    How did you hear about Tradition Football: I saw it on the operation sports forums

    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where?

    I have played in many online simulation leagues but never any head to head leagues. This would be my first NCAA 11 online dynasty with people whom I don't know. Have been playing an online dynasty with a buddy of mine for several weeks now.

    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online?

    Been playing video games for a long time. 15 years probably. Have only really started playing online the last 5 or so. Not a very good players but enjoy the challenge and meeting new people with similar interests.

    3. What type of player would you say you are?

    I would say that I'm an intermediate player. Better than beginner but certainly not an expert.

    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 should fit right in with everyone. I'm here to have fun. I realize that I won't win every game and I don't care about that. I just want to play against some new people and hopefully figure some things out that I didn't already know.

    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns?

    I think the rules and guidelines are fine. I have no problem with them.

    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.

    29 years old, married with three kids. I work hard and play hard. Like to come home and log in to xbox live after the kids go to bed and have a little fun. I love all sports of any kind and will watch anything that is on the television. I really get in to the World Cup and love the Olympics. Pretty much an easy going guy that loves a good sports debate.

    7. How active do you plan on becoming with the TF community?

    Very active. I love engaging in good conversation and it gives me something to do during down time at work.

    8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TF?

    Meet some new people and get in to a good league that is active and fun.

    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?

    Probably mention it to my opponent. If his response is less than favorable I would simply finish out the game and then report the perceived rules violation to the league commissioner.

    10. Have you checked out the different leagues here at TF? Have you seen anything that you want to be a part of?

    I haven't checked out all the leagues but after reading the rules and the membership process I knew this was a place that was serious and dedicated to what they are doing. I'm just looking for some fun. I am going to check out the leagues that have current openings and hopefully one of t hem will fit with the style of game I'm looking to play and I can be of some value to them moving forward.

    All depends on the style of league. I am more interested in playing games on the NCAA engine. I wouldn't mind possibly a simulation madden league possibly.

    Checkout the TMFL - very involved. Salary cap simulation, free agency, the works.

    you should contact @bl0ndereadhead about an opening in the East Coast Brawl xbox 360 ncaa league. I think you would be a good fit. Most of us are in the same age range...good dudes in there.
