    Hey all,

    Myself, bamagrad, and KnightNoles are launching a new 'old' PS3 Madden League for the 2012 version.

    This is going to be a full 32 team league with a focus on user vs user contests, and as of right now we will be the only PS3 Madden league on TSO to offer you an exclusive user vs. user experience.

    I say this is an "old" league because it will be based and guided by the principle's on one of the longest running Madden Leagues in the world. We are a child of theirs you could say.

    We expect this to be a full year round Madden league with a depth and immersion rivaled by very few leagues out there.

    If you are interested in ownership of a team please post here or PM me directly. We expect to get the ball rolling in time for the Madden 12 Launch.

    Thanks,

    Big D

    I've got you down. We are doing a team draft based on when you signed up most likely. So far nobody but myself has mentioned interest in the Saints ;) But I could possible go another route.
