Problems saving and loading games

Once I chhose a roster in Franchise mode, I cannot save them. Furthermore even if I do get to progress to week 1 of the regular season which is hit and miss, the game sticks when loading say week two's game. It just says loading at the bottom and I've left it that way for up to 30 minutes and nothing even happens and I have to start all over. Please help.

    My problem is simular and may be related. After I save a franchise when I go to play another game it keeps saying it is loading, but never does load up. If I delete the franchise file and play a game it works. the same thing happens again and again.

    I have the same issue.  Although it just started.  Play a Francise game once you complete week one in hangs and you can't save or continue.

    Do you have an XBox 360 with a hard drive?

    How much space does your hard drive have left?

    Are you using a roster you've created or one you've downloaded from the EA lockers? I know on NCAA 2009 when they first released rosters they were causing systems to crash and XBox had to release a patch. For a start make sure you have all the Microsoft patches installed on your XBox.

Madden 09

When I first started the game I think remember downloading a update. But I think it was a roster update. How do you download the up date?

This is a three man franchise league. When we got to week 17 of the first season and played our games, that was the last time the franchise would save. After reaching the playoffs playing my game the franchise would not save at all. It would freeze up. Then if you try to simulate the playoffs. It would freeze up. After playing with it we were able to get to the end, but when advancing to the off-season it would freeze up. Finally, figured out when we got to pro bowl to save it and it worked no freeze-ups. We were able to advance to the off season after that, did all off-season stuff and got to the preseason. Now when trying to simulate preseason it will freeze up. What the heck.

Help with PS3

EAsports says that there is a new roster update that will help this problem. I had the same exact problem when i would try and head into the offseason.
Their answer was that "there weren't enough players in the free agent pool". and that's why the game is freezing.
so, there are, you have to download the new roster update and start a new franchise
