  1. Yup, I remember watching those all those guys play. Most of them are currently active in my solitaire league.
  2. I experimented with two motors as well, and ended up placing them in the same positions as Joe G - diagonal in opposite corners of the opposing end zones and facing each other. Works great!
  3. Wow. Really excellent! To actually take it down to the actual facemasks, gloves, etc. is truly amazing!
  4. Very nice. Boy, that's a lot of purple! ๐Ÿ˜Š
  5. Nice. Wish I had collected them all when I was starting out. I only bought the teams I liked back then, so am missing some. ๐Ÿ˜’
  6. Very nice. I have my Super Bowl III board as well, but for a long time it was my only board, so it has seen some wear and tear. However, it has also seen many years of great electric football, and provided me with many years of enjoyment!
  7. I agree. I try to have some kind of logic for determining which figures i adjust and how they are adjusted, but ultimately it's my system. It works for me, but might not work for others. Since it's just me playing I just have to make sure I use the same system for all my teams.
  8. I still have the Super Bowl III board and the Colts and Jets figures. Amazingly, the board still works!
  9. I got started in electric football with a 500 game that had the old yellow and red teams in two poses back in the early 60s. Next I got a game with the big yellow and white players and that was when I started to develop my solitaire league. It really hit me though when I received a Super Bowl III game with the Jets and Colts. After that, I began to expand my league by by buying more teams (beginning with my favorite teams the Eagles and Packers) whenever I had extra money. The dark jersey Colts and white jersey Jets were the real beginning though.
  10. Really nice job, - I remember Oscar Reed - although as a Packer fan, I'm not too happy with him kicking the Packer's helmet! ๐Ÿ˜Š
  11. I agree with all those suggestions, although I liked the Eagles uniforms of the 60s with the shoulder stripes, arm stripes and the player's number in between on the arm.
  12. Great to see someone else is using the players of old! My current league has "all stars" who played from 1960 through 1999 on each of my 16 teams.
  13. I agree. The classic uniforms from the 60s and 70s were the best in my opinion.
  14. Really nice. I'm a Packers fan, but the Bears look really good!
  15. Roller, that's why I don't let my wife know about this stuff! ๐Ÿ˜Š
  16. Wow, really excellent!. My brother is a Vikings fan, but not a fan of Cousins, so probably good you are working on another couple QBs! ๐Ÿ˜Š
  17. I'm not a Chiefs fan, but those guys are Amazing!!! Fantastic job!
  18. Just to clarify, I adjust everyone but the receiver making the catch, as he is concentrating on catching the ball at first, but then at the next stop, I adjust everyone including the receiver.. Since I'm playing a solitaire league and use a multi-stop system, time is not an issue for me, which is one reason my games take so llllllloooonnnngggg to play.๐Ÿ˜Š
  19. I adjust every player, including blockers and defenders. I look at it as reacting to the ball.
  20. Benoit, No Dave provided the followwng in another in another topic: "As with all boards, motor placement is important. The old rules of "measure twice and cut once" applies, though in a different way. Before you attach the motor to the underside of the board, just add the batteries, and let the motor run of top of the board. Try it out in a few different spots. Best experience has shown that a motor will work best under one of the two "50's" on the field, that is, midfield, but not center of the field. The old games used a corner of the end zone, and that still seems to be a good place." I took his advice and ran my two motors on top of the board before attaching them to the underside of my field (48"x24"). I ended up placing them at opposite corners of the board. Hope this helps.
  21. Roller, I like the Eagles score over the Cowboys! Go Birds!๐Ÿ˜Š
  22. Thanks everyone. All good ideas, but truthfully, I think I like the laser level best. I use dice to determine offensive and defensive formations and whether to run or pass, but not sure I like it for first down determination. May try it to see how it works though. Thanks again.
  23. Not sure if this answers your question, but this is how I determine who gets the fastest bases in my solitaire league. I rate all the players in my league (NFL players on 16 teams) by position (QBs, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, guards, tackles, centers, defensive ends, defensive tackles, middle linebackers, outside linebackers, corners, strong safeties and free safeties) based on my arbitrary view of how each one relates to the others in their position, numbering them from 1 (the worst at the position) to the best at their position. I then adjust their assigned number by adding the years in the NFL, 10 points for each pro-bowl year, 20 points for each all-pro year, 20 points for making the NFL's all-decade teams. Then I combine the wide receiver, corner, and free safety lists and assign my fastest base to the highest numbered player and continue on down. I do the same for tight ends and strong safeties, then running backs, quarterbacks , middle and outside linebackers, then guards and defensive ends, then centers, tackles, and defensive tackles. Since i play a 16 week schedule with 16 teams and it takes me 3 weeks to play a game, I don't have to do this ranking very often. I'm old and retired, so I have some time on my hands. ๐Ÿ˜Š
