I just started having this same issue this week after weeks of it never happening, although I've also noticed I get auto-save files that don't have a date when it happens - that field is blank.  It's like the auto-save isn't saving correctly...which I wouldn't mind so much if I could just shut it off.

I have this exact problem.

ive tried taking the console offline which hasnt done anything. powering the console down completely and unplugging it.
date and time are correct, but I doubt that would be the problem considering i have the same issues when the xbox is not connected to a network.

Eventually every offline franchise I play, the save file becomes 'corrupt', in that I cant load it, cant save over it and cant delete it.

I now have about a dozen save files of previous franchise modes that i cant do anything with.

At the moment the autosave file for my current save still works so I have just saved a new file... just waiting for that to fail as well.

I have the exact same problem. This did not solve it. This problem is not solved in any way.

I have the same exact problem as well.  The most frustrating thing I have ever experienced in my over 20 years of playing EA Sports games.  This needs to be corrected with a patch.  It renders playing the game impossible since I cannot make my own saves!
