Hi FJGD posters. My name is NaturalDisaster and I am here to promote the game of Qooty, as played on the SFA board of BigFooty. Your moderators Red Crow, Gibbsy & Freight Train have been kind enough to grant us permission to challenge the FJGD Board to a game of Qooty this Monday.

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:

: Qooty - commentary and stats 4 : 2.32 {lW} - The ball is now with Taylor.
4 : 2.35 {lW} - Draws a man and then with hands to Allikat.
4 : 2.38 {lW} - That's a massive kick from Allikat.
4 : 2.42 {lW} - It could be a goal. It is a goal.

East Side Hawks : 10.7.67
Baghdad Bombers : 18.11.119

4 : 2.46 {C} - Allikat times his jump well and wins the tap.
4 : 2.54 {rW} - The bounce favours Taylor and she is off and running.
4 : 2.57 {rW} - Barrybran rides Taylor into the ground.
4 : 3.01 {rW} - Taking the ball is pantskyle.
4 : 3.05 {rW} - pantskyle runs into dockshark and is getting up very slowly.
4 : 3.09 {C} - Not enough pressure on dockshark.
4 : 3.11 {C} - docksharkblazes away at goal.
4 : 3.15 {C} - dockshark gives some to the crowd after that goal.

East Side Hawks : 10.7.67
Baghdad Bombers : 19.11.125

The 4 signifies the 4th quarter; the 2.32 is the time elapsed, and the {lW} is ground position (left wing). At the end of the game, a stats sheet is posted so everyone can brag about their performance:

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 30 seasons. There is much history, and career stats are a treasured source of banter.


WHO ARE THE SWEET F.A CLUBS?

What do you need to do?

Simply sign up to represent the Board by saying "in" or some other form of acceptance in this thread
. You don't need to do anything else, although the attraction about the game is bantering with the opposition team in the lead-up to the game: things like "You're the worst CHF in the history of Qooty"; "I'm gonna run through you so hard, they'll need a spatula to pick you up" etc. Skills like posting gifs and memes are also attractive; basically, it's all about having fun and interacting with people from other boards in a friendly manner on neutral terms.

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, and Patrick Cripps, Sam Walsh or Kade Simpson may join you.

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 2 weeks; it is an ideal time to join up.

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!

Good evening Footy Jumpers & Graphic Design! You might know me as the creator of the Gold Coast G-Force, Western Miners, Southern Sharks, Edli Reykjavik, Las Vegas High Rollers and Orange Crush. I started my journey on Big Footy about five years ago on this very board and have learned a hell of a lot in that time about graphic design while following the latest news on playing and training kits of many sports all around the world.

Three years ago, I received a PM out of the blue from a stranger inviting me to check out Sweet FA. I had no idea what it was, who he was or why I should join, and I almost didn't, but curiousity got the better of me and I went and had a look. I decided to give it a crack and today I come here with the privilege of combining my two home boards. And I'd love for you to have a go too.

The Sweet FA board is a very different beast to FJGD. It is a community that revolves around the game of Qooty, a computer-simulated AFL game where you are the player. Sweet FA is an organised league of 12 clubs that "play" Qooty. It's not for everyone. But it will be for some of you.

Some have had a crack well before my time and have since moved on. Gibbsy amassed 173 games for the Southern Dragons/Dragons FFC. fancyscum is currently on the Mount Buller Demons list. Others like The Half Back and Rioli8217 are currently active on both boards.

This weekend the community of Sweet FA is here to introduce the game of qooty and hopefully show you a part of the board that you may be interested in. Please get involved and have some fun with it. I love both boards for different reasons and I'm confident there will be others here who will eventually feel the same.
