    My Kid's 1st Birthday Party

    Because I don't see any evidence that one year olds like anything other than, like, things to throw on the floor or bouncy balls or breasts for sucklin', my wife let me plan the kid's first birthday. So I went Tecmo themed. Just thought I throw this stuff in here for your enjoyment. The invites:

    I'm going to break precedent here and reveal that yes, for the 5th year running, Flo was the #1 overall seed. Good luck Group 26! In unrelated news, we're happy to report that there will be an ESPN presence at this tournament. As of now, they're sending only a writer, but hopefully the mothership will course-correct and send a camera crew. Who wouldn't want to see Mort perform cunnilingus on a cartridge again?

    Part 1 Atlanta Prime has a huge dick on his team, not the DB, Phil Simms is a dick. Buffalo I'd love to see Hoff air it out Krieg to Sanders every play. No runs. Chicago Fantastic offense and a decent defense, but Majik always chokes. Cincinnati Bo Jackson and Gault: The name of the game is SPEED! Keanu Reeves style. Cleveland This is the first time Lorenzo White got drafted in the second round. Dallas I heard QB Browns' daughter has some porno flicks. By 'heard', I mean 'watched.' Denver Derrick Thomas will be a huge disappointment. Much like Ted's seasons. Detroit regulator's back. Missing draft times, game deadlines. Still will win it all. Green Bay Everett and Thurman: An offense straight outta hell. Defense? LOL. Houston Elway is the key. Will Stall use him correctly? Or bench him for Reich? Indianapolis L.T. and Teste Lobbin' bombs to Sir Al Toon. Fun team to play with. Kansas City coconuts is back, and he joined my division. No halftime skips here! Miami Picked my beloved Bob Nelson. Will probably never control him. Minnesota This team is OK. No great weaknesses or strengths. 8-8 sounds right.

    George aka the People's Champ- My intro to this dude was him coming up to me and Lou barely holding onto THREE mixed drinks in shoddy plastic cups without any segue telling us "HEY, I saw a BITCH that looked like MARINO." It didn't take much longer for me and Lou to realize a new Madison Legend had been born. I didn't realize he was in my group until my first game is underway and I'm taking the kickoff back with Barry Sanders and I hear a familiar voice behind me exclaim "HEY! WHERE'S MEL GRAY!? You can't put BARRY at kick return man... you're gonna USE UP HIS JUICE!!" I'll never forget that voice. I'll never forget this tourney!

    It's difficult to even begin to describe how much fun I had at my first ever Tecmo Madison tournament. A huge thanks to all of those involved! Without a doubt, my absolute favorite thing about any live Tecmo tourney is that pretty much every single competitor is there to have fun and is a good sport no matter the outcome. This makes for a full day of nothing but smiles and pure fun. This picture pretty much sums it up - I was playing against JimSocks for the last spot in the field of 64 and the pic was snapped as I hit a FG off the post and in for a 3 point win in DOUBLE OVERTIME! Take a look at JimSock's face - BIG OL' SMILE!! It isn't possible for someone to be a better sport than Jim right there. That's live Tecmo at its best. Jim you and your crew were fantastic the entire time. Thanks for helping remind me just how much fun playing this game live can be!

    Well let's see, I worked 14 hours yesterday without eating cause the market was down 600 points, I didn't get home from eating for the first time till 11:30 pm. Had to be back at 8 am. I'm now registered. So everyone can relax. Yesterday was the worst possible day to have anything tecmo related. Not all of us sit at home and play on the Internet. It's done now, and I have time every night this week.

    +1 Allow me to elaborate. We do our best, guys. There are a lot of tournaments. We can't upload them all. We have to use our judgment on which tournaments we enter, based on our experience with those tournaments, the number of players, the talent of the field, and expected crossover between the players in that field and the players in our field. As Dave mentioned, even if documented really well (which many are not) and sent to us promptly (which many are not), it's not easy to enter them into our site. It takes time. We're all busy people, so we don't get to them all. We prioritize. We know who did well in all of the tournaments this year (like, say, Nebraska), and we'll try to take that into account with seeding, to the degree it's feasible. The person who wins #TecmoXII will not win it because of how he was seeded. He'll win it because he was the best player in the room that day, as Derek was last year.

