  8. Good evening everyone, I have made some headway on my International League Logo design. I tried to represent each team on a single shield, which I believe I have done a pretty good job at so far. The areas are placed approximately in geographic order, with two Maple Leaves for the two Canadian teams (with a Union Jack in the top left Leaf to represent the Royals), St. Pierre's flag for the top Right, Mexico's Eagle and Snake on the Bottom Left, and the bottom Right is inhabited jointly by the two "International" Teams, since Puerto Rico and The Conch Republic are both technically part of the US. The next step for the logo is to add some medieval "scrolls" to the top and bottom to put text saying "International League" on. I also did some changes in the ESIFA logos and field covers, with more changes likely to come. Let me know what color text(s) you like; I put one of each on the updated Fields for reference. Thanks for following along! -PK

  10. Let me know your score predictions for my electric football game between the 2019 L.S.U. Tigers and the 2001 Miami Hurricanes and let me know who you think should be favored and by how many points. The game should be pretty soon and I ordered the figures so they will probably come sometime next week.

  11. Yes ...the bigmen cardinals are more of a true red.....the hogs are a much darker red.....and i agree on the hall of fame...so many great players are not in it....id also like to see a focus on getting more of the men from the era of the 60s and 70s in too.....pro football took off and became a must see event in america in the late 50s with the giants and colts games and really exploded onto the scene after that....great players from those years were the reason and dont get enough credit for that.

  13. Awesome sounding game, sounds like it was a good tight battle wire to wire! I prefer the Bright Red Cards (you know, like an actual Cardinal) to the modern subdued Darker Red they have now. Mixed feelings on the Lombardi Gold era Redskins, but it worked for the time I suppose, cuz there were tons of Red Jersey teams in that era. 😆 The fact that Jacoby (and many of the other Hogs for that matter) is not in the Hall of Fame is an outright shame. Joe was the archetypical 90s-2000s Left Tackle, despite playing almost entirely in the 80s: 6'7", 300lbs and could pull like a Guard and cover 3-4 Defense's Linebackers at a time when almost no one ran it. He also played in 4 Super Bowls, winning 3. If I'm not mistaken, on the play that Theismann got....well, Theismann'ed, he was off the field getting examined for injury; so it stands to reason he probably would have kept Carl Banks and Lawrence Taylor away if he was on the field that moment.

  14. My thoughts exactly. The brass masks look way too big, and while I'm far from a stickler for 100% accuracy I still don't like the look of borrowing-older-brother's helmet that they give off either. Considering there's only 3 (as of last count) sizes of figure heads (4 if you count the TTQB, but he's already rocking a uni-bar), you'd think Tudor would make plastic masks that conform perfectly to the curvature of their own figures. Then again it's all just a logistics nightmare right now so I can't entirely blame them. I'm debating on whether to even give my current set facemasks at all, since their faces already look beaten in. Adds character, and saves me money/time/paint. 😁

  15. Packers owned the 60s....steelers owned the 70s....the 80s saw...the rise of the 49ers...bears...giants and washington for 2 or 3 years a piece....but all 4 were in the thick of it pretty much the whole decade.....imagine if norwoods field goal hadnt been wide in that first sb appearance for the bills...they might have been a 4 straight sb wins instead of loses in early 90s.

  17. I play the game to the conditions that are currently outside. This game was played in light rain and overcast skies. I remember the old time games, played on natural grass, that often turned into mudders - for instance, the '64 Giants at Cards 10-10 tie, in which, by the second quarter, all players' numbers were completely obscured. Those were great times, a classic age! I'm in the off season now, and the big thing is adding one more player to each team's roster, bringing each team up to 31 players. To do this, I've been "modifying" certain figures by cutting off and repositioning arms. Thus, a tackle figure is changed into a LB or S; running backs become DEs or WLBs. Thus, each team will be able to field 6 DBs for next season. The results have been good, and I wish Tudor would consider selling individual figures instead of whole teams.

