View Full Version : A few questions about Madden 04

I've got a couple of questions for ya'll about Madden '04.
1) Just got through my first season of a franchise with the Bucs. Finished 10-4-0 but didn't make the playoffs (????). However, attendence was about 66% and I lost 34 million. Any suggestions on getting attendance and profits back up?
2) Do you have to be able to use the sliders well to be able to be consistently good?
3) If yes, do you have any suggested slider settings for the Bucs?

I thought there was 16 games in the season!!. I don't touch the sliders at all. What are you charging for tix, merchandise, and parking. Lower your prices and don't advertise the weeks when you are away and advertise heavily on home games. How close are you to maxing your salary cap. Did you blow alot of money on stadium upgrades. I don't know how you can't turn a profit with that team. Trade some of your vet's for younger guys with a lower overall, but not too much lower and a draft pick before they retire

Sorry...10-6-0.. my bad. :p I didn't think about not advertising on away games. Makes sense though. On the balance sheet, there is a slot for local media contract..how do you get one of those? Also, is it okay to have one of your prices with an arrow pointing down? I didn't do any upgrades..
Looking at the average income of the people is around 5-10K a year lower then any other city, plus there are 2 other teams in florida around the same area that I was competing with. Another possible reason...i tended to loose my games in clumps..3 in a row at the beginning, 3 at the end. The fans, coming off the super bowl season, may have just lost interest...I dunno :p
