Well the idea of the madden ranking is a pretty good one, how you can unlock points, options, create-a-player, choices etc....but it really messes up your franchise. If you have a Madden gamer level that is pretty high, and you decide to start a new franchise, if you go into Free Agents you will notice a bunch of players ranked 99 who are 21-22 years old. These are actually hall of fame players that you have unlocked with your madden gamer level that the game automatically adds to your free agents. There is no way to stop this from happening, and if you are in the middle of a season the game will still add them to free agents. This is an incredible nuisance because I do not want these players on my team, I want the actual roster of the team I am playing with. Also, I dont want another team that I am playing against to have a bunch of these 99 HoF-ers either. Has anyone found out a way to circumvent this or work around it?
