  1. https://forum.tudorgames.com/topic/289-toepro-kicker/
  2. It's here in the Tudor forums (fora, really, but I'm an old fart).
  3. Chris meant to turn the knob all the way up first, press the button, and then you can lower it to the speed you want to play at. I remember reading that there's something about higher voltage needed to get the motor working at first?
  4. Coach Kinchen has detailed directions on this site for how to make your own ToePro kicker, punter, and passer (three diff figures).
  5. Fresh batteries? Sorry had to ask. You could use a multimeter to test the controller (set for DCV probes on the plug T/S). Testing the motion generator is a little more tricky since you can't use the DMM probes on it directly, but it is possible to ohm it out. I have no idea what the Ohms should be, but you will at least know there's continuity. If you remove it from the board and take off the tape, I think you can unscrew the top off of it.
  6. The other game was the Packers’ home opener, hosting the NYGWHITE. It was a back-and-forth affair, but the Packers had two explosive plays—a rush for 48 for Hinkle, and an 80 yard pass from Hebert to Milt Gantenbein. Hebert ran it in himself in the third from 12 yards out to score the only points of the game (but PAT was good) to win the game 7-0. IMG_7236.MOV
  7. Week 3. Detroit at NYGBLUE. G-men prevailed 10-0. A 30 yard rush on 2nd & 10 in the first quarter made it seem like the Lions might score first, but a pick three plays later eventually resulted in a field goal for New York to close the first half. In the second half, Charlie Batch was no better. After three consecutive incompletes, Detroit got flagged for OPI on 4th down. Giants didn’t do much going 4&out. On the next play, Batch threw another puck, and the giants scored a TD with only one play remaining.

    Tudor 9092

    Sigh. I meant that the a field cover's extra mass may even out the vibrations from the motor across the board. Maybe not, but that's why we experiment.
  9. If anyone has any suggestions to improve anything, I’m all ears. Games tonight were postponed until tomorrow because one of the guys had food poisoning.
  10. Our league just got a HIPS field. We used it on our test night. They guys all ran pretty well on it. I did notice that the frame will dip a little, so I cut two 1" pieces of wood to use as legs halfway along the side rail (like there were on the "pan" style big tudor/miggle boards). Our first game on it will be next week, so I can report more after that. Shipping is almost the price of the board, fwiw.

    Tudor 9092

    Has anyone tried adding a field cover? The extra mass might even it out a bit.
  12. Not sure I did the right thing on the league page. But I figured the rule set was too long to copy and paste in here, nor does it really belong here.
  13. I posted the rules we are using to my league page. They are based on the assumption that we want to have fun playing moreso than total realism, and we believe the game is best when it’s turned on. We try to keep the rules as simple as possible for friendly (but real) competition. But as some rules become second nature, we are adding more wrinkles to improve the rule set.
  14. Packers 2-0 NYGWhite 1-0 Broncos 1-1 Lions 0-1 NYGBlue 0-2
  15. In other Week 2 action, the Giants White won their first game of the season, besting the Broncos in their second home game, 14-6. The white G-men scored on their first possession and never looked back. Defense lead the way, with two picks and a sack, while the rush-focused offense chewed up the clock. The Broncos made a game of it early in the second half, but never seriously threatened in the fourth quarter. White Giants kneeled the ball to cement the win.
  16. Ok. Rules will be shared soon. but on to week 2: ‘39 Packers at NYG Blue: 6-0 The Packers used a mix of ball control and defense to keep the reigning champs winless. Clark Hinkle ran the ball effectively, and he featured in the passing game as well. Don Hutson also contributed, and Arnie Herber ran a key sneak for a 1st down in the final quarter. Tiki Barber had his moments, and the blue giants did threaten in the second half. But the Blue Giants sputtered in the red zone, never recording a si for point.
  17. I’ve been typing up rules. As always, they are a work-in-progress. I can post if anyone’s interested. I feel my special teams plays are a little unique. I have set them up for more action and less stoppage. Everything is a trade-off.
  18. I do believe that Tudor can make custom field covers, so they should be able to make a CFL one for you. I think it would only be feasible on the Ultimate board, since you have to fit in 30 more yards of length. The actual length of each yard would probably approach what you have on a 620 field.
  19. Last Monday was our first week of games. The visiting ‘39 Packers beat the Lions 6-3 on their “new” 1967 620 home field. Packers missed a PAT, but controlled the ball for the entire second half (16 plays) to seal the win. Green Bay had 3 picks, the lions one. In other action, the Broncos, playing on their new home field—a ‘78 660–handled the reigning RSFL Champion Giants Blue, 13-10. Giants tried to tie it up as the clock expired with a field goal, but it was unsuccessful. A good beginning for the upstart Denver squad, who last season played as the Bears and finished in last place.
  20. Grown men wearing purple?? Let’s see the Packers!
  21. Yes--this is a bit off topic (sorry OP) but Ill DM you Chris. Thinking Google slides that anyone can edit anywhere??
  22. As predicted, the Lions abandoned the Miggle Super Bowl for the grass 620 home field. Played on it last night, and it works great.
  23. I was talking with Chris about this--we really should put together a list of all the different boards that Tudor produced. Like, organized by size. I'd be willing to help do some research and write-up.
  24. And I just noticed that on the 4th board, the Dolphin logo is backward on the helmet on the rail!
