Topic: Foosball League starting in Edmonton!

Author: Will Original Message Posted: Oct 12 2012 3:31PM

Register your team for the Edmonton Foosball League!

The EFL teams play games on Tuesday Nights starting at 8:00. The first week for the EFL is October 23rd, schedules will be released on October 19th.

Teams are not allowed to have more than two Pro or Pro Master ranked players based on the Table Soccer Association of Canada’s player rankings. ITSF rules apply to all matches (
Team Captains must fill out and email the registration form in by Oct 18th – anyone can be a team captain, as long as they have enough players that are willing to join their team. Teams can consist of either 4 or 5 players. You need 4 to have a full roster sheet, with 5 you will have all 5 people playing matches, but some people won’t play an equal amount as others.

Each team must pick a home location. The location must be in a public venue that serves food and drinks (liquor not mandatory). The table has to be maintained to a reasonable level as determined by the EFL (no broken or missing men, rods lubricated, balls must be round). The table must be made by any ITSF certified manufacturer or Tornado.

If you want to play but do not have a team, you are advised to post on the message board looking for players. You can also email and be a sub for teams when they are missing a player. Team Registration fees are $20 per month and will apply until 2013 – registration fees will go towards a trophy to have team names engraved upon at the end of each cycle starting in 2013.

Each weekly contest consists of 8 matches - 4 Singles and 4 Doubles. S1 (Singles 1) plays against S1 on the other team. The players compete against each other in 3 games to 5. All 3 games must be played regardless of score and who wins each game. After those games are complete, the D1 (Doubles 1) teams compete against each other.

The visiting team sets the roster by filling out a Match Card by 8:00 pm on game day. Failure to fill out a match card by 8:00 results in a loss by the score of 120-40. Anyone on the team can fill out a match card; the team must be present by 8:15 at the location to play the match. Any players not present for their game result in a forfeit of 15-0 in that game.

The home team receives the match card at 8:00 pm, and has until 8:15 to fill out their side of the match card. This allows the home team to set which players they want to have compete against the other teams players.

Every tier will have 4 teams (or as close as possible to 4 teams in the lower tiers). In a tier of 4 teams each team play against the other 3 teams in a cycle. At the end of the 3 week cycle the top 2 teams in the standings play off against each other on the 4th week, with the winner moving up into the next tier. The lower ranked 2 teams play against each other and the loser of that match moves down a tier.

Email me if you want the full document with more information and tables attached to it for explanation.

A lot of chatter via text and in person... but nobody posting about it!

If you have a friend that you want to play with but don't have a team.. If you want to start a team but need another player or two.. If you just want to play but don't have anyone lined up yet... If your team is formed and you want to announce it...

Post on this board!

I heard something about Roger putting a team together already....

It looks like we'll have teams from Beer Hunter West and St. Albert, from Portuguese Sports Bar, Dukes (Darcy?), Elephant and Castle, maybe even the Crown Pub.

Author: Will Reply #3 Posted: Oct 13 2012 2:41PM

Of course we will probably have several teams from Time Out. Each table can host a maximum of 2 teams. So in a pub that has one table, you can have 2 teams. In Time Out 6 teams could be based out of it.

Author: S. Edwards Reply #4 Posted: Oct 13 2012 5:09PM

Team BTY is looking for a couple af players to play out of the west end BH. So far it's Christian an me and a couple of the beer hunter babes for spares. Send me a message if you want to join BTY

how are the tiered charts gonna be posted?

i love the idea about teams...i have been trying to convince people for awhile

Author: WELL-ZE Reply #10 Posted: Oct 15 2012 12:55PM

I had the same question Kimber! Perhaps we should use Tuesday for some QandA.

Author: Will Reply #11 Posted: Oct 15 2012 5:21PM

We'll total up the teams points from the "Western Canada Points" list and then figure out which teams start in which tier.

We should have more teams than this, I think a lot of people are hesitant to start a team. Even if you aren't a pro, start a team that you are the best player on... Talk to some friends that don't foos much or find some lower ranked players. Take that team and start in the lowest tier and then as you teach people, have them learn and you can win your way into the higher tiers.

