New Member - Coach KO - Madden PS3 Name: Kris Oliver Age: 36 Gamertag/PSN (please state whether its PS or XBOX): PS3 - koliver0821 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org AIM: jettagy Time Zone: EDT General Availability: evenings after 8pm edt and weekends Favorite Teams: Patriots and Eagles How did you hear about Tradition Football: I was referred by one of your current members. I was in a few sim leagues with this person for the PS2. Finally decided to give the PS3 a whirl 1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where? I've played in quite a few leagues and was always a member in good standing. I've played in whats called the NDL (NCAA). I am still an active member of the forum but decided to step down due to health issues. My health issues have since changed and I am looking to join a Madden league instead of going back to the NCAA. As I said before, i am still an active member of forums even though Im not playing. Ive also been in quite a few PS2 leagues. The most recent one was this one: http://z9.invisionfree.com/The_Dynasty/index.php?showforum=42. Fairly fast moving league that was probably over 4 years old. 2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online? I dont think I want to answer how long ive played video games..... 30 years or so. Ive played online since the start of madden and Socom. 3. What type of player would you say you are? Skill level, average. My stick skills are below average at best. I enjoy the strategy of the games and coming up with gameplans as well as countering what people do on offense. (Now if could only do that on offense....) I would say Im more of a conservative player. I like competition but I dont cry about losing a game. 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 dont have a problem with age differences/similarities in either direction. I've played against people who almost 20 years younger than me. I think the best way to answer this is that I will treat everyone with respect regardless of their age. I only expect the same courtesy to be passed along to me. I still have respectful relationships with younger players in other leagues to this day. 5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns? I agree with them completely. No concerns 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 live in Nashua, NH. I am a family man. Married 14 years. 4 kids which keeps me busy. My true vices are sports and an occasional video game (madden, ncaa, COD or socom). I am avid soccer player and still very active in competitive leagues. Although its tough to portray on here, I am sarcastic and like to have fun. I do like to poke fun at people but not maliciously. (Its the south Jersey in me). Like to drink Microbrews, not very handy when it comes to fixing stuff around the house, though i try. 7. How active do you plan on becoming with the TF community? I am usually active on every forum on. I tend to have something to say about everything. It might be an attempt at wit or just rant. 8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TF? I am looking to get a competitive league that values sportsmanship and sim play. I like to believe their is some camaraderie and perhaps some friendly trashtalking. 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? This is probably what will happen. I will throw something in my living room. probably a broken PS3 controller. I will finish out the game and probably grab a beer. Smack my wife around and go to bed. OK just kidding. I guess it depends on the issue. If it was gameplay related, I would pause the game and talk to them, on chat or on aim and ask. Heck its possible I misunderstood the rules. If we have a different opinion, I play the game. I might talk to a commish but not to complain, only as FYI as I believe its important for the integrity of the league that something gets mentioned. The severity of the issue and punishment (if any) is at the sole discretion of the commissioner. I just let it go. There are more important things in life. 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 checked out other leagues and I think the OMFL is what I am interested in. Partly because I only have a PS3 I know when of the current owners. I used to have battles with Cali Bucc in our old Franchise days and he could vouch for my playing style and sportsmanship.
