OG Tecmo Bowl Question

ROM Editing Discussion 26 Sep 2014
Spurred on by a suggestion from Tecmo Turd, I've decided to take a look at giving the 32 team Original Tecmo Bowl (no Super here) a graphical touch-up, starting with the title screen.    There's precious little info on OG Tecmo here, and I have a question i was hoping someone (with grea...

NFL Films Presents Tecmo Super Bowl


One of the relatively exciting developments for last year's annual Madison Tecmo Tournament was the rumor that NFL Films would be present to record the tournament as part of a documentary they planned to do on Tecmo Super Bowl. Well, they showed up last March and some of that footage will be featured in their Tecmo related release. We assume that in addition to the spotlight on how the game has become a cult classic that we'll see how the game might be perceived by former NFL players featured in the game.
We've recently been advised that NFL Films' piece on Tecmo Super Bowl will air on the following dates:

10/22/12 @ 12:30 a.m. EST (ESPN 2)
10/24/12 @ 2:30 p.m. EST (ESPN 2)
10/26/12 @ 4:30 p.m. EST (NFL Network)
10/27/12 @ 1:30 p.m. EST (NFL Network)

These are tentative dates/times, so "check your local listings." Run time is 30 minutes (really 22 mins of air time), so we're not sure how much time will be devoted to the Madison Tournament or its participants. That this is even airing, however, is pretty amazing.

They better interview Johnny Johnson!!! The first Cardinal rookie runningback to make the Probowl since the late 70's! I'm pretty sure he still lives in Phoenix.

I've already called my family & friends letting them know about these showings. I will love it more watching it with my friends & family. I grew up when this game came out. Me and about 6-7 of my family and friends would get through a season in about 2 weeks. For a whole 2 years non stop that was our life... school and tecmo. Girls waited as we played our season games and playoffs. My mother would feed us. Some would sleep over and play season games at 3 am in the morning and others waited around to get their games in. We would have stat books that went on and on. This truly is awesome... I keep trying to get everyone back into it, but they are so damn busy with life and are not looking for hobbies these days. Hopefully this NFL Film touches them seriously. We would have a lot of new blood if it did...
