5. In three or more sentences, tell us a little about yourself. How old are you, what do you do, where are you from, why would you be a good fit here, etc.
I am a guy that lives about 15 minutes away from downtown Detroit and currently in my early 20's. Being a guy who grew up watching football; I love the history (Mostly 1990's Detroit Lions) of football and how schemes are made like how the Run and Shoot offense evolved from Glen Ellison's version to June Jones' style (from the shotgun), would love to find someway to implement my own version that can be just as successful as their's here. One thing that stands out about me is that I am very competitive while being respectable and hopefully I can make as many long-lasting friends here as I have in other football sim games that I have played.
6. This site can be as time consuming as you want it to be. Weekly duties can be completed in 30 minutes or less, however interacting with your fellow players throughout the week makes it more enjoyable for most people. Approximately, how much free time do you have during a typical week?
Even with a full-time call center job and currently going to school for information technology, I am able to spend 5-10 hours in a week. I can always try to come up with my depth chart with gameplan during my breaks at work if I am really crunching for time.
7. Losing games is an inevitable reality on this site, especially when accepting newer teams. Do you believe you can handle losing? Disappointment is expected, however we have had issues with people freaking out, and even leaving the site because of losing.
Taking a quote from a shamanistic mandrill... "The past can hurt, but the way I see it you can either run from it or learn from it". I always try to turn games that I have lost into some sort of learning experience for a better outcome the next game.
8. How did you find out about this site? If recommended by a friend, please post his/her username.
I was recommended by a friend, but he has not told me his username at the time of the post; I am also unsure if he is still active. Although I could have started back in May when I first heard about this site and made this account... I just found out about the coaching course and how to apply... live and learn.
