  1. CFT 4 Capsule Previews Clark Conference Mt. Saint Helens Division 1. Chicago Bears : Owner : Stu aka BoogieWithStu - Quarterback Troy Aikman is the cornerstone of an explosive young offense. With the emergence of running back Sammie Smith and fullback Tony Paige, the Bears have a more balanced offensive attack. Michael Irvin is the deep threat, while Kelvin Martin is the possession receiver. Tight end Jay Novacek is one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the league. Greg Townsend, Howie Long and Bob Golic compose one of the most formidable defensive lines in the CFT. Nose tackle Golic does a good job of tying up blockers and allowing linebackers Chris Spielman, Micheal Cofer, and Dennis Gibson to make tackles. Strong safety Joey Browner is a big-play maker who makes key hits and interceptions. 2. Denver Broncos : Owner : Pete T aka ptitteri - Quarterback Vinny Testaverde times his throws well and has good anticipation of receivers Wendell Davis and Ron Morris, who have the speed to get open deep and the toughness to make a catch over the middle. No other running back possesses the speed, balance, and acceleration of the Broncos' Barry Sanders. Defensive end Richard Dent continues to be one of the league's premier pass rushers. The hustling pursuit of veteran linebacker Andre Collins makes it difficult to gain yards against the Broncos' defense. Versatile Jerry Gray is the prototype CFT defensive back. 3. Seattle Seahawks : Owner : invader aka invaderstar64 - The running and passing of quarterback Rodney Peete ignite the Seattle offense. Marion Butts is the swiftest 250-pound running back in the league. The Seahawks would like to pair him in the backfield with Rod Bernstine or Ronnie Harmon. Ricky Proehl and Roy Green are a pair of sure-handed receivers with deceptive speed. Bubba McDowell leads Seattle's "Air Patrol" secondary. Mt. Hood Division 1. New York Giants : Owner : JoeyB aka JoeyHoneyB - The Giants have two of the most dangerous receivers in the league. Wide Receiver Hassan Jones takes some of the receiving burden of Anthony AC Carter and gives quarterback Ken O'Brien another deep threat. The running of John L. Williams and Derrick Fenner propels the Giants' "Ground Chuck" offense. Defensively, safety David Fulcher and outside linebacker Ken Harvey are a pair of heavy hitters who make receivers hear footsteps and ball carriers run scared. Nose tackle Jerry Ball does a good job of tying up blockers allowing linebackers Eric Hill and Anthony Bell to do a solid job of stuffing the run. 2. Philadelphia Eagles : Owner : Hanging Chadwick - The Eagles believe in the magic of quarterback Don Majkowski. The confident passer does an excellent job of locating receivers Sterling Sharpe and Perry Kemp downfield. The Eagles are using the two-back set more often to better utilize the running and receiving skills of Albert Bentley. Tight end Ed West is a valuable possession receiver. Linebackers Derrick Thomas and Percy Snow wreak havoc on opposing ball carriers and quarterbacks. Cornerbacks Albert Lewis and Kevin Ross and safeties Kevin Porter and Deron Cherry make up one of the best secondaries in the league. 3. San Francisco 49ers : Owner : gripsmoke - The 49ers are hard to stop because they have so many weapons. Joe Montana is arguably the finest quarterback ever to play, and when he's not passing to his receivers, he's handing off to running backs James Brooks and Ickey Woods. Wide receiver Robert Clark will catch anything he gets his hands on. Linebackers Kevin Murphy and Eugene Marve lead an aggressive defense. Lewis Conference Mt. Baker Division 1. Dallas Cowboys : Owner : kamphuna8 aka turbohuna4eva! - Quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver is a good medium-to-short-range passer and has top receivers Mark Clayton and Mark Duper and tight end Ferrell Edmunds. Few teams run the football like the Cowboys. Running backs Dalton Hilliard and Rueben Mayes and burly fullback Craig "Ironhead" Heyward are hard-nosed ball carriers that keep the first down markers moving. Defensively, Freddie Joe Nunn excels as a pass rusher and the Cowboys have arguably the best linebackers in the league in Lawrence Taylor, Carl Banks, Pepper Johnson, and Gary Reasons. 