    TMFL25 We have proven to be one of the best leagues on TSO. After much collaboration, there will be some new rules added to make this league even better. We will be implementing a strike system effective for all members (including myself):

    The system is going into effect immediately.

    TMFL Gameplay Complaints

    Please follow this format when there are game complaints:

    1. Talk to your opponent over the microphone IN GAME.
    2. If you or your opponent doesn’t have a microphone, send them a PM on TSO or Xbox Live.
    3. If the issue cannot be resolved verbally and there is still conflict, FINISH THE GAME and then fill out the complaint form and the Gameplay Complaint Committee will review the complaint with both parties.
    4. If the Gameplay Complaint Committee feel that a strike is in order, the commissioner will get involved for an official review.

    The TMFL Strike Policy

    In an effort to limit disruptive behavior and encourage a positive league experience the TMFL has a Strike Policy in effect. Strikes can be issued by any member of the leadership committee at any time for poor sportsmanship and behavior. Below are some examples of behavior that will lead to strikes:

    1. Gameplay complaints in the Chat Box.
    2. Reviewed gameplay complaints were it is determined a strike is necessary.
    2. Taking more than 3 unexcused SIMs a season (I.E. you're not on vacation or attending to a prior obligation, and the reason the game is a sim is due to negligence on your part.)

    Strike Accumulation Policy

    1 strike = Verbal warning.
    2 strikes = Lose best defensive player and offensive player for a game – Player selection is enforced by the commissioner.
    3 strikes = Banned for 2 games and have to have CPU play your opponent.
    5 strikes = Banned from the TMFL and a PM will go out to TSO Site Leadership explaining why.

    · Strikes re-set after one season.
    · The commissioner also holds the right to remove anyone at anytime regardless of strikes.

    Thanks, I have seen some of the chat box complaining and it has been pretty bad. That is a great call imo. Really unfair to the other player..

    Just turn off the drama, learn to play the game on the mic and talk to whoever your playing..it makes it easier on both people...when you can frame what is being said with the tone and tact it gets said with. I find that i enjoy the game more when talking and getting to know whoever I am playing..win or lose.

    Before complaining, I always try to figure out what happened ...and 99.9% of the time, it was just because the other player called a better game then me, is just better then me & my team, or one of those games where it simply doesn't matter what you do...your going to lose..Tons of the enjoyment of playing video football is the other styles and game plans people bring...just because it beats me doesn't mean its cheap.

    Spot on. Well said Bruce. The purpose of putting this in place wasn't to try to be dicks about what's being said in the CB, it's more of a reminder that this is getting out of control and this is a way we can hope to police it.

    I mean listen at the end of the day we're all here because we love Madden. We love that game and sometimes those competitive juices get going and shit gets said. It's a video game guys. We want to treat each other with respect.

    To add onto this, because I know this scenario will play out; I'm willing to bet 99.9% of the time the chat box is up, there is at least one TMFL member in it. If you see someone bitching, remind them of this and tell them to can it. It just looks plain bad for you and the league if you sit there and bitch.. and bitch... and bitch.
