  1. Hear ye, Hear ye. The following describes not a tournament per se, but rather a live console season in which many games will be played at the same time rather than having to wait for 1 game. All season stats will not only be available for perusal on the game roms but also updated on our CFT Phile as we proceed. The goal is to give all owners as close to the original live tecmo season experience as possible, without taking so much time to complete, and with all teams closer to each other in overall attributes. In so doing, we all accept our fates and acknowledge the greatness that is the Tecmo Super Deities, and their love that will rein down upon us in all its forms and greatness, whether it be the JJs, the CCs, the condition or injury love/hate, and that most barbarous and diabolical form... THE JEALOUSY! Our goal is also to have at least 12 (more is possible) owners join for festivities. Location: Kamp's Garage (address will be emailed to all parties involved) Date/Time: July 28, 2018. Begin at 9AM Pacific Time. YES 9AM DAMMIT! Cost: $10 (Super Bowl Winner collects all monies) All Praises to the Tecmo Gods Streamed? YAS! The goal is to Record all games and Stream one to two games at a time (depending on how the game(s) are shaping up. But not two complete games at the same time) Yes Inspired by the Red Zone Channel and other similar stream styles where multiple games can be displayed. Streams will be on https://www.twitch.tv/kamphuna8/ Season 1 Videos can be accessed there or on the youtube playlist that follows. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3icdCQkyCZ6K_89RktFbQvh3FTYGFTdg Website: http://www.pnw.puretecmo.com/main/main.php Format and Draft: All games will be played on NES Consoles using Everdrive Flash Carts. Teams will be drafted in a non-Snake format using the attached Spreadsheet. Draft order will be based on previous year's performance. Those that were not there will be placed according to my discretion. The draft will be similar to HSTL format in terms of rosters. Each position group including QBs (x2) RBs (x4) WR/TEs (x6) OL (x5) DL (x3) LB (x4) DB (x4) will be drafted by each owner. All the OL, DL, LB and DB tandems are going to be locked in to their alignment that is on the original Tecmo Super Bowl rom. No WRs or TEs can carry the ball on a RB run play. A salary cap will also be utilized (according to the tecmo_salary_cap.xlsx spreadsheet from @bruddog ) where no team can go over the $100 mark. K/P will all have the same attributes (50 50 I believe) and Owners can provide names and faces for their idiot kickers. A night will be organized and announced for the draft on our discord channel. I'm going to suggest our draft be over the actual NFL Draft weekend, sometime from April 26 to 28th. Linked Resources follow >>>> CFT Draft Template and CFT 1 Draft CFT Season 2 Draft will begin Friday April 20 at 4:20pm Cascadia time. This will be a rolling draft, meaning that technically there is no time limit or expectation that we are all tied to be present at the same time. Picks will be made through discord and I will solely update them in the Google sheet we will use. The draft order is based on season 1's results and the guys who didn't play season 1, I inserted them where I think was most fair according to Cascadia Tecmo History and impending shenaniGGans. Here is the link to the Google Sheet -------> CFT 2 Draft The Draft order is as follows. 1. larrybird33 2. joeyhoneybee 3. @~Tailback King~ 4. @TheProfessor 5. @Polish Rifle 6. @Tick 7. @boogiewithstu 8. @manYo720 9. @fairfensheeding 10. @gripsmoke 11. @invader_star64 12. @XtraLargent 13. @DT. 14. @kamphuna8 Regular Season: Regular season will be in a Round Robin format with everyone playing everyone else. There will be 2 conferences (no divisions in the conferences) with at least 6 teams in each conference. This will limit the choices for owners joining in Season 2. For owners that participated in CFT Season 1, the same teams will be used (this may change, I just have to flesh out the implications of how it will all be displayed and accessed when looking at team histories on the CFT Phile) Actually, I think there's no problem changing Franchises. We're not a dynasty league..yet. If we get exactly 12 players, it will be an 11 game season and with a 9AM start time, we should be finished with the regular season by 7pm. With the current setup, we will have at least 3 stations to play all the games. Potentially 4, but either way, with 6 games per regular season week, it will take at least the time it normally takes to complete two TSB games to finish each week. Conditions and injuries will function as they would on a normal console Regular Season, with conditions carrying over from week to week, and injuries that can result in a player missing up to two more games after the game in which