ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only

azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:12 PM) Soooo has anyone had any experience with the new Sling Tv?
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:13 PM) $20 a month gets you ESPN and 15 other channels.
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:18 PM) All streamed.

santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:59 PM) i also have hbo go netflix amazon prime. with hd antennas i get the local channels as well.
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:00 PM) I tried the watch ESPN ap but since I cancelled my DTV it said I needed a provider.

ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:12 PM) Unless you guys are looking for internet tv alternatives to cable or satellite tv You are better off just buying a slingbox http://www.slingbox.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:15 PM) I like Directv better but ine thing Dishnetwork has is an integrated slinbox into the Genie so it is far better receiver than Directv`s
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:18 PM) With a slingbox you can just login to Slingbox and you can watch every single channel you have at home with the same guide and remote. A Slingbox basically makes it as if you have a receiver anywhere in the world you have internet access. So you get every single channel that you get at home with all the functions. setting recordings, watch recorded shows,etc.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 PM) Its not the same thing as Directv ans cable companies giving you access to certain channels by logging in our going to websites by logging in. You literally get every single channel from home anywhere as long as you have wifi or wired net. My cousin has a Slingbox hooked to his Directv receiver. Actually I mean hopper.....duhhhh Directv has the Genie. The Hopper has the integrated Slingbox...and thats hats the one cool thing about the Hopper not having to shell out the extra cash for a seaparate slingbox since its integrated with the Hopper
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:28 PM) Slingboxes are nice just not cheap
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:50 PM) :thud:
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) I did away with paying over a hundred bucks a month. My DTV bill was crazy and even after I lowered my package to the minimum I was still paying way too much for something we really didn't use much
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i do NetFlix and Sling TV.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i was doing Hulu too but cancelled it
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:10 PM) I have $30 a month into my tv now. Locals with an HD antenna
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:46 PM) Word Hd antenna is real nice when you live close to a city. Here in nola everything comes in crisp and clear for a $6 antenna
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 09:15 AM) Now I just need to find a reliable stream for the Jets games.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 02:56 PM) ridley visiting the jets
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:57 PM) New York Jets Re-Hire Terry Bradway
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:58 PM) http://www.ganggreen...e-terry-bradway
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 04:15 PM) I see a lot of mocks giving us shane ray. anyone think its a good pick?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 04:16 PM) aprils fools yo ;)
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:20 PM) Well this is definitely not an April Fools Joke....Kyle Wilson is on the Saints....REJOICE!!!!

New Article on EA Sports.

VISION AND PRECISION

By Dino Scoppettone

Chances are, if you're an experienced Madden NFL gamer, you've spent more than a little time using the Atlanta Falcons in the game – mainly because quarterback Michael Vick can be practically unstoppable, given his amazing scrambling abilities and his knack for throwing well on the run.

While Vick will still be a force to be reckoned with in Madden NFL 06, the rest of the quarterbacks are coming back to the pack, thanks to this year's emphasis on Vision and Precision. For the first time in years, the Madden NFL passing system has been improved significantly, making a quarterback's ability to see the entire field a very important part of the passing game.

Madden NFL 06 gamers will notice a difference from the first snap of the ball. On passing plays, quarterbacks will have a "Vision Cone" which denotes the direction in which the QB is looking. The size of the Cone is dependent upon the quarterback's talent rating, as well as the skill at which you're playing, and the concept is to use the Cone to look in the direction of the receiver to which you want to throw the ball.

This means the days of rolling out right and throwing a blind bullet pass to the left for an easy 20-yard completion are over – unless you make sure your QB is looking to the left before he throws the ball. The easiest way to look at your intended receiver is to hold the R2 button (on the PlayStation®2 console) and tap the receiver button, which immediately moves the Vision Cone towards that receiver, before you hit the receiver button to actually throw the ball. Using the R2 button method, which is basically a double-tap, the quarterback's head can "snap" quickly to look at the receiver before he throws it.

Alternately, gamers can use the right analog stick to manually move the vision cone left and right, allowing them to look back and forth across the field, trying to spot a receiver. Whether using the R2 button or the right analog stick, however, it will be important for gamers to have their quarterbacks looking in the direction of the receiver before throwing, because any balls thrown in a direction where the quarterback isn't looking have a much better chance of being overthrown, falling short, or even being intercepted.

In fact, at the higher skill levels, gamers won't even be able to throw to receivers outside the vision cone after a period of time, because the receiver's passing icons will fade out if the quarterback doesn't look in his direction for too long.

Old-school Madden NFL players will, of course, have the option to turn off the Vision Cone system and use the previous passing system, but the Vision Cone lends a new air of realism about the game – just ask the guys that actually play the position for a living.

