Hey all. Im working on my yearly TFO Rom and last season I started to give away the prize of placing text on the Tecmo Blimp that appears at halftime. So since I have my notes and couldn't find this on the boards I wanted to post it for others... and so I won't lose it next season when I do this all again
So I like to think of the Tecmo Blimp as having 2 Lines of 10 "Spots". These spots are filled in with 8x8 pixel images. There are 16 available characters to use in these spots (not counting spaces). You would need to go in and EDIT these with your own images/letters/characters to appear on the blimp and one could have MORE spots by doing some edits on their own but I stick with the 16 as I haven't had an issue with it.
I know there is more "real estate" on the blimp that could be used but since it shares a pallet with the background clouds I just stick with the two 10 character lines.
CHARACTER GRAPHIC SPOTS (17 total counting Space/Blank)
03 = Space/Blank (DO NOT OVERWRITE)
0B = Left Part of Helmet Icon
0F = Right Part of Helmet Icon
1D = E (blue)
37 = C (blue)
39 = T (blue)
3D = M (blue)
3E = O (blue)
3F = S (pink)
41 = U (pink)
42 = P (pink)
43 = E (pink)
44 = R (pink)
45 = B (pink)
46 = O (pink)
47 = W (pink)
48 = L (pink)
SPOTS AVAILABLE ON THE BLIMP (2 Lines of 10)

PALLET LOCATION (3 colors)
WHITE: 0x1a02f (DO NOT CHANGE)
[Recommended not to mess with the white as the rest of the blimp's white spots share the same pallet as the clouds in the background]

Yes, I am playing Madden--no hate, but Tecmo Super Bowl just seems so easy by comparison, as much as I love the game (heck, I led the Vikings and Eagles to Super Bowl victories in the 1978 and 1979 roms from QBVikings).
So, any tips that I should know playing the game? I'm a new player at Madden, and I promise I'm not going to ditch Tecmo. Consider this a new thing for me. Thanks.
What up nfl junkies. I'm putting together a NFL team by team rosters/depth charts on excel. I play a lot of fantasy sports but i want to know more about offensive lineman and defensive players. Each chart has team's Coaches ( head coach, oc, dc, playcaller, special teams) and they're style of play or preferred scheme ( 3/4, 4/3, Cover 2 Ex.). This way i make sure each team has the proper personnel to run its desired scheme. It has each team's 2015 Team Stats ( Pts/game, Pts/game Given Up, Rushing, Receiving, Red Zone Stats, Yards P/ Drive Stats, Total Plays Ran. I'm not an expert or anything so i went by ProFootballFocus.com ratings in 2015 for player grades (that should give us an idea of each player's particular skill sets). I have PFF Ranks by position on the chart. For example I also put down each players Peripheral stats (from there combine as a rookie) to there particular position ( Ht, Wt, Vertical Jump, 40 time, broad Jump, arm length, hand length, explosion number for( rookie front 7 players ) (, production ratio (for rookie front 7 players) etc, bench press reps at 225 if that's standard combine test weight???) ). I also have Production Ratio's, and Explosion ratio for Rookies. Drop ratio is something i'm going to add into later ( Total targets/Drops) .

*****team BliTZ Percentages??? I remember Ari Blitzed a lot last year, i expect dallas to blitz more due to depth issues
***** team PlayAction Percentages ....The old way of you got to run early set up the run to set up the pass or playaction is a Myth. Running the ball in 4th qtr is more valuable to winning football games than early in the game. http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stat-analysis/2016/2015-play-action-offense

*** Drop ratio (Total Targets/Total Drops)...bELOW...Basically ted Ginn Jr., Evans, and A. Cooper is only wr's hands i dont trust
*** Teams that are Pro Analytic or Not??? CLeveland Pro Analytic, KC Pro-Analytic, Tb head coach more of trust his eyes thru film study type of coach,
*** Each Team's KR/PR Good DST/returner stacks for Dfs La rams DST/tavon austion (PR 2015 34-268-1td), Sea Dst/Tyler Lockett (PR '15 40-379-1td), KC dst /Tyreke Hill (R), Mia Dst/Jarvis landry (356 yds 1td PR 2015), car/tedd Ginn jr 2015 (27-277-0) , Nyg/D.Harris (341yds 1td 2015), Pitt Dst A.Brown PR (22-212 1td 2015)...SD (terrible D but PR T. Benjamin 28-324-1)
*** teams that prefer using 1 RB as the main ball carrier: Ari,Pit
. I only have the player grades and players Ht, Wt, and position and some Peripheral stats ( Vertical Jump, 40 times). I wish teams re-tested there players each year. If you want chart your team's (I made a base chart to save you time) projected starters go ahead post it in excel. I have access to PFF player rankings, and rotowire if you need help with player ratings. Please correct any mistakes i made. If you have a opinion of team's outlook post about it.
******* These rosters were updated to about 8-14 Teams add and cut players so each chart isn't 100% accurate. *******

This is my 1st stab at this.

