    I am pleased to announce that RS is retaining much of our core group of owners from M13. Unforunately, not all could stay for another cycle, so we have added a few new guys who are sure to be great additions to the league. I want us all to welcome them to the league, and give them the spotlight for a moment.

    To the vet guys of RS, please take the time to help the new guys with any issues or questions they have, and be sure to show them why RS is a great league!

    If you are tagged below please introduce yourself and tell us a little about you. It doesn't have to ba an essay, just a quick history of your video game skills, TSO history, football knowledge. What's your favorite team, age, family, etc. Thanks in advance everyone!

    Nice to be here guys, should be really fun.

    Name: Josh
    Age: 18 (young'n)
    Location: Edmonton, Alberta, canada
    Favourite Team: Philly Eagles
    TSO History: Did NHL eashl clubs with your guys a few years ago, came back this year for NCAA 14 and having a blast.
    Football Knowledge: Played DB for years and years, until a plethora of concussions ended football for me. Now I play baseball and an a semi-pro armchair QB/coach :p
    Some other things: Going to university to become a macho nurse ;) So please be a tad mindful of the fact that I am taking heavy classes. Although I don't see why I couldn't squeeze in a game per advance schedule. I'm also a big CFL fan, so I may need to adapt to fancy NFL quirks like having 4 downs or only 11 players ;) Also, not having a 20 yard endzone may shrink my playbook a bit, but I'll adapt. Haha, nah, just joking. But I am an avid follower of football from both sides of the border.

    Favorite Teams: Cleveland Browns. Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Cavaliers, and The Ohio State Buckeyes!
    TSO History: None so far
    Interests: Sports and outdoors. I also love to fish and hunt when I have some free time.

    Currently serving in the Ohio Air National Guard and I absolutely love it! Sometimes it gives me problems with my personal schedule but it's worth every second. I'm currently a senior at Ohio University majoring in Applied Management. I only have 1 semester left, but may end up going back for my 4th degree.

    Also want to say thanks to all of you guys for accepting me in this league. Feel free to come to me if you need anything!!

    THE BEST OF LUCK TO ALL OF YOU!!

    Favourite Team: St. Louis Rams!! Mizzou!!
    TSO History: I was in RS for a good chunk of Madden 13. But at the end of January, I was in my last semester of grad school at Mizzou. I needed to focus on that so, unfortunately, I had to drop out for the rest of the release. I also was in another Madden league prior to RS.
    Football Knowledge: I never played football, but I have been watching NFL and college football for most my life. I won my fantasy football league last year too (y)

    Otherwise, I am an accountant and just started working Full-Time this week. I also got married earlier this summer.

    Looking forward to being a part of Rookie Symposium again! Can't wait for the release!

    Location: Ottawa, Ontario
    Favorite Teams: Denver Broncos(Went to a game in Mile High two years ago), Boise St Broncos, Ottawa Senators
    TSO History: The past two years I've been in 4th Horseman, I was also in FIFA Clubs this year but I'm sure my team will tell you that I should stay far away from that this year:).
    Football Knowledge: Was a DB and returned punts while I was playing. I've been a Broncos fan for as long as I can remember, even through the Brian Griese years and who can forget Danny Kanell and Steve Beuerlein. I love reading PFF(pro football focus) and always eager to learn more about football.

    I played basketball in high school and still do recreationally, and no I can't dunk a basketball:(. At the moment I'm just working so playing my game in time shouldn't be a problem.

    Age: 19
    Location: Maryland
    Favourite Team: Washington Redskins
    TSO History: Joined up a few years back to play in an NCAA Dynasty, coming from OS. I started up with the typical all new members league but that died and i made my way to T3 when it was premier. My xbox stopped reading discs and i was forced to take a 4 month break until i could afford another one after 5 or so seasons with T3. Ever since last summer i've been an active member on the boards, and have been a part of many leagues. Currently, I have been a member of The Dugout for about 7 months, am commissioner of Freshmen Phenoms, and my 3rd and final league is this one.
    Football Knowledge: I've been in love with football since i was 4, but times were hard being a Redskins fan. I played safety and WR in high school because i was never fast enough to play CB. Baseball was my main sport though.
    Some other things: I go to a local community college for now, and i run 2 businesses of home improvement and IT solutions. I'll be graduating with a degree in cyber security soon enough. My family is from Syracuse, NY so i have a strange team preference for different sports. I root for the Yankees, Redskins, Caps, Wizards, Knicks, and all Syracuse sports.
