    • Gamer Tag: Raven is Wicked
    • Have you been a member of Rookie Symposium before, if so, when: no
    • What is your previous online league experience: 3 leagues last year and two the year before that, all SIM
    • In addition to this league, how many more Madden leagues will you participate in: One
    • If accepted, what activity level will you be able to provide the league:
      • HIGH Level (Checking forums daily, always available via Skype or text, provides league content in addition to the minimum required, very vocal in league discussions, prompt in scheduling league games, NO monitoring required) The website is always up on my computer or phone and I'm always checking in.
    • Provide your typical availability schedule: Varies, some days from 1 pm CT and after, other days 8 pm CT and after. Work schedule is known 3 weeks in advance so scheduling games isn't difficult.
    • If accepted, how long do you intend to remain a member of Rookie Symposium: As long as possible.
    • Describe your definition of "sim" football, and how that fits your style of play: My definition of SIM football is basically what we watch on Sundays. Playing smart, but competitive without exploiting the game. It fits my style because I use my knowledge of the game to gameplan and adjust mid game.
    • List your favorite NFL team, and why: Baltimore Ravens. Growing up I watched the Cowboys with my dad, then when I was about 5 years old he used the phrase "gotta take the Browns to the Superbowl" and as a kid I thought it was hilarious, so I fell in love with them. I am originally from MD so when they moved to Baltimore it was perfect. Plus I loved Edgar Allen Poe, and for some reason the raven is my favorite creature.

    • List your greatest NFL moment, what about your greatest Madden Moment: My favorite NFL moment was watching the Ravens bring a championship back to MD in 2001. It meant the world to everyone I knew, including myself. My greatest Madden moment was back in 2008 during a local tournament in York, PA. It was a small tournament, nothing special, but had $50 Wal-Mart gift card up for grabs. I made it to the finals, but to get there I played a guy who was using the Steelers and I had the Ravens. Down by 5 points, 26-21 I forced him to punt from his 45 yard line. He kicked a perfect coffin corner and planted the ball about 2.5 yards out of the endzone. I ran a couple plays but couldn't do anything and was facing 3rd and 8. I was getting pressure from my right side and saw a small lane open for about 5 yards and as I started to scramble I noticed I had Derrick Mason deep with only one man in coverage. I tossed a bomb and pulled it down, broke a tackle and got the TD. I made the two point conversion, making it a 3 point game. There was 1:10 left and he managed to drive down to the 36 with ten seconds left. He went for the field goal but one of my corners came off the edge as the CPU and blocked the kick. I won 29-26. Biggest thriller of my life in Madden.
    • On a scale of 1 to 5, what level of Madden player are you, skill-wise: I would say I'm 3.5-4. I could be better, I get a little anxious and make stupid decisions, and sometimes I'm too inconsistent.

    • Describe your definition of "sim" football, and how that fits your style of play: Sim football to me is about recreating what football is all about. Coming up with a gameplan that stays in the confines of what schemes I see in the NFL. I usually don't like playing random people online because more than the average seem to have "gimmicks", AI manipulations or just flat out don't really know the game of football.
    • List your favorite NFL team, and why: Oakland Raiders...Silver n Black nuff said :)
    • List your greatest NFL moment, what about your greatest Madden Moment: My greatest madden moment would is the win streak I put together that spanned a couple of Maddens Snake Eyez can attest to it as he received a good amount of those losses.
    • On a scale of 1 to 5, what level of Madden player are you, skill-wise: I didn't play last years version much. So right now I'm a 3 but I'm a quick study and my ability to read and recognize plays/tendencies allows me to make in game adjustments that helps me compete.

    RRAHx2 Just want to let you know that I'm trying to find a home for my Madden. After getting madden I realized I needed to be in a league to enjoy the game to its fullest. I was very active when I was in RS until I went on vacation and ultimately had to trade in my Madden early because I got an early copy of NCAA. I also lost my TSO password but just now found it so that's why I haven't been able to respond to any PMs even though I applied for league. Give me Ny team any situation and Ill model them how I like it.

    • What is your previous online league experience: I played an online dynasty on the previous Madden and was very pleased with it. I had not played it through TSO before because I just learned about it recently.
    • Have you read the League Rules? If so, do you understand and agree to them: Yes
    • Have you been a member of Rookie Symposium before, if so, when: No
    • In addition to this league, how many more Madden leagues will you participate in: None, I would rather stay committed to one league.
    • If accepted, what activity level will you be able to CONSISTENTLY provide the league: High
      • HIGH Level (Checking forums daily, always available via Skype or text, provides league content in addition to the minimum required, very vocal in league discussions, prompt in scheduling league games, NO monitoring required)
      • MODERATE Level (Checking forums very 2-3 days, sporadically available through other forms of communication, contributes only the minimum required content, schedules league games within the allotted time but never early, SOME monitoring required)
      • LOW Level (Checking forums 1 or 2 times weekly, can only be reached through forums and not consistently, rarely contributes required content, regularly is late scheduling league games, MUCH monitoring required)
    • Provide your typical availability schedule: Weekdays I have a preference of evenings and on Weekends I am very flexible, so anytime is good on the weekends.
    • If accepted, how long do you intend to remain a member of Rookie Symposium: As long as this dynasty is going on. This will have my full commitment
    • Describe your definition of "sim" football, and how that fits your style of play: My definition of "sim" football consists of playing the game as realistic as possible and playing the game like you would see on television. For instance, not going for it on 4th down if I am in an early lead, only when necessary in late game situations if I am trailing.
    • List your favorite NFL team, and why: San Diego Chargers because I grew up watching LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates. I believe that they have a decent team but still could use key additions in certain spots such as RB and WR. Maybe a little more improvement on the defensive side too. But, they are my favorite team because I grew up watching them and I became a fan early.
    • List your greatest NFL moment, what about your greatest Madden Moment: My greatest NFL moment I have ever witnessed was actually last night on September 5, 2013 between the Baltimore Ravens and the Denver Broncos. In all of my years watching football, I witnessed the best single game by a QB. Peyton Manning was unstoppable and threw for 7 touchdowns and did not turn the ball over. He scorched the Ravens defense and the Ravens did not look like a Super Bowl contender after last night's game. My favorite madden moment was back on Madden 2008 when I was down by 6 against one of my childhood friends and it was 4th and long with 10 seconds left and i did not have any timeouts. I had threw the ball on my friend deep and my guy beat his and ended the game on a hail mary pass as time expired.
    • On a scale of 1 to 5, what level of Madden player are you, skill-wise: I would say that I am a 4. I have a decent running game along with the ability to make key passes when needed. On the defensive side, the biggest problem I have is that playing the secondary is a little weak for me.
