    How did you hear about Tradition Sports: Spayer419 told me about it on OS.

    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where? I have been in many online leagues before in NCAA football. None in the other games though. I've been playing in OD's ever since they launched in NCAA 09. Most of the ones I played in didn't last long because most of the users weren't dedicated.

    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online?I have been playing video games since the age of 6 and have been playing online since the age of 14 or 15.

    3. What type of player would you say you are? I am a very realistic gamer. What I mean by that is I play fair because i know the rules of football. I played 14 years of organized football and I've been watching the game since the day I was born. I know the rules inside and out. I play SIM style and don't get mad at losing. I realize that you win some and you lose some, thats just part of life.

    4. Our community consists of a more mature bunch and the average age is somewhere around 28-30 years old. How do you feel about any differences or similarities between our population and your age? Age doesn't matter to me. I've always been used to hanging out with older people my whole life because I like their maturity.

    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns? I have read the rules and guidelines. One question i have is about the playclock. It was never specified if we could use the accelerated clock in the adjustments section (L1 on playbook screen) in game. If we use that will we be penalized? I mean if we use it while having a huge lead or trying to hold the ball with a few minutes left in the game so our opponent won't get another opportunity.

    6. Please tell us a little about yourself. We want to get to know you and hope that you will be around for a long time. I am a football fanatic. I LOVE the New York Jets. I have owned a few dogs and a guinea pig. I am love animals and currently work for a Veterinary clinic. I am working to become a chef and currently attend a culinary arts institute.

    7. Fitting into the community is vital to the experience here at TSO. How do you see yourself fitting into our community? I am a very active person and I enjoy conversing with others. I find myself fitting in quite well and believe i can grow and learn a lot from the users who are currently here.

    8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TSO? I hope to get to be in a great Online Dynasty or multiple ones that last for years (in game years) and hope to meet other football fanatics who will play fair because they, like me, love the game so much.

    9. Situation: You are participating in a league game when your opponent clearly breaks the league or site rules. What do you do? How do you handle the situation? I would send them a quick message telling them they violated a rule and warning them not to do it again. Maybe they just made a mistake and forgot one of the rules. We all make a mistake from time to time. If it were to happen again i would contact the commissioner and have him deal with it or contact a TS leader on this website.

    10. Have you checked out the different leagues here at TSO? Which leagues (if any) are you interested in? What is your preferred league setup? I have checked a few and I am interested in Spayer419's league, "Chompions League". I'm not sure what my preferred league setup is. As long as everyone plays fair I'm ok. I usually play on All-American though with tweaked sliders and a slow game pace (to make fast players fast and slow players slow).

    App approved welcome to TSO.

    In answer to your question on the rules, most leagues or dynasties have their own specific rules for when you can run the clock. Usually it is limited to the last few minutes of the 4th.
