NFASL Mid Season report

ESPN Breaking News NFASL Weekly Hosted by Tommanowns, & e30zack has kicked off, and can be found in the Audio Vault on Discord if you ever miss an episode!

     

        On this edition of ESPNEWS It's Week 8, the 1/2 mark of the Season and it's time to look at what's going on in the NFASL. With Major changes this year to personell, and major moves in terms of coaches coming in, Year one of the NFASL is always crazy! Guess what this year is no different! Several Moves have been made for season 2 with some major players playing out their contract in their respective cities. With 7 teams making the playoffs this year, a chance for a Wildcard team doing some major damage in the Post-Season is more feasible than ever. Right now some of the Major players have fell off, and the a few new comers are showing their mettle. The League is full steam ahead, with X-Factor. Something I thought I'd never relent to, however I'm always listening to reason. My Lieutenants made a case, and so far so good. I do already forsee some major problems coming forward, however the Die is set, and now it is, what it is.

   The Discord Application has been one of my favorite additions this year. The Organization is what I like about it, which helps me keep everyone informed. The Days of I didn't know are over. If you don't know now, it's because you truly don't give a F***.  With that said the Nickel 3-3-5 has been BANNED as it has become the YouTube Meta Defense Shutting down Passing attacks with only a few controller adjustments. It also does just enough against the run where you are forced to pass just simply based on dice rolls. Any One size fits all defense, is most likely going to be banned, so adding them to the league only hurts you in the long run. 

      At the Halfway point teams are starting to distance themselves from the pack, however it's still early. Taking a more realistic approach to this game will help some of these teams immensely. Especially if you have one of the more talented teams in the Game if you're throwing Interceptions like they are Bell Bottoms Jeans in the 70's you are not paying attention to the game. Actually thinking about a gameplan, picking a play to set up another play, or simply saying Hey this game is over, I lost, live to fight another day. I cannot stress that enough. I don't get the benefit of throwing 7 interceptions in the hope of getting one more meaningless Touchdown....  

  Lets take a look at the Conferences in the NFASL, and see how things are shaking out.

 

 

American Football Conference

 

 

 

 

 

    AFC North

  • Pittsburgh Steelers 5-2 W-3
  • Baltimore Ravens 5-2 L-1
  • Cincinatti Bengals 5-2 W-2
  • Cleveland Browns 3-5 L-3

AFC South

  • Tennessee Titans 6-0 W-6
  • Jacksonville Jaguars 3-3 L-1
  • Indianapolis Colts 2-5 W-1
  • Houston Texans 1-6 L-6

AFC East

  • New England Patriots 7-0 W-7
  • Buffalo Bills 5-3 L-2
  • New York Jets 2-6 L-1
  • Miami Dolphins 1-6 L-1

AFC West

  • Los Angeles Chargers 5-2 W-4
  • Kansas City Chiefs 5-3 W-2
  • Las Vegas Raiders 3-4 W-2
  • Denver Broncos 2-5 L-3

 

    In the AFC the The Patriots are the Top Dog with a perfect 7-0 record behind one of the most loaded secondaries in the game featuring 99 overall shutdown Corner Stephon Gilmore. Not to mention a solid Run game, Cam Newton at Quarterback, and a Super Bowl Winning coach in SleepingKnapp and the Patriots are becoming a serious Super Bowl Contender. The Titans are right behind them, at 6-0, and will be looking to take their record to 7-0 with a win in week 8 against a Bengals team that is on the rise. The Titans are doing it on defense, as they have the leagues 2nd ranked defense only giving up 20ppg where teams are regularly giving up 50. The Titans also have a battering ram of a running back of Derrick Henry who wails on teams until they submit.  Their coach ChocoRainReubz is in his second stint here in the NFASL, and looks like he is here to stay. 

    There are a few teams of note in the first 8 games that are worth mentioning. One of those teams are the Los Angeles Chargers leading the AFC West with a 5-2 record. They find themselves on a 4 game winning streak, Leading that division with the Chiefs featuring one of the most difficult to defend teams is nothing to sneeze at. The Ravens with 6 time Super Bowl Winning coach Tommanowns is 5-2, and of course are one of the most dangerous teams in the league. However a week 7 loss to their division rival the Pittsburgh Steelers may have signaled the arrival of coach Hac3443. The Steelers are also 5-2, and find themselves on a 3 game winning streak.  In Fact that entire Division is tight with the Bengals 5-2 with #1 Draft Pick showing the poise of a veteran, and the Cleveland Browns 3-5. The Browns have lost 3 in a row, but with a lineup consisting of some of the best players in the league they should right the ship soon enough. 

