It means that you are doing something that would be of a grievance to the other player. Like constantly go for it on fourth down and such

I am perplexed as to how you can possibly grief someone in Madden other than being too good.

Take the fourth down nonsense. I will never understand how taking a risk is griefing. You have four chances to go for it and lose field position. Your opponent is playing defense right? Where is the "exploit"? I've read topics of people complaining about the "Vick kids" who run all day on them. Well... learn how to play defense and use a proper spy scheme . Vick doesn't have superpowers or anything.

Just play Madden with your friends if you have your own imaginary rules you wish to play by.

Going for it constantly on 4th is just trying to lose. Theres a reason that real NFL teams never do it... its a losing proposition. So just messing with your opponent while not trying to actually win is considering griefing. Constantly pausing or doing penalties does it, too.

I'm thinking it's a EA server issue, b/c when I first booted the game up yesterday it wouldn't connect and now it randomly disconnects from the EA server. Also anyone finish an online match then have the menu and in-game music stop playing?

Glad they finally have monitors in place to catch people like the OP.

The theory of going for it on 4th down is irrelevant because I always punt and play completely sim.

I'm in two sim leagues for online franchise and I always punt even on 4th and inches.

Yes this is fine. I am 100% for a group of individuals who decide to play a certain way being able to do it. I really do support this.

I DO think someone who constantly takes the risk of going for it on 4th down a "griefer" I think you have a bad definition of the word "griefing".

usually when that message is shown to me it is after a person fails to hike the ball after 3 or 4 delay of games.

Ehhhhh wrong! This happened to me on first play of game after a kick of I did a rushing play gained about 5 yards then we got disconnected and then my opponent messages me said I was just kicked for grieving so how did I do something wrong but doing a running play lmao and gaining 5 yards this games servers has many problems glitches they working on a fix