Author: Will Reply #12 Posted: Oct 15 2012 5:51PM

Garry, Dan, Darcy, Conrad, Maria

Will Chris Ben Sam Cam

looking for another teammate or 2!
So far my team is Karli(me), Ben Crockett, Elliot Thomas.
One thing you need to know Elliot and I teach til 8:45 on Tuesdays so we will always be late

Hopefully we can convince the opposing team to maybe start some of the games a bit later......

Author: .Garry Reply #15 Posted: Oct 17 2012 3:59PM

Dukes has 2 tables and can take another Home team out of there.

Darcy is team captain and can name the long as it isn't lame. USWD?

Author: Darcy Reply #16 Posted: Oct 17 2012 4:23PM

As official team captain i hereby declare our team name as TBAM (These Balls Are Marbles!) and promote Garry to the role of assistant captain.

I now resign my commission as captain.

Author: .Garry Reply #17 Posted: Oct 17 2012 5:17PM

However lame it is, I like it...TBAM it is. Makes a sound similar to a Kimber????

Sounds more like TBAG. That's probably more fitting for your team

Author: .Garry Reply #19 Posted: Oct 17 2012 6:33PM

I didn't want to take name. I heard stories about you & Christian and just assumed that was a backup name for your team.

Author: Taras Reply #20 Posted: Oct 18 2012 1:31AM

Karli -- I haven't joined any team yet and could play for yours if you'd like.

Marko would probably be available also as the 5th.

Sounds good Taras! you can be our 4th!
And if Marko is available that would be great too

Author: Will Reply #22 Posted: Oct 18 2012 3:04PM

This is looking great! I think we should have between 8-10 teams for the first month! Send in your registrations please. - I can email you the form to fill out. I need names, phone numbers, and email addresses for everyone.

Author: S. Edwards Reply #49 Posted: Oct 25 2012 8:19PM

all this trash talking brings back some old memories of the way foos use to be in Edmonton. Mostly we trashed on each others shots like Garry - you're back pins suck! or Garry, you're defense blows goats or Garry, you're the flukiest player in Edmonton. Inevitably Garry would try to trash back with a comment on bad spelling

Author: RezaREX Reply #50 Posted: Oct 25 2012 11:31PM

Garry has a backpin? He hasn't shot it on me in years except when he forgets that it doesn't score. Garry has a defense? I just assumed he took a seat when it was on my three because the ball just disappears into the net after every shot. Garry is fluky? Well, I might buy that except the ball never comes off his bar fast enough that I can't save the junk.

As for Kimber? I just want to know how even when I screw up and miss the wide open hole the ball still finds it's way into your net. Seems like this tree is missing it's trunk...I'm not sure what that means but you're men have skinny legs apparently. He definitely got "filled in"

Pretty sweet leader board too Will. Interesting how the leader wasn't able to get 7 in every match like members from BTY were. Dreams of a perfect season dashed after week 1...such a shame.

Ahhhh...I'm feeling almost nostalgic. I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up driving to Rosario's next Tuesday by accident, thinking the whole way about how I'm gonna lay a beat down on Trynchuck, Dale C, Shane, Lance and maybe throw in some Ustina, Shields and that new kid Stranks for seasoning.

BRING IT!!!!!!!!!!!

Author: S. Edwards Reply #51 Posted: Oct 26 2012 8:38AM

Christian, you know the points lists and and leader boards are only posted for the glorification of Wills massive ego! They will be manipulated to find a way to always have Will on top! It's truly a shame how not one member of the "Elite" foosball team didn't win every game they played lololol!

After we put the hurt on the Elite team on Tuesday we might want to change our team name on Wednesday to "BTY - Beat Them Yesterday"

Author: Will Reply #52 Posted: Oct 26 2012 1:26PM

Sorry Christian and Simon, next time should I sort it Alphabetically? That is how we could get you two higher than me on a points list

I find it funny that you guys talk about not losing a game.. You dangled Ray and Kyle like cherry's against the other teams pro's because you are busy statboosting by partnering up with each other.

At least Ben and I (the two pro's on our team) partnered up with our amateur players in all of our doubles matches.

Speaking of statboosting... we play you guys this week.

Here is my challenge. When you set your roster against us... don't HIDE from me. I want one of you to play me in singles and I want to play both of you in doubles.