    Glad to read that people are enjoying watching the games this season for the Patriots as I had fun playing them. Second Super Bowl I've lost on the last play. Like Manyo said it wasn't i think either of our best games but neither team relented. Where do I start with this season? So many fun memories (games of the year vs Reg.) I enjoy just getting back to what Tecmo should be about. Exciting games, epic battles, Cinderella stories, the works. Kinda feels like last day of school and you've hung out with all your friends and you'll miss them (Thurmal) but at the same time you're a grade higher and get to learn with new people (Vinny, Lott etc.) I really wanted to get one for Andre Waters! Not sure if he's ever won it all but it's fun getting this far with so much challenge in front of you and succeeding. Underdogs! We'rethe 6th seed, relative HSTL playoff newbies playing for keeps but with house money feeling. I hope to make a TecCenter Top Ten Plays of Season 32 for New England and put em all together to store for awhile. Gonna need some help with that project. Great season 32 and looking forward to an even greater challenge in season 33 with most teams being solid and everything coming down to the last minute in each and every game. Cheers to Tecmo and have a Happy 4th of July!

    Madison Madness!

    Hey everyone, after talking to a few peeps figuring out logistics, I'm letting y'all know there will be Madison Madness this year, and I have volunteered to run it. The basics The bracket will consist of the Sweet 16 Entry is free, one entry per person A URL to fill out a bracket will be announced and displayed once the bracket is confirmed and I've updated the settings. You will be required to provide some information, probably your tecmo name / email address to register and fill in Only one bracket per registrant you fucking cheaters Once the Sweet 16 starts, the website will lock new entries and convert into a scoreboard style website. As games are played and winners advance, I will update the website to indicate the advancements, and the scoreboard will also update. After the final game, the scoreboard will show who won the bracket, and that person will win some swag Swag to be provided by nice people donating to the cause. The URL will be mobile-friendly for the most part, as long as you have a non-shitty phone. iPhones, Androids, maybe even Windows phone who knows. Blackberrys and flip phones can GTFO. Find a laptop or borrow someone else's phone. You may not borrow my phone. The URL will not be announced until the Sweet 16 is announced, so don't ask me for it ahead of time. Edit 1: You will probably need to be AT the event when the tournament is over to collect the prize. Shipping the prize probably won't happen. Edit 2: Due to logistics and my programming laziness, you will not be able to fill out the winner's bracket and loser's bracket simultaneously. You must fill out the winner's bracket, then you can click a button to go to the loser's bracket. You will not be able to go back to the winner's bracket after pushing the button. Ditto with not being able to edit the loser's bracket once you push the button to pick the champion.

    Here they are....the three #1 seeds of the tournament. Some may see these as obvious and others may disagree. Either way, these guys should be among the favorites. Agree? Disagree?

    Damn, Can you believe we're back already?! Episode 2 features Ryan Stewart, Madison announcer extraordinaire! Thanks for the positive feedback from the first episode. IMO, this episode was even more fun to put together, probably because I was so much less nervous about every step in the process, and despite our different personalities, I think Ryan and I vibed pretty well on the pod. So check it out, enjoy and let me know what you think. And of course, hit me up to record. It's super fun just to talk Tecmo, right? That's all we're really doing. Thanks guys, -SirTed >https://soundcloud.com/edward-beresford-949627369/hidden-stats-ep-2-final

    Kamp is new MIA owner

    Hey guys, over the last month I've been suffering from serious tecmo burn out. I've been chatting with guys about this for some time. Its come to the point where I have no motivation to play and the excitement and fun isnt there like it used to be for me. Since I started last October i've probably played more online games then most with all the TPC games (~600) and then eventually leagues. I've been full go with all the leagues doing videos, writeups, and all the games so I think I just need a break for a while to re-charge the batteries. I knew Kamp was next on the list and from chatting with him on AIM I knew he was excited about this season's format but would be stuck on wait list. Since this format may not happen again, i figured it would be best to step down now since im feeling this way and let him take my spot. The wait list isnt as daunting as it used to be so I asked Gats to put me at the end of the list and hopefully i'll be rejuvenated by the time my name gets called again.

