I’ve used the APBA Football Master game to replay several seasons. The Master game provides the “ebb and flow” of an actual contest and allows the “coach” the opportunity to deploy multiple personnel packages to mirror today’s game or the single platoon system of yesteryear. On numerous occasions, I’ve matched team records and have come extremely close to replicating team and individual statistics.
My original purpose for creating this blog was solely to present my current and previous replays, offer “method of play” alternatives, share innovations, provide tools for evaluating individual cards, post links and informational tips to assist with preparing for and conducting season replays.
Of course season replays will always remain the focal point, however, it’s my goal and ambition to cover all aspects of APBA Football ranging from historical, solo tournaments, league play and the finer points of Face-to-Face play. To accomplish this, I’ve enlisted the help of the finest minds in all APBA Football. My team of authors have been former card makers for the game company, innovators, league commissioner, writers for the APBA Journal, and APBA Hall of Famers.
Site authors are Mr. Mark Zarb, Mr. Ray Dunlap, Mr. Dave Urban, Mr. Greg Wells and Mr. Phil Molloy. Site contributor is Mr. Doug Reese.

In this corner, we have the number 1 contender, Auto-sort, versus the champion, Macros, in a title bout for the “Most User-friendly APBA Football Standings”. In this title bout the APBA Football community is the winner because both methods are tremendous timesavers. I’m always looking for ways to improve all facets (preparation, method of play, data input and reporting) of my replays and am blessed to have really smart friends. Denny Hodge created the auto-sort version and my APBA Football brother, Mark Zarb, created the macro-version.
These standings are designed to use in conjunction with the team workbooks that I posted a few days back. All you have to do is link each teams win, loss, tie, points scored and points allowed to the template. If using the auto-sort workbook, just link to gray-colored section.
Usage is very simple, for the auto-sort just open the file and the standings automatically adjust for each team’s winning percentage. For the macro version, just simultaneously press CTRL R keys and each divisions winning percentage is sorted. Press a second time and each divisions win record is sorted and press a third time and each division is alphabetically for teams with identical records. These functions happen a mind-numbing speed.
I know which one is my favorite but they are both winners in my book! Unfortunately WordPress doesn’t allow macro files to be inserted into a post but if interested email me at email@example.com and I will send you the file.
