HSRL 1970 ROM Release Thread: Super Bowl is Out!

24 posts in this topic

Weeks one and two are out! 


 


It's September of 1970 and Richard Nixon is president.   America is in the midst of the Vietnam War.  M*A*S*H is a hit at the box office. Throughout the preseason NFL teams were getting pumped up by Edwin Starr's #1 hit.

The first two weeks of the season, Motown continued to top the charts, as Starr was supplanted by an inspirational tune by Diana Ross.

Which NFL team will be able to climb the mountain and take home the first title of the merger era?  Good luck!

After Diana Ross reigned supreme for three weeks, a new number one hit from Neil Diamond ruled the land.

Larry Csonka returns to action, though his teammates have nicknamed him "Cracklin' Rosie" as a reference to his brittle bones.

Week 5 is out a day early since we were under 13 games unplayed.  Week 6 will come out Thursday evening.  Good luck!

Week 6 is out as we near the end of October.  The Jackson Five will dominate the top of the charts for the next five weeks.  That little Michael could have a bright future if he hits a few gain rolls.

We're into mid-November and now 10 of the 14 weeks have been released.  The new number one hit of the land essentially describes the way I'm feeling about my squad these days.  How about you?

Pretty easy for me, I will have to go with the #5 on the 1970 Billboard top 100.  "War"


 


Not just because of the name but the main words are fitting even though my record may say otherwise.  "War!  Huh! yeeeah!...Whaat is it good for....... absolutely nothing!"

Remember that this is only a 14-week season, folks, so there are now all but two ROMs released. 


 


The eight-game deadline is Thursday night (or Friday morning when I get my first look).  Psycho gets his demerit revoked for having all games in at the time of the ROM release.  Good job!

The final two weeks have been released!  The smoky playoff picture will clear up as some fortunate teams get miracles in their final games, while Smokey Robinson and the Miracles rule the top of the charts.

Good luck to all; the ten-game deadline is Thursday night.  Have all your games in by April 8th.  Once all games are in we'll get the off-season routine going and see what happens in the playoffs.

Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!  The divisional round occurred on the 26th and 27th of December, while George Harrison was making everyone feel real groovy.

Deadline to get these in will be one week, but please make an effort to play sooner rather than later.

The Super Bowl ROM has been released and is scheduled for 9:30PM EST Tuesday night.  Is there anyone who would be willing to stream the game if I or GoNick sent them the nsv and ROM following the game?

I can restream it tonight right after it's finished. I could also cast it if people were interested, but I'm fine with not and being quiet as well. twitch.tv/neerrm

Cool.  I will send you the files, regardless of who wins.  Should I send them via PM or e-mail, or just hit you up on AIM?

Any of the three work fine. I'll go with email, since that'll blow up my phone. My username at Gmail dot com
