    Congratulations to Shawn S. @stalltalk for his impressive win in this year's New York City Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament. He led the Bucs to a 17-3 win over Brian R. @Bad Moon Rison in the final. Jim T. @powerade took down Louis B. @red98sethuthut in the third-place game. We were unable to stream from the event this year, but @suicideking81 recorded a lot of games and is planning to make those available soon, so look for that forthcoming. Here is an interview I did with the champ and runner-up: I did a few other interviews throughout the day that I'll follow up with as I get them uploaded. Here also is the final bracket: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oCDiyPhMO6ETU9dIN6EtxcPyO9H-pLhVVMjZmQxlV8M/edit?usp=drive_web Thanks to everyone who participated, both those fellow NYers who joined us and those who traveled to be with us. Thanks to Brian, Ryan K. @hoigaard, and everyone else who put in the work to make this event so much fun. And lastly, thanks to Raven's Head Public House (http://www.ravensheadpublichouse.com/) for both saving our butts at the last minute and for providing a great new venue for our event.

    HSTL Season 38 Google DOC Positions Drafted (11 ROUNDS): QB1 / RB1 or RB2 / RB1 or RB2 / WR1 or WR2 / WR1 or WR2 / QB2-TE1-TE2 / RB3-RB4-WR3-WR4-K-P / DL-LB-DB / DL-LB-DB / DL-LB-DB / OL-LB-DB Rules: To initiate the HSTL S38 Draft process, the commissioner will divide the league into tiers based on last year's results. Then a random process will be utilized to determine a set order within those tiers, all-in-all ending with a sequenced list of owners #1-28. The HSTL S38 Draft will be conducted "snake" style, and we will draft 2 rounds per day again this season. Each pick will have a 15-minute time frame assigned to it. You can make your pick as soon as your time frame begins.... OR after ALL picks ahead of yours have been made. Make sure you get your pick submitted before your 15 minutes are up so the next guy in line doesn't steal your player. Your two scheduled draft times will be the same each day of the timed draft. So learn them, get to know them, take them out, touch them, feel them, they are yours. If the end of a round comes and there is a team who has not made a pick, the Commish / Draft Mods will make a pick for that team. They will do their best to select a player whom they believe is the best available while also balancing that decision against the team's needs. This is never ideal, so please commit to making yourself available during both of your time slots each day... and if you cannot do so, plan ahead and post a list in that specific draft round's thread.... OR recruit a buddy to make your selection for you during your time slot. Etc: NOTE ON TANDEMS: You may select any designated tandem from a given OG Team. For near simultaneous posts from someone whose pick is up and from someone who is behind in the draft, post order will determine who gets what. No trading of draft picks or draft position. The draft positions are also all located on the team tab of the google doc. Remember no WR/TE can carry the ball in HSTL except on reverses. Once you've posted, you may NOT retract your pick under any circumstance, even if you have someone else picking for you. If a timed pick is skipped, the subsequent picks DO NOT have to wait until their scheduled time to make their pick. Don't forget... LB1 is allowed on both XPs and FGs! The official attribute list is the OG ROM, and the Google Doc is not responsible for being wrong, you get what you get OG style, and so forth Please ask if you have any questions. Please help the new guys out as much as you can and remember this is for fun. Mistakes are bound to happen, and things might not always be as updated as you wish.vThe draft mods are an all-volunteer crew, and have real jobs and lives to attend to as well, so please be patient with us and let us know if you see a mistake anywhere (google doc or threads) so we can fix it ASAP.

    my best advice is: 1. get to know the teams and their best players, strengths and weaknesses. take notes if necessary. 2. get to know the playbooks. 3. enter zen

    (NES) NCAA Tecmo Bowl 2017

    I haven't played through the season yet, but if Lamar Jackson, Dalvin Cook, Jalen Hurd, and others are moving like this in exhibition, YIKES!! I wasn't ready!! We may have a new rival for most unstoppable video game character. I played with Georgia and found that QB 'Jason Eason' should be "Jacob Eason." I caught a pick-6 with 97 Atkins, and his first name should be spelled 'Jon' instead of 'John.' Rom is dope!

