    Cool, I did have one question about player management. Is everything done through Madden in game or is a site like XFN going to be used?

    Good question. Everything to do with the franchise will be managed with the online franchise. The only thing that we manage externally are player re-signings. We limit re-signings to allow for a competitive free agent pool and to force teams to manage their roster and cap accordingly.

    What is your previous league experience (if any)?
    Currently in year 1 of MLE dynasty league on NCAA. Previous league experience with other sites, trying to find a more stable place for online sim league-play.

    Please list ALL of the leagues that you are currently involved in.
    MLE - NCAA '13

    How did you hear about us?
    From a player in my personal online NCAA league. Have played in a couple Madden leagues with him before. He recommended me to this site.

    Why do you want to join the 12th Man Football?
    Sounds like a good league. Would like to get in a non-premier league or two before I decide to make the jump to "premier".

    We pride ourselves in respect and communication. Why would you be a good addition to the league?
    Running my own NCAA league for the past 3 years, I definitely know how much of a hassle it is trying to get everyone to communicate. Nothing worse than when 1 person throws off the whole thing. I have multiple contact options, and will be very active in the forums. I would have no issue with respect or communication.

    What does “simulation” football mean to you?
    Playing the game virtually, the way you would play it on the real gridiron. No cheap, trick plays. No constant QB scrambling, no glitch kick returns, no multiple no huddle plays. Even balance of run/pass attack. And no nano blitzing! Play fair, play hard, play REAL!

    Which is more important to you… Winning or playing a game fairly and coming up short?
    "You play to win the game!" ... Lol. I'm not going to be a bum and say winning isn't important. Because it definitely is. But if you have to cheat and play like a bum in order to win, than I would rather come up short.

    Are you willing to play with any team that is available?
    Yes. Huge Saints fan, so I would love to have them. But coming in this close to the Madden drop I'm sure it won't be a likely scenario. I'd take whichever team was available. Does not matter.

    We advance the online franchise every three days (72 hours) and require each owner to manage all aspects of their franchise. Will you be able to meet our advance schedule?
    Definitely so. 72 hours is standard online advance time I think.

    Played in a variety of leagues none run off of any site, tired of that want an actual well run league
    Please list ALL of the leagues that you are currently involved in.
    None
    How did you hear about us?
    Browsing the site
    Why do you want to join the 12th Man Football?
    Interested in a competitive league that also is sim and active, people who care about the game, not the score. There is a difference a huge one
    We pride ourselves in respect and communication. Why would you be a good addition to the league?
    Because im willing to make posts(interviews, team newsletters, etc.) And do anything i can to make this league feel like the real nfl. I may lose
    What does “simulation” football mean to you?

    Means running what your team runs, what would work for you, but not going 90-10 or anything like that. It means playing the game like a real team would, if i got a 99 rb and a 70 qb im prob gonna run more than throw, same for the other way.
    Which is more important to you… Winning or playing a game fairly and coming up short?
    Fairly and coming up short(may happen often XD)
    Are you willing to play with any team that is available?
    Yes

    Please list ALL of the leagues that you are currently involved in.
    Chompions League-NCAA Football 13 & In The Trenches-NCAA Football 13
    How did you hear about us?
    I heard about it thru the websiteWhy do you want to join the 12th Man Football?
    I'm interested in joining a "sim" style league for Madden 13. I have had alot of fun doing NCAA 13 and i would to do the same for Madden
    We pride ourselves in respect and communication. Why would you be a good addition to the league? I have no issue when it comes to communication and respect. I'm active when it comes to league forums and i like posting game summeries.
    What does “simulation” football mean to you?
    "Simulation" football to me is playing the game the way it's supposed to be played. No shortcuts or cheating. Playing the game fair and square because that's more fun than winning or losing. Also having respect for your opponent is good as well.
    Which is more important to you… Winning or playing a game fairly and coming up short?To me playing the game fairly and coming up short is more than winning. Playing fairly says that you have respect for your opponent and the league that you are in. Everyone loses a game here and there, but the fun and enjoying the game is more important than winning.
    Are you willing to play with any team that is available?Yes
    We advance the online franchise every three days (72 hours) and require each owner to manage all aspects of their franchise. Will you be able to meet our advance schedule?
    Yes i am every three days is perfect

    What is your previous league experience (if any)? I've played in multiple leagues but the leagues were created by friends and family members.

    Please list ALL of the leagues that you are currently... None at the moment.

    How did you hear about us? I saw it through the forums.

    Why do you want to join the 12th Man Football? Every year I always try to join one league that best interests me , usually its hard to find a really good one which means I just make one with friends. This league seems faboulous and really interestes me and I would love to be apart of it.


    We pride ourselves in respect and communication. Why would you be a good addition to the league? I would be a good addition because I will always show respect. I love to post post game reports, interviews etc...

