The planning stage for the Pastapadre Coaches Connected Career League (Xbox 360) in Madden NFL 13 is now underway. The league will feature a full 32 user-controlled teams with the plan to play two games a week and handle off-season duties on a single day or two. There will be no leniency in staying active – anyone not showing up for a scheduled game or lacking communication will be immediately replaced.
There are two ways in which interest can be expressed. The first and preferred way would be to do so by replying to this post on Google Plus. Those who may not have a G+ account can do so by leaving the information (Gamertag, availability to play, and top five teams to control) instead in the comments. Understand though that anyone chosen for the league will be required to utilize G+ as it will be the primary method of communication for those involved outside of the Connected Careers website.
There will be some favor given to those who have been in past leagues or participate in discussions in the comments or through social media channels. That is just because those people are more likely to stay engaged. There will definitely be some spots filled with people that don’t have that level of familiarity so don’t be discouraged about that.
Understand that there are only 32 teams to be filled so unfortunately the vast majority of those who would like to participate will not be granted a spot. There will certainly be opportunities later to fill teams as any owners flake out. There will also be sign-ups for the Players Connected Careers League coming up in the next week or so. That one will feature either a league made up of only QBs or be opened up to other positions of choice.