the injury occurred. ALL HAIL THE Tecmo Super Deities! Playoffs!!?!: After the Regular Season concludes, the playoffs will all be played on one console with each playoff game streamed. Playoff seeds will be determined using Tecmo Super Bowl's tiebreaker logic, with teams in each conference seeded from 1 thru 6 according to regular season record, and the tiebreaker is point differential. In the event of a tie with same point differential, the team that won the regular season matchup will get the higher seed. Top 2 seeds in each conference get that Wild Card Round bye. The final regular season Rom save will be hacked to place the 12 playoff teams into the TSB Playoff bracket. The Playoffs will determine the Cascadia Effin' Tecmo Super Champion for Season 2! Participant list for Season 2: CFT Player Profiles linked as well. Team Logos are from teams used in previous seasons. If new franchises are requested, we can move them. Potentially we will have upper tier players and lower tier players sorted by conference. TBD 1. kamphuna8 - Confirmed CFT History 2. @boogiewithstu - confirmed CFT History 3.

Team TBD Job signups: Convert Upload and Merge crew: X2 Stream maintenance: X2 Other jobs? Disputes and Game fails/resets/glitches - We are all grown men and will figure it out. But I will reserve right to lay the law if need be. THE REST OF THIS POST IS HIGHLY TECHNICAL AND NERDY. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK... Visions for the future: This will continue to be a summer event going forward. Eventually I would like to grow this to be a 16 game season. This could be done over one weekend (2 days or 3) or spread over over more time (1 day on consecutive weekends or something like that) With still around 12 players I could still do it in my garage and we could do a 16 game season where each team plays each of the other 5 same conference teams twice and the opposite conference teams once 5x2 + 6 = 16. I know thats a lot of tecmo to play in a short time, so we'll see how that develops. I also hope to get some non PNW KampBuddies out to future CFT seasons. I envision pairs of tecmo brethren from around the same region could take a tecmocation out here to the PNW where it's pretty much great weather once you get past July 4th, and usually before hand as well. Like my Chicago chaffeurs to Madison @modeezie and @toolie, B&G Vets @stalltalk and @MattyD, NTF brethren @chiefsjr83 and @redskinsfan1124 , and @arncoem and @baxterbear12 . Other considerations include making this a regional event, holding part or whole seasons in different PNW locales and providing time to take in the scenery wherever it may be, and perhaps some local haunts. Another potential for the future is to carry forward with the goal of having a dynasty type season setup starting in the 60s like Manyo planned (or perhaps the 20s like my nerdy ass would want) and do a few short seasons a year during the Feb to Jun or July months (like Manyo planned originally for dates on the 3rd Saturday of each month). Hacks included on Rom: The goal is to have these hacks (mostly for stat purposes) while not affecting any change in the actual game play itself when compared to playing a TSB Season on an actual TSB Cart and NES console. Tapmeter - Counts and displays taps in man grapples. Play Preseason Games in Season-Mode - Allows us to play in preseason yet still have stats kept, and use the Season Mode space for the other hacks we need (if I'm not mistaken). Injuries in ALL Modes - Toggles injuries for our set up playing our games as Preseason Games in Season Mode No Fumbles in End Zone - To prevent loss of stats. This may be adjusted if it's possible to hack the game to allow End Zone fumbles (cuz the feeling of forcing one is SO DELICIOUS) without losing the stats. Still waiting for an answer to that question. Keep Quarter Scores Intact if game goes to OT - If this hack is not included, then the scoreboard on the recap page does not accurately display the scores in each quarter, as you can see here in these epic (and only) OT contests from Season 1 involving @invader_star64 . Here vs @DT. http://www.pnw.puretecmo.com/main/dsp_recap.php?gID=40 and then here in an elimination game vs @Tick http://www.pnw.puretecmo.com/main/dsp_recap.php?gID=46 Track Fumbles - Shows each teams number of fumbles and fumbles lost in the recap. Track Time of Possession - Allows us to see Time of Possession for each team in the recap. We found a bug in this one because it uses space that we are using that online leagues do not, which causes BUF QB1 (John Elway in our Season 1 rom tests) to accumulate weird stats when not even playing any games, like lots of passes and 100% completion rate of those passes for very minimal yards and TDs and a TON of INTS. So the set commands will be a little different for our league. Will update when