    Name: Brett (or el duderino, if you're not into the whole brevity thing)
    Age: 37
    Gamertag/PSN (please state whether its PS or XBOX): PSN - Gigabrett
    AIM/YIM/Skype/ICQ:
    Time Zone: Eastern
    General Availability for User vs User games: Evenings, after kids go to bed (9ish) to the wee hours is necessary, but I usually like to wrap it up by midnight.
    Favorite Teams: Buckeyes, Browns, Tribe, Cavs - I'm a hometown guy
    How did you hear about Tradition Football: I've seen it mentioned several places - OS, NCAA Strategies, etc.

    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where? Yes. I have run a few. Been playing online dynasties since '09 or so.

    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online? Playing since the days of Intellivision (waaay back) and online since '09 (earlier for shooters and such)

    3. What type of player would you say you are? Sim junkie. Playing a good game is more important than winning. No gimmicks. No cheese.

    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? Sounds about right. I like a little older crowd.

    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns? I have read them. I have no questions.

    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'm and insanely busy guy who wants to play in one league and do it well. I don't have the time to do more, but I can commit to one. I'm your typical dad (have a daughter, 4 and a son, 2) who likes to get in as much football as possible on the weekends and evenings. I'm just a regular dude, hence the name.

    7. Fitting into the community is vital to the experience here at TSO. How do you see yourself fitting into our community? Football guys competing for fun = my kind of place. I think we share the same values, and I'll do my best to make things fun for everyone I play with, not just for myself. I think that's pretty much the nature of the place, right?

    8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TSO? Some competition, a chance to geek it up with like-minded geeks, and a place to talk football. Really all I need.

    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? Approach the player politely in game, and if it can't be resolved, finish the game and bring the commish into the conversation. Keep things polite and respectful at all times. No crying.

    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 a spot waiting in Sim-Nation, so I think I'm set.

    Yep. Just need privileges so I can post in the forums. Then I'll be a menace like I was before. Just needed a fresh start due to the new job and all. It's all sorta complicated, but I'll explain.