2. Kansas City Chiefs : Owner : manyo aka madmanyo720 aka madmanyo360 aka Blue Luigi - Jim Harbaugh is one of the most accurate passers in the CFT. Regardless of who's playing quarterback, the Cheefz' offense will move the football. The running and receiving skills of Bo Jackson, Marcus Allen, and Steve Smith keep opposing defenses off balance. At 6-5. 274 pounds, tight end Eric Green is the largest deep threat in the league. Defensive linemen Cortez Kennedy, Tony Woods, Jacob Green and Joe Nash are excellent against the run and the pass. Linebackers Rufus Porter and David Wyman make good reads and always find the ball. Quarterbacks should be aware of ballhawking cornerback Wayne Haddix. 3. Los Angeles Rams : Owner : Bruddog - Sticky fingered receiver Andre Rison is quarterback John Fourcade's favorite target. Versatile Merril Hoge who plays both running back positions, is a dangerous receiver out of the backfield. The hustling pursuit of veteran defensive end Charles Mann makes it difficult to gain yards against the Rams defense. The Rams 4-3 defense is well suited for the pass rushing skills of defensive tackle Ray Childress. Linebackers Al Smith and Johny Meads excel at stuffing the run. Few defensive backs close on the ball and have a knack for interceptions like Rams' strong safety Mark carrier. 4. Phoenix Cardinals : Owner : ~ Tailback King ~ aka The Rida! - Quarterback Wade Wilson is a poised leader who will not panic in the pocket. Running backs Johnny Johnson and Anthony Thompson make up one of the finest young backfields in the league. Receivers Vance Johnson, Mark Jackson, and Ricky Nattiel may lack size, but they make clutch receptions. Defensive ends Chris Doleman and Al Noga are quick off the ball. The Cardinals' linebackers are the strength of their defense. Outside linebackers Pat Swilling and Rickey Jackson excel as pass rushers and inside linebackers Sam Mills and Vaughan Johnson are solid against the run and in pass coverage. Strong safety Tim McDonald hits like a linebacker and covers receivers like a cornerback. Mt. Rainier Division 1. Atlanta Falcons : Owner : DT aka DTfromBtown - When the Falcons want to run over defenders, they pair Kevin Mack and Leroy Hoard in the backfield. When they want to run around defenders, they give the ball to speedy scatback Eric Metcalf. Speedy receiver Anthony Miller consistently beats double coverage. Linebacker John Offerdahl leads Atlanta's "Grits Blitz" defense. Free safety Scott Case gives excellent support against the run. Cornerback Deion (Prime Time) Sanders is one of the fastest players in the league. 2. Cincinnati Bengals : Owner : Tick aka White Tick - Whenever Phil Simms is looking to pass, he can count on his posse-wide receivers, Gary Clark, Art Monk, and Ricky Sanders to come up with a clutch reception. The developing Blair Thomas and rejuvenated Freeman McNeil propel the Bengals' offense. Defensive End Bruce Smith is a dominating presence who directly affects opposing offensive game plans. Linebackers Jessie Tuggle, Michael Reid, and Darion Conner lead Cincinnati's "Tick's Sticks" defense. 3. Los Angeles Raiders : Owner : XtraLargent - John Elway's cannon arm and nimble feet make him very difficult to defend. The Raiders wear down their opponents with their run-oriented ball-control offense. Ottis Anderson and Rodney Hampton are explosive ball carriers and scatback Dave Meggett is a dangerous receiver out of the backfield. Wide receivers Webster Slaughter and Reggie "Foghorn" Langhorne are aggressive receivers who will go into the interior of the defense to make a reception. Burt Grossman and Lee Williams do a fine job of pressuring the quarterback. Unsung cornerback Terry McDaniel will make quarterbacks regret trying to throw at him.
  2. Thank you WTF members. Everyone posted. All made the first deadline. Now let's make the rest!
  3. Ummmm Guys? 11 days til CFT 4! We gonna have some special type shit erupting soon. In a good way, lol. 11 is the number of players that Tecmo Super Bowl got right over Tecmo Bowl (among MANY other things). I sense a SHAMAN in our midst... His cat just dropped a chipmunk at his feet... This sign is a favorable one...