fixed. Recording Tackles - Tackle stats on recap and stat pages. Player 2 Conditions Fix - Fixes the display of attributes to match the conditions for P2. Other potential hacks are in the works, however none are meant to affect gameplay. Mostly they will be for additional stats. I'm hoping to be able to track some other things like JJs, CCs, picked plays, Yards after Catch, maybe individual player's fumble stats, JJ ints thrown and caught, Passes Defensed. Forced fumbles and fumble recoveries. Not sure how much we can fit and logistically do before this season, but hopefully we get a good deal of them. Also toying with the idea of randomizing the sound loop for each play. How this will work: First of all a lot of thanks and gratitude must go out to the Godfather @Knobbe and @davefmurray for their contributions in ensuring this site meets the needs of all our tecmo brethren. Much thanks also to all those who share how to hack this in such a way we can enjoy it in this fashion. @jstout has shared so much (and was always very helpful when I would bug him about stuff a couple years back) and @bruddog for basically being the shining beacon of hope that allows us to not only approach doing this, but get the support to troubleshoot and basically provide so much of his time and resources so generously. Much thanks and praises also to @brookstonfowler for his help with our CFT Phile. Getting Started with the Regular Season: The way we are able to do this is through using the rom created with aforementioned hacks on an Everdrive. We start by using the initial rom on all the Everdrives SD cards for week 1 and playing in preseason. I'm not sure if we need to set Team Control for each team to Man in the Season Game menu for our regular season games, but we will have to for the playoffs. After each game, a state is taken from the Everdrive and the ED's SD card is pulled. From the SD card, the state is saved to the CPU, then run through an Everdrive State Converter (linked below) which converts the state to a Nestopia like state which can then be uploaded to our Website (CFT Phile). Each Save State from Week 1 (in its Everdrive form I believe) is then merged with the other Save States from Week 1, one at a time (to the previously merged save state) using a tool Bruddog "whipped up" and the final version (Rom aka Save State) after all the Week 1 states are merged will be labeled as our Week 2 rom, and then copied to the ED's SD cards to be used for Week 2's games. This process will be used all the way through the completion of the regular season. Regular season stats and standings will be available to peruse on the rom and cartridge itself, as well as on the CFT Phile website, which will be updated with each game uploaded right after completion. There were some logistical concerns and flat out problems in our efforts for season 1 that will inform how we make season 2 and beyond happen. Problem number 1 was that we were unable to get the merges to work properly and consistently during the first season and the reasons included a lack of familiarity with best practices for making saves visible on the SD card and then trying to make a lot of this stuff work without allowing enough time to test it out before Game Day. Luckily we were able to manage to get the saves to show on the SD card using the knowledge we had (basically, after saving the state with a Select and Start button push, the state saved would not actually be saved on the SD card itself until a different rom was loaded). The end result was that we essentially played every game in season 1 with the same rom, but for each game, the rom's name was changed to include the week number and teams involved in order to ensure each file was named to clearly describe what it held. I also used a protocol for saving and converting these states for upload that included the creation of file folders for each week and game, and in each game's folder was an extra folder for the actual converted to nestopia state format since the names of both pre and post converted states were identical. Long story short, I was creating a lot of the folders while also going forward with the conversions and uploads and there was a lot of wait time for everyone else before the next set of games could be played. My plan to improve the logistics include having all the folders created for each week before hand, as well as to have extra SD cards so that when, for instance, the first 3 or 4 games of a given week are played, those SD cards can be pulled from the Everdrives and be replaced with other SD cards that have the rom for the rest of that week's games on them while the work to convert, upload and merge is being done. I'll also try to incorporate more help from guys there so it doesn't have to be just me doing the file work. @invader_star64 helped out a lot last