    How did you hear about Tradition Sports: BigSmooth

    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where? Madden, NCAA Football, NCAA 2k. OS as while as a Madden League during the PS2 days, I cant for the life of me remember the name, but it was a highly respected one.

    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online? 20 years. Since the day the network adapter was released for PS2

    3. What type of player would you say you are? Sim, run based offense depending on talent. I coach to my talent. Defense is a bind but don't break with cover 2 princables. I make my opponent drive the length of the field while limiting big plays.

    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? None, I fit in that group.

    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns? I have taken a look and agree with them all, very similer to past leagues I have been in. My only questions are, in the video I noticed we should run the way it is designed. The example was a HB Iso play where the HB bounced it to the outside, While I almost never bounce it outside, If the hole is closed and the outside line is open, would it be against the rules to take the outside? Do you allow for user catching? Obvi no rocket catching or other cheese.

    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 live in the Detroit Metro area, but was born in Atlanta. I am a huge sports fan as well as gamer. I enjoy palying online, But the cheese I face nightly drives me nuts. I am stright Sim, I respect the game! I enjoy ODs and online franchise, as well as labing with my friends. GOOOOOOOOOOOOO LIONSSSSSSSSS 9+81=6

    7. Fitting into the community is vital to the experience here at TSO. How do you see yourself fitting into our community? I dont see any issue at all, this is my style of play.

    8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TSO? Meeting some friends, and getting in a couple of leagues.

    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? If it only happened once, that would be fine. If it was a situation where the player didnt follow the rules through out the game, and was abusing the AI with cheese. I would finish the game then report it to the 'Mish.

    10. Have you checked out the different leagues here at TSO? Which leagues (if any) are you interested in? What is your preferred league setup? I have looked, Im not tp picky on teams. I would like to be in a premire league if possible, my buddy is Bigsmooth. We have played together for years.

    Welcome, Awesome application!

    Approved

    To answer, if you see the hole is closed or closing, bounce it outside. We frown on: handoff > straight outside play which creates that sideways running animation.

    User catching is allowed

    Nathan Lowe Hey man looking to fill a new member league PS3 we are working out the details as we speak as far as a format get in now and be part of the discussion. Non premier leagues are more than likely where you will have to start to get a rep around here to get into the premier leagues. Got a few young guys in the league now would like a few 30 somethings to round out the crew
