'True 32' is one of tens of thousands Madden leagues out there but is steadily separating itself from the rest and I'm proud to be a part of this movement. Our staff has been in numerous ones over last 5yrs and can tell you first hand we've participated in everything from the worst to top tier organizations. This one will be a household name in time, trust me.
True 32 has all of your standards... Facebook group page, DaddyLeague, trash talk, funny memes, rigid rules, on time advances and a multi commissioner staff to help with any around the clock issues. What they don't have is over excessive nonsense like GroupMe, TapaTalk or mandatory member call-in shows. Not a knock on those who use them but we've found Facebook usually gets the job done.
Most leagues start up every August around the time new edition comes out but quickly peter out after a month or two due to poor leadership and member participation. This one has been around for a few years and found the perfect balance between seasoned vets and eager newcomers.
Their latest escapade even has me amazed as they put together this YouTube vid featuring key players at start of second season on M16....enjoy!
This story is still in the works and Team G4R is waiting to get full interview with founder Brian James from Compton, CA of this remarkable site soon. It's called Madden Underground and some of you people are already members. I don't want to post any false or misleading facts but judging by pics on Mr. James page it appears he is in the click with NFL Network, NFL Live, EA and a few ex NFL members a win win for all! I believe that's MJD in the pic haha.
It's a game changer guys and I'm proud to bring members of the tri-fecta leagues in the cut... G4R Madden, True32 and Fantasy Madden 281. Already a member of one of these three? Your work is half done haha. Continue to follow us as we bring you the latest contests, rewards and events from this fast growing site. Oh their group page?... Madden Underground check it out and request an invite.
At time of this writing they are hosting an XBOX1 Madden lg with a $20 buy in and a guaranteed $200 payout after winning 4 games, sweet! In fact I reached out to sponsor a member from one of our lgs to pay his entry fee but alas he doesn't have an XBOX 1 smh. All good the problem will be rectified in time as we may put up the money to purchase him one.
So tell a friend or better yet join up and get active! G4R will be working hand in hand with this fast growing company and will have regular updates on their activities, I truly believe this is the next evolution of Madden.
I'm a big fan of The Flash and Arrow on Warner Bros network and judging by the previews, I will be one of Super Girl too. It seems they are loading up on DC characters in preparation for a movie venture down the road. Marvel produced movies Thor, Captain America, Hulk and Iron Man in preparation for The Avengers and it looks like their counterpart DC is taking a less budgeted role by going the TV series route. Still in most cases all of these iconic heroes had to take a stab at winning over the masses on network TV. Producers have been trying to showcase childhood heroes since the '20s and with technology it seems to be getting better with each iteration.
Yes DC has a big budget movie in the works with upcoming Batman vs Superman and it would be nice to see the network stars portrayed in any potential Justice League movie down the road. Truth be told I'm still waiting for more intel on an alleged Wonder Woman movie. I'm a true comic book purist and love any and all movies ported over from the comic series. Ahhh the joy of being a geek in this day and age lol. Anyway here's the purpose of this article.... the ranking of Comic shows on TV, enjoy!
G4R wants to take a moment of silence to honor Frances Shepherd. Most don't know her but she's Clifton Shepherd's mom. He's a writer for G4R and our staff want to send him and his family our deepest sympathies.
As a writer/ blogger I have many sources to draw upon... one being my mother. I can't imagine facing a major challenge w/o her support. Am I a momma's boy? I doubt it but how many ppl ask moms for advice?... countless.
It's a proven fact that sons are close to their mothers and to lose one at any age is a tragedy. No one is truly prepared for their passing. I'm not going to get into the details but funeral arrangements are being prepared and financial support is needed. A 'Go fund Me' account has been set up and any donation amount is appreciated. Link is posted below to donate and I'll have one posted on home page in a few days.
Whether you donate or not doesn't determine if you're a good/ bad person. The fact you are reading this is appreciation enough. He needs a total of $2,850 and currently at $430. I'll be sending a donation shortly.

Another 'awareness/ appreciation' time is upon us and if you're anything like me you are probably somewhat numb to it all. Not the sympathy you would expect from a company? Good at least we have your attention now. I'm not going to give you a guilt trip on why you should support this cause, chances are you've heard about it enough times and may know someone who has it so no need to beat you over the head about it.
I only ask for you to get involved in 'something' at least once a yr and make a donation. Hell even if its only $5. Breast cancer, Parkinson's disease, Leukemia or whatever affliction has touched your family or friends these diseases affect us all. If you're a gamer there's even a foundation where you can donate by playing video games, Extra Life. G4R participated in this event a few yrs ago and raised nearly $1k.
Lets face it we are seeing more and more awareness/ appreciation events almost on a daily basis. Some are traditional and others are plain silly in my opinion. Lets run down a few shall we? Take your child to work day, National secretary's day, 4/20 weed day, National pet day, National wine tasting day, walk to work day, brown-bagging it day, go topless day, bottomless day (yes these are recognized days too ppl), good neighbor day and so on. Get my point yet? In fact anyone with enough followers can organize a 'National Day' of their liking.
All in all I'm just saying take 5mins out of your busy lives during the year and donate something to a cause that interests you. Silly or not at least you can feel good about yourself at the end of the day knowing you made a difference in something you care about. Breast cancer would be nice but if not... all good. Your donation means you're active and have a voice and that my friends speak volumes.
G4R will be featuring a 'donation' button within the week and you can make us your one-stop donation center. Send a donation along with where you want it to go and we'll make sure it gets there. You will be credited along with an email and confirmation pic showing transaction. We're doing this in awareness of Breast Cancer month nothing more, nothing less. If you want to donate to our site that's ok too. Please denote which foundation its going to when making donations, thanks.
