    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:
    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:

    If there enough applicants, I *may* create a second league with the people who don't make it into this league.

    Wow, that's a huge tag.

    Checking Internet traffic sites and looking for abnormal spikes as a result of these new flows.

    None of that stuff bothers me...except the blatant misinformation.

    Was hoping to get in here, just got lazy on filling on an application. To be honest, just got home from my destination wedding and honeymoon. Things have been a bit hectic, in a good way.

    Makes you wonder what? I was pretty plain about why those guys were the three chosen to start this process. All are long standing TSO members who embody what we do around here.

    Stragglers? That might be the meanest thing you have ever called me.

    Should've let me beat you - that loss cost me the playoffs.

    Since the existing group has come to a consensus, the fifth member of TMFL for Madden 25 is: The Richuation

    He is a true TSO OG who has had a hand in running leagues in multiple sports. His reputation speaks for itself, which just reaffirms to me this process is the right way to do things.

    The original post has been updated to reflect the current roster. We will start selecting the next member. Stay tuned.
