    TSO,

    Everyone who has been around for at least one launch cycle knows that this place will explode in July. The management team is working in the background to prepare for this rush of traffic, but we need some help. As new members flood the website we will struggle to have enough leagues to place them in. Last year we lost an estimated 2 out of 10 people who signed up because they couldn't find a league in a timely fashion.

    So, what we are looking for is a group of solid, dedicated members who could head up leagues as necessary. Ideally, anyone looking for a second league would look to head up a group of "newbies" and teach them the ropes. We don't expect every one of these leagues to thrive, but we need people who can lead and show people how we do what we do at TSO.

    If you start one of these leagues, after some time you will be able to groom someone to take over for you. That's how The Redshirts got started last year, with RynoAid heading them up, and Pagamer07 took over and in less than a year that league has turned into a Premier-worthy league.

    It is a tough challenge, but I know some of you are up to it. Any takers?

    Shaun

    If nobody else is able to do so, I have experience heading an OD and working with new members to do so. It looks like I will be in 2 ODs for next release anyway, but would be willing to "train" guys down the road and get a league started if it is needed.

    Well now that I'll only be in Hard4Yards and East Coast Brawl with the new premier league rules, I would love to commish another league if you'll let me. Ideally I'd like to do what Brian did with me in East Coast Brawl and hand it over to one of the new guys within a couple seasons.

    Would actually love to do this-- did it last year and I think I did a good job of getting @Timpegoose and @gowazzucougs acquainted to the site. I likely won't have a league once The Legacy goes premiere.. so honestly I'd really prefer this.

    I think @AJ Hart MN may be interested. Not sure if he saw this or not.

    I would like to be considered as well. I co-commish with brave in Trifecta and would like a shot at running my own league as well.

    There is going to be no co-commishing for '12, so hopefully that frees up some guys.

    With the Deuce being my only '12 league, I can commish one.

    Yeah definitely support Twist as a commish. I also agree with Dru regarding Wazzu being an excellent candidate.

    I'd love to commish a league, but all posts must be ran through a pirate translator.

    I would like a non-premier dynasty spot. I've hosted a dynasty for 2 NCAA titles straight and '10s dynasty went from October to May. My '11 dynasty started when the game dropped and is still going. I have ran with 12 members and kept about 7 of the original 12 from the '10 dynasty this whole time. I advanced every 2 days and all 12 members are usually done by then. I rarely sim anyone. Everyone plays sim because I boot the cheesers after a warning. We used to use a forum on EA's website, but EA got too power hungry. We would like a forum again and @TwiSTR18 said you may be willing to let us have a slot. Let me know.
