    To members looking at qualifying for Hard Knocks 12 Edition and 13 Edition,

    I have noticed an uncalled for amount of hostile backlash to simple criticism lately. Right now we have been bringing in new members and really evaluating current members as well, for the future of Hard Knocks. The HK Administration is being extremely particular about the members within the league walls as Hard Knocks and Madden13 are set to take on a new tier of competition. This IS a train you want to be a part of.

    Now, if in the last month or so you have been notified of a gameplay or other issue involving the league, whether it be availability, connection issues, or anything involving your attachment to Hard Knocks, do not take it as a negative statement. It is simply a means of finding the best members for this league and to find the perfect guys to fit the mold of HK moving forward. Constructive criticism is the best way to put it. We are here to help you, not destroy you.

    Recently, situations have come up where the reactions from the party being CONSTRUCTIVELY criticized have taken the action personally, and took it to a level it had no need to get to. Name calling, back handed comments, and other bone head statements will not help you solidify a spot in HK with Madden13. If you want to explain your reasoning for the event in question, that is fine. We like it when guys want to talk gameplay and if you have an explanation that makes sense, we can reevaluate the rules in place to make Hard Knocks even better. -- However, if you feel the need to turn the fire on and are unable to adjust to the best interest of Hard Knocks, you should reevaluate your approach. --

    Again, we are here to help you guys and help put Hard Knocks on an entire new tier of gaming, helping drive TSO to the front of this realm.

    This message is not directed at any one individual. You know who you are and this is just a means of protecting and preventing this from happening again. Please take these comments seriously and if you feel an ounce of anger brewing, PM me directly and we can discuss this...like grown men. Thank You.

    As you all know we had a situation last night, that wasn't pretty. It has been taken care of. Going forward we want to keep improving Hard Knocks, with as little drama as possible. There will be times that gameplay issues arise, it happens and its inevitable. I think Cimmy says it best when he says this "Again, we are here to help you guys and help put Hard Knocks on an entire new tier of gaming, helping drive TSO to the front of this realm."

    We want to not only grow the league, but grow the site too. I appreciate that Cimmy24 took the initiative and made this post. We are not out to get anyone, we just want a fun experience for all parties involved.