season, and I think we can get a crack team to make it as efficient as possible and minimizing wait times between weeks. Everdrive State Converter - Converts Everdrive state to one that matches Nestopia states and thus can be read and uploaded to our Phile. Merge Tool - I don't have a link for this but we use it to be able to carry conditions and injuries over from week to week as well as be able to see the complete season stats with the Rom on the Everdrive in the NES itself. PLAYOFFS??!?!? - For the playoffs, the final rom save after all the final week's mergers are done will be hacked to put the teams in their respective places in the Playoff Bracket that Tecmo Super Bowl console seasons utilize. I saw this in action yesterday and about flipped my lid. In this case the Team Control in Season Game menu needs to have all the playoff teams set to Man. Once this rom is loaded, no changes need to be added to it. The two potential logistical issues I foresee and want to get in front of are: 1. How can we ensure that we are able to get a state that we can upload from the end of each playoff game? and 1A. If we do pull the SD card to convert and upload the playoff save state after each playoff game, how can we do this without making the wait in between games too long? I know there is a way to create files on the Everdrive that can serve as placeholders (and using efficient nomenclature) for save states so that one can choose which file on the SD Card to save the current SRAM to. I'm hesitant to trust this method without ensuring we have a good save to upload before moving on to the next playoff game. I guess my thinking is we can save that SRAM to the file and pull it out quick, copy it to another SD card and use the next SD card for the next game while we work on converting and uploading the state for the just completed playoff game. (Having the actual SD card not being used by the current playoff game being played will make it easier to pop the card (in its Everdrive) in to the NES and "push" the save to the SD card, using the methodology from season 1. I apologize for this last bit of rambling (stream of consciousness) We will work it out.

  2. @~Tailback King~ I thought I might get a reaction out of you for that. Of course Johnny Johnson would be the headliner. We here in the CFT matriculate back and forth from shock to awe as we ponder seeing Johnny Johnson in the hands of his true spirit animal savant, The Tailback King, docked in his #39 regalia, and sporting an offensive line upgrade from the sieve that was the PHX OL to the one, the only HOGS. Not to mention the Lonnie and Mac show holding down the defense while Johnny shoves down our eyeholes the image of the stats that won't be so hidden come July 28th! Johnny played football for San Jose State, but when some basketball players walked out saying they wouldn't play for their coach cuz of abusive treatment, Johnny played basketball too. In 1993, his first with the JETS, his teammates voted him team MVP, the same team that added Boomer Esiason that year. He had 67 catches! In order to catch Johnny's true essence, you have to take the performances in. Seeing is believing. I think my man Rudy might have more to add....
  3. This is me for the last month or so... Other things in the works for this monumental day... I bought a ten pack of replacement NES Controller parts so's the buttons and D Pad are PRECISE and RESPONSIVE! I've been picking up Sony Trinitrons 2x27 in and 2x36 in ones through FB Marketplace and craigslist, since they have excellent screens and are CRTs that take component input because... The plan is also to benefit from modding (at least 2, perhaps 3) NES's to output RGB and component (instead of the composite out the front loading ones have) and having these up the display game for our season. The first 36 incher might not make it to game day, probably won't at least, as it's picture isn't the greatest. It is a fucking beast to move...lol. We gonna have a keg of Mac n Jack's thanks to Manyo (cups will be about 10 to 15 bux ) probably be available by the night before the tourney. Manyo's also asked to handle the soundtrack of the day, and I've had a few things I've wanted to make sure are on the playlist. We still need to figure out food (really at least 3 meals, I can handle the breakfast part for anyone staying the night) so lunch and dinner we can come up with a plan where we don't have owners randomly leaving to get food then waiting for them to return to play their next game. We do have our season schedule posted. All of the games scheduled are assigned to one of the 4 stations, with intent to give everyone exposure on the main stream station, but also we'll have the ability to go multiple games at a time if the other games warrant it, all 4 at a time if need be. And there's still so much more!
