    Anyone else put any time into it?

    I played around with it for a bit last night. The interface is a bit.... overwhelming? clunky? at times, but once you start to figure your way around I'm starting to like it.

    I think one of the biggest frustrations I've hit though is the lack of a solid way to sort players during the franchise draft. You can sort by individual skills, but not by overall score so it becomes tough to find guys.


    One question for anyone that has logged time that I forgot to look at last night - the game viewer is pretty cool. Anyone know if there is a way in MP to do like solevision - where you can hide scores, but still go in and "watch" the game?

    I'm liking the game so far in my little bit of dinking around with it. One small bit of advice: be very careful when selecting from menus; e.g., in the Team Roster screen. If you screw up in one of the pull-downs (which is quite easy; e.g., when looking up your Dev League team), the game will give an error and crash to the desktop.

    I am super-clueless with the game right now, and I've yet to advance beyond league setup.

    Not sure what you speak of re: this nonsense, but the crash I experienced at the end of my first go-round with free agency was certainly reassuring...

    The game is a crash-fest. Save... Save... Save.