  4. 1995 Back Game Policy One of the big issues I see that needs to be addressed is a back game policy that works. What I will be doing this first season won’t be perfect, but it will be something that we can build on in the future. Now the problems I see with abuse of the current system is usually related to guys not playing so that they can either A) avoid injury, or see what they need to get gain wise once their competition for said gain has their games in and can see what they need, perhaps on multiple positions. Then another problem is waiting at the end of the season for the same schmoe’s to get their games in. Now let me get one thing straight. Posting at your opponents in the WTF discord channel DOES NOTHING FOR ME in terms of showing your effort to schedule. You know what shows me your effort? Playing AND UPLOADING your game AND NSV. CAPS ON PURPOSE! Now I do have a request to put in a dedicated scheduling channel for WTF. We might get one and we might not, but since the AIM days, and ESPECIALLY since the rise of Discord, tags and messages get lost in the shuffle. I’ve always ascribed to the fact that the best way to contact your opponent is directly. (It works that way in draft alerts too). On to the policy. There will be deadlines for each week’s set of roms. ******* The first deadline for this first season will be to post on this thread that you got it. 1st Violation: If an owner misses a deadline, he/she will be given a warning. 2nd Violation: If an owner misses 2 deadlines in one season, the commissioner will then take away a gain (commissioner will choose after the rolls, and I will choose the one that hurts the offending team the most, commish discretion). If no gain roll is hit, I will choose one attribute from any player on the roster and drop it one notch. 3rd Violation: If an owner misses 3 deadlines in one season, all gain rolls and the security provided by earning a gain roll will be revoked. This will be done after rolls, so if you are a 3 time offender, you will see your rolls like normal and then I will apply the aging roll your players got (it will still be the same number rolled, but without the protection of earning the gain roll) AND the commish will choose one player that will get fully aged. Commish will pick the player that affects the team the most. If an owner misses 4 deadlines in one season, that owner is BOOTED. Bye Felicia style. This first season under it, I will implement an additional deadline for league members to post here Now on to some questions that I think many will pose. How much time will we have for the deadlines? The actual deadlines will be posted on the rom release thread, but the format is as follows. Weeks 1-4 need to be in by 3 weeks of the scheduled release day of week 4 by 11:59PM eastern. Weeks 1-8 need to be in by 2 weeks of the scheduled release day of week 8 by 11:59pm eastern. Weeks 1-12 need to be in by 1 week of the scheduled release day of week 12 by 11:59pm eastern. Weeks 1-13 need to be in by 1 week of the scheduled release day of week 13 by 11:59pm eastern. Weeks 1-14 need to be in by 1 week of the scheduled release day of week 14 by 11:59pm eastern. All games will need to be in by 10 days of the final rom release by 11:59pm eastern. What if my opponent was out on vacation? That vacation should be known and any deadline violations related to it will be considered in laying (or not laying) down the hammer. Is that a total of 8 games to be played for the deadline? No, it means at the deadline, if it says weeks 1-8 need to be in, ALL games through week 8 need to be in. ******* The first deadline for this first season will be to post on this thread that you got it.

  5. Y’all voted a couple season back to keep to a 2 roms per week release schedule. Here is your 1995 Rom Release Schedule Weeks 1-3 Saturday July 6 ( Count week 3 as July 9 - Tuesday’s release this week ) Week 4 Thursday July 11 Week 5 Tuesday July 16 DEADLINE TO POST AFFIRMATION OF NEW BACKGAME RULES 11:59pm Eastern Week 6 Thursday July 18 Week 7 Tuesday July 23 Week 8 Thursday July 25 Week 9 Tuesday July 30 Week 10 Thursday August 1 (Deadline all games weeks 1-4 11:59pm Eastern) Week 11 Tuesday August 6 Week 12 Thursday August 8 (Deadline all games weeks 1-8 11:59pm Eastern) Week 13 Tuesday August 13 Week 14 Thursday August 15 (Deadline all games weeks 1-12 11:59pm Eastern) Week 15 Tuesday August 20 (Deadline all games weeks 1-13 11:59pm Eastern) Week 16 Thursday August 22 (Deadline all games weeks 1-14 11:59pm Eastern) Regular Season Deadline Sunday night September 1 by 11:59pm eastern savings time I might be inclined to release some early, but know that the pace will slow toward the end so the last 2 are released on the scheduled days.
