    This is the Tecmo Madison "Last Chance" Event Signup: http://tecmobowl.org/lincoln What: Tecmobowl.org Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament Where: Lincoln, Nebraska @ Barry's Bar and Grill - http://barrysbarandgrill.com/ - Located in Downtown Lincoln in the Haymarket - 235 N. 9th St Lincoln, NE When: Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 - Tournament Check-in between 11-11:45am, game play to start at 11:45 am How much does it cost? - $20. Pay at the event. There is an ATM if you're the guy who never has cash. Tournament Limit - Tourney will be capped at 64 players Is there a payout? - Payout will be for the top 4 finishers based on the number of people that show up at the event. I'm working on a belt/trophy for this year. Will there be food? - Yes they have a great menu. Format 4 person groups will play world cup style to determine seeding into a single elimination tournament. The semi final losers will play for 3rd/4th place. The amount of people to advance to the tournament and/or available systems will determine Rules Team Selection & Coin Toss: A manual coin-flip will precede each game. The coin-flip winner can choose the matchup (i.e. the two teams) or defer the matchup choice to the coin-flip loser. If the winner chooses the matchup, the winner is given the P1 controller, and the loser chooses his choice of the two teams in the matchup. If the winner defers the matchup choice, the winner is given the P2 controller, the loser will then choose the matchup and the winner will select his choice of the two teams. In summary, the winner of the coin toss either gets P1 and choice of matchup or P2 and choice of teams. “One Matchup Once” Rule: The coin-flip winner can only select a particular matchup once throughout the entire tournament. For instance, if Player A wins the toss and selects Packers-Browns, Player A cannot call that exact matchup for the rest of the tournament. Player B, however, is free to select that matchup later in the tournament. Customizing Playbooks and Lineup Changes: Customizing playbooks is permissible. WR or TE at RB: A WR/TE cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. You can insert a WR or TE into a RB slot for lead blocking purposes, but he cannot carry the football. To further clarify, players such as Ernest Givins, Ricky Sanders, and Andre Rison cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. Ties: If a game ends in a tie after overtime, a new game will begin, and the first player to score in the new game is the winner. Lurching: Lurching is prohibited. If you want to rush with a DL, you must either go outside the offensive tackle or “popcorn” someone on the offensive line. You cannot simply go around your blocker and dive. Note that this rule does not apply to LBs. Nintendo Malfunctions: If there is an equipment failure in the first half, games will be replayed from the start. If equipment malfunctions in the 2nd half, only the second half is replayed. In that event, the scores from each half are added together to obtain a final score. If the game was uncompetitive or the equipment malfunctioned due to human error, the tourney organizers reserve the right to declare a winner without replaying any portion of the game. Tournament Disputes: Matt Knobbe is the tournament referee. He will decide all disputes unless he is a player in the game. If he is a player in the disputed game, Jason Rolf will resolve the dispute.

    Like many of you on this forum, I believe Tecmo Super Bowl for the Nintendo Entertainment System is the greatest sports video game of all time. The reasons for this are many, and the players of this forum already know the reasons why. My question is this; Is Tecmo Super Bowl in its natural 100% organic state still the greatest sports video game of all time? Is lurching broken? Does putting position players anywhere in offensive formations make it unfair? Finding out the answers to these questions is what motivated me to create the Tecmo Super Bowl Hardcore Championship taking place in Chicago, IL on Saturday, June 9th 2018 at Dmen Tap. Now I already know what you are probably thinking….I'm off my rocker. And yes, if you have played this game for years in online leagues and live tournaments in an established proven format I get where you are coming from. Maybe this format is not for you. All I'm asking players to do, is play Tecmo Super Bowl in a live tournament the way it came fresh out of that box back in 1991 to determine a Champion. So let me give a little background of where I am coming from with this. Up until almost exactly 10 years ago when I played my first game on the Tecmo Players Circuit, I had never played Tecmo Super Bowl with any in-game bans or substitution bans. In the hundreds of games I played against the CPU and with their default playbooks, it was pretty clear the nose tackle dive was broken. Sacks were extremely easy to rack up against the CPU, and after a while it got boring using the lurching move all the time. Luckily for me, I had a brother, an uncle, and a few cousins who loved playing Tecmo Super Bowl as well. We would always play it randomly when we saw each other during family visits. This commonality of affection for one video game ultimately led to the inception of the annual Family Christmas Eve Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament in 2006. The tournament is still an annual Christmas event and we have yet to set any rules. From my experience in these tournaments the right playbook selection makes lurching at best a very risky gamble. The majority of the time the lurch fails against a player with quick recognition passing skills, or almost any run play that isn't a run up the middle. The lurch failure usually leads to a huge gain for the offense or a touchdown. My cousin Ryan is a notorious lurcher in these tournaments and every once in a great while he breaks up a play with a lurch. Now once I see him attempt a lurch or two, I'm licking my chops waiting to call the right running play to blow up that Nose Tackle and take it in for the touchdown. This happens pretty much every year I end up playing him, which leads to him staying away from user controlling the Nose Tackle simply because he now recognizes it's not his best option on defense when playing an experienced player. The way this plays out is the Nose Tackle dive is only used in infrequent spells to throw off your opponent or catch him off guard. It's not an every down thing and if it were, an experienced player would destroy you. As far as substitutions, most notably Wide Receivers at Running Back, this has never been broken. All it does is increase the value of some of the teams by having a faster Running Back. Teams like the 49ers, Oilers, Eagles, Dolphins, Rams, Redskins, Vikings, Falcons, among others can benefit from choosing to have a faster Running Back. After pondering for a while if I should throw a tournament without the conventional rules, I asked Mort where the lurching ban came from. His response made complete sense. He said it came from the online lag that had to be adjusted for using the Nesticle emulator. Players were not able to adjust to the lurch in time to make the game very playable. It was deemed a cheap move for online play and was banned ever since. If any of you have played on Nesticle, you know how bad the lag was. After hearing this historical reference, I knew now was the time to bust out the Hardcore Format! In the coming months, I will be explaining in more detail the Tier List you see below as well as giving playbook suggestions for the Hardcore Format. The entry fee, prizes, tournament format, and entry fee inclusions will be revealed after Kumite VI and Lincoln VIII.

