  1. NFL 2018-2019 Season Discussion

    Less than a week away from the NFL draft you beautiful babies Ricky Proehl's kid Austin is a potential draft pick. Anyone know of any other kids of Tecmo that could be drafted?
  2. Trying out a topic

    Here is my impression @hoffnasty9 @kamphuna8 @davefmurray of how a club would work on this site. It would allow people to make their own small customized communities within Tecmobowl.org which is sort of what leagues are trying to accomplish. THIS IS THE HSTL. HERE IS OUR LOGO. THIS IS WHAT WE TALK ABOUT. Maybe in today's day and age of discord this is an outdated concept. Maybe it's something that could be applied to Tecmo tourneys instead. In my head, the best implementation is that you are capable of highlighting the purpose of a group while keeping the details under wraps to people not interested. As currently implemented I think clubs don't naturally display themselves on the site so basically you have to stumble into them. That would change in the next update to the software You can read more about it here https://invisioncommunity.com/news/product-updates/43-paid-club-memberships-and-other-club-improvements-r1065/
  3. Trying out a topic

    I recently disabled archiving so that is no longer an issue. There is a big update coming out for this forum software in the near future which will have some enhancements for clubs.
  4. Seems like a nice deal for a league but I'm not sure how it's archived going forward
  5. I was on the radio in Omaha yesterday recapping some of the action. The funniest part was when they thought that "Chet" was a nickname lololololol http://owh.backbonebroadcast.com/owh_mp3/POD20180411165321.mp3
  6. Here is the Silver Championship game between Nos and JP. It was pretty exciting
  7. As a person who has run many (albeit smaller) tournaments I was asked if I would help to run this tournament. I reluctantly accepted because the price I had to pay was not being able to compete. However, having been to enough of these run by the Holtzs and now Dave I know the manpower required to run this and knew Dave needed another body and he has done a lot for this community. As an old man who travels for work and has three kids now it's unfortunately not feasible for me to travel to all of your tournaments without being a substandard father and husband. Thus I'm very thankful that we still have Tecmo Madison for my one chance a year to attempt to see and meet the people of this scene/community I've come to know for the last 15+ years. Congratulations to everyone who competed. I'm not going to name names here because I will forget your name and feel bad about it or generally not know about your personal contributions. Thus, thank you to everyone who brought a TV, cart, Nintendo, controller, or other item necessary to run 70+ Tecmo Super Bowl games at once. Thanks to everyone who runs a tourney in your neck of the woods and tells people about Tecmo Madison. Thank you to everyone who was patient as we attempted to run 3 tournaments at once so we could get people more games. Thank you to everyone who came to the storage locker that Dave rents to store a bunch of old-ass CRT TVs. Thanks to everyone that showed up early to help set up or stayed late to help tear down. Thanks to everyone who came up and said hi to me (despite how much I pretend it's certainly hard for me). Thanks to JD for bringing his very expensive equipment into an environment full of large drunk clumsy men and running a top notch video stream. I was absolutely amazed once I had time to raise my head and see that the main stream was being broadcast throughout the bar in addition to be broadcast via Twitch, youtube, and facebook. I personally inadvertently pulled the power on a camera and tripped over a cord. As a true professional, he didn't chew me out...he just rolled with the punches. Thanks to Bailey for putting together the seeds by following everyone's play over the last year which includes having to adjust groups and players on the fly as guys do or do not show up in the middle of 200+ people worth of chaos. Thanks for calmly putting together the brackets in the chaos of having our scoring system software glitch on rolling out the brackets for tourney play. I will let you know if I will thank you and Jimmy for your velvet smooth commentary on the stream when I have the chance to watch the stream. Thank you to Heather, Ms Disasta, and Tucker for helping to run the brackets, the raffle, herd all the cats, and all the dirty work. Your ability to handle issues from the intoxicated is a level of patience I wouldn't be able to hold up for that long. Last but certainly not least, let's get to Dave. Before I get to the platitudes let me get something off my chest. I hear the whispers about the finances of this tournament...and they're the same whispers I heard when the Holtzs ran this thing.....why isn't more money paid out. The answer is not because this tournament is run at some sort of profit....it wasn't then and it isn't now. I know that in addition to his time, that it costs Dave to run this tournament. He's the one who rents a TV locker...rents a u-haul to move those TVs...rents the tables to hold the TVs. He's the one who flew up on his own dime to find a better location for the tourney. He's the same guy who was flying up on his own dime before all of this to just run the stream when the Holtzs ran the tourney. He's the one who organized the money and covered the rest to fly Gats out his first time. He's the guy that has taken the time to attend other people's tourneys. He's the guy who has been contributing to the community for years. He's the guy took the time with your DMs, emails, phone calls, and texts even though this last month he was able to realize his dream of owning his own business and was juggling both. Thank you Dave for making all of this happen.

    I have unintentionally proven that the off-topic section can be the cause of unnecessary hostility
  12. Is there anyone maintaining a "Where you at" google doc? If so, please post. If not, I nominate last year's keeper of the map of tecmo stars
