    I would suggest reading or at least skimming the rules first before seeking a membership... I also dont see how giving your first name is a big deal.

    Your name isn't that big of a deal. You have to read the rules and agree to them. That's non-negotiable.

    Are you replying from your phone?

    I looked through all the rules of Madden and General and NO WHERE DOES IT STATE you must give your name or any part of your name in the sign up sheet, if i missed it please let me know but you dont have a rule for it. so it thats what your mad about make a rule for it until then i dont see anywhere in the rules where i need to give my any part of my real name.

    At this point, it is more your attitude and combative nature that has you denied. It says it in the application that we ask your name. But you're right, the name in of itself isn't that big of a deal. But we like to promote community and think of us as a big group of online friends playing games together.

    i did agree to the rules it said did i have any questions on the rules and i said no. even though the defense rules of mixing up doesnt make sense. in real life if a certain defense is working the coach isn't going to be like oh man we have to mix it up to make it fair, or they can't stop the blitz but we should ease up and not blitz anymore to make it fair, ask Bill Bellick about running up the score, ask Saints about Blitz, ask Denny Green who to Crown. if it works why can't you keep doing it if it shuts them down. im not saying cheese plays im just saying why cant i play a Defense like tampa 2 if someone cant figure out how to beat it.

    also for the Main wideouts, sometimes the 3rd, 4th and 5th guys are gonna have targets especially if they blanket the teams 1 or 2. Also there are running backs with 30-50 catches a season and up to 300-600 yards so why can i throw to my back if hes open. dont get me wrong ill try to get my main guy catches but if hes cover im not gonna throw it there and get INT's

    You should probably go somewhere else. The type of experience we offer here isn't consistent with the one you are looking for. Sorry but it's for the best.

    How can you agree to something you said you haven't read?

    The rules are there for a reason. Mixing it up is there so that people don't take advantage of an AI issue and run the same blitz effectively every play. Also keeps people from doing the same formation shifts, walking safeties up every play, etc. It's not intended to keep you from running your base defense all the time. Also, this isn't real life. There are things in real football that do not translate to the game. The rules are intended to eliminate gray area.

    The wideout rule is because you can't have your #1 corner shadow the guy that's beating you. Additionally, in previous years of the game, people took advantage of slot WRs, HBs and TEs. HBs were notoriously abused in '09 and '10.

    The rules are revisited after every game release. I feel like the '13 lineup has eliminated the need for some of these rules.

    you guys claim to be mature but its obvious from posts from mods your no different from a 12yr old leauge. As for your Rules that are really retarded and your not playing real football its pretty much saying you suck because if you can't stop things then why play online its like adverstising to the rest of online community that you will never be on thier level. I've played in madden tourneys and they dont have stupid rules like this place and didnt have old people who think thier good at madden either

    It's obvious, we deny maybe 1 in 20 applications... you are not a fit here based on the interaction already. Accept that and find another place to play ball.

    Yep, we are all terrible and obviously not good enough to compete. Hope you find an awesome league somewhere else were everyone isn't "old" and "sucks".

    Peace.
