Everyone, In two days Madden 13 news will be released at E3. I fully expect there to be an explosion of interest from the membership here. Since the TMFL will be the only Premier Madden 13 league for Xbox 360 many existing members of TSO will be interested. Every spot in the TMFL will simply go to the best member available, as determined by me. The existing TMFL members have had multiple seasons under my leadership to show me exactly what they have to offer. If they were an exceptional member for Madden 12, it will be hard to unseat them. For Madden 13, the TMFL will continue to be run by me. I will appoint two assistant commissioners to help with the day-to-day business of the TMFL, one for the NFC and one for the AFC. At this point in time, fuzzyl0gic has one of those positions filled. The following will be requirements for Madden 13. If you cannot commit to this list, please do not waste my time or risk someone else's position by applying: The TMFL will run year round, your commitment is a year long one. The TMFL will continue to be a 32 member Madden league, on a 48 hour advance cycle. You WILL have a user game every 48 hours. The TMFL uses a feedback system to monitor game play. That will continue and participation will be mandatory. People who are playing as a team they enjoy are better members. Teams will be decided by me, in an effort to maximize the number of people getting there favorite. However, no guarantee is made you will get your favorite. If team selection is critical to your involvement, don't apply. Good leagues generate good content. Please expect to participate on the forums and generate content. The medium of communication at TSO is the written word. If you cannot type full sentences, punctuate and put forth a coherent message, don't bother. I hate when people get lazy replying from cell phones. This is the NFL, you will lose games. The league is about friendship, not winning. People who cannot lose gracefully will not be tolerated. You might have a 0-16 season, can you tolerate that? In the end, the league is run by me and I always have the final decision. If you are still interested, please complete the following: What is your availability? Please list your top three team choices (real life favorite first). Please list any leagues you plan to be involved with for the next year. If you are selected, what do you bring to the equation? Typically, what is your game play strength? Typically, what is your game play weakness? Typically, what type of offensive and defensive scheme do you run? What is your biggest "sim game play" pet peeve? Note, I am posting this a couple days ahead of the Madden 13 announcements so the existing TMFL members can get a head start.