    I hope you found your Creedence tape, Dude, ’cause we’ve got a bad moon Rison. As in Atlanta’s ubiquitous 1990’s wide out, Andre Rison. Last time, we extolled the pure awesome of Seattle DE Jacob Green. Outside the Pacific Northwest, though, you’d find more familiarity with than Jacob. Our man Andre “Bad Moon” Rison, on the other hand, reached Zubaz-level popularity in the 90’s. Maybe it was his four straight pro bowl appearances from 1990-1993. Maybe it was his tempestuous (dare we say… “fiery?”) relationship with pop-star Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. Whatever the reason, anyone who remembers football in the 90’s remembers Andre Rison.Drafted 22nd overall by the Indianapolis Colts in the 1989 NFL draft, Rison averaged an impressive 15 yards per catch during his rookie campaign. Indy, however, desperate for a QB, traded a package including Rison to Atlanta for the 1990 draft’s overall No. 1. Indy used the No. 1 on Captain Underwhelming, Jeff George[1]. The trade paid Atlanta instant dividends: Rison torched defenses in 1990, earning him the first of five All-Pro honors. Two things stand out here: impressive speed and ridiculous hands. Rison’s 63 Max Speed puts Andre behind only Jerry Rice (TSB’s overall #1 receiver), Barry Sanders, and Mr. Tecmo himself, Bo Jackson. Not bad company to keep. Even better, Andre Rison’s 44 Rushing Speed mans he hits that top gear in the blink of an eye[2]. Andre’s real asset, though, vital when trying to snag the wounded ducks thrown by ATL QB1 Chris Miller[3], is his 75 Receptions score. Some called Andre, “Spider Man.” Rison’s hands were like Peter Parker on stickum. To put it another way, Tecmo Andre Rison is a machine that eats garbage throws and craps out beautiful, JJ catches. Andre Rison was Defying Gravity since before Elphaba made it cool. The problem with Andre Rison, more so than we had with Seattle’s Jacob Green, is that he is the only weapon on ATL’s offense. Atlanta finished the 1989 season 2-14, worst in the NFL. 1990 saw only marginal improvement, to 5-11. Tecmo Rison is shoehorned into an absolutely putrid team. ATL’s best RB is the unspectacular Mike Rozier. Their QBs, as stated, lob harder than a drunk playing slow-pitch softball. The Falcons’ next best WR, Shawn Collins, is above average but not any sort of threat. So the problem with Andre Rison isn’t Andre Rison at all[4], but his sun-warmed dog pile of a team. The obvious answer is to swap Rison into ATL’s RB1 and then feed him the rock on literally every down. However, most all Tecmo Super Bowl tournaments prohibit the WR/RB swap. If you’re stuck with the Falcons during, say, this Summer’s Midwest Tecmo Tournament in Ohio, a little creativity is needed to maximize a beast like Andre Rison. Coach Jerry Glanville’s Atlanta Falcons operated a modified Run ‘n’ Shoot offense. Therefore, the TSB Falcons use only one starting RB. However, a number of their passes employ a T backfield. Swapping Andre Rison to the first WR slot puts him beside the QB on these T formation passes. The play “T Play Action D,” for example, run fakes to Rison then parks him just behind the linebackers. Running Rison on a short route to the middle of the field forces your opponent to make a choice: cover the deep man or spy Andre near the line of scrimmage. Either choice gives ATL a decent shot at positive yardage, even with Chris Miller hucking the ball. Other plays in the book would see Rison running a hard slant to the bottom sideline. Even on a full-rush, the chances aren’t terrible that “Spider Man” catches the desperation lob. You could also move Andre into another WR slot, seeking the opponent’s worst defender. It’s not ideal, but, hey, it’s something. And if you’re saddled with ATL’s putrid offense, Andre Rison is all the “something” you’ve got. [1]Coincindentally, Indy would unload George to Atlanta for some paltry draft picks three years later, meaning Atlanta acquired Rison (and All-Pro OL Chris Hinton) for practically nothing. [2]Andre is actually better off the line than Jackson and Sanders [3]Just a year later Atlanta would draft Brett Favre. Coach Jerry Glanville, however, detested the pick and only let The Gunslinger attempt four passes before shipping the Hall-of-Famer to Green Bay for chump change. But “What If?” Brett Favre shooting bullets to Andre Rison and Dion Sanders? Oh man, that’s almost too much 1990s for me to handle. [4]Actually, Andre’s 50 Ball Control score is a bit whelming. There’s nothing wrong with 50 BC, but there’s nothing particularly exciting about it, either. The lion’s share of Tecmo WRs have 50 BC. Jerry Rice, for comparison scores an 81, fumbling with all the frequency of Hailey’s Comet. The post Good Player, Bad Team – Andre Rison appeared first on TECMOBOWLERS. View the full article
