Each Bug will have 2 numbers next to it.  The first number is severity the
second is rarity.  Some have reasons why they have such a high or low number.

__________________
|Pro Bowl Bug| 5/5\____________________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Winning will give you a milestone, but you can't get credit for it.  There is 
|a bug in the Franchise Mode of the game.  One of the Crib Milestones is to win
|the Pro Bowl.  However, once you get to the Pro Bowl it will not allow you to 
|use your own profile.                                                         
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: Go To Options, Then Load/Save and load your profile.  This will let you
|use it to play the Pro Bowl.  Go into VIP and set it as active.  This may
|cause it to duplicate itself.  Don't save the dupliate.  Also, you still won't
|get credit for winning the Pro Bowl.  Apparenltly, if you create a team
|named AFC or NFC and make their hometown be Honolulu, HI then you can play
|during the season and when you win a game it will count as winning the Pro
|Bowl.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


____________________
|Trading Glitch| 4/5\__________________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Although players make a lopsided trade all the time, they don't expect the CPU
|to do it.  The CPU will make trades on it's own, usually involving a great
|player for a mediocre player.  Eli Manning and Shaun Ellis are usually
|involved.                                                        
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: Turn off Preseason, this will limit the time the CPU has to make trades.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

________________________________
|Sacks Don't Subtract Yards| 3/5\______________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Holding a team to zero total yds is a milestone.  When you sack the
|Quarterback it should subtract the amount of yards he lost from the passing
|yards.  However in the game it won't effect it at all, nor will it change  
|total yards.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: No known - Take control of opposing team during offense to keep them from
|gaining ground to get milestone.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

________________________
|Astronomical Stats| 3/2\______________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|A staple of every sports game ever made.  Occasionally when a player makes a
|play or during simmed games it will mess up how many yards or points a player
|got.  So if he ran 5 yards it might show up as 50,000.  May not be a permanent 
|change.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: Reload Game Or Deal
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


____________________
|Permanant Subs| 2/4\__________________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|During a game you can sub players by formation or package.  The problem is
|sometimes when doing this they will always be subbed at the beginning of EVERY
|game.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: Just remember to fix it before every game.  Try using Roster Manager and
|see if that works.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

____________________
|Mr. Freeze  |   5/3\__________________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Game will not play, will just freeze.  Also, if you go to Transactions in the
|menus it will usually freeze the game.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: Some people have found out that ESPN 2K5 will not play well in certain
|versions of the PS/2, simply buy a different $150 piece of machinery.  =)
|Make sure your laser is clean.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

____________________
|Onside Weird  | 1/3\__________________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|When someone onside kicks the ball, they or you may get control of the ball
|even if no one has the ball.  IE. You onside kick, and it says you recover,
|but you see the ball rolling off somewhere.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: You'll just have to deal with it.  Only a graphical issues
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

___________________________________
|Multi Team Crib Stuff SNAFU  | 1/4\___________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|When you buy a team item in the Crib of either the Texans or the Bears it will
|purchase the same item for the other team.  IE. You buy a Texan's Hat, you
|will also have a Bears Hat.  Also, when you buy Dallas Cowboy jerseys you'll
|also get Seattle Seahawks jerseys.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: No Known....free stuff is great though.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

____________________________
|25th Win Not Counted  | 1/4\__________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|When you buy a team item in the Crib of either the Texans or the Bears it will
|purchase the same item for the other team.  IE. You buy a Texan's Hat, you
|will also have a Bears Hat.  Also, when you buy Dallas Cowboy jerseys you'll
|also get Seattle Seahawks jerseys.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: No Known....free stuff is great though.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

_______________________
|Clipping Killaz  | 5/3\_______________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|When you or your opponent is called for the penalty clipping, you will lose
|yards.  For example if before a play your running back had 10 yards, and
|during a 30 yard run you get called for clipping, he will have -20 yards.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: Turn off Clipping
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

_________________________
|QB Kick Returners  | 5/2\_____________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|In some people's Franchises the kick returns are done by the quarterbacks.
|Ever think you'd see Steve McNair run one back?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: Change Special Teams Position Depth Chart to keep it from reoccuring.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

_________________________
|Steve-O Butts In  |  1/2\_____________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Whenever someone is talking during the game, there is a chance that Steve-O
|will say a line instead of that person.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: No Known
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


__________________________
|Susie Kolber Butts In|1/2\____________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Occasionally she'll butt in while the commentators are talking to talk about
|an injury.  Occasionally she'll start an infinite loop and keep repeating the 
|same thing over and over again.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: No Known
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

__________________________
|Disappearing Players| 5/1\____________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Very rarely players will simply vanish from your team for no reason at all.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: No Known
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

__________________________
|What Was That Again?| 1/3\____________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Sometimes when you choose a play you'll have to choose it again.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: Just repick the play.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

__________________________
|No Team Ticker   |    1/3\____________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Occasionally on the ESPN Ticker at the bottom of your screen you'll see a 
|score pop up.  The score won't have a team or any highlights next to it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: No Known
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

__________________________
|Misspelled Banners    1/5\____________________________________________________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|If you play in Arrowhead they have a banner for Dante Hall.  The banner reads
|Donte's Inferno.  They used an O instead of an A.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
|Fix: No Known
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
