Hello users of undoubtedly the best board on bigfooty, you know me as your resident draft expert/ favourite mod/ funny guy/ winner of the 2021 'worst 18 team trade hypothetical' award, but away from all those accolades I spend a fair chunk of time on the SFA Board, a fantasy league centred around 'Qooty', a simulated football program!
The Sweet FA Tour of Bigfooty is aimed to promote the Sweet F.A to users that may interested, and I think it's perfect here!

What's Qooty?
Qooty is a football simulation program written by BigFooty's own Mobbenfuhrer, which allows a game of footy to be simulated and generated in text form. Basically, your username is entered into the program, along with 19 team-mates and an opposition of 20, and the program generates a game, with commentary and stats like this:
3 : 24.18 {C} - Pugsley does some crumbing and is away.
3 : 24.22 {CHF} - A long looping handpass to por_please_ya.
3 : 24.27 {CHF} - Handpass over the shoulder to sante.
3 : 24.3 {CHF} - A long looping handpass to MannumPower.
3 : 24.34 {CHF} - This will bring the house down if it goes through.
3 : 24.38 {CHF} - And the ball bounces through - unbelievable.
Allies : 9.6.60
South Australia : 9.3.57

3 : 24.43 {C} - That's a shocking bounce!.
3 : 24.51 {C} - ShaunDuggan hits the ground running.
3 : 24.55 {lHFF} - A wobbly old kick.
=====================================
SIREN SOUNDS FOR THE END OF QUARTER 3
Allies : 9.6.60
South Australia : 9.3.57
=====================================


The '3' signifies the quarter, the '24.55' is the time elapsed, and the {C} is the ground position. At the end of each game a game stats sheet is published so you can know just how good, or bad, you did, and rub it in your opponents face:

What is the SFA?
The Sweet Football Association is a board on BigFooty. 12 teams, which originally began mostly as club board representative teams but have long since hybridised and merged into teams of mixed loyalties, play two 16/17 game seasons every year, followed by finals, team and league awards presentations and much fun and banter. AFL allegiances are left at the door; people from different origins work together harmoniously - Port/Adelaide supporters, Fremantle/West Coast supporters, Collingwood/Carlton fans - they work and play together, and many people put in amazing efforts to keep the board entertained. It's all about fun and banter, based on the SFA team you play for, not the AFL team you support. The SFA began in 2001, and has now been running for 32 seasons. There is much history, and career stats are a treasured source of banter.

WHO ARE THE SWEET F.A CLUBS?

*Note; East Side Hawks are now the East Side Phoenix

What do you need to do?


That's easy, if you're keen to be involved in this tour, simply respond with 'in' or some other way to show interest in this thread.
After that, you don't 'need' to do anything, although I strongly encourage you to get involved in some of the banter that goes on in the thread, within reason of course, things like "You're the worst full forward ever" or "I'm going to shirtfront you out there" are a way to start, but plenty of people enjoy posting memes, gifs or just emojis to get under their opponents skins

The matches are decided by a random text simulator called Qooty.
The matches play out entirely randomly. The simulator produces a text transcript of commentary, provides statistics, and maintains a season. Results are determined entirely by the random number generating functions of a computer.

SO what do I need you to do?
All I need from you is just to say that you're interested in playing by posting in this thread. We need 20 players. If we don't get this, any name can be entered into the program.

DO I have to do anything?
You will not need to do anything (except call your opponent names :p )

WHO wants to play a stupid fantasy game?
Over 260 people, each season play in just our league. We couldn't care less if you think it's childish :cool:.
If you wish to live vicariously through your username, or relive the glory days of your youth, come try it - it may be for you!

WHO are we playing?
You'll be playing a representative team from the Sweet F.A. Despite their myriad of achievements, their performance is as much at the mercy of the randomness of the sim as yours is.

What if I want more Qooty?
After the game on Sunday, if you enjoyed the week and want more, then please post your interest in this thread, and a captain or representative from a club that is searching for players will contact you. You will likely get several offers: it is entirely your choice as to which team you join. A new season will be starting in the next few weeks; it is an ideal time to join up.

So come and see what the fuss and fun is about, with Draft/ Trade board regulars such as Lore, Mofra, Snuffaluphagus, Pie 4 Life and Bastyy

The rules of bigfooty and the board still apply, so Bastyy is the only draft watcher you're allowed to mock for their rankings

Would you like to fill in for just the exhibition match then? All the same fun with none of the commitment
Sorry man, I have no idea what this is all about.

I stay away from fantasy football, because I value my marriage.

You don’t have to do anything, they just substitute your name into a computer and it’ll spit out a game commentary where I passed you the ball and you apparently kicked a goal. Nothing you do can control what the sim does, it’s totally random and each game is different. The tournament has all the usual things like seasons and fixtures, ladders and finals and such.

The main thing that people do is the banter in the lead up to the game each week, where I get to bitch at Bangers for his supremely poor efforts and laugh at P4L for getting subbed off 10 minutes into a final and not coming back on :)

But even that isn’t obligatory, I think I only posted more than a handful of times about twice last season 😂 some weeks I didn't post at all. But effectively it’s a social thing more than a serious type of thing and you just chat when you feel like it.

For the purposes of this thread you don’t have to sign up for the SFA, it’s just a one off game with a bunch of us draft board people playing against the all stars so you can get a taste of it.

You mean like the Lions board.

As long as it doesn’t clog up my notifications you can throw my name in, but I am unlikely to participate in the banter, as I’m pretty sure I’ll replace PMBangers as the draft board patsy.

With spelling and grammar like that, who wouldn't want to sign up?

Come one come all to the SFA... sick of uppity PMBangers telling you how rubbish your draft picks are? Seen 5 mins of a player whom you barely knew and think hes the next GOAT ? Why not come and bag the exact experts who told you to ignore that flash article in the Sun (See every Bastyy Post)?

Plenty of other useless people to comfort you and tell you how your team wont make the finals... or people to lord over as you escape the grind of thrashing after thrashing by watching numbers on a page.... No Family, No friends? No social life? Engage in a banter of minds with some stranger on the other side of the country (and 20 years behind)... or feel free to ignore everyone and join the #IHateSupersuns muppet trending hast tag (Speak to the yoof Bangers)

You know it makes sense. I'm (not) Sam Kekovich

Try harder.

Draftees, this is the board to abuse PMBangers, if he takes you under your wing you'll end up like krakouers. :(
