    TRADITION FOOTBALL - - QUESTIONNAIRE

    Name: Robb Cooper

    Age: 38 (2/19/1973)

    PSN: coolhandreb39206

    Time Zone: Mountain Standard Time

    General Availability: After 4:00 PM Mountain Standard Time

    Favorite Teams: Ole Miss Rebels; New Orleans Saints; House of Stark

    Introduction to Tradition Football? Heard about this site from one of my best friends - - OMLAWDOG (A Tradition legend or so I hear).

    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues?
    No. I have played online (mostly Madden), but never in a league.

    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long online?
    I started playing video games with when I was very young. I would guess that I got my Atari 2600 in circa 1983. I did not start playing online until probably two years ago (Call of Duty; Madden).

    3. What type of player would you say you are?
    According to the rules for most of the leagues on this website, I am the type of player you are seeking. I cannot stand playing people who nano blitz and run the same gimmick play over and over. I am a true sim player. I played both sides of the ball in high school and understand the finer points of football schemes and plans. Not a cheater.

    4. Feelings regarding difference in age of average Tradition player?
    I am an immature 38. I will fit in well with gamers who are 15, 25 or 35 as long as they play by the rules.

    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any concerns?
    Love the rules. They should be the general rules of gameplay for PSN as a whole. Nothing worse than playing idiots who have one unstoppable play or blitz.

    6. A little about me?
    I work for an oil and gas exploration company in NW Colorado. I completed one of these applications a year or two ago but did not have the time to see it through. I think it was under the name CoolHandReb. I have the time now and am ready to play. My previous app got many kudos. This one is not nearly as detailed. I was unemployed when I made my previous app. I am quite busy now and have opted for a premium membership to show that I am serious.

    I am currently trying to master the Spread offense, but it is not going well. I run a Multi D - - mainly Nickel, Dime and 5-2.

    7. How will I fit into your community?

    Like a glove. I am a gamer and a football junkie (mainly SEC). If my boy OMLAWDOG fits in, so will I.

    8. What do I hope to get out of being a member of Tradition?

    That coveted SEC and National Title the Ole Miss Rebels cannot win in real life.

    9. Situation?
    I continue my game under protest and report it to commissioner if the improper gameplay affects the outcome. You can cheat all day if you like. If it is blatant and constant, then I will shut it down and report you. If you are cagey and cheat “accidentally” to win, I am truly sorry for you. That is too bad. Your character flaw, not mine. I am not a cry-baby, but I will regulate if the situation calls for regulation.

    10. For now - - interested in NCAA 12 PS3 Leaugues. I will be interested in Madden PS3 Leagues when Madden 12 comes out. I have paid for the premium membership at Tradition.

    Troy and I are old law school buds and former roommates. I have not played him in a number of years. It was not good for friendship or house harmony. the boy has skills. and is a master recruiter. I have always accused him of using DoubleDragon type cheat codes during gameplay. I am nowhere near that good, but i can hold my own. Looking forward to getting started.

    There should be an immediate investigation. I will volunteer to lead said investigation. I have never been able to prove it, but he has some sort of edge that is unnatural. Do you test for performance-enhancing drugs in these leagues?

    I have read them all. Picked up my first one in June and had the entire series read six days after the newest one came out.

    ah nice. I just re read the series right before Dance came out. I read the series 5+ years ago, so I needed a refresher.

    I could not put it down. Work suffered. The wife suffered. Still, I read on.
