing happened.

It wasn't my controller either, I played 3 games after that and my controller still had 3/4 of those bars full.

I didn't kick with 7 seconds left because I had all 3 timeouts left, so why the hell would I kick with 7 seconds left and risk him getting a miracle return, when I could run the clock down to 3 or 4, call timeout, and end the game for sure?

Normally I would agree with this, but with all the holding calls on FGs you are better off kicking with a few second left on the clock that way if there is a holding call the game doesn't end and you will get a chance to rekick

Re: Can't call timeout, time runs out and I lose.

Reyes good pt with the hlding calls this year u cant wait till the last second anymore becasue u never know. Iv had it happen to me where i had to press select 2 3 times before the timeout is called. I guess it could be similiar to a coach trying to find a ref to call a time out and a few seconds running off the clock idk

That's a good point, I'm going to think about this the next time I have to kick a last second field goal.