     For every Yin, there is a Yang and in the AFC I have to say to see some of these teasm struggle is surprising. The Dolphins, Texans, Colts, Jets, and Broncos have a combined 8 wins in Week 8. Now I'm no math Wiz, but that don't add up. Seeing teams struggle out the gate is hard to fathom especially for some of the long term members, who knows the ropes are unacceptable.  It's still early so a few of these teams should try to make a run, however we will see.

 

National Football Conference

 

 

 

 

 

NFC South

  • Carolina Panthers 6-2 W-3
  • Atlanta Falcons 5-3 L-1
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers 4-4 L-3
  • New Orleans Saints 1-5 L-2

NFC North

  • Green Bay Packers 6-1 W-3
  • Minnesota Vikings 3-4 L-1
  • Chicago Bears 2-5 L-5
  • Detroit Lions 1-6 L-2

NFC East

  • New York Giants 5-3 W-5
  • Washington Redskins 3-4 W-1
  • Dallas Cowboys 1-7 L-7
  • Philadelphia Eagles 1-7 W-1

NFC West

  • Seattle Seahawks 6-1 W-5
  • Arizona Cardinals 5-2 L-1
  • San Francisco 49ers 5-3 L-2
  • Los Angeles Rams 2-5 W-1

  In the NFC there are no undefeated teams, however the next best thing is to have 1 loss. There are two teams that have that distinction and they are the Seattle Seahawks, and Green Bay Packers. Both teams are 6-1, and coming off of impressive wins in week 8. The Seahawks defeated the San Francisco 49ers complete with smack talk, cheating accusations, backed up with Video Evidence, and most assuredly a stern talking to from Commissioner Newmoon, to Coach Kaliko420. The Packers defeated Division Rival, and their closest competitor the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers look like they will be coming out of the North, another one of the Leagues Newest Users. Always exciting to see new users kick in the front door, and make a name for themselves. The North is a division I thought would be one of the most competitive in this rendition of Madden, however the South, or West may just take that home with the Cardinals having a 5-2 record, and making some dangerous trades.

The South has 3 new owners, and with the Saints being the only team struggling. However I've seen coach PantherAlumni74 play, and I think he will figure things out. There's an old saying that goes it's not how you start, but how you finish. 

       Saquon Barkley is coming off of breaking, nay shattering the all time single game rushing record after Sony Michel Broke it a week prior. However at 431 yards Barkley's record should be safe from now until eternity. That run game could take the Giants, and their headcoach all the way, as The-KiiD-KennY is looking to get his first ever banner in the Hall of Champions. The NFC Least as Tommanowns calls it has pretty much become a laughing stock. Owners with 90 overall rated teams tank in week 1, and the Eagles are still trying to get his footing in the league, but I digress.

Team Statistics: In the NFL the teams with the best stats normally have the best seasons. This year is no different. It takes every aspect of a team to win games, and while you can have one do well and not the other  over a full season it will show and prove in your final win loss record. So far the tops in the league are those we are about to show here. Let's take a look.

Madden 21 NFASL Kickoff Weekend

        The NFASL is Back!!!!! The New Season is upon us, and right now there are 32 teams all feeling like they have a more than good chance at winning Super Bowl XXXVII! The Reigning champ is no longer with us, as straight out of YouTube offenses, and MUT has no place in the NFASL! That "S" stands for "Simulation" not "Sham". This league is about playing a realistic brand of Football, so even winning it all to lose your spot in the Worlds greatest league is a pyrrhic victory if I ever saw one. However enough about that, let's talk about the year ahead! With Covid-19 throwing the whole damn world for a loop, cancelling sports, live events, and anything that makes life, life I'm glad to have the Madden season to bring some normality back to us. Coach RawDiaw complainng after every loss, Kaliko Rapid fire texts, Tomman winning Chips, and Moon Pimp'N.

        The League will not look the same as we added several new owners to make their mark. It seems every year someone new, kicks down the damn doors of the Hall of Champions, forcing us long time members to scratch our heads. Not to mention some old faces in New Places with Tom Brady throwing passes in Tampa, and Cam Newton in New England..... If those are not sure signs of the Apocalypse I don't know what is.   