    It went so amazing that I am still in awe of how efficient you guys where at getting games in. I plan to bring this back next year. Most likely sat Sept 14th As I announced as long as things are going well I will put in 1000 to the prize pool. Entries will be 100 unless you won the players championship or madison 5-15. For those few people entry will be 150. A max of 24 so I can have it a dmen cause Phil was just so awesome hosting us. I will make an official announcement this winter.

    File Name: TecmoBowl.org Presents: Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 File Submitter: Knobbe File Submitted: 09 Sep 2015 File Category: NFL By Year Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 24 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2016. This site's 9th yearly iteration updates Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads. Additionally, you can now check the defensive conditions of your players. Playable on multiple platforms and operating systems via NES emulation software, Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 brings Nintendo's bone-crunching classic to today's computers and handheld devices. Will offenses fear Richard Sherman like they feared Ronnie Lott? Who is the more deadly play-caller: Aaron Rodgers or Dan Marino? Will Marshawn Lynch live up to the hype? Loaded into an NES Emulator, Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 will make legends for the next 23 years. Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 Table of Contents A. How This Works B. How To Play - PC/Mac C.

    Personal highlights: LPGE as a whole was ridiculous and huge. Meeting new guys and seeing my brothers in Tecmo again after Madison. Cosplayers. Playing SFII in a VirtualBoy vs Regulator. Free Play Barcade on Friday night. Finding an In N Out and sharing Reg's, Ones' and Gats' first Double Double Animal Style with them. Introducing Gats to Mexican food. This meat is so good it doesn't even need ranch! Witnessing a Gats bowel movement so foul that I had to go the hotel lobby for 10 minutes. Game 1 of the finals had a ridiculous ending. Wow. This is why I do what I do. Legit esports moment there. Gatsisms are now a thing. This dude is so innocent it is hilarious. I love that he speaks his mind with no perceived judgement. It is awesome. True honesty. Receiving texts from Mort, Lou, JimSocks & Diaz all talking shiz and Mort dancing in a panther suit head. Great. Freaking. Weekend. Love you guys. Love each other. Lift your fellow man up.

    Annnnnd We're back. Sorry it's been forever. Kids. Holidays. You know the deal. And you might be wondering "Wait, episode 4? What the hell happened to Episode 3?" Well, we'll get that out, but I experienced some technical problems with it, as well as just conducting a shithouse interview, so I may have to get a re-do on that one. So for now, you're stuck with this (Di)Azhole. Also, I've kinda switched the way that I record the pod, which has made it much, much easier to record with any interested parties (please contact the HYPE offices if that's you) but has made editing a lot more difficult, specifically the audio levels between myself and the other "guest" or whatever. So, I'm really quiet at times. Sorry if we blow out your ears. I figured it out for the future, though, so I'll think we'll be good going forward. Anyway. Enjoy! Good luck Everyone in Season 35!

    New Site Preview!

    Thanks all, will have more info shortly. Grip and brooks I will add you to the test group - 4 testers will be enough for now. I want to clean a few last things up then will send out the test link to the group. Will see what I can do diaz. Moe - as of now the plan is for this to be a standalone, however, with a few small exceptions, I'm using the database from dynastyphile as is and have not monkeyed with the back end / stat extraction / rom build as that shit's honestly over my head. I'm not at that level of programming. So, could perhaps consider doing some sort of bolt on at some future date for DF. Though gotta get this one up and working first. Here's a few more shots. One of the most fun things I worked on was a charting component. There's some more fun stuff in here, though don't want to give it all away.