  6. Dear WTF I’ve been meaning to share this kind of an address to the league since I got back home almost a week ago, but then life comes at you fast. So here goes. Better late than never right? I have a multitiered approach to my new declaration. MAKE WTF TBORG AGAIN! TBORG aka Tecmobowl.org houses the kind of content and organization that can greatly improve the experience the World Tecmo Federation provides its members. The big idea is to get good content to our members (current, former and potentially future) that is more easily accessible than on discord and holds up better for posteriors. Err,posterity. So, in order to incentivize the use of TBorg, I will put forward 2 chances for WTF members to improve their rosters through posting content on TBorg. The 2 ways to improve your team will be through posts of game recaps and then posts of any other content covering the league, such as season previews, reviews, divisional or even individual team preview/reviews, predictions, draft recaps, mock drafts, ideas to vote on to improve the league and rationales for and against, or any other non recap post that provides the World Tecmo Federation. If you can incorporate video of your pets you get bonus points (not really). So how can you earn notches of attributes for your team you ask? At the conclusion of the regular season, I will take the top 5 TBORG recappers and do a dice roll to see who gets the attribute gain. The attribute gain will be applicable to ANY defensive player that played the previous season and DID NOT get a gain. The recaps must have some semblance of telling the story of the game beyond what the actual stat recap page can tell. And it can’t just be a video of the game, you gotta write what happened. Basically, tell what happened. Doesn’t have to be a Kamp novel. It DOES have to tell what happened in the game. If there are 5 guys who posted 16 recaps that pass the Kamp sniff test, those 5 will each get a 20 percent chance in one roll of a 100 sided die. If there are more than 5 that post all 16, I will devise a system or vote to narrow it down to 5. If the top 5 owners posting recaps all have different recap post totals, then the odds in the random roll will be staggered like 22, 21, 20, 19 and 18 in a roll of a 100 sided die. As for the non recap posts, the prize will be a one notch bump in any attribute for an offensive player that did NOT get a gain the previous season. The cutoff date for this will be when I flip the WTFPhile to the next season, thus it can include any of the suggestions I included. Top 5 posters will be staggered in terms of Kamp’s CRYteria. Basically, the number of posts, and if there are any ties, I will break them, Ivan Drago style. Values will be the same as the recap roll values. A 100 sided die will be rolled, 1-22 would go to top poster, 23 – 43 (21%) would go to 2nd place poster, 44 – 63 (20%) would go to 3rd, 64 – 82 (19%) would go to 4th place poster, and the 5th place poster would get the hit if it rolled 83-100 (18%). I am ineligible for any of these gain roll hits, but I shall be posting.
  7. I had a teacher and basketball coach who was 80 yo at Iolani School in Hawaii (same school as Ari and Bern Brostek) whose name was Father Halter. He would in exasperation use the term "Judas Priest!" . Well he would also tell at me saying, "You're a gentleman and a scholar... but mostly a bum!"
  8. Look, yeah I'm stuck with only phone discord and this has been a very Life Comes at you Fast moment. I just want to remind the league that to me one of the most important tenets of this league was the idea of camaraderie. We've seen some great examples of it today. Eifert agreeing to give DT the Seahawks for one. Guys have been nice enough to me to accept my trades to get Cowboys and Huskies even if it doesnt really do anything for them (I'm still getting the worst end of most of these, and gladly). The owner and division draft was fun as heck. But it seems like some of us are taking this a little too seriously, or are identifying more as the owner of their team than as tecmo brethren. This whole situation with Erik and BoOklahoma is sad as I bet if Erik never took the reins to keep this league going, there wouldn't be as much issue between them. As for the root of this issue, it's obviously the trading drama. I dont know of a perfect solution. In my brief tenure as "just an owner", even one who did phile and database fixing shit, a glorious tenure for me personally, I get it that there's the general feeling that trade rapeage occurred and there's a lot of people up in arms over the unfairness of it all. I've seen the "analytics" but all I'm hearing is what I hear from one of my daughters when the other is the only one that gets something desired. Whining, which was a term used to describe it, it kind of fits. There are systems in place to try and curb this stuff and try to maintain that franchise integrity, like the only being able to trade picks from 1 year in advance, and the trade committee. Plus, aren't we all big boys here? Don't we all put on our big boy pants daily? But what the league, (emphasis on THE LEAGUE as the entity that I am holding up as most important in