Online Franchise: Freezing/Dropped Games (somewhat unique issue)

I've done plenty of searching on here and some other forums, and I know many people have had issues with dropped games and with the game freezing. However, my situation as of late is somewhat different and very frustrating.

In season 2 of my online franchise, I've attempted to play 2 games. I made 4 attempts at game 1 and 1 attempt at game 2. Each time, the game has dropped (different times- 4 minutes in; after kickoff twice; halftime- but never during a play) and then the sound has gone out and the screen has frozen. Each time, I have been able to push the guide button and have that pop up, but it's just a white square with no menus. That causes me to have to turn off my system and restart it. But apparently, even before I turn the system off, the Xbox already says I'm offline and gives my opponent a message saying I've quit the game. I learned this by messaging my last opponent through Xbox.com, with the system still on but frozen.

Other pertinent information: I'm pretty sure it's not that my system is breaking down. Madden is the only game doing this. I have played other games, including EA Sports games, for greater lengths of time and have had no such issues. I had played both guys before, and my week 2 opponent kept losing connection (but I stayed in game) while my week 1 opponent and I got off 2 online franchise games without a hitch in our first season.

The 2nd game was last night, obviously post-patch. We each have the most updated rosters. The only thing I can think of is that maybe it has to do with me being on the new dashboard preview and them not being on it. But I'm not so sure about that, since I did previously play my week 1 opponent after I got the dashboard preview. However, it has updated every other day, so who knows what incompatibilities may exist?

I'll cut myself off now, but I wanted to make known my situation and throw out my thoughts on what it might be (purely speculation, of course). A search of Google, this board, and a few other forums has yielded me no answers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

While you don't think it's your console, it might be. I've had 2 RROD experiences, where with a certain game this freezing situation would happen, but I could get into other games and play them without problem.

Then a couple weeks later it got worse, and eventually RROD.

Don't rule out your console just yet, I've been down this road before.

However, you being on the new dashboard could also be the issue too. Unfortunately there isn't going to be much information available cause you're testing a new piece of software.

Good luck.

p.s. Kings suck

If you or your opponent don't have the latest roster update you will be disconnected.