  18. I'll take the Bears winning over what typically happened during that period, which was basically Packers winning every other year in a blowout. I like Bart and the Boys, but man that would get pretty old (kind of like the Patriots/Brady winning just about every other year lol.) Funnily enough, the Vikings actually won a championship the last year (1969-70) before the Super Bowl became a thing. If only they could have carried that into the 70s, it would have been a totally different league.

  20. Last year, I played a short game week in my Solitaire League using the Tudor Red Zone Game Board and played a similar to baseball inning format. 4 quarters - 1 drive per team/ per qtr. / 4 plays per possession. If the home team was ahead after the visiting team's possession in the 4th, the game was over. I did allow games to end in a tie, so no OT qtrs. It was fun and interesting.

  25. I am planning on doing a "what if?" match-up in Electric Football between two of the greatest cfb teams ever assembled, 2019 LSU and 2001 Miami. I usually just do NFL for Electric Football but I decided to do a one time college match-up and I always wondered which of these two teams was better. This is going to be a just for fun game and I will stream it live on my YouTube channel. Since it is a just for fun game, it will not have all of the time limits to set up players, make pivots, motions, and adjustments, and it will have some rule changes, but it will still be a very interesting and fun game. It will be on a running clock, 15 minutes each quarter, and the clock doesn't stop unless it is a 2 minute warnings or a timeout is called ( Each team gets 3 timeouts) I will be controlling both teams and I will keep score and make pivots, motions, and adjustments, as well as use the TTQB. Punts, field goals, and extra points will be different as for punts I will leave the players how they were from the previous play and punt the football with the TTQB from the spot of ball and wherever the ball lands that is where the return team gets to return from and I will place the punt returner where the ball landed. The punting team will get to make pivots and adjustments. For kicking extra points and field goals, I will leave everything how it was from the previous play and kick the field goal from the spot of the ball. There will be no set time to do anything, since it is a just for fun game, and I will take my time, but I will still try my best to go as fast as I can and keep the game running smoothly. I am making a team of 2019 L.S.U. Tigers and 2001 Miami Hurricanes with there actual rosters and starting lineups and each player will have a base. I am not sure when the game will happen but it should be coming soon and I will do it as soon as the teams are ready. Let me know your score predictions for the game. LSU or the U? Who ya got? It should be a pretty good game. Here us the link to my YouTube channel: https://youtube.com/channel/UCTzsBq2jtuKCXVZk_uXGY_w

  27. Great prediction! 👍 I think Miami's run game with Portis, McGahee, Davenport, and Gore and that Canes defense with Ed Reed and Jonathan Vilma will get it done.

