    ***************************

    This may seem like a completely long, complicated process, and it might be. Unfortunately in order to protect the core values and strength of our leagues, we must screen applicants. It is much better to screen the immature/cheating/bad eggs out now that it is to have them removed from an already running league.

    He would have had to join prior to this season to secure a spot. We aren't opening up membership to anyone until around the drop of 12. Being that you're in the league you'll know exactly when things are going down to make sure he gets a spot.

    I appreciate the interest Scot but we aren't open for new members currently now that our final season is underway. Its a necessary measure unfortunately - as I mentioned to John, he will have the inside scoop on when we are opening up for business for Madden 12 so he can relay that message to you.

    Supposedly keller has frozen his rosters or something. Seems like a waste to not let him in. Theres only like 8 active guys.

    Its to prevent anyone from joining in 11 just to secure a spot for 12.

    I don't expect to get A spot in 12 for playing partial franchise in 11, you already stated I would not. I just wanted to play some games and get A feel for how things work incase i do get into 12. Anyhow if anyone would like to play some games of 11 before 12 comes out let me know

    Thats obviously an excellent point - if you'd like to play under those terms, you're more than welcome to. Head over to the TMFL forums to acclimate yourself. Sorry I didn't understand your angle to begin with.
