Hosts Battle Toads FC & LOAF'S LOAFS

The Tight Butthole Republic is an American USA Tournament originating in Pennsylvania, more specifically in the suburban-Philadelphia area. The tournament is currently in its 14th edition as of December 29th, 2013. It is internationally known as the toughest, most physical tournament of its kind, as many teams rarely choose to come back for a second try. The first season was marred by an advertising mishap, as Russian airline company Rossiya accidentally wrote the word "Sh**" seven times in their ad appearing on the side of the field. After this the tournament has moved on successfully, only accepting local advertisers.

History

There have been 3 editions of the TBR to date.

Points System

Teams will be awarded points for their participation in editions of the TBR. Every 15 seasons, The Willis Hong Perfect Human Being Award will be given to the team that has the highest total in such a period. The points system is as follows:

  • A first place finish will count for 16/8 points, depending on the amount of participants
  • A second place finish 15/7
  • A third place finish 14/6
  • and so on...

If the team also participated in the consolation Loose Butthole Shootout, they will receive points based on the above system divided by 2.

(Teams listed will only appear on rankings if they have played more than one season)
