FOOS: Be The Greatest © - A History of American Foosball (Table Soccer) - Movie Reviews

"At its best it is a damn convincing argument that foosball is the most exciting and greatest of all recreational games."

- Frank Rinaldi, Stylus Magazine


“This is the definitive history of foosball in the United States.I was very impressed by the insight and intelligence with which it was constructed.
I lived and breathed foosball from 1971 to 1978, but there were many gaps in my knowledge beyond Texas-style foosball. This history provided me, for the first time, a complete picture.
Make this video a part of your permanent collection-you'll be glad you did.”

- Bob Furr, Tornado Table Inventor


“Ismert draws on more than three years of countless personal interviews with many of the greatest names and players of the sport, both past and present. Collectively these interviews provide exceptional insider perspective on key figures and personalities, spectacular matches and tournaments, the “glory days” and history of the game, and on how the sport evolved to be where it is today.

More than the mere history of what to most is just a novelty sport, these two revealing stories in particular drive the introspective side of the film to the point where you come to understand these players… in a way not explored in any other sports documentary made to date.

In all, this film is a “foos” fanatic’s dream but also for most anyone, it serves as an intriguing look at a cross section of Americana.”

- Larry “Euro-Foosin” Davis, Executive Director, United States Table Soccer Federation


“Last night I watched “Foos” again and enjoyed it even more the second time! You have done a fabulous job of capturing the essence of the “foos” experience. You have also done a monumental job of telling the history of the pro tour experience in the U.S.”

- Kathy Brainard, Co-Author of The Complete Book of Foosball


“In one word… WOW! You did a marvelous job Robert, an excellent quality research job, excellent video/graphics production.”

- Jim Waterman,


"It gives a very clear picture of the foosers without the dullness of political correctness or the need to gloss over or enhance the image of foosball or its players. I’ve watched the film three times now and find it more perfect each time."

- Phil Kennedy, Foosball EZ Board Administrator & foosball historian
