    How did you hear about Tradition Football: Was looking for a good place to meet up with other mature sports gamers online and I noticed this site..

    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where? I have participated in leagues and dynasties online with friends (NCAA11 and madden)

    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online? I have been playing video games since about 1983. I have been a fan of the NCAA series from the days of Bill Walsh College Football and have enjoyed sports games the most as I have continued to game throughout my life. I have been online (Live) for about 5 years but hadn't really been a huge online gamer up until the past few years.

    3. What type of player would you say you are? I like to consider myself to be a realistic/sim style player, i hate Cheezing, I hate money play exploiting even if it will win me a game. I'd rather lose playing right than win cheezing. I understand that sometimes you are going to get beat and sometimes you are going to get beat bad due to matchups, playing styles etc. I make sure that I play the same with or without the lead.

    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? The majority of friends I game with are in this age range (maybe a couple years older) and it works well. One thing I want to get myself away from are the non-stop yappy younger gamers that have made so many of my online gaming sessions just downright awful.

    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns? Yes I have read them and I don't have any problems.

    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 Maine, I work in special education and I'm a huge sports fan (pretty much anything). I love gaming on my free time and I am looking for a group of people to game with who enjoy the game for what it is and who can have fun while still trying to win. I'm a real laid back guy who is open-minded and cool to talk about anything.

    7. Fitting into the community is vital to the experience here at TSO. How do you see yourself fitting into our community? I have a hard time finding people I can't get along with and I have no problem adjusting to new people as long as they can make at least a little sense. I don't take myself too serious and I don't take gaming as a live or die must win thing either.

    8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TSO? , I hope to meet some new friends and find a group of people who can make my online gaming experience even more enjoyable.

    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 have had this happen before and what I did was I finished the game and then we delt with it after. I have had cheezers try and dupe me before and I still won so most the time it doesn't effect too much. If I lost than I'd take it like a man-gamer and move on and let the powers that be handle the offender. I'm not going to start smashing windows or throwing chairs threw walls if someone cheats I see it as a way to gameplan against a fast-growing Cheeze nation of gamers.

    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 yet to really check through all the different dynasties yet but I'm probably looking for one that isn't at the highest hardcore level, just yet.
