January 2017 League of the Month - BSD!

JAN 2017 League of the Month - BSD!!
Happy January guys!  We're moving along here at League Crawler and it's already a new year!  2016 was a really great year for us.  We officially launched in March of 2014 and it took almost a year and a half to get 100 members.  Over the second year and a half, we have grown to approximately 1,350!  It's been really cool to meet so many cool people in the community and see all the cool stuff leagues are doing!  I want to say thanks for a great 2016 to everyone that has used our site for recruiting, finding leagues, providing feedback and ratings on players, playing in our tournaments and everything else!  This is a community site and you are a wonderful community to be a part of!  That said - along the way, we've had a chance to feature some really cool leagues in our league of the month articles.  This month's league of the month requires a limited amount of introduction because it's commish, johnnyloudpockets has a LOT to say as you might guess from his username.  

December 2016 League of the Month - XCFL!

December 2016 League of the Month - XCFL!

Greetings! We're two weeks away from Christmas, the Madden app is finally out and I'm writing about yet another great league in the Madden community that deserves recognition for it's ambition, longevity and commitment to its members.  Please join me in congratulating XCFL as we recognize them as December's League of the Month.  Before I get into the Q&A with Jim, XCFL's commissioner, let me say that I absolutely LOVE several things about this league.  I do not however love Jim's NFL team choice.  Being a Steeler fan makes me very uncomfortable about you as a person, Jim.  Ok - that's all I'll say about that.  What I am continually finding impressive and shocking is how long some of the leagues we see in the Madden community have been around.  I remember playing in my first league on PS2 and it seemed like such a small community back then - not so apparently.  Jim, like me was playing Madden Franchise back then too and like all of us that have been at this for a while, he's learned a lot along the way too.

Madden 17 Tribute Tournament Winners!!

Madden 17 Tribute Tournament Winners!!

Greetings from League Crawler and if you're reading this, chances are you played in our Tribute Tournament!  If you did or your league was represented, I first want to say thanks for playing and I hope everyone had a great time.  The idea is simple - get leagues to pick 2 players from their league 2 represent them, randomly place them in a bracket and let them duke it out for a LC T Shirt and some money!  Big thanks to the donations that came in this year to make an event like this possible - you can find a list of our contributing members here - leaguecrawler.com/social - with the lastest donation from Synergy League Recruiter going to pay for the prizes in this tournament.  Big thanks to him as well for tweeting out games in Twitter when I was unavailable.  This is the thirs tournament we've done and was very successful with only a few ruffled feathers.  Thanks again for playing and for those of you that may have had to be the bigger man, thanks for not causing a scene.  Anyway, on to the results!

November 2016 League of the Month - OMFL

November 2016 League of the Month - OMFL

For the record, the actual Super Bowl is up to like - 50 or something.  That speaks of longeveity and the honing of a product that people enjoy playing, watching and being a part of.  How about 69 Super Bowls?  What would that say to you, Mr. League Crawler League of the Month article reader?  I'd say it says a lot of the same things and if you've been playing Madden long enough, you know that kind of record is RARE in this community.  As you'll read in the following article, our League of the Month for November is one of the longest running Madden Leagues out there and goes to show that a well run league can survive the test of time, leadership and change in consoles.  Before I reveal who it is (officially - yes, I know you saw it in the promo image..) let me take you back to 2001 when these guys started this league.  Apple was launching the ipod, George Bush was being sworn in as president, and Wikipedia was just beginning.  That's how long OMFL has been doing business and just a part of the reason these guys are our League of the Month!

October 2016 League of the Month - MEE

October 2016 League of the Month - MEE

Happy October everyone!  I know that many leagues are still reeling from the fact that there is no CFM Online website or connectivity to Daddy Leagues at the moment but leagues are still rolling!  That's a testament to the quality of the leagues out there and the people running them.  It also speaks to the ability of these leagues to find great members to join, assimilate, follow rules and become a functioning member of their community.  With that said, it's my pleasure to announce the League of the Month for October - Madden Elite Evolution!  I've been aware of these guys for a while now and been stalking them on Twitter, etc like my wife does to her friends on Facebook.  One of the things I can say right off the cuff in talking with Ryan, their commissioner is - he's the real deal.  One of the things I think is difficult in running a league is having the maturity and temperament to see it through.

League Crawler Reaches 1000 Members

Well, we finally did it!  After almost 2 1/2 years, League Crawler has had it's 1,000th User Registration!  Around here, that's a pretty big deal and one we want to invite you to celebrate with us!  Before I get into how that will happen, I want to take a quick moment to just say thank you to everyone that has joined this site, said nice things about it, are engaged and use it and provide feedback and ideas for how to make it better.  As we continue to grow, it's the support of the community that will make this project thrive and continue to be a valuable tool to the Sports Gaming Community.  On top of that, I have to point out that there have been a lot of great people along the way that have promoted, encouraged and recruited for this site. Without you, we would be a ghost town.

September 2016 League of the Month - Synergy!

September 2016 League of the Month - Synergy!
Happy Madden Season everyone!  We skipped League of the Month for August, paid tribute to our tournament winners in July which means, it's time to feature a great league for September!  I've gotten to know these guys a little bit over the past few months and I have to say, they seem like a really great group of guys.  I had a chance to talk to their commissioner, Phil Tracy (props for having two first names Phil) about what is driving him and his league to stand out in the CFM community so much in such a short time.  His answers are below but before you get there I need to let you know how helpful his right hand man has been to me at League Crawler in the past few weeks.  As we've grown here at League Crawler there have been some glaring issues that I've been unable or unwilling to fix that he's been kind enough to point out and help me get that much needed feedback to help in the process of enhancing and de-bugging the site.

CFM QB Situations for Madden 17

CFM QB Situations for Madden 17

When considering any NFL team’s chances to win the big one the conversation begins with the man behind center. While a great Madden user can turn ill prepared NFL Quarterbacks like RGIII, Johnny Football and Brett Hundley into stars on the virtual field, the push toward an even more simulation product should mean a greater emphasis on having a capable starter at QB. Some things are likely to never change. The Madden version of RGIII and Kaep will always be more effective than their real life counterparts. So, it’s important for any CFM Owner to carefully consider their teams QB Situation. Are you lucky enough to roll with the MVP, Super Cam, for the entire cycle? Do you need to get the QB Retirement Coach Trait to keep Big Ben on the field and Landry Jones off it? Do you feel strongly enough as a coach that you can harness Jay Cutler’s arm or does a QB have to be on your immediate draft board? Here’s a breakdown of every teams QB Situation going into Madden 17.
