Madden NFL 11 News Post


I think most of us franchise guys would like to see full rosters, with practice squads, real IR and the ability to not be bogged down by the 53 man roster limit during the off-season (until the cut dates occur, of course). Donny Moore's Twitter seems to imply they'll be sticking with the basic 53 yet again this year.

Well for now I ain't assuming nothing. That twit is just meaning the final 53 man roster for then regular season bro. That post means nothing more. We don't know yet what they have done are what they have done to the roster and other things in that department yet. To early to assume anything.

As much as I want 80 man offseason rosters and all of the detail of a real NFL offseason (like compensatory picks, transition tags, and more undrafted free agents), I've almost given up hope.

I would almost be satisfied if they would just bring back practice squads, fix injured reserve, and make a realistic restricted free agency.

That being said, I don't really think you can take that much out of that twitter statement.

NCAA has like what 120 teams with 70 players. Thats a possible 8400 players. Wonder how they get that done in time.

Guys you gotta remember there has to be a 53 man roster for online play. so that doesn't mean anything
 
# 7 Mr_Riddick @ 05/18/10 09:35 AM
LK I think your just wishful thinking. He said 53. And its may not august,meaning there are more than 53 men on each teams training camp roster. But on the other hand I would like to be suprised. But I highly doubt it. Just saying.....

As long as IR is fixed, I'll be happy with 53 Man rosters.

Plus we never in Madden was able to start a franchise mode at the offseason...

IF NCAA can have 70 man rosters with 120 teams surely Madden could do that with just 32 teams..

I would definitely settle for that this year. I wouldn't be happy about it but, at least that would be an improvement.

The amount of time they must have to spend to stop people exploiting online clearly takes away from the rest of the game.

50/50.. As long the guy who produce Head Coach 09 is still on the team

If it's in the game... it's... ????

Seriously the fact that this game is still missing BASIC EVERY YEAR things... it's inexcusable.

With out a full roster the pre-season is completely worthless. Either add the full roster or get rid of the pre-season altogether and edit the off-season.
 
# 19 patsfan188 @ 05/18/10 03:00 PM
well I won't be buying the game if the franchise mode isn't fixed.
This is just dumb if u can't have more than 53 players during the offseason.
My favourite mode is franchise mode. Think EA u ruined superstar so nobody plays it anymore and i'm not going to play online all the time cus people quit when i'm winning and then I have to play the computer! If I want to play the compute I could just play a play now game.

Rosters are important aspect to building a team and all aspects need to be incorporated. Very important.

Roster cuts
53 man roster
Game day actives
practice squad
IR