this convo, meaning all of us) is getting are statements like: well since the system does not seem like it will be fixed to my liking, and this other guy got to "unfairly get really good commodities" well I will also "unfairly get really good commodities" and then incessantly bring it up without offering much in the form of solutions, sure you can say you're joking but thats trolling. And then the benefactor of those trades, the other bo if you will, continues to throw out bullshit trade offers amidst all this, so.much so that others ascribe to the same mentality to "start the trade process" (maybe it's just me, but if someone starts off a trade process to me with that kind of offer it turns me off from wanting to deal with them" and so much so that it stands out when a reasonable trade offer is sent out to start negotiations by this other bo, that I'm moved to alert the recipient of said offer and say hey you know what, this offer from this guy actually isnt bullshit. That's trolling in my mind too. All this drama and hassle to feel the need to deal with as a commish, not to.mention the personal attacks tonight, which for some like me might be entertaining like watching WWE, but as a custodian of the league I could see it not only being a turn off to some that are in the league, but also to prospective new owners to the league. If this were say my reboot of retro where I would actually just be the one voice of judgement inspired by MRTSB, I would just boot the both of the guys who, as somebody mentioned was amazed that they'd made it this far in life with such a tremendous lack of self awareness. But this isnt that reboot and this league is not me. Its WTF. I want to bring back the camaraderie aspect. Being in this league is not a given, he'll this league existing is not a given, but we ARE better than this aren't we? Anyway, the real hero is me for typing all this shit up on my fucking phone. We'll figure out a lot of what needs to be done as a league in the next few days with whatever votes are necessary. Then hopefully we can get back to the fun. Like draft recap posts and season preview posts. And using TBorg more. Anyway that's all I got for tonight. Fuck you all @WTF and GN
  9. Would love to have you up for a CFT season. We know all about how expensive it is to travel. I just need to know beforehand because set up for a CFT season is very labor intensive and need to know who will be there well in advance. I never plan on infringing upon Midwest Tecmo because it's at or near the top of my tecmo bucket list. In the run-up to announcing our date, I have to inquire amongst our PNW brethren what dates accommodate the most guys. I'd prefer earlier in July, As for OG rom, we do what no one else does (yet). Yes we draft and mix up the players and teams, but it's in an effort to play a SEASON with many teams that are much more even than you can on original carts. And, you can't play a SEASON on original carts with this many players in one day. But you can't get any more OG than playing a SEASON with stats conditions and injuries on NES hardware. THIS is where it's at. And yeah, our crew is top notch as well. It's the best experience in tecmo in my not so humble opinion.
  10. I'm sorry don't have a ton of time to write about this. But I have been looking and thinking on this since the nominees were posted. Warren Moon, QB - Short bright career. Not enough for this rodeo. That's a NO Andre Tippett, LB - THE monster LB of the early history of this league. not one but two 21 sack seasons. YES YES YES Roland James, DB - This one was the toughest I decision I had. The fact that he anchored ChiefsJr's stellar teams' defense over that span and won that first ring for him. YES Ottis Anderson, RB - Easiest decision ever. What a career for OJ Anderson. YAS Darrin Nelson, RB - Have gone back and forth on this. Adding in his receiving stats over his Giants years, his winning the Super Bowl (and 8 TDs in the run for it, so an integral part obviously, but he delivered). Gotta go with... YES

  13. #4 Dallas Cowboys 17 #11 NY Jets 14. Game started well for the Cowboys. QB Richardson was put in for Dil-fer and got JJ picked by Kevin Smith on a picked play after a couple of first downs on the ground. Cowboys drove the ball down and scored TD, 7-0. Jets threw on a picked play again, and it was an overthrow and picked off by Darren Woodson. Dallas drove down to the 3 but needed to kick FG before time ran out in 1st half, 10-0 Dallas at the half. Dallas gets the ball and drives down. Trent Green pulled an idiot QB move, threw it toward the end zone and the WR JJ whiffed at the goal line and the pair of DBs in the back of the end zone came away with the INT. One CC bomb to Flipper later and it's 10-7 just like that. Dallas gets ball and drives down and Trent Green runs it in with about 3 min left? 17-7 Dallas. One Flipper CC Bomb later it's 17-14. Onsides by the Jets is recovered by Dallas and Cowboys run out the last 2min of game to hold on. GG FightMack. GLRW Final Dallas 17 - Jets 14
  14. I know that a Burning Mort cannot be explained but experienced and I must experience it before the conjurer's flames extinguish eternally...
