Madden 09 roster update breakdown released

As you may have read, EA Sports will offer a release day roster update on XBox Live for Madden 09. The update will correct now-inaccurate rosters (like Favre to the Jets, Shockey to the Saints) and update attributes of players based on their preseason performance, such as the 83-to-85 increase Ricky Williams has received. Also, some players numbers have been corrected to reflect the jerseys they actually wear.

Here is the complete list of updates (minus the jersey number changes) from PastaPadre.com.

I have a wireless router on my XBOX 360, and whenever i go to play madden online, it says the EA servers arent able to connect me..
this has been happening for the past 3 days or so,

Is it my connection or are the EA servers messed up?

When the roster updates why doesn't it put Chad Pennington and Rudi Johnson etc. on the right teams?

Does anyone have a definitive date on when the 2nd roster update will come or does anyone have a link to show all the transactions that have happened since the last roster update?

i realize that most people play online and have a gold account, but i still think it's stupid that you basically have to pay to get the roster updates for madden. why can't it just be programmed to check for an updated roster when the disc spins up?

i don't care about online myself.

Yes , you have to have a Gold account to get the roster update. Right now Amazon is selling 12 month cards for 40 bucks, which is a really good price.

People who can't play online should check out their NAT settings. Here is a link.

I know it's a pain, but it's the internet. Also, complain to EA about the roster updates... maybe they'll fix it with a patch?

PS3 expensive for nothing? shitty games? i do recall the ps3 having the same games as the 360 and them having the same graphics so good one smart shit! And does the 360 come with built in bluetooth? free online play? didn't think so, but you do get a cool headset to talk to yourself as you're sitting at home pretending you have friends cause you're both good at halo

You're not very good at "recalling". lol fighting over which console is better is for five year olds so go suck your thumb or somthing. peace

I've had my 360 for almost a year now, I've played online with it many times, but then all of a sudden it stopped working. I did the connection test and the result said internet adaptor disconneceted. The ethernet cables and modem are perfectly fine because I've tested them on my computer. Plus the Ethernet light on the back of the sysyem does not light up anymore when I plug it in. Does anyone what is wrong?