Okay, so the idea is pretty much simple. Take two teams--one NFC and one AFC--and come up with the craziest possible conspiracy theories out there in order to back up how Super Bowl LI is gonna be rigged. They don't have to follow any sort of practicality nor have any grounding in reality; just do a ton of research in a bunch of convoluted trivial nonsense that is to directly point towards these two teams winning. And if they fail to make the playoffs? Well, instead of fessing up to being wrong, just double-down on the playoff teams and reveal what the TRUE conspiracy theory happens to be in order to support how the NFL is rigged and why for yet another series of convoluted explanations. But what if the matchup doesn't occur exactly as you predicted? Well, doesn't matter--the game is still rigged, and there has to be some sort of conspiracy between who wins and who loses, and you've got a 50/50 chance of getting it right, right? Wrong! Because no matter what happens, even when you are wrong, you are always right; you were simply looking at the wrong two football teams or you made a slight error in your predictions.
Let's take, say, the New England Patriots as an example. If they win, then we know the Patriots must have cheated. Because Tom Brady is a cheating shithead, and Bill Bellichick is the devil! Robert Craft must have bought off the refs or something, or bribed the other team to throw in the towel (but make it look convincing), etc. But if the Patriots lose, then the NFL is conspiring against Brady and Bellichick because they hate that they are successful. I only single out the Patriots in particular because they are the easiest team in the entire NFL to manufacture conspiracies around, especially since the team already comes with prescripted conspiracies in case the Patriots win or lose. But it's virtually no good predicting that the Patriots will win it all unless they either win home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, or just shy of that, was clearly the second-best team in all of football heading into the playoffs. As such, it is currently pointless to discuss Patriots conspiracy theories (although, it did look like they would run away with home-field advantage last season, and we all know how their final six games ended...so I suppose we could still come up with progressive theories).
All we have to do is fuel this narrative progressively as the season continues onward. Maybe not every single solitary week, but as we begin to have more and more a clearer picture on what the NFL landscape currently looks like. And as our initial conspiracies begin to dwindle away, we begin to steadily shift our conspiracy theories in another direction. Because no matter what, we are never wrong! Conspiracy theorists when it comes to sports, are experts at sweeping whatever faulty predictions they made earlier on under the rug in order to pass themselves off as being right, and even if their definitive conspiracy theories proving that the game is rigged proves wrong beyond a shadow of a doubt, they will still twist the story around in order to prove that the game was still rigged; they simply got the results wrong, and will then explain and justify the conspiracy behind the result. You deny that you were ever wrong, because conspiracy theorists like to utilize closed reading in order predict and influence their own results.
So with that said, let me give it a try. The NFL is rigging this entire season to make sure the Arizona Cardinals face the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl LI. I mean think about it; what's going on in this current election? It's Hillary Clinton--the first female Presidential candidate--versus Donald Trump--who comes from New York. Buffalo, however, is a more predominantly Republican side of the state of New York, so the Bills are to represent the AFC instead of the New York Jets. But what does Hillary Clinton even have to do with the Cardinals, anyways? Shouldn't it be the Saints or Bears or something like that? I mean, Arizona is a Republican state, so wouldn't that just be Republican vs. Republican? Well, similar to Hillary Clinton, guess what the Cardinals would have in common? That's right! The first female staffer ever to have a shot at winning a Super Bowl! As she is the first female coach ever to be hired onto an NFL team. So wouldn't that be one hell of an accomplishment then for there to be the first female ever to win a Super Bowl ring--even if she's just an assistant? As for the Buffalo Bills, I again, state this as representation of Donald Trump's home state of New York, as well as representing the Republican party as a whole! So, with that said, whoever wins the election will be indicative of which one of these two teams will win the Super Bowl. Just you watch!
Remember back in 2008? The Presidential election was between Barrack Obama and John McCain. Guess who made the Super Bowl? The Cardinals from McCain's home state, and the Pittsburgh Steelers--who were coached by an African-American! Because Obama defeated McCain in the election, the Super Bowl reflected the outcome of the Super Bowl! I'm telling you, it's rigged! Just you wait! The Arizona Cardinals are gonna play the Buffalo Bills, and depending on the outcome of the Presidential election, we are gonna see who between these two teams are gonna win! I guarantee it! Just wait! You'll see! And since I'm predicting a Trump victory, I too am gonna go predict a Buffalo Bills victory against the Cardinals. Why? Because it's rigged, man! It's all a conspiracy!
