#2 Why would it be "an", isn't an only used if the next word starts with a vowel?

Why would they use the bengals logo for this? Since when do they win?

You still use an "an" in front of EA. And they used the Bengals logo for the reference to Charlie Sheen's "tiger blood" for anybody that didn't know or forgot. Pretty clever, EA.

its definitely a, not an, its not based on the sound of the first letter its based on if the first letter is a vowel.

This is why english is so confusing. The "rules" change.

How is this unlocked everytime I go to free agents it just asks if I'm sure I want to sign the player it doesn't ask me if I want to bid anything.

For those who have trouble, this is what to do.
1. Sim Preseason and regular season.
2. Sim Playoffs and probowl and everything else up till it asks you about free agency (This is past retirement session and combine scouting).
3. When it asks about free agency, choose the first option, which takes you to the free agency list.
4. Select I want to bid and start clicking like mad on every player till it ends, once it ends, then the achievement is yours.

Side Note: Set salary cap to no limit just in case you can't afford them.

Win a Free Agency...
Win an FA...
depends on if you say "free agency" or if you say "eff ay"
I think they intend for you to say "Free Agency"
