    Age ain't nothin' but a number.

    Shouldn't have any problems. I try to be reasonable but usually my opinion turns out to be the truth.

    Who is your brother? And could you spend a bit more time and elaborate on some of your answers. We are using this app to find out if you will be a fit to our community, not just an exercise to see if you can copy and paste and respond with a couples words...

    Here you go. As far as who is my brother - I don't know his handle on TSO. He shot me a text saying that I needed to come here to participate in a online Dynasty done right and I will take his word for it. He plays PS3, I play Xbox360.

    My only request would be to play in a league that plays mostly after 10:00pm EST due to my work schedule. That and to be in a somewhat forgiving league as I am new to the online Dynasty (though I'm a NCAA vet) and I'm sure there is a learning curve.

    I like most of the answers, but this one gives me a bit of pause...

    When you say exploit, I just want to clarify that it is a scary word to 'sim' minded gamers. I think you mean, take advantage of your opponents playstyles, but just make sure it isnt taking advantage of the game code...
    Also, I think some commissioners frown upon playing the FS down in the box all the time. I would check dynasty rules and talk with a commish about that before trying to select a league.

    With that said, I approve the app, just keep in mind the comments. There is also a video of encouraged and discouraged playstyles on here for the newer guys.

    I was referred to this league specifically because of the emphasis on simulation. If I'm taking advantage of the code and not the opponents weaknesses then what of what use is actually playing the game? I don't exploit gamecode glitches - I exploit my opponents user glitches!

    As far as FS in the box, I would compare my style to what Troy Polamalu does in real life. Play about 3 yards behind the LB's instead of 5 yards and look for run-first and take away the flat. I don't think that would be a violation of any rules as I would only blitz when the play is called. If it were a problem then I could certainly change my style.
