FOOSBALL WEBRINGS:
WebRings are where related subject web sites have banded together to form their sites into linked circles. Through navigation links found most often at the bottom of WebRing member pages, you can travel to all or any of the sites in a Ring. You can navigate through a Ring by going to the next or previous site, or list the next or previous five sites in the Ring. You can also jump to a random site in the Ring, or survey all the sites that make up the Ring. 

 

FOOSBALL NEWSGROUPS/MESSAGE BOARDS/LISTSERVERS/CHATROOMS:
Note: These are public message "forums" players can use to discuss foosball with each other.

Newsgroups: These Internet Usenet groups are like bulletin boards, where people can leave ("post") messages and others can "post" responses, with both message and responses staying on the newsgroup for up to a month or so. You must have your newsreader software configured to access newsgroups (unless you access web-based archives of their messages, such as Deja.com or Remarq.com listed below).

  • Rec.Sport.Table-Soccer - The primary Usenet newsgroup for foosers to discuss foosball with each other.
  • Deja.com - Provides a web-based archive (back to early 1995) of most of the messages posted in the Usenet newsgroups (including Rec.Sport.Table-Soccer and Alt.Sport.Foosball) that are no longer available in the newsgroups themselves (Usenet newsgroup messages are automatically deleted off the newsgroup after a period of time). To go directly to the Deja.com archive for the 2 Usenet newsgroups, click on rec.sport.table-soccer Deja archive, or alt.sport.foosball Deja archive (Note, only recent messages will be displayed. To go back further in the archive you must use the "Power Search" feature, from which you can also search for messages by various parameters such as date range, author, subject, text keyword, etc.). In addition, you can also "subscribe" to the foosball newsgroups from Deja.com, which will automatically e-mail you a "Daily Digest" report containing all of the messages posted to the newsgroup each day. Also, at the Deja.com home page, you can type in a word like "foosball" in the "Search Keywords" blank field and click on "find" to search ALL the Usenet newsgroups (not just the 2 listed above) for foosball related messages. Deja.com also allows you to post messages/replies to the newsgroup (but you must join Deja.com to do that).
  • Remarq.com - Another web-based newsgroup archive, similar to Deja.com above (except the archive doesn't go back as far as Deja's). However, it presents the messages in the newsgroups differently than Deja.com does. When you click on the  message subject (thread), all of the messages in that thread, including their text, is displayed as one big message string (on Deja you must click on each individual message to open and read it). If you want to go directly to the 2 main Usenet  foosball related newsgroups (rec.sport.table-soccer and alt.sport.foosball) archived on Remarq, click here. Like Deja.com, the Remarq.com home page also allows you to search across ALL Usenet newsgroup (not just rec.sport.table-soccer and alt.sport.foosball) for messages containing a keyword, like "foosball". Remarq.com also allows you to post messages/replies to the newsgroup (but you must join Remarq.com to do that). 

Message Boards: These work similar to newsgroups, except that they are Web-based so that you don't need newsreader software to access them.

Excite Communities Based:

Deja.Com Community based:

  • Deja.Com's.FoosballLounge - A "Foosaholics anonymous" forum where players can compare notes, discuss strategy, and just talk foosball. Also has a Chat Room. An alternate link is here.

Miscellaneous:

  • Foosball Forum - A Web based message board created because of the frustration the creator had with searching and finding information on the foosball newsgroup (rec.sport.table-soccer, see above). This Web board has its messages organized into categories and subcategories, and then grouped by dates, for easy use. It also includes a search feature that allows you to search for keywords in the message, title, or sender.

Listservers: These are similar to a newsgroup, but messages come to everyone's e-mail instead of newsreader, and you can reply to everyone similar to replying to an e-mail (you must "subscribe" to the listserver to start getting the messages and replies).

  • Friends of Foosball Association Foosball-L Listserver - Based out of Kansas's Friends of Foosball Association (FOFA) Web site, it calls itself "Yet another forum for the discussion of foosball". This listserver indicates you can expect "Discussions about foosball by people who are going through the process of forming a league, and comments from a few who have been there already, advice and observations from pros and beginners alike... ya know stuff like that.".  Note: the old address for this Listserver is here. Site also has a Chat Room (see below).
  • FoozNet Listserver - Based out of Oklahoma, FoozNet is a discussion list server dedicated totally to foosball. Foosball players, promoters and webmasters can use FoozNet to let others know what's going on with local and major events, changes in websites or to just shoot the bull with fellow foozers. There is also an "archive" of this listservers previous messages available at FoozNet Archive (click on the "View the List Archive" link).
  • Association Francaise de Baby-foot Mailing List - The official foosball players organization in France's EMail Mailing list (for more info about the AFBF, see the listing in the Bonzini Related Web Sites section above).

  • EGroup (Formerly OneList) Foosball Communities - All EGroup/OneList communities give you the option of joining and setting your account up so that it works like a Listserver rather than a message board (see above). You can tell from this link how many members each community has, and thus get a general idea of each community's message traffic. Note: these EGroup/OneList Foosball communities are also listed in the Message Boards section above, since they automatically work like message boards too.

  • Garlando Babyfoot Association Mailing List - This mailing list of the Canadian G.B.A. (see the bottom of the G.B.A. home page) facilitates communication between players and promoting tournaments, sharing the latest news of upcoming events and tournaments. There is also an alternate address for this Mailing List on the G.B.A. Tournaments and Statistics page. Site also has a message board (see above) and Chat Room (see below).