    Wow what an Tournament ran by @RetroNathan and crew. I mean just the Freaking "Red Zone" Channel was a neat with 2 games streamed with announcers was sweet to watch. I remember watching some games live and using the stream as an replay. The announcers i thought nailed it @hoffnasty9 @Ryan11p @flash80 @Darth RockMan I believe. There was some rumor on the stream as to if i was drinking. I had some spotted cows but i took it easy as my doctor wants cut the drinking down. My favorite thing was my buddy from home was rooting for me on the facebook live thing and texting me more and more the farther i made it. That was awesome. Ty @mort1237 for all the years of coaching and helping getting my drunk ass to tournaments in the past. Random Takes *** There was some guy i played who was Nicknamed "Chopper". I was like how'd u get ur nickname? Chopper was like i was conceived in a helicopter lol!!! *** @son_of_pat_beach Was Near "Burning Mort Level" Lit to Say the Least...All those bellowing Viking horn calls lol and shimmey shakes. And had a hell of run by the Rise of Emisle Harry back Shoulder TD Pass ( The wr on Curl was so slow he got open in front of 2 db's for game tieing td as time expired in wild OT game vs @joeygats Sorry bud just a bad break. Beach also had weird play vs @hoffnasty9 who had a fine run in 1st tourney. On a Called Red Gun Pass...Beaches pass was completed over the middle to Marc paige of Mia who somehow ran backwards to catch the ball. I never seen anything like this b4. 3o2 3rd Qtr. *** @Ones11fahzu What an class act punting back after i got screwed on safety glitch JJ Pick by haddix. *** Even @mort1237 had some rough luck in close games vs the Miller Boys but watch the stream. But just some wild games. He had a great time. He also played some blindfolded games for fun. *** I think @Casual T won the "Oh Ellard Jersey" *** No surprise but i won a raffle prize again...a Mike Dikta Framed Photo which is in a random Chicago storage center locked away. I think i should be banned from raffles fron now on!!! *** Someone i think bought me a case of Spotted Cow @The Shield I think. Ty brother. I could not bring it back with me. next time i see a free meal is coming your way. *** @Coconuts had some rough breaks but man can this motherfucker run the football. best Jukes i saw all day. He said i havn't played in 3months. My ass sir!!! *** Ty to @joeygats and @hankthetank letting me and @kevincabarello and Mort crash. All those hard games vs u guys paid off. *** Ty to @trojan1979 for having Nes Set Up at boehmer's ready to go all weekend. Good call brother. Nice job taking the Consolation bracket. *** Ty to @davefmurray for the setting up the Madison Major Circuit. *** I missed out on Nba Jam with @Ryan11p and @kevincabarello but nice job with WR on Snes ( I believe ) *** TundraBowl V The Rise Of Em isle Harry *** It was very classy of @regulator088 to let Josh H restart the game and give him an extra possession after their game froze. I'm sorry i had to decline the shot for score proposal due to my doctors orders. That woulda of been crazy. *** I think i'm like a basketball player who goes thru hot and cold streaks while playing tecmo. Peace fellas Till Next Time Long Live Tecmo

    Nick Foles is the new QB Eagles! Loved his performance last night. (I know, I know, Wentz will be back at the helm next year) Congrats to Philly fans, and thanks to both teams for a highly entertaining super bowl. I was pulling for the 'gles, of course, but more than anything I wanted to see an exciting SB game. This was one for the ages. Last 3 Pats SBs have pitted Brady vs NFC birds ... 2018 Brady vs Cardinals in the SB ... ?!