I know.. I know... its not good strategy for your team to have your two best players rendered ineffective by putting them against me.. but bring it anyway. I think you two might be foolish enough to bend over and take it.

Author: Will Reply #53 Posted: Oct 26 2012 1:40PM

Ugh. the first dog is peeing on Christian... but the other one appears to have missed Simon.

Yeah but you guys had the choice first. You could have had Simon with you and Simon with Ray, then Christian with you and Christian with Ray.

Seeing as I laid down the challenge... I think you are right Kyle, Christian and Simon are so scared they won't even acknowledge it, much less accept it.

Author: S. Edwards Reply #58 Posted: Oct 26 2012 5:19PM

Very mediocre come back Will. I expected a more cerebral response.
Anyway, it didn't really matter how we chose our roster against Foosball Elementary. We still would have won. Truth is you couldn't get a perfect night against a weak stick pilon team like ALLGAY - sorry I mean ALLDAY

Author: Will Reply #59 Posted: Oct 26 2012 5:52PM

My team is in first place in the standings and I'm in first place for goal differential - that is what I call a perfect night.

Oh... one more thing... Take a look at this party!

24 Foosballs dancing with baloons!!! 24 Foosballs that found there way to the back of your net on Tuesday!

Author: S. Edwards Reply #60 Posted: Oct 26 2012 6:10PM

Nice one, very clever.

Author: Will Reply #62 Posted: Oct 29 2012 3:15PM

No trash talk between ALLDAY and Foos University? Roger is gonna double tap his way to victory no matter who he plays... Ritchie will eat Darcy for lunch if that matchup happens too, so I'm picking Roger and Mikes team to school FU all day long. 88-70 prediction!

Author: Darcy Reply #63 Posted: Oct 29 2012 3:34PM

ya, pick on the guy with one arm. Smoooooth.

Also, we wouldn't trash talk such an upstanding group as AllDay, those guys are all class.

I just know Ritchie will block you really well, I wasn't picking on your left arm anyway there gimpy.

agreed, I hope i limp out of the match with at least one good arm.

Author: .Garry Reply #66 Posted: Oct 31 2012 11:21AM

Ritchie bailed at 5, I had to get Dale T to come out and play for ALLGAY.

It took Dale a little while to get some of his game back-he hasn't really played much in the last few years, but he did a good job, and was an asset them by the end of the night.

Thanks for coming out(sounds weird to say that since he played for ALLGAY)

Author: C.A.L. Reply #67 Posted: Oct 31 2012 1:09PM

In summary the Team play event was an interesting match-up of some unknowns. Final Tally 86 - 84 for Foos Univ. over ALLDAY!

The evening started with unknowns also as table maintenance was required in almost every way possible.
Surface cleaning due to coke spilled from previous night.
Balls had been placed in the other table by "others".
Ball return adjustments and a broken man replacement.
Table leveling "attempts" and the Ritchie replacement.
.....ONE HOUR later from when the cleaning started and about 6 or so table re-openings some normalcy was achieved.

So despite all that having Dale T. accepting being a replacement on short notice and be effective was a positive in of its self. Thanks to Gary and Dale T.

Author: Darcy Reply #68 Posted: Oct 31 2012 1:56PM

I kinda feel like that's a poke at me a bit. I'm sorry things weren't perfect for you guys to show up early and practice, it's always my intention to have the tables lubed, maintained and ready for anyone who comes down but obviously that's difficult given the environment.

In the end though, we started close enough to on time, and not much later than we received your lineup sheet. Things went pretty smoothly from there. I'm pretty happy how things turned out and had fun playing you guys. Hope to do it again soon!

Author: S. Edwards Reply #69 Posted: Oct 31 2012 2:13PM

Table maintenance should be a weekly ritual if you are planning to run leagues on your table.

"The table has to be maintained to a reasonable level as determined by the EFL (no broken or missing men, rods lubricated, balls must be round)."

Since this rule is coming from Will who arguably has some of the worst maintained tables in Edmonton the bar isn't that high.

On a positive note, the table at the Beerhunter West played great. Balls were nice and consistant, surface was clean, Rods were lubed, no broken men or bumpers.