        The league is a well run machine, and only gets better every year. Although I would like to take all the credit, I know that this is truly a symbiotic society. A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link, so us working in unison makes this league what it is. Coach JD, and Shooter are once again my top Lieutenants, and I appreciate all they do. Good Luck to all in the up and coming season, and Lets make this season the best one yet!

Kick Off Game

Madden 21

 

 @

   Miami Dolphins (0-0)            New England patriots (0-0)

 

                    The NFASL is Back!

               Foxborough, MA. No better way to start the 37th NFASL season with one the leagues classic rivalries, Coach Atk vs Jerms!. This Rivalry has been dominated by Coach ATK, and the New England Patriots, but The Dolphins are retooled, and are hoping this Madden season is different. Thomas Wayne Brady is no longer throwing passes in Foxborough, as he now resides in Florida, for his more senior moments. In a move that shocked the Football World Superman Cam Newton was brought in to take over the job vacated by the GOAT. With a Defense that gives opposing offenses nightmares, headlined by 99 overall Stephon Gilmore, The McCourty Twins, Dont'a hightower, and a Dominant offensive line the Patriots are set to win right now.

The Dolphins are built a little differently, and are young, very young headlined by the 5th pick in the Draft Tua Tagovailoa. Tua is tasked with uplifting an enitre franchise that has not seen glory since the days of Dan Marino. Pressure bursts pipes, and creates diamonds as the saying goes, which one will happen in this case is the question. The New season is upon us, the Rules have been updated, the Kickoff Game is scheduled, an a rIDE-open receiver in the endzone, the play even turned into a meme featuring Kaliko’s crying face.e last 8 seasons and Coach Atk will have to adjust his game p

Patriots key players of the game:

  • Stephon Gilmore - Stephon Gilmore has cemented himself as the best corner of the game, and will be assigned to DeVante Parker all night long. With Gilmore able to shut down the opposing players best receiver, and get his hands on the ball when you do test him the Patriots Defense is nothing short of Lethal.
  • Cam Newton - When you feel King Kong shoes, you best not try to run a marathon first. Cam Newton will be in that position as he has a solid team around him, and will be tasked as being a game manager for lack of a better word. That doesn't mean he won't make a play or 3, as you don't get the moniker as Superman baking bread.

Dolphins key players of the game:

  • Tua Tagovailoa - When you make your first start of your career you would hope that isn't against a team that went 12-4, and has won more Super Bowls than you have been playing football. Tua Tagovailoa is going to find out real fast that the NFL stands for Not For Long as things move quickly in this League. If the Dolphins win this game it will be because he limited the turnovers.
  • Matt Breida - The speed that Breida Brings to the table will be useful in a game such as this as the Patriots are not the fastest team in the league. Expect a heavy dose as the Dolphins may find life difficult throwing the ball through the air.

Maddenrox9   XXXVI

 

On March 26th, 2020 the Houston Texans won Super Bowl XXXVI Madden 20 PS4! The Coach of the Team was Maddenrox9 who won his second Super Bowl, with a record of 13-3 on the season. The Texans defeated the 14-2 Green Bay Packers coached by spyversusspy by a score of 24-23. The MVP was Middle Linebacker Tuf Borland who finished with just 3 tackles, and a interception. However 2 of his 3 tackles were on 4th, and 1, and he also had a pick 6, 51 yard interception return that was integral for the Texans to win.  Congratulations on your Super Bowl Win!

 

NFASL Welcome Letter Madden 21

of the NFASL!

        On this edition of ESPNEWS Commissioner Newmoon will speak about the state of the league the National Football All Simulation League (NFASL) in it's Now 37th Season of Madden.

      Every year a new Madden comes out with a new sense of optimism, and hope, and guess what this year is no different. Madden 21 has been released worldwide on August 28th, 2020, and the League will officially Kick off on September 4th, 2020 @ 6am EST.  This Madden will be unlike any other that I can remember as we have the most new members that I can ever recall joining in one off-season. Those member are; 

  • Detroit Lions - Hitsquad954
  • Green Bay Packers - Deuce4975
  • Minnesota Vikings - Jojogolive247
  • New Orleans Saints - PantherAlumni74
  • Carolina Panthers - Manny_ThaDon
  • Atlanta Falcons - PrimtiveMind
  • Houston Texans - MM-X_Factor88
  • Tennesse Titans - ToDrip-_-
  • Los Angeles Chargers - stefmoney08*

         Every single one of these members have been vetted by me, and are not only good players, but good people. In the 9 years of running this league, I learned a few lessons along the way, and these new members are an accumulation of those lessons.

