    Don't know if you Beta users saw the e-mail form MS, but they have fixed the dreaded Pause bug. There is now a 90 second timer that counts down when you press the Pause button. If you don't un-Pause the game within 90 seconds, you are given a loss and the other team is given a Win.
    Here is the actual quote from the e-mail:

    Yes, that's definitely great news, but not the best solution, IMHO. I think the timer's a little short, for the times when you really *need* to pause the game. It also won't completely eliminate pausers, if the person is diligent enough. It would also be nice to have some sort of "mutual pause", where the other person could agree to an extended pause. Still, a step in the right direction...

    I just wish they'd give us *some* info on the divergence issues. They're a major PITA...

    Very good but isn't 90 seconds kind of short. What if you need a bathroom break?

    I am very impressed with the Xbox Live team - they listened to the Beta users and implemented this thing quickly!
    It gives me hope for some Friends List improvements.

    I read an article in Sports Illustrated a couple of years ago about the Stadium Pal, and it was absolutely hilarious! I wish I could find it.

    As I recall, it was the first had account of both a man and a woman using it.

    Can anyone confirm whether or not if you look at your play online does it show up on the other persons screen? I find there are a at least 1-2 times a game where I want to do this and I haven't been able to because I'm afraid of the other person seeing my play.

    Mike, do you mean by pulling both triggers to see the passing routes? Or do you mean calling your play before the huddle? I know they can't see which play you call, but I don't know if they can see the routes if you pull them up at the LOS. The next time I play online I'll check.

    If you're talking about your opponent seeing your routes (left trigger), then no, they do not. They do see the pulled-out screen, though...

    Cool. That makes me feel much better about the game. I thought A guy told me he could see it . I must have been mistaken.

    Mike,

    I was checking out my routes when I played you. You never seen my routes though, correct?

    I was under the assumption that all your opponent sees is the pulled back view.