  29. The 29th Championship game (Super Bowl 29) has been won by the Lancers, over the Warriors, 23-7. The Lancers concluding their 2021 season at 7-2-1, met the Warriors, who finished 6-4, at Warrior Stadium. This was the fourth championship game meeting of these two teams. Interestingly, all have been played with Warriors as home team - and the Lancers have won every one. The first quarter opened with all the auspices of a defensive struggle, as the Warriors made a concerted effort to stop the Lancers' ground game. In this, they were quite successful throughout the first half, with the longest Lancers' run being a mere 7 yards. The first quarter ended in a scoreless tie, as both teams' quarterbacks had trouble hitting their open receivers - when they were open. Coverage was generally quite good for both teams throughout the game. The second quarter opened with the Warriors moving the ball downfield in an impressive drive. RB #5 ripped off a 54 yard run, and QB #12 finding the range, and hitting 3 out of 4 passes, the last being an 8 yard TD pass to WR #82, giving the Warriors a 7-0 lead, following the conversion. The Lancers responded by driving the ball downfield themselves. QB #6 hit WR #25 on a long pass (only one of three completions he made in the game), and the Lancers advanced to the Warriors' 6 yard line. But #6 was sacked by SS #30, and the Lancers attempted a FG - which went wide left. At that point, things seemed to be going the Warriors' way, but suddenly went south. On third down, inside the 10, #12went back to pass. No one was open, and the Lancers were getting pressure. He pitched the ball to #5, who, trapped, reversed his field, trying to avoid the safety. As he was running left, Lancers' FS #30, fell over (this is considered an injury, and he was out of the game for subsequent plays), but #5 ran right into him, making the score 7-2. The half soon ended. The Lancers got the opening KO for the second half, and replacing QB #6 with #9, began a drive in which #9 completed 4 out of 4 passes. The drive was capped off with #41 running for 3 yards and a TD. After the conversion, the Lancers held their first lead - which would not be relinquished - in the game, and the momentum shifted. The Warriors found it increasingly difficult to run the ball, with #5 losing more yardage than he gained (he finished the game with only 56 yards rushing). The Lancers continued to dominate, and #9 was on a roll, making several key completions. Late in the third quarter, he drove the ball downfield, and reserve FB #24 broke through the left side of the line for a 37 yard TD run. The Lancers now had a 16-7 lead. On the last play of the third quarter, #12 completed a pass to TE #88, who fumbled, and the Lancer's DE #98, quickly running downfield, recovered. On the very next play (the first play of the fourth quarter), #41 broke through the middle of the line, and scored on a 49 yard run. With the Lancers now leading 23-7, the Warriors replaced QB #12 with #8, but he too was unable to generate any offense for the team. #41 led all rushers with 86 yards; #9 (MVP offense) went 7-11 passing in the second half, and provided the spark the Lancers needed; #85 led all receivers with 4 catches. For the Warriors, #5 had 56 yards rushing, and #82 and #88 were the principal receivers, with 3 catches each. The Lancers had 3 sacks (2 by SLB #56 and 1 by DE #87), the Warriors only 1. The Lancers also had the fumble recovery, with dashed all Warrior hopes. There were no interceptions. Warriors' #61 (who replaced the injured WLB #91 in the first quarter) was the MVP defense for sealing off the weak side throughout the game.

  30. Miami 41, LSU 34. Miami run game nearly unstoppable with Portis and Davenport each over 100 yards on the ground. Joe Burrow's pinpoint passing keeps LSU in the game. LSU driving in the final seconds toward a tying TD when Vince Wilfork hits Edwards-Helaire on a draw causing a fumble. Miami recovers, and their offense assumes the victory formation.

  38. Oh yeah, I actually prefer the AFL championship games, at least the ones I've seen from that period. Prettier Uniforms, and the 60s Raiders and Jets really were almost 10 years ahead of what 70s football eventually became.

  39. Oh I get the sentiment, the Pack is my second/third favorite team behind the Panthers (I'll possibly pull for the Skins/whatever they're going to be called again if Snyder ever sells them....that January 3rd fan rail collapse was the final straw 😒). I just know that after watching a bunch of the 60s Packers Championship games on the NFL network over the years that most of them were snoozers where they led basically the entire game. The other Champions had more dynamic games for the most part....then again this is after 30-50+ years of hindsight and reflection from a 31 year old judging games older than his parents, so YMMV and all that jazz. I could also be thinking of some 70s Super Bowls as well and getting them mixed up. 😁

  40. Oh yeah, I'm going whole hog. Granted, a lot of the stuff at the end is more for if I decide to start filming/streaming games. It obviously won't affect game play so I can still play games in the meantime. Knowing me, I'll never be completely satisfied and this will be an ongoing and ever-expanding project.... I really should have been a marketing major in college. 😆

  42. Dorsey was a game manager qb. I will run a pro style offense for Miami and a spread offense for LSU and Miami's defense will have a 4-3 cover 2 defense and LSU will have a 3-4.

  43. That's kind of my theory as well, if Miami's Defense doesn't break their foot off in the Offense early then it's probably going to be more like LSU 35+ and Miami 21. I don't particularly remember Miami being a comeback team, Dorsey was definitely a game manager type QB hence why he was a pretty good QBs coach in the NFL (maybe he still is). Like I said before, it all depends on the way the passing game (and passing game ruleset for that matter) goes. If it favors the run game and the secondary, it's going to be a tight Miami victory. If it favors passing, roll on Tigers. 👍

  44. Depending on the ruleset, I have Miami 24, LSU 14. I believe this was the season Miami had an absolute beast of a Defense, whereas LSU had a "the best Defense is a Great Offense" type team in '19. I wasn't a huge college sports follower around those times though so I could be backwards. 🤔

