    We all know that E3 is on going, and Madden is becoming a highly talked about game in the community. Some of the things we have craved for, have finally come to fruition. I know it is two months away, but personally I am excited to see what this year's version of Madden brings to the table. I wanted to gather who is interested in joining one of the top leagues on the site.


    Over the years we have grown from a tiny thought (Madden 10) to a fully functional league. We (Ryty and myself) always strive to create a fun and exciting atmosphere within the league.

    This year the introduction videos have returned for Hard Knocks. As we progress closer to the game, we will be putting together our roster and announcing each member with a short video highlight of their their respective teams.

    Ex:


    Another thing Hard Knocks is proud of is the movement to live streaming every game. In our league, one party must stream their game. This really cuts down on the feeling of being "cheesed". It is also pretty cool when most of the league is watching the Super Bowl.

    So without further adeiu, here are a few questions we have for anyone that is interested:

    *DISCLAIMER*

    BobJr and Ryty you may delete if necessary if you want to wait until I get a system.

    I have still yet to decide on my next-gen purchase. Right now it's 50/50. Just want to get my name in the hat. If it's not too much trouble just contact me once you start hashing out who's in and who's out and I'll give you a definitive answer. But I'd love to come back and play with you guys. M13 HK was really fun for me. Most fun I've had in a Madden league because you're all a great group of guys.

    Top 5 teams you want to be:

    1. Baltimore Ravens
    2. Arizona Cardinals
    3. Houston Texans

    Top 5 teams you don't want to be:

    1. Bengals

    5. None

    Timezone: CST


    Times available to play:


    My availability is a lot more open since I have moved. Any time after 5pm CST during the week. But Sundays are iffy due to Sunday dinner with the folks. I usually big on getting my games in ASAP.

    Hard to say what my schedule will be come August as I am looking for new employment , and current employment schedule will change in mid July. I am going to be 1st shift or similar with whatever job I have going forward so nights are pretty open. Willing to bet I have the lowest AP / SIM % on the site, I am a bit of a nerd :unsure:


    As I mentioned Bob I am a team player , as long as I get a team I do not 100% hate and in division with guys I will have fun with I don't care. I am a Browns fan and have played with Cincy and Denver before.
