    The Reply

    This is beyond ridiculous. As far as I know I’m the only person to have put on tournaments with the help of both Troy and Dave. Both are known names within the community and for different reasons. I have typed and deleted a post here 10 times wanting to voice my concerns but instead I’d rather give my appreciation to Dave and the way he conducts his business. I’ll let the rest fill in the blanks but know this I was going to shut my tournament down due to he actions of one person looking to become something bigger than everyone else. When I created my Tecmo Milwaukee tournament I had the help of Rico and that was it. He was connected and we didn’t know how big we could get it. I reached out to Josh and Chet for help. They didn’t want to get involved but they gave me the players list so away I went. I quickly had a great deal of interest, but Rico and I didn’t have enough equipment. In came Troy. Troy wanted to play but had to justify it with his wife. He told me that he has all this equipment and TVs he could provide but for a price. So already from my first conversation I knew where his heart was. Still we needed the equipment due to getting a late start on it. His price? Meals, hotel, entry fee, federal mileage. Came out to $220. I kept it quiet from everyone and paid it out of my own pocket and not taking it out of tourney pool. Troy did a great job and his equipment was top notch. You can tell a lot about a person in just the appreciation or giving of small gestures. Troy said he had a bad back and didn’t want to load up his vehicle. After the completion of our tourney I cleaned and loaded up his stuff. Perhaps he could have bought me a beer? Nope. He charges for his services....should I have charged for mine? He never stayed in a hotel but took that money. I walked out down $450 out of pocket, and was happy! It’s not about the money...it’s about the game. THe boys eventually found out that I paid Troy and they weren’t happy with it. They said I shouldn’t have to eat that money, so we got out ahead on getting equipment for next tourney. We had all these systems and TVs that we were going to have to collect over town. I reached out to Troy asking if he was going to play....not use his equipment but play. He said no because we weren’t going to pay him to come down. Again has to justify it with wife. After a few contentious conversations Troy was about to have another kid and money was tight. We had guys who offered to carpool and I said I could help him out on fee. Had to be equipment or no deal for that he could sell to his wife. In comes Dave Murray, who mind you I have had all but maybe 3 conversations with ever! He asked if I needed anything. Some of the prominent players who attended my tournament vouched for me and Dave reached out on his own. I told him my plan and dilemmas. The next day I received a package from package had all of his controllers and a credit card to get into the storage unit. He calls me and says take whatever you need. Systems, cords, TVs, and carts. Unbelievable. I ask how much you want?............his reply “Buy me a beer.” Some of you may not know, but someone stole equipment from Dave at Madison. He didn’t have to reach out and help after what the community did but he did anyway. I dont care about how good of a player you are or think you are. I don’t care how many tournaments you have won. I don’t care if you create a better website or have fancy advertising.......Respect is earned and it’s lost that quickly when you try to manipulate others. Like scheduling a tournament two weeks before mine and not reach out to discuss things. What that shows me........lack of respect not only for me but for all of those who play in it. Choices are good, competition is not. Everyone loses with that BS!

    Shit.....if Flo doesn’t go for it on 4th down and go up two scores in the 4th he wins. Im just salty that I fumbled setting up a FG with Morten Anderson with 20 seconds left and lost to Flo in OT keeping me out of the 1 seed.

    I will have everything set up on Friday during the day. I will not be able to get there on Friday night until after 8pm. Feel free to play before I get there, but I want those who get there before me contact me first.

    Here it is guys. Been traveling for work and I haven't been able to do the usual push for registrations. Dave and Rico have offered to help. I should be able to crank it back up in two weeks. We have 20+ confirmed and I really like to have 40 or more like we've had. Don't take lack of responses on here from me as something of putting on a halfass tourney.
  5. Tecmo Milwaukee Presents: Who's Next? Date: 11/4 Location: Boomers Sports Bar and Grill (Pewaukee, WI) Player field projected at 48 players. Max players cutoff will be at 64 players.Round robin of Division play followed by single elimination tournament. Projected Entry Fee is $40Game Rules: Tecmo Milwaukee rules/ Tecmo Madison rules1) Teams will be tiered in 4 groups of 7 teams. 7 Lotto balls will be picked from before each game to determine which tier teams will be picked from. (1 in 7 chance for Tier 1 teams to be picked). 2) Coin toss winner picks Lotto Ball. Coin Toss Loser picks matchup. Coin toss Winner picks Team or Controller. (Player can only choose a team 1 time during round robin play. Teams resets in tournament play.)3) Customizing Playbooks and Lineup Changes: Customizing playbooks is permissible. You can access your “change” screen (screen where you check player conditions and make substitutions) only twice per half. This helps speed up the games. 4) WR/TE at RB: A WR/TE cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. You can insert a WR or TE into a RB slot for lead blocking purposes, but he cannot carry the football. To further clarify, players such as Ernest Givins, Ricky Sanders, Mel Gray, Keith Jackson and Andre Rison cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. 5) No Ties/Overtime: No game can end in a tie. If a game is tied when regulation concludes, competitors will proceed to OT. If no one scores in the first OT, a new game will begin and the first competitor to score will be declared the winner. So that one competitor does not start with the ball in each OT period, the kicking team in the first OT will be the receiving team in the new game (i.e. the second OT). 6) Lurching: Lurching is prohibited. If you want to rush with a DL, you must either go outside the offensive tackle or “popcorn” someone on the offensive line. Note that this rule does not apply to LBs. 7) Nintendo Malfunctions: If there is an equipment failure in the first half, games will be replayed from the start. If equipment malfunctions in the 2nd half, only the second half is replayed. In that event, the scores from each half are added together to obtain a final score. If the game was uncompetitive or the equipment malfunctioned due to human error, the tourney organizers reserve the right to declare a winner without replaying any portion of the game. Tournament Disputes: Rico, Coconuts, Troy and myself. 9) Controllers: Tournament competitors are not allowed to bring their own controller to use in games unless approved prior to tournament. Tournament organizers will coordinate obtaining equipment for the competition. Entry Deadline is 11/1 Email address: [email protected] Top 8 places paid out. Each tournament has been a huge success fielding a very competitive playing field coming from all parts of the country. The venue is fantastic with great service, food and of course Adult Solutions. Our set up is fantastic with game play moving fast and furious. There is large interest already for this tournament. Don’t miss out! Thank you, Hardy Nickerson
