Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. My name is ClarkeM and I'm the promoting manager of the Qooty Tour of BigFooty. That's right, QOOTY. Ever heard of it?

Created by Mobbs decades ago, Qooty is a football text-based simulator where you can create leagues and teams full of whichever players you want. The BigFooty competition is about to enter its 28th season with the first games set to kick off at the end of this month.

YOU are your own player. You will have no impact on what the simulator does to you but you'll get to see your name up in lights for kicking a bag of 7 goals or getting 38 touches or even more likely, being benched for the entire game and getting spanked by 80 points.

==============================================================

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.

DO I have to do anything?
You will not need to do a thing!

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 :).

WHO are we playing?
We'll be playing a representative team from the Sweet F.A.

WHERE'S the fun?
The fun is in the banter between the two sides in the lead up to the match.

So if you want to have a game of Qooty against a representative side from the Sweet FA who will show you how it's played, then put your name down and we will answer any questions that you have for us!

More about how Qooty works:
Teams consist of players who are forum members, actual people such as you. The league started in 2001 and has its own board on BigFooty.

The matches are decided by a 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 here are determined entirely by the random number generating functions of a computer.

EG of the sim in action:
4 : 20.19 {rHFF} - Handpasses to okeydoke7.
4 : 20.23 {FF} - Pumps it long for Marlowe.
4 : 20.25 {FF} - The ball drops short of Marlowe.
4 : 20.3 {FF} - Marlowe wants to get on with proceedings.
4 : 20.34 {FF} - Chance for a goal here for Marlowe.
4 : 20.37 {FF} - That's one of those special goals. Number 6 for Marlowe.
Mt Buller Demons : 14.20.104
Gold City Royals : 18.10.118
The sim generates statistics so you can chat about your performance:

We will hope to play the game sometime next week.

We need 20 Sydney Posters to sign up. Cloud_, I choose you ;)
Who let this flog on the board!?! (ok fine)


So for anyone who might be looking at this thinking what the hell is going on.

The SFA is pretty much just an online footy game where your name gets popped into a footy simulation program called Qooty. Each week a game gets played and the program will decide how you perform; you can get 30 disposals and kick 3 goals some weeks or get benched early on and not come back on to finish with 2 disposals other weeks. Either way, you can s**t talk about it.

If you don't take yourself too seriously and enjoy a place where the conversations a bit more light-hearted with a bit more creative freedom, this might be your kind of thing. Some prominent Swans board posters that happen to be involved off the top of my head include; GotTheGoodes , TheMase , Kirkswan , sataris , miggs , McEvoy aka Cheval/MaxMinch, and a few others.

Sataris actually ran a game which used the same application in last year's Swans Board vs The Bye thread


So if you had a bit of fun and enjoyed that, then the SFA may be worth a look-see.

G'day Swans fans. Come and get involved in qooty - the game where your star full forward can never get injured! It doesn't matter whether you're a weird unit like Dane Rampe or serious like Horse; qooty doesn't discriminate... except against Queenslanders. fu** those guys.