    What does “simulation” football mean to you? "Simulation" football to me is playing the game the way its suppose to be played. Not trying to pass pass pass, just play the game right.

    Which is more important to you… Winning or playing a game fairly and coming up short? Playing the game fairly and coming up short. I rather play right and play my heart out than doing the same play over and over and winning a game that way.

    Are you willing to play with any team that is available? Yeah, I don't mind what team I get.

    We advance the online franchise every three days (72 hours) and require each owner to manage all aspects of their franchise. Will you be able to meet our advance schedule? That is the perfect amount of days. I am all for it.

    Why do you want to join the 12th Man Football?
    I take pride in being a solid active owner, and I solely prefer to be involved with well run leagues.

    We pride ourselves in respect and communication. Why would you be a good addition to the league?
    My job allows for ample computer time, which allows me to be active on the m.boards and my daily life allows for plenty of free time in the way of scheduling league games.

    What does “simulation” football mean to you?
    The art of imitation...in this case the NFL. Trying to play a game as realistic to the product on the field as possible. Playing the game as real life...and not an arcade video game.

    Which is more important to you… Winning or playing a game fairly and coming up short?

    Friendly...Respectful...Competitive game play. Losing is a real part of competition, you have to take the wins and losses in stride. I never understand people who don't.

    Are you willing to play with any team that is available?

    Depends on the scenario
    We advance the online franchise every three days (72 hours) and require each owner to manage all aspects of their franchise. Will you be able to meet our advance schedule?

    I am very active and have always been an owner that is "on the ball". I do go out of town at times, but nothing out of the ordinary, and I'm always good at arranging things and planning ahead.

    From the looks of it, looks like there's already 32 teams ready to go. If someone were to drop out tho, I'd be ready & waiting!​

    What is your previous league experience (if any)? I did Madden leagues probably about 5 yrs ago, but nothing recently. I've also done leagues in other sports as well tho.

    Please list ALL of the leagues that you are currently involved in. 2 TSO leagues: The Pride (NCAAF) and Serie Futbol (FIFA)

    How did you hear about us? TSO site

    Why do you want to join the 12th Man Football? Been looking forward to online madden for a while, but never liked the online franchise format of old. Pumped for connected careers tho.

    We pride ourselves in respect and communication. Why would you be a good addition to the league? I have great respect for everyone I play against and always play w/ a good attitude, win or lose. I may also be interested in adding extra league content down the road too. I also make sure to get my games in, so scheduling wouldn't be much of an issue.

    What does “simulation” football mean to you? Play the way they do in real life. Also play with a high level of sportsmanship, and hear out and adapt my gameplay if people ever have complaints.

    Which is more important to you… Winning or playing a game fairly and coming up short? I'd rather play a sim game fairly. Winning's great, but I play here at TSO for the sim-style games. I know I'm not going to win every game, and sportsmanship comes first here.

    Are you willing to play with any team that is available? Yes. Although I do like one team in particular in case you didn't already notice :)

    We advance the online franchise every three days (72 hours) and require each owner to manage all aspects of their franchise. Will you be able to meet our advance schedule? Definitely. I'm in a few other leagues now and am well aware of advance schedules. I'm really looking forward to this league, and ready to get some games in!​

    Thanks for your application, Tyler! You are correct that we are at capacity with 32 owners. However, we will be holding a check-in before the game drops and you never know if/when a vacancy will occur. Given your participation and experience with other leagues here at TSO; we'll put you on the waiting list without the need for a tryout game. In the meantime, let us know if any questions or concerns and feel free to follow-up on the league status once we approach the Madden 13 release. Your interest is appreciated!

    Adrian, your lack of league experience on TSO will require a tryout. We have just recently appointed other recruiters, so I will have one of them get in contact with you. Please be advised that our applicant selection is not based on chronological order, but rather, we use our discretion to determine which of the applicants on the waiting list would best fit the league. As of right now, there is only one other person on the waiting list.

    Gentlemen, please see the above post from applicant AoHigh5. Scikotic is going to be unavailable for the next couple of weeks. Can one of you please get in contact with Adrian so that he can get a tryout game in? Thanks!

    We pride ourselves in respect and communication. Why would you be a good addition to the league?

    What does “simulation” football mean to you?
    Realism. Realistic stats, realistic playing styles. As close to what we see on Sunday's as possible.

    Thanks for your application, Brandon! Based on your TSO and 12th Man applications, your idea of what an online league should be and how league games should be played is exactly what we are looking for in our owners. You are correct that we are at capacity with 32 owners. However, it is well before the game is released. We will be holding a check-in very soon and we never know if/when a vacancy will occur. One of the guys on the recruiting team or I will be in contact with you to setup a scrimmage for a tryout game. In the meantime, let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Feel free to follow-up on the league status once we approach the Madden 13 release to see if any vacancies arise. Your interest is appreciated!