Author: Cam! Reply #70 Posted: Oct 31 2012 2:14PM


Author: .Garry Reply #71 Posted: Oct 31 2012 5:35PM

Table maintenance was done by the time we were supposed to start. Having beer/pop spilled on it in a bar is a fact of life because there are ignorant & stupid people that frequent said bar. Having the waitress clean it with Windex was a mistake as it left a slippery film on the surface.

Darcy always does maintenance on the tables prior to play. A broken man on the 5 takes time to replace and I did not notice it till we were wrapping to start.

Good playing by Team AllDay

Author: C.A.L. Reply #72 Posted: Oct 31 2012 6:24PM

Darcy no poke at you, your tables are better maintained than T.O.'s and some smucks spilling coke and not making any effort to clean up happens.

The table in question had good bumpers ALL around and the lubing was minor. A Team effort got things done for ALL needs required and I am sure you will have less issues next time.
Good to have Dukes as another location with at least 2 tables without blaring music and cool-ish beer.

Author: .Garry Reply #73 Posted: Oct 31 2012 11:05PM

"Ahhhh...I'm feeling almost nostalgic. I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up driving to Rosario's next Tuesday by accident"

Christian...did you end up driving to Rosario's by accident??? Heard you got pounded and thought that might be the reason.

Having Dale T out was nostalgic. Thought I was at Rosario's again.

Author: Will Reply #74 Posted: Nov 5 2012 6:10PM

The tables at TO are in fantastic condition. Sometimes things break (bumpers, men, etc) once in a while but we fix things 2-3 times a week. The tables are regularly leveled and tuned up, lubed, and have good balls replaced every couple weeks.

I guess Simon gave up on trash talking my results/skill set and had to go after my table maintenance skills instead... I can play that game too! Even your OWN team complained about the table at beer hunter having old slippery balls. I can't believe you Simon, that you thought they were acceptable after all the complaining you do about tables etc. FWIW it doesn't bother me at all, because I don't really have too much of a preference in which balls are used, they are the same for everyone that plays in every game.

Author: S. Edwards Reply #75 Posted: Nov 5 2012 6:28PM

Emptying the coin box doesn't count as fixing. Neither does the draws at the DYPs

Funny you would mention the balls at the beerhunter. When I got there on Tuesday I brought a set for the night. You even commented on how well the table played. Maybe you're still reeling over our singles games

I thought you would comment on my remark, but I didn't expect it to take so long. 5 days and that's the best you can do! Besides I told you not to take anything I said on this board personally!

btw - unless you replaced all the bumpers, the tables at TO are far from fantastic. I guess I'll find out tomorrow night

Author: Will Reply #76 Posted: Nov 5 2012 6:42PM

Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I just find it incredibly weak to go from trash talking a team (then getting smacked) strait to making fun of their tables. Only to pat yourself on the back about how well maintained your tables are.

I replace bumpers 2-3 times a week, my tables get used by Bob... so they require new bumpers regularly lol.

The table at beer hunter was fine, just like the ones at TO. The tables at Dukes are good too, its just the floor in the room that makes them play a little bit differently in my opinion but nothing can be done about that and again its the same for everyone. It matters very little to me which table a match is played on.

When we played our singles game the match was already over for all intents and purposes. Nice work on getting your team to within 20 in the second last match - next time try to beat us in doubles when the match is on the line.

To be fair - we split our 4 games 2-2 against each other... I went 4-2 and you went 3-3, we had good games in all our matches and I don't think that either of us can really claim to have won or lost the match for our team at the end of it.

I need a quick rule clarification, If I have Lance join my team, can he still spear other teams?

Darcy perhaps it's time to start up FU2!

Author: WELL-ZE Reply #81 Posted: Nov 8 2012 11:31AM

BTW spear is to stab something with a sharp object, spare is a substitute

Author: Will Reply #82 Posted: Nov 8 2012 2:21PM

I don't really have a rule in place for subbing, I think it would make sense if a person could only sub on one team per month... Any thoughts?

Author: C.A.L. Reply #83 Posted: Nov 8 2012 6:53PM

Would be good to start a list so "Spare's" can put down contact info/ranking where players can sub them in when needed after confirming their availability.

