Re: I'm Stuck Between 2 Teams. Which Should I Pick?

I wouldn't necessarily assume the defense will suffer, the most prolific Air Raid team in college (Stoops/Mumme pal Mike Leach, and the Spurrier link with Scott on the Renegades staff and SJ on Leach's) has had a pretty good D the last few years, relating here with Alex Grinch (now at OU). Red zone ...

Re: Discuss Alliance of American Football here!

Well he did mention XFL at the end, but I don't know how anybody could have missed the AAF's collapse. Thankfully it didn't quite make it to Paul Pelosi telling Howard David at halftime of the second to last UFL game "Yes we will pay the players" but the last game in SA just seemed like a morgue and...

Re: Team names

Yeah it is but sometimes "safe and boring" is better than trying to be too cute (I went with Stars but that could be accused of the same thing), example, they could have been Guardians instead of NY, that gives you (playing in the same stadium) the whole "Guardians of the Galaxy" thing but that gets...

Re: An oral history of the AAF's Memphis Express, as told by players, coaches and front office execs

Looks like the whole thing went better than the Orlando Predators revival under AFL legend Kenny "The Glove" McIntyre, but that's not an accomplishment. Good to see those interviewed are mostly in good spirits, though I can't imagine Adrien Robinson (had his card charged) or Taiwan Jones (signed wit...

Re: Spring League Megathread

OK by that token was the first forward pass a bastardization of the game? The two-point conversion? Now if you wanna talk college OT which almost completely takes special teams and defense out of the game and is out of hand (see LSU Texas A&M last year) yeah. And no I don't like the "shootout" propo...

Re: Team Identity Reveal Thread

How would T-Birds happen? That's the WHL team. Edmonton Oil Kings comes close, but the first Oil Kings predates the Oilers by 20 years

And Dragons is just fine. An added nod to Bruce Lee (as well as a final FU to Tarentino, who was quite frankly killed with Bill).

Re: Team names

In the first place, why would anyone want to be reminded of the snub the NFL perpetrated on St Louis? I think (at least for now) there’s a lot of anti-NFL sentiment in St Louis. Secondly, talk about an overused mascot!! Why not be the Wildcats or something (no offense to Wildcat fans out there) but...

Re: Team Identity Reveal Thread

End of the day good job. I do see a potential landmine in the form of Vipers if things go to hell and Randy Orton headlines Wrestlemania, cause you know someone's gonna do it: "YOU KNOW THIS LEAGUE WAS JUST PUT TOGETHER TO BE ABOUT WWE!" They keep momentum though and check all the boxes out of the g...