         This should be the best season ever with major things happening in the League, IE; With SportIVation getting better with every episode, and Tomman trying to produce NFASL Weekly. The NFASL Weekly is a Podcast discussing the league, games, who's hot, who's not, featuring guests, etc...  JD's Sports book now in it's second Madden season which was a rousing success, to Shooters absolute zero contribution and it's starting to feel a lot like Madden season!  Also how can I forget to mention Discord! Goddamn I love the order of that App! My prowess on photoshop is getting exceedingly better daily, and the ability to write stories on the go, along with top notch graphics really helps set this league apart from the dreck that is out there. 

      The New Advancement schedule should make a few of you happy as we are finally going to a 48 hour advancement period. I could not figure out a way to make 48 works for what I need to do, but came up with a sneaky way to help me, while keeping the league moving. I moved the advancement period to 6am est instead of 8pm est. which allows me to create graphics ahead of time because I always know when we are advancing, and gives a grace period in the morning to look over the stats, write articles, etc....

       In Closing I want to say I'm glad you guys have continued on with the League, and expect this season to be the best one yet! I have always said that the NFASL is a symbiotic society, and it only works if we all work together in unison. At the bottom of the page are all 36 past Super Bowl winners. Some of those former champion even though they are forever etched into the Hall of Champions couldn't figure out how to maintain a spot in the Worlds greatest league! Doesn't matter how good you are if your entire gameplan can be found with a couple keystrokes on YouTube, if you're difficult to communicate with, if you're anbutthead in the chat stealing any fun that could be had in the league, to not following the most basic of rules, etc... I can't not stress this enough. Nothing in your life changes if you win it all, so why not just play for the love.

     Also make sure you guys save those Soda cans, as the PS5 drops this year, and I think 1 or 2 of us will have to sell a kidney to get it!    I want to turn the floor over to my two Co-Commissioners, which are The-Kiid-Kenny, NFC Commissioner, and the NFC Commissioner Jady_Tru. If you have a problem with something in the league, and you are in either conference they will be more than helpful in sorting out your needs.

. .

Commissioners of the NFASL:

  • Newmoon001 - League Commissioner
  • Jady_Tru - AFC Commissioner
  • THE-KiiD-Kenny - NFC Commissioner

..

 

Commissioner of the AFC, Jady_Tru

  • JD-  Most of y'all already know how I,  and the NFC feels about the AFC. We feel you guys dish out more cheese than your local Olive Garden but that is neither here nor there. Moon has told me to be the AFC commissioner and with that I have to put my NFC bias aside and look at things fairly. And in all honesty yall kicked ourbutt last year, winning the superbowl battle 5-2. Since I have been here I've never seen a turnover quite like this in one off-season. 3 of the 5 superbowl winners from a madden ago are no longer here. As much as I dread drastic turnover, I got to admit this is going to make this Madden very interesting because I don't know who will be going into the Hall of Champions. 6 time SB winner Tommanowns is the clear favorite with his Baltimore Ravens led by Lamar Jackson, the closest thing to Madden 07 Michael Vic we have had. But outside of that it is wide open and I look forward to you guys battling it out. There are new NFASL members in the AFC using the Titans, Browns, Chargers, Texans. You guys can dm if you have any questions or ask other members around the league. I know it looks like a lot of rules but it's not as much as it seems. It basically comes down to just play simulation football: switch up your plays, punt when necessary and don't bring anything you learned from a MUT stream into the league. You follow those things along with contacting your opponent in a timely manner and you should be fine.
     
    Let's have a strong Madden 21 AFC!  . 

..

 

Commissioner of the NFC, The-KiiD-Kenny

  • Shooter - First and foremost I would like to welcome the 9 new members to the best league madden has ever seen, the NFASL! This should be a fun Season, and year  as we wait on Next Gen to arrive. Once again my division is as easy as can be especially when you have the same 2 oldest people in the lg by about 50 years in your division. I expect this season to be fun I expect to lose in the first round of the playoffs again and I expect moon to be as bad as the actual Washington football team. I hope everyone has a great season and everyone has fun and just remember you won’t find a better lg ... if you do then KYS !