  45. My remaining to-do List: - Order Blue TTC Bases (Forgot to order with the teams; since there's a delay with shipping anyway I'll just order next weekend) - Order 6 more TTQBs (already have 12) - Order Field Covers - Order Tudor Motors, Ultimate Converter, and Controllers (already have my own wiring, power supply, and cabling) - Buy & Cut Plexiglass, Angled Brackets, Small Machine Screws, and possibly netting for End Zones - Buy & Cut Lumber for Frame - Wire up LED Lights for Penalties, Time-Outs, Made/Missed FGs (Optional) - Order Refs, Coaches, and etc. Sideline Figures (Optional)

  46. That's great news! I can say the same about my work, I work in a fairly small team and from what I understand none of them really do much outside of work so risk of infection is pretty low but never zero....had a scare at my job last year and only myself and another colleague were able to work for 10 days while the other 3 had to self isolate, and that was far from enjoyable!😂 Yeah the situation here is a bit frustrating and doesn't help with these so called "leaders" we have over here who seem to want to change plans every 5 minutes along with all the lies told and rule breaking a lot of them have committed, makes it a very tough decision to follow their guidelines or ignore them completely. Just feel it is going to be yet ANOTHER tough year for everyone everywhere.... I think with me having very little exposure to the sport it may be a big factor to why I do find EF and football quite fascinating although there is a ton of sports here the main ones are soccer, rugby or cricket and to be honest I have grown quite bored of what there is to offer here. Played rugby for many years but the passion sadly faded away and wanted to try something new. I have took up both Softball since last summer and since last Sunday I had my first session with the local American football team here the "Berkshire Renegades" so I have turned my focus to the sports more popular in your fine country. Can't wait to learn more about football and actually playing, playing EF, watching games, video games etc will be great tools to expand my knowledge and enjoyment of the sport in general Playing 8 man so far is going very well the board does not seem as bare as when I was playing with 6 man teams so I am enjoying the gameplay a little bit more with the 2 extra men at my disposal. And having just the 3 extra men to use as substitutes is also nice rather than having 5 on the side standing there doing nothing, at least now all 11 figures get a decent run out during a game. I am sure your 7 man tournament will turn out well...but if you do decide to go for 8V8 will you have to do all the rebranding of your logos and get new fields printed out??? I would imagine that would become quite expensive as well as time consuming, especially as you have put in such an incredible amount of time and effort so far! Lol I mean rules are there to be broken I am sure Tudor knew exactly what they were doing and got caught out 😂. I don't envy those guys having NFL and/or NCAA breathing down their necks checking for licensing violations to flex their muscles and maybe try and squeeze a few more bucks out the little man! 😂 shame really I would have definitely purchased those figures At the time of writing this Tudor seem to have the white unpainted figures back in stock so if you're in the market for unpainted figures probably would buy now! I assume their supply would be limited though. Sadly may have to postpone my plans for painting figures until probably February/March due to financial reasons. Fingers crossed they are still in stock when I get round to wanting to paint my own 🙂

  47. Thanks for the concerns, thankfully everyone has recovered more or less and luckily I work in a small office with one other person with just as little of a social life as me. 😆 I've heard things are getting pretty rough in your area too, so y'all 'n yours take care as well now, y'hear? 😁 (Ok my Southern accent isn't actually that strong.... I hope anyway.) I guess league wasn't quite the right word, but I like seeing your progress regardless of the term, lol. Especially seeing as to your experience going in a bit....unspoiled....I guess is the word. I grew up with American Football practically from birth (one of my earliest photos is of tiny-baby-me with my Dad as we watched the 'Skins playing on tv) so there's things I probably overlook that you're noticing. Also like that you're going with an 8v8 format as well. I'm trying out my 7 man league for now, but if it absolutely drags I may go to an 8 man for more Offense. Ha, I think they were actually designed by a fan in a contest or tourney or something that Tudor held. I don't Tudor were being THAT blatant, but who knows? 😆
