and why would we? After the draft they're just another random player. They're aren't mentioned again unless they win an award or are cut. They don't have commentary lines, no personalities, no way to feel a connection to that player. At least have commentary mention the storyline players by name.

I don't see why some think that should be removed. A guy who breaks his leg should be a risk, but not always bust, and not always be a superstar. GM/Owner personalities should then dictate if they're risk averse vs team needs, etc and dynamically affect where that player is taken. I like the flavor, even if it's an illusion. Removing storylines just makes CFM seem even more sterile than some have already complained about even with the tweets, recaps and storylines filling the feeds. Fixes? Absolutely.
They're kinda cool for the draft, but it would be really great if the storyline kept going throughout a player's career. That's my main gripe.. once the draft is over, you never hear the storylines mentioned again.

I'm just sitting here waiting for EA to add a weekly Sportscenter show, highlights from other games during breaks for your game, and announcers that reference past games/accomplishments like UFC 3 on last gen. Oh and homefield advantage should probably mean something in CFM. I think it was done well in NCAA 05 when the screen would shake and it was hard to audible.

Re: Was/has there been any franchise info released?

One underrated little thing about online that I do hate is that teams with retractable roofs (Colts, Cowboys, Cardinals) don't have the option to play with the roof open. I mean, the stadiums are already built into the game, the stadiums are even built on online user games, so why can't we do this in Online?

They had the mechanisms to provide this and more in previous iterations. The Tony Bruno show, weapons, etc, those things added personality to each player.

Re: Was/has there been any franchise info released?

Honestly, and I'm sure many of you will agree with what I'm going to say..... We all know EA.... I guarantee you this year nothing besides practice will be fixed so next year they can say in an E3 interview "We totally fixed CFM and gave the players everything they asked for" ... and that be what they do for next years game... smh. We may get WR/DB jostling, enhanced animations like gang tackling and finally getting rid of the robotic movements (don't hold your breath) and a "overall" aka FIX to CFM's problems/lack of content.

I'm nothing but an offline CFM player and try to make it as real as possible, but I'm also a realist when it comes to knowing now.. not hoping.. KNOWING they won't do what we want or make it as real as the NFL actually is...

hell people have been asking that the stands not be 100% capacity for years now and they have told us the NFL doesn't want that to be seen in the game... so even preseason, or if you play with the Jags (yes bc they suck) The stands must be 100% full and can't show any sort of attendance in the CFM... that's bull**** IMO.