    AFC Central- Looks like I have to go with the front runner to win the division here. Not my typical draft team, but should be good enough to capture the division. Stall could possibly make a last second push to make things interesting. Browns 10-6 AFC East- Very good battle for 1st in this division with two top skill level guys in Daboys, and Diaz. Offense is pretty sick for the Colts, and defense should be good enough for this team to contend for the SB. Diaz edges Daboys out to capture the East. Colts 11-5 AFC West- Looks like a no brainer that GoNick takes this division down running away with it. Been a lot of complaining about his JJ offense, but he can win in many ways with his skill level. Grip seems to me to be having a disappointing season as of now. I look for him to string some big wins together down the stretch and try to compete for a wildcard. Seattle 13-3 Wild cards- Daboys and his Patriots will lock one of them up, and the other wildcard should be Grip's Raiders, and Stall's Oilers. I am going to have to pick Patriots 10-6, Oilers 9-7, and Raiders 9-7 NFC Central- The bears look to be rolling along for the division title, but do not count out the 3 time Champion Lions. Toolie will for sure push Dukesta to the very end and squeak out the division in the final 2 weeks of the season. Lions 11-5 NFC East- Jfag and the Eagles seem to be running away with this division on the strength of Bad Moon Rison, and defensive stud DT. Eagles 10-6 Nfc West- Very strong division with 3 very good players in Nos, Moe, and Bruddog, and an improving Ryan to make for a very sick division. Nos looks to be easing himself ahead to be the favorite to win the division with Moe on his heels down the stretch I am sure. I am going with Atlanta 13-3 Wild cards- Looks like Nos and Dukesta will get 2 of the wild cards for sure, and Ryan to get the last and final #6 spot to round out the playoff teams. Wild cards will be Saints 12-4 , Bears 11-5, and Rams 9-7 PLAYOFFS AFC- 1st round #3 Browns vs #6 Raiders---> Browns 21-17 #4 Patriots vs #5 Oilers ----> Patriots 24-17 2nd Round #1 Seattle vs #5 Oilers ----> Seattle 24-14 #2 Colts vs #3 Browns ----> Colts 21-17 AFC CHAMPIONSHIP #1 Seattle vs #2 Colts - Let the punches go in this one . Should be a fun one to watch. To be the JJ or not to be, that is the question! I do not see Colts having enough defense to stop this. Seattle wins 24-14. NFC 1st round #3 Eagles vs #6 Rams ----> Eagles 20-14 #4 Saints vs #5 Bears ----> Saints 28-14 2nd round #1 Atlanta vs #4 Saints ----> Saints 20-14 #2 Lions vs #3 Eagles ----> Lions 24-17 NFC CHAMPIOSHIP- QB EAGLES......need I say more? Lions win 24-14 SUPER BOWL I am going to go with the upset and pick against QB Eagles here. Should be a great game but see Seattle pulling it out of their ass somehow in overtime 24-21. SEATTLE HSTL CHAMPIONS

    Ryarnac11p The Magnificent Back in Action! So I know, I know, it was over a week but we are trying to keep pace with the rest on Online Tecmo here....... Ba doom Cheee. This Month and has seen a rash of Online Tecmo Retirements although hard for us who remain chugging along its important to remember, everyone has some times where real life comes into to play and the best thing to do is step away for a bit, I have been there. Lets wish each of these guys well wishes and appreciation for all they have done. I have the great honor to call all of them friends and have shared great experiences with each one of them live and in person which is the best way this little tecmo hobby comes full circle. Thank You Guys; You all are some true legendary players and people. I present to you Diaz and the Retirement Party Band! Diaz is the odd man out not retired, but come on his face on that suit just makes you smile and not sure if there is a better front man or better friend a guy could have! Enough sappy stuff on to the predictions Answer: The 2016 Presidential Election & the WTF NFC Central Question: Name 2 races that are to close to call This division has been a bloodbath all season and the out of division games aren't helping literally any of the four could win the division, Daboy, Player, Duke and Stall all have the skills to pull it off and as the season winds down its gonna come down to the wire! Ryarnac11p The Magnificent sees The Saints lead by the veteran Daboy winning the division and being the only team in the NFC Central to make the playoffs as the rest pummel each other out of playoff contention. but like the election who really knows? Answer: Ben Carson, Tube, Kamphuna Question: Name a Doc, a Sock, and a Lock The NFC East is all but wrapped up by the Dynamic Minnesota Vikings at 9-3 on the season and have a 112 point differential the outcome of this division seems decided, Ryarnac11p The Magnificent also predicts that Kamp is the #1 seed in the NFC when the dust settles. Now some seriously slim % outcomes Baltimore at 6-6 could make a serious run and it is possible for the colts to still win this division but some serious things have to happen. #1 Colts would have to win out on the season including a win over the Vikings week 16. # 2 Vikings lose 3 of their last 4 games.#notlikely, #wtfcoltsdreamland, #wishfulthinking Last 2 predictions on the NFC East Raiders finish .500 or better, and the Bears get the #1 pick in 1981 Answer: Super Bowl Question: What do you find in Super Mans Bathroom The AFC West is seemly won already by the powerful K.C. Chiefs with Coach Chiefsjr, Ryarnac11p The Magnificent is a Championship appearance in the making. This division has an outside chance of going a different direction but much like the NFC East to much has to happen. This division is full of old school Veterans that are each expert game managers I see K.C being the only team going to the dance this year. KC 12-4, BUF 8-8 , CLE 7-9, PIT 7-9 will be the end of the year standings. One last thing coming through: Ryarnac11p The Magnificent sees DT in Dallas finishing a impressive 9-7 and becoming a force in Dallas. This WTF Newcomer has really turned the tide for the Cowboys and his Live Tourney Championship ways will payoff and show in years to come Until Next Time!

