    How did you hear about Tradition Football:

    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where? Started playing in Leagues during the PS2 leagu
    es in 2004..moved to PC and played JSFL and XFA till 2009 and moved into consoles in 2010.
    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online? Probably longer than most on this site have been born. I owned an original Pong, Intellivision and Atari 2600...30 years.

    3. What type of player would you say you are? Average to slightly above average. I play for fun and stress relief. If it becomes like work, I will retire.

    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 fit right in. I am turning 40 on Wed, doesn't seem to be that much difference. I hate rap music....please keep it to a minimum if you are playing me online.:p

    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns? Yes...zero issues on all the rules.

    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 am a Sales Manager at a car dealership in Cincinnati..I am a homer in rooting for the local teams. I believe in God, my family and this country in that order. I have a beautiful wife and 3 spoiled rotten boys who act like thier father. I have enjoyed playing video games for a majority of my life and do not plan on changing that.

    7. How active do you plan on becoming with the TF community? As active a member as I can be. I like what I have seen so far.

    8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TF? A great experience and some good clean competetive gameplay.

    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? 1) As them to refrain from the behavior 2) If it happens again, finish the game and report it to the Commish in charge.

    10. Have you checked out the different leagues here at TF? Yes.. Have you seen anything that you want to be a part of? NCAA or Madden Leagues both seem to be full right now, I am sure some spots will open up, I can wait.

    Whenever the game become a job. When you are playing online and see constantly repetetive playcalling...the same play over and over again on offense and defense. When you have constant childish bickering in the forums. Whenever the commish boots whoever beats him or won't trade with him. Something I hope to avoid by joining this Organization. That's when it is time to retire.

    You might want to rethink your interest in the Ten Year War. :D

    In all seriousness, I believe he's asking more about your ability to stick with a league.

    The "I play for fun and stress relief and will retire if it becomes like work" comment could raise a flag of you being like other new guys that get into Tradition, sign up for 4 leagues, then quit halfway through the first season of them all.

    Unfortunately this happens way too often especially with people who are more Madden players than NCAA. When Madden "drops" people seem to disappear from online dynasties sometimes.

    I get what Psycho is saying here.

    I guess I missed the entire meaning of the question...I was Co Commish in the XFA from 2003-2010. I have gotten tired of running things and figured I would let the young pups handle that responsibility on top of the 60+ hour work weeks that I have been putting in addition to raising the family. I had a 2nd PC team in JSFL from 2004-2009. I stayed there for a good while, till they quit making the PC. I am just looking for a League to play in, make some good online friends and hang my hat for a while. If you can provide that, I will stay for as long as the Good Lord allows me to stay.

    That answers what I thought he was trying to get at.

    This was exactly what I was getting at. If you are not willing to put effort into a league because it seems like work. We want to know that if you are applying for this community you plan to be apart of it for awhile.

    Things you have mentioned about commish's removing owners for childish is something you will never see on this site.
