This is a great idea, I'll get to this when I have some time, but an idea I have is how they came to know football and what makes them a fan of the sport and their team... Favorite players, coaches, etc.

I had an idea for the same concept for us all to get to know each other more in the Titans forum, so I'll start off the profiles and maybe add some questions! :D

Name: Thomas Winstead

CC.SD 04-30-2010 03:16 PM

I'm CCSD and I support pancakes over waffles.



I'm a grad student at SC/working PR professional, originally from SD, and root for the Chargers, Trojans, Lakers, Ducks, and when I can, Aztecs.

In my spare time I enjoy walks on the beach, boxing (taking up Judo soon too), obsessively reading about and talking football, getting hammered, playing Xbox, and beating off.

Once I won Dr. Pepper's '1 in 6 Wins' contest 8 times in a row which is statistically impossible. But they were all from the same vending machine which must have gotten a special shipment. I leave that part out usually.

Name: Ben
Age: 24 (Old here I think!)
Hometown: Gloucester, England
Favorite Sports Team(s): Liverpool FC, Leicester Tigers, Indianapolis Colts
School/Occupation: Graduate Training Scheme
Life Story: I'll fill this out fully at one point in the future, but as a kid growing up in the mean streets of Leicester, England, I had pretty much always been into football (soccer), playing for 10 years before going to University. Whilst at University of Warwick to study Mathematics (should I say Math for the vast majority of the audience here?? :P) I joined the Warwick Wolves American Football Team, playing Left Tackle in my rookie season and not giving up a sack, started to play Defensive End too before tearing up my knee, keeping me out of action for a year. At this time I started looking at the NFL Draft and Google led me to this wonderful site and all of the forum inhabitants I learn from here... enjoy chatting to some of the folks on here on football (have educating me massively on college football and the NFL) and other topics too such as MMA, soccer etc... long may it continue!
How you found the site: Google, see above!

Close D, close. All the way to the right. Wearing the pink lei. I thought for sure you'd get that. I do love grass skirts.

I'm Jimmy. I'm 19. I'm an enigma, and I choose to embrace it and keep it that way. Something notable about me is that I have a hot girlfriend that is out of my league.

Name: (Fotios) Philip Lolis
Age: 15
Hometown: Miami, FL
Teams: New York Giants, New York Yankees, New York Knicks, New York Rangers, Manchester United.
How I found this site?: Probably searching up mock drafts in google.
Life story: Originally from New York City, I lived there until I was 12 and then moved down here to Florida. My father is Greek which is where Fotios comes from and my mother is Russian. I love football and I am currently the ILB on my school's varsity team :) . I am young but I love to learn about the game, and I pride myself on being a student of the game; I hope to maybe even benefit from this on the field or further in life as a scout/analyst/journalist etc. I have been called the Josh Freeman of guidos, however I hope that growing out my hair has changed that, probably not.


The Unseen 04-30-2010 05:51 PM

Name: Andrew
Age: 18
Hometown: well I live in Saint Augustine, FL
Favorite Sports Team(s): Jacksonville Jaguars, Florida Marlins, University of Florida Gators
School/Occupation: just finished freshman year at the University of Florida
Life Story: I'll skip to the present. I like (watching) football, philosophy, linguistics, making up languages (known as conlanging...yeahhh), music, (watching) baseball, diet soda, and fapping. I'm a nerd and a loner but I roll with the punches.

How you found the site: Don't remember...probably when I was trying to find out more about the draft. I got hooked to the site for reasons outside of the draft, like the Off Topic forum, the NFL forum, and IRC. I'm still a draft dunce but that's because I don't pay as much attention to the things you have to know. I use this site to educate myself.

My life is not dull to say the least.

Mr. Goosemahn 04-30-2010 06:12 PM

Name: Manuel Gutierrez

Age: 19

Hometown: Monterrey, Mexico

Favorite Sports Team(s): Steelers, Lakers, Real Madrid, Tigres, and I don't really follow baseball that much, but my grandfather is a Yankees fan and I guess I'm one too.

School/Occupation: Student

Life Story: Born in Monterrey and lived there all my life. Wasn't really into football that much until I turned 15. I became a Steelers fan because all my friends had a bet going on about who'd win the Superbowl, and I picked Pittsburgh. I watched two or three games at the end of the season, and I don't know why, I just liked them. They won all those games, sneaked into the playoffs, and beat the Seahawks in the Superbowl. Been an avid fan since then. Xbox live tag is Taquashaniqua (bad story...), and that's it.

How you found the site: Lurked for a couple months, joined Nov. 2007 and didn't post regularly until Pittsburgh drafted Rashard Mendenhall. I guess I was looking for Mock Drafts and info and stumbled upon the NFLDC community. Never left, and I don't plan to do so anytime soon.
