Hello, friendly Fremantle Board people. My name is Ant Bear, and I am promoting the game of Qooty, as played on the SFA board of BigFooty. Your awesome moderators Taylor, dockshark and Allikat have kindly granted permission for us to challenge the Fremantle Board to a game of Qooty next Thursday, January 23rd.

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 Assosciation 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 28 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 Fremantle 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.

Who will be your opposition?
A team of the very best Qootiers have agreed to join me here, selected from a touring squad of 27. Please welcome:
cadsky
AceAndy
SarahSmiles
Barrybran
TedDougChris
Callums_Guns
JoshWoodenSpoon
pantskyle
Cadaver
AuntyBlindEye
Tony Lynn 15
Bloodied52
MWPP
TJASTA
Sab22
The Filth Wizard
The Half Back
Proper Gander
NaturalDisaster
Dingster

And established SFA stars such as TheInjuryFactory, Allikat and sportsmaniac89 will add a touch of experience to the Fremantle board team, if required
Want to know more about them? Just ask them, and they will proudly recite their considerable list of achievements.



As you can see, people from all club boards come together, in a world where AFL rivalries don't exist, and we comprise 12 fantasy teams who play 2 seasons/year for glory and badges.

The TL;DR version.

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 Matthew Pavlich, David Mundy or Nat Fyfemay 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 Thursday, 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 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!

Hi Fremantle board. Yes, it is me, The Filth Wizard. Here just checking out the talent for the Gold City Royals who are in the market for some fresh blood. Perhaps you know my teammate and dear friend/LG member CakeEater. Do you like him? Great. Do you not? Let's see what we can do about it.

Hello Freo fans! It's great to be here! Could you do me a favor and help a brother out? The Filth Wizard needs to replace his best rookie from last season.

It is unarguable that cadsky was my best rookie of last season however he was also my only rookie of last season.

Allikat goes alright. I'm expecting a leadership challenge. Sleep with one eye open TheInjuryFactory
Normally I am safe from the perils of Allikat ’s love of physical violence on the sporting field - but I am slightly concerned she may want to remind me of a few things* as she drives heads into the turf...

* Like kicking straight, or to players on our side, or why don’t I stick to the bench, I do less damage there....

It's been a while since you've been on the other side, isn't it? Now you're going to remember what it's like to have your head driven into the turf.

I'm very, very scared.... In fact, given that we haven't held our B&F yet, I'm considering Allikat for all the potential awards......

The best rookies know the meaning of loyalty
Look, it’s a shame. I had him all geared up for a leadership role and to take him under my wing. Some people want to learn from Pavlich’s (fan service), others just want to be Fevola’s in a gang of them.