  4. Dang, I been waiting to post for this day for a minute... We are currently at 39 days left until the 2nd season of CFT kicks off, Season 2 really being the AWAKENING of that Tecmo Season Spirit...Managing to accomplish what season 1 could only suggest... 15 owners...drafted 15 teams... all under a salary cap...playing a 10 game season...with injuries and conditions functioning just like in season mode...all O Linemen and Defensive players locked into their OG Rom position alignment...all stats kept up to date on 4 different consoles... and our website...the pinnacle of the season coming with BEST of THE BEST, top 12 teams filling in the Tecmo Super Bowl Bracket...the PLAYOFFS going down 1 at a time... all live streamed...and today marks 39 days until this historic season kicks off early on July 28th. 39 is a special number around these here parts... but more on that specialness later... Let's showcase the #39s of the Tecmo Super Bowl rosters...with a special something something for that special #39... First off, we got our guys that have never been drafted in CFT as of yet. Better luck next year to... Neither Maxie Padz nor D Thompson had what it takes to get drafted in the first 2 seasons of CFT... and neither did this guy... but this guy also deserves some spotlight... You wanna know who that is??? Rocking the Katana and reppin for his Lions??? Well it's none other than... Ray Crockett, or as I like to refer to him... Crockett of... I swear @Tick should have drafted the Lions DBs just so he could name his team Crockett and Tuggz... Now there is one #39 who was drafted in season 1 but will not be on the CFT gridiron for season 2... That's... That's right. Carl Mother Effin Lee! He and Joey Browner played for Tick in season 1. Now there's a slew of guys who are 39s that will be playing in CFT for the first time in season 2. For @Polish Rifle , Mike (don't call me Mark) Prior For @invader_star64 we have Harry and the Hamiltons and for @fairfensheeding we have Marvelous Marvin Allen Man we got some sweet pics today... And we ain't done yet... There's one more, kinda special number 39 that I have yet to showcase. You guessed it... It's a Running Back. Yeah Yeah, he played for a handful of teams but it's his time with one team that really stands out. This was the only picture on the interwebs that showed his jersey with name and number... Man, I just found that on EBay. A hundred and sixty bucks plus shipping and that sweet sweet #39 could be all mine... Here's an actual pic of the man, who has shared the backfield with the likes of John Stephens, Emmitt Smith, and Gaston Green. 39 Days! Can't WAIT!!!
  5. 40 DAYS TIL CFT 2!!! ONLY 40 LEFT! We got some strong hair game in this one, even if only 1 out of the 5 TSB players is actually gonna grace the field for season 2. From Season 1, this guy roamed the secondary with Eric McMillan for @invader_star64's Seahawks. In season 2, this is one guy that's gonna get some play for @boogiewithstu and his hair game, while not voluminous... it's strong. Check the other avail pics from his playing days to peep the evidence. Couple of guys that haven't gotten any CFT love as of yet include And then there's one of my favorite players of all time. A stud in the USFL and then a stud in the NFL. And that hair... Here's 4 of his just for sharing's sake.

    Oaks, PA - 6/23/2018 - Tecmo Philly

    I could see you doing this Chaos...
  7. Happy Father's Day to all you daddy'os out there. Currently there are 41 days left until CFT season 2 kicks off. We have 4 guys to highlight today. None of the 4 have played on the CFT gridiron as of yet, and only 2 of them were drafted for our upcoming season 2 on July 28. The first guy here I saw make an amazing catch at the goal line from his backup quarterback Jim McMahon... because Randall aka QB Eagles went down and went down hard in game 1 of 1991 for new Eagles head coach Rich Kotite. Another 41 is a toy that's never been taken out of the CFT draft closet as of yet. This pic on his card made me laugh... Here's... For season 2, this guy finally had his RB mate's services selected (and perhaps his own blocking as well). Drafted in the first round of the CFT season 2 draft by @TheProfessor it's... and finally, also making his first appearance on a CFT field this July, drafted by @DT. to hold down the back end for his CFT 2 squad, it's...