"In most video games, you can just hit a button and the quarterback will just throw it wherever he wants. Now, you really have to know what's going on, you've really go to understand the game," said Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer after trying out the new Vision Cone system. "It changes the game and I think it's going to make it more competitive. You can't just go back and hit a button. You've got to know exactly where the receivers are going; you've got to know if they're running a crossing route, an out route, a go route, and you've got to kind of lead them with your vision."

Vision, according to Palmer and several other NFL quarterbacks who have previewed Madden NFL 06, is one of the most important aspects of playing the position.

"That is the the most important thing, in my opinion," Lions quarterback Joey Harrington said of having excellent on-field vision. "You don't have to have the strongest arm, you don't have to be the fastest guy out there, but you have to read and recognize what's going on. Anybody can get out there and chuck the ball 65 yards down the field, but if you don't see the coverage, see where the opening in the zone is, see how the guy is breaking out of his route versus man coverage, you're not going to complete most of your balls."

"Vision is a big thing," added Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck. "A lot of times, guys will say 'hey, I didn't see him.' He was wide open, but you didn't see him. Hey, it's your job to see him. You've got a lot of offensive line in front of you, and you've got to find a way."

Another addition to the passing game in Madden NFL 06 is the new Precision Passing system, which gives players greater flexibility as to where they're aiming the ball. By pressing either the left analog stick or the D-pad in the direction you want the ball placed as you throw it, you can aim the ball at a spot near the receiver – high or low, outside or inside, as you try to keep it away from the defensive players.

Well go to Maddennation.com... they say right on the top, it says:

The End of the "Madden" Name? June 15, 2005

KFFL is reporting that John Madden is leaving ABC to join the NBC crew. What does this mean for the Madden football title? Read the full story here and discuss it.

I know we hate each other, but everything I have said to you before this post, has been on topic. Then you come in here posting an off-topic post again, in one of my posts. Do you like pissing me off? I post something for people to read. Not for you to talk shit. So either stay on topic, or don't post.

first off i dont hate you... i do disagree with a lot of your opinions but that is non consequential (somewhat)...

i was just confused by what you posted about the madden name being finished and i asked you to explain your post and you were unable to, and where you told me to look really didnt have anything to do with that

but i am not going down this danged road again even though i know you are gonna take this personally or whatver, so reply with your finest words good sir, but dont make this something it isnt

I don't believe they'll change the name, or at least not for quite awhile. Take Comisky Park for example, now U.S. Cellular Field.
Charles Comisky was the founder/creator of the White Sox, and the stadium was named after him. Now recently in like 2003, they changed it to U.S. Cellular Field.
Therefore the creator/founder of the noun/proper noun they created may have their name on that product even after they die or retire, since they were the one who started it and should rightfully be remembered for it years later.
So it won't be "Lil'Nom 2020", it'll take awhile and then they will change the name.
But with a hug and a kiss one of you needs to apoligize about something, I think there are a lot of people (like me) whom like you two a lot, but when we constantly see you guys fighting it doesn't look good.

Actually there was this same exact rumor that happen last year, that they were going to change the name. But, then all the talk blew up, and we haven't heard about it since, like right now.

Who knows what will happen, we will all just have to wait. If Madden does leave the game, there will be good things about it. Not listening to him annoucing a game is great, because he is so boring.

Disturbed's new song to be in Madden

Launch Radio Networks reports: DISTURBED has set "Ten Thousand Fists" as the title of its third album, according to a posting at the band's official website. The album is also tentatively slated for release on September 20, although that date has not been officially confirmed. It's been three years since the group released 2002's "Believe", and frontman David Draiman told Launch the new album is worth the wait. "I personally feel, and I think the rest of the band shares that opinion, that this is the best material we've ever written, and we're ready to do what needs to be done, at a time when it needs to be done," he said.

The title track has been tapped to appear in the next NFL Madden video game.

The Chicago-based quartet recorded 20 songs, from which 13 will be chosen to appear on the new record. A single, possibly a song called "Stricken", should arrive at radio stations sometime this summer.

DISTURBED will begin a four-to-six-week North American tour on August 6 in San Diego, California. The only other two confirmed dates so far are Portland, Oregon on August 10 and the Black Hills Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota on August 12.

DISTURBED will also headline the Jagermeister Music Tour in November, followed by the Music As A Weapon III trek in 2006.

Yea, I really hope they do that, because to have a guy like Chris Berman talk about the scores, and do the fastest 3 minutes would be great addition to the game. It will probably make 2k buyers buy it.
