DALLAS 2004: COLLIGNON RULES THE WORLD AGAIN
Belgian superstar Frederic Collignon
reaffirmed his status as the planet's greatest foosball player with a
performance at the recent World Championships that must go down as one of the
greatest ever. For the third time in the past five years Frederico won all three
major open competitions at the Dallas event and put on a final day display of
foosball excellence that won't soon be forgotten by anyone who was there to
Collignon won the Open doubles title with partner Todd Loffredo for the 6th time
in the last 7 years and also claimed Mixed Doubles honors for the third straight
year with Cindy Head. But it was his performance in Open Singles that will be
talked about as one of the most amazing accomplishments in World Championship
history. After winning his opening round singles match Frederico was sent to the
loser's bracket by Canadian pro player Eric Dunn before coming back through the
loser's bracket to win a remarkable thirteen straight matches to earn yet
another world title.
During his phenomenal comeback run through the loser's bracket the great Belgian
knocked-out seven former world champions (with a combined 25 world titles
between them) en route to a loser's bracket final showdown with defending
champion Tony Spredeman. Spredeman won the opening game of the loser's side
final, but Collignon came back with three straight impressive efforts to win the
match 4-5, 5-2, 5-4 and 5-3, to advance to a match-up in the Open Singles final
with four time world singles finalist Robert Mares.
Collignon continued his incredible play in the final match, quickly winning the
opening set in three straight overwhelming games, 5-2, 5-2, and 5-1, to take the
2004 world singles competition down to one final 3-out-of-5 battle. In the
second set Mares, one of the greatest singles performers ever, again could
provide little challenge to the red-hot Belgian. Collignon won game one 5-4, and
then reeled-off consecutive 5-2 victories to win his fourth career World Singles
Championship in a performance that had spectators calling it the greatest finals
performance that they had ever seen.
In perhaps the finest single game performance that I have ever witnessed,
Collignon won game two of the second set in just over three minutes by going 3
for 3 passing from his 2-rod to his 5-rod, and 5 for 6 from his 5- to his 3-rod,
while also scoring on all five of his 3-row possesions. It was about as close to
perfection as you can get.
In Mixed Doubles Collignon and his partner Cindy Head, who had won the event in
both 2002 and 2003, faced Billy Pappas and Melissa Kegg for the title and
defeated them in a one-sided match 5-2, 5-3, and 5-3 to become the first mixed
team to ever win a major title three years in a row. Cindy also won the Women's
Singles title for the second year in a row, defeating Iowan Stayce Fowler, while
Moya Tielens and Joy Steward also went back-to-back in the Women's Doubles event
after winning in two straight games against Tiffany Moore and Gena Murray.
In Open Doubles Frederico and partner Todd Loffredo rebounded from a
dissapointing 2003 worlds event by claiming the winner's bracket to reach yet
another Dallas final. Rico and Todd faced Tony Spredeman and Bob Diaz for the
title in a match-up of pre-tournament favorites. Collignon did a tremendoous job
against the 5-row of Spredeman, while Loffredo blocked Tony about as well as
anyone can. But Bob Diaz, playing one of the best matches of his life slowed
down Collignon while also scoring and passing well to lead his team to a
hard-fought opening set victory by a score of 3-5, 5-1, 3-5, 5-4, and 5-4..
However, in the second set Collignon and Loffredo took it to another level,
defeating Spredeman and Diaz in three straight games, 5-3, 5-1, and 5-4 to win
the Open Doubles world title for the sixth time in the past seven years. With
his three open victories Frederic Collignon became the first player to ever
"triple" at the World Championships three different times. Nobody else
has ever done it more than once. His three wins also gave him an amzing 14
career world titles, all in the past seven years, moving him closer to the all
time record of 19 held by his partner Todd Loffredo.

