How many people have experienced this?

While playing online and winning someone pauses causing your screen to say 'pause' in upper left corner while panning around the stadium. All controls are locked up, the only thing you can do is restart xbox which gives you a LOSS.

After a little searching online I found someone who posted how to do this glitch and called up EA in redwood city CA. They are testing it as I write this. Has this happened to anyone else? If it has call up EA and complain about it 1-650-628-1500. get someone from technical support. This type of crap will ruin the integrity of online play. I dont care if someone is playing cheap and you wish you could do this... like anything else the privilege will be abused by people who are just sore losers, completely ruining the fun of playing Madden 08 online.

I'm going to tell you all once again, THIS GAME FREEZE IS NOT A CHEAT!
This freeze is occurring immediately after an opponent has either #1 QUIT THE GAME or #2 AN OPPONENT HAS REQUESTED A FRIENDLY QUIT OR HAS CONCEDED DEFEAT.

The problem is with EA Sports. It's not a freaking cheating opponent.

Well i dont know if its cheating or what, but there was the same type of thing last year where they could freeze the game everything locks up on you and you have to quit. Yeah i waited to play ranked games for like 2 weeks to see if there was this kind of glitch, and sure enough my first ranked game pause glitch, I was pissed and sent an email to easupport about it, and they said it would be up to their support team to deem if it was neccessary to make a patch, i would urge everyone to complain to the number he listed or send an email till this crap is fixed.

But there are "opponents" who do this every time they are gonna lose, thus making it a cheat. They do it to avoid losses.

I believe that before I believe someone is doing some kind of code or something and making the game freeze. If you knew anything about computers or servers you'd know that nothing is perfect and shit like that is bound to happen. Think about how many people in the world are accessing EA server at the same time. You really think it won't get ****ed up sometimes. Shit happens man. I got 3 kids and every now and then one of them will pull the plug on the XBOX in the middle of a game. Now I'm labeled a cheater or a quitter? Just get over yourselves and move on to the next game.

Actually...there's a certain way you can do it. If it happens once no big deal, but if some *** keeps doin it, b/c he's a lil ***** and hates to lose and keeps doin it, that's when it becomes a glitch.

nobody is talking about it happening randomly. They're talking about during the fourth quarter when they are about to lose or when they are already losing by like 21 or more

You're right, this POSSIBLY means that the opponent has either quit, or is in the process of conceding defeat. It's my belief that the servers communication of "Your opponent has conceded defeat" or "Your opponent has quit the game" is causing the game to freeze.

Just a few days ago I received an opponents request to concede defeat. I accepted his request and then the game froze in pause mode. Nothing on my controller would work, it was locked up. This tends to make me believe that faulty servers are responsible for the pause glitch. I guess we'll all find out for sure some day.
