    Glad you made it to the site. Application approved.

    You can view our league openings in the League Opening forum just above this one. There are plenty of spots.

    Tried looking...nobody provides any details of their dynasty. Like I said, looking for Heisman difficulty in a competitive league...would rather the Commish contact me.

    You're right. That isn't how it is supposed to be. I got onto my commissioner team, so hopefully that gets updated.

    You need to get into a league, PM or alert the commish and ask for a spot reasonably (not demanding one). Not everyone is a jerk or a prick when you understand the process of all of this.

    You didn't start of your TSO career "off on the right foot," persay in RRAHx2 madden league which affected your reputation. Now it can be mended but it will take your willingness to change and conform to the ideas and expectations around this place.

    JFace907 is the commish of The Zone basketball league, hopefully he can give you a second chance.

    You don't know the details of the situation with RRAHx2, I clearly asked him if the rosters were still the same for the most part since they were just finishing up first season in the league. He said the roster for the Saints was very much the same and there hadn't been any trades or anything. I joined up only to find that Drew Brees was no longer the QB and that Kurt Warner was the starting QB...now you tell me whether that seems fair or not.

    I pm'd JFace and got the same response as the forum board, he was very short and offered no explanation of anything.

    That is a straight lie. You DID NOT ask me about the Saints roster, until AFTER you saw Brees wasn't on your team. If you had asked beforehand, why would I not have told you? You obviously were gonna find out once you joined, so why would I not say anything? The Saints were the only available team when you applied, so you just took them. There are 2 other owners who have joined my league since your hasty departure, and they will vouch that when THEY ASKED about team rosters I immediately told them Brees had retired. That is why they are still open, today.

    This is all a moot point though. The fact you dropped RS immediately over that, leaves a lot to be said about your "dedication" or "commitment" to a league. Definitely not the rep for a new owner to have.

    LOL, not gonna argue with you...you know what you said and I know what you said. Dedication? What dedication should I show to a league I have never been a part of? I'm a part of 2 leagues on here where I was treated with respect and the commish was honest...could care less what you think of my "rep".

    In case you didn't know, once you join a league you are part of it.

    The fact that you don't consider yourself ever "being a part of the league" just further proves my point.

    You try getting gangbanged by a bunch of nerds mad cause I quit a league after being in for 15 seconds. Apparently 15 seconds is life to these joes.

    Start over, clean slate... Lose the nerd attitude and joe stuff, that attitude isn't going to fly right now. I mean aren't you one also, if you have come here to play some games, we all are lol. First impression is pretty much everything, especially for this site and over the internet. If you want to be a part of a great site and league, clean it up some. Loosen up, there are some good people around here and once you get to know them then cut it up.

    I'm plenty loose, everyone else seems to have a broom up their ass. Tried getting into a 2k league and was met with short answers and rudeness. Tried to get into Madden league and was not told the truth about the roster I was taking on. I'm just here to have fun and play some games, other than the 4th and long commish all I've ran into is stiffs.

    It isn't just me, it seems to be everyone you interact with.

    I'll tell you from experience...when a BUNCH of people have an issue with someone, it's usually the individual.