    Well... my feeling after week 1 that continued throughout the entire year came back to be the ultimate reason they didn't get #6. Another great Super Bowl. But man, what a pathetic performance by the Pats D. I don't mind saying it. Brady throws for over 500 yards, 3 TDs... and loses. Just crazy. Oh well. The team exceeded my expectations this year after losing both Edelman and Hightower and will be back next year. Congrats to Philly... they came to play. What gutsy calls from Pederson... converting on two 4th downs. He's got balls of steel! That play call at the end of the first half... wow. Eagles came in with a great offensive game plan and they executed. Until next season...

    I had an absolute blast at Blono Tecmo XV. Thank you Chris, Tim, and everyone else who had a hand in putting on the tourney. @Tecmo Psycho, great write-up on the tourney. It was awesome to meet and play you. You are a great guy. As for our loser's bracket game, I should have taken the Eagles! Although I just know you would have obliterated me with that Bears defense ... And don't worry about the lags between matches toward the end of the night. Believe me, the Chicago boys were all having a great time (except Flo for a spell there ). We didn't get home till late, but we knew what we were getting into. If we made frequent mention about how long the stream/tournament was going, it was all in fun. We were in the moment and having the time of our lives. I believe I speak for most of us when I say we are hooked, and we'll definitely be back next year for Blono Tecmo XVI ... when you should be prepared to suffer my revenge! Oh, and congrats to @tecmobo! Even though you're "not even good," you put together an impressive run

    That was a new height of shenanigans from @XtraLargent and @~Tailback King~ So many crazy things happened yesterday but without question #1 was when BWagg summoned TBK for a beer break? Or something? I was too dumbfounded to know but it was like a full 10 minute break... I was up 16-10 on TBK with his Browns driving on my Seahawks. He came back, fired a TD to Slaughter, then I somehow responded with a drive of my own and a winning FG despite being thoroughly rattled by the circumstance and Brandon and Rudy's chirping. Incredible tournament and that was one of many amazing games. That was probably what stood out more than anything. I saw and was involved in a bunch of exciting games. What else... James Brooks is the Future. That kid was awesome. 10 yrs old and holding his own. "Nightmare" and "Neckbeard" were two other new faces that brought it. "Boy Toy" the straggler who got in the mix... That was cool. TBK is PROBABLY getting smarter with his matchup calls. CLE-SEA was a surprise and he had me up against the ropes. I don't know how impressed I should be by his win vs Matt. WTF was @gripsmoke thinking calling Dal-KC?? He def got screwed with NES malfunctions twice, somewhat marring an otherwise strong showing from the hometown kid. #PukeAndRally Great quotes from the group all day but my favorite was when in the first game of the day, TBK fumbled then one of his dudes scooped it and scored and he said semi-seriously "Has that ever happened in the history of Tecmo??" and then everyone said "uh... yeah" then he got a safety soon after and said "Has THAT ever happened in the history of Tecmo???" then everyone kept saying "Has that ever happened in the history of Tecmo??" everytime something mildly interesting happened... But at the end of the day, something I GUARANTEE that has never happened in the history of Tecmo... happened.... @Tick won back to back games elimination games vs @ptitteriand myself, both in OT when he went for the kick on 3rd down, got it blocked, recovered, then hit the winner on 4th...... The 2nd of which, came with some ghostage from David Treadwell.... We will never know what happened there....... But congrats to everyone for great competition and especially Tick, Grip and @kamphuna8 who rose above the chaos for a long overdue major championship victory. I blame the deliciousness of Laurelwood Workhorse IPA for anything that was less than ideal with the organization of this event, but I suppose it wouldn't be a PNW Tecmo Tournament if everything was smooth and sober. Let's do it again soon.

    Thanks for coming out “Tecmo Jon” you and “Tecmo Kris” took like ducks to water with us. it used to be classified as a tournament, but we are definitely more of an experience like Burning Mort. We need 2 sober guys to work the stream one of these years. I was on another planet by the 3rd game. Tecmo Jon picked up the pieces of stream and bracket so I’d say it was our best stream yet!

    It was seriously a blast. The games were all close due to alcohol evening up the overall skill level - and since we were playing for bragging rights, some good natured smack talk was always on the cards. For all the crazy, games got done quick, the bracket was not a complete and total disaster, and the whole experience was worth it. 5 out of 5 stars would recommend if you aren't too full of yourself and are interested in just having fun at a tournament.

