Learn to recognize those crazy BS games early. If you're playing a friend, you can friendly quit and start over.
I started a game with Gator TD last night. I kicked off to him, held him to 3 & out and forced a punt. On my first possession, I throw a pick that was borderline BS. The WR was open for a sec, but I'm using a 76 OVR qb, so I could live with it. A couple plays later, his HB breaks free, but right before he crosses the goal line, one of my guys strips him and I recover in the end zone for a touchback. He holds me to a punt, and on his next possession, I get a user strip and recover another fumble. However, on the return, one of my guys is called for clipping, so I'm facing 1st & 25 at his 41. That makes 3 turnovers in the first 2 1/2 minutes of the game.
LOL. Pause. Friendly quit. Start over.
The second game was great. Ended up going to 2 OTs with the Gators pulling it out 30-27 after stuffing Lawrence Vickers on a 4th & inches run.
Anyway, my point is, this game is a lot more fun to play if you're willing to friendly quit and start over when the BS starts snowballing. It's all about recognizing it early. If it's someone I know and play against a lot, I am willing to sacrifice a 7 or 14 point early lead, knowing that it will come back around to me eventually.
I let Gamers out of a BS game a while back, so he owes me one. Bigjkt let me out of one too, so I owe him one. Fortunately, the game against GatorTD was 0-0, so we caught that one in time.
To all the guys who I play regularly, I am more than happy to friendly quit in the 1st quarter if you're getting hosed, as long as you return the favor sometime in the future. It really is a lot better than sitting through another momentum hosejob.
