    How did you hear about Tradition Sports: was sent a link from a friend I work with.
    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where? Have a annual madden and ncaa league with co-workers and have played in a MLB the show league with a few guys as well.
    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online?
    Playing games as early as pong. first sports game was Tecmo bowl/Tecmo Superbowl.
    Been playing online since 2001
    3. What type of player would you say you are? I usually only play a few ranked matches on each game until players figure out the loop holes in each game then that's my que to start my off-line stuff. I'm strictly sim style. I can say that the rules posted here would lend themself to my style.
    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 have played in leagues with guys who range in ages from 18 to 44. I do realize there's a difference in perspective, however, I just keep an open mind. That's worked before so ill stick to that. I like the idea of just being able to play in a league and not have to worry about if someone is playing me sim or not.
    In the past if i had a question about someones play style i would ask that person, and if that doesnt work, then i clear it up with the commish of that league.
    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns?
    none at all. In fact I see that there are new rules here that I've having seen before that I really like. And the video description really helped in understanding the rules aswell. Thanks you for 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. My name is David Bafford, I'm a father of 4, 19yr son, 14yr daughter, 9 yr daughter and a 5 yr son. My wife is a school teacher of 14 years and we've been married for 16 years. I played highschool football basketball and baseball at White County High school from 1990 -1994. Played college ball at Tennessee Tech for 1 year before tearing my right knee in spring practice. End of sports career. Now my athletic ability lends itself to church league softball and mens league aswell. I use video games to fulfill my desires play organized sports. It's how I cope. :)
    7. Fitting into the community is vital to the experience here at TSO. How do you see yourself fitting into our community? I'm a stickler for having stability. I like to set my foundation as respectfull, and friendly to everybody. If ask to help, I'm more than willing. I have been know to be a league doorman from friends due to my, "over activity" that's usually because I treat my teams as though there a part of my family.
    8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TSO? A place to find peace of mind, and talk sports games and be the home of many of my dynasty's to come.
    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? Well If I question anything I like to first assume it was a mistake, if it happens again, I will ask in a professional and respectfull manner. If I feel aggression as a response then I leave it alone and finish the game and send word to the commish to investigate.
    10. Have you checked out the different leagues here at TSO? Which leagues (if any) are you interested in? What is your preferred league:
    I'm really interested in MADDEN and NCAA leagues, and MLB the show leagues. I've looked at a madden 25 league and looked at a NCAA League. Liked the requirement of posting media after a game and about your team. I'm a huge fan of the statistics side of sports. That's probably the whole reason I even play sports games.

    Hey man we will be looking for 2 new coaches in the league Shake n Bake. We are waiting on the patch so we don't mess up the file and I don't know how long that will be(I know this doesn't help if you want to get into one ASAP but its a good league). If you are interested contact HarkTheSound or Roggie for some info.

    Well :doodie:

    I'm finding that most of the ps3 leagues are full aswell. That's alright though, I'm putting my name in some hats. Thanks for the offer on the 360 league. I'd do it for sure if I had one.