TORO'S CORNERby mark torres
Superman vs. Batman?
So this is supposed to be a column about foosball (and it will be later), but
first I am going to shift gears a little bit and talk about one of my other
favorite past times of youth: reading comic books. When I was a kid, I loved
collecting comic books. I think in the beginning it was the cool covers with all
the action on them. There was usually a hero being held close to death somehow,
and I just had to buy it and read it to see how the hero escaped. But by the
time I was in the eighth grade, it was all about the story lines and the
characters. I remember the writers were incredible at adding rich stories and
substance to the backgrounds of the characters. Comics were a lot of fun.
I really liked to read D.C. comics. D.C. Comics has the Justice League of
America. The core members of this super group are Wonder Woman, Green Lantern,
the Flash, Martian Manhunter, Superman and Batman. Wonder Woman is a total
powerhouse Amazonian princess, a goddess to some degree, who comes down from
another plane of existence to help protect Earth's interests. Green Lantern has
a power ring that gives him unimaginable control over the laws of physics and
the elements. The Flash moves faster than the speed of light. The Martian
Manhunter has tremendous mind control abilities. Everyone knows Superman, right?
That guy is by far the most powerful hero in the D.C. universe. And then there
is the guy I really want to talk about: Batman.
You see Batman is a dangerous, dangerous man. In the D.C. universe he is this
dark shadowy figure, hiding in the corners brooding and plotting. He is a really
deep introspective guy always planning and always a step ahead. Although he has
ZERO super powers, he makes up for it by being a tremendous athlete. He relies
on strategy, guile and wit to defeat his opponents. But here is the cool kicker
with Batman: he is so far ahead and so thorough about his methods that he has
designed contingency plans to assassinate each of the other members of the
Justice League of America.
Batman doesn't fool around. He is brilliant at knowing his opposition. He just
goes about it very very quietly. He knows that looking down the road, his allies
could turn against him, and so he may have to put them down. So he has plans to
drop them one by one. He has a special weapon and a plan to weld Wonder Woman's
bracelets together (her weakness) and make her weak enough to kill her. He has a
weapon of neural interference to attack the Green Lantern and make his ring
useless. He has a sound resonator to disrupt the Flash's speed making him slow
enough to take down. He built a helmet to defend against the Martian Manhunter
and a weapon using fire (his weakness) to kill him. And for good old Superman,
he has a heart beat modifier so Superman can't hear him coming and he has a
single Kryptonite bullet sealed and secured in the basement of the Bat Cave to
drop the big guy once and for all. Batman, with no superpowers, is the most
lethal hero in town. And all the other heroes, including Superman, are scared of
So one third of you are saying, "How the hell does this relate to
foosball?" while another third of you are saying, "Mark, you are such
a nerd." Meanwhile the last third of you want to argue with me about which
superheroes would win in a fight.. I am only going to address the first third,
"How the hell does this relate to foosball?"
Well let's call Moya Tielens 'Wonder Woman' because she is our resident female
powerhouse. Let's call Billy Pappas 'Green Lantern' because he seems to defy the
laws of physics. Let's call Robert Mares 'Flash' because he has totally wicked
speed. Let's call Tony Spredeman 'Martian Manhunter' because he has a
devastating focused mental attack. And let's call Frederico Collignon 'Superman'
because the guy tends to be invulnerable. That leaves us with 'Batman'. Make no
mistake, that's Todd Loffredo.
Loffredo has a carefully planned utility belt of tools to systematically disarm
and take down each of the heroes listed above. He may not show his cards the
next time he plays them, but he has aces up his sleeve. And whether or not he
wins, he is going back to the Bat Cave to tool around with how he is going to
make it easier to break them down next time. When it really counts, why is it
that he always has the key block when he needs it? Why does he have the
dagger-in-the-heart clearing effort? Why does he have just enough edge to be
ahead by one point at the end of EVERY finals match? If you watched the Open
Doubles Finals this year at the Worlds you saw Todd block Tony better than he
ever had ever. And, it was the difference. Coincidence? Batman doesn't get
lucky. With Batman, you don't know you have been struck, until you have fallen.
And finally, Loffredo has been watching Rico play forward for close to a decade
now. He probably has Rico's game scripted on a file in the Bat Cave. He probably
knows exactly what Rico is going to pass and when he is going to pass it. He can
probably tell how Rico is going to react to any given situation. If he
wants to, he could probably push his buttons in ways that no one else knows how.
And we may never see it, but something tells me that if Rico had to face Todd in
a big money Open Doubles match looking across the table, no holds barred, Todd
would have a Kryptonite bullet with Rico's name on it. Rico would never never
even hear it coming.

Jim Stevens' 2004 ALL PRO TEAMS
FREDERIC COLLIGNON Although he competed in only two
of the three major events on the 2004 tour, Collignon put together one of the
truly remarkable seasons in the sport's history. He reached the finals in every
open event that he played in, winning five titles, including all three open
competitions at the World Championships. His extraordinary, comeback victory in
Open Singles at the 2004 Dallas event was truly one of the great individual
performances of all time. Frederico and partner Todd Loffredo lost only one
match (the opening set of the world final) during a season that saw them win
twice, including a sixth Open Doubles world title in the last seven years.

Consistency. "Rapid Rob" recorded eight top-5 finishes (the most of
any male player), including second place results in Masters Singles, Open
Doubles at the Nationals, and Open Singles at the World Championships. Mares

TONY SPREDEMAN After a slow start (no top-5
finishes in Las Vegas) the defending world singles champion finished the season

and 3rd in singles at the World Championships. Tony also won the Texas State
doubles title with partner Billy Pappas and finished 5th in Open Doubles in
Minneapolis with his father Bud.
BILLY PAPPAS In his breakthrough year, 19 year old

at the World Championships with Melissa Kegg.
TODD LOFFREDO The great Loffredo earned two Open

years at the Dallas event.

off-year, Big Terry's 2004 pro tour season included a second career Masters
Singles title and a Mixed Doubles win with Tommie Bagley at the National
Championships in Minneapolis. Moore also finished 3rd in Open Singles at the
Hall of Fame Classic and secured three other top-5 finishes.

another solid season with three top-5 finishes in Open Doubles with partner Dave

career world titles. Cindy paired with Frederic Collignon to win a third
straight Mixed Doubles title at the World Championships, while also claiming the
Women's Singles titles in both Las Vegas and Dallas.
MOYA TIELENS Firmly established as the game's best
lady forward, Tielens continued her amazing string of performances during the
recently completed season. Moya earned seven top-3 results and won five
individual titles, including all three 2004 Women's Doubles trophies. Tielens
and partner Garret Scherkenbach rocked the foosball world with their amazing win
in Open Mixed Doubles in Las Vegas, with Tielens playing the entire event at the
