    How did you hear about Tradition Sports: OOTP 13

    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where? I've played online sim and fantasy leagues such as SimDynasty

    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online? video games 20 years, online 15

    3. What type of player would you say you are? casual, I enjoy the competition, but it is not my life. I am not much on participating in chats for the sake of chatting.

    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? That age group is much younger than me

    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns? Yes. I will be playing OOTP 13, so I am not sure that I will be playing user vs user, but I might have trouble doing that if I am required.

    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. Again, I like to compete in sim based games and enjoy matching my "skills" against others. I appreciate fair play, but I don't like a rudeness, trash talk, smack, or attempts to belittle anyone. For those who think their superiority comes from there success in a computer generated victory, I say get off your computer or video game and go do something in the real world with real people. I come from a time when baseball was played for real, even if it was just the neighborhood. And games were played with boards and dice. When a game was over you went home and resumed your life. I can only devote my free time to any game. To keep me playing, stay true to the principles listed in your general rules and don't expect me to put my life on hold for a game.

    7. Fitting into the community is vital to the experience here at TSO. How do you see yourself fitting into our community? I won't post much, but I will be a participant in game play, otherwise I would not be here. I am quiet and keep to myself, win or lose.

    8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TSO? Game play and competition

    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? I would report league violations to the league commissioner and site violations to the site administrators, with whatever evidence I have. At that point, I would leave it up those people to handle the situation. Ultimately, I would expect the outcome to coincide with your stated rules, otherwise that would nullify those rules. If rule violations are not handled within the scope of your guidelines an multiple occasions, then I would have to question my membership in such an organization.

    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? OOTP 13 with either modern players or fictional players