  8. 6 weeks baby! Today's name oughtta be Ronnie Warren... but alas we got 4 guys who are either a Ronnie or a Warren... Unfortunately 3 of our 4 Tecmo Vets haven't ever been drafted in the CFT, and one is an absolute icon, and another is an absolute stud in his own right... both not so Shy Ronnie's. The first Warren is the RB from the Steelers... but the man who has been drafted is about to play in his 2nd season in CFT. In year one, he was drafted by @XtraLargent and this year, @SirTed has him in line to tote the rock for his Both Terry and Tez know how many days left until CFT 2. Do you?!?!?
  9. 2 miles is about right when you got the double donkeyness going on... amirite? @XtraLargent @~Tailback King~
  10. Truer words never spoken...
  11. 43 days until CFT Season 2. We've got some big things in store for everybody participating and watching. @invader_star64 was over last night and we went over some logistical and technological issues before we got to throw down on the CFT gridiron for some preseason action, and he was able to put this guy to use... That's right, Cleveland Gary will be suiting up for Vader's Seahawks in Season 2. This guy I couldn't find a pic with his number 43 on him, but he will be suiting up for @Tick's Bengals in Season 2 after sitting out season 1, it's... Tracy Johnson! Sadly, the next 2 guys have not been selected as of yet in CFT drafts, but they both are a part of some standout tandems that it's only a matter of time before someone does draft them. That Bill Jones card might be a direct lineage to why the Tecmo programmers gave him a 38rec. He's a nice Tommie Agee type FB that compliments Okoye if one puts Word at TE. And yeah, I heard rumblings that the 49er Secondary was on someone's short list, but alas, like my Giants RB fixation, it was not to be for season 2. Finally, when a few weeks ago there was all this hullaballoo over The real answer, as @~Tailback King~ will tell you, as he has an affinity for Cardinals players from 1990 that also ended up on the JETS later in their career... The real answer to the Yanny Laurel question is... Cue the TBK response where he espouses on the dominance that is Lonnie YOUNG!
  12. Today is a fun one. We got 44 days left til CFT season 2, Garage Days re-revisited. There's 8 number 44's highlighted today, and I like a lot of them, and 4 plus 4 is 8.... 44 is associated with power in my book. I also had fun watching some 1991 action on YouTube last night. Got a couple great TSB Trivia questions out of it. And saw that the 1991 Seahawks employed a WR by the name of Louis Clark. It's too bad his first name isn't Lewis, but that's kind of how #Lewis works... The 1st player highlighted today is the only one that has yet to be drafted by a CFT owner through 2 seasons. Martin... . Noooo, not that Martin. DAMN GINA! Martin Bayless, the hitter of the Chargers 4 DBs in Tecmo, with 56hp. Unfortunately for Bayless, he shares a last name with a stupid Skip, and he has yet to be picked up through the desire for a CFT owner to man up Gil Byrd... Now for the guys who played season 1 but will be sitting out Season 2... Known for carrying the water for OJ Anderson and David Meggett, this Maurice played for @SirTed in season 1 and I was full on eyeing this NYG Tandem of RBs for season 2, but alas it wasn't meant to be... this year. And then there's this guy "Me and Lorenzo, rolling in the Benzo..." This guy toted the rock for @boogiewithstu in season 1... well really he didn't since he got more yards receiving than rushing last year. In the future we'll be able to track fumbles by player and we can see the real impact of that 19bc att... Now the studs... This guy has always been one of my favorites. He's the man in the Grogan challenges (as a receiver out of the backfield), and the man in those IND NE battles I love where usually I get the Pats. But I just learned today that he also is (was really, RIP) the father of the French Open runner up this year. The fact that @~Tailback King~ knows this man's true talents (regardless of TSB MS rating) only strengthens the Tecmo bond we have always had as Tecmo Bros. John Stephens was drafted by @fairfensheeding in Season 2 after sitting out Season 1 Another guy playing in CFT for the first time in season 2, this is the other 44ms backup on the Rams RB group. Gaston Green will be available for @invader_star64 in season 2. This guy not such a stud in TSB but looks like a hitter. Playing for @SirTed in Season 2 after going undrafted in season 1... Now the final 2. A couple of hard hitters who are also a couple of my faves. FIrst up, the guy who led the AFC in Rushing TDs for Cascadia's own Seattle Seahawks. This load of a man will be toting the rock for Sir Ted after playing for @XtraLargent and his Raiders in Season 1. And finally, my man, the guy who made clutch play after clutch play in rushing, returning, but TBH receiving is where his clutchness came about in my season 1 run to the championship... The Wrath MAN. @DT. is the lucky summamma who gets the talented Mr. Rathman doing some durrty work for his Durrty Birds in Season 2.
