    Gentlemen, we are ready to move into the next phase for the Tradition Futbol Club League (TFCL). At this point, if you would like to apply for a captaincy, please send a PM to Drifterbub, Timpegoose, and MoonBBad. You will need to apply w/ a co-captain. Either the co-captain or the captain will have the ANY responsibility. The captain and co-captain can play any position they choose, however, they will need to keep an ANY in mind while drafting.

    Our suggestion to you is BEFORE you send in your applications you talk with the person you would like to apply with and make sure you are both on the same page with the above. Also, if you have submitted an application prior to this post, it will not be considered. We’re only taking new applications from this point forward.

    Applications need to be submitted before Wednesday, March 13 at 11pm est. After that point the player pool will be locked and we will review who the captains/co-captains are. We are going to go with four teams. Hopefully we can get a few more to join, but at our current number it will be four teams of 9 players per team.

    Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to moving to the draft phase ASAP. Thanks gentlemen and good luck!

    Just curious MoonBBad but why must the captain or co-captain run the any?

    We're actually debating it right now... The thought process was, since you need an ANY, it will force the Captain find his ANY prior to the draft (which is a less popular position). However, the other train of thought is to not do that, and it will force the captain to do more scouting on the front end prior to the draft.

    Maybe we could go with 5-6 players per team in order to get more teams? With the future draft we could try to raise the numbers of players per team. Just an idea, I am ok either way :)

    Teams are set at four for right now. Reason is more players per team, more leeway if other players can't make it since we have the minimum of four rule for a game to count. If this takes off, we'll have more players and can expand later.

    IMO, the one controlling ANY has a better understanding of what the teams needs/lacks (during the progress of the game) as he controls the whole defense and some part of the midfield, therefore it would be easier for the captain to get that role as it could be easier for him to share his thoughts about the teams gameplay.

    I see what you're saying.

    Just feel that if a captain finds out a non captain player is a good any and enjoys playing it his hands shouldn't be tied. Also would allow for more rotation among positions for teams. Just an early thought though.

    I understand, and feel like that is some great insight, BUT, I feel the team should be able to choose that. If they find out later on that a guy is a great any that isn't their captain, he basically couldn't play there even though it might help the team.

    That's a good point too (y) (holy cow, we have more emoticons now! :wideyed:). Good job so far guys! If we only have four teams, maybe we could shorten the application progress? Maybe until Sunday or something? Just based n the excitement that everyone has to get this thing going hehehe. Anyways, don't take me seriously! I am one of those who cant wait for this to start :)

    Agreed, and we appreciate the feedback. We're going to start as soon as we can, but we want to do it right. If we get a good amount of applicants we can announce the captains prior to wed, but we want the pool open that long in case some stragglers decide they want to play so we can have more per team.

    We could have during the few games of the season, some sort of waiver wire or a waiting list (either to be part of a team or start a new one). To add those late guys, afterwards the rest just goes to the draft pool for next season.

    the two captains can also share the "ANY" duty from match to match so I don't see that as a problem

    So is there a specific way we will be drafting? Like everyone gives their OVR rating and such to know what the captain is really getting on his team

    There will be some mocks. It's to the captains best advantage to team up with someone who is familiar with most of the pool (or at least between them).

    Guys congrats we are at 40 now. That means 4 even teams of 10 people per team. We need more captain/co captain applicants. If you're thinking about it and haven't sent a PM to Drifter, Timpe, and myself get it in! The deadline is this Wednesday.

    We're ready to kick this thing off. Are you?!

    Great turn out so far!

    Boys- Jump in the chat box and line up some clubs matches if you haven't played with TSO people lately - we have games going on almost every night.
    If no captions from the TSO team are around start up your own temporary club and get in some games.

    I would much prefer this.

    Granted my opinoin = :doodie:, I don't think I am alone when I say the more teams the merrier-- You should be able to consistently get 4 guys online at least with 6 or 7 seven people.
