TSO Starting tomorrow evening, I will be announcing the members of the TMFL for Madden 25. The selection criteria is simple. The people already chosen will choose the next member, myself included. This will be done via a poll in a forum that only the chosen have access to. In the event of a tie, I will break the tie, but I will abstain from voting otherwise. Each poll will go up and close 24 hours later. The announcements will be made per the embedded schedule. Why am I doing it this way? A few reasons: It helps eliminate *my* bias. The league members are choosing their peers. If they do a poor job, it is their fault and they will be held accountable as a group. The real criteria last year was supposed to be, "get a group that wants to play together". There is no better way than letting the group choose who they want to play with. The membership will dictate what is important to the group. Careful selection means smart people deciding the continued selections. The people I've chosen to be in TMFL 25 so far are: Shaun Mason (that's me) OMlawdog I Peench MoonBBad The Richuation - added 5.24 Randiesel75 - added 5.26 Masler - added 5.28 biggcoug65 - added 5.30 Danthraxxx - added 6.1 Bucs - added 6.5 pittrocks43 - added 6.5 dakota7 - added 6.7 antcap24 - added 6.9 Baron - added 6.11 RynoAid - added 6.13 sawemoff - added 6.16 RRAHx2 - added 6.19 Jmustang1968 - added 6.21 Sgt Jowers - added 6.24 Philstyle3005 - added 6.26 fuzzyl0gic - added 6.27 Boom29 - added 6.29 NeuroticTruth - added 6.29 bawvu97 - added 6.29 BRUCE80 - added 6.29 HAL9100 - added 6.29 broth262 - added 7.9 Gravity - added 7.9 bringbackjimmy - added 7.11 CHUNKNESS - added 7.13 Hova - added 7.15 Cole Copeland - added 7.17 The initial three individuals embody the people *I* want to play with. Right now, they represent the power to get into the TMFL. Feel free to lobby. -- Per the schedule above, once all 32 members are chosen, I will take a weekend to figure out teams, and then I will begin announcing those as well, running up to the week Madden 25 is released. If you have questions, ask here. I will also announce each selection here. Finally, if you haven't applied to be in the league and would like to, you can do it here: http://forums.traditionsportsonline.com/threads/tmfl-25-so-you-want-to-be-part-of-the-circus.98099 If there enough applicants, I *may* create a second league with the people who don't make it into this league.
