Name: Mark Brogowicz Age: 34 Gamertag/PSN: PSN, Brogowicz Email: Mark@Golf101.com AIM: Skype - brogowicz Time Zone: Pacific General Availability: Intermittently during the day on weekdays, after 8:30 PM PT every night Favorite Teams: Michigan State, Detroit Lions How did you hear about Tradition Football: Referred by a friend 1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where? Yes - Online Dynasty for several years. 2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online? Video games since Atari, online since NCAA 2004 on PS2. 3. What type of player would you say you are? Respectful and competitive. I take a knee when it's appropriate, play with class and play to win. I'm regularly in the top 2,000 and have been as high as the top 100 over the years. 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? I'm 34 and feel like this is the right place for me and my preferences. 5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns? I have not. I'll be sure to do that. 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 grew up in Detroit until I left for school at Michigan State. I got my degree in computer science and moved to San Diego. I have lived and worked here for the last 12-13 years. I'm an avid football fan and love playing online football. I'm married with 2 kids and find time to balance my time between family, work and entertainment. 7. How active do you plan on becoming with the TF community? I plan to contribute my fair share. I'm not crazy about forums, but I'm a big fan of my online dynasties and those that play with me. I build analytics software and I think I could make some contributions to (1) improve upon the systems used at Tradition Sports (forums are not meant to do everything) and (2) provide some great tools for visualizing and analyzing roster depth. 8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TF? Hopefully a long-term online dynasty with several other guys that take it as seriously as I do. 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? If his in-game violations were severe, I would probably quit the game. In most cases, however, I'm a fighter and would do everything I could (within my own guidelines) to win. There are few things more rewarding than beating a cheeser with clean play. After the game, I would report him to ensure that he was removed or reprimanded. 10. Have you checked out the different leagues here at TF? Have you seen anything that you want to be a part of? I have not.