Not only did he play outstanding Tecmo, he called excellent matchups. Well played sir. Well played. Hope to see many of you who were at Tundra Bowl at the Detroit Kumite in March!

    Okay. I told SBlueman I'd give him feedback, so I'll post my Eagles season/s inter-Romulic findings here. What're we talking, here? Here we're talking MANvCOM, TSB2017-v2.0-Hardtype-No P2 Hack {SBlueman} / Goji's NFL Tecmo Super Bowl LII (ver2.0)(Juiced Version) ... Let us begin. While SBlueman's presents the slower-gameplay Rom, it's also the slightly-more challenging. Why is this? 1st, it begins with how defenders close on your ball-carrier. ie., they don't generally dive/whiff-tackle. This additionally makes RUNNING the rock hard as funk! 2nd - in terms of challenging - the "bar" for FG's/punts actually moves faster, making those tougher. Not to mention, extra-points are awesomely placed further away 3rd (also in terms of challenge-factor), it's harder to intercept the ball (compare 4 total picks for SBlueman's Rom, to 15 for Goji's) ... That is why I went 12-4 in SBlueman's Rom - beat S.F by 7 in the Wild-Card, MIN by 1 in the Div - and lost to the Saints (by 9) in the CC, while going 12-3-1 with gojiphen malor's Rom and Won it all (after Div vs. CAR by 16, CC vs. DET by 18) over the Jaguars 17-16. SBlueman: I like how you put P.ROBINSON at an OLB spot, but no Chris Long (anywhere else)?!? Also, FOLES is no. 9 (not 4). And (just in terms of personal preference), I like it when your Rom's endzones are either minimalist, or say SBLUEMAN {like the good ol' days!} ... All-in-all, excellent stuffs; and Thank-both-of you guys (and @maverick209)!! [Let me know, if there's other info you'd like]

    Amazing game, it will go down in the books for memorable moments. Congrats to the Eagles and their fans. It's fun to watch a team finally get over the hump and achieve their first SB win ever. Very happy for Nick Foles after all the things he's went through over the years. He went from almost retiring after his time with Jeff Fisher's Rams, alllll the way to becoming SB MVP. What a journey. Credit to Brady last night even though the Pats lost. He played out of his mind and racked up the 500 yards passing, breaking his own SB record and also breaking Bernie Kosar's old record of most yards in a post season game. Now you all know how I feel and other Saints fans when we watch Brees put up crazy numbers and we still lose games cause the defense plays so terribly. This reminded me a lot of several Saints losses between 2012 to 2016 (hell, even this past year in the playoffs, the defense completely shits the bed after Brees has a crazy comeback). It's going to be a sad day when Brady retires, I understand the feeling of love for your QB who puts the team on his back and goes out in a blaze of glory.

    1979 Houston Oilers For: Old School Smashmouth Not For: High Tech Bullshit Power Rank: 14 BURP: 21 1979 was the height of the Luv Ya Blue hysteria in Houston. The Oilers had experienced mostly rough times in their existence, but coach Bum Phillips brought a new attitude and personality to the team. In 1978 they drafted RB Earl Campbell of Texas and he won ROY and MVP as the Oilers made it all the way to the AFC Championship. By '79 they were really rolling with Campbell leading the way. 1,697 yds on the ground. 19 touchdowns. They made it all the way to the AFC Championship again vs the Steelers again and gave them a tough test, with a crucial call on a Mike Renfro TD grab not going their way proving critical. Campbell doesn't get mentioned much when discussing the all-time backs due by comparison to the other greats, his short career, but he was as devastating a runner ever to do it. Scouting Report Earl Campbell has some redonkulous stats here... except for ball control. Dan Pastorini is OK and has a few guys to look for in the passing game. Campbell's supporting cast might not look like much at first glance, but its a nice mix of guys to work in and out of the lineup based on condition. Kicker Tony Fritsch had a money season and gets rewarded with a 69 rating. The defense has lots of nice pieces including veterans Elvin Bethea and Curley Culp on the DL. I like this team a lot because they have big time players in positions you typically want to select- Robert Brazile at ROLB and Mike Rienfeldt at RS. This team may not have as much overall talent as others below them, but if you know how to utilize what they have, they could be very very tough to contend with.

    OK - here's my Super Bowl prediction (this is original... if it's been said somewhere else, I am not aware of it). To continue with the "underdog" role, Philly NEEDS to have Vince Papale as their honorary captain! And the Pats need to counter with Mark Wahlberg, who played Papale in the movie. This needs to happen!
