It's been known for a while that Tecmo Super Bowl had some text in it relating to penalties in addition to unused "Sound 32" You might have missed, like I did back in 2009, that there was an actual set of penalty cut screens still in the game.
Today I stumbled across this and thanks to this handy spreadsheet, inserted them in place of the intro screen event to see them in action.

Scroll down to the note jstout added randomize week games. it starts off with JSR L_D8F7 AND #$0F
This is a routine to update the random numbers and then it constrains the result to be from 0x00 to 0x0F or 0 to 15 in decimal. Anyways we just need the end of the whole routine to randomize the games which is
JSR store_sram_checksum LDA #%11000000 STA PRG_RAM_PROTECT RTS
So at 0x3220A paste in 20 B3 C4 A9 C0 8D 01 A0 60.
This will prevent the schedule from being random. You may need to do a season reset once to get it unrandomized but it should be good from then on.
Our yearly Super Bowl prediction video using TSB 2020 with rosters updated to reflect the end of the year. The 49ers make their first appearance since their beat down of San Diego back in 1995. The Chiefs finally find their way back to the Super Bowl, 50 years after winning Super Bowl 4 over the Vikings in the last hurrah of the old AFL.

The game is now available and so is the 7th annual "Preview Magazine" to the game. Madden ratings were used once again to rate every player. Here's a list of hacks and hack authors used to help create this:
-- 32-team expansion rom (cx_rom, Maynard, Knobbe, others)
-- helmets, field colors (keithisgood)
-- COM looks for open receivers (jstout)
-- COM Ultra Logic to play better defense (jstout)
-- moving & dynamic grapples (bruddog)
-- MAN vs. MAN popcorning (jstout)
-- sort receiving leaders by yards (jstout)
-- more accurate attribute labels, like “Acceleration” (Tecmonster)
-- kicking arrow speed & range to make FG’s easier (Tecmonster)
-- COM minimum kickoff distance (bruddog)
-- increase kickoff ball speed (maynard, bodom)
-- increase shotgun snap speed (jstout)
-- tougher to block FG’s by adding personal protectors (Tecmonster)

-- decrease handoff animation time (xplozv)
-- COM “juice” edited (by Tecmonster)
-- PA affects “catchability/interceptability” of the pass (jstout)
-- set kick returner farther back (bodom)
-- Ball Control ratios edited so BC means more (by Tecmonster)
-- static schedules from week to week (bruddog)
-- Quickness changed to Coverage (jstout)
-- kick returners use their actual attributes (konforce, jstout)
-- stats screen at halftime (xplozv)
-- corrected playoff bracket (pambazos)
-- MAN-controlled QB rollouts on the rollout plays (Tecmonster)
-- LB’s moved farther back from line of scrimmage (Tecmonster)
-- Run & Shoot QB’s almost never scramble (Tecmonster)
-- “heavy pass” teams don’t pass quite as much (Tecmonster)

The classic NES sports title, updated for the 2019-2020 NFL season! Enjoy this version with updated rosters for all 32 NFL teams. Player ratings are kept to the original game’s scale and the game features updated team uniforms and logos as well (hat tip to @gojiphen malor for help with the Jets helmet this year!). The game includes various changes from the original and 5 different versions
The Tecmobowl.org yearly release is just hours before the first game of the NFL kicks off. Probably the most noteworthy item not in our notes is the change in the intro screen of Aaron Rodgers, Todd Gurley, and JJ Watt to Patrick Mahomes, Ezekiel Elliott, and Aaron Donald in addition to a recent Bill Belichick quote.
In addition to ranking the glamour positions like quarterback, running back, and wide receiver each year this is a laundry list of updates which include
updating helmets rating 160 offensive linemen editing the simulation rankings for 800 players editing the jersey numbers for 960 players changing the pro bowl players updating the playbooks and team simulation rankings updating the schedule burning through the rom to check for any crashing bugs
It's a lot of hours but something I enjoy putting together each year with help where ever I can find it. I hope you enjoy it.
Random silly idea. I'm going to share one face a day that I like for whatever reason, with whatever info and thoughts I have about the player(s) and the face. I'll also share a real pic of the player(s) (unless the face is not used for any player) for comparison.
