These old reviews deserved to be fleshed out some more. 

The screenshot for Super Football seems to belie the review, but trust me, the two teams are hard to tell apart!

In your 'Realsports Football' review, you mentioned playing your friend for the coveted 'Richard Dawson' Cup.  Are you refering to the cult icon from the game show 'Family Feud' and the 60's sitcom 'Hogan's Heroes'?  And what precious metal (or dixie-cup like material) was the cup made of?  Da people need ta know.

...I just wish I could SEE the screenshots, I can see EVERY PS2, Xbox and X360 pic but only x's for 2600! Oh well, I HAVE most of these games, not that I play them....

I'll never figure out the appeal of football. It's a caveman game, dudes! "UG! MAN HAS COCONUT-KILLLLL HIM!UG!UG!(pileup)")
If you want fighting, watch boxing. If you want real strategy and stats watch baseball. If you want to relax play golf. If you wanna FIGHT go to war (in a videogame!)... football? The whistle blows, big guys plow into each other, and the whistle blows again. Repeat. Repeat. Repea...much much later, "Touchdown!"
...yeah, wheeee. Sorry I don't get it. At least Wrestling is
hilarious, the acting is so bad....

Don't compare football to baseball Alienblue. The're in entirely differently leagues...the National Fooball League and Major League to be precise. Seriously though, football has way more strategy than baseball could ever hope for. Hit the ball, run to the base; that's real complex.

That statement is entirely false.  Baseball has tons of depth and strategy to it.  Anyone that has played baseball or watches it will be able to tell you that.  I'm not saying that football doesn't have any strategy, because it does, but don't downplay the complexity of baseball.

Alright I exaggerated a bit. I have both played and watched baseball, and it does have strategy. I just can't see how anyone who's actually watched football would say it doesn't have strategy, and I personally think football has more strategy than baseball.

I'm glad somebody got this comical reference.  "Competing for the coveted Richard Dawson Cup" is a phrase coined by my friend Tuan back in the day to mock some of our big video game battles.

Ah, good old Atari Football! My dad had that game years ago and we loved playing it head to head, along with Hockey and Combat. Brings back memories.