    1972 Rooks Preview: QBs

    HSRL 1972 QBs 1972 Vets Update: Retired: Bart Starr (13/56/69), Sonny Jurgensen (13/50/63), Earl Morrall (19/44/44), Aged: Daryle Lamonica (25/50/50-->19/44/44), Len Dawson (13/56/63-->6/50/56), Bill Kilmer (19/44/50-->13/38/44), John "Hubba" Hadl (19/44/44-->13/38/38) Gained: Ken Anderson (19/44/56-->19/50/63), Ken Stabler (6/81/44-->???) This offseason finds Starr and Jurgensen, two of the league's better QBs the past two seasons, having sailed off into the Far West, RETIRED-----pour out some liquor for 'em...... A few others AGED, and in the process took big hits in value, guys like Lamonica and Dawson were both 1st round picks last season... but Lamonica at least is gonna drop way down the boards in '72, just another 19/44/44 now..... Only a few GAINED, such as Anderson and Stabler (?), but not sure their value rises a bunch w/o ms-bumps..... So, let's restock the position, right? with some Grade A rooks? NOPE. Not this class... with only one QB coming in greater than 44pc, all of them at 13ms, and a few stray bop-gun QBs with 50ps / low pc, there's nothing to cross your fingers for in this basket of eggz..... in fact, the most interesting thing about these duds is that the ones with anything remotely significant in their attribute lines NEVER EVEN THREW AN NFL PASS in real life. [i would like to note one possible omission, however, in the form of Brian Sipe, who was drafted in 1972 and was a pretty good QB, by far the best of that class... but perhaps he comes another season down the line?..... toolie/WTFR geeks???] QB Jim Fassell (13ms/44ps/50pc) My guess is that whomever was doing the rookie lines for this WTF:Retro draft must have looked around and figured... "dafuq? Wait, Jim Fassel... I recognize that name." Or else they were a Giants fan, a team Fassel head-coached from 1997-2003 with a mixed-bag of results, perennially on the hot seat as I recall then saving his ass with a big victory or playoff bid at all the right times... also known for a ballsy "playoff guarantee" late in the 2000 season, eventually leading the Giants to the Super Bowl that year, where the Ravens defense proceeded to kick their ass... but still, good on him. As a player, though? Not a single NFL pass thrown, altho he was drafted by the Bears in the 7th Round... hence, no football card photo above. He did, however, play for the WFL's Hawaiians, and actually threw the last pass in WFL history, just before it folded...... Fassel's final stat lines for the Hawaiians? 16/39, 205yds, 0 Tds, 4 INTs. Jim Fassel's spirit appreciates this opportunity he is getting here in HSRL, and he vows to make the most of it. QB John Reeves Reaves (13ms/38ps/44pc) There are a few interesting things to note on Reeves. First, his name is actually spelled REAVES, not Reeves. Okay, another cool thing is that in our USFL league, first we have his name spelled correctly, and second he is a 13/69/50 QB, which are some fun atts to play with sometimes. While with the real-life Bandits, he chukked for 4,000+ passing yds twice. In the NFL, though? Journey-man QB, extraordinaire... he bounced around a handful of places, ending with a bit less than 4,000 total passing yds for his NFL career over 9 sporadic seasons, even playing one season for the Bucs in '87 at the age of 37 after the USFL dissolved. Last interesting thing to note is that he is Lane Kiffin's father-in-law, via marriage to his daughter..... now, my grandfather's twin sister married Monte Kiffin Sr., who begat Monte Kiffin the defensive genius, who begat Lane Kiffin, who married Reaves's daughter, so..... whoa, cool! QB James Hamilton / Mike Franks (13ms50ps/31pc or 38pc) There is nothing on these guys. No Pro Football Reference page, no passes thrown in the NFL... nothing. Hamilton does have a 50/50 roll though to get to 38pc, which would get him that much closer to becoming a poor man's Ken O'Brien... a tecmo player can dream, can't he? Wait, no they can't. Bru says so. The rest of the QBs are chukka material, at best! QB Jerry TaGGe (13ms/38ps/38pc) or (13/31/44) Legendary Nebraska QB, along with off. coordinator Tom Osborne he helped the Huskers win two national championships in 1971 and 1972. Drafted in the 1st round, 11th overall, by his hometown Packers (he sold concessions at Lambeau Field as a teenager), he didn't amount to much in the NFL. But great 'stache! QB Pat Sullivan (13ms/44ps/38pc) or (13/38/44) Smolderin' Sullivan! QB Dean Carlson (13ms/38ps/38pc) No photo found! QB Van Brownson (13ms/31ps/31pc) Another solid Nebraska QB in the same class as Tagge, he was selected in the 8th round, but doesn't even have a PFR page. QB Don Bunce (13ms/38ps/38pc) or (13/38/44) Bunce! Never played in the NFL, actually... but became a helluva orthopedic surgeon, apparently. Also was team doctor for the Stanford football team for 10 years. QB Neil Graff (13ms/44ps/38pc) Behold, the only NFL quarterback born in the great state of South Dakota! Neil Graff, enshrined for all time in the South Dakota Sports Hall of Fame! Bounced around as an NFL backup for a spell, but alas..... no NFL passes thrown for Neil. Maybe next time, South Dakota! >https://youtu.be/4ab2pnlWkd4 >https://youtu.be/G5-p8hjsAVI