  13. Well now we are 45 days away from CFT 2 kickoff, and 45 has a lot of entries... No Dotards included. First with the undrafted and unselected... The only pic I could find of Hunter in a Colts Jersey (could see him in Kentucky and Patriots tho), involves him blocking for Run Dick Run. Apropos I suppose. Undrafted this season, but played for @invader_star64 in season 1 is... Now for season 2, this guy will be making is CFT Debut. Donning the Honolulu Blue for you know who @TheProfessor is non other than... For the longest time I thought Manny recovered the onsides kick for the Cowboys after their 1st TD vs the undefeated Redskins in week 13 of 1991, but I recently found that vid on youtube and Manny is just the most prominent guy signalling Dallas ball on the screen (sorry Darrick Brownlow) . I will be watching that epic match tonight, bettah belee dat. Now for the 45s that can't help but get drafted onto CFT squads, year after year... First up, localites and Cascadia citizenry usually recall this guy as the receiver of karma from Tulsa Steve Largent, receiving his just desserts in spectacular fashion, Largent's favorite play of his NFL career, but in TSB, this guy will be donning the silver and black for @XtraLargent's Raiders after playing for @DT.'s Falcons in Season 1. I really don't know what to make of that... tbh. Harden playing for XtraLargent. The Tecmo Gods will have their say, one way or another, that's for sure. Also playing in his 2nd consecutive season, after playin for @Tick's Bengals in season 1, he is taking his talents to the drafted by @fairfensheeding in season 2... And finally, this guy didn't play season 1 but the whole league shuddered when he was picked by @invader_star64 in Season 2 Draft's 1st round...
  14. 45 post is on the way TBK
  15. This is something I enjoy about our smaller tourneys up here in the PNW, although for the most part we have the same core of guys, but every so often someone new shows up or someone old pops out of the woodwork. The time you get together beyond actually playing is almost as good as the battlin'. Catching up, playing other shit, or just talkin tecmo and life. Live Tecmo is the best. Tourneys are the shiznit. Live seasons... They take too long right? Although there's something for that issue...
  16. 46 DAYS UNTIL CFT 2!!!! Couple of BIGG NAMES HEAH! Let's start with the scrubs... These 2 guys haven't seen the CFT gridiron and won't in 2018. BTW Peep that sick Smokey set of Cards for the Chargers. For my this guy will be on the CFT gridiron for the first time come July 28 And finally, the 2 guys who OWN the number 46 in tecmo. Both are studs. First, for @TheProfessor we have a TE extraordinaire, suiting up for the CFT 2 , it's... before he switched numbers to 85. And for who else, @~Tailback King~ The Yanny to Lonnie's Laurel... Cue up some Too Short, Mack Attack cuz his secondary got Cedric Mack and Tommy MAC!
  17. haha I miss you Hank! You're the best!

    Atlanta, GA - 6/8/2018 - Tecmo Atlanta

    Well Congrats @suicideking81 2nd place is nothing to scoff at either. The Tecmo Gods always have their say regardless, I can attest to that.
  19. We are now 47 days away from CFT's Season 2. Last season Played for Tick and his Bengals, but in season 2... undrafted. Bad, bad, Leroy Irvin...Never found a squad in either season thus far, perhaps in season 2. @~Tailback King~ will be employing the other Mack Attack, Cedric that is in season 2. @gripsmoke will have Greg Jackson at his disposal in season 2 for his 49ers. And I will have Kirby Jackson patrolling the airways at DB2 for my