Keeps the league fluid and more competitive, may even allow some new players to try out the league where otherwise they would not even jump in.

Would not allow any Pro's on any other team or division.

Author: Will Reply #84 Posted: Nov 8 2012 7:03PM

I'd suggest you shouldn't be able to sub a player in for a final unless he subbed in already on the team that month also.

Author: S. Edwards Reply #85 Posted: Nov 8 2012 8:39PM

Christian and I can't make the finals on Nov 13th. Both of us are out of town. Since we can't sub a player in for a final we will have to forfeit.

Author: S. Edwards Reply #86 Posted: Nov 8 2012 8:50PM

Looks like Ray is out of town on Tuesday as well

No "stabbing"

Author: WELL-ZE Reply #88 Posted: Nov 9 2012 10:46AM

@ Garry 5 on 2, yes I will be bringing a knife

@ Will I don't understand the reasoning behind not allowing substitutes in the final (to clarify subs which have not played with us before). This sounds as though you are penalizing our team for having perfect attendance this month. How can we play without subs?

@ BTY/ALLDAY Can we find an alternative time to play

@ League admin Since we cannot have a sub for the final can Jamie and I play all games without penalty this time. Next round we will be sure to invite several subs, despite having everyone show up, just so we don't run into this problem again

i was thinking about the subs last night.

Tier 1 like hockey, they have there junior teams that they can draft upwards in case of injury.

We just need to establish junior teams, which can be pilfered for spares if needed. Also i think that if the tier one team has more players, that the extra player can go help out the bottom team.

One other idea i was thinking about was that the Tier1 teams should have to have a rookie on them, in order to teach more players the high level of play. After a month of playing with the Pros this player could go back to the farm team(tier 2-3)and could use the skills learned.

This of course is just my thoughts on making a fun and new system into a better overall system. Others may disagree.

sub up... yep
sub down... nope
rookies... already in play, no?

Having a farm team will also keep the rosters fair and balanced. No stacking any team for finals or the like.

I said "I'd suggest you shouldn't be able to sub a player in for a final unless he subbed in already on the team that month also."

That was more as a suggestion for the future than a rule for this week. I still think it is better to find an alternate day to play, I only posted the schedule because I needed to put something in there for a date. If the teams both agree to play it on a different night then that is fine.

As for Dan's ideas, I like that a lot. I don't think we should force teams to have a reserve team, but it is certainly an option. Just like EEFC has 2 teams, if anyone else wants to add a reserve team then that is awesome. That is how club's are built and established!

Thx for the clarification Will. I will chat amongst BTY and AllNight and see if we can figure something out

Put in rules having benefits and penalties toward "subs" or trades for not playing out on the scheduled league day (Tues). Even allow for a one time penalty free option per Team to cover needed scheduling adjustments.

Allow Women a point spot anyone they play against.
Imagine an ALL women team or just doubles?...

Women in Bikinis get a 3 point spot

The match between BTY and ALLDAY will go ahead Nov 15 at TIMEOUT SPORTS PUB at 8 PM. BTY will have Simon, Jamie, Kyle and Ray. From talking with Mike it sounds as though Rog, Mike, Carey and Dale will be playing (confirmed?). I am happy we figured out a time and place that will work for everyone

Yes , talked to Mike about this and Thurs Nov 15 seems to be it.

The match is at Beer Hunter, BTY won the right to be home team. Everyone on both teams is involved in an email thread that we clarified this, but I just want to make sure its posted here as well.

Also - people reading all this probably think Simon and I hate eachother or something.. and really we don't. We're pretty good friends and we text back and forth while we jab at each other on here. I think we both have a lot of respect for each other which is why we don't mind trash talking eachother.

I wouldn't come on here and trash talk someone who I have absolutely no respect for there game whatsoever like Garry or someone.

Its all in good fun when Christian, Simon, and I go at it on the message board, but once we bring Garry's name up its just not fair anymore.

Doh...I want to correct the spelling just to prove Simon right...but I won'

Respect is a dish best served warm.

Don't know what that means tho.

Surprised U didn't bring out the "terminator" or "alien" last week- Maybe that's why we won by so much!!!!!

Christian has gone silent by his play recently.

Simon- he's my biotch! Or at least that's what he sounds like.