    The Patriots and Steelers kick off the 1971 HSRL playoffs in a matchup of 11-3 teams. Both teams enter as slight surprises but show their worthiness with a tremendous battle for a berth in the AFC Championship game. Since this is the playoffs, I decided to go with a full game over a highlight video. I removed some of the filler (play screen, substitution page, etc.) but did not remove any plays. This was a fun one Ted! >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcki546Mrio

    Ay caramba! what a divisional round of playoff games, all of them close and decided at the final gun... and this one as well, in a repeat of a great Week 1 matchup (BATTLES: Episode 1)... this time, hamburgler and his Vikings look to defend their S22 NFC title, bringing Okoye, Stevo Young, and a motley but beastly-effective crew of defenders to the battle to take on bruddog's 49ers, an up and down team all season looking to ride a good wave into the next round, captained by Phil Simms and a fine pair of pass snatchers (Sanders/Clark), and the killer "B's" on defense, Browner and Byrd. >https://youtu.be/FNTnMEp5ILQ

    Have I really been booted?

    well fuck me running, there he is..... I haven't hired your team away yet, so let's assume you've still got it unless I get complaints from league members, in which case I'd put it up for a vote.... really, disappearing for that long without posting is fairly unheard of, possibly grounds for boot itself considering you only have 2 games in, we'll see. suffice to say, you'll have a few demerits for missing deadlines in the consequences thread, and will be dangerously close to being booted anyway.... I'll figure all that out tomorrow..... if I was you I'd start getting those games in real quick this week. hot damn, this job never gets boring...... I recall Diaz asking me at Madison, well, what you gonna do during season as commish?.... I think I said, dunno, drop ROMs, I guess..... LOLZ
